Padres bribe city councilwoman (Moores gets off), Padres and the mob

David Malcom's storied past, Ralph Inzunza's busy lunches, SDSU's football scandal

Future ballpark site in East Village - the largest and most uncommon business venture in San Diego history.

Inzunza, feeling the heat generated by the May 14 raid by FBI agents on the city hall offices, released what he said were two years' worth of personal appointment calendar entries.
  • Fun with Ralph: Excerpts From a Busy Man's Calendar

  • Councilman Inzunza’s frantic lunch hours.
  • “Virtually every business day at the stroke of 12 noon, the 34-year-old councilman can be seen strolling out of his 12th-story city-council office, heading off to one of a chosen few downtown eateries and watering holes, such as Dobson's and the Grant Grill.”

Willie Brown. Malcolm used his influence with Mayor Willie Brown and staff in an attempt to set up a deal to allow Duke to operate that city's Hunter's Point power plant.
  • Masters of Deceit

  • Padres' bribes of councilwoman Valerie Stallings
  • “On December 14, 1999, despite urgings from the San Diego Taxpayers Association and others to delay its vote, the city council voted to push ahead with bonds for the new downtown ballpark. There was no public discussion of the Qualcomm concessions and no further mention of them in the Union-Tribune.”

All councilmembers except Juan Vargas attended, including Valerie Stallings, who had reaped thousands of dollars by selling stock obtained in an offering by Neon Systems, a Texas company controlled by Moores.
  • Are the Padres Married to the Mob?

  • “Jay Emmett is said to be an advisor to the Padres on deals like Metabolife and other sponsorship and marketing arrangements. An old friend of team co-owner Larry Lucchino, Emmett, 71, whose home base is a Central Park South apartment in Manhattan and who reportedly serves on the Padres board, has enjoyed a low profile in San Diego.”

Sinatra and the mob. Top row: Paul Castellano, Gregory De Palma, Frank Sinatra, Thomas Marson, Carlo Gambino, Jimmy Fratianno, Salvatore Spatola; bottom row: Joe Gambino, Richard Fusco
  • The John Moores Exemption

  • Stallings fined; Moores gets off free
  • “Valerie Stallings's guilty plea in late January to two state misdemeanors for not reporting gifts from Padres owner John Moores resulted in her resignation from the city council and a $10,000 fine. And yet the revelations of Moores’s four-year gift-bounty to Stallings have some San Diegans in disbelief as to why Stallings took the fall and Moores was exonerated.”

Leslie Girard said that “there was absolutely no knowledge” he was “personally aware of” that anything improper was going on between Moores and Stallings.
"I had a son who played high school football, and I wanted him to be recruited by SDSU. I explained this to Ms. Roush." A few days later, Sutton said, he got a phone call from some associates who had found out he had been an "informant" to Roush.
  • Football Scandal Rocks State

  • Booze, fraud, porn, strippers, and other collegiate sports.
  • SDSU’s Rick Bay had been forced to resign after a university auditor uncovered a 2001 photograph of a group of SDSU coaches, players, and boosters surrounding a topless dancer at a strip club called Columbus Gold in Columbus, Ohio. Written across the bottom: "Party Animals!"
