HUNTINGTON BEACH (AP) — First he was charged with 53 criminal counts in a public corruption scandal that has gained nationwide attention.

Now someone has toilet-papered the Huntington Beach home of disgraced former Bell City Manager Robert Rizzo.

The Los Angeles Times reports that neighbors awoke Monday morning to find streams of toilet paper scattered all 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 Rizzo and other public officials ripped off Bell, a small, working-class city, to the tune of $5.5 million.

    Of course he’s not home
    Doesn’t he live in Bell?
    You won’t find Alarcon at his “residence” either
    How many politicians don’t live in their district?
    Yvonne Burke, etc

    If he was able to rip off Bell to the tune of 5.5 million – do really think he would be living in Bell?? If you believe so, I have some beachfront property in Needles I would like to sell you.

    This worthless piece of garbage, can lie,steal and who knows what else, and get to keep his fortune and probably do no time at all. I hope no citizen of Bell lost their home because of this garbage.

  5. Hopefully Rizzo can still use the toilet paper to wipe up all of his BS.
