LA Coliseum Is Deeper in the Red

Hosted by

The Los Angeles Coliseum is caught up in accusations of bribery, embezzlement, kickbacks and conflicts of interest that cost the publicly owned facility $2 million. Yesterday, the Coliseum Commission was told that losses for the year just ended will be $5 million, roughly a third of the operating budget. Also yesterday, the LA Times announced a lawsuit demanding nullification of a lease that gives USC almost total control of the Coliseum for 42 years, on the grounds that the deal was made in secret, a violation of state law. County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky is a member of the Commission.
