Alarcon says he's innocent. Again.

City councilmember Richard Alarcon, who was indicted by Steve Cooley on 20+ perjury and voter fraud charges back when Cooley thought he would be the next Attorney General, today demanded that the charges be dropped. 

Alarcon has a new story this time - his home in his district was being renovated, which is why he wasn't living there.  This is a change from his previous story: that someone was breaking into his home and he didn't feel safe staying there.

There's a word for this behavior. Pathological? Yes. That's the word.

Let's see if Cooley still has the will and the stomach to keep doing his job. Odds - 50/50.
