Here's What All 3 LA DA Candidates Said About Our Landlord Investigation
I wanted to know what the three candidates vying to be Los Angeles District Attorney thought about the findings in our investigation of a massive rental empire that owns property in L.A. County. So I asked them.
Here's what they said:
George Gascón, former district attorney of San Francisco:
"We're talking basically about a slumlord."
Rachel Rossi, a former public defender issued a statement:
"Large corporations, like PAMA Management and their affiliated entities, are consistently sued through the civil court process. Yet they still treat lawsuits as a routine business cost, disregarding the safety and welfare of their tenants. When corporate greed rises to illegality and fraud, the District Attorney must step in."
"The District Attorney's does handle cases in which building and safety codes are violated by landlords. Our jurisdiction is limited to the unincorporated areas."
