Morning Briefs and Outtakes for Friday, September 18, 2009

"Friend of Esteban Nunez pleads guilty to lesser charge in San Diego Murder Case"
This is not good for former Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez Son Esteban Nunez chances of beating his murder rap.
The Los Angeles Times reports that Rafael Garcia, a college student in Northern California, pleaded guilty to felony conspiracy to destroy evidence, including a bloody shirt. In exchange, prosecutors dropped a murder charge against him in the Oct. 4 death of Luis Santos.
As part of a plea bargain, Garcia agreed to testify against three co-defendants: Ryan Jett, Esteban Nuñez and Leshanor Thomas.
LA Weekly's Christine Pelisek had the definitive story of this tragic event out of San Diego which detail among other things, the extentive letter writing campaign on the behalf of Esteban, by scores of former Speaker Fabian Nunez connected friends.
** Another day and you guess right, we have another busted DWP water line. This time in the West Valley.
Topanga Canyon Boulevard in Canoga Park was shut down during the busy afternoon commute today after yet another broken water main flooded the street and sent dirty brown water pouring into nearby businesses.
The break — the fourth major gusher this week — occurred just before 3 p.m. in a 12-inch pipe under Topanga near Victory Boulevard.
Topanga is a major state highway connecting the 101 and 118 freeways, and some city officials predicted traffic chaos. Councilman Dennis P. Zine, who represents the area, said he wants the city Department of Water and Power to figure out what is going on beneath the streets — and fast.
** The District Attorney is now reviewing the LAPD investigation of former Building and Safety General Manager Andrew Adelman for a allege sexual assault.
** The "Old Gray Westside Hag On Spring Street" continues to pay catch up on the explosive ACORN Scandal. When are local leaders going to investigate ACORN ties to our local government entities??
** New City Controller Wendy Greuel has announced the completion of her first audit. Link here for this "entensive review" of fiscal operations at the Convention Center.
** Former CD 14 Councilman Nick Pacheco is back on the public payroll. He was named "Interim Asst. City Administrator" in the City of Montebello. Thanks to "Parque Esqueleto" for alerting us to this story.
** Be on the lookout for "ACORN Funded Prostitution Zones" in various areas around Los Angeles.
** State Senator and former City Council President Alex "Chubs" Padilla is conducting public hearings on Sodas link to Obesity, duh!
** The DWP is considering dropping its plans for the proposed "Green Path" power line.
TGIF to all and your thoughts are greatly appreciated..............

Did you really just bottle cap Higby's exclusive on the Galatzan-Villaraigosa connection with this screed? Really??

Here's one for Krekorian, not that Higby deserves it with his selective slams in favor of Paul K, same as he was doing for Trutanich against Jack Weiss. Though Paul's people don't seem as viral and nasty, to Paul's credit, they're nice like Weiss's.

L A Now has a critical look at the Essel mailer and Shallman, claiming that Paul supported turning Verdugo Hills golf course into development, the Fuentes bill. But there's a dispute over which version of the Fuentes bill he supported. (No doubt, Fuentes was a dangerous man, and fact he's putting out ads for Krekorian is worrisome. But Shallman is lying and has been caught at it.)

Unusual that Maeve Reston writes this, and she and Zahniser always worked FOR Shallman clients so far.

This comes day after Jim Newton, who endorsed both Shallman clients in the same terms lacking credibility, slamming Weiss and Tamar-Paul in the same way, is replaced as Editor of Editorials.

While editorial and city desk are different depts., Eddy Hartenstein the publisher seems to have been embarrassed by people being so aware of the bias, rumors of Newton's connection to and plans to work for Riordan, etc.

This is too late to have helped the extreme bias Weiss endured, but do we dare hope the worst of the bias is being addressed, a little bit?

That Shallman's days of running what Joe B calls "Shallman's Lackeys" at the Times are in question?

I don't care what you fuckers say. I'm voting ABRS (Anyone But Red Spot). Red Spot's inability to read/write sets a horrible example for our young people and his lust for Sarah Palin calls into question his character and judgment. On election day, remember, ABRS!

Nice of you to paraphrase your Mom's hopes before you were born;

Okay, you had me with the Red Spurt illiteracy example appeal, but then you lost me when you had to go and trash one of few decent-looking female politicians in this country.

Other country's allow women who aren't repulsive looking to lead, why not the U.S.? Are our babes only good for spokesmodel and centerfold duties?

RS is doubly annoying because he (and Higby), think his ignorance is funny, which makes it all the more sad -- like hurling midgets and mimicking lispers and hair-lips.

But separate your passions into categories if you're looking to influence the masses, dude(ette?). You've got (half) my vote, only.

If this isn't suspicious, I don't know what is. Who is investigating the possible sabotage by the DWP Union of our water system.

We need Red Spite on the case immediately: find out who at DWP is exploding our pipes as an excuse to raise our taxes and hire MORE not fewer DWP workers! He can't spell for shite but is excellent with conspiracy theories!

Does anyone know if the Ethics commission is investigating or did anyone file the fact that Antonio used city letterhead when he wrote or had his attorney write that letter in defense of Nunez's son for the judge.

you know the old saying
if you cant do the time
then dont do the crime.

I guess this kid relized that knuckle-head nunez Sr. has no power
to get them out of jail like the knuckle-nunez jr said before they went to go and kill this innocent young man.

I hope that bastard nunez jr rots in jail.

no matter who you are you can not
get away with murder by just writing letters from corrupt politians also.
