A Familiar Name Runs for Mayor of Los Angeles

You may or may not remember Emanuel Pleitez, but he's now running for Mayor of Los Angeles.

One of the earlier commenters on the linked story notes he's one of the guys who ran for the seat currently occupied by Congresswoman Judy Chu. At the time, many supporters of Gil Cedillo claimed he was in there to split the Latino vote and help Chu win.

This time, the commenter claims Pleitez is in there to siphon Latino votes away from Eric Garcetti.
