Re “State consumer chief quits amid cost questions,” March 28

Which criminal is more blatant, the one who burglarizes in broad daylight or the public official who fleeces the taxpayer under the cover of “expenses”?

Carrie Lopez, the now-resigned director of the California Department of Consumer Affairs, should be facing criminal charges for stealing.

This sort of behavior only escalates when there are no consequences for unethical behavior.


Keep digging, Times, until you have unearthed every one of these officials who find it so easy to dip into the public trough to satisfy their greed.
