Thanks to a reader for sending the full indictment of Ted Loza, Chief of Staff to Council Member Jim Graham. There is a very interesting transcript of a taped conversation. Here’s a taste:
“Individual No. 1: Definitely, and I want to thank you very much for this, and, you know—
LOZA: Thank you very much.
Individual No. 1: Very helpful for us, you know. Uh, and [Individual Number 2] wanted to really thank you as well for this.
LOZA: He does? What, didn’t he thank me or didn’t you guys thank me already?
Individual No. 1: Here – here. This is for you. And, uh, thank you very much for him. [Individual Number 1 handed $500 in cash to LOZA.]
LOZA: You know I need it. That’s why I take it, you know.”
