Southeast Los Ángeles’ export.
The Los Angeles Weekly’s new issue has a story on the politics of Cudahy, linking the Mexican Mafia with Cudahy City Manager George Pérez, alleged political boss of Cudahy. It provides a peek into Southeast Los Angeles politics, which can best be described by a recall election in South Gate in 2003 that led to Albert Robles’ conviction and sentencing to ten years in federal prison.
In an unrelated topic, I found an interactive feature on the Mara Salvatrucha on the Los Angeles Times’ site. I had stumbled across it before, but did not see it all.
