Paul Krekorian made much ado about the source of his campaign contributions. In an e-mail press release he announced that more than 70% of his contributions came from the “greater San Fernando Valley.” He failed to mention the geographic context of Council District 2 in his claim: only 18.2% of his contributors reside in CD2.
His spin is as deceitful as Essel’s was when she claimed her donations were indicative of community support despite the westside and downtown origins of the cash.
Mr. Krekorian’s money is coming mainly from Burbank and Glendale.
Both Krekorian and Essel want to buy the CD2 seat with outside money.
