Newsday updates us on the Michael Fagen saga:
Friday, September 7th: “Prosecutors balked Friday at a chance to set a trial date for Long Beach City Councilman Michael Fagen, who is accused of illegally collecting more than $14,000 in unemployment benefits.
Fagen, a Democrat, was indicted in February on felony charges of third-degree grand larceny, petty larceny and 38 counts of first-degree offering a false instrument for filing.” [Via Newsday]

For those who can, read the full article here: Newsday - No date set yet for Long Beach Councilman Michael Fagen’s larceny trial. I would love to hear what the rest of the article says. Also, is Fagen still a Democrat? He was once a republican, then switched, but lately he’s been in disagreement with our other democratic council members.
