The AG accuses the officials of defrauding the taxpayers.

Nothing, absolutely nothing is as inefficient and wasteful as the government spending other people’s money. Case in point – the Los Angeles City Controller said, “I’m disappointed that we’ve only created or retained 55 jobs after receiving $111 million.” For those who want the nanny state to have complete control over our lives and provide government controlled healthcare, LA spent $2,000,000 for EVERY JOB CREATED! How is that even possible? The LA city officials responsible for this insanity live in a bizarro world completely out of touch with reality. How can such idiots retain their jobs?
