Wasn't he supposed to give up the presidency after he declared?

You couldn't find a more recent picture of Bratton that standing in front of HAHN?

Man... someone's phoning it in these days.

You could but VILLARAIGOSA would be in front and in the way, and if Bratton pushes him off like Kerry did, he would be labeled as a racist.

Not a big surprise... Padilla obviously controls Bratton's budget... the interesting thing is that padilla apears to be scared enough to releas this 9 months before the electon. Montanez getting the sheriff's deputies, professional police officers among others forced his hand

I want to read the statement itself with Bratton's words. I DON'T BELIEVE THIS FOR ONE SECOND. BRATTON NEVER CAME OUT FOR HAHN OPENLY. LAPD CAN'T BE POLITICAL STRAIGHT OUT..I'VE HEARD THIS IS ABSOLUTELY NOT TRUE.

WHERE'S THE PROOF....PLS POST IT.

12:18 Excellent point made. Kerry pushed Villaraigosa off the podium during a press conference, but if it were Bratton...racism would be the word of the day by trolls.

Trolls and a racist like John Mack the biggest idiot now on the police commission and hates the LAPD. He was with Mohammed and the Nation of Islam boys just last year threatening to burn the city. Worst choice ever for that position. Mack needs to learn how to be politically correct instead of spewing his racism all over the city channel. He's so dumb he doesn't even know how he's coming off.

He's no dummy and neither is the Little Brown troll named Antonio Villaraigosa.

Think about WHY he's on the commission or any one with a fault or problem with something such as Valerie Velasco and the Airport, and (Her name slips my mind) The Lawyer who filed a suit in behalf of the ACLU about Homeless now siting on the Panel about Homelessness and David Freeman for the Port.

This is all a big ploy by Villaraigosa to have those wild cards that will ALWAYS cause strife and turnoil, so that he'll always come out like the Hero for those Press Trolls, yet to you and me we won't see ANYTHING done in his term because of these people, so we can blame them BUT not Him. These folks are his political insurance "scapegoats"

Yeah, but Velasco makes the commission meetings more entertaining since she obviously has no clue what she's doing! Then there's Sylvia Patsouras - watch 35! Why pick based on real ability to run the airport when you can just pick based on payback.

Can someone explain the Kerry pushing Villar off the stage incident?

I wonder if Alex Padilla misled Bratton on that endorsement as well.


"I have the mayor's support!!!"..sure u do.

Padilla, not getting my support or anyone else that I know. I will work everyday to make sure he does not get in. The pig wouldn't share the presidency of the city council.

I hear Padilla is telling everyone that Cindy is going to pull out of the race in January. That's why people are actually endorsing him. Who is the major going with???

There will be some dual endorsements, just watch.
Nobody's watching. Everybody is occupied with the november election

Momentum killer?

Seems to me that Alex has been caught on the defensive. The announcements of his endorsements are to make for up for deficits in his candicacy.

This week he announces a police chief, since every major law enforcement association/group is going with Ms Montanez.

A while back he announces women, (none of them are from the actual 20th Senate) because women voters out # male voters by almost 20%. He hires Boxer's ex-chief of staff & her consulting group..after Cindy does a mild blurb on the gender demographics of the 20th. What's next, is Alex Padilla going to run as a woman? to make up for this disadvantage?

Wait til the real names start droppin! 8:09, agreed...he wants no piece of her.

The Christopher Commission talks about how bad it is for the chief to get involved in politics. No wonder that Bratton can't get us to abide by the consent decree. What a joke!

If the chief is so sure that Padilla is going to win the senate, then who does he think will replace Padilla?! If Cindy gets beat, she will be the next city council member in CD 7. Why piss her off chief? It's better to dual endorse chief.

Just by comparing Alex's city page to Cindy's assembly page, one can see who's the empty suit.

What's that guy's agenda & vision, anyway?
Somebody needs to really hammer him...he's had it too easy.

TRUST ME CHIEF BRATTON NO WAY ENDORSED PADILLA. NO ONE HAS YET POSTED THE PRESS RELEASE OR ANY EVIDENCE OF IT. REMEMBER BRATTON CALLING CITY COUNCIL A BUNCH OF LOONEY TOONS. I TOTALLY AGREE WITH HIM.

It's funny that Mayor Sam posted this piece without a news source. Is it me or is someone trying to stir the pot?

Yeah, It's me. I'm sounding like my dingbat wife.

Bunker -- Wake up. It was posted yesterday before there were any sources to link to. It's called breaking news.

Then state that, you nut! That's called responsible reporting and removing possible libel suits.

But I forget who I'm talking to, Mayor Frank and Sam are only interested in Postive Propoganda for Tony Montana, oops I mean Antonio Villaraigosa.

So far this week there are two negatives and zero positives on AV. Last week was even more lopsided. Hell, you even commented on almost all of these.

Word of advice: It is normally easier to see what is going on around you when you pull your head out of your ass.

Thanks, Mayor Frank for that wonderful bit of advice. At least my head is in MY OWN ASS, rather than the Mayor's, You brownnoser!

Oh also Mayor Frank, the reason why he has those negative comments is because he's not doing things right. Such as stand for taxpayers and not bankrupt the city.

If he had any backbone, I wouldn't be complaining right now. I would compliment him, I'm a level headed and rational guy.

But I have this stupid thing I do, it's called Thinking and Forming my own opinion based on the facts.
