Smell Good Plumbers?
A few of our sources tell us that this "leak" was unexpected and caught some of the MEAV transtion team folks by surprise. And now they all look at each other with suspicious eyes!
Its possible that - like the Watergate Plumbers of old - some folks on the transition team may wish to call in the Mike Diamond Smell Good Plumbers (fragrance free of course as not to offend anyone) to plug up the leaks. We're hearing that the working groups may not continue to meet or change their strategy to keep that damn Mayor Sam from getting any info.
Interestingly, some have pointed the finger at former candidate and transition team chair Bob "Can I have a hug" Hertzberg as the source of the leaks. Mayor Sam can assure all my gentle readers and fellow tinhorns that there was no clandestine meeting at Art's Deli where the Hugster slipped me a file. So perhaps - and I truly hope so - that Hertzberg flack Brian Hay will stop pounding my email box for the details - Hugsaberg was not the source of my information.
What I can say is that Mayor Sam only got a few chunks of info at a time and then the trail went cold. I didn't even get to hook up with someone at 1:00 a.m. at King Taco in Montebello for Christ Sake! As always, I guarantee my sources 100% confidentiality and in this case, I am not exactly entirely sure who my "Deep Throat" is, but its certainly not Mark Felt, Pat Buchanan or even George H.W. Bush. That's good, cause I don't have a balcony to put a plant on.
