Hahn Should Return the Money

Today we learned how a possible Villar administration would operate if Mayor.

Take full responsibility of it's actions.

Tony Villar and crew have returned $47,000 dollars in campaign contributions out of an abundance of caution.

It took 1 day for the Villar campaign to take responsibility for its actions -- Hahn has yet to take responsibility for anything.

The same folks that Hahn is getting traction over gave him money in 2001 and 2002 -- Villar gave the money back -- Hahn should do the same.

In fact, I think a good scrubbing of all the folks that have received no-bid contracts during Hahn's tenure and have given money to any Hahn account should be returned as well. In fact, everyone being investigated by the DA, Grand Jury or the FBI should have their money returned. Everyone indicted should have their money returned by the Hahn campaign as should folks that live in Venuatu that have have donated to the Hahn campaign.

It took Villar one day to take responsibility for his actions --- Hahn has never taken responsibilty for his -- which is a main reason I want Hahn Gone.

Hahn is going down as quite possibly the worst mayor in LA history.

Didn't you read the Steve Lopez article. You can't spin this one Chief Parke Skelton. "Hahn should return the money" - aren't all those investigations that have found no wrong doing significant abundance of caution. Your pissing in the wind here.

I think the key word is "yet"

Today's LA Times Editorial: (snippets)

...(c) "I don't know that anybody's shown that anybody's done anything wrong yet..."

...Mayor James K. Hahn, who specializes in calling the kettle black, wasted no time in asking the city Ethics Commission to look into the Villaraigosa contributions. The mayor's response to questions about criminal investigations into his own administration's fundraising and contracting practices, by the way, was "c." Memo to his campaign staff: It would probably sound better if he dropped the "yet."

No wrong doing was found in the money Villar gave up -- yet his abundance of caution tells him to give it back -- Hahn's abundance of caution has him using the word "yet."

Its dumb vs cautious.

Cautious wins everyday.

The "deed: isn't UNDONE until ADV also takes BACK the vote he tried to give PLAY for the pay! On the concessions contracts. HE tried to make HAHN look dirty while he was working his OWN side deal with the Fla. contributors.

Is he walking into Council today (if he goes) and asking for a reconsideration vote? Is he demanding that his vote be reversed or corrected?

WE DEMAND AN INVESTIGATION! What did he promise for the money BEFORE he got caught red-handed!

He can return the PAY, and just end up a dumb, poor crooked pol.

Does that make him better?

What's that new slogan for ADV?

"I'm JUST as 'corrupt' as I said Hahn was 4 years ago, but I got nothing out if it (because I got caught...)"

Elect me the STUPID, corrupt pol!

ADV SHOULD RETURN HIS PAYCHECKS for 2003-2005. He didn't earn them.

I'll bet they total WAY more than any quetionable contributions to Hahn.

Five times as much; 10 times as much?

The campaign money doesn't come out of MY pocket. ADV's stolen paycheck DO!

Maybe Hahn should give back the money. With the Daily Breeze, Channel 62 and Steve Lopez doing his work for him, how much money does he actually need.

Chief Parker, the key word is not "yet" - it is "perception". In politics there is only perception. That was Tony's mantra to take out Pacheco - who by the way is still walking free with not even a hint of indictments. And perceptions of Hahn is what Tony sought to deceive the voting public. What's the perception on Tony now?

Hahn using this is not smart.

Obviously the bloggers like it -- but their intelligence was never a factor - heck they keep coming back to debate me everyday and look like idiots.

Also it is unfortunate that the Hahn campaign has a staffer whose primary function is to blog on the site.

Go call voters -- leave this site alone!

Hahn using this is not smart?! Oh yeah, it's really dumb. You always ask us for proof, were's your proof on the Hahn staffer. If you don't have any, will you delete your post. And people on this blog aren't exactly debating you. To have a debate you need at least two brains, yours' has been interred for several decades.

And it doesn't take much to post on this blog. I'm volunteering for Hahn, in between my last two posts I just got another 15 voters for Hahn, five lovely seniors from Boyle Heights who were going to vote for Tony. Their absentee ballots - the ones Tony provided - are now on the way, voting for Hahn.

"Hahn using this is not SMART?"

What a laugh.

ADV using corruption as a bat against Hahn WHILE simultaneously cutting deals to vote FOR contributors' actions in city council AND help them out once he's mayor is the stupid move.


Hahn is being lawyerly.

Does anyone ACTUALLY believe that the Florida money, followed the SAME week in City Council by ADV tantrum about concessions contracts were not TEXTBOOK pay-for-play?

PLEASE! Piss down my leg, but don't tell me it's RAIN!

Antonio Villaraigosa (TONY VILLAR) is corrupt along with his corrupt minded crew. Crew? what are you speaking of, crew? Is it the VIGNALI, MERUELO crew?

"Take full responsiblity of it's actions."

The answer is: FALSE

Out of mere pressure from the people he is returning and he is praying the ethics commission does not look into this any further, he's hoping that with the return of the money it will just GO AWAY!

There is another that won't GO AWAY- THE VIGNALI CASE is going to do further damage by exposing the REAL ADV. ADV hides behind a fake candidacy and his corruption will only get worse.

VIGNALI case implicates Villaraigosa, Clinton's & Hugh Rodham, Roger Clinton (Vignali client), and many other local politicians from Gloria Molina, Becerra. Kerry is just here to make sure this all better GO AWAY! He is going to try and distract the voters away from VIGNALI, he is doing his own damage control for the sake of the Clintons. ADV+VIGNALI local corrupt individuals and don't underestimate Richard Meruelo, that is an entire different mess all together.

What were LAUSD officials doing, asleep on the job, why couldn't they see this coming? Or are they in cahoots with ADV-Huizar, just look into Huizar...it's CORRUPTION.

James Kenneth Hahn needs to return the illict and fraudulent funds received from all these nefarious characters. The wages of sin will sink his ship. Antonio has the good sense to return funds that appear to be in question. He has done the honorable and wise thing.

Problem is, James Kenneth doesn't have the funds to send back to the donors.

On May 5 ("Cinco de Mayo", a wonderful Holiday for those Americans of Mexican descent) Hahn will not be celebrating.

His total lack of funding will be revealed for all to see on or before 5:00 P.M..

The resumes are quietly circulating all around Los Angeles; Room 300 will be empty by May 17th, except for McOsker and Hahn, and their errand boy, Doane Liu. They can remain employed unti July 1, then take a nice holiday and start looking for someone to hook up with. How about Fleishman-Hillard?

Sic Transit Gloria...
