Who's Playing Watchdog in LA County?

Hosted by

Yesterday in the City of Maywood, Mayor Felipe Aguirre and two other elected officials survived a recall. The mayor is only one of many local officials to face corruption complaints and criminal charges.  Maywood has 30,000 residents with just 7500 registered voters. Eleven hundred voted against the recall, 800 were for it. We hear on the story from Matt Fleischer, senior editor at the LA City Beat, and Robert Stern, president of the Center for Governmental Studies, a non-profit research organization that looks at ethics and campaign financing.
