Moving on to Measure B, a Green Party candidate has come out in opposition to the "solar" plan. 39th Assembly Green Candidate Jack Lindblad. Linblad issued a statement saying "Defeat of this green-washed, wrong-headed, top-down, anti-union, payola underwritten Proposition does not stop solar development within the City of Los Angeles. Measure B will be defeated and then we will make a real plan for clean energy and clean government."
Time Warner Cable's internet service had significant latency and intermittent outages as we reported earlier in the week. LAist posts up a statement from the cable company blaming it on hackers. Service credits will be offered on a "case by case" basis, whatever that means.
In a last minute, pre-election campaign stunt City Controller candidate Wendy Greuel has "outed" a number of businesses as "tax cheats" who allegedly owe the City hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars in unpaid taxes.

Well I did and not much there only two companies on the list came up as donors to local pols and only one still in office: CVE Development owes $130K and donated $500 to Villaraigosa. American Waste Industries owes $225K and donated $1200 to former Mayor James Hahn and $500 to past Council Member Ruth Galanter.
