Zuma Dogg Exclusive on Trutanich Transition

This morning I was tipped off by a private Mayor Sam snoop that Zuma Dogg was inolved in a high level conference call with City Attorney-Elect Carmen Trutanich.  According to my high level snoop Mr. Dogg and Mr. Trutanich reviewed some breaking details on the coming Los Angeles Reformation, that is the escorting out of the City Attorney's office of a one Mr. Rockard J. Delgadillo and the impending disinfecting of that office by Mr. Nuch.

You could read the full details at Zuma's blog however the most significant item is that Trutanich has designated the Republican-Democratic Armenian- Jewish duality of Roberts featuring former District Attorney Robert Philobosian and former California Assembly Speaker Bob Hertzberg to head up the transition team and to make all the major hiring decisions.

I can hear the dum dums crying now.

Hey... I told you who I was texting... Higby to let him know I got there ok, he was my nagivator on the trip.


And besides, I only discussed MY conversation with Tru, not yours. That information remained classified until you published it.


So there.

Hey Rocky Delgadillo,

I really hope you are not a jury tamperer, son.

What if I get a judge to have a look at a juror name in a special case?

Would I find your paid helper M.D.A, who sits on a certain city agency?

M.D.A. is NOT the initials for Jerry's charity, but a paid worker on Rocky's first campaign, who may have sat at least ONE very special jury for Rocky, who said they were a "babysitter" -- with NO connections to the city (doing the prosecuting) when the judge asked for any conflicts.

I think we may have found a conflict Rocky. I think the name of that juror is under YOUR name under "expenditures" on the ethics site.

Now move out of the way, bitch, and let the People do their job, which will never again include you.

And hope I get too busy to hire an attorney.

BUT IF THERE ARE ANY ATTORNEYS WHO WOULD LIKE TO MOVE FORWARD WITH INVESTIGATING ROCKY'S OFFICE FOR JURY TAMPERING, HOLLA!

Higby and Zuma are making it pretty clear they don't care much for Rocky D. Zuma especially unloading on Rocky on his blog.

Nuch needs to remove EVERYONE tainted with Rocky D.

This argument over "tenure" is ridiculous!
This is not a college campus! This is an elected City Office...and elections have consequences.

I hope Nuch listened to me.

OUT THEY GO!

I never said, "conference call" and it was not a conference call...just a call. AND, I didn't say where I got the info.

And you say, "or did he make it up?" Check my original blog post Mr. "Quick To Make Shit Up About ZD"...NO WHERE in my post do I make ANY claim as to where I got the info, because THAT doesn't matter.

All that matters is when I say it, it's true, or is about to be true, and that's all you need to know, *#$%@!

But seriously, no where did I say where the info came from. But obviously a Mayor Sam SNITCH (Snoop is too warm and fuzzy sounding) overheard ZD talking. TRUST NO ONE! LOL! Especially tenured political appointments.

ZD, It would be wonderful to see Nuch fire a whole pack of union workers but it's not happening in this lifetime. He needs that union. Probably Nuch called you to play you. Take care. Nuch will be your downfall unfortunately. You finally met someone who will work you sillly and throw you to the lions. I hope it doesn't happen but I fear it will.

Alright y'all...here's how I came up with the Nuch scoop.

I called Nuch today, as anyone could have, because it's the phone number from his card he handed out during the campaign.

Well y'all know Zuma Dogg, and I make calls all day long to people from the mayor's office, to council, to various departments and people in the community...ZD makes the rounds.

So I called Nuch to update him on something I wanted him to be aware of.

And you know ZD, I'm always gonna try to pump you for at least a little something interesting, so when Nuch was telling me how he was looking at billboard policies from across the country and some other things he was reviewing, I simply say, "Wow! How do you read all that leagalese. You can't read every single word, yourself? You must have to have a bunch of good people helping.

He says, "Of course, it's about having a good team."

So in an attempt to dazzle ZD, right out of the gate, he says, "How about..."
"How about..."
"How about..."

describing their experience of expertise in each area.

So as he rattles the first few names off, I say, "Wait, I haven't seen this yet."

He says, "Yeah, the press release will be coming out later today."

So I hung up immediately as if I had lost my cell signal before he could tell me to hold off on blogging it.

So again, ZD gets the info, NOT because it was leaked in a press release early, or not because I was intended to have it early, but just because when you are out on the street 24/7 and on the phone you are going to bump into it. Which is exactly what happened.

If I didn't decide to just take out my phone to mention something to Nuch, which could have EASILY gone to voicemail, I wouldn't have known until I read it in the newspaper.

BUT, it DOES seem like ZD has a knack for bumping into stuff like Governor Schwarzengger. SO MUCH of THE best stuff I just hear in line at Starbucks, or sitting at the tables at the food plaza.

But again...you gotta pay the dues, to sing the blues like Steve Perry.

10:25pm, I just saw your comment, which I basically addressed in the above comment. So again, this stuff isn't orchestrated. If I didn't call Nuch, I wouldn't have had the exclusive. But regarding the union stuff and political tenure problems, that came out of ANOTHER, SEPARATE conversation I had with a second party after discussing the Nuch appointments. (They were telling me the problem he was/would be having. I heard that from the other side, LOL!)

But anyway, I believe you when you say you hope I am not being bamboozled, but don't trip person who took me to Phillipes that one time and who I said good things about Trader Joes, too. (No, not YOU person from today.)

No, I say Nuch hires ZD to blog/spin/stay "in the know" for him. I know what I'm talking about. This city needs to feel connected with their elected officials and Zuma knows how to get that done.

All hiring decisions? you mean all 5 of them? The city attorney has the power to hire just of few people of his choice, the other 895 will be there whether he likes it or not. he can't even hire his own personal secretary. Nuch is a good guy who means well, but he is truly in for a rude awakening. it's called civil service.

Also explain to him that there are 600+ attorneys in the city attorney's office and you can't just wipe them out of their jobs.

Obviously phil just doesn't comprehend things like this.

SO WHY WOULD YOU EVER TRUST HIM WITH INFORMATION YOU'RE WORKING ON?

NOBODY GOES TO THE ABSENTEE HIGBY. THEY GO TO YOU AND OTHER BLOGS. TRUSTING HIGBY ONLY WATERS DOWN WHAT YOU DO. MAYOR SAM IS NO LONGER THE TOP BLOG IN TOWN. OTHERS DO THE HEAVY LIFTING NOW.

STOP TRUSTING THIS GUY. HE ONLY USES YOU. AND IF YOU STOP POSTING ON THIS BLOG, MAYBE HE WILL GIVE YOU A LITTLE MORE RESPECT AND NOT EXPOSE THINGS THAT YOU SAID TO HIM IN CONFIDENCE.

This is why I will never understand zooma.

People give him information, then he rushes to city council and outs dennis zine for speaking with him.

Trutanich speaks with him, and zooma tells others about it.

For all of the things zooma is involved in, for good or bad, it doesn't appear that you can trust him to keep a source's name out of it.

zooma, you really need to improve on that. imagine how much information people would give you if they had confidence that you would not run to city council to blab out their names.

why in the world do you do that? don't deny it, bro. you've done this a hundred times, and this is just the latest incident. Trutanich isn't on the job even a week and you're already outing him like a gossip queen.

Higby, in order for the conversation to be high-level, it implies that BOTH ends of the call are high level.

With all due respect to zuma dogg, he is not high level.

It would be high level if, for example, Trutanich was speaking with a peer of his. Zuma dogg is not a peer of Trutanich's. Another elected official would be, for example.

The City Attty staff are exempt status, not civil service, which means they can be hired and fired at will,as stated in either the Charter or Admin Code. When Rocky became City Atty, he took Riordan's former staff that he worked with as Deputy Myr. And Hahn took most of his staff from the C.A. Office to Mayor's Office when he was elected - switch off to keep the same cronies employed.

In one of Zooma's ears, and out his mouth just a few minutes later.OH MY GAWD YOU ARE SO FUCKING RETARDED. And that's an insult to Retards.

Higby didn't "out" Zuma and Zuma didn't "out" anyone or any sources either.

Zuma and I had a date yesterday (YES WE ARE HAVING TEH HOT CRAZAY SEXAY AFFAIR) and I happened to roll up as Zuma was making his daily calls.

AS A POLITE, PROFESSIONAL COURTESY BLOGGER STYLE, he introduced me via phone to Mr. Tru, as we have never had the pleasure of meeting or speaking to each other, and we have a few friends in common. I said hello, Mr. Tru said hello, we told each other to give our respective regards to our respective friends-in-common and I handed the phone back to ZD and went to feed the meter where I was parked.

Higby was nice enough to "nag"ivate (ha ha) mine and ZD's HOT SECKS trysting place for me as I was driving, FORGOT TO MAPQUEST IT BEFORE I LEFT and AS IT IS AGAINST THE LAW TO TOUCH YOUR MAGIC iPHONE WHILST DRIVING so no GPSing for me,

And then Zuma and I went inside our LOVE SHACK and he started Mad Bloggin' while I was texting Mayor Sam to let him know I got there ok and that I was happily surprised upon arrival to get to speak with Tru'. No details of any convos. End-O-Story. So, there.

OH, I also was txting Higby about all the Random Guy On Bike (TOTALLY HAWT BOY NOT A DAY OLDER THAN 25!) Lurv I was gettin' outside while I was feeding the parking meter. ZUMA WAS THERE, HE CAN CONFIRM THIS RANDOM BIKE GUY LURVING!

(SOOO SEXXY! OMG ZD, HE CALLED ME LAST NIGHT FTW!!! He asked for my number because he wanted to invite me to "his gig" at the House of Blues (yah, right) He said he just got signed with some label Ray-J started ... i bet that's what he tells all teh hot moms. So, what I was getting inside my car to give him was my PTA BUSINESS CARD ha ha thinking he'd figger out I'm old enough to be his mother but ha... NO! ::happy dance:: PS. RANDOM BIKE GUY HUGGED, KISSED ON CHEEK AND HELPED HIMSELF TO A FREE SQUEEZE OF V-DOLL'S ASS FOR HIS EPIC THURSDAY WIN. ALSO.)

I am VERY grateful to Zuma for also putting me on the phone yesterday with the ever Amazing and Lovely Miss L.G., whom I've been needing to get in touch with for some time now, and he helped a sistah out. ZD's phone list is MAGIC.

You're the best, ZD! And thanks for being so considerate and sweet and helpful.

AND THANKS FOR ALL TEH HawT SECKSY TIMES WE ALWAYS HAVE TOGETHER.

::happy sigh::

It's good to be the V-Doll.

Yeah, even ZD got a HUGE chuckle out of "high level conversation" which I think Higby was having fun with.

Carmen didn't care that I blogged that. Again, it was just a coincidence on the timing. And YEAH, ZD DOES know how it feels to be "snooped" on, it's funny. But the REAL insiders, ESPECIALLY YOU, know ZD knows how to keep things confidential.

But overall, I should also let people know, Nuch is still the down to earth ""good guy" he appeared to be before the election. After all, he was talking to ZD and the guy is a very good listener, I have noticed.

Yeah, I'm sure that Trutanich doesn't care that a homeless man got off of the phone and immediately on the blog to blab about it.

Sure, why would a freshly elected official worry about that? Hey, ZD, why not sleep with his wife? I'm sure he'd be cool. Maybe with his daughter at the same time!

Sure, he didn't mind you blabbing about it at ALL. Just like Zine doesn't mind you screaming about things that he told you on the down low. Why would anyone thing that that's wrong? THIS is why you've sunk to homelessness and crooks like Alarcon make near $200,000 a year. HE knows how to do things on the downlow, or at least have some COMMON SENSE YOU IDIOT.
