Gustavo's Latest KCRW "Orange County Line": On Irvine's Deposition Derby!

Larry the Leech!

I think the only good thing to come out of the Great Park is the proposal to reopen Wild Rivers there. Everything else has been one giant mess of accusations, counter-accusations, counter-counter accusations, and a bunch of money being blown on...a giant balloon?

Now, of course, as Mox detailed last week, depositions are emerging from an audit commissioned by the current Irvine city council, depositions that the previous Irvine council majority under Larry Agran say are politically motivated because nothing he ever did was politically motivated. This mess of a mess was the subject of my latest KCRW-FM 89.9 "Orange County Line" commentary this past Monday.

You'll have to go over to KCRW's page to listen to the story--and you can right here. Enjoy!

Ridiculous!  Larry has been a part of Irvine's success for over 30 years and the city hasn't turned out so bad, eh.

Irvine may be thriving but Agran and his cronies steal from us taxpayers on a regular basis. I thought thieves were supposed to go to jail.

@GustavoArellano @20ftjesus What I'm surprised about is the lack of information on this rag concerning the origins of Sopa de Fideo!  (and a good place to get some besides Abuelita's.)

@fishwithoutbicycle  So why hasn't the DA charged him?  Does Larry reward his friends?  Sure, show me a politico that doesn't.

@20ftjesus @fishwithoutbicycle 

"Why hasn't the DA charged him?" Because the OC courts are corrupt and refuse to prosecute crooked public officials. 

And just be because politicos reward their friends doesn't mean it's right or fair...or legal.

@MatthewTCoker @20ftjesus @fishwithoutbicycle Conspiracy!!! Thieves!!  Bell officials got taken down with clear-cut evidence; so far, the Irvine city council audit has turned up ZERO illegal doings.  ZERO!!!

@20ftjesus 

Perhaps Agran has gotten very skilled at covering his tracks...after all, he's been in politics since the year I was born.

@fishwithoutbicycle  You gotta keep 'em separated...

^^My friend sang that song literally moments before his accidental death.
