Jerry Brown Expands Bell Salary Investigation, Establishes Voter Fraud Hotline
State Attorney General Jerry Brown stated Sunday night that he would create a voter fraud hotline for people who feel that they might have been hoodwinked by campaigners in the troubled city of Bell.
Brown also said he would expand his investigation into the city's exorbitant salaries. Fox 11 News over the weekend reported that city manager Robert Rizzo was actually taking home a total of about $1.5 million a year instead of the nearly $800,000 that set off a scandal in the city.
Some residents reported that city officials went door-to-door and encouraged them to fill out absentee ballets; when the showed up to vote, they claimed, they discovered their choices had already been logged in.
Brown, who is already investigating the Bell salaries, was scheduled to hold a press conference at 9:30 a.m. Monday at his downtown Los Angeles office.
