Residents of the City of Bell, holding protest placards are calling for the ouster of city officials arrive for the start of council meeting on July 26, 2010 in Bell, California.

The city of Bell just can't seem to catch a break. First came the scandal in 2010 where the LA Times discovered that public officials stole millions from the public. 

Now, a new report from the state controller finds the city's finances are in ruins. The general fund has a negative balance of more than a million dollars. 

For more on this, were joined now by LA Times reporter Ruben Vives, who helped break the original story of the Bell scandal.
