More Reasons We Need To Vote "NO" on Prop. R

First of all, nice to see Officer Landry back from vacation at the City Council meeting today. He's very inspiring. But let's talk about yesterday's articles in the LA Times and LA Daily News on President of LA Ethics Committee, Gil Garcetti and his philanthropic donation to Councilmember Eric Garcetti. [In case you missed my Public Comment this morning on TV 35, here is a transcript. And you can watch the re-run at 7:30pm and 12mid on City TV 35. Nunez hasn't killed that, yet.]

ZD: From yesterday's LA Times article (www.LATimes.com, 10/17/06). "Shouldn't the President of the LA Ethics Commission, of all people, abide by the panel's own rules for campaign giving?" The Los Angeles Ethics Commission President, Gil Garcetti, was fined for making an "improper" political contribution to his son, LA City Council President Eric Garcetti.

"Ethic commission members [especially the President] are prohibited from making contributions in City races."

President Gil Garcetti has a rock-solid alibi, though: " My wife said, 'sign here' and I didn't notice what the check was for." EXCUSE ME!!! That's even worse than admitting you are Eric's dad and simply couldn't resist supporting your son's campaign. However wrong and just as bad a violation, now Inspector General Zuma Dogg has to be concerned that the President of LA's Ethics Commission is signing checks without even knowing what they're for. I'll tell you what, don't look and sign one to "Zuma Dogg". I won't tell the newspaper. Laura Chick: Are you reading this, sweetie?

In case you needed a reason to Vote "NO" on Prop. R, I think this says a lot about the shadiness and corruption running rampant trusted City Council, and when you read my previous articles on how shady the whole Prop. actually is (www.zumadogg.blogspot.com), only a sucker or developer would vote "yes".

Yea Zuma... the whole $500.00 paid for 3 fucking lawn signs you god damned idiot. How do you think the ethics commission found out? BECAUSE ERIC REPORTED IT!

There is much to attack about prop r, but heis isn't it. Your a fool who will write anything anyone gives you without asking the question "why did they give me this?" oh, and you regurgitate the newspapers.

It remains a mystery to me why the president of the Ethics is Daddy Garcetti, when his son is prez of the clowncil. Given that both EG and GG are well educated and articulate...I still can't believe GG's remarks about him mistakingly signing a check that his wife handed over to him. EG and GG purport to be progressive, liberal minded, pro-women men and end up implicating EG's mom. Is Gil saying that his wife tries to trick him on a regular basis by giving him checks that he has not accounted for. In addition, their family is supposed to be some liberal, self-efficient haven...so I doubt that the Mr. and Mrs. do not have their own separate checking accounts. In addition, where is Eric in this whole mess. Why did he not have his political staff catch this during campaign contributions? Not after...then report it (as CD 13 4:06 staffer points out). Even more insulting, is why EG has not stood up for his mom in this case and publically called out his dad for a horrendous mistake that has charactized EG's mom and family as artifices of the progressive sex relation camp. Eric has been takin major blows this year and needs new management staff at all levels to give him better advice.

Hats off to you ZD for taking it to him and the rest of the clowncilmembers. Maybe you can go attend an Ethics meeting and get Gil on Zuma TV.

Take a look at who Kaufman Downing LLP's clients are....who pays their bills. The money trail goes higher than the Clowncil. It goes up into the State Assembly as well and I'm not talking about the Speaker.

It's not only voting No on R, but NO on anything any Clowncil member or the Mayor endorse.

Zuma Dogg you're bigging to get on people's nerve with your self congratulating attitude. Get over yourself. Yes, you do go after the questionable things but HUMBLE people don't continue to pat themselves on the back like you do and you've lost support because of that.

Matt Dowd is a complete moron.Take a shower, shave, get a haircut and go to the dentist. You're beginning to look like one of the homeless people on 6th in Skid Row. What people are asking is why aren't these guys, Matt, Michael, Zuma finding jobs and working? Matt's attitude in clowncil is disgraceful yet hilarious. He acts as if he owns the camera telling them how to shoot him (wide frame) walks around as if he's owner of a bar establishment. Get a life, get a job, get some balls and start acting like a man!!!

Someone should ask Gil if, when he was the District Attorney, his office ever accepted the "I didn't know what I was signing" excuse.
