Rocky Delgadillo in bed with LA's most slimy slumlords. Demand that he return the corrupt cash!

"I think Rocky will bring a fresh look to the attorney general's office, and that's what we need."
---Notorious L.A. Slumlord Stanley Treitel, who contributed heavily to Rockard Delgadillo's campaigns after the City Attorney cut him a deal in court.
Los Angeles City Attorney Rockard Delgadillo has come under intense scrutiny by the LA Times and progressive groups over the revelation that he allowed local slumlords to evade heavy financial penalties in exchange for nearly ,000 in campaign contributions.
From the LA Times:
"Los Angeles City Atty. Rocky Delgadillo accepted thousands of dollars in political contributions from two landlords accused of operating apartments with slum conditions after he settled a lawsuit against them for a third of the amount the city initially sought.
Lance Robbins, called "one of Los Angeles' most notorious landlords" in the lawsuit, and Stanley Treitel have an extensive history of involvement with properties cited for violations. Inspections of their buildings have found blocked emergency exits, cockroach infestations and faulty wiring on the premises, according to city records."
Read the whole story here:
That's right, the "New Face of the Democratic Party" turns out to be a hustling vendido who sells out the poor to make himself richer and more powerful. As if his racist anti-gang posturing isn't bad enough, the guy is being paid to look the other way as slumlords profit by renting hellholes to working people.
According to Delgadillo's campaign website:
"The next Attorney General of California can help lead the fight for people and families across this state who need a champion as they struggle to make a living, pay for health care and secure their retirement."
Sounds like he's not the man for the job.
Unbelievably, Rocky is refusing to return the filthy money. Join the campaign to make him give back the cash and DO HIS JOB. The City Attorney should PROSECUTE slumlords, not cultivate them as political contributors.
Let Rocky know that you don't appreciate the old school politics of corruption. Write him at:
