So the District Attorney’s office is reviewing allegations of a conflict of interest involving the mayor.
The agency received a complaint in September and have been probing the issue since, said Dave Demerjian, head of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office Public Integrity Division.
The allegations stem from a 2007 trip Manuel Lozano took to China as part of a speakers delegation. The trip was never claimed on Lozano’s statement of economic interests.
He claims the trip was paid for by a bank executive from Rowland Heights.
Local businessman Greg Tuttle – who has had it out for the council for more than a year – filed a complaint with the FPPC in September. He said he did NOT file a complaint with the DA, and the DA won’t tell me who did.
More to come in Thursday’s paper.
