Cudahy Silva copy

Today’s Los Angeles Times is reporting that the former mayor of Cudahy, California, will be headed off to federal prison “…for his part in taking $17,000 in bribes from a man who wanted to open a medical marijuana dispensary in the city in southeast Los Angeles County.”

According to Southern California Public Radio, Silva got greedy and accepted “… a $5,000 bribe from the owner of a medical marijuana clinic…” and “…a $50,000 bribe from a developer who received city-owned land at a discounted price. He also accepted other bribes in exchange for his approval on a commercial development.”

Naturally, this kind of corruption could never happen here in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho…
