His voters didn't make his decisions for him. At some point he just determined to be shady and thought he could get away with it.

So (correct me if I'm wrong) but isn't the Chinese Billionaire who bribed Huizar, isn't it his hotel Bass just signed another year for homeless to live in?

Serious question because I haven't been keeping up with this scandal, how did he go from the darling of progressives in Los Angeles to the very face of corruption itself?
