Carmen Trutanich and the Race for District Attorney

Hosted by

When he ran for LA City Attorney, Carmen Trutanich promised he'd serve two terms.  He said, if he ran for District Attorney, he'd take out a full-page ad in the LA Times saying, "I'm a Liar."  Well, there's been no such ad, but Trutanich is running for DA, even though he hasn't finished his first term as City Attorney.  Name-recognition, his campaign war-chest and list of endorsements make him the front-runner. But the current DA, Steve Cooley, is supporting somebody else. Also, the MTA makes a final decision: the Purple Line subway will run under Beverly Hills High School. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, masters of persuasion and the presidential campaign.
