Attorney General Jerry Brown on Thursday announced that his office would investigate the sky-high salaries of some Bell city officials, according to KNX 1070 Newsradio.

Brown's announcement came as the Bell City Council went into a closed session meeting that could result in the firings or resignations of at least some of those officials. The highest-paid of them, a man who could be the highest paid municipal official in the nation, was Robert Rizzo, whose salary nears $800,000 a year.

Reuters reported that he could end up seeing $1.5 million in annual pension and Social Security payments even if he's ousted.
