The Political and Family Interests of Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard and Indicted CD-14 City Councilman Jose Huizar Intertwined?

As the Corruption Investigation of Indicted CD-14 City Councilman Jose Huizar continues, questions are mounting regarding the extent of Cooperation between the Indicted Officeholder and Family Members of the  longtime Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard. 
Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard with Indicted CD-14 City Councilman Jose Huizar at Bringing Back Broadway Presentation.
 ** Blogger's Notes: As a growing list of the Los Angeles Political Machine seek to distance themselves from the growing scandal originating from 200 North Spring Street, we have search without success for any semblance of a comment, or statement regarding the Investigation from the Daughter of late Pioneer Eastside City Councilman (and Congressman) Edward Roybal.

It should be a given that longtime Congresswomen Lucille Roybal-Allard would find deplorable the alleged corrupt conduct that has been linked to the Princeton Graduate, turned suspended CD-14 Officeholder, considering that her Father was known for his uber-ethical proclivities.

But as noted previously, Congresswoman Roybal-Allard has been linked in the past to local Officeholders (City of Bell's George Cole) who have been convicted for Political Corruption, and with the Indictment of Councilman Huizar, its only logical that inquiries would be forthcoming regarding their political cooperation.

As pictured above, the Congresswoman was an active partner with Councilman Huizar in helping to secure funding for his proposed Downtown LA Streetcar Project, supporting the Bringing Back Broadway Imitative, and other numerous endeavors/projects of mutual interest.

That stated, its of interest to review whether Congresswoman Roybal-Allard's cooperation/support of Councilman Huizar's Pet Projects, was reciprocated in kind by the CD-14 Officeholder, in regards to business endeavors of Congresswoman's Family?  

Congresswoman Roybal-Allard's Niece Loushana Roybal-Rose, was listed as a Co-owner of the Align Gallery on York Blvd in Highland Park, in an area that is The Epicenter for the Gentrification of the Community.

In recent years, longtime community members have spoken out on the impact of Councilman Huizar's support (for the right fee, allegedly) of the new bars, restaurants, pot shops and galleries, that have replace numerous Latino Businesses along the York Blvd. Corridor.

The irony of Loushana Roybal-Rose's Investment in the Align Gallery, with its contribution to the Gentrification of York Blvd, is impossible to dismiss, considering her Grandfather's solitary fight against the Gentrification of Chavez Ravine via the building of Dodger Stadium .......... and an issue of current interest to her family members.

Roybal-Rose, along with her Mom Lillian, Edward Roybal Jr and Cousin Lou Roybal Gardner, are seeking to usurp the ethical legacy of the Lucille and Edward Roybal Foundation, by engaging in a legally-questionable takeover of the Public 501-C3 Non-Profit, that is allegedly-rooted in the potential monetary gain from a pending "Gentrification" (via the Metro Gold Line Extension) of the Foundation Property in East LA. To be continue-----Scott Johnson..

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

Pasadena Mayor Terry Tornek has nominated District 3 City Councilman John J. Kennedy to serve on the Burbank, Glendale, Pasadena Airport Authority, who would become the only African-American to serve on the Board that oversees operations at Hollywood Burbank Airport.   
Pasadena Mayor Terry Tornek and District 3 City Councilman John J. Kennedy.
** Blogger's Notes: The Mayor Sam Sister City News Group has learned that Pasadena Mayor Terry Tornek will nominated District 3 City Councilman John J. Kennedy to serve on the prestigious Burbank, Glendale, Pasadena Airport Authority. The appointment of Councilman Kennedy would  add African-American representation to the oversight entity that is currently made up of eight White Males and a lone Female. Local Political Observers are sure to note that the decision by Mayor Tornek to appoint Councilman Kennedy, will have Ballot Box implications come November as he face a major challenge for re-election from District 5 Councilman Victor Gordo who garnered the most votes in the March Primary. As noted previously, Councilman Gordo was endorsed by the Union which represents Pasadena Firefighters who were supportive of City Manager Steve Mermell's controversial decision to reassign African-American Fire Chief Bertral Washington, in a move met with silence .........., by Mayoral Challenger Victor Gordo.
The Appointment of Councilman Kennedy would add diversity to the Burbank, Glendale, Pasadena Airport Authority.

As we edge ever-closer to the November Elections, its becoming apparent that the African-American Vote will play a MAJOR part in determining whether President Donald J. Trump will be elected to a Second Term. That stated, its important to note that former dueling commentators Libertarian Talk Show Host Larry Elder and Civil Rights Attorney/Talk Show Host Leo Terrell ......., are BOTH supporting President Trump. Both Elder and Terrell's support of President Trump, is a microcosm sample of the Second Term-seeking Commander in Chief's growing support among African-Americans, as noted in recent polls. If President Trump garners 20% of the African-American Vote, he WILL be elected to a second Term.  
 Unmasking Mayor Eric Garcetti's Wuhan Virus Hypocrisy.
Unless you rely exclusively on the "El Segundo Stenographer of Record (formerly LA Times)" for your daily regurgitation of Wuhan Virus Panic Porn, the real news regarding the latest SURGE of positive cases .........., is contrary to the dire pronouncements. As noted by the likes of Alex Berensen, Phil Kerpen, Alicia Smith and locally by Ian Miller,  the numbers of positive cases and deaths have been trending downwards in the last couple of weeks.----Scott Johnson.

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

The Mayor Sam Sister City News Group coverage of the Lillian and Edward Roybal 501-C3 Public Non-Profit continues as questions mount whether the attempted Ethically/Legally-Questionable Board of Directors Takeover, is predicated on controlling the potentially, lucrative property value, as the neighboring Metro Gold Line Extension to Whittier ........., moves forward.   
Congresswoman Lucille (Daughter of Edward) Roybal-Allard presenting disgrace former City of Bell City Councilman (and Oldtimers Foundation Executive Director) George Cole ........, with Certificate of Appreciation. 
** Blogger's Notes: Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard is no stranger to the ethical and legal pratfalls of 501-C3 Public Non-Profits within her Congressional District, as witnessed by her association (pictured above) with the Huntington Park-located Oldtimers Foundation, which had as its Executive Director, the disgraced City Of Bell Mayor/City Councilman George Cole. For years, multiple, local government entities (including the City of Bell), allocated public funds that in part, financed the salary of Cole and enriched his politically-connected allies. Years later, speculation is growing that another Public 501-C3 Non-Profit is the target of another politically-connected, self-enrichment scheme ........., being perpetrated by family members of the Congresswoman. As previously reported by Mayor Sam, family members of Congresswoman Roybal-Allard (and her late Father Congressman Edward Roybal), are seeking a hostile takeover of the Public Non-Profit Board of Directors ........., for reasonS meriting further investigation. One reason meriting further scrutiny, is the control of the Edward and Lucille Roybal Foundation Property on Beverly (near Atlantic) .........., next to the current terminus of the Metro Light Rail Gold Line. The recently-approved Whittier Extension of the Gold Line, will likely increase the value of the parcel, which can present lucrative opportunities for those controlling the property, especially those politically-connected to the same type of public agencies ........., that funded the Oldtimers Foundation. To be continued.   
Is the attempted Takeover of the Public 501-C3 Edward and Lucille Roybal-Foundation, predicated on a possible, lucrative property deal connected to the approved, Metro Gold Line Extension to Whittier?

Former CD-14 City Councilman Jose Huizar Staffer (and Assemblywoman Wendy Carrillo Chief of Staff) George Esparza, pleaded GUILTY today, and now has plenty of time to sing ........., before his February, 2021 Sentencing. Those who are longtime CD-14 Observers, will remember Esparza beginning his now infamous Political Career, as a low-pay "Go-For" ........, that morphed into criminal conduct. In the weeks, months ahead, we can expect that Esparza will produce ..........., in order to reduce his time in jail.

As of Wednesday Evening, Los Angeles Failure Mayor 2.0 Eric "Yoga Pants" Garcetti, has not put Angelinos on Code Red Stay at Home Orders .........., for reason not to his controlling favor. As noted by Ian Miller, the Panic Porn of Dire Ramifications being pushed by Public Officials (to cover for condoning Mask-Free Protests), have not materialize. It imperative that when being presented with pronouncements, that include Calizuela becoming the Top State for Wuhan Virus Cases, yo must research the background predication for the reported figures ........., as exampled by the Mask-less Mayor Yoga Pants -----Scott Johnson.

Update on the Lucille and Edward Roybal Foundation Controversy

** Blogger's Notes: In a Mayor Sam Sister City News Group Exclusive, we make public a Press Release (posted below), from the Board of Directors of the Lucille and Edward Roybal Foundation, which details the ethically/legally questionable attempt by family members of the late Latino Political Icon, to purge them and replace them from the Public 501-C3 Non-Profit. As reported here previously, the foursome of Lou Roybal Gardner, Edward Roybal Jr., Loushana Roybal-Rose and Lillian Roybal, could face serious ethical/legal ramifications from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for violating Conflict of Interest Protocols which govern the composition of Public 501-C3 Non-Profit's Board of Directors.

Morning Briefs on the Wuhan Virus Scene in Los Angeles (and Beyond) for Tuesday

 The Los Angeles Unified School District, USC, LA Mayor Eric Garcetti, California Governor Gavin Newsom and the Pasadena Tournament of Roses (?), are featured as the Mayor Sam Sister City News Group endeavors to provide the latest unbiased, Wuhan Virus News and Facts.
The Official Unmasked Wuhan Virus Politico Hypocrite:
** Blogger's Notes: As the likes of Calizuela Governor Gavin ?Maduro" Newsom,  LA Failure Mayor 2.0 Eric "Yoga Pants", the LA County Minister of Social Health Barbara Ferrer, with stenographic regurgitation from a "Formerly Fishwrap of Record (on Spring Street)", push for a return to draconian Wuhan Virus Stay-at-Home Decrees, the Mayor Sam Sister City News Group recommits to the cyber-endeavor of providing the latest unbiased news and facts, as it becomes more readily-apparent, that politics, not science, is the paramount motive for the regressive actions being initiated by the likes of Governor Newsom and Mayor Garcetti. Instead of promoting Improvisation, Adaptation and striving to Overcome a Communist China-originating Wuhan Virus, the controlling One Party Collectivist Machine that reigns over Los Angeles y California, has digress to using science-challenged decrees, in pursuit of a desired "November Political Goal" ........., that is already having adverse fiscal, ethical and health ramifications.  The law-abiding, objective majority can readily discern that the recent spikes in Positive Wuhan Virus Reports, is the byproduct of recent Protests (as admitted to by Mayor Yoga Pants), a Border Region Surge out of Imperial County ........, and the FACT that we are conducting more tests (locally and nation-wide). The objective majority seeking factually and science-based content on the Wuhan Virus, would find it imperative to review daily content from the likes of Alex Berenson, Phil Kerpen, Alicia Smith and Ian Miller, rather than read today's formerly "LA Antonio Times" Editorial, that espouses doing away (for now) with the California State Bar Exam ......., which a certain Ex Failure Mayor Namesake, failed FOUR Times-----Scott Johnson.

Bloggin Briefs on the Eve of Fiscal New Year 2020/2021

 On the Eve of Fiscal New Year 2020/2021 (and the supposed Fourth of July Holiday Weekend), Calizuela Governor Maduro Newsom, Mayor Yoga Pants Garcetti and the LA County Minister of Health Barbara Ferrar, have decreed that Bars, Beaches and Fireworks Displays will be BANNED this Independence (Naught) Weekend .........,while allowing for Marxist-led Anti-Police Protests.
Wuhan Virus Super-Spreader Mayor Yoga Pants Garcetti.
** Blogger's Notes: In ideal times, the Eve of a Fiscal New Year would be a joyful time to commend those who denied our One Party Political Machine of the opportunity to waste more Public Money (via the defeat of Measure EE) ........, but 2020 has been anything but. A virus which originated in the most populous Communist Country, combine with rabid, Marxist (and Fellow Traveling Media)-inspired reaction to the death of a devout George Floyd, now has conspired to put a BAN on the Freedom to celebrate our Country's Independence Day in 2020. The Troika of Calizuela Governor Maduro Newsom, LA Mayor Yoga Pants Garcetti and the Minister of Social Health Barbara Ferrar, have decreed that the supposed rise in Positive Cases (while comparing the number of tests) of the Wuhan Virus, is grounds to close Bars, Beaches and Public Displays of Fireworks (without LASD enforcement) .........., while allowing for continuous, Marxists-led Protest Marches.  Let the Pushback ........, BEGIN!!

Outtakes on the Arresting Council District A Political Machine Developments for Tuesday

In the early morning dawn, the corrupt reign of a Princeton Graduate, turned philandering, corrupt "Council District-A (aka. 14) City Councilman" Jose Huizar, has come to an overdue end as the FBI/DOJ arrested the supposed "Mastermind of the CD-A Criminal Enterprise".
The Magnitude of Jose Luis Huizar's Corrupt Reign is no more.
** Blogger's Notes: In the pre-dawn morning light, a Princeton Graduate, turned a corrupt, philandering political reprobate CD-14 City Councilman, Jose Luis Huizar, began his involuntary incarnation as a documented Crook, who's willing City Hall and Communal Enablers, await their own ........, Day of Reckoning. Since his first full term in 2007, alleged Councilman Huizar's misdeeds have been the inspiration for commentary fodder here at Mayor Sam, in line with the documented, Acts of Retribution, targeting the likes of those who objectively reported on the numerous allegations. In recent years, as the Mayor Sam Blog continue to report the alleged, ethical malfeasance behavior taking place in CD-14, their was a continuing, "Response of Silence",from supposed "Community Leaders/Organizations (TERA, Mike y Yolanda Nogueira, The El Sereno Bicentennial Parade Committee, Legacy LA, Mago Amador, Hillside Village Property Owners Association, Concern Neighbors of El Sereno, and Downtown LA Interests to name a few), who were/are more concern with preserving their specific interests ........, than taking a stand for Communal Ethics. In the days/weeks ahead, as the corruption case against Jose Luis Huizar plays out in the Halls of Justice, the now Mayor Sam Sister City News Group, will continue to report, disclose and hold accountable those responsible for Huizar's Reign of Corruption ........., and a certain, future CD-14 Officeholder who may be its 2.0 Incarnation----Scott Johnson.

Mayor Sam Exclusive: The Old Ways of Family at the Roybal Foundation ....., with Legal Ramifications

In a Mayor Sam Sister City News Group Exclusive, we begin series of missives chronicling members of the late Congressman Edward Roybal Family's legally-questionable attempt to remove the current Board of Directors of the Namesake 501-C3 Non-Profit, as they seek a return to Family Control of the longtime Foundation.  
The Lucille and Edward Roybal Foundation Office in East Los Angeles.
** Blogger's Notes: On a beautiful October Saturday Night at the Tournament of Roses House in Pasadena last Fall, an evening of giving witness to the legacy of late Latino Congressman Edward Roybal, heralded a new tomorrow for the formerly Namesake Family Foundation (now Public 501-C3) ......., or so it seemed. Eight months later, the positive of last October's Roybal Gala has been replace by a bitter battle over the control of the Roybal Foundation's Board of Directors as the Roybal Family Trio of Edward Roybal Jr., Lou Roybal Gardner and Loushana Roybal-Rose, are seeking to remove the Board Members who played a major role in organizing the Pasadena Event. On the surface, its apparent that the Family Trio involve, have a desire to return to the "Old Ways of Family", in regards to using The Foundation for their respective self-interests, without any consideration to legal, ethical and reputation of the Foundation. Below, we have obtained copies of texts that gives witness to the interaction between Loushana Roybal-Rose and Board Member Ramon Miramontes, as the "Old Ways of Family", clashes with a Board Member who is responsible for the ethical/legal oversight of the Foundation's assets. In future post, we will highlight the legal implications of the actions noted above .........,and accord all involve an opportunity to respond to our coverage----Scott Johnson.

Outtakes from the Southeast LA Backrooms of Political Misdeeds

The Mayor Sam Sister City News Group reintroduces its "Outtakes from the Southeast LA Backrooms of Political Misdeeds" as multiple generations of those politically-connected, continue on in the ethically-tired tradition of rewarding cronyism ........., at the expense of communal values. 
Notorious Southeast Los Angeles Political Miscreant Mario Beltran (lower left, with glasses) and his Political Cast of Enablers.
** Blogger's Notes: In a world that has been on pause due to a Virus from Wuhan, China and united in the Just Cause of Justice for George Floyd, the one constant that has not change is the Infestation of ethically-challenged Political/Communal Cronyism in Southeast LA. From the local City Halls of Governance to the Board of Directors of Community-based 501-C3 Non-Profits, multiple generations of supposed Community Leaders, are still afflicted with the notion that Cronyism/Nepotism, is paramount over ethics/openness/transparency, when engaging in the conduct of their respective entities of control. In recent weeks, continuing examples of this behavior has manifested itself in the City Halls of Commerce y Montebello, an Assembly Campaign in Southeast LA's 59th Assembly District ........., and a supposed 501-C3 Non-Profit, allegedly-committed to the Legacy (or family patronage?) of a Latino Political Pioneer, the late Congressman Edward Roybal. Below, we briefly update our continuing cyber-coverage of these local issues, in the interest of exposing those ethically-challenged and providing needed openness and transparency----Scott Johnson.

Mayor Sam Exclusive: Commerce City Councilman John Soria Daylights As A Montebello Transit Admin Manager

In a Mayor Sam Exclusive, we have confirm that City of Commerce City Councilman John Soria is now employed by the City of Montebello as a "Transit Admin Manager", prompting speculation regarding his supposed departure from a paid, Los Angeles County Sheriff Department Civilian Position.
Was Commerce City Councilman John Soria's Public Embrace of notorious Southeast LA Politico Mario Beltran's Cannabis Interests, the reason for his new Montebello Paid Position?
** Blogger's Notes: In a Mayor Sam Sister City News Group Exclusive, we confirm that controversial Commerce City Councilman John Soria, is now employed as a "Transit Admin Manager" for the neighboring Montebello Municipal Transportation Department, prompting speculation regarding his supposed departure from a civilian position with the Los Angeles Sheriff Department.
A source tells Mayor Sam that an employee ("Tiffany?") of the City of Montebello Transportation Department, confirmed that a "John Soria" is employed by the agency. 
As noted previously by the Hews Media Group, Councilman Soria was a subject of an Internal Investigation by his now, ex. employer for his public embracing of notorious Southeast LA Politico Mario Beltran's Cannabis Interests.
In recent weeks, rumors have been broached that Soria, along with Political Ally Mayor Ivan Altamirano, are supportive of replacing the LA County Sheriff Public Safety Contract, with a new partnership involving the City of Montebello Police Department. Thus fueling the speculation that Soria's new Job, is an ethically-challenged "Down Payment" for his future support of Montebello assuming The Model City's policing----Scott Johnson.

A Bloggin Mayor Sam Sister City News Group Re-Opening

After a too-long hiatus, the Mayor Sam Sister City News Group commences its bloggin Re-Opening, as a City, State, Nation and World, seeks an arduous return to a previous normal, while holding accountable those who have fail their fellow citizens, via episodes of ethical, moral and character breaches of behavior.  
A Failure Mayor 2.0 Unmasked
** Blogger's Notes: A too-long hiatus comes to a needed ending.
Since our last post in March, these last three historic months has seen a World, Nation, State, City, Friends and Family, endure a Pandemic originating in a Communist-controlled Country, then witness a heinous breach of moral conduct (the Death of George Floyd), that has profound implications on the stability of our already-wounded society.
As with any crisis, those that we appoint into position of leadership, are expected to conduct themselves and execute their authority, with respect to the laws that supposedly safeguard our rights granted to us by the Constitution .........., or so we thought.
In the days ahead as the Mayor Sam Sister City News Group re-commences its cyber-dialog, its our paramount priority to promote a non-conditional discussion (no Cancel Culture Threats withstanding), on those who have used a Pandemic, and a senseless Death, to promote a self-serving agenda that takes for granted the Rule of Law and the Rights accorded us by a "Timeless Document" that is truly "Color-Blind" .........., when strictly-interpretive. Below are brief missives on content coverage in the days ahead-----Scott Johnson.
The Congratulations for "Councilman A and Relative" continues. 
To all our cyber-friends in "Council District A", enduring the Wuhan Virus-related restrictions has been somewhat elevated by the drip, drip, drip, drip outing of what we have reported all along .........., that the Princeton-educated Founder (with support of others) of a Political Criminal Enterprise ......., will be hopefully, relocated to a Federal Property in the near future and a certain "Scheduler, turned Deputy Chief of Staff" ..............., was paid off with Dirty Money. More later.

In an ideal world, a formerly Family Foundation (now a formal 501-C3 Non-Profit), rooted in preserving the Legacy of Latino Political Pioneer Congressman Edward Roybal, would be inclusive of those who share the values of the late Los Angeles Icon ........, or so we sought. In the days ahead, the Mayor Sam Sister City News Group will exclusively disclose how those once in control of a Family Foundation, now are seeking to arbitrarily oust the current 501-C3 Board Incarnation, in a style of politics that the late Congressman would find lacking in moral ......, and ethical standing.  
Former Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez and enabling Republican RINO Friend.
As friends were losing elder family members to the Wuhan Virus, the likes of former Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez, now a well-compensated Lobbyist for the Mercury Group, was resorting to the old Democratic Party tactic of not letting a Crisis go to waste ........, by allegedly enabling a PR/Communications Contract for his current Employer.

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.

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
