Remembering prominent progressive Stanley Sheinbaum Prominent Angeleno Stanley Sheinbaum died Monday at the age of 96. For most of his life, Sheinbaum was a citizen activist in local, national, and international politics. He played major roles in the Israeli peace process, in reshaping the LAPD after Rodney King, and in the Pentagon Papers. His wealth came through marriage – his wife Betty is the daughter of movie mogul Harry Warner. Together they were powerful fundraisers for progressive politicians and causes, including hosting Bernie Sanders at their Brentwood mansion last year.
