Los Angeles City Councilwoman and California Lt. Governor Candidate Janice Hahn
What happens when you corner a race pandering, liberal political candidate for state office, with facts on a controversial issue? In this case the issue was the Arizona Immigration Law, the candidate was Los Angeles City Councilperson Janice Hahn, who is running for Lt. Governor and doing the questioning was KABC 790 AM Talk Radio Host John Phillips.
It seems that Hahn did not like being ask to state the "true facts" about the Arizona law and hung up on Phillips during a five minute stint on radio April 30.
This must of not gone over too well with Campaign Manager Michael Trujillo, who has the thankless task of selling the "beach splashing blond from San Pedro", to the California electorate.
Memo to Trujillo, you might want to educate your candidate about World War Two history. When Phillips asked her how many Jews were killed by the Nazis in WWII, she was mum in response. Further, your candidate might find it in her best interest, to drop the Nazi analogy, in regard to the Arizona law. These comparisons are not going to endear herself well with the Jewish Community, which is growing weary of having the Holocaust, exploited for political gain.
On Tuesday Arizona Corporation Commissioner Gary Pierce wrote a letter to Villaraigosa daring him to give up the city's Arizona-based supply of 25 percent of the city's power. "If an economic boycott is truly what you desire, I will be happy to encourage Arizona utilities to renegotiate your power agreements so Los Angeles no longer receives any power from Arizona-based generation," Pierce wrote. The corporation governs Arizona utilities.
..... and your response Michael?
"Commissioner Gary Pierce is the Forrest Gump of Arizona politics," Michael Trujillo,campaign manager for Hahn's run for lieutenant governor, wrote in a statement obtained by the Weekly. "Never mind that he is an extreme right-wing Republican who supports a racist law in Arizona that even the United Nations has condemned ... "
In ending Michael, when your candidate's efforts to pander her way to a meaningless job in Sacramento, goes down in double-digit flames on June 8, maybe it would be wise to revisit your own comments from those "heady Measure B days".
"We are pretty positive that we have over 65 per cent of the votes in the city," Trujillo revealed. This measure only needs a 50-per cent vote. "I will go on record by stating right now, that if we lose Measure B, I will never work in a political campaign in my life," Trujillo promised.
With the losing streak set to grow Michael, maybe its time to consider a new profession?
