Los Angeles: The City of Fees and Conflicts of Interest

Hosted by

The City of Los Angeles has created a new job one councilman says will require somebody "willing to be gutsy and make enemies in City Hall." Will the Inspector General of Collections also make enemies of people and companies who owe some $541 million in unpaid taxes, fees and traffic tickets? Also, one of Mayor Villaraigosa's high-level employees is under investigation for conflicts of interest. On our broadcast of today's To the Point, after three years, prosecutors are just beginning to look at the ongoing housing crisis from Wall Street to California.
