Luis Artiga, City Councilman of Bell, CA; unabashed hypocrite

Luis Artiga is one of four Bell, California council members that found it acceptable to scam (actually defraud) the citizens of Bell by receiving $100,000 a year for a part-time job.
According to news stories by the LA Times and others, this was a do-nothing job that clearly wasn’t worthy anything approaching $100,000 a year salary. In fact, it appears that Mr. Luis Artiga may well have worked less than 50 hours a year.
At 50 hours a year, Mr. Artiga would have received $2,000 an hour, which is obviously obscene to the nth degree. This is especially true when the average worker in Bell earns about $18 an hour with a portion of that going to fund Artiga’s unconscionable salary along with that of the City Manager, Assistant City Manager and Police Chief.
Luis Artiga’s Sham Apology
On Aug 7, 2010, LA Times reporters Jeff Gottlieb and Ruben Vives wrote a story titled “Benefits push Bell ex-manager’s compensation to more than $1.5 million.” (http://tinyurl.com/29oy75a)
In that story, Lois Artiga was quoted as saying he was “ashamed” after being told of the numbers. “I’m disgusted, I’m sick and I feel like crying.” [Regarding City Manager’s compensation]
Artiga’s self-serving and feigned disgust are proof that he missed his calling as a stand-up comedian. In fact, Artiga is a total embarrassment to well-intentioned, ethical public servants such as Randy (Duke) Cunningham and/or Tom Delay.
The only thing Artiga is ashamed of and disgusted with is the fact that he and his fellow thieves got caught with their collective hands in the proverbial cookie jar. Nothing more, nothing less folks!
