Sex pervert Assemblyman Raul Bocanegra, D-Pacoima, announced he is stepping down from his leadership post as majority whip and will not seek re-election next year.
That’s too little, too late. His victims and constituents deserve better. Nothing short of his immediate resignation should satisfy the public, and it’s time that his fellow Democrats show some courage and make clear he does not belong in the Assembly representing the northeast San Fernando Valley.
The new and disturbing allegations reported by the Los Angeles Times reveal a persistent pattern of Bocanegra disregarding the dignity of women and willfully abusing his power to take advantage of multiple women.
Face it, he’s a sex criminal and he needs to go.
