    A judge found Thursday that a Los Angeles County sheriff’s investigator followed proper protocols when he obtained a warrant to search the home and office of county Supervisor Sheila Kuehl and others, clearing him of allegations that he’d sought out a friendly judge to sign off on the searches. “The court concludes that the process to obtain the new warrant did not deviate from established processes for law enforcement to obtain a warrant,” Superior Court Judge William Ryan wrote in a document laying out his findings. He said that Sheriff’s Sgt. Max Fernandez, who wrote the statement of probable cause that was presented to Judge Craig Richman ahead of last week’s raids, attempted to get the warrants signed Sept. 8 by another judge who had handled proceedings related to earlier warrants in the case. That judge, Eleanor Hunter, was on vacation. So Fernandez went to the bailiff’s office and was directed to another open court, which happened to be that of Richman, Ryan found. “Detective Fernandez did not select Judge Richman,” Ryan wrote. “At the time, Detective...
    SHEILA Kuehl took the position of Los Angeles County supervisor in November 2014. Los Angeles County deputies announced "an ongoing public corruption investigation," on September 14, 2022, following a raid on Kuehl's home. 2Sheila Kuehl is the LA County supervisor for the 3rd DistrictCredit: Getty Who is Sheila Kuehl? 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...
    Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl referred to those who object to mask mandates as 'snowflake weepies' during a Board of Supervisors meeting with the county's public health director Barbara Ferrer.  During Tuesday's meeting, Ferrer, 81, expressed her relief that a return to indoor mask mandates may not be necessary as new Covid-19 cases were on a steady decline. Despite that development, Kuehl, 81, still took aim at the critics of mask policies. The outgoing supervisor said: 'I'm particularly struck by the blowback from a number, though not a really significant number of sort of, 'snowflake weepies' about how oppressive it is to wear a mask.' Bizarrely, Kuehl went on to draw a comparison between mask mandates and the wearing of every day clothes. Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl wonder aloud during a meeting why people don't get as angry about wearing shirts and shoes as they do about wearing masks She said: 'I don't hear them writing me about shoes, which are actually more oppressive to your feet than wearing a mask on your face but we do...
    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...

    A Los Angeles County supervisor got an earful of complaints Saturday from protesters who are upset about the county’s ban on outdoor dining as coronavirus numbers climb. The group targeted Supervisor Sheila Kuehl outside her Santa Monica home because she was recently caught dining outdoors at a nearby restaurant after voting in favor of the ban – which most bar and restaurant owners and employees in the county oppose, saying it threatens their ability to earn a living. Demonstrators outside Kuehl’s home included Angela Marsden, owner of a bar and restaurant in the city’s Sherman Oaks neighborhood, who was seen in a viral video on Friday, complaining that a Hollywood movie crew had been allowed to set up an outdoor dining area just several feet away from where Marsden’s dining patio was forced to shut down. She explained that the ban, following months of business slowdowns because of the virus, was compounding the pressure on her to stay in business and on her staff to remain employed.

    With coronavirus cases spiking to dangerous new levels in Los Angeles County, some top officials are facing backlash over their push to slow the surge by restricting public activities. On Sunday, protesters marched in front of the home of Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer. Days later, a handful of people gathered outside Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl’s house in Santa Monica. Both demonstrations, in which the majority of people were unmasked, were fairly small, but they reflect a growing political divide and vitriol over restrictions from a segment of the population weary and skeptical of such measures despite the growing health risks. Tuesday’s protest at Kuehl’s home comes on the heels of news that she dined out at a Santa Monica restaurant last Tuesday, hours after she voted to uphold a ban on outdoor dining in the county. Kuehl did not violate any county rules because outdoor dining was still permitted at the time. Kuehl confirmed that she did dine al fresco at Il Forno Trattoria near her house in Santa Monica on the day she...

    The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors passed a measure Tuesday to let voters decide whether to boost spending on social services, in an initiative dubbed “Re-Imagine L.A. County” that has drawn strong opposition from labor unions and Sheriff Alex Villaneuva, who called it a veiled attempt to reduce funding for law enforcement. The measure, slated for the November election, would amend the county’s charter, requiring that 10% of locally generated, unrestricted county money — about $400 million — be spent on housing, mental health, jail diversion, employment opportunities and social services. The county would be prohibited from using the money on prisons, jails or law enforcement agencies. “For far too long our locally generated tax dollars have been given to reinforce the legal injustice system that has failed to make our communities safer, torn apart our families and caused generational trauma,” said Eunisses Hernandez, a Re-Imagine L.A. County coalition co-chair. To many in the coalition of almost 100 organizations — among them, Black Lives Matter Los Angeles and the United Way of Greater L.A. — the proposal...
