Saying he welcomed the ongoing investigations into whether he wielded inappropriate influence in two cases involving his daughter, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck lashed out Tuesday at a blogger and journalists for reporting on a family member.

“I feel I will be vindicated,” Beck said in comments to the Police Commission, referring to investigations being carried out by the department’s inspector general.

At issue is whether Beck played any role in a decision last year to settle a discipline case with a sergeant who had been accused of having inappropriate relationships with two female officers, one of whom is Beck’s daughter.

The inspector general is also looking into the decision by LAPD officials to use funds raised by a private foundation to purchase a horse from Beck’s daughter, who is a member of the department’s equestrian unit.
