DA Probing Alleged Campaign Finance Violation by Villanueva


Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva is being investigated by the District Attorney’s Office to determine if he violated campaign finance laws with a video plea to deputies for donations during his reelection bid, the office confirmed Wednesday.

The investigation, first reported by the Los Angeles Times, focuses on a video that was circulated to members of the department last week. On the video, Villanueva speaks into the camera and says the message is aimed at deputies, whom he asks to consider making donations to his campaign.

On the video, the sheriff said the Association for Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs — the union representing deputies — was not funding for his reelection campaign. ALADS, which pumped money into the sheriff’s original campaign four years ago, endorsed Villanueva this year, but he said the group wasn’t contributing financially.
