Sleazy Phone Calls

So today we read in the LA Times that Mayor Poopy's campaign are using phone bank volunteers to attack Tony Villar.

Weird thing, aren't all of those scripts suppose to be reported to the Ethics Commission? Yes.

Is it? Of course not.

Nothing new, more scandal, more unethical treatment.

This is what the Times says...One, targeted to Republicans, questions his former leadership of the region's American Civil Liberties Union chapter.

THE WORD "ATTACK" IS USED BY JESSICA VILLAGARRISON. She's the CD14 groupie of Antonio. She's the one who interviewed CD14 constituents but didn't like what they had to say and never did the story on it.

She used "attacked" in her story. she doesn't like when people say the truth about her lover boy Antonio. I say it's called telling the truth about Antonio's record on the ACLU, his voting against gang injunctions, his flip flopping on the child abuse AB2258 bill, his being a "do nothing councilman in C14." Amazing how this website is so twisted.

Boy Chief Parke, you're really reaching now. Tony is slipping badly, he is looking like a fool on television, all those years of drug abuse is the reason he has all those brain farts. And you are now complaining about phone bankers?! I wonder if Tony submitted his phone raps, the ones that say "Vote for Antonio, if you are Latino we need to Vote for Antonio....Make history, vote for the first Latino mayor in 130 years...Don't be intimidated or misled by those gringos, you know how they are, vote for one of our own, Antonio." I know of several people that have already recorded these conversations. How about you Chief, do you got any recordings?

Did you guys see Tony along with his napoleonic complexed supporter - Tony Cardenas - at Birmingham High today? Tony was trying to explain his vote. It went something like this "I uuuuuhhhhh voted for the uuuhhhhhhh bill in the uhhhhh f-f-fiscal committee uhhh that has to uhhhh do uhhh with money" - still getting distracted by those little high school girls, huh Tony. What the hell were you trying to say? The students were trying everything to keep from bursting out laughing. Is this your defense now Parke, "I voted for it before I voted against it" - and that worked so well for Kerry. And little shit Tony Cardenas standing by your side giving you all that support - it wasn't long ago that Cardenas was crying that Tony V. stabbed him in the back when he came up short - pun intended - in his run for Speaker.

Proof of Southwest Voter Registration Education Project's working as a field organization for the Villaraigosa Campaign, in violation of it's 501(c)3 non-profit status and violating the reporting requirements for all Independent Expenditure Campaigns:

""While SVREP does not support candidates or political parties, according to our analysis, if the Latino vote would have been hyper mobilized and turned out at a rate of 63.2%, more than 199.759 Latino would have voted. Assuming the rate of Latinos voting for Villaraigosa remains constant at 82% he would have received an additional 51,679 Latino votes. This scenario, more simply expressed as Latinos comprising 32% of all votes cast, would have led to victory for Villaraigosa."

So, AFTER Hahn gets his mid-day time on ESPN, when every sports fan in L.A. is keyed in for NBA stats, he get ANOTHER 30 minutes of free Hahn informercial, again on KABC during the after dinner hours on Friday when everyone driving to their parties, and other Friday p.m. activities.

After giving Hahn open air to tell repeatedly how ADV is lying about the child-killer bill, lying about Hahn being MIA from educational issues, and SUDDENLY turning tail on the MECHA organization, Host Al Rantel (so popular they give him a morning and evening show) then goes off on Hahn. Somewhat apologetically, but he says the Hahn campaign is NOT BEING HARD ENOUGH on ADV. He needs to DROP MORE BOMBS, and really expose ADV's record.

ADV needs to be exposed because - if people KNEW HIM, they would vote against him more!

Then he tells the audience that ADV is AFRAID to tell people who he is and THAT's why he's hiding -- won't come on AL's (or anyone's show).

Then the host practically begs his listeners, and especially the Valley, to turn out and vote in Tues.

Not only "can't be trusted" now ADV's AFRAID. The guy who wants to be mayor of Los Angeles, the city of ANYTHING but angels is AFRAID.

7:28 p.m., you obviously couldn't even find CD14 on the map. Other than Huizar, none of the people you name could break single digits.

Pacheco is a top runner, if he wants it... Cedillo might get some numbers, but he's got a job now. None of the NC leaders has any pull outside their own little fiefdom. One that NOBODY mentions, but who could get traction if Pacheco doesn't go for it is actually one of his ex-staffers - Liberty Mesa. She is universally respected as a hard charger - ran his Northeast office, and has worked for other CMs since.

After a slew of men, none leaving without baggage - real or slimed on them by an opponent - CD14 may be primed for a female councilmember.

NONE of Villaraigosa's people could get 5 points, even if they had his money to back them.

BUT, it's all moot, because Antonio, much to his chagrin, will still technically be the CM of CD14 for at least until next year, when he runs for state senate.

Captive audiences - no one's leaving their cars to got take a leak, while driving on the freeway.

One of ADV's IEs bought ads on the same KABC hour, and Hahn used 5-6 of his minutes to debunk the 30-second spot.

Now THAT's rebuttal.

He has invites to be on 2-3 more talk shows during drivetime before the vote.

This is a major CHINK in ADv's armor. His hacks say in the Times today, you NEVER let stuff go unanswered -- but most of this radio time is completely one-sided. Almost none of the call-ins are negative on Hahn, either.

Parke Skeleton and Art Pulido (of last week's Kerry protest mini-fame) basically live on the SAME block in the district -- right around the corner from each other.

How's that for WEIRD trivia.

ALSO, the house Villaraigosa rented to get into the district to run against Pacheco is one long block away from both of them. Talk about GROUND Zero!

I don't think Bill Rosendahl is a racist.

Anyway, I'm surprised that there has been very little talk of the new endorsements of Antonio Villaraigosa from Zev Yaroslavsky and Tony Cardenas. I'll be honest with you, I just don't know how much these endorsements really mean in terms of actual votes. I can remember back to the Dean campaign where it seemed like he was getting a new endorsement every single day from some important Democrat. In the end, that proved useless. His lead in Iowa slipped, he finished a pathetic 3rd in Iowa 20% behind Kerry. I hope Villaraigosa wins on Tuesday but I think the results will be much closer than the polls are currently showing. People are disinterested in this race and as a result there will be low turnout. Low turnout tends to benefit incumbents. On that count, you vitriolic Hahn staffers are right, at least with me. I am pretty anxious. I beleive that while maybe right now, a large majority of people who plan on voting are planning to vote for Antonio, I'm sure that come election day, there will be a lot of people who will rethink their decision. The media is making way too big of a deal about Antonio being the first Mexican American Mayor and that causes lots of non Mexican American people to worry. So my feeling is, he'll need a big lead going in.

Now a lot of people are talking about how Antonio's campaign is not as exciting as it was 4 years ago. There are some big reasons why. A lot of major stuff has happenned and a lot of other politicians have come along. 9/11, the Afghanistan War, the Iraq War, the Recession, the 2003 Recall, Howard Dean, Barack Obama, the 2004 presidential elections. Let's face it, the prospect of having a latino mayor of LA is not as big or exciting or scary or historically significant as it once seemed. And that reminds me once again, on 9/11 we did have a latino mayor, Alex Padilla. Our city went along just fine through the whole ordeal. I think that's the biggest myth in this whole mayoral campaign. Well that and the idea that Bob Hertzberg is some kind of conservative. He is an extremely liberal Democrat. I would hope for that very reason, he can continue to have a career in politics. We need a voice like his. I am hoping he'll get an opportunity to run for federal office.

One last thing, you all seem to hate Meat with a passion. And by golly, he's said some unintelligent things. But it seems to me that most of the stuff he's said/predicted has been far more accurate than any of the unnessecary vitriole that's been posted in here by Hahn staffers.

Inside there's a photo of Bill and Antonio. I was so angry I tore it up and called all my friends and said vote for FLORA.

With Antonio's record on crime, his "do nothing councilman" attitude, the fact he's missed so many city council meetings, his alignment with Parks, Chair of transpo and hasn't done anything, sits on Education& Neighborhood Committ and hasn't done anything on education and disrespects his own neighborhood councils by not going is enough to VOTE NO ON BOTH OF THEM

THIS IS WHY PEOPLE DON'T TRUST ANTONIO.
LA Times...Nine executives with the New York-based development firm the Related Cos. contributed $9,000 to Villaraigosa this week.

The company is designing a huge $1.2-billion project for Grand Avenue in downtown Los Angeles that will need city approval. The company had previously given $9,000 to Hahn.

But the tables turned after Villaraigosa became embroiled in a controversy about questionable contributions from employees of two Florida companies. Villaraigosa's calendar revealed that he had dined with the president of one company a day before donations poured in from employees of an affiliated company.

When Villaraigosa released his most recent schedules this week, numerous meetings had been blacked out, including campaign events.

CHILD ABUSE BILL....Villaraigosa was questioned about the apparent contradiction. "In Appropriations, you vote on the fiscal implication of a bill," he said. "I voted against it on the fiscal grounds, and I voted for it on public policy."

Voters are angry that Antonio's ad is basically stating the mother with the child who was killed is a LIAR.

Villaraigosa's support of gang members. He's standing up for the Constitutional Rights of gang members.

Los Angeles Times
Editorial Page, January 20, 1992
FOR SAFE PARKS, PUT GANGS ON THE PEACE PATH
By ANTONIO VILLARAIGOSA, vice president of the Southern California affiliate of the American Civil Liberties Union.

When I was a teen-ager in East Los Angeles, gangs were a part of my everyday life, just as they are a part of the landscape in neighborhoods throughout Southern California today.....more than 700 gang homicides in 1991 are proof enough...... The lawsuit ushered in the latest phase of this controversy began last summer when Dist. Atty. Ira Reiner selected San Fernando's park problem as a focus........Such ordinances simultaneously do violence to the Constitution and create the illusion of action when they actually accomplish very little. They are based on the cynical premise that gang violence can be eliminated by legislating it out of sight.

Families have a right to visit our parks without being attacked by gangs....These rights are as sacrosanct as any spelled out in our Constitution.But ordinances like those that bar whole categories of people from parks don't, in the long term, make our public spaces safer. They condemn young people of color to arrest or harassment on the basis of how they dress or wear their hair. Some of them will be gang members; many will not.

The only candidate between Bill and Flora who has used a picture of John Kennedy was Flora, in her primary mailer that profaned his picture and legacy by making it her own. She did not campaign for him or his brother, Bobby. She was not endorsed by the Democratic Party. Yet, she has the nerve to title her mailer, "In the Democratic Tradition". No, Flora of Brentwood, you are not in the highest traditions of the Democratic Party. You have not been endorsed by the Party, Bill has. You have not been endorsed by the West LA Dems, Bill has. You did get to "buy" the vote of the LACYD for $25 a vote. So, vote buying and lies are not normally recent hallmarks of the tradition of the Democratic Party. And as for using JFK's picture to insinuate you have a broad base of support by the Democratic Party, just another lie by Rick Taylor. To quote a great Democrat, "I knew John Kennedy, and I know you, you are not John Kennedy." Give it up, Flora. This is not a game for bored housewives on the verge of suffering empty nest syndrome.

Boxer vs. Feinstein (for Hahn)

Latest "do-nothing" freshman progressives (L.A. Weekly) on City Council jumping on the ADV bandwagon (late) vs. more than half of the Council still with Hahn. And Hahn's portion are the more established CMs who've been able to get things done for the city.

Back-scratching, ride-along pols vs. murderous, drive-by gangbangers.

Not even a contest.

11:36, you mess up your own points with you Hahn-hating blindness...

"Not surprising for a little white boy that had to run away to private school when the big bad negroes bullied him."

Compared to: ADV being KICKED OUT of private school for BEING the bully.

Yeah, that was an EXCELLENT point to bring up to make your case.

ADV is still a thug, he just hides his tattoos and wears better clothes. He's "graduated" (something very hard for him to do from ANY school), from gangbanger to political pimp.

The FUNNY part is it's Hahn -- the victim from years ago now standing up like a man and fighting his OWN battles, while historic bully ADV now tries to play "victim," BEGS his supporters to "defend him" and runs like a schoolgirl from any question harder than "where do you buy those NICE expensive suits Tony V."

Which came first with ADV, the chicken or the pimp?

A couple of comments. First ADV claimed when he ran for Assembly that he dropped out of high school when he got a rare disease that forced him to stay home for several months. When did the story change? After taking a poll and finding out this one worked better?

Second, they mentioned in the Times that the Hahn people are attacking ADV because he was censured by the NAACP for not hiring African Americans when he was Assembly Speaker. After he got caught, he started bringing in the Martin Ludlow's of the world, but this issue is just getting exposure and will really hurt Villaraigosa.

Baca made an ass out of himself and his poor deputies. LAPD are are supporting HAHN. Antonio may have promised that loser Bitter Bernie something but just his alignment with that corrupt ex-chief has them pissed. Dumb Cardenas. He comes out a couple days left. Shows what a loser mentality he has. IF he really liked Antonio he would have come out a long time ago.

Antonio is so afraid he refused to go on KTLA. Hahn was there and Hal Fishman stated we asked Villaraigosa but he denied. Seems his flacks are afraid that temper is flaring up too often. That's why they had to whisk him away yesterday in front of reporters. What a big sissy!!!! He's losing major ground and is running scared of answering reporters questions.

Lessseee - frontrunners in the 14th? Good question, because it's certain that Antonio will win.

Cedillo would be a fool to try the Sactown to Downtown thing. Candidates trying are like 13-2.

Huizer has got a lot of baggage. Some people here in Boyle Heights have told me he came here illegally, and that it can be proven. If he runs for CD14, with all them candidates, hotdamn will it get ugly. It's like, even if he won, he'd never get no further because of the illegal stuff.

Victor Greigo. Naw, he lost to Pacheco - why would he run again?

I would bet Nick Pacheco takes it without a runoff, if he decides to run. It's like, don't mess with a guy out for vengeance.

If Antonio chooses to mess with the 14th, he'll look very un-mayorlike, petty, and too eastside. Besides, us oldtimers gave him a break this election. We know folks who know folks who know he was present at the sites of two murders. That ain't too mayoral either.

Best to let us sleeping perros lie.

Right. Except just what do you think Doug Dowie was doing in Hahn's office every day, sweeping the floor and mixing the martinis?

Hahn is no one to talk about expensive P.R. It cost the DWP a bundle. That's what the indictment and grand juries are all about. F-H has given back 5.7 Million; who knows how much they got away with.

Wake up and smell the roses.

"Wake up and smell the roses?"

They're getting a MUCH different scent out on the campaign trail, apparently -- especially today -- the smell of FEAR!

Yes, Attention-Deficit Villaraigosa exposed yet another serious deficiency to local media -- now TV viewers know he has no SPINE, either.

Once again local media made a first-rate case that ADV® is afraid of them and of his own record. No, this wasn't the right-leaning, knuckle-dragging, less-than 2 percent of the audience, lost-cause audience of talk radio that his most ardent supporters have been saying he has every right to avoid.

This was LOCAL TV news media. One of the network affiliates, just like when he accepted Hertzberg's endorsement -- only this time James wasn't handy to wisk ADV® away and he had to lie (SAY it ain't so), and say he "had to use the restroom." But then, as Linda Breakstone reported in a lengthy Channel 2 news report - HE SNUCK OUT THE BACK DOOR, instead.

This is the same TV media where he's been paying (well. . . his loyal supporters have been paying) MILLIONS to reach out with the message that HAHN has been running away from (not even his own) responsibilities with LAUSD.

This is ALSO the same TV media where they've paid millions to portray Hahn as invisible and MIA on REAL mayoral duties -- and there was Hahn, standing up in front of a sea of local TV news cameras answering tough questions while ADV® fumbled for his zipper in the WC. (Oh, but he did have Ace Smith talk for him about something completely unrelated).

Breakstone was doing HER job (try THAT in CD14, ADV®), and probing into why the explanations for ADV®'s now infamous lone vote against the child-killer law keep changing, and (as the L.A. Times proved today), don't hold water anyway. Channel 2 also had law professors on debunking his campaign's definition of what the "other" law would have done -- the one he "supported" instead -- that died before ever being enacted.

But ADV®'s answers weren't the only things not "holding water," because spineless Tony V. had to use the toilet, FAST (and run away even faster).

Maybe there are different definitions of being "proud" depending on one's political "bent" (a good word for someone without a spine) -- because ADV® keeps saying:

"I'm proud of my record of accomplishments in my district," - but mentions these non-existent deeds less and less.

"I'm proud of my support of public education," - but he wouldn't "risk" sending his own offspring there.

"I'm proud of my record in the state assembly," but each day he's less and less willing to discuss what he did there, to the point of sneaking away from reporters who ask (and not even that skillfully).

I hope at least when he went to the "gents" that he "rolled up his sleeves" -- because I imagine standing at the urinal could get very "messy," when you have NO SPINE!

I'm sure at this point the ADV®-lovers will "rant" back and say "he's going to win, get used to it." I still think they're wrong (Hahn, 52; ADV®, 48), but for the sake of argument, if they're NOT -- just how "proud" will they be that he won by lying, breaking promises, lying, hiding, lying, and running away?

(Did I mention - lying?)

I'd always assumed that being a do-nothing CM for two years would end up being the ADV® Achilles heel, but looks like I was wrong -- it may indeed be fear and cowardice.

From Mayor "Poopy". . . to "MARE" SCARED-SHITLESS" (you should pardon my French). What a glorious day that would be!

6:28 p.m. opined: "F-H has given back 5.7 Million; who knows how much they got away with."

Someone gave a pretty thorough analysis of all that a few weeks back here, but if you just even look at the amount F-H billed the city under Hahn's administration, setting aside the (ADV-endorsing) Riordan years, the city HAS to be on the upside of all that - especially saving a ton of legal costs in the process.

Fleishman was only billing the city about $5-6 million a year for PR services and - like it or not - they WERE supplying them under a valid city contract (STARTED by ADV-endorsing Riordan).

Hahn canned them somewhere mid-term -- so ballpark, L.A. is getting back half, or more, of the TOTAL billings for the time he has been in office.

Hell, F. Lee., Johnny C. and Clarence Darrow combined couldn't ever prove a professional service firm like that had padded 50 percent -- if they took it all the way to the Supremes.

Delgadillo said they could only PROVE about $800K in overbilling... (ADV-endorsing, again) Chick, who wants to embarrass Hahn, had the figure much higher at $4+ million -- but that was "questionable" (or, in legal terms... tough luck, prosecution!)

Aften spending millions in legal fees to prove or disprove "questionable" (a number-cruncher's opinion vs. that of a legal expert, like Delgadillo), it's pretty clear it was L.A. that made out like a BANDIT in the settlement, and F-H has not only paid all bogus billings back, but had to EAT millions in legitimate billings to spare their reputation and keep their own lawyers from getting rich in the process.

You're right.

Don't forget Riordan endorsed Villaraigosa; I'm not sure you mentioned that...

And speaking of worthless endorsements... I'm wondering why, since Antonio hates the current LAUSD system so much, that he would want the teacher's union to support him. If LAUSD is bad and the kids are so dumb, wouldn't the teachers have ANYTHING to do with that?

I'm not saying teachers are dumb, I just think the majority of them are lazy. Union induced laziness. Sheep-like if you will... The education of the students can't be pinned on the few school board members, so the teachers must take responsibility. I'm not sure I would want their endorsement.

Listen, these sleazy telephone calls, these racist TV ads, these ugly mailers would never have happened if Jim Hahn were alive.

His term has been reminiscent of the last term of Tom Bradley.

"Dead Man Walking"; while the apparichniks ran wild behind the scenes, enriching themselves at the City's expense, or should I say OUR expense, as taxpayers.

Jim Hahn is in trouble because he did not run a good administration. He brought this upon himself, and he has no one else to blame except himself and his lack of management skills.

"You can fool some of the people, all of the time, and you can fool all of the people some of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time."

Phil -- more and more, the papers are saying the so-called "sleazy" things coming from Hahn's camp are MORE trues than ADV's dodges.

What's so sleazy about making a weasel like ANtonio defend his own voting record? Nothing.

ADV attacked Hahn for six months as part of a "gang" saying being "investigated" is the same as being guilty. Hahn's not guilty, period. And people are getting tired of the "crying wolf" game that ADv is famous for. Now little Tony's crying like a baby about a one-on-one fight.

That's the definition of a tyrannical little thug. ADV's legacy! He's too weak and too cowardly to do any of us any real good, ever.

Good to quote Lincoln, though -- a Republican, a guy who kept the Union together (like Hahn kept the city together). Republicans will vote for Hahn in large majority, and he's supported by all the LINCOLN clubs -- what a coincidence. It IS ADV whose been doing all the FOOLING!

Hahn's not dead, it's ADV's conscience and career that's

The 15 minutes of fame also just applies to actors and celebrities -- like Tony V., whose time as up in 1999. Real public servants like Hahn are not bound by the "15 minutes" because it isn't about "fame." It's about doing a good job -- something ADV will not understand in 15 years, let alone 15 minutes.

JImmy's sleaze campaign fell flat on its face this weekend because $1.4 Million is still less than $3.8 Million.

Antonio's constant attention to raising money paid off because he inundated the airwaves with positive and negative ads, about four to one to Hahn's all negative.

Hahn hit some small churches with his son and his sister and Merv Dymally, a sign of times gone by; Antonio hit the big churches with Maxine, Yvonne, Herb, Bernie and a real Icon, Mr. John Mack, a revered figure in this community.

Antonnio went to Israeli Independence Day and was cheered; Hahn went and no one recognized him. He's been absent there for four years as well.

Jimmy is a "Dead Man Walking".

I ought to know one when I see one; I've been dead for years.
