Los Angeles Democratic mayoral candidate Karen Bass was on President Biden’s shortlist for 2020.
Karen Bass is a six-term congressman from California’s 37th congressional district, which includes the Venice/Fairfax district of Los Angeles. According to her campaign website, Bass has a long and outstanding background. Karen Bass reportedly worked as a medical assistant and clinical teacher at the University of Southern California’s Keck School of Medicine before entering politics. Bass was elected to the 47th Assembly District in California in 2004.
In 2008, she was elected as the 67th speaker of the California State Assembly, becoming the first African American woman to serve as speaker of a state legislative body. According to Variety, despite a significant lead in the polls, Bass has encountered a number of stumbling blocks in her mayoral campaign.
Karen Bass and the USC Bribery Charges
Rick Caruso, the wealthy mall developer who is lagging behind Bass in the polls, has the congressman involved in the current federal corruption investigation at USC, where former Dean Marilyn Flynn is suspected of receiving bribes in exchange for college scholarships. According to The Los Angeles Times, Karen Bass was awarded a $95,000 scholarship when she attended the institution, and Caruso is apparently trying to link the two agencies together. Caruso said at a press conference on Thursday, September 8:
“We cannot afford to let the next mayor live under the shadow of corruption.”
Communities United for Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass have made the following statement in support of their candidate, Variety said. Morgan Miller, the committee’s chairman, stated:
“Caruso is trying to mislead and distract people from his poor leadership by targeting a nurse and a social worker.”
Meanwhile, Caruso is embroiled in another USC controversy in which hundreds of women accuse former USC physician George Tyndall of sexual assault. The lawsuit was resolved for more than $800 million. Caruso is accused of covering up the claims while serving as chair of the university’s board of trustees at the time of the incident. It should be emphasized that, according to Variety, the US Attorney’s Office has contested Bass’ participation in the USC’s bribery claims.
