Current Spin, On-Going Inquiry and Political Fact from CD 14
|What has become of the "Anti-Parke" known as Parque?|
Current Spin from CD 14 Election Campaign via Parke Skelton regarding DA investigation of Carlos Lira and Juan Carlos Jaramillo contribution issue.
Huizar campaign consultant Parke Skelton said he welcomed a look at "what is potentially a serious violation of the city's ethics law."
Then this on-going inquiry by the DA on Councilman Jose Huizar's past consulting work for the late LA County Labor Federation Chief Miguel Contreras's V.I.P. Non-Profit.
(David) Demerjian said his office still has a separate inquiry into Huizar that centers on consulting work he performed for a union organization while on the Los Angeles Board of Education. That inquiry was initiated in 2007. "We're coming up on the statue of limitations, so we'll have to make a decision pretty soon," Demerjian said.
Then the political fact on an investigation of now Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's campaign for City Council in 2003 via the Los Angeles Times.
The executive director of the Los Angeles Ethics Commission on Tuesday accused Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa of 31 violations of campaign finance and disclosure laws stemming from his 2003 campaign for the City Council.
If the Ethics Commission finds after a hearing that city rules were violated, Villaraigosa and his campaign could be fined up to $267,000, though commission officials are believed to be willing to settle the case for about $40,000 in penalties.
