|When the true person comes out of the closet it isn't pretty|
When I first started my investigation on Baldwin Park, it was hard to find a story to write every week because people weren't talking. Now, it seems like I have one every two or three days, and I can't keep up.
Exactly like the Mayor of Baldwin Park, the Mayor of Palm Springs is being investigated for the SECOND time by the Fair Political Practice Commission (FPPC). Mayor Lozano is being investigated by the FPPC for the second time. That story is written about here: Did the Mayor Lie to Us Again?

These two politicians, and I suspect even more, are getting a benefit from people by voting a certain way. So, they don't disclose who is funding them.
I bring up this story so that you see the pattern. How is that a Mayor in Los Angeles County is doing the same thing as a Mayor in Palm Springs? They all know how to hide the truth from us. And this isn't the first time that they're doing this. This is the second, which also tells you how broken our system is. How many times can they get away with this? They won't stop, unless the punishment is worse than the benefit.
And when the Mayor only pays $200 for not disclosing his lavish trip, of course he has every incentive to take another one. Wouldn't you take another great international, luxury trip for a cost of $200?
We need change.
