This is the city: Los Angeles, California. I work here. I'm an ex-mayor. Los Angeles is a magnet for people from all over the world. Some of them run for public office. Inevitably some of them stray from the golden rule and rule for those that have the gold. That's when I go to work. My name is Yorty. I'm a dead pol.
In the meantime, video has surfaced of Essel's opponent Paul Krekorian, following the passing of a resolution recognizing the Genocide by the California Assembly (which received a landslide bi-partisan vote of 77-3), speaking at a protest at the Los Angeles Turkish Consulate where Krekorian notes his family lost members in the Genocide.
We will continue to wait for some statement from Essel.
