Who Is Mayor Sam?

Some folks have been trying to out Mayor Sam, so I thought it would be fun to see if any of you can guess who I am.

Is Mayor Sam really:
  • Dan Shallman
  • Karl Rove
  • Jim Hahn
  • Joan Milke Flores
  • Sam Yorty, Jr.
  • Ace Smith
  • Teri Hatcher
  • James Carville
  • Leonard Shapiro
  • Doug McIntyre
  • MEAT
  • Lindsay Lohan
  • The Fourth Floor Blogger I
  • The Fourth Floor Blogger II
  • Larry David
  • Some other person
If anyone guesses, they'll get a free Mayor Sam autographed picture. Along the way, we may eliminate some of the above as choices just to keep you guessing.

Mayor Sam is actually not one person. You can see this because of the difference in the tone of the articles "he" writes.

My understanding is that the entire thing is the brilliant creation of a political consulting firm out of Orange County. Each of the three principles of that firm write the articles. Hence, the difference. Two of them are women by the way.

What they need to do is to compile a Mayor Sam Style Guide so their articles are very consistent.

Cindy M. must be bucking for a position in the new Mayor's entourage - but I say we get the fine citizens of Miami to pay this freight, since they wanted to "clean house" at L.A. City Hall so much. How about it Fla. "hisssspanics" -- start popping for this ticket:

ITEM NO. (55)

"Everyone knows it's Dan Shallman, John's brother." Thanks for the solid sourcing on that one, Newsweek. Come on, doesn't anyone have anything but rumors and innuendo on this?

Right now, from what we can tell, it's as likely to be Karl Rove as it is Shallman or any of the other alleged likely candidates.

You cuys aren't thinking straight. All that cutting and pasting hinders original thought.

Think of it this way: Who has the means and motive to do this stuff?

Flacks with a lot of time and staff to do research. Flacks who have worked in and around City Hall. Flacks who want to say they "did something" for lack of a long work history.

Plus, only men have the ego and agressive tendencies to write like Mayor Sam.

So, here is what we are looking for:
*Ex-Flack for Mayor Riordan or other Citywide
*Male
*Under 35

It's likely Mayor Sam is a team effort of Matt Szabo and Ben Austin.

Search your feelings, you know it to be true...

I think Mayor Sam, the site, is a subsidiary of Shallman & Skelton. I think Mayor Sam, the person, is Dan Shallman. I think Shallman & Skelton will work on Dan's campaign for District Attorney. But after Huizar's crushing defeat by Gil Cedillo, Dan will look for a new consultant.

I thought Shallman was more Democrat and he must be younger.

I believe it could be a woman for sure, yet none come to mind.

Definitely from the Valley or worked for a valley pol.

I think 90% of the posters have nothing to do with City Hall really. They just like to read about it.
