Home of Scandalized Bell Official Toilet Papered
First he was charged with 53 criminal counts in a public corruption scandal that gained nationwide attention.
Now someone has toilet-papered the Huntington Beach home of former Bell City Manager Robert Rizzo.
The Los Angeles Times reports that neighbors awoke Monday to find streams of toilet paper scattered over the front of Rizzo's house.
The ousted official, who is free on $2 million bail, apparently was not home.
Rizzo is charged with misappropriating public funds, conflict of interest and falsifying public records.
Authorities say he and other public officials ripped off Bell, a small, working-class city, in a corruption case that involved $5.5 million.
