Was Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa napping at a Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority board meeting in late October?
According to Hollywood community activist John Walsh, who attended the meeting, the answer is an unqualified YES!
Villaraigosa, an MTA board member, has been known as someone who enjoys hitting the town at night -- here's a TMZ video featuring the mayor and American Idol host Ryan Seacrest -- and he maintains an active traveling schedule with frequent flights out of town and sometimes out of the country.
Could all of that travel and nightlife be catching up to the 56-year-old mayor?
It appears so, which means, at least on one occasion, it's affecting his work.
Politicians are sometimes caught napping at dinner awards ceremonies, but rarely do you see them literally sleeping on the job.
