Gustavo's Latest Commentary for KCRW: On Whether OC Needs an Anti-Corruption Commission!

Last week, the Orange County Grand Jury came to a remarkable conclusion: OC is a cesspool of corrupt government, and something needs to be done about it. It was remarkable not so much for its findings (where had the Grand Jury previously gotten its information from--OC Metro?) but for advocating for change. Of course, the usual suspects began blathering--Supervisor Todd Spitzer enthusiastically agreed and tried to take the idea as his own, John Moorlach emphatically laughed, while the District Attorney's office said there was little political corruption in OC, and whatever little there is they're on it and can you please not bring up Mike Carona?

The Grand Jury's report was the subject of my latest "Orange County Line" commentary for KCRW-FM 89.9.
