Elk Grove, CA—Sacramento Sheriff hopeful Jim Cooper, now facing a grand-jury complaint that he peddled power for of all things... Softball.
The top girls' softball team Lady Magic soemtimes practice at a private residence in Elk Grove. Some neighbors aren't too pleased by the field of dreams next door.
Jim Cooper spoke-out in favor of forgiving the fee, even though he's close friends with the property owner. And while there's no proof it's connected, Cooper's daughter later got a spot on the Lady Magic.
The Elk Grove City Council's decision was unanimous- forgive the fee and let the addition go forward.
