John Walsh heckles Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villarigosa at MTA meeting, July 26, 2007
A heckler ripped into Mayor Villaraigosa at today’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority meeting, suggesting that he get therapy for his “sex addiction.”
It happened during the public comment period. A man named John Walsh, who attends most MTA meetings and is known as a gadfly, walked up to the podium and castigated the mayor for being an hour late.
Villaraigosa serves as the vice-chairman of the MTA board of directors. Walsh called him “the vice-chair, no pun intended.”
Then he called on the mayor to resign from his position as co-chair of the Hillary Clinton campaign.
The mayor did not respond, and he later left the meeting without talking to reporters.
Soon others besides gadflies will be asking hard questions of the Mayor.
