No One Can Really Tell The Truth Like John Walsh
City Attorney Mike Feuer must reprimand his Deputy City Attorney Dion O’Connell for ensnaring himself in the sexual harassment scandal emanating from the stained-carpeted passageways of Los Angeles City Hall by giving Councilman Mitch Englander’s Chief Legislative Deputy, Mr. Doug Tripp, free legal advice to protect Tripp from any accusations of failure to report incidences of verbal degradation aimed at women under his authority on Councilman Englander’s staff, as well as taking free legal advice from Deputy City Attorney O’Connell regarding how Chief Legislative Deputy Doug Tripp himself can escape being questioned in the multiple investigations (civil and criminal) these sexual harassment accusations have triggered and will trigger!
Deputy City Attorney Dion O’Connell, must please keep in mind that he is merely the civil attorney for the City of Los Angeles … not the criminal attorney for public officials of the City of Los Angeles in hot water; nor the criminal attorney for high- ranking employees of the City of Los Angeles facing indictment!
On the other hand, the Office of City Attorney continues to turn down flat all pleas from female employees (past and present) for legal advice and support…specifically those who found themselves working under allegedly potty-mouthed Councilman Mitch Englander as well as those female employees working under amateur-Don Juan-at-City-expense) Mr. Councilman Jose Huizar, who is similarly-accused of sexual-harassment that may still be taking place there as well as at other City Hall Councilmanic offices that perhaps see more sexual action than all of the City’s Gay Bath Houses combined!
Mr. Doug Tripp is a percipient witness to the alleged sexual harassment now under city investigations! Deputy City Attorney Dion O’ Connell can be observed partying heartily with Mr. Tripp in the eyebrow-raising photo below! (and above)
Note that both of them can also be seen in the photo below rubbing their shoulders against Mr. Beca Doten’s breasts. She is a rookie LAPD cop who was inexplicably chosen by Mayor Eric Garcetti to head LA’s version of Homeland Security!
Is Ms. Doten simply pretending to enjoy Deputy City Attorney Dion O’Connell’s advances? Or is she exhibiting a brave front? Study carefully the expression on her face for clues!
Deputy City Attorney Dion O’Connell should have studiously avoided any contact, social or otherwise, with his personal friend City Official Doug Tripp … like the plague!
Ultimately, Los Angles City Attorney Mike Feuer is responsible for this legal ethics mess.
The Buck Stops in Feuer’s well-tailored lap!
The California State Bar is now left to sort out this outrageous entanglement that’s outlined above!
