Desperate Acts of a Desperate Man - Hahn Slings Mud
So forget the previous post about Poopy not being able to punch. He came out swinging today, the gloves are off, and the mud is flying!
Hahn lit up the press with a blistering attack on both Antonio and Huggy regarding Enron. He waited for the LA Times to scoop the story, since evidentially Linda "ball-breaker" Breakstone wouldn't carry their water fast enough. Her mud will probably run tonight with the same letters Hahn distributed today. (FYI: Breakstone had this story last week). Hahn did manage to deliver his diatribe regarding their alleged "unethical actions" and keep a straight face, ignoring his own ethical issues. (That in and of itself should have earned him an Oscar).
This prompted Huggy to hold his own event this afternoon swinging right back in defense, and pointing out the Hahn himself also took Enron contributions. Difference: Hahn still has his. Huggy returned it.
Carrick has also been overheard touting a negative hit ad coming out in the near future along with an "attack a day" for the next 7 days.
To use Hahn's line from yesterday in his description of Huggy, "Desperate acts of a desperate man." When all else fails and you are dumping in the polls, take em down with you and spread your crap elsewhere.
Personally I agree with Mack Reed over at LA Voice: "when it comes to what he's actually done for Los Angeles, Hahn's just a lazy dull, pandering hack politician who can't seem to grasp that he's holding the reins of one of the world's great cities limply in his hands and giving them a weak little shake only when it looks as though his re-election might be in jeopardy."
