Outsourced Campaigns, Part Deux

The other day, we outed Dennis Zine for having his campaign headquarters outside the 3rd District and City of Los Angeles. Here are a few more, according to LA Ethics Commission filings.
Alarcon for Los Angeles (ID:1263790)
601 S. Glenoaks Blvd., Suite 211
Burbank, CA 91502

Committee to Re-Elect Ed P. Reyes (ID:1260028)
601 S. Glenoaks Blvd., Suite 211
Burbank, CA 91502

Committee to Re-Elect Jack Weiss (ID:1259382)
1769 Fallen Leaf Lane
Lincoln, CA 95648

Now before you go and think that Alarcon, Reyes and Zine are shacking up, you should know that this is the address of their campaign consultant, Kinde Durkee. However something like 98% of the candidates running - including Poopy, Hugsberg, Bitter Bernie, Tony Villar, et al - managed to find consultants actually based in the City.

Let alone Jack Weiss who seems to have not only gone out of the city but off to the Sacramento area to find his campaign hacks.

The fact that you had to explain to people why the addresses differ from that of actual campaign offices is FRIGHTENING considering the audience reading this blog. Not surprising though. Most city hall staffers think they are campaign experts but in reality have no clue.

Kinde Durkee and Associates are Treasurer's not Campaign Consultants.

Yup. Most Fourth Floorers are reading to see if their name comes up. However, they're not posting because Mayor Sam has yet to run a "Who's the hottest staffer at City Hall contest."

Another clarification: Parks' campaign manager, Carol Butler is from out of town and has run U.S. Senate races in Michigan, Oregon and Texas. She joins Parks' D.C.-based consultants Chris Lehane (the former adviser to John Kerry and Wesley Clark) and No. Cal-based Eric Jaye, who had been a campaign strategist for San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom.

Check the facts before attacking.

So Bitter Bernie is outsourcing too. Hell, why doesn't he just bring in Carville???

How sad that Bitter Bernie need OUTSIDERS to tell him how to campaign HERE in Los Angeles. I doubt if any of these knuckleheads know anything about Los Angeles. Did you see the celebrity list Bernie came out today in LA Times? Funny, I'm sure his District 8 constiuents can relate to these African Americans with money. Get a grip Bernie. Think like the people you're suppose to represent and put the Hollywood stuff away.

Didn't Bernie learn anything from Kerry parading all the Hollywood A-listers? No one cared.
