PASADENA — The Kinde Durkee saga, where millions of campaign cash was embezzled, included money from Pasadena City Councilman Chris Holden’s campaign. Holden is running for the 41st state Assembly seat.
He expects to be able to reach out to donors for more cash to replenish what was lost in the Durkee boondoggle.
The Golden State ranked number two in political sleaze, according to a study by the University of Illinois at Chicago. Don’t worry this isn’t a bunch of midwest haters mad that it will be 80 degrees today in the beginning of March while they suffer through below freezing temperatures.
Chicago finished first among cities outpacing Los Angeles in political graft; New York state edged out California.
But this does come as a surprise considering the lack of transparency in our local government.
