Outtakes from CD-14: "The Cut and Paste Capital of Los Angeles"

Hola!! from the "cut and paste" barrio of Ciudad de los Angeles.

We start today with a special edition of the "rich and connected" in CD 14, which usually means that you ride a Harley, motor around Boyle Heights in a Mercedes, or is blessed with an "Legacy" of public money.

Today we profile no other than the chief purveyor of the "CD 14 connected jet set", Councilman Jose Huizar. When not seen sharing huevos with the connected few across CD 14, his lavish spending and trips to the likes of Florida, Oscar's bar, Mt. Washington, Barrio Action, Zacatecas and the 740 Club, has been fodder for comments aplenty and invites scrutiny from reporters, US attorneys, and the IRS??

Consider this from the latest "Downtown Garment and Citizen.

ARE FEDS STILL ON HUIZAR?: The U.S. Attorney might have dropped an investigation into 14th District City Councilmember Jose Huizar, but reliable sources say that agents of the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) are asking some questions of their own. The U.S. Attorney recently cleared Huizar after considering the propriety of payments he received from a labor-backed outfit for consulting services during his tenure on the Los Angeles Unified School District board. The IRS now appears to be backtracking Huizar’s spending habits, which could be an investigative method to check his claims on deductions or to determine whether he properly reported all of his income. Spend more than you could possibly afford on whatever income you claim and it’s liable to become a red flag for the feds. Huizar’s office had not returned calls seeking comment as of presstime…

So what type of excessive spending has drawn the attention of the IRS?? What has Huizar fail to report as gifts?? Who is providing the "scratch" to help Huizar with his growing girth?? Were the huevos that fed the "connected few" during the "Huevos with Huizzy Tour", courtesy of a campaign contributor?? Maybe Huizar was living "high on the carnitas" after writing some consulting missive on how to regulate illegal street vending in Boyle Heights, who knows??

But one can bet the next GRYD contract for Legacy LA, that the numerous ex. employees of Huizar, may have some comments.......


** Meet "CD 14 East", I meant, Montebello City Councilman Robert "Snyder" Urteaga. Urteaga joins "CD 14 West" former Councilman Arthur Snyder as being subject of an recall election, with the Montebello City Clerk certifying the Recall petitions of Kathy Salazar and Urteaga.

** Can you say "State Senator John Perez"?? The buzz is that the cousin of Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is strongly considering running for the state senate seat that will be vacated by Gil Cedillo in 2010.

DOWNTOWN ROUND ROBIN? Word on the street says that 46th District California State Assemblymember John Perez will make a run for the State Senate when 22nd District incumbent and fellow Democrat Gil Cedillo hits term limits next year. That opens the possibility of Cedillo and Perez replacing one another in a Sacramento Shuffle. Cedillo is still eligible to serve one more term in the Assembly as the 46th District rep, and word has it that he’ll seek to regain the seat if Perez goes ahead with a Senate campaign.

** Meanwhile former Assmbly Speaker Fabian Nunez staffer and City of Los Angeles Planning Commission member Ricardo Lara, has hitched his "carpetbag to the democractic burro" and set up shop in the 50th Assembly District, where he is the front runner to replace current Assemblyman Hector De La Torre.

Ha ha ha. Laughable. Garment Citizen is the same throw away rag that said huizar and moinca garcia were on the outs (saw them at the recent opening of a school and they looked like old buddies). the paper also reported that an ex-employee ratted him out to the feds. Think about it. That guy from seiu was caught after years of investigation on the non profit that huizar was investigated about--so his ex-employee couldn't have ratted him out. where does garment citizen gets its "reliable sources" from? someone laying on the floor where the paper is found?

in cd-9

I had some huevos with Huizar (at one of his recent morning community meetings), and I didn't get one damn dime in graft!

(I think I'll have that printed as a T-shirt).

But now that I think about it, he didn't even have breakfast "with" us - just showed up an hour after it started, have a 20-minute speech, "answered" a few questions, then ran off.

I think the "CD14 East" crack was Parque Esquelto's back when Nick Pacheco got on the payroll there a few weeks ago, Red!

Don't be a Zuma Dogg and swipe things without attribution (ask Higby what that word means).

I find someof your words to be racist in comment, hitch your burro, or the carnitas comment would you tell a black person to give you an old soft shoe dance, or tell em to go eat watermelon. COME ON PEOPLE. where is your cilivility??? It really doesnt matter if you dislike a person but to make it racial is evil. I don't like Huizar myself but I will not lower myself to call him outside his name, i may call him a cerdo, pig that fits better and its not racial.

Reporter for the Garment News makes it sound like Cedillo is going to wait for Perez to make his decision to run for State Senate. But in fact, Cedillo filed paperwork to run for his old assembly seat back in June of this year. Could it be that Cedillo wants to push out Perez because Perez endorsed Cedillo's rival for Congress, Judy Chu?
