Smile, You're On Carona Camera!
There's certainly one sheriff-busting investigative reporter here who probably isn't shocked by the revelation that Mike Carona maintained a secret, tax-payer funded, hidden video camera and password-protected computer system stashed in his office.
Apparently our trusty former-and-now-indicted sheriff took it upon himself to use our tax dollars to (illegally?) videotape conversations (and who knows what else) in his office. We'll just have to wait and see if Mike ever giggled, pointed a finger at some dark little spot in his office and said to the DA, Gotcha! The news was posted to the OCR's blog last night. Expect to see unedited clips as soon as we can get our hands on them. For now, though, not even the feds have cracked the computer code to see the goods.
