The cost of Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley's legal defense in a series of conflict-of-interest probes has surpassed $750,000, according to a report released Thursday.
The report on fund-raising activity by a committee set up to pay for the mayor's defense showed that Bradley owes about $310,000 to lawyers from three firms.
In the first six months of 1990, Bradley took in $140,000 toward his defense. He has raised a total of $560,000 since the scandal surrounding his Administration erupted last year. This year, most expenses have gone to attorneys representing Bradley in an ongoing federal probe of the mayor, including possible insider trading violations.
