Costa Mesa City Council member and Mayor Pro Tem Allan Mansoor was served with legal papers alleging he was not a resident of Costa Mesa for several months in 2017. When an elected official resides outside the city they are elected to serve, their position immediately becomes vacant.
You can see the link here on Geoff West’s Facebook page. And the look on Mansoor’s facd is priceless.
Per West’s page:
This video shows Mayor Pro Tem Allan Mansoor being served with documents alleging that he was not living within the City of Costa Mesa and, based on state law, has sacrificed his seat on the City Council. If true, then we have a former Deputy Sheriff – a man who swore to enforce the law – actually intentionally breaking the law. It will be interesting to watch this play out.
Sources tell TheLiberalOC the suit has several eye witness accounts of Mansoor living outside of city limits, evidence that others resided in apartments he was registered to vote from, and other declarative statements that will prove Mansoor should have been removed from office months ago.
One thing is clear; Mansoor should not count on the taxpayers of Costa Mesa to pick up the tab for his legal defense here.
This will be fun to watch.
