Fresno City Hall is full of chatter about “Bonusgate.”
I’m talking about the big chunks of cash paid by Mayor Ashley Swearengin to selected employees over the last three fiscal years.
The Bee’s John Ellis broke the story – Thursday online and Friday in the newspaper.

The point is that these payoffs have been “dark money,” dark taxpayers’ money lavished on favorites furtively, well out of taxpayers’ eyes and knowledge. AKA personal slush fund
Make that “out of taxpayers’ vision.”
