Larry Agran Caught Taking BribesMoney From Great Park Contractors

Merriam's defintion of bribe:

1. money or favor given or promised in order to influence the judgment or conduct of a person in a position of trust
2. something that serves to induce or influence

The race here in Irvine is coming down to the wire with and what do ya know, Larry Agran is taking bribesmoney from Great Park contractors. Has he crossed the line here? I'll let you the readers be the judge. It's right there in black and white. He's taken almost $60k in contributions from people and firms with business at the GP. He's shameless. He's quoted in the Register article saying that the bribescontributions were for Measure R. That is an insult to people's intelligence. These are his own words...
"It is after all a measure that ratifies and implements two to three years of work in planning, designing and building the Great Park and charts a path to move forward," Agran said. "I'd be shocked if people who are involved in that effort on a daily basis aren't keenly interested in Measure R's success."
This is also the same guy that puts an ethics charter amendment through on lobbyists. Words escape me right now to convey how slimy this guy is. The Grand Jury should be all over this story. It's a blatant quid pro quo....Larry gets campaign bribesmoney and contractors get awarded projects by Larry at the Great Park. Anyone who can't see this or denies it is living in Fantasyland.

As usual, Stephen Smith over at the Irvine Tattler had the story first.

tylerh over at Red County has also joined the fray
