Sheriff Mike Carona Corruption Trial Quote of the Day! Part One
"When are you going to write a positive story about Mike Carona?"
--Brian A. Sun, Jones Day defense lawyer for the indicted ex-Orange County sheriff, to me in the hallway at the Ronald Reagan Federal Courthouse in Santa Ana, California this morning prior to my response: "When I wouldn't have to lie." Thanks to an FBI and IRS investigation, Carona--OC's sheriff from 1999 to January 2008--is on trial for abusing his public office by accepting bribes and attempting to get a witness to lie to a federal grand jury.
