Chief Deputy District Attorney Jackie Lacey officially launched her campaign to become LA's next District Attorney with this YouTube video setting out her platform:

There's no rule that we are aware of against becoming a "Friend" on Lacey's FaceBook page. When we last took our FaceBook Friend Poll, Lacey was in 5th place with 154 friends, she now has 206, and an equally all-important FaceBook button on her website.
But back to that "Contribute" button. It's no doubt going to get tested on Thursday when Steve Cooley hosts a luncheon for Lacey at the City Club. Rumors persist that the event is "over subscribed."
