With two of its members refusing to resign over their involvement in a leaked racist recording, the Los Angeles City Council found itself in limbo Thursday, unable to muster enough members to meet Friday and lacking clarity about what happens next.

Acting City Council President Mitch O’Farrell canceled a meeting that had been scheduled for Friday after it became clear that neither Councilman Gil Cedillo nor Kevin de León would immediately follow the lead of former Council President Nury Martinez.

She resigned Wednesday from her office after a furious backlash over racist and derogatory comments she made in that recorded conversation.

Two other members — Mike Bonin and Marqueece Harris-Dawson — said they saw no point in having the meeting if Cedillo and De León refuse to step aside. Meanwhile, protesters outraged that Cedillo and De León were still in office threatened to shut down another meeting next week if the two don’t step down.
