Attorney General Jerry Brown today subpoenaed personal financial records of past and present officials involved in the City of Bell salary scandal. He also ordered them to appear for depositions within two weeks.
Brown announced his office has set up a toll free hotline to report allegations of possible illegal election conduct: (866) 625-4400.
The investigation is aimed at determining whether criminal or civil action should be taken following reports of exhorbitant salaries paid to the City Manager, Assistant City Manager and Police Chief. The three have since resigned.
