A grand jury is investigating “criminal financial misconduct” of the Dodgers and related entities under McCourt

In light of (a) the exorbitant salaries curiously paid via Dodgers charities; (b) the almost total lack of income taxes paid by the McCourts; and (c) the McCourts’ habit of using the Dodgers like a personal piggy bank, complete with huge salaries paid to the McCourt children for do-nothing jobs, one should not be too surprised by this news:
A federal grand jury is investigating possible criminal financial misconduct of the Dodgers and related entities during the ownership of Frank and Jamie McCourt, a person familiar with the matter told The Times.
Authorities have requested documents from representatives of each of the McCourts, the person said. The investigation started early last year and appears to be focused on the accounting and propriety of Dodgers spending, the person said.
Hey, second time I get to use the Sad Frank face today. Good times. Well, for us that is. Frank McCourt and his ex-wife are probably in a whole mess of trouble.
