How to confuse people on who the Mayor is

While cruising the City of Los Angeles website, we learned something new: James K Hahn is still mayor! Oh wait, the Information Technology Administration, who is in charge of the website, forgot to take this down.

And this is not the first time this exact incident has happened. Cultural Affairs had to 4 month learning curve to who the mayor was last year until we called the Mayor's office and heard a gasp over the phone when they saw the website.

Ohhh, that silent but sneaky Hahn. Where will you turn up next?
