Once again, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is in the news for romancing a TV news anchor.
Unlike Mirthala Salinas, who was suspended by Telemundo’s KVEA-TV and never came back to work, Lu Parker, a former Miss USA, remains on the air at Tribune’s KTLA-TV. She has, however, been removed from covering any local political stories now that her relationship with the mayor is known.
Villaraigosa’s involvement with Parker was confirmed after NBC’s KNBC-TV obtained video of the couple shopping together.
Mayor Villaraigosa is currently in the process of divorcing his wife. He’s also said to be considering a run for Governor of California.
