It's still pretty interesting how the local media tend to focus on stories at Los Angeles City Hall (four million constituents, easy access) over stories emanating from inside the vast LA County empire (close to ten million people, harder access.) But on Wednesday's show, I'm told that KCET's SoCal Connected digs into the ties between Supervisor Don Knabe, his son Matt Knabe, and the clients of Matt's lobbying firm, Englander Knabe and Allen. The investigation centers on county contracts awarded to American Golf Corporation, and includes good-government expert Bob Stern saying the overlap between supervisor, son and clients is 100 percent legal but raises ethical and other questions.
