What LA Leaders Think About Huizar’s Future At City Hall
On Friday, Los Angeles City Council President Nury Martinez asked Councilmember José Huizar not to attend any more council meetings, the latest development as federal investigators pursue a sweeping corruption probe involving L.A. city staff, members of the City Council, developers, lobbyists and more.
Huizar has not been charged, but some of his peers have raised concerns about whether he may be implicated, and calls for his resignation are mounting at City Hall.
David Ryu (CD 4) tweeted that Huizar should resign. Paul Krekorian (CD 2) said the people "can no longer have confidence" that Huizar is representing their interests. Bob Blumenfield (CD 3) said his "blood boils" reading about the corruption, and though Huizar has not been indicted, Blumenfield said he should resign, because "where there is smoke there is fire."
Some, including Gil Cedillo, Paul Koretz, and Herb Wesson, have declined to comment.
