You gotta hand it to developer Iddo Benzeevi.

Benzeevi owns Highland Fairview, a company reportedly the target of a federal probe that has engulfed the city of Moreno Valley for some time now.

For better or worse, the guys has gutts.

It’s been reported that Benzeevi has ponied-up $300,000 to oppose a recall of Mayor Tom Owings and Council Members Victora Baca and Jesse Molina.

The three are his allies on the council.

It’s likely to be a valiant unsuccessful effort. Recalls campaigns if run well, in more cases than not, succeed.
