Villaraigosa Mural Draws More Controversy
Last Monday, we wrote about a mural of Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa that drew the ire of someone in East Hollywood, who splattered red paint on the face of a somber-looking Villaraigosa and wrote "THIS IS OUR TOWN" in black spray paint on the sidewalk below the mural.
Villaraigosa mural on Friday, September 25
Over the weekend, the mural stayed that way -- "vendido" gone, but the red paint and "THIS IS OUR TOWN" (which may be a play on the Dodgers' "This Is My Town" advertising campaign this season) still there.
