Up for reelection in a close race, L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva appears to be getting desperate.
How else to explain what looks more like a clownish and vindictive political stunt than a corruption probe?
On Wednesday morning, deputies knocked on the door of one of Villanueva’s chief critics, County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl. They served a search warrant, as reported by The Times’ Alene Tchekmedyian.
Kuehl, in a photo by The Times’ Genaro Molina, is shown in bare feet, being escorted out of her home by a deputy with a hand on Kuehl’s arm. The deputy is trailed by another deputy, and both are wearing bulletproof vests.
