"Darrell Steinberg (D-Sacramento), president pro tempore of California’s state Senate, announced Thursday that he would not allow confirmation votes for California State Athletic Commission members Timothy Noonan and Peter Lopez to proceed, thus ending their tenure by the end of the year.

The news comes from the Los Angeles Times, which reported last week that California’s ethics agency, the Fair Political Practices Commission, had opened an investigation regarding CSAC members using their positions to secure free admission for family and friends to events they were entrusted to regulate."

No surprise to me. All this time I've been talking about how shady CSAC is. There's just too many times to count how many things have "happened" in California. I hope they clean out the whole state commission because I simply do not trust the CSAC. Glad to see some news that validates my distrust for them.

there are dirtbags in every buss, every walk of life, anything we think we can trust. It sucks but when human nature takes hold you are in for a ride. Exactly why I trust noone and believe very little.

Well this house cleaning has been going on since last year. I cant say I'm shocked but can tell you a lot of the under the table deals fighters had and promoters is no longer being given. Like the hole Nick Diaz thing and saying they had an agreement with the old head of CSAC. So it goes to show they are trying to get things fixed and back on track.
