Los Angeles City Council President Eric Garcetti was one of the recipients of New Leaders Council 2009 “40 Under 40″ Award.

About the “40 Under 40″ Awards

The 40 Under 40 Awards was created by New Leaders Council (www.newleaderscouncil.org) to help recognize the hard work of a diverse group of young leaders including elected officials, inspiring community organizers, as well as non-profit and policy leaders who exemplify the spirit of progressive political entrepreneurship.

Garcetti is still under 40 years old? Really? We’ve never seen a birth certificate. Isn’t that curious? All this time and Garcetti has never produced a real birth certificate proving his age? We’re just saying. We’ve never seen it. Not an authentic one anyway. Ahem.

Also winning this year was blogger Nate Silver. Swoon.
