Times: Rocky should resign

DelgadilloThe Times editorial page calls Rocky Delgadillo "unfit" to be City Attorney and urges he do the right thing and resign. Under the headline "The honorable thing," the paper says:

We take no delight in this position. It is never a happy sight to watch a public leader contort in the media glare the way Delgadillo has in recent weeks. But the evidence of misconduct has mounted too steadily and the roots of Delgadillo's troubles go back too far to sanction his continued role in Los Angeles government....

Los Angeles' city attorney has displayed two significant character defects, which have collided to bring him into disrepute: his overweening ambition and his inattention to the details and ethics of his office.
