"TROLL FOR DOUGH A-THON, Day Two", Even "Welfare Recipients" will donate

This is the "Great Ole United States" and thus you can "contribute" to the political discourse through the spoken word, printed prose, or through the protected act of giving, even those on the "corporate welfare rolls" can give, witness "LA LIVE".

On Day Two of the "TROLL FOR DOUGH A-THON", Mayor Villaraigosa last night attended a fundraiser host by "Anshultz Entertainment Group" bigwig Tim Leiweke,

Excerpts from David Zahniser's report on the L.A. Now Blog at the "OLD GREY HAG ON SPRING STREET".

The fundraiser at L.A. Live was (corrected to current
tense) co-hosted by Tim Leiweke, president and CEO of Anschutz
Entertainment Group, according to an invitation filed with the city’s Ethics
Commission. Three years ago, Villaraigosa supported AEG’s plan for
building L.A. with roughly $270 million in city subsidies(ie. corporate
welfareism that former Councilman Joel Wachs fought against for the
AEG's Staples Center and won

Since Villaraigosa took office, AEG has given $485,000 in contributions to
various mayoral initiatives, from a telephone tax measure on February’s ballot
to Villaraigosa’s ill-fated effort to gain control of the Los Angeles Unified
School District.

Yet there’s another interesting name on the invitation: lawyer and lobbyist
Tim McOsker. A resident of San Pedro, McOsker spent four years as chief of staff
to former Mayor James Hahn -- the man Villaraigosa defeated in 2005.

Since City Hall is all about forgiveness (Villar will only forgive
for money??),
he’s now a co-host of a Villaraigosa campaign event -–
and someone with clients ranging from AT&T to real estate developer Bob
Bisno, the man behind a proposal for 1,950 new homes on an undeveloped stretch
of San Pedro.

So for McOsker, one must "kiss the ring", in this case anty up the cash to open the door for his client.

Later as the "TROLL FOR DOUGH A-THON" continues, what did those wedding vows and smooch really cost???
