As Los Angelenos hit the roads on Friday afternoon's rush hour, John and Ken followed up on their Monday interview with District Attorney candidate Alan Jackson during which Jackson explained the steps he was taking to prevent Trutanich from trying to mislead voters with false ballot titles in the June 5, 2012 primary election for District Attorney. Trutanich wants to call himself either the "Los Angeles Chief Prosecutor" or the "Chief Criminal Prosecutor," titles that Jackson says are misleading and false.
Jackson, an 'actual prosecutor,' according to John and Ken, has taken Trutanich to court to stop another lie from the former
"Do you want a guy being your District Attorney who is that deceptive?" the talk show duo rhetorically asked listeners, adding that "Chief Prosecutor? You have to say that's the District Attorney" not Trutanich who as City Attorney "largely handles civil cases," they said.
"If you're running for DA, what's the most important quality that you have? Credibility? Honesty? Integrity? And the first thing you do is file a phony baloney title meant to deceive the public? I think that disqualifies you right off the bat!" they concluded.
John and Ken may be right. Trutanich has been ordered to appear in court on April 11 to try to defend his claims. It is one thing trying to fool uninformed voters, but altogether another thing trying to fool a Superior Court Judge.
