"Team Huizzy/Villar is watching you!!"
Hola from a undisclosed location within CD 14 where the prying eyes of Team Huizzy/Villar, cannot see our efforts in bring you the latest on the dirty chisme that suffices for campaign news.
From the "private hilltop bunker" above CD 14/1/South Pasadena, Parke Skelton unleashes his latest attack that the LA Weekly covers this morning.
Parke's M.O. is all over this "leak" as the Weekly reports that somehow CD 14 Candidate Rudy Martinez had an authentic LAPD badge on his possession and was linked to former LAPD Deputy Chief David Kalish, who was one of the first openly gay command officers on the force.
Kalish, who Martinez met as a LAPD Explorer Scout and is an employer for the candidate's house-flipping firm Piedmont Financial, was relieved of duty in 2003 while under investigation for allegations that he had molested a explorer under his charge. But the Weekly cites a reliable source who states that Kalish "was exonerated in court". Martinez who was a explorer at the same time of the alleged molestation, cites Kalish as a mentor and father figure in his response to the Weekly post today.
For those who have met Martinez and listen to his life story, one will find that he has the upmost respect for law enforcement and would find it hard that he would do anything to lose the trust of many, that he had befriended in the law enforcement community.
But what is amusing here in Parke's latest attempt to smear Martinez and introduce "innuendos" into the CD 14 elections proceedings, is that fact that Councilman Jose Huizar has used LAPD and General Services Police resources on multiple occasions to "monitor
actions"( ask Elena Popp what happen to her at the "Great CD 14 Filibuster") of CD 14 constituents, that would cast Councilman Huizar in a negative light (notice photo above?).
but most egregious here is the "smear by association" of former LAPD Deputy Chief David Kalish and Rudy Martinez. Lets hold nothing back here by stating that while the badge issue is one worthy of further vetting, the fact that the same "LAPD tipster" would seek to introduce some sort of "inappropiate innuendo" regarding the relationship between Kalish and Martinez, deserves to be denounced and condemn by all within the diverse CD 14 community. Can we discuss the issues, not supposed innuendos regarding two now business associates past relationship?
