Proposition R May Have Won, But the Fight's Not Over

Hosted by  • 

The campaign for Measure R on this week's Los Angeles City ballot, which said it would limit the influence of lobbyists at City Hall and "set term limits" on the City Council, passed with 59% of the vote. But contrary to the impression given by campaign mailers, it will allow council members to serve three terms instead of just two, meaning they can serve longer. The national group US Term Limits has dropped a lawsuit, saying it respects the will of the voters, but it still complains that the voters were "lied to" and "tricked."
