Is the re-election honeymoon over?
As the mud turns to dust from the most recent political election proceedings in CD 14, rumors/chisme continues to make the rounds about some supposed legal issues regarding Councilman Jose Huizar.
.More after the bloggin leap.
Fitzgerald is no stranger to Los Angeles political drama, working pro bono as a Deputy General Counsel of the Rampart Independent Review Panel, which examined the Los Angeles Police Department. In 1994. In addition, he served on the Advisory Committee for the Office of District Attorney of the Los Angeles County Bar Association. He also served as a volunteer counsel to the Special Advisor to the Board of Police Commissioners (the "Webster Commission"). Mike in 1994 received the Maynard Toll Pro Bono Associate Award from the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles.
One observer pointed out the recent FBI investigation and arrests of City of Los Angeles Building Inspectors Hugo Joel Gonzalez and Raoul Joseph Germain
for accepting bribes to approve projects in South LA, as being part of a wide-ranging FBI probe of corruption within the City of Los Angeles.
While the retaining of Fitzgerald by Councilman Huizar is only speculation, the fact that "many within the know", mixed with Councilman Huizar's office absence of comment, only adds fuel to the speculation.
