What would he do as District Attorney?


Via some clown at some blog.


We may, mercifully, never find out. Rick Orlov reports the most damaging blow to the aspirations of Carmen Trutanich yet.
"It was becoming clear, across the board, that (Cooley) did not believe Trutanich was up to the job," said a Cooley political adviser.
Indeed, Cooley's endorsement of Jackie Lacey was confirmation enough that the DA wants to wash his hands of Trutanich, but this goes the extra mile.

One visualizes "Cooley says Trutanich is...not up to the job" headlines screaming across the tube, a lead-in to the "Time and time again, Trutanich trampled on the First Amendment" and "Trutanich threatened to lock up a Mayoral candidate...whom he swore to defend and serve" and "Trutanich promised he would not seek higher office if elected" headlines certainly to follow.

It may get a little cumbersome to say "Trutanich sought the same amount of bail on a billboard violator as Cooley asked on Giovanni Ramirez--what would he do as a District Attorney?" sure. But "Trutanich's office even threatened a meek blogger for repeating a comment posted by the LA Times--and never apologized" fits on the screen.
