Zuma Dogg Gets the 'Big Mo'

Mayoral candidate Zuma Dogg senses growing momentum for his campaign and challenges the notion that Walter Moore, with support from talkradio hosts and about $200,000 in campaign funds, is the leading challenger to Mayor Villaraigosa.

The formerly Malibu based artist, advocate and former radio executive says that "interesting groups from within some very diverse communities" have contacted him as of late "to express their willingness to endorse and support Zuma Dogg for Mayor based on what they have seen, heard and read" in a number of published commentaries and analyses, blog posts, radio and television interviews and newspaper articles reviewing his role the last two and a half years as a sometimes racuous community advocate who appears regularly before the City Council and other bodies.

"Radio executive?" Just like all other politicians, he has started padding his resume with lies about his past.

If not true, I expect a denial from him shortly.

Aren't there any honest people left in politics?

From the LA Times:

Born in Pittsburgh and raised in Cleveland, Elliott says he has been a radio program director and consultant, making more than $50,000 a year.

He says he worked for Top 40 stations in cities across the nation, including Washington, New York and Los Angeles, where he’s lived the last 12 years.

Then he reinvented himself as Zuma Dogg.

He made his debut as a performer in 2000 on Howard Stern’s radio program. Shortly thereafter, he began performing at Venice Beach and started a cable access show.

Yeah, that's some lie I used about my radio career to pad my resume. You are some investigative journalist. I'm totally busted. "If not true, you expect a denial shortly." What kind of loser are you?

So Zuma used to have a job before he became homeless. Be careful ZD 'cause once you are unmasked and people know you, you jump the shark and won't be as much as a novelty.

You will go the way of the Dodo bird, the hula hoop, and the Gong Show.

Does anyone know if Walter Moore really went to Yale?

Why is he still allowed to campaign using Ch 35/ our taxpayer dollars? Other officials can't and are following all the rules. Must be because they think he's so insignificant he just makes a fool of himself every time he shows up. The Ethics Commission should make him adhere to the rules, though.
Even if it is a farce - can you imagine him and his ragtag band of followers running anything more than a loony bin? With his ADD screaming even on "good behavior."

Is he Dave Elliott or Salzburg, as listed on the election pamphlet?

How many aliases has he had? Is he hiding something even crazier than what we see? He admits he was fired from his paying gig because he can't hack following rules. He attracts the others like him, and LA Weekly's Stewart and McDonald admit they just used him because he makes people mad.

Does being a fool who just makes people mad qualify one as anything?

What he does is show the real motivation of anyone who "backs" him. They hope to get a rise out of the real leaders, that's all.

Funny thing is, he's even going at Walter Moore just because he's got some radio endorsements and money, and because they think he's a fool they don't want to associate with.

2:48pm, "So Zuma...careful, once you're unmasked..."

Excuse me...I've talked and blogged about my radio career since day one. The LA Times article, where I discussed it, came out in 2006 when I first showed up at City Hall. But, I'll be careful, because you say so and you are the expert.

Loser says, "He admits he was fired from his paying gig because he can't hack following rules.":

Excuse me? Where did I admit that? I don't remember that ever happening, so I certainly don't remember ever "admitting" it either. Keep trying though. I'm sure you'll soon turn the whole world against me with your estute made-up, loser-B.S.

3:54, I think we all know who this is. Only YOU can be so illogical, petty and dumb in your mindreading and attempts to link things. You continue to suffer from emotional problems.

Hey Zuma Doof - Word to the wise, don't appoint your friend Robert Vega to anythings because he always quits.

He talks a good game, but then quits as soon as work is needed.


He and his cronies Hugo Pacheco, Scott Johnson and Jose Aguilar sold us out!!!

That's great!

This guy goes from being a radio executive of some sorts to being an unemployed village idiot on the Venice boardwalk.

That's the kind of career path that will impress the voters.

It appears to be a good example of what happens when you ingest too many of the wrong substances.

It fries your brain.

So in the interest of honesty and transparency (it's difficult to trust someone who keeps changing his name and hides behind a mask) who you are, who you worked for, why you don't work for them anymore, and how your life has deteriorated so badly?

Maybe you're just one of those slimes who wants to get elected so you can enrich yourself.

SOOOO, did Zuma Dogg ever use his public access show to benefit his own campaign, thereby breaking campaign finance laws?

SOOOOOOOOO, what is Zuma Dogg using the donations for? If he is using them for his so-called campaign, is he reporting them???

These are only some of the fun questions you are going to need to answer if you are a serious candidate. Only problem is that you are not a serious candidate, so keep on talking about yourself in the third person

Go ahead and talk about yourself again.

When do candidates have to file the conflict of interest statements? It would be interesting to know where his income is from, and if he doesn't have a job how can he tell the voters that he'll work hard for them when he has no experience in working hard?

Zuma will work hard. When you live on the streets, all the time you spend in an office is wonderful.....unlike the rest of the clowns who work for the city and only work less than 11% of the day.

Pretty weak spin 8:36pm and 10:35pm.
You got NADA! Why do you just assume I won't report contributions? I have spent a lot of time speaking with the people from ethics. It's not a problem. And using public access show to benefit. And people seem to like the "ZD Venice Beach underdogg, down and out guy, but keeps on truckin'"angle. I don't play it up, but people tend to admire it, more than scoff at it.

You got NADA!

Zuma - whatever, without a campaign manager, finance chair, and organizing strategy, you will end up just like Ron Paul, all style NO SUBSTANCE.

Good luck with your .5% of the vote, go ahead and claim victory already, and don't forget to refer to yourself in the third person.

So, is Rosendahl still feeding you - literally, in council?

NADA is the amount of votes zuma will get.
