Carona Corruption Trial Quote Of The Day

"A 'hubcap deal' was in regards to [then Sheriff Mike Carona's appointed assistant sheriff and best friend] George Jaramillo. A standing joke going way, way back [to 1998] while I was trying to control Jaramillo and Carona. George could be told that he would get a new car tomorrow and he'd steal it's hubcaps today. Meaning he was a short-term thinker."

--Former Orange County Assistant Sheriff Don Haidl testifying today in the federal trial of indicted ex-Sheriff Mike Carona, who the FBI says stole the 1998 election to win control of California's second largest police agency and routinely took cash and gift bribes. Unlike Carona, Haidl and Jaramillo have confessed to corruption charges.
