LA Weekly piece by the great Patrick Range McDonald asks the very good question, "Who's Behind Janice Hahn Recall Effort."
Unlike the recall of Mayor Villaraigosa where blogger Phil Jennerjahn was a more than willing spokesman, the Hahn effort has remained somewhat of a mystery.
When the recall was announced in May, it appeared a bright constellation of South Bay political activists and organizations had jumped on board.
But while a significant portion of community leaders in Hahn's district would love to see her go, many who have been associated with the effort say they are supportive but not involved. At least three different Recall Hahn websites have been launched but again, no one knows who is in charge.
So that leads to today's conspiracy theory. Internet astroturf is abuzz these days in political campaigns. Do you think a phony recall effort could have been started by opponents to Hahn's run for the Democratic nomination for Lt. Governor as an effort to embarrass her?
