That story cited a report by state auditor Elaine Howle, which described how the General Services and Corrections and Rehabilitation departments had wasted $580,000 on office space they leased but did not use for a variety of reasons.
"Who benefited?" you wondered.
State audits don't always mention names of private vendors or building owners -- and Howle's report did not mention it in this case, either.
We have your answer.
The space was rented from a company called Hyundai Rio Vista Inc. in San Diego for space in a building located at 8880 Rio San Diego Drive.
