LASD Watchdog Suggests Pay-For-Play in McDonnell Promotion of Lacey Friend’s Husband

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.

Recent LASD Promotions and Transfers

Hello friends in the media and community!

Since the Sheriff’s Department won’t tell you who was recently promoted to a higher rank or officially transferred at the Department, we will.

This should be a huge help to you in understanding not only which well-deserving individuals are being moved up or, more likely, simply moved around, but also in identifying how many more sycophants from the Tanakamobile are being rewarded for their change in absolute loyalty from the last cancerous regime to the current one.

For those playing along at home, feel free to compare to the department’s last publicly-released organizational chart, which was last updated nearly a year ago.
