About Political Life

At Political Life, we are focused on empowering the communities of Eastern and Southern Los Angeles County. Our reporting focuses on critical issues facing the community, but which the mainstream media ignores. Most often, we cover corruption in government, as well as its effects on the people. 

Our reporting has included: 

- The Brown Act violations by El Monte City Council (https://youtu.be/5B1_KWFjVLk
- The abuse of the homeless by Downey's Mayor (https://www.political-life.com/post/downey-mayor-orders-city-manager-to-take-belongings-from-the-homeless
