September 19, 2022
Documents appear to support the contention that LA Mayor Eric Garcetti, LA County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl and others, gave an open checkbook to Patti Giggans to create a "Sexual Harassment helpline" for the MTA. The helpline receives perhaps one phone call per week.
This tweet from investigative reported Cece Woods: "Memo from Patti Giggans expressing gratitude to Sheila Kuehl for the open budget. #BREAKING @SheilaKuehl @MayorOfLA @ericgarcetti gives Patti Giggins @PeaceOvrViolnce permission to “create a generous budget”with public funds & just denied on @FOXLA knowledge of the contract.

On September 14, 2022, the Santa Monica home of Sheila Kuehl was raided by LA County Sheriff's deputies executing a search warrant, in connection with a Federal corruption probe. The Wilshire Blvd. headquarters of Peace Over Violence was also searched.
