Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa says he didn’t use a penny of taxpayer money to finance his romance with a TV newscaster, but authorities have said nothing about the whereabouts of his police bodyguards during the time he spent with his girlfriend.
Since the mayor confirmed his relationship with Telemundo’s Mirthala Salinas on July 3, his office acknowledged he traveled to Arizona in January to attend her mother’s funeral and news reports have placed him at various times at Salinas’ home in the San Fernando Valley. Those accounts have not been disputed by the mayor’s office.
