Bell Tolls for Corrupt City Officials

The corrupt douchebags involved in the Bell scandal have been arrested:

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that at least eight city officials from Bell, California, have been arrested today, with L.A. County District Attorney Steve Cooley set to announce criminal charges related to the officials inflating their salaries.

Good. The charges:

Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley announced charges against the eight officials who were arrested today, calling the inflated salaries “corruption on steroids.” Rizzo was charged with 53 counts of misappropriation of public funds and conflict of interest.

Put ’em away for a long time.
