More on the Bell investigations

LA Times today reports that the LA County Public Integrity Division was slow to act on allegations of wrongdoing in Bell.

I got one of those form letters from the division a few years ago, too. Basically, they said, "If you give us all of the evidence necessary to prosecute, we'll take the case to a judge." I really resented that they expected me to do the investigation when they're the people with the power to subpoena.

Nonetheless, at least they've started going after a small fraction of the corruption in local government. Maybe that will at least send a message. I just hope the prosecutions don't stop on November 3.
