Goat - This is indeed news but your post overstates the point. These are merely allegations -- not facts. And the news article to which you link appears to have misquoted the Congressional report.

Sounds like a Republican smear campaign to bring down an up-and-coming Democratic mayor. KJ could have rested on his NBA laurels and gotten fat and/or gone into broadcasting. Instead he wanted to give back to his community and embarked on a career in public service.

He deserves the benefit of doubt.

Well, this is not surprising for those who read my earlier post on KJ and Rhee. They will do whatever it takes, it seems. The new Bill and Hillary! (Note that my position is not inconsistent with honoring Johnson and Rhee for their dedication to service.)

Of interest to me is how the Maloofs, Sacramento's true royalty, will come out on this. Will they back Johnson, who currently seems poised to offer them political support for a new arena, or their Lebanese brother Rep. Issa? (Scattered reports indicate that they'd like to move the team to Las Vegas anyway.)
