Revelations have begat revelations have begat revelations in the unfolding story of Advanced Development and Investment Inc., the affordable housing company accused of defrauding Glendale and other cities out of millions in inflating construction costs.
Three months ago, a receiver appointed by a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge to oversee the company's holdings during a contentious divorce between two main principals issued a report stating that ADI inflated construction invoices submitted to Glendale. Revelation No. 1.
And then a Times analysis showed that nearly one in four campaign dollars received by the top four Glendale City Council candidates in 2009 — more than $100,000 in total — came from ADI subcontractors, their employees and their employees' relatives. Revelation No. 2.
