Once again, according to the Los Angeles Times, Mayor Villaraigosa is dating another pretty TV news anchor.
Although separated from his wife, the last time he had an affair with a Los Angeles based TV journalist, she wound up losing her job, because of conflict of interest, in her reporting of the Mayor.
There is mounting evidence, with another affair, that Mayor Villaraigosa is much too controversial to run for Governor.
This is a big boost of State Attorney General Jerry Brown, who is likely to capture much of the Latino vote, should Villaraigosa exit the 2010 gubernatorial contest.
Here is an excerpt from the Los Angeles Times story, June 2, 2009.
