Richard Alarcon: the Al Capone of the LA City Council. At least they're finally going to get this guy on something. He's been playing fast and loose with almost everything in Los Angeles for so long that he's forgotten what he's doing.
From DZahn at the LA Times -
Councilman Richard Alarcon tells city officials he expects to be
indicted after lengthy investigation focusing on where he lives
been trying for much of the last year to determine whether Alarcon lied
about his residency, which can be prosecuted as a felony. They served
search warrants in January on two homes owned by Alarcon’s wife, Flora
Montes de Oca -- one in Panorama City, which Alarcon claimed as his
residence, and another in Sun Valley. The latter house is outside Alarcon’s district and is in a neighborhood represented by Councilman Paul Krekorian. Alarcon
has repeatedly stated that his residency is at the 1950 tract house on
Nordhoff Street in Panorama City, where he is registered to vote. He
asserted that he has not always stayed in the house because a transient
broke in and barricaded himself there last year. At least six of Alarcon’s employees were subpoenaed to appear before the criminal grand jury last month.
