There's more on Mayor Bob ...
Even though he has been mayor only since November, he has another problem. He went to Paris (with his then fiancÚ). He said it was to attend a conference on Iran and that over $9,000 in travel costs were to be paid by a non-profit corp who had some involvement in hosting the conference and wanted him there.
It was checked by the Auditor for San Diego. The non-profit organization does not exist. Mayor Bob says he will reimburse San Diego his travel costs. He said his fiancÚ paid her own way. The Auditor is checking the bills to see if she did.
But then there were security expenses of over $21,000.charged to the City of San Diego for security to follow him around Paris and protect him. A side comment to this story was that the Security was not in place when he left San Diego so there was no Security at the airport or on the plane. Security began after the security team landed in Paris. The San Diego City Council is wondering why he would go to Paris for a conference on Iran. Who authorized it? I guess Mayor Bob did.
