Enough of Walter for now (and for good), here is some MEAT for all you ABADV fans out there. Turns out that Tony Villar is looking for a few friends to raise his dough, now that the Hahnista attack dog independent expenditure committees have blown the roof off how much Poopy can spend. In order to raise a little more ammunition for the Villar arsenal out there, Parke Skelton is trying something new. Here is a condensed version of an email Parke sent out.

From: "Parke Skelton, Villaraigosa for Mayor
Subject: Become one of Antonio's Friendraisers today!
The caps are off. And so are the gloves.
Due to more than $200,000 in planned "independent
expenditures" by groups supporting Jim Hahn, the
$2.251 million spending cap for each candidate in the
mayor's race has been lifted. That means that our
campaign is going to have to raise even more money.
Antonio can raise enough money to compete. But he's
not going to do it from just a handful of large donors
-- he's going to do it in $10, $25, and $50 donations
from friends and supporters all across Los Angeles.
That's where you come in. Today we're pleased to
announce the launch of our new "Friendraisers" program.
Sign up just 10 new supporters and raise just $200
from your friends & family for Antonio's campaign, and
you'll be invited to a special reception for our
Blog away dums dums.
