An anonymous Reddit account posted several shocking audio recordings earlier this month. The recordings appear to include Council President Nury Martinez, Councilmembers Kevin de León and Gil Cedillo, and LA Labor Federation President Ron Herrera discussing a wide range of topics of great public interest while being incredibly racist.
The account and the files were later deleted. Requests for comment were not returned by Cedillo, Herrera, Martinez, or de León.
“Fuck that guy, he’s with the Blacks,” Council President Nury Martinez says of Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascón in the recording.
Martinez describes Councilmember Mike Bonin’s adopted Black son as “parece ch****ito” (“looks like a little monkey”).
“This kid needs a beatdown. Let me take him around the corner, I’ll bring him right back.”
