SAN PEDRO, CA—After spending nearly a million dollars of his own money on false, negative ads against Janice Hahn, Steve Napolitano filed paperwork with the County allowing him to self-fund his campaign for the General Election. This will allow Napolitano to skirt voter enacted campaign finance regulations in order to use his personal wealth to finance his campaign.
Janice Hahn’s Chief Campaign Strategist, John Shallman, released the following statement in regards to Napolitano’s decision:
“LA County government is not for sale—even for 'Stever the deceiver’ Napolitano. After being forced by a judge to tell the truth about his own job title, Napolitano shamelessly continued his deceptive campaign by personally financing nasty negative ads against Janice Hahn. 4th District voters can’t be bought and his Trump-style campaign of lies will catch up to him on November 8th.”
Despite his self-funding, Hahn came in first in the Primary. Janice Hahn’s widespread appeal and community support continue to show that she is the choice of the people. She commands overwhelming public support with over 100 small business endorsements, 102 endorsements from our nation’s veterans, 350 community and grassroots endorsements, and every single public safety endorsement in the District. On top of that, Janice Hahn is endorsed by the Los Angeles County Democratic Party, Senator Dianne Feinstein, and the Los Angeles County Labor Federation.
