OROVILLE, Calif. - District Attorney Mike Ramsey had some choice words for members of the Oroville City Council on Thursday.

The D.A. found several council members, with the exception of Mayor Linda Dahlmeier and Councilman Scott Thomson, in potential violation of the Brown Act.

The act, established in 1953, guarantees the public's right to attend and participate in meetings held by legislative bodies. Ramsey said this is the second time the council has potentially violated the act. 

The D.A.'s office was alerted on Friday to a report made by five of seven City Council members, of alleged voter fraud. Following an investigation, the D.A. found no evidence of fraud and questioned why only part of the council was involved in the report, and why the public was not informed of this transaction. 

On Thursday in Oroville City Council chambers, Mike Ramsey warned that should it appear the council makes another move that appears to violate the Brown Act, he would levy misdemeanor charges. 

During the meeting, both Mayor Linda Dahlmeier and City Councilmember Scott Thomson appeared to suggest that the other five councilmembers were colluding against the mayor. Thomson pressed Ramsey on whether the D.A.'s office would press charges or further investigate possible collusion between the accused council members.
