"The Albert Robleses of Southeast Los Angeles"
The last time I saw these two "Albert Robleses" was in Downtown LA's United States District Court.
Albert T. Robles
(top photo) had been found guilty of multiple counts of corruption
in the City of South Gate and was awaiting sentencing, meanwhile his defense attorney was Albert Robles (lower photo), former candidate for District Attorney, was attempting to get his client off with some dubious, verbal legal nonsense that drew a quick retort from the presiding judge.
One would of thought that with the conviction of Albert T. Robles, that the "Robles Machine" would fade away, but to the contrary, the machine has been entrusted to the likes of "Little Albert" and others (Angel Gonzalez, Chacons, Pedroza, and others) in Southeast LA who were taught by the likes of Lou Moret
and Richard Alatorre.
The machine shows its face in the form of political mailers that make outlandish charges from fictional campaign committes, with paid street walkers from "Victory Outreach" handing out campaign material and the use of absentee ballots to get out the vote.
Somebody might want to ask Montebello City Councilman Robert Urteaga how he feels
about the Chacons and their tactics
, at this time ??
Nick Patsaouras and Doug Epplehart are highlighted today in Daily News Rick Orlov "Tipoff Column.
Patsaouras wants to create an office of "ratepayer advocate" to oversee the DWP. Epplehart wants to cut in half the salaries of the Mayor, City Attorney, City Controller and City Council.
Thumbs up on both, but let Corina get her half from Tony first.
** Rumors are circulating on the streets about fraud in the Mayor's Gang Prevention and Intervention Program, what do you expect when you are paying $6,000 to "Summer Night Lights Advocates" and awarding contracts to those who contribute to re-election campaigns ??
