Rocky files to raise AG money — again

City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo's final term has five months and change to run, so today comes word that he has filed papers to let him raise money for a second try at the state Attorney General's office. Last time, you'll remember, Delgadillo was seriously humbled in the Democratic primary — 67% to 31% — by Jerry Brown. Delgadillo is not alone in lining up for the 2010 race, Patrick McGreevy observes for the LAT.

Down the (virtual) hall: Controller Laura Chick released an audit critical of City Hall car practices: "Out of the 167 audits I've released, I have to say this is the most stunning example of how this city does business in an un-business like way." LAT

Add McGreevy: Gov. Schwarzenegger appointed David Cunningham III, former head of the L.A. police commission, to the Superior Court bench. Rest of the judges are after the jump.

Over at the county: In today's Daily Journal, Evan George profiles Sylvia Drew Ivie, new chief of staff for Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas and the former head of the To Help Everyone Clinic in the Crenshaw area. Her father was Charles Drew, and she has made reopening of King-Drew Medical Center a major goal.
