Add this to the ever growing list of the lies of Carmen Trutanich.
City Attorney candidate Greg Smith told KABC 790AM listeners that when he first met Trutanich and decided to support his 2009 campaign to be City Attorney, Smith, who served in the Navy during the Vietnam war, asked Trutanich if he had also been in the military. Trutanich told Smith that he had been in the Coast Guard. Smith later discovered that to be a flat out lie.
Trutanich's failed campaign to become District Attorney floundered because of the many falsehoods that have come to define the former ambulance chaser slip and fall lawyer, turned career politician. Perhaps the straw that broke voters backs was the lie about being surrounded and shot at by gangmembers.
As election day approaches, what are the chances that yet another of Trutanich's lies will lead to his downfall?
