This week on PBS SoCaL, we delve into the latest round of corruption claims against the Santa Ana City Council, in which a businessman alleges Councilwoman Michele Martinez received a $10,000 party paid for by an apartment developer.
She adamantly disputes that and is inviting the FBI to launch a full investigation of Santa Ana politics.
We also discuss:
- A judge kicks out news cameras from the Kelly Thomas police beating trial.
- Most of Irvine’s Great Park is set to move forward under a controversial new deal.
Voice of OC’s weekly news segments are broadcast on PBS SoCaL Wednesdays and Fridays at 5 p.m.
