CALIFORNIA BRIEFING / ORANGE COUNTY

Probe sought on fairground sale

November 19, 2009|Tony Barboza

The top attorney for Orange County is urging an investigation of the local fair board, saying its hiring of a lobbyist and law firm to influence the sale of the Orange County Fairgrounds by the state may have been illegal.

County Counsel Nicholas S. Chrisos asked the attorney general to investigate the Orange County Fair Board, saying members' use of public funds to lobby state officials over the terms of the sale appeared to violate a state law prohibiting officials from having an interest in a contract or sale.
