Richard Alarcon says accusations of him not living in his council district -- choosing to live in a nicer home elsewhere -- says it's not true. He's innocent, says the L.A. City Councilmember who is paid $178,789 each year and who sponsored a "foreclosure registry" ordinance that fines banks up to $1000 a day for letting foreclosed properties become blighted. So why does Alarcon's home on the 14400 block of Nordhoff Street, the one in his district that he says he lives in, look like this? A spokesperson wouldn't talk about it to the Daily News, which visited his home and interviewed neighbors, but did reiterate that it is his permanent residence for him and his family.
