Illegal Covert Campaign by Huizar Supporters

Here's the newest installment of nonsense in CD 14.

Subject: Illegal Covert Campaign by Huizar Supporters


Dear Mr. Demerjian,

I am forwarding you this information so that you can investigate the legalities of a covert campaign that is being waged against Councilman Nick Pacheco.

Because the packets lack the legally required disclosure information, we do not know:

- who is paying for these pieces
- who is designing and distributing these pieces
- who is being paid to hand these out
- who is part of the group in charge

All we do know is that Huizar supporter (and publicly recognized by the Huizar website) "Alvin Parra" left the Councilman a voicemail admitting his role in the conspiracy.

Attached is the "Alvin Parra voice-mail" and our press release with the text of the voicemail.

Look forward to the results of your investigation and the names of those that met at Mr. Parra's house.

Thank you.

Robert Urteaga.

Robert Urteaga
Campaign Manager
Nick Pacheco For City Council

EXTRA EXTRA EXTRA EXTRA

Team Jose Huizar has gone to an all time low. His dumb & dumber partner little crook Alvin Parra and team are sending out negative slanderous pieces on Pacheco this afternoon. People in district are furious that they've resorted to be the scum of the earth. If Jose's numbers are so great and he has all the endorsements and money why go to the gutter?????? My guess is Pacheco is looking pretty good and has name recognition. Pacheco has done remarkable at all the debates making Jose look like a kid still in grammar school.

AVLIN PARRA...

The guy who SCREWED UP his own WIFE's school board campaign with unethical backroom deals and games? (Who was his wife's campaign consultant - OH YEAH, the same guy running Who-say HOSE-ars).

The guy who tore up the El Sereno neighborhood council for months with illegal recall moves that had DONE threatening to de-certify them, (and then he STILL couldn't get elected it's president after a real recall?)

The guy who publishes a record-holding community newspaper. Repeat winner, "MOST TYPOS PER PAGE" in the industrialized publishing world.

THAT Alvin Parra?


Somebody call Frederiqueuo the conman, again -- there's going to be yet another vacancy on Huizar's "individual endorsements" campaign Website.. First Tony, then Alvin. A SCUD, then a DUD!

All that campaign money, and they can't buy a muzzle big enough to deal with the Eastside's most inept attack dog.

Geez, Huizar, didn't Skelton tell you Parra was a bonehead? Dock that consultant's pay envelope $10,000 or so - just for that.

And you would think after trying to get all that traction off something a nominal supporter of Pacheco's did 3 years ago to nail AV with mailers, that SOMEONE would have put out a memo saying "NO slime package distribution."

There is nothing illegal about distributing newspaper articles about someone. The pieces don't say to vote for or against anyone -- they are not campaign pieces. Just newspaper articles.

Another battle in Pacheco's neverending war to intimidate and harass others to hide the truth about his own sleazy career. Like when Pacheco sent out letters at the beginning of the campaign threatening to sue any newspapers that said anything bad about him.

What a joke.

3:59 anon, I don't think Pacheco's letter said anything about suing any newspaper about printing "bad things" about him. It was a reminder that whatever they printed about him should be well researched and be truthful. Surely you wouldn't want lies printed about you?
And Parra's message, left on Pacheco's answering machine, would imply that the distribution of the "mailers" were part of Huizar's campaign.
I don't know if Parra is or isn't an idiot. I do know he ran for CD14 in 1999, ran for a few weeks in 2003 and for a few days this year. Parra has some idea of campaign rules and can't be allowed to hide behind the "bonehead" or the "Homer Simpson" defense. Furthermore, Jose Huizar has to take responsibility for this and I hope the DA investigates it.

I guarantee you, Alvin Parra is a Huizar precinct captain, and has access to all the voter rolls and KNEW who to get those to (through the Huizar campaign office).

Better BURN those volunteer sign-in sheets Jose. Better yet, shred them first, THEN burn them.

They sure as hell weren't out there just going "eeny-meeny-miney-moe" we've got a thousand targeted slime packages, and which one of these 80,000 homes in the district should we plant this stuff at -- and then just HOPE there are actually some registered voters living there.

NOPE, working with inside info; STRAIGHT from the Huizar campaign orrofices.

Know who ELSE is a Parra partner-in-slime? Who already violated campaign rules regarding neighborhood councils during the mayor's race? (HINT: Look for the recently named public works commissioner with the bad multi-color hair die job). You know, the one's who's pissed that Pacheco's telling people she wants to add a new TRASH fee days after being sworn in.

She's NEVER far behind Alvin.

To have EVEN hoped to make this effort worthwhile, Parra would have had to had a bunch of information from Huizar's campaign staff as to who to approach.

He got some bucks, but he sure wasn't going to send these to every voter around - maybe even people already committed to Huizar, or die-hard Pacheco supporter who would rat them out.

NOPE, they HAD to have fresh, this-week info from Huizars campaign as to who the fence-straddler are, or they would never have bothered.

Why does media ignore that LAUSD has a great Magnet Program.

But, there is a problem with the program. It is taking in kids from outside the LAUSD district, suburb areas that are not affiliated with LAUSD. How does this happen. Parents lie about their place of address and put one that is in LAUSD. LAUSD does not verify, only use utility bill and sometimes nothing at all.

Meanwhile, intelligent kids that DO LIVE in LAUSD area are losing a seat to Mr. & Mrs upper middle class because the jobs they have are right next to the LAUSD. Wow! What a privelage. My neighbor's kid, smart kid, was turned down after two years on a waiting list for magnet. Then we have Mr. Meyers, Ms. GOMEZ-ROMERO, who work at LAC USC and actually live outside the area, but use a friends address. Mr. Baca, city worker lives outside the district. All taking up spaces from our well deserved neighborhood students. Tell me, can this corruption stop, do I have to put the fake and real addresses they use?

So everyone can feel like they are making some headway, Pacheco can throw out his press release, make it seem official, buts its just his last gasp of air in an un-remarkable campaign he's run.

If this stuff hadn't ALREADY been debunked, Parke Skelton would have had mailings going out with it, like be did in 2003, BEFORE it was debunked.

THEN he could have SAVED $200,000 bucks wasted on trying to convince people Huizar was the JC SAVIOR of LAUSD (which isn't SAVED by a long shot).

But THAT would have gotten the campaign sued, and penalized. SO, do it on the sly, down, dirty, to targeted undecideds - OUTSIDE the campaign laws.

If I distribute old copies of the New York Times today, would you believe that WMD are still in Iraq based on those obvious false/wrong/tainted stories? I doubt it.

And there was no substance to the accusations made by the award winning L.A.Times against Nick Pacheco. But, unlike the NYT the LAT is unable or unwilling to set the record straight.

As for your comments on an unremarkable campaign. What is truly unremarkable is the personal performance of Jose Huizar. Here is a candidate with nearly three times as much money as Pacheco, almost every endorsement imaginable, the full backing of a very popular mayor, and he still can't get his campaign into top gear. Huizar's performances in forums and debates is shocking. And, now, trying to help a moribund campaign, Alvin Parra resorts to unethical and possibly illegal campaign tactics.

There's no way, he was going to let the fact it was all lies, or campaign rules, or even possible law suits keep him from using the same tripe again to help another propped up paper tiger candidate.

He could not possibly resist. It's his best slime-baby dirty trick, "better" (even though false) than anything he pulled against Hahn. No way he'll retire it just because the NEWS portions of the papers won't touch the filth anymore.

That's all you need to get an "investigation" going. PERIOD.

Those false claims have been a part of every campaign Pacheco has been a part of since then. Still 100 percent LIES, still nipping at his heels.

Better to squash them EVERY DAMN TIME they show up, until the can't keep raising their little lying heads.

Nothing Pacheco has done, except continue to be ALIVE makes these part of "continued discussion" -- which they will be until enough people know what BULLSHIT Skelton invented that he can't keep dribbling his bile out there every other year.

For some god-forsaken reason, Skelton want Pacheco's career dead, and he's willing to use absolute scum like Parra to keep this garbage alive on the Eastside.

Kill it dead this time, Pacheco. You don't deserve to be crucified repeatedly so Skelton can buy bigger better cars to run up into his illegal cul-de-sac, and keep getting do-nothing councilmembers to the district that needs "do-SOMETHING" more than any other.

Here's a little run down on these three stooges.
Steve Lopez from the L.A. Times branded Alvin as the "HOMER SIMPSON OF L.A. POLITICS" because of his reaction after getting busted for that memo - DOH! And how did Parke Skelton react to that memo sent to his office, his best Sergeant Shultz impersonation " I know notheen, noootheeen."

Enrique Gasca, boy you have your head up so far Tony's ass, how are his tonsils? What about you supporting independent leadership as you previously posted. I guess too much independence is not a ggod thing. Does Jose Huizar know you are going to blow it for him?

Pete Navarro, good ole' Petey. Navarro is actually a good guy but still thinks he owes Tony because as Tony's Cathedral High classmate, Tony covered for him when they got caught smoking out - back when marijuana was a serious drug. Pete went on to graduate from Cathedral and get his law degree and actually passed the bar. If the tables were turned, maybe Tony would have been the one passing the bar.

The funny thing is that all these El Sereno "activists" oppose the Long Beach freeway. Did you guys know that the rallying cry for the recall people in El Sereno is that Tony sided with South Pasadena over El Sereno when he pushed for the connector road, which by the way gave contracts to Tony's and Alatorre's buddies.

This action has raised several concerns about the board's ability to censure and relieve the president of his duties. Our department has also recieved a formal complaint by a stakeholder against that action. That complaint has been fowarded to your Neighborhood Council for handling.

We requested advise from the Office of the City Attorney regarding this matter. We recieved very clear advise. We also understand that there is a petition circulating to recall the board president that the board will eventually adress.
Based on the board's action to censure a board member, the City Attorney"s office has said that the LA-32 Neighborhood Council does not have the ability to take this type of action.

The definition of "censure" is to criticize a board member, and does not include the ability to strip a board member of duties required under the bylaws. A motion for censure does not nullify those obligations.

Therefore, Richard Acosta must continue to remain as the stakeholder-elected president vested with all official duties under the bylaws. Mr. Acosta remains a member of any committees unless and until the appointing entity takes appropriate action.

On March 7, 2005, our department recieved a formal complaint submitted by susan Lavine, a stakeholder. As with all formal complaints, it was fowarded to the board to allow the Neighborhood Council to address it first. The complaint suggest and request immediate action to resolve this issue. It also states that an appeal would be made directly to the board at the next general board meeting.
Considering the advise that has been recieved by the City Attorney's office that the removal of Mr. Acosta was improper, we do not feel that it is necessary for any further action to be taken on the complaint by your Neighborhood Council, except maybe to recieve and file it.
There are specific provisions in the bylaws regarding the use of a petition to remove a board member that must be followed. The petition requires that the board first schedule a special election to determine if Mr. Acosta should be removed. as president.
Until this process is followed, and a majority of the stakeholder voters support a recall, Mr. Acosta remains as board member with all of the official duties noted in the bylaws. If the board has not yet scheduled a special election, we strongly advise your Neighborhood Council to schedule one within the allotted timeframe. Of course, our department is always available to assist you in understanding and carring out this process.
Please feel free to contact our office or Marco Perez,
project Coordinator at 323-224-2314. We look foward to continue working with your board in support of the goals and objectives of the neighborhood council process.

Sincerely,
Greg Nelson
General Manager

The L.A. Times repeatedly libels Councilman Pacheco, and never properly corrects the record.

As Nick has explained very clearly over and over again, you knuckleheads, it was Xavier Becerra and his operatives who caused all of the problems. Becerra is the one who inappropriately squeezed the donors for Nick's non-profit. Becerra and Ricardo Torres are the ones who sent out the truthful attacks on Villaraigosa. And Becerra arranged for Martin GutieRuiz and CAL Inc. to turn over the computer phones purchased with public funds to Mario Solis -- after Becerra used the system to fairly attack ADV.

Becerra screws Nick again, and leaves him holding the bag.

After Nick clobbers that sissy in the City Council race, he should take out traitor Becerra next.

Give me a break! We all know damn well Antonio and Jose knew what little Alvin Parra was up to. Thanks Steve Hymon LA Times for stating the facts.

downtownnews.com

Trouble is, Huizar does not yet seem to know the district all that intimately, despite having grown up in Boyle Heights. In particular he offers few specifics about the portions that fall in Downtown: Skid Row and parts of the Historic Core and the Fashion District are enormous communities and each will influence the future of the city. With Huizar's strong interest in city planning, we expected more.

Uncomfortably, it is clear that one factor - though by no means the only dynamic - in the large number of endorsements is that people are a little afraid to go against popular new Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. It is commonly accepted in local political circles that some endorsers are at least in part making a peace offering after having backed former Mayor Jim Hahn in the last mayoral election.

As always, the impotent voices of the Nick Pacheco campaign are waging an impressive battle here, on this blog, while the Huizar folks are out walking precincts and raising money.

It's as if the 200 regulars on this site are CD14 voters. Or that they can somehow raise money for Pacheco.

Alas, the only victory that will impress the powers that be is on November the 8th, and I'm afraid one's cleverness on this blog will matter little to the voters in El Sereno.

Saca pushes for U.S. immigration reform

By PETER PRENGAMAN
ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES -- Salvadoran President Tony Saca urged Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa to support his request to President Bush to allow undocumented Salvadorans to remain in the United States while the country recovers from Hurricane Stan.

Saca said he made the request in a letter to the president last week. He discussed the issue with Villaraigosa during an hour-long meeting Friday at a downtown hotel.

The two also discussed broader immigration reform, Saca told reporters after the meeting. Saca said the mayor "made it clear he understood the concerns," but didn't elaborate.

Villaraigosa, a Democrat and Los Angeles' first Latino mayor in more than 130 years, did not speak with reporters. Calls to his office seeking comment late Friday were not immediately returned...

Rejecting the request of Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa for more time to address their concerns, members of the Animal Defense League announced plans Friday to demonstrate today in front of the mayor's Mount Washington home.
In an e-mail to members, league officials said they decided to take their anger over the issue directly to Villaraigosa's neighborhood.

"Activists will stress the fact that Antonio Villaraigosa has refused to fulfill his promise to fire Guerdon Stuckey," the release said.

"According to Nestor Rodriguez, executive director of VFC, this year VFC contracted The Wow Factor to handle the event and planning under the company LAHABANA CABARET. He contracted with the hotel catering to handle the food (Deauville provided food at cost).

Part of the problem, the hotel says, is that two levels of tickets were sold -- one level guaranteeing seating and dinner and a second providing only cocktails. Hotel owner Belinda Meruelo said, ``Seating and food was only for 700 people. If more people attended, I was not paid and that's not my problem. If you had stayed until after midnight you would have seen all the food. I did a wonderful job giving those people that went my best services. I gave them food at cost and this is not the Ritz.''"

But not all the revolutionaries were favorably impressed. In mid-1958 one of the rebels was wounded and made his way to a Dr. Hector Meruelo in the nearby town of Cienfuegos. The good doctor patched him up and a few weeks later informed him that he was well enough to return to Che's column.



"No, doctor," the boy responded. Please be discreet with this because it could cost me my life, but I've learned that Che is nothing but a murderer. I'm a revolutionary but I'm also a Christian. I'll go and join Camilo's column (Camilo Cienfuegos) --but never Che's." [22]
