Give the dirty money back
Jack Pandol | February 16, 2017

Today, The Desert Sun broke a story uncovering mass corruption implicating local politicians.

According to 21 felony charges filed by the District Attorney, the former Palm Springs Mayor and a primary opponent of Raul Ruiz, Steve Pougnet, took $375,000 in bribes from developers.

But Raul Ruiz also took the developers’ dirty money, as well as taking money from Pougnet himself.

Ruiz is quick to point the finger when it comes to ethics, but he’s the one with ethical issues.

Give the money back, Raul. It’s the right thing to do.
