A recall effort against Los Angeles City Councilman Kevin de Leon, who has been embroiled in the Council racist comments recording scandal for most of the month, was launched on Thursday following the LA City Clerk’s office accepting a notice of recall intent from organizers.
De Leon, along with then-City President Nury Martinez, Councilman Gil Cedillo, and Los Angeles County Federation of Labor President Ron Herrera, were found to have made multiple racist and racial comments earlier this month following an audio leak of the four talking during a district realigning meeting last year. In addition to the racist words, the four were also heard plotting to reorganize Council lines to decrease the power of black Councilmembers and others in the city.
In the ensuing weeks, all four made multiple apologies, both Martinez and Herrera resigned, and calls for both de Leon and Cedillo to resign have come from the majority of Angelinos, as well as Mayor Eric Garcetti, Senator Alex Padilla (D-CA), Governor Gavin Newsom, and President Joe Biden. Protests have also been constant against both de Leon and Cedillo, with protestors even appearing outside de Leon’s house non-stop for the past several weeks.
However, de Leon has remained defiant in the growing calls for him to resign. In the past week he has said that he is staying in office as duty for his constituents and has said that a recall would be the only way for him to be removed from office. more here
And recall efforts work out so well against the Nazis in California. What a waste of time and money.
“Thirty caliber clip. 30 magazine clip in 1/2 a second”. Yea, this is that idiot.
DeLeon is a corrupt asshole, but considering what’s left on the LA City counsel, he’s a moderate by comparison. LA has it’s own Alexandra Cortez: Nithya Raman
Believe it or not, this is the asshole who introduced me to the idea of a “ghost gun”.
Now I have many. All thanks to his lying ass with a 3rd grade education.
Delicious, I love it when commie victim groups eat each other…
His bit about “.30 caliber round clip” is second only to the “shoulder thing that goes up” for pure gun control amusement.
Until California does something about Voter Fraud these folks are wasting their time. Take care of voter fraud and California can be turned around.
This is the pos who worked for years to get drivers licenses for illegals. He’s just another anti American piece of garbage. One reason California is now Commiefornia.
