Saturday Scrum

Issue 1: Glory Days / Rockygate

How can you tell if a lawyer is lying? His lips move. Rocky Delgadillo, the City Attorney running for Attorney General has told people over the years that, in the words of the L.A. Times, "he made it out of his Eastside neighborhood by winning a football scholarship to Harvard University, where he was an Academic All-American before going on to become a professional football player." Turns out that what he meant to say all these years was, again in the words of the L.A. Times, "he never played in a pro football game and . . . his Harvard financial aid was not an athletic scholarship . . . ."

Issue 2: How Do You Say "Hypocrite" In Spanglish?

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa says speaking English in the United States is “common sense" and Congress should worry about "real” problems. This is the same man, you may recall, who responded to the President's State of the Union Address, on behalf of the Democratic Party, in Spanish.

Issue 3: Someone Wasn't Paying Attention In Corporations Class

In an effort to explain why he should control the LAUSD, Villaraigosa told NBC Channel 4's reporters, " Part of why we have a lack of accountability is we have seven school board members that are running the district instead of a superintendent running the district. If you went to a business, the board of directors do not run the company. The CEO and president runs the business."

Actually, Mr. Mayor, California Corporations Code Section 300 states, "the business and affairs of the corporation shall be managed and all corporate powers shall be exercised by or under the direction of the board." Plus, if his proposal goes through, how many people will be looking over the new superintendent's shoulder? Let's see: the Mayor himself; 15 City Council Members; and the mayors of what, 26 other cities?

Also, last time I checked, there actually is a Superintendent. His name is Romer. Does that ring a bell, Mr. Mayor?

Issue 4: Don't Like Montanez or Padilla? Vote Brown.

Someone recently asked me whether to vote for Montanez or Padilla -- and no, it wasn't my imaginary friend, Mr. Krendelfarb. I could only recount someone else's great quip from the mayoral general election: it's like chosing between Lyle and Eric Menendez. It turns out, there actually is an alternative candidate for whom you can vote: Pam Brown, a economics professor at Pierce College. Alas, I don't think she has any website. And some of you might be scared by the L-word: she's a Libertarian. But you do have an alternative, and if I lived in the relevant district, I would vote for her.

Issue 5: The Civics Portion of the High School Exit Exam

Remember the injunction requiring high schools to give diplomas to kids who fail the exit exam -- thereby slapping in the face all the students who worked their bottoms off to pass? Well, to their credit, lawyers for the California Department of Education pulled a clever manuver, bypassing the Court of Appeal and instead filing an appeal directly with the Supreme Court, which has decided to retain jurisdiction. So don't be surprised if, sometime next week, the Superior Court injunction is vacated.

Hey Moore...you're a FUCKING MORON.

In the primary election where Montanez and Padilla face off, there will be NO Pamela Brown on the ballot.

Why? Because only Democrats and Decline to States will have Padilla/Montanez on their ballots. There won't be any Repubs, Independents or Libertarians appearing on the ballot alongside Padilla and Montanez.

FUCKING MORON. Go run for Mayor again so we can all laugh at you...AGAIN

And you, sir, are clearly some kind of a genius to infer, from my having mentioned the existence of a Libertarian candidate, and having stated her party afffliliation, that I must not know the difference between a primary and general election. With powers of deduction like that, you should consider becoming a detective.

Memo to Mayor Mecha: The "real" problem is that these hordes of illegals DON'T speak English to begin with and don't have a need to in LA. They shouldn't even be here !!

Take over LAUSD and build all the shiny new schools you want to, but they will still suck and we'll be having these same conversations 5, 10 years from now.

If any of you ever applied, or went to an Ivy League you would know they do not give athletic scholarships per se. So if you are lucky enough to get into one of the ivy leagues, and of course you are an athlete in a particular sport they have and you will participate in, they find money for you to attend.

Now for the second point, you can be on a pro team and never play in a game. Usually if that's the case, you quit.

It's incredible to me that illegal when it is used with alien or immigrant does not mean wrong...It is illegal to use cocaine, murder, steal, drive over the speed limit, not send your children to school, spank your children, leave small children alone without supervision, write precriptions-unless you are a licensed physician, hit a person or another auto and run, etc. I could go on and on. But sneak over the border into the United States? No.

Someone asked you who to vote for. Since she wouldn't be in the ballot and CANNOT be voted for by the person who asked the question, you became a FUCKING MORON. I mean shit...look at all that you've accomplished...becoming a never was.

Obviously Mr. Moore was not in attendance at the debate last night that was held in Sylmar or he would not be thinking such a thing. Unless he really is a moron. I've never heard such bad answers to questions.

She's not quite ready for prime time politics.

There was one time when Montanez and Padilla locked eyes and I thought they were going to laugh, but of course they didn't.

I think Rocky should give back his Heisman Trophy, and the Gold Glove award he won when he played first base for the Yankees, and the gold medal he won for breaking the World Record in the 100 meter dash in the Olympics.

And to think that he gave it all up when he decided he would rather save the life of a five year old every day.

Uh Oh! I bet that Barak won't want to be on Rocky's presidential ticket anymore.

The big lie was not about a football scholarship, or having played professional football (those were "little" lies) - the big lie was the phony claim to Academic All-American status in Martindale-Hubbel - this means that Rocky has been lying about himself ever since he graduated from law school - if not before.

The real issue here is whether Sister City is worth a damn when Walter Moore is the primary poster of its coverage of civic affairs.

And the real answer is "no"!

If posted on this site a few times about Rocky. I worked at O'Melvny while Rocky was there and I can tell you that despite what Rocky claims, he was NOT an entertainment attorney. Moreover, Rocky was at O'Melvny less than two years. That 2 years was the totality of his legal pratice prior to becoming the City Attorney.

The point is this: Rocky is a horrible City Attorney because he has not legal experience to speak of. He spent more time at Rebuild LA than he spent at O'Melvny and it shows.

Rocky is a habitual liar. More lies will come to light.

Rocky Delgadillo is now a proven liar. It is written in the book. And there are a few more ugly skeletons rattling in the closet, waiting to jump out SOON. Welcome to the end of the line, counselor.

His lying will seem petty compared to those juicy morsels. Everyone will wonder why a guy with such a massive slime trail would put himself under such intense scrutiny.

He will probably wonder the same thing, having finally awakened from this sweet stupid dream -- just in time to watch his illusory construction of a world crumble into oblivion.

Dearest Rocktard should be feeling quite queasy just about now. Run while you still can, Rocktard! Your bullshit hit the Associated Press this afternoon, and every story written about the AG race from here on out will inform the populace of your deceptions.

From here on out, you're the All American Fraud.

How can Rocky expect people to vote for him when in his own office a female attorney sued and won? I mean c'mon he's the city attorney. Lying as a city attorney is bad news for Rocky. What else is he hiding? He really doesn't have a record of going after the wrong doers but he does have a record of corruption and taking money from those he was suppose to prosecute. LA has enough corruption with our politicans. We don't need to promote them.

Press Release from R. Dipshittilla

The lies in the LATimes are part of a conspiracy designed to stop Team 1600 from reaching its goal of the White House. But Mr. Dipshittilla will not be stopped from reaching his goal - just like the time he ran the ball back for a 200 yard kickoff return for the Hamilton Tigercats - nothing will stop him. Do you hear, nothing!!!

Everybody should've seen this coming 3 years ago when the MetNews questioned his status as City Attorney.

The charter requires that the City Attorney be "a member in good standing" of the California Bar for the 5 years prior to his election.

Rocktard went "inactive" while he was at Rebuild LA, and while he was Deputy Mayor for Riordan. This was within the 5 years prior to his election in 2001.

If an attorney is "inactive" he is NOT a member in good standing. He can't just go right into any court in the state and make an appearance. He has to pay "active" dues which are higher than "inactive" dues.

Because of that, he should've been removed as City Attorney. The problem was, Bill Lockyear didn't care, and the PC press (before they started going Lewinsky on AV) didn't want to cover the issue.

Even an alleged smart guy like Erwin "CrossEye" Chemerinsky said Rocky should remain as City Attorney because he was "qualified" by going to Harvard and Columbia. Whatever!

Well, now it does seem that Rocktard's lies and half-truths are coming back to haunt him.
