Ex CD-12 City Councilman Mitch Englander Indicted on Seven Counts of Obstruction-related Charges

Former CD-12 City Councilman Mitch Englander will be free on $50,000 Bail tonight as the US Attorney Office makes public a Seven Count Indictment for obstructing a FBI Investigation of City Hall Corruption, with speculation rampant of more Arrests in the days ahead. 
Former CD-12 City Councilman Mitch Englander will not be wearing his LAPD Reservist Uniform anytime soon.
** Blogger's Notes: As the local US Attorney Office made public its first Indictments resulting from the FBI Investigation of Los Angeles City Hall Corruption, we were reminded of the "2014 Prophetic Musings (with humor)" of former LAPD Chief and CD-8 City Councilman Bernard Parks ......., but surprise what "Horseshoe Criminal" was first to be exposed.
Following last week's Elections, a well-connected source told the Mayor Sam Sister City News Group that Federal Law Enforcement Officials were holding off on taking legal action resulting from its well-reported investigations of nefarious dealings originating at 200 N. Spring Street, to avoid any appearance of interference in the now completed balloting and on this Monday-after ........, they made their surprising first move.
The surprise was that Ex CD-12 City Councilman Mitch Englander, became the of first former Councilman Parks, now "Criminally-charged Colleagues", to be Indicted by the US Attorney Office for what appears to be his thought-challenged attempts to obstruct the FBI's Investigation into his alleged "Pay to Play Misconduct"
As reported by now Los Angeles Magazine Contributor Jon Regardie, the unsuccessful LA County Board of Supervisor Candidate, known as "Fifelander (think Mayberry's Barney Fife)", lived up to his bloggin moniker as evident from the following excerpt. 
the indictment alleges that, at least three times, Englander tried to persuade Businessperson A either to provide false statements to the FBI, or omit relevant information. That includes an encounter on Feb. 12, 2018, when, according to the indictment, Englander and Businessperson A met in the councilman’s car, and Englander instructed him to lie to the FBI. Englander allegedly did this while turning up the volume on the car stereo to obstruct possible listening devices, and driving around the block in a circle. 

More shocking (or not), is that former Englander Chief of Staff and now CD-12 City Councilman John Lee, was one of the then staffers who joined their Boss on a Las Vegas Junket and stated today ......., that he did "everything in his power to pay for and reimburst expenses related to this trip", as reported by the Red State Website.

That noted, we can report via CityWatch LA's Investigated Reporter Daniel Guss, that Englander's Wife and Daughter were in the Courtroom this afternoon as he agreed to turn over his multiple (seven) firearms, passport and pledge to remain in California, in returned for being released on  $50,000 Bail, with a return Court Appearance on Thursday----Scott Johnson.
Wiping away the facade of an ethical, Family Man Mitch Englander.

Election Day Briefs Regarding Extreme Campaign Tactics Employed By The Political Machine

From the Front Porch of Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey, through the illegal signage encroachment of CD-14 Private Property/Public Space and the improper collecting of Absentee Ballots in Commerce, the LA County Democratic Machine led by Mark "Mini Bauman" Gonzalez, goes to the Ethical Extremes on behalf of its chosen Candidates for Public Office.
Los Angeles County Democratic Party Chairperson Mark "Mini Bauman" Gonzalez (standing on the right), is no stranger when it comes to engaging in extremely-questionable Campaign Tactics.
** Blogger's Notes: With no apologies to the (now meaningless) Billionairehead Tom, Mayor Pete, along with Angry Amy Voters, today is the actual day designated to cast an inform vote (in an ideal Republic), but in reality, LA County is the exploitation and low-information ballot-harvesting base of the Calizuela Democratic One Party Machine ......., and those who challenge it can face extreme campaign tactics.
As Republicans unite in the spirit of ensuring another four years of MAGA Prosperity, our Democratic Friends will cast ballots as political combatants in a continuing battle that will have national and local ramifications ......., with electioneering tactics taking on questionable extremes.
In LA County's "Down-Ticket Elections", recent events in the District Attorney, CD-14 City Council and Commerce Municipal Campaigns respectively, have given witness to the extreme tactics the Democrat Party Machine will engage in to support their anointed Candidates, with the apparent blessing of its Chairperson Mark "Mini Bauman" Gonzalez.
Northeast LA Progressive Activists are well-verse in the extremes that "Mini-Bauman" will allow in elections under his charge, as they successfully-challenged in the recent 51st AD Democratic Delegate Election (and forced Do-over), which saw "Mini-Bauman" resort to racist bombast in casting false dispersions on those making legitimate complaints.

Despite the successful challenge of Progressive Activists to the 51st AD Delegate Election Fiasco, its readily apparent that "Mini-Baumen" has not undertaken the needed leadership that would hold accountable those anointed by the local Party Machine for egregious Electioneering Behavior .........., as we document below------Scott Johnson. 
Black Lives Matter (and George Gascon Supporters?) harassing LA County DA Jackie Lacey.
Its an open secret that many in the anti-Law Enforcement Faction of the local Progressive Political Community (including Black Lives Matter), would love to see incumbent LA County District Attorney Jackie Lacey, replace by Billionaire Leftist George Soros-backed George Gascon ......., and the "Mini-Bauman-led Machine" agrees. The support of Gascon and the extreme tactics employed by the likes of Black Lives Matters, that garnered Nation-wide Attention on Monday, may result in a backlash that prompts an exodus of Moderates Democrats (including a growing number of African-Americans), if the Party remains silent on this type of extreme behavior.
CD-14 City Council Candidate Kevin Alexander (of or de) Leon's Campaign Associate caught posting Lawn Sign on Private Property ......, without permission.
It was a fleeting pleasure (before he walked off) to engage "Mini-Bauman" Gonzalez in a brief conversation at the recent CD-14 Boyle Heights Candidate Forum. While questioning why I was photographing Assemblyman Miguel Santiago-Mancia, the supposed enabler of #Me Too Empowerment, was evasive when asked why the Party Machine would not support quality Female Candidates and instead, endorsed the former Roommate of disgraced State Senator Tony Mendoza, who belittles his gender-opposite opponents, while condoning disparaging elderly constituents (as Adrian V. did to Caroline Aguirre), by calling them "Bi-polar/5150".  We also surmise that 'Mini-Bauman" would be evasive in commenting on the blatant illegal action of encroaching on Private Property and Public Open Space, for the purpose of promoting a supposed Green Candidate.    
Lastly, "Mini-Bauman" Gonzalez might find interest in how his Southeast LA Associates are engaging in Ballot Harvesting (before returning to Cannabis Cultivation), on behalf of the Party Machine-endorsed City Councilwoman Oralia Robello. The lady pictured below, was allegedly engaging in exploiting the Elderly in the City of Commerce to dispense with their Ballots, as noted in the Letter above. We would hope that "Mini-Bauman" would agree that the Elderly are deserving of extreme enforcement of all rules to protect them from electioneering exploitation, especially by those financed by the repugnant Mario Beltran Machine.
Who is allegedly exploiting the Elderly to dispense with their Absentee Ballots in Commerce?

Controversial Pasadena City Manager "Reassigns" African-American Fire Chief During Black History Month

On the eve of Pasadena Mayoral and Governing Council Elections, the untimely reassignment of its African-American Fire Chief Bertral Washington by controversial City Manager Steve Mermell, has prompted members of its historic Black Community (and Mayor Terry Tornek) to demand accountability, while Firefighters Union-backed Mayoral Challenger Victor Gordo ........, remains silent.   
Was Pasadena City Manager Steve Mermell's most recent controversial action to "reassign" African-American Fire Chief Bertral Washington, a peace offering to its Firefighters Union ......., and its endorsed Mayoral Candidate Victor Gordo?
** Blogger's Notes: A question of poor timing ........ and political purpose. That would surely apply to controversial Pasadena City Manager Steve Mermell, following his untimely "reassignment (during Black History Month)" of African-American Fire Chief Bertral Washington, mere weeks before the "Crown City's" upcoming Mayoral and City Council Elections. 
Mermell, who has been the focus of investigative-scrutiny for questionable decision-making regarding Pasadena City Government's selection of Legal Cannabis Vendors, now is under fire for his surprise "City Manger Office Reassignment" of Chief Washington, without consulting the Mayor and City Council, as noted by the Pasadena Star News.

Pasadena Councilman John Kennedy said he may urge his colleagues to replace the city’s top executive, Steve Mermell, over the unexpected reassignment of fire Chief Bertral Washington. The threat came during the public comments portion of Monday night’s City Council meeting, when dozens of black Pasadenans filled council chambers for the second consecutive meeting, calling for answers about the fire chief’s reassignment to a special position in the City Manager’s Office earlier this month.
While City Manager Steve Mermell's timing of Chief Washington's reassignment opens the Blimp Hanger's Doors to rampant speculation regarding the racial connotations of his latest controversial personnel action, its worth noting that Pasadena's Latino Councilman (and Firefighter's Union-backed Mayoral Candidate) Victor Gordo ........., has mostly remain silent on the controversy.

Firefighters Union-endorsed Pasadena Mayoral Candidate Victor Gordo 
As the Mayoral Candidate backed by the Los Angeles County Labor Federation, Gordo can be expected to support the Pasadena Firefighters Union's battle, in its apparent longtime feud with the management of Chief Washington, regardless of the racial overtones.

Further, its also worth noting Gordo's "Union Brothers and Sister's Role" in supporting the efforts of Pasadena's Illegal Cannabis, which should prompt Pasadena Voters to question whether a "Mayor Victor Girdo", would be a "Union-crafted Trojan Horse", that would make paramount the interests of Union Power Couple Ron Herrera/Maria Elena Durazo ..........., at the expense to Pasadena's hard fought efforts to combat racial inequality----Scott Johnson.

The Sunday-before Briefs on Tuesday Election Proceedings

On this Sunday-before Calizuela's March 3 Primary Elections, the Mayor Sam Sister City News Group provides updates on the Los Angeles County District Attorney Race, the Presidential Primary, the Anti-Prop 13 Property Tax Hike Scheme and a link to an informed Voter Guide for Judges.
Will Billionaire Leftist George Soros add the LA County District Attorney Office (via Progressive Challenger George Gascon) to his growing list of bought Election Victories?
** Blogger's Notes: On this First Day of March, we are 48hrs. away from Calizuela's inaugural participation in the Super Tuesday Presidential Primary. While most of the supposed objective Media attention is fixated on the Top of the Ticket, voters would find it wise to educate themselves on the ramifications of selecting candidates that will make worse, "quality of life issues (ie. homeless crisis, crime, taxes, among many)", affecting those who still residing in the once ........., "Golden State".

Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles (and Beyond) Political Machine for Hump Day

Its becoming readily apparent that the formerly "Average Joe (Buscaino)", is morphing into another "Autocratic Politico" as the CD-15 Officeholder faces a backlash over his alleged City Charter-violating Scheme, to arbitrarily change the boundaries of the Central San Pedro Neighborhood Council, at the detriment to the Wilmington NC.   
Are the formerly "Average Joe" Buscaino's Autocratic Political Schemes, a precursor for his supposed 2022 Mayoral aspirations? 
** Blogger's Notes: Once upon a time in CD-15, there was an "Average Joe of San Pedro" who only wanted to serve his community with home-grown pride ............, but that was back in 2011. Now in 2020, its becoming readily apparent that "Average Joe" is morphing into another "Autocratic Politico" ........., with 2022 Mayoral aspirations. The now "Autocratic Politico (at 200 Spring Street)", is facing a major backlash from Neighborhood Council Advocates for his supposed City Charter-violating Scheme to arbitrarily-alter the boundaries of the Central San Pedro Neighborhood Council (with non-sanctioned help from Empower LA Staff), to the detriment of the Wilmington NC

Mayor Sam Exclusive: The CD-14 K.A. Leon Campaign's Disdain for Electioneering Rules

In a Mayor Sam Exclusive, we expose alleged Acts of Illegal Electioneering by the CD-14 City Council Campaign of Kevin Alexander (of or de) Leon as his Million Dollars-plus of Special Interests Funding, pays for dozens of "Rent-A-Campaigners", engaging in ethically-challenged GOTV Tactics. 
CD-14 City Council Candidate K.A. (of or de) Leon's "Rent-A-Campaigners" allegedly caught encroaching on Private Property, seeking to illegally post Campaign Signs.

The LA Time's "Backroom Hypocrisy" regarding its Non-Endorsement of Herb Wesson for LA County Board of Supervisors

The formerly "Fishwrap of Record (on Spring Street)" briefly departs from replicating the Los Angeles County Democratic Party's Endorsements, with its support of State Senator Holly Mitchell for the LA County Board of Supervisors District Two Office, citing termed-out LA CD-10 City Councilman Herb Wesson's "Backroom Style", while ignoring the same ethically-challenged proclivities of its CD-14 endorsed Candidate Kevin Alexander (of or de) Leon.  
Why the LA Times's "Backroom Concerns" of Herb "Mini Amin" Wesson, but not Kevin Alexander (of or de) Leon?
** Blogger's Notes: If anyone needed a reaffirmation regarding the subjective devolution of the formerly "Fishwrap of Record (once located on Spring Street)", then look no further than its stenographic-like replication of the Los Angeles County Democratic Party Establishment's Endorsements ........., with the exception of its choice for the LA County Board of Supervisors District Two Office.

A Formerly "Fishwrap of Record (on Spring Street)" Goes Big On ......, "The LA (of or de) Leon Times Era"

The formerly "Fishwrap of Record on Spring Street (aka. LA Times)" repeats CD-14 Agenda Journalism History, via its Endorsement of Temporary City Council Candidate (and 2022 Mayoral Aspirant) Kevin Alexander Leon as the failed 2003 "LA Antonio (Villar) Times" Incarnation, gives way to "The LA (of or de) Leon Times Era" of subjective reporting ............, at the lost to communal ethics. 
The Wreckage of Journalistic Integrity on Spring Street.
** Blogger's Notes: Please pardon the momentary pause ......., as we continue to absorb a CD-14 Agenda Journalism Deja Vu Moment, compliments of the formerly "Fishwrap of Record on Spring Street (aka. LA Times)" 
In 2002, a then CD-14 City Councilman Nick Pacheco who was seeking a Second Term after his 1999 Grass Roots Upset of the South Pasadena's (and Establishment Carpetbagger) Victor Griego, was the Incumbent Impediment in the path of the ruthless Political Machine, seeking a temporary Officeholder Position for failed 2001 Mayoral Candidate Antonio Villaraigosa, to replenish resources for a 2005 Rematch against, then Mayor James Hahn.  
At Pacheco's Campaign Kickoff in a Second Floor Office near the intersection of Cesar Chavez and Soto, those in attendance (including this writer), will remember a Incumbent who spoke openly about the impending battle and somberly noted the vast resources being massed to remove him ........, including a supposed objective "Newspaper of Record".

Los Angeles Lakers Basketball Legend Kobe Bryant Dead at 41

The City of Angels is stun, in the aftermath of the Los Angeles Lakers Legend Kobe Bryant's tragic death, along with his Daughter Gianna and seven others, following the Crash of the Basketball Icon's Helicopter in Agoura.
Kobe Rests in Peace.
** Blogger's Notes: Its no understatement to say that the City of Los Angeles is stun, numb and grieving the untimely death of LA Lakers Legend Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna and seven others, following this morning's Crash of the Basketball Icon's Helicopter into a fog-covered hillside in Agoura
From near the Crash Site, to Staples Center and on Social Media, fans of the Lakers Legend are in a State of Profound Grief, seeking comfort and bearing witness regarding the impact of Kobe on the Basketball Court ......... and off.
In listening to the continuous reports on this morning's tragic event, one cannot gloss over the fact that Kobe (and the parents of his daughter's teammate), died in the pursuit of commitment to their respective daughter's athletic aspirations.
Godspeed and thoughts to the immediate families of the victims and all affected by today's tragedy----Scott Johnson.

Inconvenient Briefs on the LA Political Machine (and Beyond) for Friday

CityWatch LA's Daniel Guss keyboards another Inconvenient Truth regarding Mayor Eric Garcetti's Animal Services Department-appointee Roger Wolfson, who's "Domestic Issues", are worthy of a bloggin missive on the level of his former Political/Television Word-craft.  
Noted ex Political Staffer, Film/Television Writer, Attorney and latest Mayor Eric Garcetti Controversial Appointee Roger Wolfson.
** Blogger's Notes: Is it true that Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti likes to give appointed opportunities to those with ..........., "Domestic Issues"?
CityWatch LA's Daniel Guss keyboards another Inconvenient Truth regarding Mayor Garcetti's Animal Services Department-appointee Roger Wolfson, who would join supposed Mayor Staffer (and former CD-14 Deputy Chief of Staff) Henry Casas, as a documented Domestic Abuser, if the allegations were proven true.
The following excerpt is, very-interesting to note ..........
In El-Shinnawy’s application for a restraining order against Wolfson, she claimed that the LAPD did not respond to her May 13, 2014, plea for help. When I asked LAPD spokesperson Josh Rubenstein why that happened, he forwarded my request to the agency’s Discovery Unit but did not respond when I pointed out that the Discovery Unit doesn’t provide explanations, only records and notoriously withholds many of those, as well. 

........, considering that many are whispering about an alleged Echo Park Domestic Incident that LAPD may have documented, but will not disclosed.
The Agenda Wreckage of a "Fishwrap of Record (formerly on Spring Street)".
With apologies to certain Scribes at the supposed Los Angeles "Fishwrap of Record (relocated to El Segundo)", we have to question (again), the apparent subjective choices made by its Editors regarding ............., story budgeting.
In recent days, the alleged print-stenographer of the local Democratic Establishment, executed its agenda duty, by reporting on a Website Mistake by CD-12 City Councilman John Lee, who happens to be ............, a Republican.
The allocation of story budgeting to expose an apparent honest mistake by a CD-12 Staffer, is subjectively-disproportionate, considering that a former California Democratic Assemblyman and State Senate President, openly lied about the Council District of Birth last Friday ................., with a Times Staff Writer seated in the audience.

Its worth noting that the LA Times Editorial Board endorsed City Councilman Lee's Special Election (and 2020) Challenger Loraine Lundquist, that should give witness again to the mystical-quality of the Time's "Wall of News/Editorial Separation".
Glendale (residing in Maryland) Congressman Adam Schiff in his usual, delusional state.
Friday could not come soon enough for supposed Glendale-based, Calizuela 28th District Congressman Adam Schiff, who personifies the delusional mindset of Democratic (more like Seditioncratic) Politicians afflicted with, Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS).
As the Lead Seditioncrat House Manager, the emotions of fronting a taxpayers-financed attempt to remove a fairly-elected President Donald Trump, became a "Cry Me A River (of Lies) Moment" ........., worthy of the appropriate Musical Dedication
In noting Schiff's Ethical/Emotional Collapse on the Floor of the Senate, we would be remiss in not requesting your consideration of Schiff for Brain's Republican Challenger Eric Early, who will return legislated honor to a Congressional District in need of a Schiff Removal-----Scott Johnson.

Mayor Sam Exclusive: Fact Checking Kevin Alexander (of or de) Leon Regarding Council District of Birth

In a Mayor Sam Sister City News Group Exclusive, we fact check the Statement of CD-14 City Council Candidate Kevin Alexander (of or de) Leon made at last Friday's El Sereno Forum, regarding being a born native of the District.
The California Medical Center in Downtown LA.
** Blogger's Notes: During last Friday's CD-14 Candidate Forum in El Sereno, a tardy former Assemblyman, State Senate President and failed US Senate aspirant known politically as Kevin de Leon, did not waste any time in raising eye brows among the longtime CD-14 Stakeholders in attendance.
As the Local Political Machine's anointed choice to replace the termed-out City Councilman Jose Huizar within the John Ferraro Council Chamber's Horseshoe, de Leon is merely using candidate forum as an exercise to espouse pre-conceived talking points (when not belittling his opponents), but not without push back or fact checking .............., regarding the real Council District of his Birth.
In the course of de Leon's Friday's Opening Statement, audience members (and this Blogger), were surprise to learn that the formerly Assembly Candidate Carpetbagger (and current couch surfer) was born in CD-14 ........, or was he?

 Boyle Heights Native, Businesswoman and Educator Raquel Zamora, facilitated a refreshing Teachable Moment on what 21st Century Constituent Outreach should constitute as she showcased the endemic communal knowledge, that forms the foundation for her full term-committed, Grass Roots Campaign to replace CD-14 City Councilman Jose Huizar.

After 15 plus years of a Princeton Graduate, turned into a corrupt, vindictive, litigious, investigated, wife-cheating disgrace, via Jose Luis Huizar, the CD-14 Electorate has a rare opportunity to select a Officeholder who will place communal needs, before self, at 200 N. Spring Street.

A Bloggin Mayor Sam Merry Christmas 2019!!

We bloggin wish everyone a most-joyful Merry Christmas as we pledge to cyber-reconnect, with coverage of all the up (Presidential) and down ticket (CD 10 and 14) Elections, upcoming in 2020.
Who will benefit from Mayor Sam's Cyber Gift Bag this Christmas?
** Blogger's Notes: With a push of the power button, a certain, dormant blogger returns to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, with cyber-offerings forthcoming for the politically-good ......., and the naughty.
In the last few months, their has been a noted lack of postings for a simple reason, there is "less of me" ........, literally. 
Many of you who the late Michael Higby (wishing him the best in a better world) and myself, have met in person, will remember that the both of us, were rather rotund in girth and needed to part with some of our respective lbs (with inspiration from Jack Witt), and that became my paramount priority these last few months.
Bluntly, daily finger exercises on the keyboards do not suffice in decreasing body mass, especially when your weight is near 400 lbs. and you are dealing with a loss a of a parent. Thus, it was imperative that reconnecting with fitness, take priority over cyber-musing and minus 65 lbs (and counting) .........., its bloggin time to return.
While reconnecting with a forgotten task called "exercise (aquatics workouts to be specific)", we continue to multi-task, by keeping up to date on breaking news which included the Sham Impeachment (in reality a Cover Up of DOJ/CIA/FBI Spying on President Donald Trump), the journalistic devolution of the LA Times, the continuing Legal Marijuana Corruption in Southeast LA County and of course ........., the latest ex. staffer (Jesse Leon) to sue CD-14 City Councilman Jose Huizar.
Back to the moment at hand, we would be remiss in not giving thanks to those who have been supportive in a renewed dedication to physical and mental well-being. From the local Aquatic Center Staff to a core group of friends (Yosef, Terrance, Lydia, Leo, Art, Ramon, Phillip, Hugo, Anthony, Angela, Roy, Claudia, Caroline, Ernie, Santi y Amy and the staff at Jenny Craig), may your Christmas be blessed with spiritual good tidings as we give witness (once again) to the cyber-creation of a late (and still) Dear Friend Michael Higby----Scott Johnson.

Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles (and Beyond) Political Machine for Tuesday

On this Tuesday (a year before the 2020 Presidential Election), we are on 200 N. Spring Street Watch as Embellishing, Electioneering and Pandering are the continuing norm, as Los Angeles City Hall digresses towards March Municipal (and a possible Recall) Elections.
Mayor Eric Gar-SOBBing can't recall a better Model for dealing with LA's Homeless Crisis.
** Blogger's Notes: Let the countdown commence!! We are one year away from the 2020 Presidential (and down ticket) Elections and where do we start our blogging coverage?? 200 N. Spring Street. Los Angeles Mayor Eric Gar-SOBBing who's last term supposedly ends in 2022, is reacting predicatively to a resurgent Recall Campaign by resorting to the tired, political practice of ...., embellishing. Pardon me as I ......., LMAO, in response to Mayor Gar-SOBBing's statement that his Administration's Homeless Policy is the "Model Response" to emulate. The KRLA 870 AM Morning Answer's Hosts Jennifer Horn and Don Hicks (subbing for Lovable Liberal Brian Whitman), rightfully pointed out that San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, unlike Mayor Gar-SOBBing, has presided over a ..........., decrease in his municipality's Homeless Population
Can you count the number of current and ex Councilman Jose Huizar Staffers in attendance at CD-14 Candidate Kevin Alexander (of or de) Leon's El Sereno Meet and Greet?
Live from CD 14!! Its Campaign Time in CD 14 (and all even-numbered City of LA Council Districts) as the ruling One Party Junta in Calizuela has apparently anointed the former "State Senate Presidente Pro Tempore Kevin Alexander (of or de) Leon the First", the (temporary) Front Candidate to replace #Richellary2020 .........., as "Councilman Jose Huizar 2.0". In judging from the coordination/cooperation from ex and current Councilman Huizar (who went to Princeton) Staff, its an open secret that the failed US Senate Aspirant (who lost his own State Senate District to Senator Dianne Feinstein), is the desired (temporary?) Officeholder to lead a Huizar-like 2.0 Administration. 
Never underestimate a Northeast San Fernando Valley Democratic Political Machine Councilwoman's proclivity to Pander ........., despite some inconvenient truths.
It seemed like yesterday that CD-7 City Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez was raising the bar on the (paid?) electioneering pandering (including selling your own soul), that an aspiring candidate for Public Office would resort to in their ambition-driven quest to be elected. Yet, since her successful election as the Northeast San Fernando Valley Democratic Machine's designated replacement for the departed Felipe "FU" Fuentes, Councilperson Rodriguez has been ceaseless in her pandering to Campaign Supporters, despite the inconvenient truths (and embarrassing details) linked to those who are, now reaping the benefits of her Officeholder Largess ..........., more later----Scott Johnson.
