As the Navigant scandal broke into the open, Zev Yaroslavsky exclaimed: "For them to be contemptuous of the taxpaying public in this way, it turns my stomach." What a lot of hot air!

Yaroslavsky is one of the L.A. County supervisors who helped spearhead the closing of King/Drew’s trauma center and demanded the closure of the entire hospital, which serves a poor, working-class community! He and others like him shamelessly took taxpayer money out of public services and handed it out to the likes of Navigant.

They’re not shocked at corruption–they’re only upset their cronies got caught!
