I'm interested to see if any other accounts were Beasleyed (or would I drop the "y" on that? Beasleied?) I would think they're going to have to do an extensive audit to find out what their true GF balance is.

It's got to be a gut punch for the city to survive the tax vote only to have this blow up in their face. If Skeete's (-$20MM) estimate is correct, and I have no reason to believe it isnt, they're essentially in the same place they would have been if the tax failed.

Skruggs is the only person on the council who has displayed any competence. It's pretty much up to her and Skeete to solve it. Alvarez and Clark are belligerent idiots. Martinez and Frate figure if they cover their eyes and plug their ears, the problem goes away. Knnack just stares blankly and talks about the good old days. Lieberman up and left.

Do they sell "I (heart) Glendale" t-shirts? I want one.
