That's MISTER Mello-Roos (Smell-a-Ruse) to you, and to my friends in Cypress Pork . . . er um, I mean Cypress PARK!

Show a little respect to the man who duped Angelenos into electing a mayor who failed the bar four times.

Yes, Mello Roos for Mount Washington School. Parke's (barely) failed campaign to lay a special tax on the backs of parents and homeowners of one of the poorest communities on the Eastside, which would only benefit the area's richest neighborhood school (one the poorer kids down the hill were not allowed to attend).

Gotta love those progressive liberals and their sense of social justice.

If you ever wondered what the absence of a soul looks like, stare deep into the eyes of the photo Joseph Mailander posted here of Mr. Skeleton.

(Then watch how they follow your wallet around the room).

Parke Skelton? Sounds like a movie name like Rock Hudson or Tab Hunter. The bondage man for AV and EG?

It was originally going to be the name for the Freddy Kreuger character from horror-slash film fame, but the name was already taken.

What happened to the famous beard?

In all fairness, Parke got duped by Antonio and in turn Parke duped the public. Antonio played Parke like a Venice Room one nighter! And Parke and the Jewish elite in this City were so desperate for a "Latino Tom Bradley" that Parke saw an easy and huge paycheck(s) in Tony's pick up line. Parke just embellished this rags to riches story - using his extensive creative story telling skills - and the rest is history.

And this all happened right after the Jewish elite had lost hope in their great brown hope, Richard Alatorre - drug convictions tend to have that effect on people, it's a wonder how Parke hid Tony's drug pass. But it doesn't matter, Alatorre still runs the show and that pisses off Parke more than anything.

I love how Antonio campaigned in different parts of the city as the one for their race. He's always talking about Latinos and proud of it. Yet, if you notice there isn't one TOP Latino in his administration and he gets the white guys paying them tons of money to help him campaign. The Latinos he does pay on the side are crooks like Alatorre. The dumb Latinos let it go and don't call him on it.

The Latinos that did call him on it are no longer in politics - thanks in large part to Parke. But Antonio's self hating ways go way back to his Assembly days. As Speaker he didn't appoint one Latino to lead any major committees, despite record numbers of Latinos elected to the assembly. Although he campaigned in 1994 against Bill Mabe that "we" couldn't let that historic Latino seat go to a white guy he left the seat to Goldberg. Then he blocked Cardenas from becoming the 3rd straight Latino Speaker when he left that post to Hertzberg. Antonio has never made it a secret that he'd rather be Jewish - this he told Matea Gold when she did that LA Times magazine feature article on him when he first ran for mayor.

Antonio has always surrounded himself with non-Latinos - because Latinos see right through him and can spot his bullshit a mile away. Whites see his bullshit and think up glossy campaign brochures - no matter who is in the way.

The non-Latinos "progressives" surrounding Tony put their money on a lying, cheating inidividual thinking they were pushing a progressive cause. What their actions and money did was destroy an authentic progressive movement in the eastside.

Maybe Tony should change his name to Villarberg after his divorce is final.

Now for the real-people translation.

This is called "lying" by those of us not in government, advertising, or jail.

But thanks for the Parque-defense, Mrs. Skelton.

And, how are the rug rats? They get kicked out of any more private schools for being disciplinary problems?

I know, I know. They're just "exceptional" children.

(And so were the gunmen at Columbine!)

That's part of the mythology. Parke ran AV's first campaign for mayor, that got bushwhacked and guttered by Jimmy Hahn's operatives, and Parke didn't really know what hit him, or how to fix it.

When Villaraigosa wanted to make sure he'd win the second time around, he brought in people OTHER than Skelton. Pros, who could make it happen, and Skelton was just there for clean-up.

He's not your go-to person for a really tough campaign. He handled recent no-contests for Huizar, where Jose could have won without his name even being on the ballot - the competition was so self-destruuctive and/or damaged (See "Nick Pacheco - John Edwards" or "Alvin Parra" as proof).
