Garcetti ‘likely knew or should have known’ about aide’s alleged sex misconduct, report finds
L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti was 'likely' aware of alleged sexual misconduct by aide Rick Jacobs, according to an investigation by Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa).
Guess the summer trip to India with Becky is off the table now.
A prominent Republican senator’s investigation into allegations surrounding Mayor Eric Garcetti and his former top aide found it “extremely unlikely” that Garcetti was unaware of the aide’s alleged inappropriate behavior.
The 23-page report released Tuesday by Sen. Charles E. Grassley of Iowa concluded that Garcetti “likely knew or should have known that Rick Jacobs was sexually harassing multiple individuals and making racist comments towards others.”
Grassley, the top Republican on the Judiciary Committee, ordered the report earlier this year after whistleblowers approached his office with accusations about Garcetti and Jacobs, a high-level aide who helped propel the mayor’s political career. Garcetti was nominated in July by President Biden to become ambassador to India.

Pretty rich for a Republican investigation to somehow think not knowing enough about an investigation into an underling's accusations of sexual misconduct is disqualifying, but whatever.
Never thought I would say good job Senator Grassley and mean it but wow
I am not a big fan of Garcetti, but isn't this what the HR department is for? Were no complaints made to the City of LA HR Dept the whole entire time? Is there any documentation of any complaints? Instead it looks like it is only based on recent testimony when specifically asked about it. How did not a single person make a complaint before this?
For example, my husband works for LA County and has had a couple of complaints against him. They were all eventually dismissed after the investigation from HR. Therefore if this issue was a thing, there would be a paper trail for it.
Just confirm him already and let India have him.
