He has never even experimented with drugs (in college or otherwise). I can say with certainty that neither were involved that night.

As several of Mayor Tom Bradley's longtime allies lobbied from the sidelines, a developer who recently enlisted the influential group as partners was chosen Tuesday to build a $200-million office-retail complex on city-owned land in Little Tokyo. A competing developer's proposal, once viewed as a favorite in the stiff competition on the basis of its purportedly lower cost, was rejected.
