Andre Spicer, also known as ‘Hub City Dre,’ a local radio host and entrepreneur who owns an alkaline water store in Compton, decided to activate young voters in Compton. So, he ran for the District 2 council seat.
Days before his runoff with incumbent Isaac Galvan ended, a whistleblower came forward with allegations that they along with at least 20 others, participated in voter fraud. The whistleblower said it was to ensure the incumbent remained unseated. Subsequently, charges were filed against five people including Galvan, but Galvan claims to be a Bad Boy who refuses to resign.
