It’s well established LA County Sheriff Jim McDonnell and District Attorney Jackie Lacey are thick as thieves, politically. They campaign for each other, raise money for each other, and appear with each other frequently at public events. This despite very real concerns that, to the extent each agency is at times responsible for investigating the other, this sort of cronyism may be inappropriate.
Well, anyhow, LASD watchdog site Surruo.com reported today their concern that McDonnell may have promoted his first chief of staff as a favor to Lacey.
Nice pin, Jackie.
