Over the past few days Emanuel, candidate running for mayor of Los Angeles, and his campaign have received growing media attention. This is due largely in part to the peaceful protest put on by his supporters because of the money-based exclusion of Emanuel from the televised mayoral debate on ABC7.
The debate was sponsored by the League of Conservation Voters.
Today’s front page of LA Weekly has a piece covering Emanuel and the protest as one of the main stories.
Here is a short blurb from the original piece:
“Pleitez was excluded from Saturday’s debate on the grounds that he hadn’t raised $200,000 in total. But he out-raised Kevin James last quarter, and it’s becoming harder to craft rules that would exclude Pleitez while including James.
Given that, it seems likely that Pleitez will get his chance to debate soon. In an interview, he said he had received invitations to participate in about a half dozen forums, including a televised debate.”
