Huff: Parks and Rec Scandal is Proof Government Can't Be Trusted

The discovery of $54 million in hidden money within the Parks and Recreation budget is a sign that government cannot be trusted and should not be trusted, Senate Republican Leader Bob Huff insists.

Senate Republican Leader Bob Huff (R-Diamond Bar) jumped right into his work now that legislators have returned from a four-week summer break and has called on the Governor to launch a full audit of every state agency.

Huff's request was prompted by what he called “the latest scandal to envelop the California State Department of Parks and Recreation.”

The discovery of $54 million in hidden money within the Parks and Recreation budget is a sign that government cannot and should not be trusted with more taxpayer money, according to a written statement from Huff’s office.

"Senate and Assembly Republicans have called upon Democrats to launch a wide ranging investigation into the slush fund discovered at Parks and Recreation, to hold full legislative hearings and subpoena witnesses," Huff said.

The Senate Republican Leader is also calling upon the Governor to launch a full audit of every state agency, adding that the one-week review that the Governor undertook isn’t the kind of action that taxpayers want or deserve, Huff wrote.

Senator Huff serves as the Senate Republican Leader and represents the 29th Senate District covering portions of Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino Counties. It also includes Diamond Bar, Walnut and Claremont.

Is this a confession from elected government official Huff?

California is in shambles financially. The liberals that run this state have killed the California dream. You can't blame Conservatives, because they have no say and no power. Yet, a Conservative finds some highly illegal activity within the Parks and Rec budget activity, and you call him out. Look at your own Alan, regardless of party affiliation, we should be applauding Senator Huff. Are liberals really concerned about fixing the problems? Or simply protecting their own? Seems to me, you struggle with principal, such a shame....
