Politicians Who Spam

Boy Nick Pacheco has pissed off at least one computer user in CD14. We got a hold of this little tidbit in response to a bulk email from the Pacheco forces:

From: XXXXX
To: Friends@nickpacheco.com
Date: Wed, 28 Sep 2005 21:00:56 -0400
Subject: [Friends] (no subject)

Why have I been subscribed to this list without my knowledge or consent? Who is Nick Pacheco? Why does he think I am his friend? Do friends spam friends and sign them up for mailing lists without their consent?

Does anyone else wonder how this person got their private e-mail address? Could it have been stolen from the North East LA list? Isn't that a violation of the yahoogroups terms of service?

So is Nick Pacheco a spammer and a thief?

Does everyone else think this is just hunky-dory and I'm the only grinch who thinks this is beyond TACKY.

Now before you cutters and pasters and anti-AV/Huizy forces get your panties in a bunch, I am not doing this cause I support Huizy. I don't live in CD14, but if I did, I'd probably vote for Ruby. But this is a good lesson for all those running - watch the spam!.

sorry, i disagree. we get so much spam already, i'm willing to put up with campaign spam because I like to know what all the candidates are up to. good for them if they get my email address from a group list. email is a free or low-cost way to get a message out, and i like the fact that free media like email helps undermine the difference between well-funded machine campaigns and grassroots campaigns.

my recommendation to this whiny northeaster is this: if you don't want to read it, just hit delete!

It's probably somebody who supported Nick in the past but like Huizar, Padilla and Reyes, sold their ass to Tony the first chance they got. And it's typical Skelton tactics to try and make this a campaign issue. Given Huizar's lackluster showing, what else has Skelton got? I heard Huizar is telling Nick suporters that Nick's campaign is not going as well as expected - huh? That must be you Huizar looking in the mirror, Nick isn't talking shit about your campaign to your supporters. But then again, you aligned yourself with Tony, proof that you have no idea what a class act is.

Come on...Councilman Pacheco immediately apologized for what was a software glitch.

The person complaining is a registered voter in CD14 and had given her email address when registering to vote. Therefore it's safe to assume she would be getting email from all the candidates.

What's wrong with being informed?

This is really a non issue.

Actually, pursuant to the CAN SPAM act, political campaign emails are not classified as SPAM.

What never ceases to amaze me is how many people will write a long diatribe email instead of clicking a link that deletes their email from the system that would take a fraction of the time. Or even better, just deleting the email.

But instead, they would rather bitch and complain. These same people will bitch and complain when a politician does something they don't agree with but actually GETTING INVOLVED IN THE PROCESS, no.... they will have none of it.

Mayor Sam, if you really want to talk about spam, Take a good long look in the mirror. The timing of this subtle "If I were to vote, I vote for Ruby" is all reaking of siphoning votes away from Pacheco.

This is all a clever scheme by The Antonio Villaraigosa Team. Why do you think most of the council members are sucking on his "political dick"? Endorsing Huizar who has no credentials. They know he's running for governor and would like to be nice to him NOW so they can jump on his staff. (ie Jack Weiss, Laura Chick, Alex Padilla) or get an endorsement so he or she can be Mayor (Hertzberg, Parks, LaBonge)

To focus attention away from Jose Huizar's LACK of accomplishments. Ruby is just a decoy to siphon votes away from Pacheco.

Think 2000 Presidential Election and Ralph Nader.

Also think of this past mayoral election. Villaraigosa cleverly got his buddies Bitter Bernie Parks and Bob Hertzberg to essentially neutralize my key voting blocs, South LA and SF Valley, forcing those folks who would have vote for me to vote for someone else.
Then when the run-off came those who voted for the other candidate (Hertzberg or Parks) didn't bother to vote in the run-off.

My point is if she's such as good candidate with this kind of background, much like Jim Alger you guys would have but attention to her from the on set!!!

Pacheco is spamming because he is being crushed by Huizar in the fundraising race. The filings, just up, show Pacheco having raised $144,447 through 9/24. Huizar has raised $279,288.

Huizar's latest mailer is a LAUGH riot!

It talks all about how he has SET LAUSD STRAIGHT in the last 4.5 years! (HUH?) When did THAT happen? Did we go from having 51 percent drop out rates (even higher in HIS school board area), to JUST 50 percent??

Is this like when people chided GOV. Bill Clinton about taking Arkansas from the 50th poorest, dumbest state to the 49th (passing up MISSISSIPPI?), in multiple terms?

PLUS, it BARELY mentions Huizar's actually running for CITY COUNCIL, just goes ON and on and on about LAUSD!

$5 bucks says most people who get that flyer (and don't bother to read down to the bottom line) are now asking "is there ANOTHER school board race coming up?"

You obviously don't understand the basis of a grass roots campaign (the kind Pacheco is running, the kind that put him in office in '99 over a better financed opponent supported by West side money people, just like Huizar).

The "contact" in the Pacheco campaign is being handled by volunteers, the people -- reaching out to their own neighbors.

Slicks in the mail between the junk flyers (from the "rich" Huizar campaign), vs. my neighbor telling me Pacheco is a better choice to lead CD14. . . which is more convincing?

As a candidate, when you buy your voter information data from the county, it has a field for emails, which is included on the voter reg form. It is highly likely this individual put their email on the voter reg form. If you don't like the legal spam or phone calls, you do not have to give this info to the county. That is why its optional !!

Poor Jose can't get a steady stream of resident volunteers like Pacheco has.

Come on you bloggers, let's get into real issues. Mayor Sam I thought you were better than that. How pathetic you were waste our time when the issues facing the 14th are so much more important.

We have been without representation for over 2 years now. We were lied to by Tony, he lied to everyone he moved his lips too during his run for the 14th. We could have already had the primary and the special election could have decided who would represent the 14th. But no Tony wouldn't allow that.

He cares so much about the 14th we won't know who will represent us until the end of January 2006. That leaves us without representation for 7 months plus the 2 years he was in office campaigning for Davis and Kerry. He's been busy with everyone but the 14th residents.

He left us without a voice at city hall. That's important. And after reading all these blogs, if Tony is putting out a city mailer stating a school board member will accompany him in participating in the clean up, then that's your story. A miss use of city/public funds. When will you call for the ethlics committe to investigate this?

Mayor Sam, don't let us down, everyone is accountable for their actions...even Tony.

Good Article on Villaraigosa by
Robert Greene
http://www.laweekly.com/ink/05/45/news-greene.php

...What were you expecting? This is Antonio Villaraigosa. The man loves being mayor. No, that’s not quite right. The man loves being mayor of Los Angeles. He loves being everywhere, all the time. He loves the trappings of office, he loves the people, he loves the attention. He loves the city. He loves tweaking the press (he calls us “trolls,” by the way). He loves crisis and he loves resolution.

You could tell that by the way he rushed over to LAX when that Jet Blue flight with the damaged landing gear was circling. I mean, does the mayor of Los Angeles really have to be there for the landing? But then, why not? The FAA and the airline made a point of not revealing the pilot’s name, pending an investigation. Ah, but this is Villaraigosa’s city. He got a word with the pilot and then told the world his name was Scott Burke, and that he was a cool customer.

Or how about moving his family into the Getty Mansion? He’s the mayor. That’s his house. For 12 years, L.A. was a city where the mayor didn’t much care for the trappings. Now it’s got someone who does, and this jaded town is, if not yet delighted, at least pleasantly amused.

Next week, Villaraigosa’s going to be on The George Lopez Show (playing himself, of course). And, the Korea Times tells us, he’s planning a trip to Asia. And now he’s filling potholes like crazy. Smiling, shaking hands, getting an earful. It’s as if he were county Supervisor Kenny Hahn!...

And why wasn't the election called earlier, with the run-off in November? Other areas in LA County are doing that. True, all those votes being taken everyday our city council meets without CD14 without a voice. AV really cares about CD14. NOT. He lied to us when he ran. I voted for him, a mistake I will not repeat ever again. To my face he lied.

Hey, did Ludlow's district have a neutral person appointed from his staff to oversee that district while the community decides who they want to rep them? We didn't. Who did that? I was told the CLA would oversee our district during this time.

AND, if AV has sent out fliers with our money for the clean up pushing a school board member who ends up being a candidate for the 14th it is a violation of ethic and should be looked in to.

I drive downtown every day and our community shows the lack of leadership. It shows the lack of care. But why should AV care, he doesn't live here anymore...

Again, people who voted for AV are turning to Nick cause they know he's a doer, gets to root of problems and has solutions.

Robert Urteaga, a trusted and highly competent ex-CD14 staffer (and NO, I'm not him) has been "in charge" of Pacheco's campaign since day one, and still is.

Who's propaganda have you been swallowing.

He started the campaign when it was just a handful of volunteers, some volunteers and consultants have changed -- for the better in the case of the hired hands, `and he is STILL in charge now that a larger groups of volunteers has assembled. I've seen the meetings of volunteers and precinct captains, and the main room of their offices was SRO and the parking lost was triple-parked.

You're way off base, and anyone who reads this blog or ANY online sources about the campaign KNOWS who has been speaking for AND about Pacheco's campaign since the very beginning -- Robert U.

In addition, you NEVER heard the kind of rancor against Pacheco's staff while he was in office that there has been since AV pretended to be the CM in CD14, in fact a LARGE number of community activists in CD14 - especially the Northeast, went so far as to sign and circulate petitions BEGGING Villiaraigosa to keep some of Pacheco's field staff on there, BECAUSE they had done such a good job.

Nothing but praise for Pacheco's staff; nothing but complaints about AV's! That speaks for itself.

You could not BE more wrong.

Exactly.

You can't even pay a Villaraigosa supporter in the NE to praise AV's staff.

There line if "well, AV hasn't been well served by his staff -- but we STILL like him better than Nick."

("Like him better" - not "did a better job.") It was all just a beauty contest to them.

It still is: smile pretty for the camera, Jose!

8:27 Anon, you are dead right. CD14 has been used for one purpose only - Antonio Villaraigosa's ambition. And if the voters choose Huizar, Villaraigosa will have succeeded behond his wildest dreams. Better to be lucky than smart!

OH MY GOD...Jose is on crack..,Just read his political mailer. He's built schools, let's remind ourselves why we are building new schools. WHY is there overcrowding? We the tax payers can pay for everyone who just happens to come here ill-legally. We can't even have a real census in California. Jose was president of the school board for 2 terms. And he wants to continue his good leadership, well if we just talk about CRENSHAW High School and how the seniors grad certificates are meaningless because the DISTRICT which he was in charge of, didn't follow through with the WASC committee implementing and improving programs and academics is one example of his mis-management of the district. What will he do as CD14 councilmember? What will he forget to follow through on? As important as having seniors have their diplomas deemed worthless, WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO US, WHO HAVE ALREADY BEEN LIED TOO AND LEFT TO FEND FOR OURSELVES...

Building schools, let's talk about that. Have you checked his donor list? Look at it. It's all people, their family members and employees who have business with building schools for the LAUSD. From realitors, to PR firms with speciality in government building, architects, to construction companies.

Let's count the dollars he's received from the everyday people who live in the district. Don't we matter?

Of course we don't, which means all his decisions will be decided by those who don't have to live here.

Let's not go down that path.

AV moved out after he let our neighborhoods go to pot.

And no way will the puppet get control over us. His job at LAUSD is all smoke and mirrors. He accomplished nothing for the students and teachers. Look at the test scores. He hasn't followed through on anything for the students, just for himself. Because if he really cared about the children, our children, then he would have stayed to complete one thing...

How embarassing that ROMER was renewed. I am tired of those egos that are more important then the people they claim to want to represent.

Remember the debate at Roosevelt HS? Jose bombed. No one was happy with his answers...and they let him know and he ran out immediately afterwards.

Please, will you bloggers, write about the real stuff. And how important it is to not let the liar AV choose who we have represent us. That only goes to someone who really cared about his district. And AV didn't, we all know that.

Vote no to AV and anyone who would be a puppet to the liar. AV said it himself "NO I WILL NOT RUN FOR MAYOR, I WANT TO BE YOUR COUNCILMEMBER."

No I will not run for Governor, I want to be your Mayor. Will be next. Then he will have lied to everyone in the city. Maybe then you all will know the truth about AV...

Yeah, I agree. Let's talk about the real issues. If the flier from the city for the clean up has Jose as the school board candidate accompanying AV on the clean up, isn't that an ethics violation? I mean, especially if he's in the 14th district campaigning?

I might not agree with every candidate running for the seat in CD14, but they do deserve a certain amount of respect for running. And the field should be fair for running for the seat.

Oh yeah, do you think the parents at CRENSHAW would vote for Jose? I laugh in his face. Good thing he's not running there. Maybe the voters in the 14th are studpid, don't read the newspapers or watch the news.

Our opinion of you is LOSER! You would suck up to anyone who you thought would give you a job. But AV didn't and either will Jose, because he will lose. The jokes on you for being used again...

And Jose you AV might have endorsed you, but he knows your gonna lose, that's why he's moving out.

Isn't Art Pulido the guy who was working with Miguel Hernandez, the ACORN guy, when they were trying to get a meeting with Huizar to discuss LAUSD's option of eminent domaining 40, 80 or 120 homes. And wasn't Huizar's response, "Why do I need to meet with them?" Of course, Huizar sided with the developer and 120 homes were taken over when it could have only been 40.

And wasn't Pulido the guy helping Huizar in his election?

What's the matter Cheech and Chong, afraid that Pulido will mobilize that South Central community against Huizar? I'm sure they have the goods on Huizar.

Let's not go back to slamming people who are campaigning for one candidate. Speak on the issues. 7:00pm anon is obviously an Antonio person cause they used the same tactics against Hahn people.

Pacheco is a people person. He may not have the money or endorsements Jose has but he does have grass root support from many. Antonio's endorsement is going to hurt Jose and even his inside camp is saying it. AV left major baggage in CD14 and Jose is left holding it. Bad association.

Just came from Nick's clean-up of the Evergreen walk - since Antonio hadn't touched it for two years. Nick had more people cleaning up that walk - named in honor of Lloyd Montserrat - than Huizar had at his big labor volunteer push. And all of Nick's volunteers will be walking later.

And this after Huizar sent out that emergency volunteer request to all the labor locals. Looks like desperation is taking hold in Huizar's camp.

10:13 You sound like an insider. Tell me, if you have knowledge of both camps, which one is doing better?

How many supporters attend Huizar's events v.s. Pacheco's?

Who has the most volunteers? (This is a big indication of real support-the amount of volunteers)

AV had an enormous amount of volunteers and he won. The candidate which cannot produce a good number of volunteers regardless of money and endorsements will lose.

No one has ever posted accomplishments of Jose on this blog. All they can say is he has money and endorsements. Jose is using the students as volunteers. Poor kids don't have a clue about anything Jose stands for. They just know he's a board rep and he asked for their help. Use and abuse students. how sad

Huizar's MOST notable accomplishment!

Bailed from his re-election to school board 10 TIMES faster than even Villaraigosa copped out of being the CD14 councilmember (didn't Jose announce he was running for CD14 the SAME month he was sworn in for a second term at LAUSD). Yeah, yeah, Jose-heads will say "BUT WHAT ABOUT ROCKY D??"

BOY those building contractors that gave Jose ALL that campaign money to buy his influence for their school-building bids must REALLY be pissed.

"Hey Jose', GREAT, you won another term on the board -- let's talk about some building contracts... WHA?? You're going where? How soon?" DAMN, then give back the bri... uh, CONTRIBUTIONS.

Now they'll just call him QUICK DRAW Jose'. . . fastest "release" of responsibilities in the "east".
