Fallout from State Parks' Hidden Funds

Hosted by

Remember the warning that 70 state parks would have to close because of a lack of money? Turns out the Parks Department had twice as much as it needed salted away, so-called "hidden assets" that top officials say they didn't know about. What about all those nonprofits that worked to keep the parks open, including bake sales at elementary schools? Was it fraud or mismanagement? Is it the tip of an iceberg? Will it cast doubt on Governor Brown's temporary tax increase on the November ballot? Also, Anaheim residents are up in arms over recent police shootings. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, can we talk about gun control?
