Probe targets Ramani funds

Complaint alleges 33 violations in campaign finance reports.

June 24, 2010|By Christopher Cadelago, christopher.cadelago@latimes.com

Ramani, a former La Cañada city commisser and one-time president of the Burbank Chamber of Commerce, conceded the special June 8 election for the 43rd Assembly District to Democrat Mike Gatto, but has since declined to say whether he planned to campaign for November's general election.

His concession statement thanked supporters for helping to break the "chain of uncontested local races" in the district, which includes nearly all of Glendale.

"I think he needs another couple of days and we'll have an announcement," Thomas said Monday.

The commission this month said it was also investigating Democrat Chahe Keuroghelian, a former candidate for the same seat, for allegedly failing to file proper campaign disclosure reports.

The complaint says Keuroghelian failed to meet the 24-hour deadline for reporting money raised through a telethon on AMGA Channel 280, and that he supplemented his campaign through independent expenditures financed by Gatto operatives.

Keuroghelian and Gatto have repeatedly denied any collusion.
