Someone sent me a link to this article that appeared in the Los Angeles Times back in 2004. Their comment was “Interesting how a Hispanic woman was treated so differently.” Liz’s “conflict” was related to sex as well EXCEPT she did not commit a crime.
The other item of note is the difference in how one Human Resources chief was treated versus another Human Resources chief, is that the Sanchez committed her act at a time when the county was still reeling from a corruption scandal. Lamberto committed his crime at a time when the county claims to be corruption free and transparent.
I guess we’ve cleaned the county up and declared the county “corruption free” by redefining corruption. That is the only explanation I can think of.
