James Hahn

James Hahn is the Mayor of Los Angeles, California. He is the son of the late Los Angeles County Supervisor Kenneth Hahn. His father was known as an ardent supporter of civil rights, yet Hahn, after serving twelve years as city attorney and disgracing the office with regards to the Rodney King case, ran what many saw as a blatantly racist and xenophobic campaign against State Assemblyman Antonio Villaraigosa for the mayor's race in 2001.
