Zuma Dogg Weekend Update ("The Shady Report") For Week of 2/24/08

2/24/08 5:21 PM: "We will win Ohio!" - Barack Obama at Toledo Rally

The river of shadiness and corruption never seems to stops flowing downstream. So as I am always preparing the next round of stories, I want people to keep in mind previous stories from the past week. I know people don't have a lot of time to click on a bunch of stories all over the net, so here is one link to all of these stories that made it on the ZD radar this week:

PLUS, cast your vote on the poll question, "Do You Want Mayor Villaraigosa To Be Re-Elected? "Yes, re-elect", or, "No, change the batter".

I heard the Alarcons want to take all the federal, state and city dollars and throw it out of helicopters over the low-income areas of the city. That's the Alarcon fiscal stimulus package. Just dump the money out of a helicopter and into the streets for the people to grab. More direct and more efficient.

Mr. Borda is the Founder of Esperanza Charities. He is business partners with (Evie Romero)a caltrans renter. Is she disabled, poor, in need of housing?

****
Then-Caltrans Director James W. Van Loben Sels enunciated this same logic in a May 1995 memo. After a Los Angeles Times expose uncovered dozens of unneeded houses still in agency hands, the local Caltrans office argued they should hang on to all of them, presumably to play if safe in case the freeway path changed and they would have to pay top dollar for land they just unloaded at rock-bottom prices. Loben Sels disagreed: “It is imperative,” he said, “that Caltrans divest itself of any property not absolutely required. We should be looking at reason to dispose of, rather than retain property.”

He seemed to have won a half-victory. The 21 surplus houses have a market value of $5.7 million.

The majority of homes that Caltrans parted with were in South Pasadena and even there controversy shadowed it.

A dozen of them were released in a single batch to a non profit called Esperanza Charities, which had proposed using the structures for developmentally disabled tenants. Two homeowner groups and South Pasadena in 1997 sued to block the deal, claiming it lacked environment review, good judgment for the neighborhood and smart business practice since selling them en masse produced less than selling them individually.

In the end, Esperanza capitulated, making only two of the 11 in South Pasadena for disabled tenants. Despite speculation that Esperanza converted the homes to market-rate, all of them remain fixed in the affordable range, according to Joseph Borda, the charity's founder. “The houses were in horrible shape when he bought them,” he said.

Hillary and Abe...
Hillary Clinton gets elected President and is spending her first night in the White House.

The ghost of George Washington appears, and Hillary says, "How can I best serve my country?"

Washington says, "Never tell a lie,"

Ouch! Says Hillary, I don't know about that.

The next night, the ghost of Thomas Jefferson appears...Hillary says, "How can I best serve my country?"

Jefferson says, "Listen to the people,"

Ho! I really don't want to do that.

On the third night, the ghost of Abe Lincoln appears...Hillary says, "How can I best serve my country?"

Lincoln says, "Go to the theater."
