Two points caught my eye this morning regarding the latest filings from our mayoral wannabe's...
Parks raised a bunch of cash which no one in LA expected, and Jim Hahn spent nearly two-thirds of the money he raised this period on legal fees (he raised just over $36,000 and spent $22,695 on attorneys Manatt, Phelps & Phillips L.L.C.). Hahn's legal defense fund is over $16,500 in the hole. Seems like all those special interests that usually jump to his defense aren’t willing to save him this time.
