Padilla's Love Affair with the City of San Fernando -- PART IV
However, I'm changing directions. I'm going to use this post to address some of the comments from the previous three parts, and ask your patience while we continue the series next week. I have been flooded with e-mails, but one I received just last evening took the cake. I need a day to vet it all out, as everything posted so far in this series has and will continue to hold up to the fire, and hope to continue feeding your appetites for a bit.
My summary of the posts so far is this:
Alex invests in three campaigns in the City of San Fernando to get a desired outcome in a heated race. His picked bloc ends up getting sued (Dr. Jose Hernandez, Julie Ruelas) after the election, which causes the city to most likely payout a million dollars to clean up his mess.
His anti-liquor and inflammatory hit pieces used in the campaigns do not coincide with his granting of liquor licenses for his henchman James Acevedo.
This is how he makes a "GOOD FIRST IMPRESSION" on the citizens of San Fernando-- a shortfall of one million dollars out of their budget and leaders in the pockets of a proven slimeball.
Alex Padilla can most likely count on the support of Julie Ruelas and Jose Hernandez for his senate seat, which will mean jack shit, because they're responsible for the lawsuit and we're helping to expose all of it.
Lame duck Nury Martinez is left to ponder her next move, despite her day boss, because Senator Richard Alarcon is already endorsing Assemblymember Cindy Montanez.
And the City of San Fernando has these idiot members thanks in part to Alex Padilla himself, and they have a lawsuit over an issue they have no business having any part of, being that they can't even control these issues in their own backyards.
Now, to address a few of the comments...
Part I set the stage for the play. The comments speak for themselves.
Part II introduced the controversy over my use of bringing the daughter of an elected into the mix. A few thoughts...
1) Again, the screen captures I used are all in the public domain. They were all put there by her. She is of age. The 30 some-odd other pictures and posts and e-mails I sat on, even though they would prove my case that much more and prove Ruelas had intimate knowledge of what was going on. But I didn't, and I won't, because I only needed to make the point that if you can't control your own house, how dare you try to control everyone else's.
2) Any parents out there should learn a valuable lesson about this. Teach your kids about the internet. Anything they post or send could come back to bite them in the ass. If you need an example, contact Tony Scudellari
Part III introduced the money, or pay as we like to call it. We also introduced you one of the people who Alex Padilla likes to call his "trusted advisor." The comments again speak for themselves.
Add it together and the picture begins to form....Playing with elections....Paying certain friends.... Conflicts over city issued permits....Ties to the Hahn Administration...
This one brings it a little closer to home, right inside CD 7, and the City of LA...
(Look for updates to this series next week on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. I figure if Alex Padilla can ignore the masses during Council Session on those days, we can give them a forum and a little chit-chat to keep them occupied and relieve the stress. Chalk it up to another public services that the Sister City provides for our constituents.)
