Anaheim mayor resigns amid corruption investigation involving Angel stadium deal | Politico

Anaheim Mayor Harry Sidhu has resigned in the face of a growing federal corruption investigation alleging Sidhu sought to wring campaign donations from baseball stadium negotiations.
...
A federal affidavit released this week has jolted California’s tenth-largest city, laying out evidence that Sidhu sought to turn the city’s prolonged attempt to sell Angel Stadium — home of the major league Angels — to his personal advantage.

Man, everything involving the Angels is toxic AF. Artie has not done a good job with the image game in his tenure as owner.

How crooked and/or dumb must Sidhu be to get caught considering that all of these stadium payola deals likely involve at least some amount of shady closed-door backroom dealing that none of the principals would want to come to light?

For some, their greed affects their judgement as badly as addictions affect the decisions of their addicts. Logic and reason become similar warped and convoluted under Sidhu's brand of psychopathy.
