Los Angeles Politics Hotsheet for Wednesday
Happy Hanukkah from all of us at Mayor Sam!
Meanwhile, 800,000 out of work US citizens lost their unemployment benefits as of yesterday at midnight. Thank you GOP! Now get back to work you corporate lap-dogs and protect those tax cuts for millionaires!

|Say it ain't so Rudy!|
According to the story, Rudy Martinez once operated as a board member for an astro-turf pro-smoking lobbying group backed by Phillip-Morris back in the mid 1990's.

Word on the street is that more baggage is soon to be coughed up regarding "Mr. Flip My Lungs".
California's next Attorney General, Kamala Harris, announced her victory today, and her potential on the California political landscape is already attracting attention. Speaking of Kamala, have you had the chance to see this precious photo?

And finally, as hard as it may be to believe, Joe Scarborough, may be the last Republican left with his brain still intact.
