Politicians continue to react after Los Angeles City Council fallout over leaked audio

Los Angeles City Hall was still in chaos with the massive fallout from last week’s racism scandal.

This comes after a leaked recording from almost a year revealed a rough conversation between Nury Martinez, Kevin de Leon and Gil Cedillo and a powerful union leader, Ron Herrera.

“Whether we are a father or a friend or a community leader, we must make sure that we are impeccable with our words and that we are constantly mindful of what we say and always try to be loving and caring with everything, what we’re saying,” said Rep. Tony Cardenas (D-San Fernando).

“I am very hopeful that my colleagues will heed the call of the public and their colleagues because we just need to begin the healing process in our city,” said Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez.

After last week’s revelation of the comments, both Martinez and Herrera, the head of the LA County Federation of Labor, resigned. Councilmen Gil Cedillo and Kevin De Leon were also heard on the recording, but both have refused to resign. The governor, the mayor and even the president have called on them to quit, along with many of their city council colleagues.

City council meetings are scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday and will be held virtually.
