Remote City Council Meeting Interrupted By Pornographic Videos


    Friday’s first-ever remote meeting for the Los Angeles City Council had to shut down for 20 minutes because of pranksters posting “pornographic videos”. The Los Angeles Daily News has the story: Council President Nury Martinez called a recess about an hour into the meeting, which is centered around a Los Angeles-centric relief package for workers, renters and homeless people during the public health crisis. She said there were “inappropriate videos” being posted. Soon afterward, city officials’ voices could be heard discussing turning peoples’ video capabilities off on the channel. The reporter posted on Twitter that the meeting faced other challenges. “Councilman Joe Buscaino just yelled at his kids to be quiet.” (“Maybe it’s past Joe’s bedtime,” joked an assistant news editor.) The meeting ran on for nearly 11 hours, and by the end just six people remained in Zoom’s meeting room. “Seven people on the 15-member City Council voted to ban all evictions in Los Angeles, with 6 against. But that was not enough to pass the ban. They needed 8 votes.” Read more of this story at Slashdot.
