Open Thread for the Rest of Wednesday

The City of LA forced to return $21 million it stole from LAX.  Blog away dum dums.

What? The L.A. City Clowncil was caught diverting funds to an unintended use?

I find it hard to believe they would do anything shady and inept. What's next? They can't pass a Medicinal Marajuana dispensery ordinance?

I know, I know. Forget Jake, it's Chinatown.

Hangover $21 million from the Ted Stein era.

No money changing hands here; just reduced fees to the airport in the future until $21 million, plus interest is "earned" back.

What about the action on the billboards? Is that not worthy of mention?

What would Wacky Walter say?

And, how many years will it take the city to pay back the airport?

These clowns allowed the 1,000 marijuana stores to open. Now they are crying about it? They must be smoking some of that pot too.

Shame on them for not putting in some rules from the beginning. Clownmembers can not start crying about the problems that they allowed to happen.

Shame on them for not doing their job right in the first place. Shame, shame, shame.

Bill Rosendahl this week suggested that the Council take money OUT of the airports again to pay for the new class of LAPD recuirts that they're putting on hold otherwise, but Alarcon reminded him that they were just sued for taking money from LAWA!

Meanwhile, the money that was promised for cops from the tripled trash fees, now hundreds of dollars a year per homeowner, AND Prop S the Phone Tax "reduction" are also swiped into the general budget and not going where promised - they were mad at Bratton for reminding them about this deception after using him to peddle the taxes to the public. Rosendahl as usual flip-flopped and supports Smith and Parks on the right to take the money away from public safety AFTER he held a town meeting last year so residents could vent about wanting MORE cops on the street to Bratton

Rosendahl must be stopped, he can't be allowed to become Senator like he's thinking about or any higher office.

Wacko Walter is hanging out on Phil Genderjane's blog nowadays. Good riddance. It's literally the two of them over there, alone. Good that Mayor Sam fired both of their asses.

Phil and Walter are two peas in a pod. TGI they're gone but I think theyll grow lonely over there unless they enjoy each others company.

It is funny though that a worldly successful guy like Walter is seeking friends with a very underachieving Phil, who he outed as a carnival barker or whatever he does as an "entertainer".

This goes back to Riordan who got elected by promising to hire 3000 more cops without raising taxes. He also promised he would only serve one term if he couldn't do it. He took $66 million from the Harbor Department, which the City was forced to repay by the State Lands Commission after he left office, and $50+ million from LAX, of which $21 million now has to be repaid by the present Mayor and Council. By the way, by the time he left office, the department had increased by about 1500 officers.
