Convicted South Gate Politicians Sentenced to Ten Years

Hosted by

South Gate is a working-class city in Southern Los Angeles County whose last elected treasure served for ten years, until his 2003 recall by 84% of the voters. This week Albert Robles was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for plundering South Gate of some $20 million. He was even accused of trying to kill political opponents. We hear more about how the city went from the verge of bankruptcy to having a healthy reserve.
