Mailbag: City Council, show us the money

An article in the Los Angeles Times on Thursday, "Lockyer, Chiang freeze money they got from developer," states "Glendale City Council members awarded $14 million to ADI in 2008 and 2009 for a single project, Vassar City Lights, despite warning from their own staff about the company's budget estimates."

Then in the next paragraph, "Money from ADI subcontractors and the subcontractors' families made up nearly one of every four dollars received by the top four candidates in the 2009 Glendale council campaign, or just over $100,000."

Connect the dots!

And, "Glendale City Council members said Wednesday that they are pursuing litigation against ADI to recover money they believe the company stole from that city."

How are they going to pay the attorneys? With campaign contributions they received from ADI?
