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!
