" Corporate Welfare Junkies deserve their Just Medicine"
Simply, "Bravo and Straight Ahead!!", in regards to Los Angeles City Attorney Carmen Trutanich efforts to recover the costs of city services provided for the non-permitted event that was the Michael Jackson Memorial, produced by the Anshultz Entertainment Group (AEG).
AEG's President Tim Leiweke was last seen early in the day, disgracing the fishwrap that doubles for the "Old Gray Westside Hag on Spring Street", aka LA Times.
Nuch is a bully!!, Nuch is a bully!!. was the pathetic talking points that Leiweke repeated over and over again for anyone that cared to print or record his "pleading points of spin".
But unlike the previous office holder of the top attorney office for the City of Los Angeles, there is an "backbone of principle" that now occupies LA's City Attorney office.
“If going after your money is being a bully, then I’m a bully; I have no problem doing that,” Trutanich said. “We wasted a lot of dough on the Michael Jackson memorial. We wasted a lot of money. Now if any of you think that we didn’t, I’ll take your donation after my speech.”
Trutanich comments are refreshing after years of special interests running wild on Spring Street. It was not long ago that the likes of Leiweke, would not have even been heard from.
But now with an City Attorney, who may be rough on the edges, but committed to cleaning up Spring Street, the attacks from the likes of Leiweke, may be the opening shots from the special interests who do not like the spotlight on their dubious dealings at City Hall.
