El Monte’s scandal discussion will have to wait

Looks like the discussion on the report looking into allegations that Mayor Ernie Gutierrez was drunk at a city event didn’t make it onto El Monte’s agenda for Tuesday. City Manager Jim Mussenden said Thursday that the report wasn’t ready yet, and seemed doubtful that it would make it on to the agenda next week. But then again, it may never make it on to the agenda if he reviews the report and decides the findings are benign.

Some commenters have suggested a “cover-up.” We’ll just have to wait and see.
