The Orange County district attorney has cleared a former state senator of accusations that he inappropriately lobbied legislators during a 2009 attempt to privatize the Orange County Fairgrounds in Costa Mesa.
In a letter Tuesday, prosecutors said they found no evidence that Dick Ackerman, who was a senator from Irvine, illegally influenced his former colleagues.
The findings echo an investigation by the Fair Political Practices Commission that concluded last year.
