The rise and (fast) fall of LA City Council candidate Joe Bray-Ali

News recently surfaced that Joe Bray-Ali made offensive comments about black people, overweight people, and trans people getting gender reassignment surgery. Then on Friday, he wrote a Facebook post airing all his dirty laundry. Several groups have rescinded their endorsements of Bray-Ali. He says this scandal distracts from the main issues he has with incumbent Gil Cedillo.
