Steve Hymon checks in on his previous story
in the LA Times
to give us this update
A nominee to the El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument Authority withdrew his candidacy after sending a controversial e-mail in which he joked about contributors to a City Council candidate, a spokeswoman for Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said Thursday.
On Tuesday, Tony Scudellari sent an e-mail making fun of 19 supporters of Nick Pacheco, who is running for City Council. In the e-mail, which was forwarded to The Times, Scudellari implied that one contributor who is married is gay. He also joked that another, Michael Gatto, had ties to the Mafia.
Kudos to Steve for his fine reporting. Amazing what happens when shady dealings meet the light of day!
