Jewish leaders in Los Angeles said they now believe the city’s mayor is not responsible for forging their names on cards endorsing his re-election. The leaders had previously blamed James Hahn for the cards, but now say they believe some Jewish volunteers were responsible. The cards ran as ads in local Jewish newspapers. Hahn faces a tough race in the May 17 runoff against Antonio Villaraigosa.
