LA Council Seeks Clarification on What Constitutes Vacant Seat Amid Scandal


The Los Angeles City Council voted 10-0 Wednesday to seek clarification on what signifies a council member having vacated their office, as Councilmen Kevin de León and Gil Cedillo continue to resist calls to resign for their role in the City Hall racism scandal.

Neither de León nor Cedillo have attended a council meeting since Oct. 11, days after the leaked recording of the 2021 conversation that included racist comments and attempts to manipulate redistricting was leaked. The council has also voted unanimously to censure both councilmen, who have been stripped of most of their committee assignments.

Under the City Charter, a seat would be considered vacant if a council member is absent from the city “without consent of the Council for more than 60 consecutive days” or has “ceased to discharge the duties of the office for 90 consecutive days.”
