LA Weekly on Assemblyman Felipe Fuentes: "The Worst Legislator in California"

Was CD 7/2 City Councilman Richard Alarcon "ratted out" by Assemblyman Felipe Fuentes?
Is it easy to say that Assemblyman Felipe Fuentes is a "political bad guy"? Does CD 7/2 City Councilman Richard Alarcon have residency issues? The answers are one in the same.
But while 9.999 out of 10 may agree with the premise of the LA Weekly Story by David Futch on the Special Interest Ghost-Authoring proclivities of the East Valley Democrat, what one can find more sinister here, is the depths that Fuentes will sink to advance his self-serving political agenda.
After all, what is worse than being a alleged political rat? From a recent post here at Mayor Sam.
I just heard an interesting tidbit that it was Fuentes who threw Alarcon under the bus. If RA is pushed out, Fuentes could run and possibly get his seat, finish out his term and still have twelve more years. In any case, it's a no win situation for CD7 and the rest of the city.
...... and from Futch's LA Weekly Piece.
Some Democratic Assembly members in Sacramento, says one legislator who insists upon remaining anonymous, believe that Fuentes sent the tip to L.A. District Attorney Steve Cooley's office that launched the investigation of where Councilman Alarcon really lives.
Thus, one can surmise from Assemblyman Fuente's being the Sacramento Special Interest's "easy piece of ass" when it comes to advancing their respective agendas and its resulting monetary rewards, whoops, contributions, that the end game here is the highest attainable public office.
But to supposedly rat out one of your own, that being a fellow Latino Democrat like Richard Alarcon, what is the ultimate price that Fuentes will have to pay later in his political life? If this is true, what political payback will Alarcon have in store?
We can agree that no neighborhood, private property (remember his pushing of LA CRA's AB 2531?) or a golf course in Sunland-Tujunga, is safe from the ghost-authoring antics of Fuentes.
But shady dealings and political backstabbing do have a price and what the ultimate cost to Fuente's political life may be, one can guess that it will not be cheap.
Your thoughts..............

Sorry Red Snot, but you've exceeded your allotment of one annoying, inaccurate, false, slanderous post per day.

Now fuck off.

Fuentes is responsible for AB2531.

That should be enough to have every property owner in Los Angeles after his hide.

Dear Red Spot,

Keep up the great work! Don't let the Gatto Syndicate of Hired Goons and Thugs discourage, distract or get you off track.

Their day of reckoning is coming. The whole lot of them will be retreating to their foxholes soon! You will remain the last man standing!

Red Spot, it is very interesting that you consider this "ratting out". I consider it a favor to the citizens of Los Angeles.

So protecting a fraud and a devious liar would be a good thing? Where are your ethics? Your spin on this sounds like real ghetto mentality.

I think the "The Worst Legislator in California" is in a district to the west of the Fuentes district.

At least Fuentes never declared war on the first amendment.

Trutanich "ratted out" AlarCON. It was in revenge for AlarCON dissing Trutanich at some event where AlarCON was supposed to give Trutanich some 'face time' with the press, but Trutanich was left out. So Trutanich "walked" the case over to his buddy at the DA's Office.

But I hear that Trutanich had to stand in a long line of people who were at the DA's Office to stick a knife in AlarCON's back.

Nice story all the same.

Adam Schiff (D-Pasadena) is calling on the US Attorney to investigate "corruption in Los Angeles."

Is he a day late and a dollar short? Perhaps it is time that someone investigated the reasons why Richard Alarcon continues to be paid over $170k a year while under indictment, and why the rest of the over paid Los Angeles clowns get paid for not showing up for work.

Red Spot,
Didn't you learn anything in your junior-high oops junior-college class?

You are an "alleged" a illiterate jack-ass who proves the allegations every time to write.

The mess in public agencies is on the hands of Steve Cooley and his Public Integrity office.

They refuse to prosecute public officials who knowingly and willfully violate laws that protect against corruption. There are willful violations of the Public Records Act and the Brown Act at City Hall and other public agencies every day.

While such violations sound small and trivial, they are not. When citizens have prompt and enforced access to public records -- corruption withers on the vine. When citizens get full and proper notice of proposed public actions because the DA is vigorously prosecuting knowing and willful violations of the Brown Act -- corruption withers on the vine.

Cooley has adopted an appalling "hand off" stance with respect to former DA Gil Garcetti's son, Eric Garcetti and other public officials. The result -- City Council continues to hide corrupt actions from the public.

The DA must adopt a "broken windows" approach to corruption enforcement. An indispensable part of this is vigorous enforcement of the Public Records Act and the Brown Act against the festering and corrupt mess at City Hall, County, LAUSD, Metro, and other public agencies.

There are other Rizzos in our public agencies and Cooley needs to put down his cocktail and take up some enforcement work.

Some one should tell the Weekly to start investigating the shenanigans in a certain peron's office in the 43rd AD.
