Wacko Jacko Strikes Again
Tuesday's meeting brought on a full on pissing match between him and Janice Hahn. They were discussing LAPD overtime at the airport
and Weiss said something about how the LAPD should take over, that it's a proven fact they are the only ones who could appropriatley respond to an attack "when" it happens. He was going off about that issue - which is his favorite - and then Janice Hahn took the mic.
"You know Jack, I don't know why you have to keep harping on this issue. You lost when this issue came to council, and you lost when this issue went before the voters. It's been proven that the airport police are the most qualified so it's time to move on..."
Then Weiss got back on the mic. "Yes Ms. Hahn - and that's what I'll call her - Ms. HAHN - you need to not take things so personal. I'm not concerned about feelings, I'm concerned about public safety" blah blah blah
To which Hahn gets back on stating, "Jack - you know what with ME it is PERSONAL, it's all personal" blah blah blah
Then, there was the Reyes/Smith exchange....They were honoring LaBonge's COS Kathy Irish when Ed Reyes pushes his button. He stands up and says "I know that some of my colleauges want to take away presentations, but I think it's important to honor people such as yourself who have served the city for so long..."
Then Greig Smith presses his button, stands up and says "Umm yes, I think that Mr. Reyes is refering to me, and usually I wouldn't stand up, but this time I feel compelled to say something"
Then Weiss and Smith start talking to each other as Padilla is asking what items the councilmembers would like called special. Weiss is so busy talking that he misses his item.
Then Weiss starts yelling "did everyone see what Padilla tried to do? He tried to pull a fast one so that I couldn't call my motion special!!!"
Jack -- Get a fucking clue. Pay attention. Do your job. Shut your trap. And pull your head out of the Mayor's ass.
