Hertzberg gets Riordan endorsement in race for L.A. mayor

From this:

Former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan endorsed the mayoral campaign of Bob Hertzberg on Thursday, saying he favored the former state Assembly speaker's plan to break up the Los Angeles Unified School District.

Riordan, who now serves as the state secretary of education, appeared on KFI-AM's "The John and Ken Show" and praised Hertzberg's plans for education and traffic, including a platform to allow more residents to work from home...

Riordan's announcement was not entirely unexpected, since he is close to Hertzberg and his wife, Nancy Daly Riordan, already serves as a co-chairwoman of the Hertzberg campaign. Still, the move was a switch from the 2001 election, when Riordan backed then-candidate Antonio Villaraigosa in the runoff against Hahn...

Hahn campaign adviser Kam Kuwata [said] Hahn has been "opposed by Riordan through much of his public life."

"I hope (Riordan) spends two days touring Los Angeles saying Hertzberg's the guy, since that did such a great service to Antonio in 2001," he added...

Of course, what the article doesn't mention is that Bob Hertzberg is a board member of MALDEF, an organization that I consider explicitly anti-American.

More on MALDEF here, here, and here.
