Boulevard Sentinel Editor Tom Topping (-1 and 2) with Councilman Jose "Charro Huizzy Corleone" Huizar. How would the councilman grade LA Times Reporter David Zahniser?
Great Wednesday morning to all from the "Cut and Paste Republic of CD 14" where Councilman Charro Huizzy Corleone is shovel-ready at anytime to dig himself a bigger hole of contradictions, regarding his actions in the Listgate Scandal
Upon the release of all the Listgate documents yesterday by the Rudy Martinez Campaign, Councilman Charro Huizzy Corleone felt compel to email his supposed supporters a statement/spin on the LA Times story
that broke the Listgate Scandal. (**
Please note that Huizar's statement was posted yesterday at 12:37PM on the comment section)
Judging by the bloggin spin from MEAT, errrr, Team Huizzy, one would think that former Councilman Charro Huizzy Corleone Staffer and Candidate Rudy Martinez Mother Juanita Martinez's profile photo would be posted in every CD 14 Council Office and post office for all to see. "Wanted! Juanita Martinez for exposing Councilman Charro Huizzy Corleone's secret CD 14 Constituent Discrimination Lists", good try Trujillo.
From Councilman Charro Huizzy Corleone: "The list was put together by a former staffer who worked in my office and was intended to be a simple way of making sure that my office stay in touch with community leaders and groups".
The LA Times reports: Although Huizar tried to pin the list controversy (Listgate) on a single staffer whom he would not identify, three former Huizar aides have told the Times that the councilman worked closely with several of his employees on the lists, changing scores when he disagreed with their assessments.
From Councilman Charro Huizzy Corleone: "While the lists have not been used in years, it was not as my opponent claims, some type of Nixonian enemys list. It most definitely was not use to determine who received services or got their pothole filled".
The LA Times reports: "Huizar said Tuesday that his staff stopped using the list several years ago but he couldn't remember exactly when".
** Mayor Sam Exclusive: The El Sereno List
notes a "Hector Salazar, New Director of the El Sereno Seniors Center". Los Angeles Recreation and Parks Director Hector Salazar was assigned to the El Sereno Seniors Center in the Summer of 2010.
This shows that the El Sereno List was being revised most recently as last summer. In addition, "Julio Torres, Editor of the Our Town Magazine", (** The only person to get a perfect score "3 and 5" on the list) did not start publication of the magazine to until 2010
., as the magazine's Wikipedia link notes.
The LA Times continues: "While Martinez publicly released copies of the lists. Huizar has repeatedly rebuffed requests from the Times for copies of them, say that they are exempted from the state's public records law. His spokesman (Rick "Coca Puffs" Coca?) said the public would be better served by shielding the councilman's decision-making process and keeping the list concealed"
Maybe concealment is the only option Councilman Charro Huizzy Corleone has when the weight of the facts, contradicts his public statements?
