Trutanich files papers to raise money for DA

The desire to start raising money is goading local candidates to form committees and file with the county (or city, in the case of the 2013 race for mayo.) The latest is Los Angeles City Attorney Carmen Trutanich, who filed so he can accept checks to finance a run for District Attorney, if DA Steve Cooley decides not to seek reelection in 2012. Trutanich's procedural move was accompanied by the traditional "everyone's asking him to run" nonsense. When he was elected two years ago, Trutanich pledged not to run. LAT, LA Weekly
