CA state senator Kevin de León is on hot seat after revelation his daughter benefited from employment at Greenlining Institute after he helped "shepherd" proposal.
"State Sen. Kevin de León's daughter landed a job last year with an organization whose proposal he was shepherding through the Legislature after he called the group on her behalf. De León called the nonprofit Greenlining Institute and asked if his daughter could apply for a position there, according to Bruce Mirken, a spokesman for the Berkeley-based organization, which advocates for minority communities. The senator's daughter, now 21, obtained a summer job as a consultant with the institute in June. The Los Angeles Democrat introduced Greenlining's bill in February 2014 and was steering it through legislative committees when his daughter started work." -- Patrick McGreevy, the Los Angeles Times
