Hair Cut of a Serial Killer ??

One is still recovering from the "Villar/McIntyre Love fest" this morning on what is normally the domain for anti-City Hall...and Villar rants that are the reason for my diligent listenership.

One comment that got me laughing was the comment from Mayor Villar that Doug has the hair cut of a Serial Killer.

Thus the seed was planted for an interactive, bloggin survey.

Simply "yes" or "no" to the Mayor's comments which gives you a fifty, fifty chance of actually agreeing with the Mayor on one of his public utterances.

Follow up comments also appreciated.........

Talk about someone who has too much time on their hands, is this the best subject for a blog based on a city in crisis?

Spare me the sarcastic answer if you are having a disconnect Mr. Spot.

Tony V said that to McIntyre? Jeezus. And I heard that Mac has effectively been muzzled and can only play kissy-face with Villaraitardo. Simply disgusting. Is Tony holding Doug's family hostage or something???

So how long until Tony V is forced to resign based on Federal indictments and a failed budget process forcing the City into Chapter (7, 11, 13)?

Office pool, anyone?

Even McIntyre refers to himself as a middle-aged Albino. Definitely a character. Nice though you admit you expect him to bash the Mayr and anyone associated with him, Spot.

Just proves that his ratings and that of all the rightwing screamers depend on the volume of their vitriol. Lately Kevin James seems even nastier and I doubt he'll be doing any Antonio Love-fests.

It's a silly little pixie cut. It's good he does radio and not television. Admittedly, I'm not sure what kind of hair that serial killers have, but it's hilarious that he said that.

The pixie looks better on WEndy Greuel. It just makes him look even weirder. Definitely a face and hair for the radio.

She wished. Why isn't the media reporting on it?

Gubernatorial Gumption

Winner: Gavin Newsom. S.F’s pretty-boy mayor did everything he needed to do to introduce himself to party regulars and insiders in a big way, instantly establishing his credibility as a statewide candidate. If Prince Gavin learns to turn down his constant charm offensive a notch or two, he could be formidable.

Loser: Antonio Villaraigosa. We’re still searching for the urgent, this-just-in bulletins on the big “crisis” budget talks that forced the L.A. Mayor to stiff the convention at the last minute. Tony V's already hampered by his inability to raise money for a gov’s race before late summer, and skipping what traditionally is the kickoff event didn’t help establish him as a force in the contest.

Makes me think it's not true. Like the rumor that Higby has cancer. I don't believe it until the man shrinks.

Sounds like another "ad lib" line written by the Mayor's staff, like "twiiter while Rome burns." Too clever by half.

I am liberal and I kind of enjoy Doug McIntyre at least the guy has a good (and wicked) sense of humor (including about himself)

and yes that haircut does say: I live with my mom, make my living where no one sees my face (in a studio), and potentially have things you dont want to see in my freezer

David Z., in the place to be. Aw hell yeah, and for the first time in a long, long while Zuma Dogg cannot hold back...(clears throat)...Hooooooody hooooooooooooooooooooo!

Oh my goodness, a Villaraigosa pension board appointee RESIGNS over Jack Weiss fundraiser...Gotta be careful what you dream for!

Member of Los Angeles pension board resigns
Mayoral appointee Kelly Candaele quits after inquiries about his involvement in a fundraiser for city attorney candidate Jack Weiss.

By David Zahniser
Times staff writer Phil Willon contributed to this report.
8:28 PM PDT, April 28, 2009
[Zuma Dogg comments in brackets.]

One of Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's pension board appointees stepped down Tuesday after The Times inquired about his involvement in a campaign fundraiser for City Councilman and city attorney candidate Jack Weiss -- an activity that violates the city's ethics law.

[Two other Villar's pension appointees are now being investigated by SEC over $7 BILLION police and fire pension losses in shady Wall Street investments, last year, that will force the city to the brink of bankruptcy in 2013.]

Kelly Candaele, who had been on the Los Angeles City Employees' Retirement System Board of Directors since 2005, was one of six hosts of the event Monday in Beverly Hills, according to the invitation.

The City Council voted in 2004 to bar city commissioners and board appointees from engaging in campaign fundraising activities, as a response to the investigations into appointees of then-Mayor James K. Hahn. The law prohibited those officials from calling contributors or appearing on fundraising invitations.

[ALRIGHT...STOP RIGHT HERE! Zuma Dogg CALLS for ALL the money that was raised at this fundraiser on Monday in Beverly Hills to be RETURNED! Why? People showed up and donated money because you had a (formerly) respected City of Los Angeles Mayoral Board Appointee on the invitation. KINDA an endorsement and a cause to show up to the event to meet the (formerly) honorable L.A. City Board of Directors member. SO THIS MEANS, NAMES OF ALL THE CONTRIBUTORS AT THE EVENT THAT EVENING NEED TO BE DISCLOSED; THE MONEY NEEDS TO BE RETURNED; AND MAY NOT BE RE-CONTRIBUTED. Release the names Jack, return ALL the money from that evening since it was based on an ethics violation.]

Roughly four hours after The Times asked Villaraigosa's office about the event, Candaele submitted his resignation letter, saying he had put his name on the invitation by mistake. "Although I did not raise or contribute any political funds, this is inconsistent with the ethics pledge I signed when appointed to serve," he wrote.

[HE PUT HIS NAME ON THE INVITATION BY MISTAKE??? NO WONDER THESE VILLARAIGOSA-APPOINTED PENSION INVESTORS LOST $7 BILLION ON WALL STREET LAST YEAR! THEY MAKE DUMB, DUMB, STUPID MISTAKES. (If you believe his bullsh*t reply that it was "by mistake." Oh, Boo-hoo-hoo...it's not his fault: The Pension Investing Board of Director make a boo-boo. HIS BAD!]

Two other hosts of Weiss' fundraiser hold positions with Wetherly Capital, a company that has promoted investing opportunities to two city pension boards, including the one on which Candaele served. Wetherly, known in industry circles as a "placement agent," has become a subject of interest in recent weeks for investigators looking into allegations of kickbacks at the New York state pension fund.

[Ah ha! No wonder all these Villaraigosa-appointed pension investors are funneling so much money into Jack Weiss' City Attorney campaign. They NEED Jack to win so he can keep their tracks covered. Except, TOO LATE...the SEC is looking into it now...LOL! REMEMBER...LACERS (city employee pension fund) lost SEVEN BILLION DOLLARS last year on Wall Street AND NOW, the SEC is looking into it. And I've heard it's called "pay to play" and is gonna bring down a few folks inside and connected to City Hall.]

Weiss, who is running to replace City Atty. Rocky Delgadillo in the May 19 election, will give back roughly $20,000 raised from Monday's event, said his campaign consultant Ace Smith. "Jack Weiss believes that his campaign must be held to the highest standards," Smith said in a statement.

[Is that $20,000 ALL the money from everyone who contributed at this ethics violating event, or just Villar-appointee? HEY GREAAAAAAAT...Villaraigosa appoints these clown ass turkey commissioners, who knows WHO they paid off to get the contracts, they invest fire and pension money in shady bullshit risky (shill) companies that TANKED; THEN, after Villar appoints them, they funnel money to Jack Weiss. WHO SAYS WEISS AND VILLARAIGOSA AREN'T TODAY'S "BONNIE & CLYDE?" (Or "Bonnie & Bonnie.")]

Weiss' opponent, Carmen Trutanich, said the councilman should have known better and took action only after getting caught. "He got caught with his hand in the cookie jar," he said.

Top advisors to the mayor, upon learning of the violation, requested that Candaele submit his resignation, a Villaraigosa aide said. In a statement, the mayor described Candaele as an upstanding leader who made "an honest mistake."


Weiss' fundraiser occurred just days after The Times reported that two other Villaraigosa pension board appointees, Sean Harrigan and Elliott Broidy, had received letters from the Securities and Exchange Commission seeking information on any income they have received from companies doing business with their agency. They serve on the Los Angeles Fire and Police Pensions board. The SEC also asked Broidy and Harrigan for information on their communications with Wetherly and two other companies linked to the New York pension probe.

New York Atty. Gen. Andrew Cuomo filed an indictment last month against onetime New York pension official and political consultant Henry Morris. Wetherly and the firm Morris worked for, Searle & Co., have shared fees for deals at three major pension funds in California. Wetherly representatives said the firm is cooperating with investigators.

The Weiss fundraiser was at the home of Richard Ziman, an unpaid advisor to Wetherly Capital. Ziman and his wife were listed as hosts, along with Wetherly's managing director, Dan Weinstein. A Wetherly representative said Weinstein did not attend the event.

Weinstein and other Wetherly employees have contributed $54,700 to city candidates since 2002, including at least $1,500 to Weiss, according to the city Ethics Commission. Wetherly clients have contributed at least $12,750 to Weiss.

[See...all the clowns who just lost $7 BILLION in a pay-to-play Wall Street scandal; who are now being investigated by SEC over the biggest financial bamboozle-bankruptcy loss IN CITY HISTORY...AND MOST LIKELY U.S. HISTORY -- ARE BACKING JACK WEISS FOR CITY ATTORNEY!!!]

A day after attending the fundraiser, Candaele voted with colleagues to require that placement agents be identified when representing firms seeking contracts with the City Employees' Retirement System.

[A day late and $7 billion dollars SHORT to cover up with your certain to be caught up in the SEC investigation puppet city attorney candidate.]

Wetherly spokesman Daniel DelRe said Tuesday that he didn't immediately have names of firms Wetherly represented before the city employees' pension board since 2006. Companies listed as clients on Wetherly's website have secured multimillion-dollar commitments from the board in recent years. It was not clear if Wetherly helped get those deals.

Candaele said that he wasn't sure whether he had met with Wetherly managers on city business but that his support for Weiss was "totally unrelated" to the firm.

[Again, no one is sure...everyone is making an honest mistake...no one did ANYTHING wrong and NO ONE will be carried away in FEDERAL handcuffs over the pension investigation. And it has NOTHING to do with grocery store investments, or the former Ralphs grocery owner (Ron B.) and Ari Swiller is feeling totally Zen, and none of this will tie back to Jack Weiss or Antonio Villaraigosa, and Villar's gubenetorial dreams are not only completely over at this point. And I didn't tell you so about any corruption with pension commissioners and didn't feel the pension investments were THE BIGGEST thing going on in the city that turned out to be bigger than a $50,000 lactation class.

I think the point was that McIntyre didn't hate on Antonio to his face more than the haircut. But it sure generates a lot of garbage too, next zuma dogg will post on this thread too with his minute by minute account of his sad life from Twitter so we'll feel sorry for him and think he's the messiah and give him money.

But I don't believe that someone who has to literally sleep on the street and bed for meals is dumb enough to not look for a job even at a fast food joint, anything.

With Americans like this no wonder the illegals have come to fill the gaps.

Although they're staying home or going home in droves now with the economy and that's good. We don't need unemployed illegals hanging around. But since we can't keep them all out whatever we do I have come around to thinking we should formalize them somehow, so we could at least keep track of them for our own safety.

Not original material. The Mayor stole Wendy Greuel's line about Doug from the political ADA roast. She is the one who threw out the "Serial killer hair cut" over a month ago...

Funny then. Still funny now.
