Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa was caught in what the LAist website called an "oops" moment at the Democratic National Convention Wednesday night.
The mayor, who served as chairman of the DNC, called for three votes on whether to invoke God in the party platform and reaffirm the role of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. It was not his finest hour in front of the camera, according to some observers.
Villaraigosa's handling of the vote was called "awkward" by the Los Angeles Times. Jon Stewart, host of the The Daily Show on Comedy Central, had fun pointing out that Villaraigosa's awkwardness might have been due to the fact that an affirmative vote had been scripted on his teleprompter. Villaraigosa approved the vote, saying that two-thirds of the delegates had voted in the affirmative, although many objected.
