The Democrat-led Senate Foreign Relations Committee is on notice from a non-profit government whistleblower group which called supporting former L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti’s ambassador to India nomination “a bitter pill to swallow” amid allegations his office covered up sexual assault and harassment.
Garcetti, who welcomed the nomination from President Joe Biden in 2021, has been accused of turning a blind eye when a Los Angeles police officer was allegedly sexually harassed by a former top aide to the mayor. The former Los Angeles mayor denied the allegations, saying he did not witness any inappropriate behavior.
Foreign Relations Committee officials are expected to vote on the embattled nomination of Garcetti next week after nearly 600 days since his nod from the Biden administration.
