continued Peter Q. Davis, who ran against Murphy for mayor in 2000 and 2004, later tried to get him to sell those ballpark bonds for a much lower interest rate, only to be told to get lost. "Murphy was well-educated, but he did seem like a zombie. When financial discussions were being held, he would just claim 'Staff says' or 'The city attorney says' this is what we have to do. Perhaps he realized the City's financial problems and, with no solution, took the politically wise action to hide the bad news." He adds, "It's now even clearer individuals broke the law. Do you think a new round of indictments of elected and former elected officials will now follow?"
If that doesn't happen, San Diego will be taking a step backward. Into the corrupt past it now disavows.
