Is CD 14 Councilman Jose Huizar once again in violation of Ethics Commission rules?
According to multiple sources, Councilman Huizar violated the Ethics Commission's "Blackout Rules" which prohibit sitting officeholders from promoting their name and image, once they file papers for re-election.
Councilman Huizar pulled papers on November 8, 2010
. That was five days before the Valley Blvd Bridge Block on Saturday, November 13, 2010. The following photos above (all taken by this blogger), show multiple banners which identify clearly Councilman Jose Huizar. According to my sources, Ethic Commission rules state that publicly-funded events, cannot promote the image and name of the officeholder, once they declare for re-election.
Further, its apparent that Councilman Huizar sought to "gain political capital, through the act of giving". It seems that Councilman Huizar was engage in politicizing his Turkey Giveaway
. This after a filing documentation with the Ethics Commission and then publicizing the endeavor on his official city web page.
** Morning update: This twitter has been remove.
Interesting that Councilman Huizar feels that it is O.K. for him to use his official, public web page to dispense information on his challengers for re-election.
Thus, while the likes of Parke and Mikey are digging years back into the past of Rudy Martinez, Councilman Huizar once again is flirting with violating ethic rules and tapping the Attorney Stephen Kaufman's speed-dial button.
