LA Budget Problem Still Bad

I wrote earlier about Los Angeles's money woes. LA mayor Tony Villaraigosa has submitted his latest budget that, while cutting costs, still leaves a nearly half a billion dollar deficit.

It shouldn't be surprising that LA is having such trouble balancing its budget, considering its top budget official, Miguel Santana, is an honest-to-god non-fuctioning alcoholic.

Mr. Santana exited rehab two weeks ago after a DUI arrest, and is now hard at work doing whatever it is he does as LA's top budget official.
