Official Favoritism in Orange County?

Hosted by

Employees of Orange County told the Board of Supervisors last night they felt "betrayed" after an auditor's revelations that top county executives got unjustified raises of up to 33 percent in less than six months, at the same time hundreds of lower-level workers were being laid off and furloughed. The Orange County Register has reported the auditor's findings, the names of the beneficiaries and recommendations that could save the County $150 million. Last night was the Board's first hearing into the matter.

Note: We asked County CEO Tom Mauk and two supervisors to appear on tonight's program. All of them refused.
