Is the end near for Ludlow?
Today, the LA Times is picking up the same story. This is despite frequent denials by the County Fed's spokesperson to the Sister City, even as late as Thursday evening.
Should Ludlow be forced out, we hear waiting in the wings to take his place is Sergio Rascon of Laborers Local 300. We've been told there is an "internal campaign" on Rascon's behalf. Rascon was part of a group of labor leaders serving on city commissions during the Hahn administration who had headed up independent expenditure campaigns on behalf of the then Mayor. Former Mayoral candidate Bob Hertzberg called on Hahn to remove them from their commission seats at the time.
When President Nixon had to resign, it was left to then Senator Bob Dole to go to the White House and tell the President the time had come. Who will fulfill that role for Martin?
