Saturday Hotsheet

The Lu Parker Project

Want yet another way to buy some influence with the Mayor? Now you can donate to his TV anchor girlfriend Lu Parker's "charity" which doesn't seem to be doing anything innovative or different with it's most recent achievement being the painting of the lobby of animal shelter. Kathy Cheng of California Common Cause told the LA Times that "vigilance is needed with such charities to make sure they are not a back channel way for special interests to find special access to electeds that regular constituents don’t have." According to Parker her "The Lu Parker Project" is an "outlet to express love and compassion." I thought that was the Mayor's Lu Parker Project.

As the City Council is considering an elected DWP Ratepayer Advocate Jack Humphreville has a suggestion.  Writing in CityWatch the presumptive CD4 challenger suggests the Council hire a consultant who can clearly define the role of the position.

Much has been written about the sweetheart giveaway the City has in store for billionaire Eli Broad to build a memorial to himself downtown (also called an art museum).  But now another organization has come forward to lay claim to the Grand Avenue parcel that Broad has been salivating for.  The Shen Yun Performing Arts Organization is vying to build a 3000 seat theatre and arts training center.  However they can't seem to get a fair shake from the CRA or City Council who has the fix in for the politically connected Broad.  Incredibly the CRA staff told the Chinese organization that they would be better off at one of several sites in Chinatown.  Hmmm, is this 1953?

Don't forget today is the day.  The launch party for the Clean Sweep Movement is happening in North Hollywood.  Speakers include former Mayor Richard Riordan, Walter Moore, radio talk show host Kevin James and South Central Farmer Tezozmoc.

Lu Parker is only about promoting Lu Parker. She always claims to be about the animals, but that usually means for posing with one for an article, rather than actually doing something to save their lives or find them suitable homes.

Ask most any charity, and they'll say that they never, ever see her in the shelters or holding an adoption.

Even the name of the "project" shows her egomania. You will never see someone like her being part of any charity where her NAME is not featured.

It's no surprise that an egomaniac like Lu Parker is dating an egomaniac like Antonio Villaraigosa. They deserve each other. Of course, that leads to the question of whose name comes first on invitations.

Maybe they'll settle on Lutony Parvillar and fuse into one giant radioactive ball of gooey ego.

To say Shun Lee should set up in Chinatown is dumb because SL is an upscale, world-class event and Chinatown is a smelly dump. The crowd the event wants to attract would not be as enthralled for a Chinatown experience. Now go tell Cirque du Solei to perform in France.

It is sad that Phil Jennerjahn is resorting to attacking Steve Box, in part, because of his religious beliefs.

Phil's modus operendi is to attack people who he can't beat.

He attacked the Mayor and other candidates in the Mayor's race, and it pissed people off, so he came in last place.

He attacked the others in the CD2 race, and people didn't like it and he came in last place.

He attacked the incumbent AND James Andion the challenger in the Congressional race. People didn't like it and Phil came in last place.

In attacking Steven Box, Phil once again declares that he is the best candidate, except that he cannot articulate how he will get more votes than even one candidate, let alone all of them. Phil also fails to articulate WHAT he would do as a councilmember. As the night time guy at KABC radio said, "Phil knows he can't win. He is a 'vanity' candidate who thrives on attention, even if it's negative attention." Well stated.

It's too bad that the sportsbooks don't let you vote on who will finish in last place in a given local election.

Lu Parker must of been raised with good American Values. What Happened? Que Paso? Why is she dating a dreg like Tony Villar. If my sister was dating him my mama would tell her not to trust a mentiroso and a mujeriego like Tony. That he was an egotist and that he only wanted arm candy.

Lu call your mama you need some good mexican (how about Corina's mom) or american mother's advice before it's too late.
