LA City Council Candidate Bray-Ali Faces Heat Over Derogatory Comments

City Controller Ron Galperin held a news conference with some LBGT leaders at the Placita Olvera Kiosk several blocks from City Hall where he called on the challenger to drop out. “An apology does not erase the actions,” Galperin said.

Galperin was joined by Richard Zaldivar, president and CEO of The Wall Las Memorias Project, Richard Corral, board member of Honor Pac, and Justine Gonzalez of the city’s Transgender Advisory Council. Equality California, a statewide LGBT civil rights group, and the Courage Campaign, a progressive organization, also denounced Bray-Ali and called for him to withdraw.
