Raids broaden corruption probe of L.A. County assessor - latimes.com
Boxes of evidence are taken from the home of Assessor John Noguez, who is the focus of an influence-peddling probe, and other sites. The Phoenix-area home of a campaign donor who has secured large tax reductions for clients is also raided.
Noguez's relationship with Salari has been at the center of an influence-peddling probe launched last year after assessor's office employees complained that Salari and his wealthy clients were getting special treatment from Noguez and his top aides.
A former employee in the Culver City office recently told The Times that he secretly and improperly slashed the taxable values of more than 100 Westside properties in the hope that their wealthy owners would donate money to help retire debt Noguez had amassed during his successful 2010 campaign for assessor.
