Nury Martinez is no longer President of the Los Angeles City Council, but this obviously isn’t going far enough, as many are still asking for this nasty, racist pig to fully resign from the council and leave her job with the city. Via CNN:

Los Angeles City Council member Nury Martinez has resigned as the legislative body’s president after making racist remarks about a fellow council member and his Black child.

“I take responsibility for what I said and there are no excuses for those comments,” Martinez said in a statement. “I’m so sorry.”

Martinez’ resignation as president is effective immediately, according to the statement, though she remains a member of the council.

The remarks were part of leaked audio that was posted anonymously on Reddit and obtained by The Los Angeles Times. According to the newspaper, the audio details a conversation between Martinez, Councilmembers Gil Cedillo and Kevin de León and Los Angeles County Federation of Labor President Ron Herrera.

Much of the conversation focused on maps proposed by the city’s redistricting commission and the councilmembers’ frustration with them, as well as the need to “ensure that heavily Latino districts did not lose economic assets” in the once-in-a-decade process, according to the Times.

The councilmembers then discussed Councilmember Mike Bonin, a White man. In clips of the leaked audio posted by the Times, Martinez is heard recounting a conversation and says “Bonin thinks he’s f**king Black.”

ICYMI, here below was some of the leaked audio, which sadly reveals what we already know: Most politicians are truly the most hateful and evil scum of the earth. The racist hate speech in these clips probably pales in comparison to what’s said behind closed doors at state houses, congress, and the White House.
