Protestors Turn Up Heat on de León

Protestors rally at the LA City Clerk's Office and officially submit their notice of intent to recall de León from city council.

Just 3 weeks after the scandalous tape of members of the LA city council disparaging Blacks Californians and openly discussing their plans to redistrict electoral lines in order to take away voting power from the Black community in Los Angeles organizers have now submitted a notice of intent to recall Kevin de León, one of the councilmen caught on the lude recording.

 The notice was sent to the City Clerk’s Office, initiating the first steps in the recall process. Analyst say that organizers only need to collect signatures from 21,006 registered voters in District 14, which would equate to roughly 15% of the total voter population in the district.
