Carmen Trutanich Suspends City Attorney Reelection Campaign

Trutanich's decision follows the death of his mother Saturday in a San Pedro hospital.

Los Angeles City Attorney Carmen Trutanich announced Saturday the suspension of activities for his reelection campaign.

The announcement came the same day Trutanich's mother Esther Trutanich died Saturday in a San Pedro hospital at the age of 91, according to the L.A. Times. She had been receiving treatment for pneumonia.

Trutanich faces three challengers, former lawmaker Mike Feuer and private attorneys Greg Smith and Noel Weiss, in the primary on Tuesday.

How 'bout I come over and you call me fat to my face, bullyboy?

There is some real chemistry here. Crosby and Hope have nothing on you. Keep it up!

Well, we certainly have established who's fat, and who's a schoolyard bully! (And, returning to the actual topic of the original post, that Trutanich has the schoolyard bully vote wrapped up - but we already knew that.)

I think it's pretty clear from the results this morning that Trutanich's pre-election internal polling showed him in a strong second, forcing a runoff, but with no chance of catching Feuer. In other words, a good time to suspend campaigning to save money for May. As for the excuse provided in this article, I think its just one more example of Trutanich's character. In the May election, I think his ignorant campaign against medical marijuana patients might just come back to haunt him - what with three clinic legalization and regulation measures of the ballot.
