Sacramento County Board of Supervisors candidate Steve Ly addresses attack ads, suggest possible litigation

Responding to an attack advertisement launched against him, Sacramento County Board of Supervisors District 5 candidate Steve Ly held a news conference yesterday. 

Yesterday voters in the District 5 area started receiving a mailer paid for by the California Association of Realtors. The mailer resurrected claims made against Ly during his 2020 Elk Grove Mayoral reelection campaign that he bullied women candidates.

Ly, who had served two two-year terms as mayor, was defeated by Bobbie Singh-Allen. During the campaign, responding to political pressure, the Elk Grove City Council requested but was not granted an investigation by the Sacramento County Grand Jury into the accusations. 

The mailer suggests a grand jury investigation was conducted with attribution to the Sacramento Bee. Ly news conference, which was held at the entry doors of the Sacramento Association of Realtors office on Howe Avenue in Sacramento, addressed the mailers and suggested possible litigation.

Other speakers included David Phomavong, Ly's wife, Ms. Cua Lo-Ly, and retired Sacramento County Deputy Sheriffs Donna Cox and Rosemary Codog. Their comments can be heard in the audio recording posted below.

"Today I say to you, I refuse to be your scapegoat or victim any further," Ly said.
