San Fernando mayor admits to affair during council meeting

SAN FERNANDO, Calif.

In audio from last Monday's meeting, Mayor Mario Hernandez announced he filed for personal bankruptcy, separated from his wife and was having an affair with Councilwoman Maribel De La Torre.

"I'd like to put out there and squash the rumors that yes I have been in a relationship with Councilwoman de la Torre," said Hernandez.

According to the San Fernando Sun, Hernandez's wife was sitting in the front row during the meeting and said they were not separated.

She was then ushered out by police at her husband's request.
