Villaraigosa Beat Out OJ for Worst Angeleno of All Time

l100033221.jpg
Steve Lopez had a poll last week. He wanted to know who the worst Angeleno was and now he doesn’t like the answer:

OK, so here we are in Greater L.A., with its long, dark history of land and water grabs, legendary air pollution, assassins, serial killers and gang kingpins, and according to last week’s Talk Back to Lopez poll, the worst Angeleno of all time is:

L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa?

Does anyone out there know any history?

In fairness, he’s an impotent incumbent who’s only accomplishment is getting Mirthala Salinas transferred to Riverside. OJ is in jail, which makes him not an incumbent. The number two on the list was Rep. Henry Waxman, so that should tell you something. People who vote in online polls hate the home team.
