DAMM it! this is why I despise all addictions.
Nothing else for me to say.
This came to light from investigative journalism by the Metro. Thank God for local newspapers.
One down and there are 1000s more to go. I am sure if someone dares to dig into MV council members, it won't be that hard to find plenty of such monetary abuses with their expenses. Thanks to Metro for bringing down this 'too big to fail' big boy. Shirakawa is not an exception by any means and most govt servants think and act this way and they think they are entitled to everything. it is very shameful that many labor unions supported this man even after Metro came out with all these financial abuses. Anybody who supports these corrupt and entitlement mentality labor unions should be ashamed of themselves. I am no Pro-Business guy but people need to be objective all the time and should never take anyone's sides on any issue.
I wish the voters of the county's second supervisorial district better luck in picking their next representative. Shirakawa was a real disgrace.
"my gambling addiction went untreated for too long.." So ridiculously irresponsible how his statement refuses to acknowledge any person responsibility for his CRIMES.
Only a complete moron would buy any of that crap.
GO TO JAIL!
