Sex scandals rock governments in Southern California -- A Times/Google + Live Hangout

July 17, 2012 |  9:40 am

Sex scandals are roiling politics in two parts of Southern California -- San Fernando and Orange County.

Carlos Bustamante, a Santa Ana city councilman and former Orange County government official, was charged earlier this month with more than 12 felonies in connection with the alleged sexual assault of more than seven women over eight years.

In San Fernando, three council members are involved in two separate scandals that have touched off months of headlines and a recall effort.

At 11 a.m. Tuesday, Times reporters Nicole Santa Cruz and Richard Winton will discuss these cases and the public outrage that has surrounded them during a Times/Google + Live video Hangout.

We invite you to join in on the conversation by posting comments below or onto The Times’ Facebook and Google Plus pages or on Twitter using the #asklatimes hashtag.
