CurbedWire: Ethics and Food

CITY HALL - Ooh fun. We received an ominous email from KNBC which we quickly forwarded to our friends in the City's Ethics Dept. They'll want to take notes. "On Friday, September 21, KNBC's 5pm newscast will showcase a major investigation of dirty political money in this city that asks -- and answers -- these questions: Which of the city's most prominent politicians have all benefited from laundered campaign donations? Why hasn't the City Ethics Commission ... cracked down on recipients as well as donors of such contributions? And which few LA politicians have voluntarily surrendered laundered funds as state and city laws require?" [CurbedWire Inbox]

GLASSELL PARK - A reader excitedly forwards us new pictures of the GP Fresh & Easy store, which now features signs all lit up, interior signage and shelving, and new trees in the freshly paved parking lot. We also hear from one of the national business reporters on Tesco watch, that a horde of international press people are ready to swarm to the first store opening, wherever that might be.
