The city treasurer of South Gate, elected to help clean up the corruption-ravaged city's finances in the wake of the Albert Robles scandal, admitted that he lied about holding a college degree and working on a master's. Rudy Navarro, 26, acknowledged in an interview that he made up parts of his resume after The Times made inquiries into his background and education status last week. "I don't know what I was thinking. It was stupid," he said.

The electorate is often discovered by pollsters to be skeptical of the trustworthiness of those in public office. Which means we think they tell fibs. Sometimes corkers. Rudy Navarro, twice voted in as city treasurer of South Gate, declared himself a college graduate working on his MBA when his only diploma was from high school. Is there any way to account for the risk of circulating a vita that bloated? Nope, says Raphael Sonenshein, a CSU Fullerton professor of political science.

Two men were arrested Saturday night on suspicion of kidnaping and felony hit-and-run after they allegedly forced a man into their car and critically injured a pedestrian at a state beach park, police said Sunday. Police Lt. Patrick Gildea said Rudy Navarro, 25, of Long Beach and Ted Fedele, 26, of Ontario were sitting in their cars in a parking lot at Bolsa Chica State Beach about 9 p.m. when Navarro's car was struck by another car.

A Los Angeles judge Tuesday sentenced a man to life in prison for sexually assaulting four older women in Hancock Park and Hollywood in 2002. Gary David Johnson, 44, received three consecutive terms of 50 years to life for multiple sexual assault counts, plus 35 years and eight months for robbery and burglary. "It was a very appropriate sentence," Deputy Dist. Atty. Sam Dordulian said, that "allows us to make sure he never gets out and harms other women."

In the latest blow to beleaguered South Gate, a Los Angeles jury found Monday that the city should pay more than $4 million to a former police officer who said he was wrongly dismissed. Almost immediately, some City Council members said they would appeal the verdict in favor of former Assistant Chief Mark Van Holt. The award would be insupportable in the predominantly Latino city of 100,000, whose annual budget is $28 million, they said.

The idea sounded good: some old friends would get together to celebrate the memory of Spatz, a defunct Huntington Harbour rock club. But by the time the reunion was over Monday night, many were wondering how good the idea really was. The lineup, at Night Moves in Huntington Beach, was to have included two bands, Underground God and Gypsy Trash, and an "all-star jam," possibly including members of T.S.O.L and Tender Fury.

Rudy Navarro describes being the treasurer of South Gate after the Albert Robles era as "going from 100 mph to 5 -- in a second." Guarding the fiscal health of a 7.4-square-mile city of 98,721 isn't what it used to be. The salary went from $60,000 to $7,200; Navarro won't be quitting his day job at an accounting firm. He also won't be able to manage the city's investment portfolios and funds, as Robles did.

A day after South Gate voters ousted four controversial city officials, citizens and recall proponents on Wednesday were asking themselves two questions: Is their city's strange political saga over? Or will it get even stranger? Council members who backed the recall said Wednesday that they might take the extraordinary step of asking a court to freeze the city's assets, saying they feared that the three recalled council members would fast-track measures that could leave the city bankrupt.

South Gate's new leaders were sworn in Tuesday, pledging to restore order in a city reeling from a Monday night meeting where outgoing Mayor Xochilt Ruvalcaba hit rival Councilman Henry Gonzalez in the face. But they face an enormous task. The three new council members and city treasurer inherit a city government teetering toward bankruptcy, awash in political corruption investigations, and riven by deep political divisions.
