The Los Angeles Times reports that the FBI is set to announce formal charges in its ongoing investigation into political corruption surrounding California’s film subsidy program. As Pando reported earlier this week, at least five states have recently seen their film subsidy programs embroiled in major scandals, some of which have involved criminal prosecutions. The California scandal, which revolves around a powerful state legislator, is unfolding at the very moment the state’s legislature is considering expanding – rather than curtailing – the very film subsidy program at the heart of the FBI’s sting operation.
