LA Mayor Having Relationship With Anchor An Ethics Violation?

June 2, 2009

California (ChattahBox) – LA Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has proven that he has a soft spot for news anchors, after it was learned that he has started seeing the second one since an affair ended his marriage in 2007.

Lu Parker, an anchor with KTLA-TV Channel 5 in Los Angeles, allegedly began seeing Mayor Villaraigosa in March.

While the television station she works for is unconcerned about the relationship, some questions of ethics in reporting have arisen after she delivered a story about the Mayor’s potential bid for Governor, a story that she seemed to have used her personal relationship to uncover.

“Now that we’re aware of the relationship, she will no longer be covering local politics,” Jason Bell, the KTLA-TV news director was quoted in the LA Times.

This is the second news anchor that Villaraigosa has been seeing, after his affair with Telemundo anchor Mirthala Salinas sparked controversy, and ended his marriage of 20 years.
