Huizar, facing felony charge, will no longer receive L.A. council salary, official says
L.A. City Controller Ron Galperin said it would be 'unacceptable' for Councilman Jose Huizar to continue earning his salary.
Can you imagine an easier job than being a federal investigator assigned to L.A. City Hall, where a pay-to-play culture has been entrenched for years?Federal prosecutors have portrayed Huizar as the leader of a pay-to-play scheme in which real estate developers were shaken down for bribes and campaign donations in exchange for help in getting development projects through the city’s approval process. In a 116-page affidavit, they alleged that businessmen provided Huizar cash, air travel, casino trips, casino chips, prostitution services and other gifts.
Two council members — Paul Krekorian and David Ryu — said Monday they want a formal review of the real estate projects highlighted in the Huizar case to determine whether their permits from the city should be suspended or revoked.AdvertisementKrekorian and Ryu said they also want to explore new penalties for developers and real estate companies found to have engaged in corrupt activities at City Hall.
“When these big real estate entitlement projects go forward and they are the product of fraud, the people committing that fraud should not be able to profit from it,” Krekorian said.Federal prosecutors have not filed charges against any of the developers in the Huizar case. They also have not identified any of the high-rise developments, or the companies backing them, by name.Read more: Los Angeles Times »
