Hahn attacks, IATSE endorses
Because today is Good Friday Jim Hahn attacked Antonio Villaraigosa. Hahn attacked Villaraigosa for telling valley voters one thing and South LA voters another -- not during this campaign, but in 2001.
Since Jim Hahn's office doesn't e-mail us, although all are welcome too (firstname.lastname@example.org) we can only paraphrase what the attack was. Essentially Hahn's folks had footage of Antonio telling South LA voters he'd support Parks, and Valley Voters he'd reevaluate him.
The Hahn campaign never released the entire clip, just the snippets they wanted the media to see. Most media outlets covered this race in 2001 and know that Antonio gave very nuanced detailed answer regarding this issue throughout the campaign, if the Hahn campaign had released the entire transcript you'd note that in fact Antonio Villaraigosa was consistent in every answer.
Chief Parker remembers Hahn telling voters he'd keep Parks, he'd tell them till he was blue in the face, Hahn did not keep is word. Hahn flipped, then flopped.
Last night channel 9 called the Antonio campaign "Rolling Thunder" and commented on the endorsements coming in waves, well another wave crashed today.
IATSE is a member of the county-fed, the county-fed endorsed Hahn. Today IATSE broke away from the county-fed to endorse Antonio Villaraigosa.
So in 2 days Antonio gets the endorsement of a prominent south Los Angeles elected official and an organization that represents valley voters.
The most ironic part of the endorsement is, didn't Hahn come out with a plan against run-away production and it was written to appease IATSE members? I suppose when you have an administration as corrupt as Hahn's and a campaign that can't even get endorsements right why would anyone with a brain help or vote for Jim Hahn?
Questions that boggle the mind.
