1. The Mayor of Los Angeles @ericgarcetti witnessed his top aide Rick Jacobs assault and sexually harass people for years and not only did he not take action against Jacobs, he would often laugh it off.


2. In July, when one of Mayor @ericgarcetti's bodyguards sued the City of Los Angeles because Rick Jacobs had subjected him to years of sexual harassment and assault, Garcetti did nothing to excise Jacobs from his world.


3. Rick Jacobs's sexual misconduct and Mayor @ericgarcetti's acceptance of it was an open secret. So much so that staff in Mayor Garcetti's office would tell people that they were dreading the day when it would all be revealed.


4. Two sources told me that Mayor @Ericgarcetti witnessed Rick Jacobs grab them without consent and forcibly kissed them. The Mayor's reaction? To laugh it off.

Another source, a former city hall aide, said Jacobs forcibly kissed them at the office.


5. How did people in Mayor @EricGarcetti's world respond to the lawsuit filed by his former bodyguard? They excused away Rick Jacobs's sexual misconduct as just the way gay men behave

They also spread a conspiracy that the @LAPPL organized the suit
