Cardenas latest CM to receive ethics fine.. And they worry about NC's?
Bernard Parks, another City councilman not so much of a fan of Neighborhood Councils was fined $4,000.00 by the City Ethics Commission for not following campaign laws.
Our favorite Ass-Clown Jack Weiss, the imbecile who started this ongoing war with Neighborhood Councils over "ethics", has been fined thousands of dollars as recently as 11 months ago for violating multiple laws including failure to report expenditures from his office holder account.
Let us not forget the big daddy of ethics violations, Martin Ludlow who had to enter a plea bargain just to avoid prison. Ludlow was forced out of City Council and was fined $105.000 by the City Ethics Commission.
I could go on but you get the point. In fact nearly 80% of the current City Council has been nailed for violating various ethics laws.
The Neighborhood Council System would have to have over 900 members with verified and upheld complaints against them to even approach the level of our City Clowncil.
In Lisa Sarno's report, that was requested by the aforementioned Ass-Clown Jack Weiss, she talks about the "alarming" escalation of incidents (and of course asks for more power). She forgets that 15-18 does not an alarming increase make, and the NC system grew in that time. In fact the "incidents" are on the decline.
Also, as a poster reminded us, the person with the most complaints in the entire Neighborhood Council System is Sarno herself. Since, according to her logic complaints indicate actual guilt and justify immediate action, by her own statements she should be fired immediately.
UPDATE** by request of a blogger, here is the report.
