Brito had previously served prison time for embezzlment and in the 90s was charged with felony grand theft and forgery; which lead to a two year prison sentence.

Hey Mayor Sam! Looks like Kevin Roderick was (LA)Observing your blog and stole another story from you. You keep beating that sanctimious fossil every time!

This guy had some similar, previous position with the Loyola Law School, just a few months before UCLA. The NortheastLA@yahoogroups.com people have been buzzing about it for weeks and taking some heavy duty abuse from the "con" himself, online and directly. He even posted a "Blogger.com" blog for "Cypress Park Assholes" for outing him, just before the story broke in the Bruin (apparently someone on that list tipped the school paper, which did a GLOWING write-up of him last November).

Scooped by 2 1/2 hours if my math is correct. Good thing he pointed out it wasn't google searchable at that point. Problem is, anyone with an rss feed to Mayor Sam had the scoop hours before. I hate it when the details get in the way :) Go Sam!

Too bad all the other blogs are crediting LA Observed with this "scoop"

I clicked on your link and see that Roderick never claimed it's a scoop. He says right on his blog that it came out of the Daily Bruin, and credits some guy named Patterson. Claiming a scoop for something that already appeared in the media would be lame.
