Did city look the other way?

This stinks.
Did city look the other way?: "Those owners, Peter Karlovich and Steven Herforth, hold political fundraisers at their Mount Washington home, including one for Mayor Luke Ravenstahl in May 2007. When the Bureau of Building Inspection threatened to close the club, they appealed to Council President Doug Shields, and then to the mayor's Chief of Staff Yarone Zober, who connected them with city lawyers.

After talks with the club, the city lawyers told building inspectors to let it stay open pending discussions that never occurred."
Scrutiny comes because a guy died, not because you live in a big house.

It sounds like another back room deal with Yarone Zober and our Mayor to help financial backers.

it is a backdoor deal...and when there is money involved, there is a pimp ready to take it.
