Council candidate loses support due to rap video
November 14, 2013, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

SAN BERNARDINO — A San Bernardino city council candidate is drawing some flak after music videos he recorded have turned up that critics say promote violence and crime.

The San Bernardino Police Officers Association recently pulled its endorsement of Anthony Jones who is in a runoff election for a council seat. The organization said it received the music videos in which some of the lyrics focus on violence and a gunshot sound effect is heard.

The 23-year-old Jones doesn’t regret making the videos, one of which was recorded two years ago. He said he wouldn’t make similar videos now because he’s involved in local politics and didn’t appear too worried about losing an endorsement.

Jones said he had been open about his past in the music business and the video had been made in collaboration with others.
