  1. This is the findings for only for 2010 to 2012. Why is it taken so long and what do we expect for 2013 to 2015 of contributors that did not get the message. How many of those same contributors have continue to do the same? We need a follow up series on Huizar campaign contributions.

    • Well said, Teresa!

      We all know Developers run city hall, and they aren’t doing it with $500 contributions. I find it a little weird that Huizar is being singled out, maybe it’s that rift with the mayor that pushed him under the microscope. We need more resources allocated to the ethics commission. Btw– what has Galperin done lately?

      $5000 is the fine that a former city planner gets for acting as a consultant on a project that was his while on staff at the city??? Are you kidding? He was likely offered ten times that for all the strings he could pull from the inside.

      Some of is might feel vindicated by the formal revelation that planning staff are just as capable of corruption and conflict of interest as our electeds.

  2. WHAT!!?? Corruption in Los Angeles politics? You don’t say!

  3. It is wild that this stuff took place in 2011 and it took FOUR YEARS for these penalties to be assessed. That is way too long.
