Now that he's gotten discussing anal beaver glands with David Letterman out of his system, Jamie Oliver continued his publicity tour for Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution (premiering next week!) on The Daily Show last night. Jon Stewart asked him about being banned from the Los Angeles school district, and Oliver floated the idea that "maybe transparency is quite a good thing in a democracy." Maybe!

Oliver also seems to hint that there is some financial impropriety going on in LA? He says "There's elements of, I don't know, backhanders or certain things that shouldn't be going on as far as procurement of things is concerned." Here's the video:
