Time spent around the water cooler chatting about candidates would be a lot less interesting if people paid more attention to whether or not their microphone was on. Monday night, L.A. City Council candidate Greg Good failed the hot mic text when Good was participating in the Stonewall Democratic Club endorsement process via Zoom. Candidates and those ineligible to vote on the endorsement were moved into a waiting room during the vote. While there, members and observers believed they heard Good say “If they don’t endorse me, fuck them.” After not getting the endorsement, Good still managed an apology or, at least, an explanation. At the end of the endorsement another attendee’s mic went live and responded with a “Fuck you too Greg”.
