A public agency that provides health care for Los Angeles’ poorest families has been using taxpayer money on lavish parties and alcohol, according to CBS2 investigative reporter David Goldstein.
Goldstein reviewed L.A. Care Health Plan’s credit card statements and salary information for 2012.
The agency’s executives spent more than $8,100 for a 59-person dinner at Roy’s Hawaiian Fusion in downtown Los Angeles. To wash down the meal, they bought 29 bottles of wine worth more than $1,100.
