Greuel and Essel Make a Funny

From the City Ethics Site; Chris Essel robocall script for today:

"Hi! This is City Controller Wendy Greuel your former city council woman.

Turnout in this election is historically low. Don't let the special interests buy this election. Vote for Chris Essel"

Thanks Shallman we all needed a good joke about now!

That's the great dang thing about Sizzler, no robocalls. I didn't like Wendy Greuel anyway. So long, itch-bay!

For once, I agree with Jennerjahn. For 2013, it's anyone buy Wendy for mayor.

Is that some variation of "The pot calling the kettle black"?

Maybe it was a first-time (cold)read for Wendy and she just didn't pay attention to content, but all to the reading, and trusting her pal's judgment, she didn't think there'd be a problem.

Now, for the real question- WHO did she mean? Krekorian? Tamar Galatzin? And if the grassroots were the culprits, then of course, the evil "special interest" would have to be the people of CD-2, since Wendy's statement allows that conclusion to be constructed.

That's about as nutty as the Council members prefacing comments on each other with, "And I want to thank (CM) for the very strong leadership shown here .... (fill in the rest of their fantasy statement)."

Higby at what point is this blog gonna get back to report on something, anything, other than ST, HD, CD2 and any or all of the candidates?

Villaraigosa is laughing at all of us for being so wrapped up in this. You control the content here. Can you just make it stop? How many more recaps are we going to get AFTER the election?

Shut up 7:36. You're getting on my nerves now. I've been quiet about you long enough. It's election day. Shut the fuck up. We'll drag out the coverage as long as we damn well anonymously please. Grow up and don't read the blog if it's bugging you right now.

What happens tonight has an effect on the entire city and some of us just can't help but care.

Are you worried there ain't enough illegal immigration-bashing going on? Please just shut up. (And shut up is a bad word in my house)

That means you're getting on my tolerant nerves. And if you're getting on mine, I know you're bugging other people too.

What special interests could possibly be interested in Council District 2? Yes they could be that dumb!
