Pete Buttigieg's iffy past as mayor of South Bend is coming back to haunt him. Ana Kasparian and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Read more here: go.tyt.com/mxl

"Multiple South Bend police officers tell The Young Turks that before Pete Buttigieg became mayor, they spoke with him and his donors about replacing the city’s first black police chief.

The officers denied having any racial animus toward then-Chief Darryl Boykins, who Buttigieg demoted in March 2012, three months into his mayoralty. In his presidential campaign, Buttigieg has suggested that reappointing Boykins in Jan. 2012 shows he supported the chief and removed him only reluctantly. But he has never directly responded to TYT’s report last year that during his 2011 mayoral campaign he discussed replacing Boykins, and did not respond to emailed questions and requests for comment for this story.

Buttigieg has said he demoted Boykins for his actions regarding an internal police phone line that was mistakenly recorded, leading to a federal investigation. As TYT reported, the recordings allegedly include police discussing a plan to get rid of Boykins that involved two Buttigieg donors."
