Just Another Night at Paul Krekorian's Campaign Office

This is what a real campaign looks like. This is how you fight the special interests, the downtown insiders, and the status quo. This is how you stand up to Brian D'Arcy and the IBEW, The Mayor, and the Central City Association.

One person at a time.

A vote for Essel if a vote for
Brian D'Arcy. I worked too hard on Measure B to allow him to input control my District and push for Son of Measure B and do away with
$ limits on campaigns ordance what was voted in by the people. I thought she said she's not political, that letter for AV shows she lies. PK is a no brainer!

So there is a rumor that Antonio will endorse Chris. Me and my wife just had massive orgasms over this. If Antonio endorses Chris, it's over for her. I am so stoked!!!

One thing to note, the attorney for the union group trying to skirt the ethics rules for Essel is Stephen Kaufman who is Villaraigosa's lawyer and was also the attorney who defended the lawsuit against Measure R AND sued Ron Kaye and the Solar 8.

Bye bye Paul. Your buddy Koretz ruined it all for you. Now you're outspent, outmaneuvered, and out of luck. Chris has CD2 in her pocket.

Did anyone see the photo of Chris Essel's "party" with only Frank Sheftel and Idiot Phil? It was in Brentwood. Not CD2!

Essel gets Antonio on Tuesday, it is confirmed.

There is going to be a big push among Latino voters on Essel's behalf over the next two weeks.

She WILL win on December 8th.

I don't believe the mayor will endorse Essel. For one thing, he is very aware of his popularity decline and the most important reason, I don't think he'll go against the Democratic Party.

I think someone's "confirmation" is in their head. Or they heard it from a friend who knows someone who worked with Chris and that person's cousin confirmed it.

That's just how this blog works sometimes.

I heard Mitchell Englander in CD 12 hired Shallman too. Any truth to that rumor? Does that sound plausible? With all the Shallman haters here, I wonder how that will play out.

The Krekorian campaign team is the best in the business, specially when it comes to back alley political knife fights.

But your comparison is a stretch, Waxman-Berman was another time and era that wont be repeated.

Ahhh... the bottlecapping rage of Joe B.

You can set your watch to it.

...(but he doesn't do things like that, right?)

(Good to know that Joe B's SECOND choice for CD 2 is the one he wants to win now.)

I can imagine Joe B in that office with his fellow ACORN redshirts shouting...

Paul will lose. It is obvious that Sacramento is in trouble, the budget is unraveling, the assembly has the lowest approval rating, and Paul is smack dab in the middle. He ruined our state and now wants to bring that failed leadership to this city. JUST SAY NO!! Support independence and a new voice for our city. GEEZ Paul had never even lived in the district til this election. Go back to Burbank and save us all the 2 mil$$ it would cost to fill your old seat.

Phil I told Joe to post that because the video just came in. Its called breaking news.

Also I told you that post about Essel's office was stupid.

Now if you had more photos of the office or even a video that might have been interesting. But all you did was take a photo of a yard sign and reprint an Essel press release basically.

Why do you have to go off on Joe?

Hey Phil can you answer this...

Chris Essel has been part of the CRA (no, not the California Republican Assembly) for YEARS...

Is there any more socialist scheme than the CRA?????

Michael Higby,

Joe B. bottlecapped me because he didn't like my post. I always give others 5-6 hours of time on top.

Video of Paul being a crybaby about Christines fundraising isn't anything new.

I am realistic about my expectations of Christine Essel. I don't expect her to save the City. I think things will still be bad here. But I think she is less destructive than Paul Krekorian. Pauls voting record in Sacramento tells you everything you need to know about him.

He is a Statist, and he believes in the government using force against individuals.

i.e....a freedom-hating liberal.

The creeps on the City Council feel free to tell you that you no longer have the right to get your cat declawed. Wow.

From there...it's just a few quick steps away from totalitarianism. Telling you what kind of car you can drive...how much money you can earn...etc...etc...

The incredibly well informed anonymous said: "Hacopian is the guy sitting on the chair next to Krekorian."

Actually, I'm the guy sitting on the chair next to Krekorian. My name is Mark Klein. Eric was there, by the way, but I don't see him in the video.

So much for anonymous reliability...

BTW, go Paul. He'll be a strong councilmember for the district.

Chris Essel brags on one of the You
tube videos of the Wed night debate- it also pops up when you watch the first video here - that she is proud to continue to support Trutanich and Cooley's position on the pot issue, that all sales are illegal even from the shops long-establshed and paying taxes and members of Chambers of Commerce. She is so pandering to the rightwing Republicans it "isn't even funny," to use Cooley's phrase of what he thinks of the city electeds.

They MAY be idiots but it's the DUTY of the DA and CA to enforce the laws of law-making bodies, NOT to make up their own. The council may be stupid but nowhere as stupid as those two. Zine excepted. Maybe a few others excepted, but still.

And even if we grant that Perry's a nitwit like her sister the other Jan, that's no excuse to jail someone for speaking their mind on what they see their job to be.

She is SUPPORTING someone who lied to Laura Chick and her lawyer and now is using twisted semantics to claim they were always going to work FOR FREE/ pro bono, as though Woocher were a rube.

Essel's hero is someone who lied to Chick with the intent to throw her under the bus and make war on her and Woocher even though it's costing way more and everyone from the judge on the case to sane observers tell him this is a zero- sum game driven by his ego.

While he forced the wimpy-ass Council to fire Woocher and made Wendy go to Court alone, UNLESS she starts all over with a new lawyer who even our CLA Jerry Miller sided with the judge, that it would cost a lot MORE and make NO sense.

It's a little thingy called
D-E-M-O-C-R-A-C-Y AND ESSEL DOESN'T GET IT because she has no mind of her own, dumb or otherwise. Like the Nooch she's a puppet for hire and a very lame one.

Essel has proved she has NO brain or integrity and works for Nooch, Cooley, Riordan. the Police Political League, D'Arcy and any special interest who paid for her.
