Mixer: A Mayoral Endorsement Flap

The LA City Ethics Commission says it cannot confirm or deny whether there will be an investigation of Mayor Eric Garcetti’s office, after an official endorsement went out yesterday of Democratic president candidate Hillary Clinton.

That endorsement came from City Hall. And journalists and watchdogs soon pounced, claiming that the Mayor violated city ethics laws by using city infrastructure for the nod.

The mayor’s office sent out a statement shortly after the endorsement, saying it had been sent in error.

Peter Jamison told the story in the LA Times, and Dakota Smith wrote about it in the LA Daily News.

They both joined KCRW’s Steve Chiotakis on The Friday Mixer. Listen below:
