With a budget of more than $1 billion, the first stop on the California Corruptour should be the state Department of Motor Vehicles.
State officials who show diligence at their job are not easy to find in California. One notable exception is State Auditor Elaine Howle.

The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has long been characterized as the embodiment of government ineptitude, but a series of recent events have taken the department’s incompetency to a new level.
