Explain This To Me

Give me a LEGITIMATE explanation for why City Clowncil Members, running UNOPPOSED for reelection, have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Story: Daily News.

"It's usually money that's used to get their name out there. It could be that they have high political ambitions," he said, citing City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo, who ran for a second term unopposed in 2005 but still raised nearly $1.4million.

The money bought television advertisements, which helped raise his profile for his run for California attorney general.

ha ha ha ha

California attorney general???
that thought really scares me a lot.
thank you voters, thank you.

Walter, you're smarter than this. If money is involved, there is a political consultant around the corner. Check and see how much Parke Skelton has made this year from uncontested elections. That's why Alvin Parra has chapped his hide so much, now he has to work for that $80,000 that Huizar will be passing over to him. He actually has to work for that special order car from Detroit this year. Plus, these consultants get a good chunk of thier money from printer and mailhouses - not exactly kickbacks, but that's what they are. They've got to run campaigns to earn their keep.

Actually, I wasn't smarter than that, but now I am. Thank you.

You have also just explained why, when I was running for Mayor, someone at the Republican Party for L.A. approached me and said they might be able to "help" me, but they would need me to spend $20,000 on a poll first. I said no thanks, don't need a poll; my positions are not negotiable.

But now, duh!, I see it was a plea for "help:" give us money, so we can "support" you. Hahn apparently got -- and accepted -- the same offer.

Up yours, jealous wannabe-consultant type. First of all, my hide is permanently chapped, and I paid good money for that overhaul at a cosmetic surgeon's, so . . .

Second, I eat puny junior ad-space cadets like Alvin as an APPETIZER for breakfast. Hell, I barely had to rework my year-old "L.A. Times called Pacheco sleazy (now he's telling lies about Huizar)" mailers into same-layout, different-clips "L.A. Times calls Parra the 'Homer Simpson' of Local Politics; now he's telling lies about Huizar)" slicks.

(Which were simply "Times, yadda yadda, Pacheco, yadda, lies, yadda yadda, Villaraigosa slicks from two years earlier).

You think the CD14 kiddies on this blog know how to cut-and-paste? I oughta get a commendation from Al Gore for recycling. The graphics people do this before their first cup of coffee -- in their jammies.

Just fill in a new name, and a couple of adjectives, and BOOM, instant $80 grand and instant crippled opponent.

(Get a job as Janice Hahn's "chauffer" after this Alvino, so she can legitimately park in those blue parking spots).

Oh, and speaking of which, is the "Huizar hired a 'private chauffer'" angle the next campaign time-bomb from Parra!? Yeah, that'll get enough traction to force a runoff, compared to "I was going to pimp my wife's career to the biggest developer in town."

Nah, you call this work? Double negatory, unskilled one. Trying to resurrect Alvin Rios-Parra's wife's school board campaign after he went millionaire fishing in a leaky boat. Now, THAT was a hell of a lot of work.

This week, even without my help, Jose the Boyle Wonder is doing a press event about the rollout of major improvements to the business corridor down the street from Mr. Parra's own casita - just for spite, just for fun, just for the hellovit. In fact, it's happening so close to Homer/Alvin's home, some of the media vans are going to have to park in his driveway.

Or maybe I should have Jose close the whole damn street for the day, so he can't get home for his tuna casserole dinner?

Uh Mr. Skelton? The only reason your fool of a client hired a driver was because too many people (present company included) actually SAW the staffer who drove your fool of a client around. There were too many people who heard your fool of a client "call for the car to be brought around" and there were too many people who had first hand knowledge of these things - people who don't work for the City but who are regular, every day voters. But then again, you have a fool for a client.....

(Once again, illiterates. . . that ain't the real Parke Skelton. It's not even spelled the same way)

Are you all sure it's not a good idea for Mayor V. to take over the school district? Some of the bloggers here sound like maybe a 1.4 GPA would be a huge improvement for them.

Mrs. Parker? Are you married to the Chief?

Ah, did he promise you 8 FAKE INCHES of LITTLE CHIEF PARKER on your wedding night, only to some up short by a factor of ten, then, too?

No wonder you're bitter.

Good afternoon ladies and gentelemen (adjusts volume on radio):

Sots, are you busy? Those sots in the CQ should be busy and a rather large pre-election pow-wow was held Sunday on the top of Mount Washington. Some notable folk were there, especially Him That Thinks He Is A Kingmaker. I wonder what they discussed. Perhaps they were talking about how to spend that extra money that will be coming in from someone in the "biz", savvy?

(Adjusts sunglasses): After all, business is as business does.

They raise the money because there are lots of folks (lobbyists) out there who are just waiting for the chance to give it to them. That is, they raise the money BECAUSE THEY CAN. And because they were able to fool the public into passing Measure R, their so-called campaign reform proposition. Hah, what a farce!

Politicians should run for office, do their job, and move on into a different career, but not these days. Politicians now become career politicians. They jump from one political office to another as in political musical chairs.

Wendy Greuel has almost $2,000,000 in her War Chest - War Chest for what? The rumors are that she eventually wants to be Mayor and try running against her without $2,000,000 of your own.

Want to see if you can keep her from reaching that political musical chair? Then, if you live in Council District 2, go to the polls and write-in DAVID CAIN for COUNCILMEMBER.

Want to vote early in CD2? Then, go to the closest library and write-in DAVID CAIN for COUNCILMEMBER.

Wendy says she is spending some of her many dollars on sending out mailers. What for? Is she worried about a poor little old write-in candidate? Of course she is. His grassroots campaign might even challenge her; help give her that challenge, and go to the polls and write-in DAVID CAIN for COUNCILMEMBER.

If you want to put a real kink in the developers' path to housing glory in the city of LA, then, vote against the developers' best friend, Wendy Greuel, by voting for this write-in candidate by writing in his name, DAVID CAIN for COUNCILMEMBER.

Vote for the bee farmer who lives in Tujunga! Vote for the fellow who has no machine behind him and who has never and will never see the inside of a developer's pocket. Vote for DAVID CAIN for COUNCILMEMBER by writing in DAVID CAIN for COUNCILMAN.
