California Accuses $800,000 City Manager of Fraud and Waste

California sued Robert Rizzo, the ousted city manager of Bell who was paid almost $800,000 a year, and seven current and former officials, seeking the return of “excess salaries” and reductions in pension payouts.

The state filed a civil complaint in Los Angeles County Superior Court, accusing them of wasting public funds, negligence, fraud, conflict of interest and breach of fiduciary duty.
