Eric Garcetti Responds to FBLA

138658909_0fa326c9d2.jpg
Yesterday we reported that Los Angeles City Council President Eric Garcetti won the “40 Under 40″ award. We questioned the award’s legitimacy wondering if Mr. Garcetti is indeed still under 40. We’ve noted that we’ve never seen his authentic birth certificate. Nor has anyone we know. And we know lots of people.

Anyway, Garcetti’s press secretary Julie Wong, pushing aside important Silver Lake pothole complaints, actually returned our call on this pressing matter. “He’s 38,” she told us. “Proudly, 38.”

Oh yeah? Where’s the proof? “He’ll gladly make it available to you,” she told FBLA.

Hm. Sounds evasive.
