Gloria Romero: Another Camera Happy Politican Dishing Up Fluff

Senator Romero Congratulates the Lakers on their Championship Win

LOS ANGELES, CA— Senator Gloria Romero (D – East Los Angeles) released the following statement on the Los Angeles Lakers’ victory over the Boston Celtics last night in the NBA championships:

“Congratulations to the Lakers for winning their 16th NBA title! East Los Angeles was in the house last night, cheering on our all-star team, and the Lakers did not disappoint with an incredible showing of not only athletic prowess, but a lot of ganas to win a tough match. From the eastside to the westside, there's a lot to love about LA this week and we Angelenos are incredibly proud of our NBA champions. Go Lakers!”

How about a shout out to the hundreds of Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputies who had to be deployed to East LA to hold back the hooliganry and thuggery we saw last night.  When is an elected official going to speak out on just how inappropriate this behavior is - whether its scores of perpetrator or hundreds or thousands.

Memo to GloRo - sports fans generally don't care what elected officials (particularly State Senators) think of sports teams and quite frankly resent their showing up and horning in.

Once again Mayor Higby proves his racist and race baiting roots by only calling out the LATINA who did this.

Every damn politician is doing this, but he picks on the LATINA.

Racist pig! Go deny it. But you are a racist pig. GloRo is just your latest victim to go with the others who you attack regularly only due to their brown or black skin. Do you hate Jews as much as the blacks & browns?

I want to know where did Tijuana Rose Gloria Romero get her tickets? Who paid for them and she wasn't there on an official capacity. I agree Michael, these asshole politicians say nothing about the gangsters after the game vandalizing, beating up innocent people, not one word about that deputy sheriff injured. And to the immature poster 3:37pm I'm a Latino and many of us don't support nor like politicians especially the Latino ones who have done NOTHING FOR OUR COMMUNITIES

Its a known fact the Lakers and in particular Kobe hates the Mayor and city council members. I want to see if our gang banger Mayor tries to sneak onto Kobe's bus again after he was told last year Kobe didn't want to be anywhere near the Mayor. Of course we all know the Mayor has no class or morals and still acts as if he's in the barrio

Nice try.

Romero was the only politician DUMB enough to send her press release to Mayor Sam.

I'm waiting for one of these pols to send me something interesting; instead they choke my email box with ego masturbation.

Romero wears her East L A Latino ethnicity on her sleeve and makes it clear she's an East L A pol, so it's fair game. She's always fought the subway from going through the westside to Santa Monica claiming it's racism favoring rich whites.
Even though study after study shows that's where the ridership would be and it makes far the most sense.

Ironically, the homeowner groups on the westside like Cheviott have returned the favor for decades too, they don't want a bunch of poor Mexicans often illegals and their swarms of cholo kids having an easier time swooping into their neighborhoods. Romero, Molina and their East L A racists don't even realize how they've furthered and played into racial politics against the good of the city.

If there WERE a good public mass transit system downtown, a lot of the people caught in that awful post-Laker "celebration" banged up by mostly Latino gangbangers could have fled on the subway instead.

There's a sad account in the LA Times Calendar about people who were next door for the L A Film Festival which moved downtown from "too predictable" Westwood this year and got so caught up in the hooliganism they literally couldn't get to their cards, had to walk for hours trying to escape and finally, took a cab home, left their car and had to go back next day.

No comment n that from Gloria.
