Trutanich campaign video claims "totally fraudulent"

The disgraced campaign of Carmen Trutanich was devastated during the height of LA's Monday morning commute when KABC 790AM's host Doug McIntyre called City Attorney Carmen 'Nuch' Trutanich's attempt to mislead voters over the amount of support for his campaign "totally fraudulent," and reminded listeners that Trutanich had previously "lied to my face, on this show!"

McIntyre lambasted Trutanich throughout the 7 o'clock hour, but the climax to McIntyre's criticism of Trutanich's latest deception, the YouTubeGate scandal, came just before the 8 o'clock newsbreak. The complete podcast of Trutanich's hour of shame can be heard on the KABC 790AM website, but we've provided you with edited highlights here:

McIntyre recounted how Trutanich's campaign launched in stall mode when he claimed to have police endorsements, "only he didn't" the popular talk show host said. Then McIntyre described how Trutanich had paid a couple of internet marketing companies to artificially boost the number of YouTube views of his thirteen minute long campaign video by 650,000, something McIntyre said was "totally fraudulent," and false evidence of "fantastic grass roots support."

"When you want to be the chief law enforcement officer for the second largest county in the country, and you want the awesome power of budget and prosecutors that comes with being the DA, then you ought to be straight with the people, and you can't lie your way to this office." McIntyre said, adding that it was "Utterly outrageous, and just another example of the out of control campaign of Carmen 'Nuch' Trutanich."

While Trutanich runs and hides from PORAC's Public Safety Forum, ducks and dodges questions and calls from reporters, he cannot run and hide from the media who are, seemingly, as disgusted at Trutanich's deceptive tactics as voters will be on election day. No amount of money can buy Trutanich out of the hole he has dug for himself, and those who endorse him are likely to become increasingly concerned that he will tarnish their reputations as he appears to care little for his own.
