Below is an excerpt from the original post on LA Weekly:
"A few minutes into Saturday night's L.A. mayoral debate, a group of demonstrators stood up and demanded that outsider candidate Emanuel Pleitez be allowed to participate.
"Let Pleitez debate!" they chanted, as the KABC feed went to black.
Though they were escorted out, Pleitez had a powerful ally up on stage. Controller Wendy Greuel had urged the debate organizers to include him."
