Union hack seeks OC supe seat

Steven Greenhut: Former Assemblyman Todd Spitzer, who recently got fired from his job at the OC district attorney’s office for alleged bad behavior, now wants to return to the Board of Supervisors[1]. Granted, anything is better than letting him become DA, which is the position he desperately wants to hold.  Spitzer is a grand-stander and his critics fear that he would use the DA’s office to go after political foes, which is why there was a huge sigh of relief in many corners of the county after he was booted from his job. Spitzer is hard working and very smart and a pretty nice guy, but he epitomizes the unbridled ambition that is so dangerous in any politician. He is a wholly owned subsidiary of the law enforcement unions and someone who zealously pushed for expanded pensions on the board. His return will be a gift to the unions, but will mean unending headaches for OC taxpayers. Can’t any of these politicians ever get a real job in the private sector? Or is that asking too much for the power hungry?
