Is California Budget Deficit a Hoax?

“… I strongly recommend that you both take the few moments it takes to look for yourself at pages 234-235 of the CA CAFR and page 63 of the L.A. County CAFR to see these colossal cash and investment accounts for yourself. You’ll find $409 billion in that one state account, and $66 billion in one county account. Because we’re also considering $8 trillion in the state’s various ~14,000 government CAFRs, the L.A. County example is powerful evidence for comprehensive consideration.”

Surely this claim can be confirmed or refuted simply by asking the state auditor to testify under oath?
