Recent burglary of U.S. Rep. Karen Bass’s home gives a new phase in the Los Angeles mayor’s race.
Last Saturday, Bass’s campaign released a statement that her two firearms were stolen.
According to Bass, she came back to home, in Baldwin Vista, Friday night, and found out the signs of break-in, immediately reported to police. She said the thief stole firearms that had been “safely and securely stored”, while cash, electronics, and other valuables were left behind.
Bass said in the statement, “It’s unnerving and, unfortunately, it’s something that far too many Angelenos have faced,” addressing the city’s public safety issues.
However, Karen Bass came under fire after possessing two firearms at home shows her double standard as a politician, while she is a hardcore leftist, consistently in favor of gun control measures.
Online political media ‘American Thinker’ criticized her doble standard living as a politician, addressing 8-gun control initiatives that Bass supports and emphasizing her controversy of being a gun owner, contrasted to her political beliefs.
Less than two months until election day, this, in addition to newly raised USC scandals, will likely give Rick Caruso, Bass’s opposing Los Angeles mayor candidate, a chance to snap at bass’s heels.
According to the recent poll on released on August, Bass secured a double-digit lead against Caruso. However, on September 7th, LA Times reported that federal prosecutors considered circumstances Bass was awarded $95,000 scholarship while earning her master’s degree at USC, in compensation for assistance in passing favorable legislation for USC.
Now every attention goes to November’s election, whether Bass will keep its lead, or Caruso will flip it. For both Bass and Caruso, as well as its supporters, the race isn’t over.
