Where is Charles Fitzgerald? Day One

Before I reveal where Charles Fitzgerald is, let's take a look at the type of man Charles is.

Charles Fitzgerald along with his partner Alan Abrams developed a scheme in which their companies would vastly overvalue loans statewide. 84 to be exact.

How did they allegedly pull it off?

Through forgery, identity theft and misrepresentation.

These forgeries, identity thefts and misrepresentations are also outlined in the $140 million dollar Lehman Bros suit against them.

Back in June 2003 KCAL did an investigation on Charles Fitzgerald and Abrams.

They were also spending money on questionable campaign contributions.
Abrams was a contributor to Mayor Hahn, according to the mayor's office -- enough to get a picture with the mayor inscribing on it, "Mark -- thanks for always being there supporting our beloved city. You're the greatest."

But behind the scenes, Abrams allegedly instructed his employees and their friends to donate to the mayor's campaign and others. And then he would reimburse them, sometimes in cash. "It was either a $500 or $1,000 check (that) we got back," Matthew Compton says.

That's illegal according to Robert Stern of the Center for Governmental Studies. "This is the ultimate sin in campaign financing."

But our investigation found at least seven instances of contributions from people who claim they were reimbursed or their check was forged. And insiders say there may be more...

...Since the Lehman lawsuit was filed, Fitzgerald, his wife and children have fled the country. Court documents reveal they've "moved to an island in the South Pacific where there are no extradition treaties."

Chief Parker knows where they are -- they live in the country of Vanuatu. Because there is no extradition process in this country - the FBI, the DA and the 2 grand juries are unable to question this felon on the run. Charles Fitzgerald is living on an Atoll in Vanuatu. There is only one on this set of islands.

The man who contributed over $70,000 dollars to James K Hahn Independent expenditures, the one man that can clear up all the innuendo and rumors, sits in a country known for harboring the worlds felons and tax cheats, he sits there buying his time. Waiting, patiently for his next order --- perhaps with all the extra time he has in this country that doesn't have a US ambassador or an extradition treaty with the US, perhaps he can erase from his memory all the criminal activities he did to investors, the real facts regarding the $140 million dollar lawsuit against him, and the truth behind James K Hahn and whether or not our mayor is a criminal.

Ace? You are making yourself look worse and worse with your bag of dysfunctional tricks.

This goes to show how desperate Villaraigosa is getting...This story smells as if you are reaching for innuendos, again innuendos, that is all you know how to do.

Villaraigosa is a socialist, that is a FACT not an innuendo!

Thee you go again. Don't you know a person is innocent untl proven guilty?

Except for Antonio, that is, who has raped, murdered, performed drive-by shootings, stolen, lied, cheated, drawn a salary he doesn't deserve and generally swindled his entire district for two years.

The amazing thing to me is that only a few bloggers know this secret and his district still votes 3 to 1 for him.

Is it true that he has slept with every woman in the district and that he gives the funds to them and other districts rather than finish a doggy park?

Somebody tell these Morons in CD 14 that it is the M-A-Y-O-R that controls the police and the funds, not the Councilman.

I'm getting tired of their rants, myself.

Why no post about the guy who popped $60K into a VILLARAIGOSA IE fund about the same time he stole the Taylor Yard property out from under the LAUSD's dysfunctional nose... ready to sell it back for MILLIONS in profits. That's more current and in line with what's going on in the mayor's race. Lets talk 2005 multi-million dollar scam jobs (ADV staff called this a "minor setback" that the school property was stolen by HIS supporter.

SO, why does ADV suddenly want control of LAUSD? It's NOT because he's copycatting Hahn again (that's what he and his RICO buddies want you to think, though...) It's so HE can get HIS share of this graft, instead of having to keep settling for wetting his beak through intermediaries like the school-land speculator.

Now you ALSO know why does ADV want one of the same LAUSD flunkies who let this theft go by (made it happen?) to take his place in CD14. Covering tracks, working in collusion, making sure future deals are MUCH more lucrative.

How about some UP-To-DATE graft, ADV-lovers. Don't you just LOVE how your little boy and his buddies are SCREWING more LAUSD kids than Michael Jackson could ever DREAM of?

YEAH, baby.. if ADV's hacks think people are going to get pissed about some supposed Hahn cronie doing dirty deeds two years ago, what the heck are they going to do when it starts heating up about the school property.

Those multi-millions his cronie makes off the school site at Taylor Yard could buy a TON of school supplies.

Boy oh boy, Antonio, you can neglect those Latino Eastside families six-ways from Sunday -- and they'll keep looking the other way because of your surname and pretty smile. But you start stealing from their children's future, and you are one finished MECHA-boy!

WHERE have you been Chief Parker, I thought it was Mayor Sam who took a breather. This has been on the BLOG 50 times already.

ADV's staff already commented on it -- (quick to point out... "well he (stolen property) is NOT really in my district." Yeah, it's a couple hudnred yards away, but the $60K in that IE fund IS for him! And the guys he's grooming for new CM was to tog Dog on school board when the deal went down!

BIG TIME schoolyard screwing around on the Eastside.

His supporters have been backpeddling all over Mount Washington. WELL< we'll ASK him!?!?


Well, HE can't control who puts funds into and IE to help him (OH, but Hahn CAN?)

Turn down that fan, CP, the Ca Ca is heading in REAL fast!

Not a very savvy businessman is ADV, getting only $60K as his cut from screwing LAUSD out of multi-millions.

Now he MAY try to rush in as the hero last minute, if this thing starts looking too dicey, and people catch on to the scam. Then he and his buddies are ONLY responsible for the massive legal fees it'll take to try and eminent domain this site back into the city's control.

If that even works. If not, then it's a caboose-load (Taylor Yard, trains, get it?) of legal fees and NO property back to the district.

You name it ANY way it goes the taxpayers and the kids are screwed on this, and worst case, no new high school at all there (and that was the ONLY good place anyone could find for one within miles).

Meanwhile, every other nearby HS is running at 130 percent of student capacity. Taylor Yard was ONLY going to bring the area back near capacity, and solve the overcrowding for 2-3 years.

Pick your grifter -- but please don't say "we have no choice but to support ADV" (Mayor Sam), it's starting to sound like you're trying to convince yourself more than the rest of us!

Huizar now has Belmont, Taylor Yard and a $200,000 toilet under his belt. What kind of political future do you have in store? You were warned about getting into bed with Tony - eastside activists won't forget. And after Tony gets trounced on May 17th, don't count on Parke Skelton to bail you out, he's done for in the eastside. But don't worry Parke, you still have Cindy in San Fernando, as soon as she gets her college degree she'll carry your load, ha ha ha.

So, one day after he calls Hahn's suggestion that the mayor have some control over schools "a gimmick" -- Attention-Deficit Villaraigosa tries to trump that gimmick with a BIGGER gimmick of his own (but, conveniently, one MUCH less likely to ever go anywhere but into ADV®'s huge list of broken promises and vague plans).

Meanwhile, he's winking an aside to his supporters like the teacher's unions that says "don't worry, I'm just playing this up for the yokels. I don't mean a word of it!"

The good thing about it is, you can tell that EVEN the ADV®-puffing L.A. Times is starting to "get it." Their coverage of this, follows immediately with the line that ALWAYS follows ADV® proposals in the newspaper now (and I mean EVERY time... they all know it by heart): "Hahn's rival DID NOT OFFER ANY SPECIFICS of his proposal."

What specifics? He hasn't spent 60 seconds thinking about it. Why bother - he has no plans to ever DO anything about it (DOing is too time-consuming, and gets in the way of "promising" -- which is much more profitable politically. And so, even the Times' now understands - it's just "sweet talk" for the ADV® groupies!

They should come up with shorthand, to save space -- Villaraigosa did not offer specifics = (VDNOS), and just add that into every story. ADV® said "I promise you dis, dat, and the udder ting" (VDNOS).

OH, and when IS that GREAT new state-of-the-art Eastside high school opening up on the Taylor Yard parcel, just a stone's throw down the southwestern slope of Mt. Washington from ADV® manor?

ADV may be the one inquiring now, himself, SN. Because, just maybe his (um) "tax deductions?" (being careful, don't want to upset Chief Parker), will now have to attend public school's in L.A.

Thanks to Boi from Troy, who reprinted portions of the new Pope's stands, we now know that:

"Catholics may never support abortion or euthanasia."

SO, pretty much all liberal democrats have to stop being "Catholics" now. Tough love, ADV.

Pump up the old, unproven, innuendo-based claims against Hahn all you want, but in the end, it comes down to this:

(ADV paraphrasing Groucho Marx -- not the Marx he usually looks to for guidance, but appropriate here):

"The last guy nearly ruined this place. He'd didn't know what to do with it. If you think this city's bad off NOW. Just wait 'til I get through with it!"

(It's better "sung" than blogged!)
