Krekorian's Tantrum: A True Diva Moment

Editor's Note: Phil was originally asked to provide a verifiable source for this incident. Until he does so it is the position of the Mayor Sam blog that this report is speculation only and has not been verified. We have received the following statement from the Krekorian campaign denying this incident: "Paul had to turn in a pair of forms to get his nominating papers and have them approved by Ethics: the Form 700 and the Declaration of Intent to run for office. The handbook never said it had to be turned in simultaneously (they said it could be turned in the next day), though the Clerk's office did say they required both at the same time. Paul didn't have his Form 700 filled out, but he got it done and that's why we got our petition in late. That's it. They never did any favors for us and Paul was nothing less than professional."

Word is circulating back to Mayor Sam about a disturbing incident that happened early in the special election campaign for the vacant seat in City Council District 2. It appears that Burbank Assemblyman Paul Krekorian threw a major temper tantrum in the City Clerk's office when he was denied the right to get his nominating petitions. On top of that he demanded the City Clerk use a ballot designation for his position that really actually does not exist. "San Fernando Valley Assemblymember?"? It sounds awfully suspicious.

Sources say that Krekorian also threw his weight around during his hissy fit...as if to say to City Clerk employees.."Don't you know who I am.??" It is unclear if he used those exact words, but it was clear that Paul Krekorian was letting them know he was an important elected official who had to catch a flight back to Sacramento very soon. In Pauls twisted vision, the City Clerk employees were there to serve him.

The problem with his paperwork was that Paul had not completed his official Ethics training with the City. Paul had not run for a City position before (because he lives in Burbank) and was not familiar with this requirement. Paul was upset that not getting his nominating papers would put him behind schedule with this latest, ambitious run for office. Paul threw his weight around. He mentioned that he was an elected official, a State Assembly Member. Paul mentioned that he had a flight to catch back to Sacramento and "didn't have time for this!.." .

When the City Clerks came back with the answer that Paul would not be allowed to get his paperwork that day, Krekorian was apoplectic. Angry and frustrated by his inability to get exactly what he wanted when he wanted it , Krekorian let loose with a burst of profanities. The exact words were heard by several witnesses, who said that the torrent included several uses of the "F bomb". Eventually, this tactic appears to have worked. Browbeaten and fatigued City Clerk employees allowed Krekorian to take his oath and get his papers, in direct circumvention of the rules.

Things we learned from this story:

1) Paul Krekorian has an explosive temper.
2)Paul Krekorian believes his government position entitles him to special treatment.
3) Paul Krekorian does not mind bending or breaking the rules to get what he wants.
4) Paul Krekorian will treat other government employees poorly if they are not at his same pay grade.

Now, I ask CD 2 voters...is this really the man you want in power in your district for the next 14 years?

PS.. Krekorian's camp is welcome to deny this if they want.

(Disclaimer: Phil Jennerjahn has endorsed Christine Essel in the CD 2 special election.)

Oh, give us a break, Phil. Surely, you can find something a bit better than taking hearsay and using it as a ploy to derail CD2 voters in thinking that all candidates for office aren't human.

Even if he did lose his temper, let's hope he will do the same thing when it comes to standing up for CD2 when he is at council.

I'd much prefer a bully. Then at least you know where he/she comes from.

Sounds like CD-2 will be getting somebody who will fit right into the City Council culture- AEG's Leiweke's style used here as "Exhibit A" for one method of resolving matters immediately instead of waiting for clarification by a judge.

I expect there's lots of assorted temper tantrums thrown by electeds- but this one was not kept in-house. More dangerous than these emotional boil-overs is the deliberate and controlled deceptions that the polticians plan that doesn't coincide with constituent interests, the hypocrisy witnessed only by their staffers who aren't about to end their job-security by leaking the info.

If Krekorian acknowedges the incident, it would only be after lots of consulting time spent to try to spin it to his advantage, if that's possible.

Did anyone check his file for "completeness" as to requirements for filing? If he complied with the Ethics material, it should show by a document. Interesting that the shortcoming originally was based on an "ethics" matter- maybe this is one area that instruction here as a prerequisite to filing was not planned simply as busy-work. They hit paydirt with Paul Krekorian.

I think Phil needs a new source.

Anyone who has ever run for office or been to the city clerk's office (as you should know Phil) to pull and/or file their papers would know that it is virtually impossible to simply overhear this alleged rant in this tiny office and then care enough to repeat it. They are so used to busy candidates coming in and "throwing tantrums" that it's ridiculous to think they would repeat it.

Even if your source is correct, it's way better to have a tantrum-thrower than it is to have a smiling robot like Essel in there, nodding her head like a bobble head while the lobbyists tell her how to vote because she would be confused and not know what to do.

Her stance on planning issues and neighborhood councils added to the people who currently support/endorse her and you've got yourselves a world of trouble as do the rest of the residents of the City of LA who will be dependent on her vote.

Let her stay 20 miles away in Hollywood and let Paul move 2 miles away so he can spend more time with his kids.

If this is a ploy to distract from Ed$$el's fundraiser by Armenian genocide deniers. Won't work! Blood money is blood money and she has that stain on her hands now.

And guess it's too hard for Jennerjerk to find issues that matter in CD2 to fault Krekorian on so must resort to the sleaze, as usual. IT'S ABOUT THE ISSUES, STUPID!! Something you nor Ed$$el know the first thing about. So crawl back under your rock and take your poison with you.

Say what you will about Phil Jennerjahn, but at least he has the guts to stand up for what he believes in.

Unlike Mike Higby, who claims to be a Libertarian. But is supporting the most Liberal (99% rating) of liberal Sacramento Big Spenders.

Mike Higby, who claims to have issues with Villaraigosa's governance, yet backs a guy whose staff all come from Villaraigosa, and who practices the same ethnic politics. ("Vote for me simply because I am one of you.") Which has no place in modern LA.

Mike Higby, who obviously was so picked on in his childhood and early adulthood that he backs a candidate based on the staff being nice to him, because that is such a rarity. They want to spend California into the third world? Hey, but they're NICE to me. They want to steal votes with illegal tactics? But they're NICE to me.

Phil purports to be a pragmatic conservative, and we have no reason to doubt him. He has seen through the Paul "Give Everything to the Unions" Krekorian.

Phil will not reward a Sacramento reject with a huge pay raise on our city council.

Phil sees that Krekorian will do anything for his own base, but doesn't give a darn about good governance.

Higby makes a joke about losing everything he's worked for because all LA thinks he got paid off here. Gee, ya think?

(Now watch, Hacopian will post some dumb Hacopian joke about, "Higby, get back to work, or I'll cancel the check.")

But when all LA says you have regressed, that your credibility is gone, and that you are what should disturb you more: a hypocrite, inconsistent with your purported beliefs, well, you ought to listen.

At least Phil is consistent and ethical, and we applaud that.

After that story fails to take hold, our crack researchers will reveal that Chris Essel took money from SEVERAL Anti-Prop 8 activists. Therefore, we will tell you, Chris Essel must be gay!

If this story is true, and it surely does have some truth in it, it is very interesting. On the one hand, to see the way Krekorian threw his weight around is disturbing. Nut on the other other hand, it's refreshing that he's not going to be ruled by meaningless technicalities - if that means he's a bully, then it kinda fits because I hear Los Angeles's other bully, Nooch, is going to endorse him.
Two people in City Hall that are not afraid to stand up to bullshit sounds like a little more of what we need in local government.
Jan Perry and Richard Alarcon made a lot of noise in council chambers on Friday, but that was because they had their gang buddies backing them. Real fighters don't need gangs behind them.

And personal attacks are not what people want from or about the candidates in this election. Talk issues, if you can! Who cares what additional gutter politics and mud slinging Shallman does. But then I guess he has little choice since he's working with a blank page with Chris Essel. She doesn't stand for anything, well maybe, business as usual which the voters won't swallow. Rather than the mud slinging, I dare Jennerjahn, Shallman, and the dope dealer Sheftel and his ilk to talk issues. You can't tear Krekorian down enough to get to Essel's low level. Krekorian can hold his head high based on the campaign he's run. Essel can't get her head high enough to get it out of the gutter or out of the mayor's ass, or the special interests & lobbyists, or downtown insiders, including the CAA, and then there's those pesky Armenian genocide deniers. Do ethics and blood money go hand in hand? Maybe our "ethical" guy Jennerjahn knows.

Seems he backed away from publicly associating with Trutanich after this last series of shenanigans, with him threatening and bullying everyone from officials to citizens, even Zine didn't support Trutanich when he started intimidating colleagues though he'd joined in hard and early in the AEG-bashing in July.

If he just acknowledged he had a bit of a meltdown, but no one was hurt I might accept that. And life goes on. But denying it is deceptive. Does the clerk have security cameras?

Higby and Krekorian can say whatever they want and deny whatever they want.

I have my information from two people who were there when it happened. They asked to remain anonymous so I will respect their request. It helps with future sources.

I believe them because;

1) This event happened months ago when Krekorian was just one of ten candidates, so it wasn't a big deal at that time. The story made its way around political circles here in LA. Others have heard about it.

2) The people involved had no reason to lie when re-telling this story months ago.

3) If they were going to make up something dirty about Krekorian, this seems like too odd of a thing to make up.

There are too many facts here that dictate that it did happen.

They also told me you can go to the City Clerk and see that Krekorians papers are dated in the wrong order.

He tries to make out all Turks as somehow evil and tainted with genocide. NONE OF THAT IS HELPFUL TO VOTERS.

HOWEVER this whole "diva moment" is a pitifully lame excuse to attack the guy, when we all know who frustrating it can be to deal with bureaucratic incompetence.

The guy had a plane to catch - whether as an Assemblyman or whether he were a businessman or some guy going home for the weekend, doesn't matter. Of course he wanted to settle the issue then and there, and some clerk wanting to be sure to be out of there well before 5 didn't cut it. So WHAT?

It looks like I made a small error on this story.

My sources said Paul Krekorian TRIED to bully and browbeat the City Clerk people into giving him his nomination papers without completing his ethics training.

I misunderstood and thought they said he DID bully and browbeat the City Clerks into giving him his nomination papers without doing his ethics training.

Small error but big difference in results.

This is what happens when you try to report on a story from four months ago.

I am sorry for the mistake and any misunderstandings it might have caused.

The rest of the story...about Paul being a jerk.. that part is correct.
