State should take action against corruption, too
With the Bill of Information filed against the former head of the LA Film Commission, I assume that the media will finally stop talking about corruption in LA being a "perception" based on our past. That is, unless one thinks the past that is haunting us is something that happened between the years of 2003 and 2005.
Corruption in LA is not a perception. It is reality and it is on-going. Not only do we have a corrupt state, but we continue to rely on the Federal Government to unearth and prosecute it. Maybe it is only a perception, but it certainly gives one the impression that we in LA are accepting of corruption.
I look forward to the righteous comments from Governor Blanco and Mike Olivier, LA's Economic Development Guru, who is in charge of the film incentive program and who was responsible for supervising the recently indicted Mark Smith while Smith was shaking down movie companies.
In any case, I'm sure that an honorable explanation for this latest in a long list of sorry episodes will be found in Governor Blanco's forthcoming book.
