VillarSalinas: We Told You So

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who is in the midst of divorce proceedings with his wife, acknowledged he is in a relationship with a Spanish-language television reporter, according to a statement published Tuesday.

Villaraigosa issued a statement, published Tuesday by the Los Angeles Daily News, acknowledging his involvement with Telemundo newswoman Mirthala Salinas, after the paper told the mayor it was set to publish a story about their relationship.

"It is true that I have a relationship with Ms. Mirthala Salinas. As I've said I take full responsibility for my actions, and I once again ask that people respect my family's privacy. For my part, I intend to stay focused on my job, and to work as hard as I can every day to be the best mayor I can be," Villaraigosa said.

Being the best you can be at anything starts at bein gthe best at home. If you can't be the best father or husband, especially when you have great kids and a wife, you cannot be the best at anything else. This lack of reciprocation has alwyas been Antonio's hang up. Everything is about him only - Mirthala will carry the whore brand long after Antonio dumps her - just like Martha, Helen, Cindy, Jennie, Dora, Kathy, Matea, Jill, Adriana, ... the list goes on and on.

QUOTE JUNE 2005

Villaraigosa: "Any continued national prominence will hinge on how successful I am as mayor."

QUOTE#2

Democrats have seen their majority among Hispanic voters erode substantially in the past two presidential elections. Villaraigosa advises the party to "speak to America's heart" and redefine "family values" in a way that's meaningful to people's lives. Democrats can expand their appeal to Latino voters, he says. All it takes is work.

And though his two oldest daughters were born out of wedlock to different mothers, unlike him they had a father in their lives.

At a time when it was virtually unheard of for men, before 1979's Kramer vs. Kramer, he says, "I had joint custody of the children."

The girls each chose to live with him when they turned 15. Now, Villaraigosa says, all four of his children — ages 29, 27, 16 and 14 — are so close that "you'd never know my family was blended."

And the new media will make sure that American knows of Villar's sordid background.

"Absolutely not true," Villaraigosa said of the gossip. "We are not separated."

WHAT'S THAT AGAIN?
"Absolutely not true," Villaraigosa said of the gossip. "We are not separated."

LAO Apparently responding to blogger Luke Ford's allegation that the Villaraigosas had split up, the mayor told the Times last night that the entire family — himself, Corina and the two teenage children — is living at Getty House. "Absolutely not true," Villaraigosa said of the gossip. "We are not separated." He did admit to strains, but called them "ups and downs." The couple had broken up once, before he ran for mayor the first time, over his affair that coincided with Corina undergoing cancer treatment. Just who Villaraigosa spoke with last night is strangely murky. The Times attributed the comments to "an interview Thursday evening at Getty House," but the short story carries no byline. Corina was not at home at the time, the paper said. Luke has revised his post substantially since putting it up on Monday.

The letter emerged less than two weeks after Villaraigosa returned $47,000 in donations from employees of two Florida companies and their relatives.

On Sept. 27, 2004, Villaraigosa had dinner with Sean Anderson, the president of Travel Traders, one of the Florida companies, and Art M. Gastelum, a lobbyist who represents Los Angeles International Airport concessionaires. Villaraigosa said they did not talk about the airport.

The day after Anderson dined with Villaraigosa, employees of S.E. Florida Investments, which is affiliated with Anderson's firm, contributed $10,000 to Villaraigosa. Their relatives gave $3,000.

Villaraigosa collected an additional $34,000 for his mayoral campaign from employees of Travel Traders and S.E. Florida Investments and their relatives.

Los Angeles County Dist. Atty. Steve Cooley opened a preliminary inquiry April 29 into whether the $47,000 had been laundered.

Certain people have been posting on Mayor Sam for a LONG time on what a looser AV really is. We all informed you folks in Los Angeles that AV was a no good SOB; that he was a breaker of promises, of rules, and only looked out for himself. We told you of his lack of education, lack of integrity, his corruption, fixed elections, and of his extra marital affairs. We said he was a sleazy carpetbagger and womanizer. We warned you all that he would again use the mayor seat as a stepping-stone to something more. We expressed what an attention whore he would be and he was with his ugly mug plastered on magazine covers, newspapers, and TV. Some even told you of the affair long before it broke out in the Daily news. Still, none of you listened.

I hope you all feel pretty stupid. Los Angeles (and all of Americans) need to realize it is time to stop joining the bandwagon when it comes to politics. Do not support those who lack personal as well as profession integrity. They will not be the leaders we need to run our nation

I wonder how much Villar is paying Corina to keep her mouth shut!!

Does he get to keep her maiden name??

They have not spoken to each other in years! It's so comical to watch the RARE appearances of them together...they avoid each other like the plague; they NEVER have eye contact; and Villar thinks no one has noticed??? Villar tried to keep that phony, shit assed smile on his face when they used to be in public together, but his eyes belied his ugly, mean, hateful side. He is such a bastard!!! And he cares NOTHING about any of his kids...all 4 of them...NOTHING!

Corina...PLEASE WRITE THE BOOK!!!

So, the LAT says about Rocky:

AV qualifies for #1 - no doubt.

Looks like #2 is a go as well. Just look at the ethics violations for AV.

Will the LAT do the right thing and call for them both to go?

Or, will they let AV's crew pull a classic Bush maneuver and create a diversion somewhere else.

Watching Rocky news come out right around AV problems is like watching terror alerts pop up around Bush failures.

this just proves some of the suspicions I had with him displaying the traits of having been either physically abused or emotionally abused as a child or even sexually.

HE is either continuing to try to prove to himself and validate his manhood to others that he is a man through these indiscretions. Or by the mere fact that the woman is only 35 years old he is looking for a way to feel in control in a relationship since the woman is much younger , but also it might make him feel more virile at his age. Impulse control is out of wack which leads to borderline thinking and he could be trying to gain the approval of his father for having been abandoned by him, by continuing to use sex as a way to validate his manhood.

In the world where communications is no longer limited to calls from land lines or sending letters via the post office, it should be to nobody's surprise not the amount of coverage that this has gotten, but rather how well people knew right off the bat from when the announcement was made of the divorce that Salinas was the other women.

Let this be a lesson to all - when you live in the world of politics, you have no private life. That phrase is non-existent, because everywhere you go, everything you do, will be looked at and criticized on whatever level imaginable for the pure purpose of seeing if you are legit.

11:29 am,

I think more so than anything, it plays into Antonio Villaraigosa's self perceived ability to come out of any situation without any deep wounds. Almost any negative situations that come out against him, he's able to work his way through them in a manner that allows him to come out with minor wounds, but nothing that will last longer than a week. So when something as big as a divorce and an affair with a high-profile woman like Mirthala Salinas is on his doorstep, I'm sure that the first thought in his head is "ok, I know that I can handle this".

Why else would you call a press conference?! I'd say that it was to serve his ego even further, to allow him the opportunity to face the gauntlet of reporters and then come out of the press conference saying to himself "see, I knew I could do it".

And yes, if his relationship was going that bad, why didn't he just step up to taking care of business and doing everything in an honorable way - separate, divorce, and then go partner up with whoever catches his interests.

This should serve as a wake up call to himself, Robin Kramer, Jimmy Blackman, and the rest of his leadership team within City Hall that he's not Superman. He has many more weaknesses than Superman, but more so than anything, his kryptonite has more often than not has been himself.

A Bloomberg, Villaraigosa Ticket?

We now know Michael Bloomberg is seriously considering a run for the presidency, the Downtown News reports. Is the New York City mayor planning to ask our mayor to join him on the ticket? Has he already asked?

The likelihood of Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa as a vice presidential candidate in 2008 has seemed so remote as to be silly, except to a handful of fervent supporters dismissed as having lost touch with reality. The 2009 governorship had been widely seen as the Democrat's next goal. Probably achievable.

But what if Villaraigosa were not a Democrat? What if he changed party affiliations, as Bloomberg did two weeks ago? What if Villaraigosa, too, became an Independent, affiliated to neither major party? Well, then, the whole game could change. Never mind that he is one of Hillary Clinton's four national campaign managers. This wouldn't be the first time he has run two parallel agendas or betrayed a former political ally.

LATEST FROM THE DAILY...
Amid a frenzy of media coverage, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa divulged few new details today about his romantic relationship with a Telemundo newswoman but said it was a "friendship that evolved over time."
The revelation of a romantic relationship with television newswoman Mirthala Salinas came to light in a Daily News story today after the mayor had dodged months of questions about the breakup of his marriage.

Surrounded by dozens of reporters after swearing-in ceremonies for recently elected Los Angeles Unified school board members, Villaraigosa said his relationship with Salinas is a personal matter.

When asked how long the relationship had been going on, Villaraigosa said only that it was a "friendship that evolved over time."

Amid questions whether Salinas reported on the mayor while they were romantically involved, he said that about a year ago Salinas "asked to be removed" from her role in the station's political coverage.

Former CBS-2 reporter Kyung Lah was working for KNBC-TV and reportedly was having an affair with her field producer, Jeff Soto. Both are married. According to the stories I read, the two were fired not because the affair had led to any on-air or behind-the-scenes problems, but just because they were having an affair and the station considers that "gross misconduct." The producer of KNBC-TV's 11 p.m. newscast also was fired, reportedly because he knew about the affair and didn't inform upper management.

Does anybody else remember when AV was first elected to the Assembly and had a big local swearing-in at Paramount Studios?

To everbody's horror, he began his speech with a lengthy and theatrical apology for the pain and shame he had caused his family and supporters for the "affair of the heart" that he had confessed to his volunteers months earlier on the night of his primary victory. He swore he had learned a lesson and would never, never allow himself to repeat such shameful behavior.

Deafening silence until the majority of attendees had to turn to their neighbor to find out what the hell he was talking about. (Much like his press conference on the separation.)

How could Parke and all the other "brilliant" people who think they are masterminding Latino power in LA convince themselves that this guy is not an IDIOT. Forget morals, he's an IDIOT!

Who needs a mole? Hell hath no fury like the mother of a woman scorned.

At least a year? What's remarkable is how long the affair was on the down low. Spinners have probably been working overtime for months figuring out the timing of the inevitable.

I think we should all make a pledge to stop calling the Mayor by the name of Antonio Villaraigosa and refer to him as Antonio Villar. The whole reason why he had the Raigosa in his name was to "honor" the bond between him and Corina. Now that it is obviously no longer there (on top of the fact that he has the affair), he doesn't deserve the name.

I hope that Corina does go to court to change her name, and if she can, to advocate to the courts for Antonio to be forced to remove her name from his.

It was nice not to see the Mayor all over the news everyday during the commotion. Laying low- maybe even working.

BTW- Why would Huizar be anyone's selection for Mayor? Maybe it's his staffers, since there's a major free ride. As for laying-low, this guy has got it down. Re-elected, re-suming collecting city paychecks.

Waiting for campaign contributions to see whose causes he will advocate.

In CD-14 observing.

"LA Mayor in 'Relationship' with reporter"
AP Posted: 2007-07-03 19:28:08
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who is in the midst of divorce proceedings with his wife, acknowledged Tuesday that he is in a relationship with a Spanish-language television reporter.

The mayor insisted at a news conference that his relationship with Telemundo newswoman Mirthala Salinas would not interfere with his job and he pleaded for privacy for his family.

"I have had a relationship with Ms. Salinas over time. It has evolved, and today I have acknowledged that relationship," said Villaraigosa, who announced his separation from his wife, Corina, last month after 20 years of marriage.

Corina Villaraigosa filed for divorce June 12, a day after the mayor told reporters in a City Hall news conference that he took the blame for his crumbling marriage.

"I don't believe that the details of my personal life are relevant to my job as mayor," he said, speaking to reporters after attending a downtown swearing-in ceremony for school board members Tuesday.

Villaraigosa had previously declined to comment, but issued the statement to the Los Angeles Daily News after the paper told him it was set to publish a story about his relationship with the Telemundo newswoman.

Salinas moved off the political beat, which includes coverage of the mayor, about 11 months ago, Telemundo spokesman Alfredo Richard said. He said the station wouldn't comment on employees' personal lives.

Messages left after hours by The Associated Press with Telemundo, whose parent company is NBC Universal, was not immediately returned.

Corina Villaraigosa declined comment Tuesday through the mayor's office.

She seeks spousal support and primary physical custody of the couple's 14-year-old daughter, Natalia, with visitation terms to be worked out with the mayor, according to the filing.

They also have an 18-year-old son, Antonio Jr., and the mayor has two adult daughters from previous relationships.
