Trujillo draws criticism from Cooley
The LA Weekly reports that LA County District Attorney Steve Cooley had harsh words for candidate Deputy District Attorney Mario Trujillo at the LA County Bar Association judicial honors event in the Tom Bradley room high atop City Hall on Wednesday night.
Trujillo: 'Hi boss, how are you?'
Cooley: 'I was doing just fine until I read that you called me archaic and inefficient.'
It went downhill from there...
Trutanich likely to declare candidacy early in 2012
Also lurking around the rafters of the Tom Bradley room was City Attorney Carmen Trutanich who all but admitted that he would announce his run for DA 'early in 2012.' With 'TRU in 12' likely to be the campaign slogan, we wonder if Trutanich will recycle some of his other campaign catchphrases. 'I am here to do this job' seems to be the most appropriate, as one observer noted, 'He doesn't say which job, does he?'
