So, if you're Hispanic, you should be given a pass for lying? I thought as citizens, and as elected officials, we're to uphold the laws of the country and the Constitution. I'm glad to see he pleaded guilty. No one should be above the law, whether the perjury was tiny or huge.

It's sad, trying to do the public good can ruin your life. Only a fool would get into politics. If you make one enemy, you become a target and everything you do is dissected. That's why nothing gets done in politics, you survive by giving into those who hold guns to your head, like unions and other special interests. It's kill or be killed.

Solano has no job, he claims to a consultant, except for his stipend as a Board member yet he has a brand new Camary and has a company credit card that he routinly uses for "business expenses." Better be clean my man!!! Better be clean or resign soon.

Oh shut it, he was corrupted. He probably spent the funds buying stuff for his house and going on lavish vacation while you're here moping about how he got targeted.

Looking at his photo, he looks like someone you would not trust. La Puente been fooled again.

Its a shame that this man a latino got caught up in this situation . i guess he's guilty , because hes admitting to it by pleading guilty . so be it , may he pay the price . but to address your last statement that by , LOOKING AT HIS PHOTO , HE LOOKS LIKE SOMEONE YOU WOULD NOT TRUST . man if thats not a judgemental statement i don't know hwat is . it kind of leans toward racism to me ..........

"He also said Lujan, who is Latino, was singled out because of his race."

Now its time clean house & go after the rest of the crooks on the LP city council starting with Solis and then down the line. None of them have any idea what they're doing. Proof is in the pudding at the last council meeting when the council overturned itself on the medical marijuana issue because they got scared of a bunch of angry anti-mj people posed a threat to their cushy council seats. That lame decision is a lawsuit waiting to happen.

The lunatics are running the asylum.
