The LA Times has reported that the former events manger of the LA Coliseum and Sports Arena collected almost $2 million from contractors while both venues were operating in the red. Members of the Coliseum Commission said they were shocked and angry to learn that finance director Ronald Lederkramer got a 17 percent, $25,000 raise, which has now been rescinded. The Commission has asked Los Angeles City Controller Wendy Gruel (who's also a candidate for Mayor) to conduct an audit.
