“Pending before the Los Angeles City Ethics Commission is the Matter of John Lee, Respondent, Case No. 2020-019. I will recuse myself from participating in this matter. The reason for my recusal is to avoid any appearance of a conflict of interests arising from my having been a candidate in 2019 in an election where John Lee and I were two of the fifteen candidates.”
– Ethics Commission President Jeffery Daar
The commissioners and staff may not comment on a pending enforcement matter.
The Ethics Commission was created by Los Angeles voters in 1990 to impartially administer and enforce the City’s governmental ethics, campaign financing, and lobbying laws.
