The City of Los Angeles provides a GMC Yukon for City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo’s official business. But the LA Times has reported that the Yukon was backed into a parking structure at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on the same day Delgadillo’s wife, Michelle, was there for an appointment. It was later repaired at city expense. After stonewalling reporters for several days since that report, Delgadillo talked about the incident today at a news conference.
Democratic State Senator Gloria Romero is pushing a new bill titled, “Unlawful Entry: Tribal Land.” Some opponents claim that if it’s enacted, legitimate Native Americans could be kicked off of reservations.
