" Victimcrat and career politician Gil Cedillo, hard at work in Sacramento"
Soon to be on file with the State of Cailfornia's "Victim Compensation and Government Claims Board" (Pause, while I resist the urge to puke), From the LA Times,
Gil Cedillo, a Los Angeles Democrat who was just elected to the Assembly after being termed out of the Senate, has filed a claim against the state on behalf of all state legislators alleging that the 18% cut in pay and benefits ordered by the California Citizens Compensation Commission was illegal. The pay cut reduced the salaries for legislators from $116,208 to $95,291 effective Dec. 7, 2009, and reduced other compensation, including per diem expenses and car allowances. (Hey Gil, what no DVD player in the Lexus? No wine per diem like what Nunez was allowed? So sad!)
One can agree that Cedillo's filing is audacious, considering the current state economic crisis that the likes of Cedillo, help to create in his years in Sacramento. But Cedillo must have gone tone deaf recently, to be so incredulous in going forward with this PR disaster. Great job Gil!! Maybe your old staffer Ed Headington can work pro bono to rehabilitate your image?
But then why waste the time? For in two years, Cedillo will leave the state payroll and seek gainful employment elsewhere. Mayby CD 1? Does MALDEF need a spokesperson? Will Nativo be in jail and thus, create an opening at the Mexican American Political Association (MAPA), for someone to champion the continuing cause of voter fraud? The options await in 2013.
Meanwhile, as Cedillo nears the January 3, 2011 start date of his last term as Assemblyman, many of us in his district will wonder if Cedillo is more concern about retrieving back pay for peddling one bill in his time in Sacramento, than caring that most, if not all within his district, are victims of his lack of positive action in Sacramento?
Someone may want to start handing out the political victim forms to his constituents?
