Ludlow was the most arrogant ass making his speech when he resigned. all the newspapers slammed him for having the audacity to use quotes from Martin Luther King Jr. He should have been more humble and apologetic but no just like our arrogant Mayor he was beneath him. I hope the FEDS fry his butt and all those who took advantage of others people's hard working money. Ludlow is nothing more than a criminal in a suit.

The Feds need to investigate every politican who used those unions to help them during election. Antonio has those union people all over the city and especially on weekends. Wonder who was paying them cause I heard they were definitely getting paid. also, antonio had all those phone banks being uses as well. Again, isn't that against ethic violations????

How about that felon, Martin Ludlow King, claiming that MAV will be a good President?

Chutzpah: campaigning for the only guy that can pardon him.

(Unless, of course, Martin will settle for just a letter from Antonio written on his behalf).

Ludlow wasn't the only one they were after. It was not a "witch hunt" as many in the black community seem to believe.
I hope Martin does not use the church and his father in law as a vehicle to cry foul. During his campaign, he didn't want to have anything to do with the black establishment,instead he relied on AV and labor to do it all for him. He got some black support but could care less about the support that really mattered. After he won, he tried to screw those folks in the establishment but it backfired.
He got what he deserved. Jail time would be better. What kind of role model is he for other young folks in labor who want to follow his lead. A bad one.

They might have fired Parke - just window dressing - but Parke was still on the County Fed payroll - for hundreds of thousands, some say millions of dollars.

Once Ricardo Torres gets to depose Parke, we'll see if he was really fired or not.

He got busted, you dumb fuck. Don't you think that looks bad on the black community. How do you think the Latino community looked when Mike Hernandez and Richard Alatorre got busted red handed with cocaine. How do you think the Latino community will look once Antonio gets fried.

Oh and if you want even more specifics - Martin stole an election. Democracy went right out the window - don't you think that is screwing over the Black community - or for that matter, the L.A. community in general.

The jig is up, stop drinking your kool aid. The way Martin is talking, this is just a mole hill on Mt. Everest. Everyone who knows Antonio knew this day will come.

IS VILLARAIGOSA NEXT?

READ ON FROM LA TIMES:

"Sources said Thursday that a former administrative assistant to Humphries and a former bookkeeper for Local 99 have told investigators that they were directed by Humphries to put on the union payroll five people referred by Ludlow.

Sometime in December 2002, Ludlow and a political operative named Gregory Akili appeared at the Local 99 office with a list of five job descriptions, their terms and how much the positions were to pay, the sources said.

The monthly salaries ranged from $2,600 to $5,400 and were contained on a spreadsheet given to the two Local 99 employees.

At that time, it was made clear that Akili would be one of the people hired, so he was put on the payroll, sources said.

Akili, currently a political organizer for SEIU Local 1000, has previously worked for other Democratic candidates, including as a paid campaign consultant for Villaraigosa's unsuccessful 2001 campaign for mayor.

Akili did not return phone calls seeking comment this week."

From the ongoing investigation:

Marco Palma threatens a sitting SEIU Local 99 Board member and advices him "Not to ask too many questions."

Marco Palma is a longtime Antonio operative, who had the title of campaign manager but really was too high to manage his assembly campaign. He is also Antonio's compadre.

Aldo Palma, Marco's son and Antonio's godson, is one of those on the list given to SEIU by Martin Ludlow.

Word is that Aldo was getting paid to work Ludlow's campaign but there is proof that he never worked this campaign in District 10, but instead worked the campaign in District 14 - the one his godfather was running in.

These two 2003 campaigns are about to be connected because of Martin's talking and a paper record. Essentially, labor was running two campaigns with the same stolen funds.

Parke's subpoena is already prepared, soon to be followed by a subpoena for Antonio. Loose lips sink ships and dumb fucks give damaging tips. Parke, you should have muzzled Ludlow a long time ago. Wonder why Maria Elena isn't the Secretary Treasurer yet? Just look into what's being said in this investigation - it will lead back to Andy Stern and the international SEIU, right after Antonio goes down.

The interesting thing about the posters here is that they have been stating for months ever since last year how corrupt some of our politicans were and no one listened. They posted the crap Antonio was up to with the unions during his campaign and no one listened. Everyone thought it was CD14 anti-AV people, but we now know they were right. Yes definitely Antonio has his people planted everywhere in NC's, meetings, organizations etc. etc. He's a control freak and wants to know what is being said. He's a paranoid little napoleon syndrome dictator.

Hacopian, Shallman, Griego, Taylor and Skelton. The subpoenas are on the way. Are you ready? You better have your stories straight, especially you Parke.

Sample deposition questions:

How many labor campaigns have you done Parke?
Do you have your tax records on the income received from these campaigns?
Do you have your employee records?
Will your employees be able to corraborate this testimony?
What role does Steve Barkan have in your operations?
During the 2003 campaign, did you ever meet with Tom Newberry?
Your ex-wife Allison Morgan, according to you, is one of the most prolific political fundraisers in the State, how much money has she raised from unions?
Did you or someone for your team ever tell a former candidate for county assessor that "you don't do white guys, just minorities women and gays?

Be careful how you answer Parke, other people are already talking.

Sighs.

Just think all of this could have been swept under the rug because of a DWP contract and a large campaign contribution.

I wish Bradley was still mayor. Mayor Villaraigosa, Oops I mean Mayor Riordan is fucking things up right now. And I said most of this stuff druing the elections about Ludlow especially the investigations as a Councilman with the MTA property. This was the main reason why he was transfered to run the County Fed of Labor to delay and ultimetely make disappear those accusations cause they'll lead right to Antonio even Riordan. Because this would be the type of amo Hahn would have used to win the election turn the landslide into a close race between the younger and older voters.

Mayor Sam, I am convinced that you are nothing more than a Progressive Limosine Liberal in a Republican Body.

Meathead!
