Paper Further Exposes More Dirt On Larry Agran's Political Machine in Irvine

Agran: OC's biggest unindicted scoundrel?
​Is there more evidence that slimy Irvine political boss Larry Agran is a criminal?

According to an online column published tonight by Orange County Register columnist Frank Mickadeit, that scenario might be the case.

Mickadeit reports that local folks tied to sweetheart business deals at the Orange County Great Park, where Agran just stepped down as chairman, gave at least $174,500 in the last election to a political action committee based in Burbank. So what? Well, that group may have then funneled the money back to Irvine to quietly benefit Agran's 2010 re-election efforts.
That Agran, a Democrat, is a flaming hypocrite is certainly not news. He is, after all, the politician who created campaign contribution limits in Irvine and expects opposing Republican candidates to adhere to them while he routinely violates not just limitations but the principle that voters should know the true sources of money spent in elections.

Why would anyone bother with a third-rate hack of a politician who graduated from the Dick Nixon School of Ethics? Well, Agran controls Orange County's largest public works project, the scandal-ridden $1.6 billion great park scheme and has proven that those who reward his campaigns reap incredibly generous, no-bid financial benefits from the public park agency.

I get tired of the bias. when are you all going to report about people from the other side of the aisle and let people know what your agenda is. we never ss our congressman and with that despicable thing that happened in Arizona we will probably never see him. we need true representation and we never hear or see from our congressman and you never report anything about him except when he sponsored birther legislation and did not report about him not showing up at the debate.


we never see our congressperson not we never ss our congressman and why dont you report on what is really going on in the OC but wait this is the rag that has all of those sexually explicit ads


who is our congress person, you should ask and see how many times he voted on the floor of congress and how many times he has gone to car shows when he is needed in congress,


I am curious, Who IS our congressperson you are speaking of? My Congressperson was Loretta Sanchez before I moved, now is, (hopefully not for long) Ed Royce, or could it be Our Rep from HB (Please do not draft me to go to Vietnam) Roharbacher?


So what does John Campbell (who we've reported on many times in the past) have to do with Larry again?
