La Opinion picks up MayorSam chat, publishes as news
Look at the molotov cocktail the Antonio axis threw into the School Board race this morning.
La Opinion stooges for Antonio
I don't know that this will weigh a lot on the race. Bringing up drunk driving charges at the last minute seemed to backfire against Al Gore in 2000. Last minute stripclub stuff in the LA Times seemed to help Boxer against Herschensohn in 1992. In the end, only a tiny percentage of the electorate seems malleable to last minute highjinks, which always carry the faint air of desperation, as there's no gauging in whether voters will be more inclined to blame the accused or the opportunist accusor.
But hey, if this doesn't stick the way they'd like it to, maybe the Mayor could press the press the police to get Christopher arrested when he knocks on more doors in Boyle Heights this weekend?
At any rate and in any language, chalk up another "scoop" to MayorSam comments, where such chat has been floating for the past week.
