AM Briefing from for August 29, 2013

Former San Diego City Councilman, Former mayoral Candidate, and current congressional candidate Carl Demaio responds to allegation that he was caught masturbating in a city hall men’s room. California State Senator Ben Hueso made the allegations that were published in a Voice of Orange County story. Hueso was a San Diego City Councilman at the time he’s claiming to have witnessed the incident in 2009.

DeMaio released a statement saying “On Friday, Voice of OC published a fatally-flawed story smearing Carl DeMaio using a completely unsubstantiated accusation.” DeMaio also says that his lawyer is demanding a retraction from the Voice of O.C.

In response Voice of OC Editor-in-Chief says “We stand by our story.”

Links to these stories should be popping up in the video now and will also be in the text of this story.
