Its Official!! Lets the 2017 Runoff Cedillo Campaign Commences ......

ITS OFFICIAL!! The FINAL tally of ballots via Council District One (CD-1) voters, have Incumbent City Councilman Gil (now "Runoff Cedillo") facing Second Place Challenger Joe Bray-Ali in a May General Election (with the help of Giovanni Hernandez, Jesse Rosas and a certain "Write-In Candidate").
With the help of Rolando "The Big O(ooops)" Cuevas we present CD-1 City Councilman Gil "Runoff Cedillo".
** Blogger's Notes: Its the early Evening of March 20, 2017 ............ and contrary to earlier remarks, CD-1 City Councilman Gil "Runoff (again) Cedillo", HAS NOT been re-elected to another term as Developer Geoff Palmer's enabling Officeholder. The final tally of the votes had the embattled Incumbent garnering 49.3% of the votes, with NOW, May Runoff Challenger Joe Bray-Ali placing second with 38%, followed by Giovanni Hernandez and Jesse Rosas respectively. While the likes of the LA Times (who endorsed Bray-Ali) is effusive with praise over the March Results, the pending May Runoff may prove victorious again for Cedillo (via his expected monetary advantage), if the "CHIEF OF STAFF" of the Bray-Ali Campaign, is not more inclusive/inviting of those (especially Latinos y Latinas) who can GREATLY help the political upstart defeat Cedillo in May----Scott Johnson. 
Charge "Runoff Cedillo's" Plate of Crow to his pending May Campaign Account.
A Special Message from CD-14 City Councilman Jose Huizar on "Runoff Cedillo's" second consecutive May Election Campaign.

Breaking News!! 34th CA Candidate Arturo Carmona and likely CD 1 Runoff Challenger Joe-Bray-Ali announce "Political Union"

In Breaking News from Highland Park, likely Council District One (CD-1) Runoff Challenger Joe Bray-Ali and 34th Congressional District Candidate Arturo Carmona, have just announced a "Progressive Political Union", that may have mutualistic benefits for each respective Campaigns in Northeast Los Angeles.
 Likely CD-1 Runoff Challenger Joe Bray-Ali.
Top-tier 34th CD Candidate Arturo Carmona.
** Blogger's Notes: Assemblyman Jimmy Gomez, along with embattled CD-1 City Councilman Gil Cedillo, may be the recipient of a "Political Bern", inflicted by the NOW, Progressive Union of upstart Candidates Arturo Carmona and Joe Bray-Ali respectively. The Progressive Duo just announced their new "Progressive Political Union" this afternoon via a video upload. Pending the final count of the remaining CD-1 Ballots on Friday, this "strategic union" could have a profound, mutualistic impact on both campaigns, especially in regards to Grass Roots support on the ground level----Scott Johnson.

A CD-1 Election Pause (?) Update for Monday 3-14-17

With a thousand ballots left to be counted, Incumbent CD-1 City Councilman Gil Cedillo is in SERIOUS danger of facing challenger Joe-Bray-Ali in a May Runoff as the current vote count drops the current Officeholder under the 50%, plus one threshold (49.51%). 
CD 1 City Councilman Gil Cedillo.
** Blogger's Notes: A bloggin, political cliche ..........., EVERY VOTE COUNTS!! With supposedly a thousand ballots left to be counted, CD-1 City Councilman Gil Cedillo and second place Challenger Joe Bray-Ali surely know as of today, that the difference between Outright Victory and a May Runoff will be decided by a SMALL margin, the current tally below.

Joe Bray-Ali 7,288 Votes, 38.14%.
Giovanni Hernandez 1,572 Votes, 8.23%
Jesse Rosas 788 Votes, 4.12%.
With the count of the remaining votes, the Incumbent must overcome an 189 votes margin (plus one) to win re-election outright ..........,PLUS, offset whatever the WRITE-IN Vote total is for Luca Barton.
To be continued on Friday----Scott Johnson.

A CD-1 Election Pause (?) Update

We are on "CD 1 Election Pause (?) Watch" as representatives of Incumbent Councilman Gil "Broken Deal Cedillo", challenger Joe Bray-Ali and other observers converge on the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder Office in Norwalk, to WITNESS the count of unprocessed Absentee, Provisional and WRITE-IN Ballots, that may result in a campaign-continuing, May Runoff.   
Will discerning CD-1 Observers uncover potential Voter Fraud meriting a Formal Investigation? 
** Blogger's Notes: We are on blogging, CD 1 Election Pause (?) Watch as the count of unprocessed Absentee, Provisional and WRITE-IN Ballots commenced this morning at the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder Election Division Office in Norwalk. Currently, the Incumbent CD-1 City Councilman Gil "Broken Deal Cedillo" has an 123 Votes buffer preventing a May Runoff. That stated, the Campaign of challenger Joe Bray-Ali released the following Statement regarding the unprocessed ballots.

The final votes have not been counted in the race in #LACD1. The Clerk’s office still has provisional, vote by mail, and write-in ballots to count. When the final votes are counted by Friday it will be revealed a majority of the district have voiced their discontentment with our current representation. As we await the final tally of votes, I'll continue to reach out to voters, knock on doors, and engage the community.

Normally in close elections, late-arriving Absentee and Provisional Ballots are the focus the affected Campaigns that said, this election is unique because of the POTENTIAL impact of Approved, Write-In Candidate Luca Barton.

Barton in a phone conversation, is confident that he garnered 100-plus Votes and was going to be in attendance at this morning's process of ballots in Norwalk.

Meanwhile, the embattled Incumbent was NONE, too-graceful in his Election Night Comments as noted below.

“The people (less than 5,000 voters) of this district and this city stood up for themselves, they manifested their own future, they made a statement to the city they weren’t going to buy some flippant, trendy, hippy, hipster … agenda,” Cedillo said, in an obvious dig at Bray-Ali. “But they were going to be traditional, they were going to acknowledge their realities, they were going to respect their circumstances and they were going to vote for themselves.”

........, and a MAJORITY, may have responded CHALE CON CEDILLO!! More updates coming----Scott Johnson.

Will unprocessed Absentee, Provisional and WRITE-IN Ballots, help challenger Joe-Bray-Ali breech a 123 Votes Barrier to a May Runoff?

The Morning After ........., Municipal Election Day, 2017 Notes

Its the MORNING AFTER another abysmal voter turnout for LA Municipal Election Day 2017 which saw $10 Million dollars in Special Interest Money defeat Measure S, Mayor Eric "Gar-SOFT-ee" garnering 80% support for a Second Term ..........,,, and CD 1 City Councilman Gil "50.9% Cedillo" awaits a FINAL count of outstanding ballots in seeking to avoid a May Runoff against Joe Bray-Ali. 
 Coming SOON to a SOLD OUT LA Neighborhood. 
** Blogger's Notes: DISCLAI-(YAWN!!)-MER ......... thanks to the LA County Register Record's Election Division SLOOOOOOOW count of the ballots last night, we attempt to multi-task our MORNING AFTER musings, in a SLEEP-DEPRIVED state. That said, its right to keyboard that an abysmal, small (11%) electorate (minus 49.1% of CD 1 voters) did the repeat bidding of the Establishment, in returning the current anointed incumbents to another Term of servicing the Special Interests and deny communal protection in rejecting Measure S. More details below throughout the day----Scott Johnson.

Its ....., LA MUNICIPAL ELECTION DAY 2017!! Zzzzzzz ......

Its Municipal Election Day 2017 as the City Hall Establishment (with Propaganda help from the LA Times) seeks to beat back needed Development/Planning Reform via "YES ON MEASURE S", with a certain "Second Term-seeking MIA Mayor Gar-SOFT-ee" hoping for a resounding Re-election Victory. ** Plus some Election endorsements (or not) on specific Races. 
A corrupting configuration threatens to engulf City Hall.  
Still missing ....... along with current Crime Stats.
** Blogger's Notes: Its a BEAUTIFUL morning to start LA Municipal Election Day 2017 ....., and well, does ANYONE care? In areas such as CD-9, CD-5, CD-7 ......, and especially CD-1, the rebellion against the 200 Spring Street Establishment, could likely continue on to a replay in May. Less likely, would be a Mayoral Campaign Runoff where Second Term-seeking Mayor Eric Gar-SOFT-ee (or was it a 2009 Tony Villar Replay?), was MIA in defending his RECORD (or lack of) in any of the Candidate Debates/Forums. BUT, by far the MOST important item on today's Ballot is Measure S, which the City Hall Establishment (and LA Times), has spent MEGA-money in defeating. As always, we implore EVERYONE register to vote (not by Larry "Nativo" Lopez) ......, to exercise their RIGHT to do so----Scott Johnson.

Notes on the Pre-Municipal Election 2017 Scorecard for Sunday

With two days before Tuesday's Los Angeles Municipal Elections, discerning CD-7 Observers (and Mayor Sam) are QUESTIONING embattled Candidate "Big Oil (and Gas) Monica" Rodriguez's veracity, regarding whether City Council (and supposed NEUTRAL CD-7 Caretaker)  President Herb "Mini Amin" Wesson formally ENDORSED her Campaign. ** Plus notes on "John/Jay Handal", Measure S, CD-5, CD-9, and the latest Mayor's Race Poll 
Los Angeles City Council President Herman "Mini Amin" Wesson.
** Blogger's Notes: With respects, and in remembrance of the late, great LA Times Sports Writer Allan "Mud" Malamud, its time for our "Notes on the Pre-Municipal Elections 2017 Scorecard" as 35 hours and 56 minutes (7:04 PM on Sunday evening) remains before the opening of Polling Places on Tuesday----Scott Johnson. 
** Did HE ......, or did HE not?

** Surveys says Mayor Eric Gar-SOFT-ee 50%, President Donald Trump 53%. Its true that Second Term-seeking MIA Mayor Gar-SOFT-ee, garnered ONLY 50% support of potential voters in a Loyola Marymount University Mayoral Election Poll (with close to 40% undecided) made public late last week ............. while President Donald J. Trump netted a 53% Approval Rating in the latest Rasmussen Survey.

Councilman (and PLUM Committee Chairperson) Huizar + "enabling Friends" = "Yes on Measure S".

If voters needed just ONE (of many) reason to mark "YES on Measure S" on their ballot, they only have to look at the enabling cabal of CD-14 City Councilman (and PLUM Committee Chairperson) Jose Huizar's "FRIENDS" ..........., and the role they play (and get compensated for) in helping Developers garner Approval for community-altering Projects.
"No on Measure S"= continuing RICHES for "Huizar's Friends".
** Blogger's Notes: On this Hump Day (Wednesday) of the week before Election Day, the "Yes on Measure S Campiagn" is "Going Deep" into the "Pay to Develop Fiefdom of CD-14" to highlight one of the MANY reasons for voting "YES on Measure S".

Los Angeles—Today, March 1, The Yes on Measure (S) campaign will hold a press conference with leaders in Boyle Heights to discuss the negative affects of gentrification. The Miami billionaire developers, the Fifteen Group, swooped into Los Angeles in 1998 to transform the Wyvernwood Garden Apartments in Boyle Heights into thousands of luxury housing units. Residence and leaders in the Latino community have been fighting these billionaire developers and the displacement they are threatening, ever since.   Supporters, joining Yes on Measure S include: Leonardo Vilchis, the Executive Director of Union de Vecinosa, leasders from El Comité de la Esperanza and community supporters.
When: Wednesday, March 1 at 11:00amWhere: Mariachi Plaza, Boyle HeightsWho: Yes on Measure S, Leonardo Vilchis, Executive Director of Union de Vecinosa and leaders from El Comité de la Esperanza.

Despite numerous pronouncements from CD-14 City Councilman Jose Huizar regarding his support for the PRESERVATION of the historic Wyvernwood Complex, the blunt reality for the residents is that the DAY is near (especially if Measure S is defeated) for the Fifteen Group's desire to "upscale" their property ........... and BENEFIT the "FRIENDS of Huizar".

Another "Young Statistic" of Los Angeles "Embargoed (by Mayor Garcetti)" Rising Violent Crime Rate

As MIA/Second Term-seeking Mayor Eric "Gar-SOFT-ee" continues his EMBARGO on releasing the most recent Crime Stats, the Ramona Gardens Community mourns the senseless Murder of a Young Man (Jonathan Yanez), who's Death in a Saturday Mid-day (2:30 PM) Drive-by Shooting, is indicative of a continuing RISE in Violent Crimes within Los Angeles.  
Mayor Gar-SOFT-ee's continuing avoidance of Debates/Candidate Forums and the Disclosure of the MOST recent Crime Stats ....... is an Act of Political Cowardice.

Faces of Politico (and Journalistic) Shame as AB-109 Kills another Communal Hero in the Line of Duty

As the City of Whittier and the Greater Thin Blue Line Family grieves the senseless (and preventable) Murder of beloved Officer Keith Boyle, the comments of Officer Boyer's Chief (and close friend) NEED TO prompt a revisiting of supposed Crime Sentencing (Prop 47 and 57)/Incarceration Reforms (AB-109), that are responsible for endangering (not protecting) Californians ....., and those who supported them.
R.I.P. Whittier Police Officer Keith Boyer.
** Blogger's Notes: Mercifully, a tragic week for California's Law Enforcement nears a grieving end as the California Highway Patrol, Alameda County Sheriff and the Whittier Police Department respectively, mourn the tragic lost of an Officer in the Line of Duty. In the former "Golden State Era of California", a super majority of state residences (including Red and Blue Politicos and Media) would stand together in support of the Thin Blue Line Family ......, when death comes too soon. But in the current 21st Century incarnation of a "One Party-ruling, Digressing Rust State on the Pacific", the preventable DEATH of a COMMUNAL HERO, is met with legislated silence (that seeks to deafens a growing, righteous Backlash) .........., and a repugnant "Act of Editorial Admonishment (via the LA Times)" that WRONGFULLY targets a grieving Whittier Police Chief Jeff Piper (and CLOSE friend of deceased Officer Keith Boyle). Bluntly, with ABSOLUTELY no apologies to those pictured below, their support of AB-109, Prop 47 and Prop 57, have created new "Criminal Enterprise (and Danger) Zones," with adverse connotations for the General Populace, and especially those sworn to maintain Law and Order. There is nothing progressive when failed Public Safety Policies are becoming INCREASINGLY responsible for a rising Crime Rate in places such as the City of Los Angeles, that has prompted a certain "Second Term-seeking, MIA Mayor Gar-SOFT-ee" to EMBARGO the release of current (rising) Crime Stats to after the March 7 Elections ........, while giving thanks to those who have served "their Time"----Scott Johnson.

The "Broken Deal Cedillo Backlash Tour" Stop in Lincoln Heights

The second and last 2017 CD 1 City Council Election Debate/Candidate Forum became another stop on the "Broken Deal Cedillo Backlash Tour" as constituents vented their collective frustrations on the inattentive, Second Term-seeking Career Politico. 
Sacred Heart Church Volunteer Robert Vega greets the audience at the Lincoln Heights Chamber of Commerce/Neighborhood Council./Sacred Heart Church CD-1 Candidate Forum. 
** Blogger's Note: Disclaimer (again)!! In the Alternative Reality (maybe) mindset of CD 1 City Councilman Gil "Broken Deal Cedillo", come Sunrise on Wednesday, March 8, 2017, ALL CD-1 Constituents will be represented for another Term (lasting the same length as the Lincoln Park Pool closure) by the former "One Bill Gil (with a Dream)". 
But in bloggin reality (again), the second and last 2017 CD 1 City Council Election Debate/Candidate Forum, became the second and (sadly) last stop on the "Broken Deal Cedillo Backlash Tour" with constituents confronting the current Officeholder with factually-based issues as the challengers (including approved Write-In Candidate Luca Barton) garnering positive audience support (minus the likes of Steve, Vera, Mario and others from the Lincoln Heights Chamber of Commerce).
The capacity crowd gathering was not lacking in theatrics, sub-plot drama in the audience ......., and of course, pants-combusting embellishments (ie, LIES) via "Broken Deal Cedillo" regarding the FIVE city-approved Homeless/Affordable Housing Developments on Public Parking Lots in the community. 
During latter questions provided by audience members, the Councilman was "shown the back", via an elderly female tenant of a Lincoln Heights Apartment Complex, who are facing eviction after enduring alleged "Cash for Keys Intimidation" tactics ........, with no help from their Officeholder.
But more dramatic was the accusation directed at "Broken Deal Cedillo" by former "Voice Newspaper" Publisher/Editor (now Stan's Bike Shop Proprietor) Carlos Morales, that insinuated the former Assemblyman had "Blood on his Hands" for his support of AB-109 Prison Realignment, which is be blamed for putting the Killer of Whittier Police Officer Keith Boyer (who was accorded a "Moment of Silence"via Moderator Hugo Pacheco ) back on the streets.   
We should note that while the fixation of the audience was focus on the candidates, it was hard NOT to notice the presence of CONVICTED Voter Fraud Felon Larry (I Am Patton State Hospital-referred Defendent NATIVO!!) Lopez, who on GOOD source, stated that all the documented allegations about him are "Googled Alternative Facts" ..... but when confronted with a "Googled Fact" about his FELONY CONVICTION for Voter Fraud, was led away by his fellow "Broken Deal Cedillo" associates-----Scott Johnson.

An EXCLUSIVE Forum for the selected few.
** Blogger's Notes: A bloggin question ........ how many local Democratic Clubs does it take to practice "Exclusion (instead of tolerant Inclusion)", in regards to inviting ALL declared 34th Congressional District "D" Candidates to a community forum? See below. But those excluded by their own "Demo Brothers and Sisters" can thank the LA-32 Neighborhood Council for given them an opportunity to be heard (in addition to the candidates for LAUSD School Board District Two)----Scott Johnson.

Breaking (FAKE?) Polling News: Assemblyman Jimmy Gomez enjoys BIG Lead in 34th Congressional District Special Election Campaign (LOL!!)

In Breaking (FAKE) Polling News regarding the upcoming 34th Congressional District Special Election, Assemblyman Jimmy "from Riverside" Gomez enjoys a "Wide Margin of Support" over the rest of the twenty-something Candidates .........., via his Campaign Consultant S(kelton) G & A-commissioned (ie. paid for) Survey of Voters. 
WOW!! I find (errr  paid for) a Poll that gives ME a "Wide Margin of Support".
** Blogger's Notes: LOL!! The following is bloggin priceless, consider its politically-germane to the the California Assembly Member (via Riverside) who wants High School Students indoctrinated on whats constitutes "Fake News".  In REALITY, Establishment Democrat Assemblyman Jimmy Gomez,, who has been anointed the "Designated Candidate" to replace NOW, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra in Congress, should become the "Subject Politico" regarding future legislation pertaining to regulating FAKE POLLING NEWS, that is blatantly crafted to mislead (and solicit donations from) voters. Its obvious from the Gomez Campaign Consultant S G & A-commissioned Survey (posted below), that the Riverside-native is seeking to counter the INDEPENDENT Latino Decisions Poll that had Gomez trailing by double-digits to Progressive Candidate Arturo Carmona.  Further, discerning observers will note that publicizing commissioned Surveys, is a tired S G & A Campaign Tactic which highlights the Client Candidate's strengths ......, while not disclosing any negative findings (note the absence of additional pages of Survey Data). We also find it LAUGHABLE, that the Survey found lone Republican Candidate William Morrison  with MORE SUPPORT than Bernienista Progressive Arturo Carmona, while not even gauging support for the other thirteen official candidates. That stated, the most-telling statistic is the supposed fact is Candidate Gomez's 33% Approval Margin .........., which means that two-thirds of the voters may choose someone else in April, allegedly-----Scott Johnson.

CD-1 Councilman Gil Broken Deal Cedillo at Candidate Forum: "I WILL be your Councilman, again (constituents be damned)"

 In the first CD-1 Candidate Forum (with some debating), a self-assured Incumbent "Broken Deal Cedillo" takes to Phone ........, while a next Generation of Communal Leaders (Joe Bray-Ali and Giovanni Hernandez) CONNECTED with a capacity audience ........., clearly disenchanted with the current Officeholder. 
The Glassell Park Improvement Association (and partners) are to be commended for a well-attended and structured Candidate Forum (with some debating).
** Blogger's Notes: Disclaimer!! In the convoluted mindset of CD-1 City Clowncil Central Committee Member Gil "Broken Deal Cedillo", its a forgone, "ALTERNATIVE FACT", that come July 1, 2017, the former "One Bill Gil (with a Dream)" will again be granted another Term (Five-plus years) of Public Employment. 
But in bloggin reality, judging from the capacity crowd at last evening's Glassell Park Improvement Association's CD 1 Candidate Forum, the current Officeholder is clearly suffering from a narcissus-induce, nearly four year (and counting) episode of Political Myopia, that has blinded him from the REAL state of discontent among constituents.
For two hours, "Broken Deal Cedillo" was openly BOTHERED in having to defend his supposed record of accomplishments to a dismissive (and at multiple times, heckling) audience, as challengers Giovanni Hernandez, Jesse Rosas and Joe Bray-Ali, garnered sustained applause. 
At one point, "Broken Deal Cedillo" rudely disregard protocols by engaging in a phone conversation that prompted speculation that he was perturbed at the LACK of crowd support and was seeking the arrival of friendly seat-fillers (in a venue at capacity).  
On the subject of forum questions, most of the audience-submitted questions focus on Quality of Life Issues (Development, Affordable Housing, Homeless, Education) along with district-germane topics dealing with Bike Lanes, Open Space ......., and the lack of TRUST in the Officeholder.  
That stated, what many in the audience will remember was the Incumbent's dismissive disdain of his constituents, in espousing the coming formality of being anointed another Term in office ........, which may become a challenged, ALTERNATIVE FACT on Election Day----Scott Johnson. 
Did "Broken Deal Cedillo" phone Convicted Voter Fraud Felon Larry "Nativo" Lopez to provide more "Register Voters" during CD 1 Candidate Forum?

Mayor Sam Exclusive: Councilman Cedillo's Bridewell Armory Emergency Shelter Scam

In a Mayor Sam Exclusive, we disclose the SCAM that was CD 1 City Councilman Gil "Broken Deal Cedillo's" (and Council-approved) Bridewell Armory Winter Emergency Shelter Motion, as a potentially, strong series of Storms targets Southern California ........, with adverse impacts on Northeast LA's Homeless (and General) Population. 
Another Broken Deal Cedillo Episode, with potentially adverse Public Safety connotations..
The still-shuddered CD-14 Bridewell Armory.
** Blogger's Notes: In a Mayor Sam Exclusive, we disclose the SCAM that was the supposed, CD 1 City Councilman Gil "Broken Deal Cedillo's" approved Motion that would have directed the City of Los Angeles Recreation & Parks Department (along with other pertinent city agencies) to make the CD-14-located Bridewell Armory available as an Emergency Winter Shelter. As the photos below document, the longtime shuddered (with supposed plans to become a Non-Profit Arts Center), does not look ready (as directed) for any type (including Emergency) usage ........., with a POTENT Winter Storm taking aim at Southern California on Friday. The incoming storm is bound to impact all segments of the populations, especially the Homeless who live near the Northeast LA Arroyo Seco Waterway, which will swell full of runoff from the saturated San Gabriel Mountains. Its inexcusable (and politically contemptible if a certain CD-14 Officeholder is obstructing, again) that a City Council-approved Motion/Directive (with serious Public Safety ramifications) has not been implemented .........., and for what reasons? That is the responsibility of the Motion's "Author (aka. Broken Deal Cedillo) to explain to discerning/pending voters----Scott Johnson.

CD-7 City Council Candidate Monica Rodriguez's CONTINUING Lack of Ethical Campaigning

Its apparent that repeat CD-7 City Council Candidate Monica Rodriguez has learn little about Ethical Campaigning, as alleged, multiple violations of Ethics Commission Rules regarding the use of City of Los Angeles Equipment and Official Seals, are made public via her Campaign Mailers.  
Use of City of Los Angeles Property and Official Seals is a Ethical Violation.
** Blogger's Notes: Please join in this bloggin flashback to a April 14, 2009 Ethics Commission Press Release pertaining in part, to a $9,045 Fine levied against a THEN, an alleged Republican/Business Democrat Female's unsuccessful Campaign against the infamous former CD7/2 City Councilman Richard AlarCON.

In a seventh case, the Commission levied a $9,045 fine against 2007 City Council candidate Monica Rodriguez and her committee, “Monica Rodriguez for City Council,” for 32 counts of soliciting or accepting contributions prior to filing a Declaration of Intent to Solicit and Receive Contributions in violation of Charter Section 470(c)(1), and for five counts of filing (did they mean "failing"?) to file copies of scripts or recordings related to recorded telephone calls made by her campaign in violation of LAMC Section 49.7.26(E)

In 2017, the now "Fresh Face" of the infamous (and litigious) Northeast San Fernando Valley Democratic Machine (with endorsed approval of Mayor Eric Garcetti), is AGAIN the focus of allegations that her NOW, Establishment-anointed Campaign, is showcasing contempt for Ethics Rules that prohibit the use of city-owned property and official seals, in voter-outreach material.
