As described in an earlier article, the Beverly Hilton, in what they are calling a "reconfiguration" of a project which won a referendum by 129 votes in an election with 569 documented cases of voter fraud, is using a California initiative loophole to try to build a 375-foot skyscraper in a city with a 45-foot height limit.
