It’s not surprising that Larry Agran would want to avoid answering questions under oath about how his Democrat council majority in Irvine spent more than $200 million without building a single, major feature at the proposed Orange County Great Park.
But it is fascinating that Agran, who has a California law license and was a 1992 presidential candidate, thinks he can ignore a lawfully issued subpoena that compelled his presence Wednesday for a deposition in the city’s ongoing investigation into Great Park shenanigans.
The man who voters booted out of office in November failed to show up at the offices of Anthony R. Taylor, the Aleshire & Wynder attorney who is conducting the probe.
In response, city officials this afternoon scheduled a special session of the council for Monday when they will vote on whether to seek an Orange County Superior Court order forcing Agran’s cooperation.
Taylor, a recent California Lawyer Attorney of the Year honoree and a man who helped locate missing funds in the City of Bell scandal, has already discovered serious mismanagement and questionable spending when Agran’s political machine ran the Great Park operation for a decade.
