Although Sheila Kuehl has spent decades in politics, she started her career as an actress, starring in shows like the Stu Erwin Show and the 1959 sitcom The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis. She was 18 years old when she scored the role of Zelda in The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis and she worked to obtain her English degree from UCLA in between filming. The show was canceled after four seasons and when the spin-off pilot of Zelda didn't take off, Kuehl believed there would be other roles on the way. However, Hollywood didn't come calling again. In an interview with the LA Times in 1995, Kuehl claimed a top CBS executive had canceled the show because she was "a little too butch." READ MORE ON POLITICSbillbuster What to know...
    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. You’d think Kuehl, 81, was some kind of desperado. California L.A. County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl’s home searched by sheriff’s investigators L.A. County sheriff’s investigators arrived at County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl’s home early Wednesday with a search warrant. The search was related to a sheriff’s probe of a nonprofit called Peace Over Violence, which is run by Patti Giggans, a friend of Kuehl’s. Giggans is a member of the Sheriff Civilian Oversight...
    Los Angeles County sheriff’s investigators descended on the house of county County Supervisor Shelia Kuehl on Wednesday morning to conduct a search. “Sheriff’s Department. We have a warrant. We demand entry,” a deputy shouted from outside the front door of the supervisor’s Santa Monica property a few minutes after 7 a.m. Kuehl appeared minutes later and was handed some paperwork. She said she was alone in the house, and several deputies went inside. Kuehl was escorted away from the house. Inside, sheriff’s investigators could be seen opening and closing doors. One deputy appeared to be taking photos or videos. The reason for the search was not immediately clear. But the Sheriff’s Department has been investigating Peace Over Violence, a nonprofit that is run by a member of the Sheriff Civilian Oversight Commission. The commission member is a close associate of Kuehl’s, and both have clashed fiercely with Sheriff Alex Villanueva and called for his resignation. The investigation stems from allegations by a county employee that the nonprofit was improperly awarded a series of contracts pushed by Kuehl’s office. Members of...
    In the race to replace Sheila Kuehl on the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, early returns Tuesday night showed three candidates in the lead. State Sen. Bob Hertzberg (D-Van Nuys), West Hollywood City Councilmember Lindsey Horvath and state Sen. Henry Stern (D-Malibu) were significantly ahead of the rest of the field for the 3rd District seat, which covers much of the San Fernando Valley and the Westside. Unless a candidate gets more than 50% of the vote, the top two finishers will move to a November runoff. In the 1st District, which includes much of East Los Angeles and the San Gabriel Valley, incumbent Hilda Solis had a large lead over four challengers, the early returns showed. The three other 3rd District candidates are small-business owner Jeffi Girgenti, canine recreational provider Craig Brill and business owner and actress Roxanne Beckford Hoge. The county supervisors are sometimes referred to as the “five little kings” because of their unglamorous but powerful jobs controlling an annual budget of nearly $39 billion in a county of more than 10...
    After Sheila Kuehl announced she was not seeking reelection to the L.A. County Board of Supervisors, the political maneuvering began. The jockeying for the open seat intensified after district lines were redrawn in December in a once-in-a-decade process, bringing some conservative-leaning parts of the San Fernando Valley into Kuehl’s 3rd District. That set the stage for Bob Hertzberg (D-Van Nuys) and Henry Stern (D-Malibu), state senators who represent parts of the Valley, to mount campaigns. They are running against West Hollywood City Council Member Lindsey Horvath, who is backed by Kuehl, and three other candidates in a race where homelessness and crime have emerged as defining issues before the June 7 primary. The supervisors are sometimes referred to as the “five little kings” because of their unglamorous but powerful jobs controlling an annual budget of nearly $39 billion in a county of more than 10 million people. In the redistricting, which was led for the first time by a citizens commission instead of the supervisors themselves, the 3rd District lost some world-renowned cultural venues, including the Hollywood Bowl and the...
