Bell City Council Cuts Pay, Public Wants Heads to Roll

Hosted by

The Mayor of Bell, Oscar Hernandez, has claimed that City Manager Robert Rizzo earned his $800,000 a year by making the town "a model of financial prudence." City residents don't agree, as Which Way, L.A.? producer Gary Scott found out at last night's meeting of the city council. We also hear from a 23-year veteran Bell police officer who's filed suit claiming that he and others were required to pass out absentee ballots in city elections and tell citizens how to vote, and from a political scientist who headed the charter reform commission for the City of Los Angeles.
