For the second episode of the Voice of OC Podcast, we delve into the district attorney’s decision not to file charges against Santa Ana Mayor Miguel Pulido over his questionable property swap with a city contractor.

We talk with Voice of OC senior reporter Adam Elmahrek about the reaction to the DA’s decision to not file criminal charges, as well as the conflict of interest and political ethics laws at play.

We’re still working out the kinks of the podcast, so please let us know what you think in the comment section below and feel free to suggest future topics.
