** Mayor Sam Exclusive: Is the LA Times sitting on "Feuer-Shallman Ethics Violation Story"?

In a Mayor Sam Exclusive, we question whether the LA Times is sitting on a story of alleged Ethics Violations involving City Attorney Candidate Mike Feuer and Campaign Consultant John Shallman.
Has the "mythical wall of separation" between Editorial and News, crumbled again in regards to reporting on LA Times Endorsed City Attorney Candidate Mike Feuer? 

Mayor Sam has learned from a very reliable source of a possible LA Times story involving alleged Ethics Violations involving City Attorney Candidate Mike Feuer and his controversial Campaign Consultant John Shallman.
It is alleged that Shallman has donated $150,000 - 200,000 dollars in campaign-related work to the Feuer Campaign. This would be a major violation of Ethics rules which set the maximum contribution/ gift at $1,300.
Ethics records show that John and Lani Shallman, along with Daniel Shallman, have contributed the maximum amount each to the Feuer Campaign.

To say the lease, the above billings are at the bottom of the Mariana Trench level of normal Shallman Campaign expenditures. Thus, its fair to question whether Shallman is being paid through a third party listed on the campaign expenditures report (maybe for tax reasons?) and the Times, in the public interest, should non-embargo the alleged story from behind the real wall of agenda journalism.

You keep going after Shallman whom you obviously don't like. You hsould at least take the time to mention that under the law (and this has been upheld several times in court) John Shallman could volunteer some or all of his time and effort to elect Mike Feuer without it counting against contribution or spending limits. Unless you have evidence someone else is paying him for his time with Feuer, you are really reaching.
