We probably talked for less than a minute. It is then I heard somebody (I don’t know who it was) say that it was against the rules for you to still be there because you were a candidate in the election. You then quickly said goodbye and left.If this is what they are referring to as inappropriate electioneering, I need to talk to somebody because that is ridiculous. This is the only time I saw you all evening and I did not witness any inappropriate electioneering. I don’t know what the rules of inappropriate electioneering is but its the only time I saw you.I am off tomorrow but I’m back on Thursday. I will also call Stu Miller. I’m reluctant to get involved in theses type of situations but I also don’t appreciate somebody speaking on my behalf, especially when it’s untrue.Who can you suggest I contact or call in an attempt to remedy this or at least give my side of the story? Or who told you last night that you can’t remedy this situation, call witnesses or remedy the situation?Mike
Thus, contradictions in the evidence against Berlin and Preven, as exampled above (and legal pressure), may be why Empower LA took the drastic step to reconvene the Election Challenge Panel on May 9, 2016 .........., and the results were to rescind the Disqualification of Berlin and Preven (who was stilled found to have engaged in Electioneering, but given only a Written Reprimand).

Pacheco is asking that (Judge) O'Donnell order Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk Dean Logan to reject Napolitano’s paperwork and order Napolitano’s title on the ballot be changed to reflect the true scope of his duties as a field deputy in Knabe’s Torrance office, one of several offices the supervisor maintains throughout the district. Although named as a defendant Logan will not render opposition in court.

Mayor Sam Exclusive: Say Hey!! Is Kevin James Pondering a CD 12 Campaign?
As the sun rises on the latest incarnation of Monday, we focus our cyber attention on speculation regarding a former Talk Show Host, turned paid Political Appointee, with aspirations for Elective Office (allegedly).
In the last couple of weeks, the chatter has increased of a possible Campaign for City Council by former Radio Talk Show Host, now Mayor Eric Garcetti-appointed Board of Public Works President Kevin James ........,, but not in CD 5 (James current home Council District).
According to multiple sources, James is strongly considering establishing Domicile in CD 12, if the current "Councilmember/
The Western San Fernando Valley Council District was a stronghold of support for James during his Third Place Campaign for Mayor in 2013 ..........., and with James Endorsement, was a vital voting enclave that enable, now Mayor Garcetti to beat Wendy Greuel in the 2013 Mayoral Runoff.
But since James populist outsider, reformist Mayoral Campaign of 2013, the perception of many local activists of the now Board of Public Work President, is best exampled by the comments of former LA Daily News Editor and Civic Activist Ron Kaye in a LA Times Missive regarding James
"Kevin has joined the system," said Ron Kaye, former editor of the Los Angeles Daily News. "It's distressing to see someone who knows better buying into the idea that we have to protect the system from reform.".
Yet, the now-supposed City Hall Insider, has been "front and center" in his Board of Public Works Presidential capacity, during the on-going Porter Ranch Gas Leak Crisis, which may pay political dividends (or not) in a speculative CD 12 Campaign.
Its also apparent from a recent telephone poll in the 39th Assembly District, that the political clout of James is also on the mind of a certain political entity, as potential voters were asked to grade the likes of 39th AD Challenger Raul Bocanegra ......., and James (who endorsed Bocanegra's fellow Northeast San Fernando Valley Democratic Machine Member CD 6 City Councilwoman Nury Martinez for Election as pictured below).

COMMUNITY ALERT!! "Son of Fabian (Nunez)" to be Freed from Prison
The son of former Assembly Speaker Fabian Núñez whose conviction in the death of a college student was commuted by Arnold Schwarzenegger will soon be a free man. The parents of victim Luis Santos, who was stabbed to death in a 2008 fight on the San Diego State University campus involving Esteban Núñez and others, said this week that they have been notified of his impending release.The pair spoke Thursday at a victim’s rights rally in the state capital where they told CBS Sacramento it would happen within a week. Nunez pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter for his part in the brawl and was sentenced in 2010 to 16 years in prison. But the following year, then-Governor Schwarzenegger commuted the sentence to just seven years saying that Nunez, whose father was a political ally, had no prior criminal record and that the sentence was excessive. When asked if his ruling had anything to do with his relationship with Núñez , Schwarzenegger was later quoted as saying “Well, hello! I mean, of course you help a friend.”

Noting the Passing of former CD 11 City Councilman Bill Rosendahl at 70
Rosendahl died early Wednesday morning at his home in Mar Vista, surrounded by friends and family, after a four-year battle with cancer, according to a statement by David Graham-Caso, communications director for City Councilman Mike Bonin. Rosendahl was diagnosed in 2012 with cancer of the ureter, the tube that connects the kidney to the bladder. The disease went into remission in 2013, but it reappeared in 2014. His loved ones were told by doctors in January that Rosendahl could pass away "any day,” Graham-Caso said, so for the last three months, they have been visiting his home, holding something of “an amazing living wake." Rosendahl is survived by his longtime partner, book publisher Hedi El Kholti.
A tireless, selfless Progressive, Rosendahl was a sincere persona who in the middle of his battle with cancer, still placed paramount the concerns of those who he could help, above self. Our bloggin memory of Councilman Rosendahl will include his befriending of our former Mayor Sam Blogger David "Zuma Dogg" Saltzberg, as exampled in the photo above.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Rosendahl Family and Friends as Angelinos join in remembering a Selfless Man of Character.

Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Tuesday
What is the difference between Richard Alarcón and Rod Wright? Alarcon is Hispanic and he’s been vindicated. Wright is Black and he hasn’t. I asked Wright: what are you going to do? He said his appeal was filed with the Second District Court of Appeals last spring and he said he and his attorney are waiting for oral arguments to be scheduled. In light of Alarcón’s acquittal, that district attorney thing we have issued a statement to the effect that her office is “reviewing the court’s opinion and deciding on other options.”
In Betty's opinion ........, Exonerating Corrupt Black Politicos Matters.
In a nutshell, here’s what you need to know about Schwartz: He’s thoughtful, intelligent and running out of a true desire to help a city that sometimes feels like it’s melting into an economically ravaged, homelessness-plagued sludge. He’s no gadfly and the campaign for this married father of three is serious. He genuinely appears to care far more about the state of Los Angeles than the personal power the mayor’s office affords. At the same time, Schwartz seems shockingly out of his league, with a platform and a race strategy that are as wobbly as a plate of Clifton’s Jell-O. Granted his candidacy is in its infancy, but more than anything he seems to be banking on riding a populist swell against politics as usual. He repeatedly criticized Garcetti and cited Los Angeles’ myriad problems and weaknesses, but was unable to articulate what he personally has done that qualifies him to run a city of 4 million people.
In layman's terms, its about being a candidate speed bump to slow Mayor Gar-SOFT-ee's Sacramento ambitions.
