Carmen Trutanich in the District Attorney Race: ** Third in the Primary.:
Sure to be costly!!
P.M. Follow Up: NO UPDATED RESULTS TO POST
I have four feelings about the election results: I am ecstatic; I am happy; I am disappointed and I am indifferent. I am ecstatic about the fact that Carmen Lietanich did not make the runoff for district attorney. Given his name recognition, his endorsements from people I once thought had good judgment, the apparent size of his campaign war chest that enabled him to keep showing up grinning like an idiot in numerous annoying TV commercials — plus the fact that only he and Jackie Lacey had enough money to pay the exorbitant cost of a campaign pitch in the sample ballot — I was downright terrified that Lietanich would get enough votes to win the office outright. I actually prayed on it. I said, “O Lord, don’t let Lietanich win this race because I don’t believe I can live in a world that has Los Angeles County District Attorney Carmen Trutanich in it!” God is good
........ talk about political mood swings!!
