The latest in the scandal in the city of Bell, CA.  State Controller John Chiang has been auditing the city since the scandal broke, and in a letter to the LA county controller over the weekend revealed that the city illegally raised property taxes on city residents to pay for it's salary spending spree. They took over $3 million in excess and illegal property taxes!

The corruption being revealed is just incredible.
