Council President Hires Three Workers From Brother's Campaign

November 19, 2010 11:12 a.m.

Outgoing San Diego City Council President Ben Hueso is under scrutiny for hiring three workers from his brother Felipe's failed campaign to represent the 8th District. Hueso says he was so concerned about the inexperience of Councilman-elect David Alvarez's incoming staff that he decided to hire the former campaign staffers. The workers will serve in Hueso's office until December 6, and will be paid $2,308 every two weeks to work on "time-sensitive" projects. We talk about the ethical questions that have been raised about the hiring of these individuals.
