Don't Cry For Me Lake Balboa or How Nury Spent $1,000 on a Hotel Room
Oh dear! The Cindy Montanez for Council campaign has uncovered another donnybrook for her embattled opponent, Nury Martinez.
Martinez apparently spent $1,000 in campaign funds for a two night stay at Downtown's storied Ritz Carlton Hotel at LA Live.
Martinez, who lives in Sun Valley, needed to apparently de-camp to DTLA for a conference there. Montanez was also involved in the same conference, but commuted from her Van Nuys home.

The rub is that Martinez (as has Montanez) receives City matching funds, one could make the case that the Council Member was spending taxpayer money on a glitzy hotel stay. To be fair, election law experts and advocates say that Martinez has likely done nothing illegal, still it creates a bad impression for Martinez.
The Montanez campaign however is making sure voters remember Nury's "strava-gances" in a recent mailer.
