Carmen "Nuch" Trutanich made a promise not use the City Attorney's Office as a political springboard to higher office. It was not only a signed sworn promise, but a theme he mentioned time and time again both before and after he was elected - he was committed to serving a full first term, and seeking a second term. He specifically stated he would NOT run for District Attorney.
The Los Angeles Dragnet recently reported that Trutanich violated that promise as early as 18 months into office when he announced his willingness to run for DA, and then set up a bogus website to make it look like "hundreds of law enforcement officers" are pleading with him to run for DA.
The Political Pantloads Blog has published this YouTube video for Memorial Day, to remind people of Trutanich's broken promises.
Quite how Carmen "The Clown" expects anyone to take him seriously is a mystery.
