Whoops. The North County Times has implicated our mayor in a scandal!
Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, a national co-chair of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential campaign, banked at least $1,500 in political donations from an indicted Chicago businessman whose past connections to Barack Obama have been used by Clinton to criticize her rival’s judgment and ethics.
Shaping up to be a fun election year… eh, kids?
UPDATE 4:29pm: The Daily News is reporting that Villaraigosa got $10,500 from an indicted Obama contributor. Which is it? How much of it was spent shopping in Sherman Oaks? Spill it, Tony. the
media blogger wants to know.
