The Smoking Toilet

LA City Councilman Richard Alarcon has been indicted on charges that he didn't really live in the home that allowed him to represent his district According to this report, the evidence against him includes utility bills showing that the home was only using 8.2 gallons of water (about two toilet flushes) and 1.8 kilowatts of electricity (enough for a single light bulb) per day. Alarcon's attorney Fred Woocher calls the investigation "a stupid waste of time and money."
