Splitsville for Councilman Jose Huizar and LAUSD School Board President Monica Garcia ??

"Councilman Jose Huizar and LAUSD School Board President Monica Garcia in Better Times ??"
Why don't we call this for what it is ?? An act of political survival, especially for Los Angeles School Board President Monica Garcia.
Consider this tidbit from the Downtown Garment and Citizen Newspaper, in its "Dat, Dat, Dish Column", which will hit the newstands tomorrow.
TEA LEAVES ON MONICA’S TUNE: Is it true that LAUSD board president Monica Garcia is telling federal investigators tales out of school about her old boss, 14th District City Councilmember Jose Huizar? That’s the buzz around the town, and a recent invitation to a grand opening of the Mendez Learning Center near 1st & Mission adds grist to the rumor mill. The new school is located in the 14th District, and Huizar represented the area in his prior gig on the LAUSD board, when Garcia served as his chief of staff. The feds’ investigation into Huizar centers on some consulting fees he collected from a non-profit while serving on the school board. The invitation for the August 29 opening of the Mendez Learning Center gave Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa top billing, followed by Garcia—with no mention of her old mentor Huizar, who has said he will co-operate with investigators…

Reading the above notes from the Garment and Citizen Editor Jerry Sullivan's missives on the political culture downtown, One should not be surprise that someone like Garcia would "sing to the feds", in order to save herself from long term exposure to prison crusine. After all, a "Manuel's Special" beats Salami and Cheese any day. BTW, would they have to reopen Sybil Brand in City Terrace, just to house an incarcerated Monica Garcia ??

But for CD-14 Councilman Jose Huizar, the thought he needs to ponder is this. Will he readily stand by and grab his ankles, in knowing that Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa set him up for this fall long ago ?? Maybe Huizar will think back to that faithful day when he casted his lot with the Villaraigosa Machine and abandon any hopes of establishing a political legacy, independent of outside influences. Especially when Huizar's vision butts heads with the "MEchista Agenda" of one Antonio Ramon Villar.

Yet, some in the CD 14 "Cut and Paste Political Culture" will surely deconstruct my notion that Huizar had the "cranial capacity" to conceptualize a vision in the first place. But more important for Huizar at this moment, is not becoming the latest CD-14 Councilman to undertake the mid-life vocation of "license plate maker" in Lompoc.

And just maybe, we will find that Jose Huizar also has the ability to "sing". After all one would want to be around to enjoy his growing kit at home.

Your thoughts..............

Why would someone be digging up stuff he allegedly did on the School Board years ago? Sounds like political retribution. When Rocky's investigation was dropped this week, the Times' report said it looked like "someone with some juice" had gotten the feds to look into it in the first place. The DA is known to hate Rocky and wants to take him out of the running for State Attorney General. I think he'd be a poor choice for the job but this kind of dirty trick by a power-hungry
Republican enemy is not right and a waste of our taxpayer dollars.

Nostalgic, ain't it.

The last time one of the writers on this blog was SO sure some elected official was going to "jail," the writer was an as-yet unmasked Higby -- and Jimmy Hahn was the target.

Maybe you just got your wires crossed - and meant to say he was going to "court", dude.

Because, that's where he is now -- as a sitting judge on the LOS ANGELES SUPERIOR COURT!

Geez, when you miss, you REALLY miss!

I think that means J. Hahn will still be gainfully employed when Mayor Tony V. is (officially) out of work, sitting on a couch in his underwear, eating Funyuns, and watching daytime TV in some third-string broadcast babe's trailer-park home in the Valley -- 24/7.

Chat is it about CD 14 that causes so many of its City Councilmen to end up in trouble with the feds? Alarcon and Snyder.

I think it's the abundance of community funds that is available for the area and that fact that there is no other higher paid Councilmember in the nation, it's just never enough money.

So who runs in the special election to fill the vacancy when Jose quits as a part of a plea bargain like Dave Cunningham and Bob Farrell?

The SEIU's Alejandro Stephens is accused of taking more than $50,000 in fees through bogus consulting contracts, documents say.

Earlier this month, it was learned that federal authorities have been investigating whether Los Angeles City Councilman Jose Huizar and former Board of Education member David Tokofsky received improper consultant payments from the Voter Improvement Program, sources familiar with the probe said. No charges have been brought against Huizar or Tokofsky. The payments under scrutiny were made in 2003 and 2004, sources said.

FEDS getting closer to come

Deputy Chief Sergio Diaz was born in Havana, Cuba in 1954. He immigrated to the United States in 1962

Wake up people!!!!!! This is who Antonio wants as the next chief. He's part of the Mafia corrupt crew trying to gain control and run our city. Diaz supports illegals and wants everything in Spanish. He hates the Valley and the only people who know Diaz are the radical, hard core latinos who support Huizar, Antonio, and the rest of the Mexican Mafia.

The day Bratton announced his resignation I predicted on Kevin James' show the new chief would be that wimpy, Special Order 40 advocate Diaz. If this traitorous jerk DOES get appointed, we should demonstrate at the mayor's office and at Parker Center. I'm not gonna take the "Latinization" of L.A. sitting down, that's for sure.

Rita you are so right. People need to be careful Diaz doesn't make the final cut. Problem is commissioners are selected by gang banger Mayor and Diaz is good friend. Now if this illegal loving Sergio Diaz doesn't have the brains to make a decision by himself and waited until his other illegal loving, womanizing friend George Gascon decided not to apply for chief how the hell can he have the balls to be Chiefof LAPD? He doesn't!!!

...The change of heart, said the 54-year-old Diaz, came after he decided not to pursue a job under George Gascon, a close friend and former LAPD deputy chief who recently took over the top post at the San Francisco Police Department.

Someone needs to tell Monica to loose some weight. Or she should go on the Biggest Loser show just like the rest of the LAUSD Board and the City Council. But not because of their weight but because they are all the biggest losers.

That is a terrible photo of Monica Garcia. Someone should show her how to dress to make her look, if possible, smaller and not bigger.
