" Sorry Jose, but Antonio taught me about throwing bad political baggage under the bus"
"Timesheets? Payroll registers? Payroll documents? Where will these documents lead us next in the saga of CLARTSgate?"
The documents are coming!
City of Los Angeles City Controller Wendy Greuel had a "fleeting Laura Chick moment" and found the political will to do the right thing. Thus, we are nearing the moment when all will have the ability to discern CD 14 City Councilman Jose Huizar's usage of the funds bequested to his councilmatic fiefdom via the CLARTS Fund.
Timing, or should we say political timing, is paramount when documents that paint a politico in a bad light, are made public. And tomorrow may be the biggest "Bad News Friday" in Councilman Jose Huizar's "enable by Papi Antonio political career".
What fiscal expenditures, may we find when the documents requested by CD 14 City Council Candidate Rudy Martinez become public? If one were to judge from just the verbiage use by Chief Deputy Controller Claire Bartels in her email response, Councilman Huizar's idea of community amenities was paying "staff" and for what work? Will surely spark renew discussions on Councilman Huizar's usage of this community amenities fund.
If the documents show that Councilman Huizar did use the majority of the CLARTS Fund transfer to his "council office account" for staff salaries, or were dispensed base upon political loyalty and influence. One should surely expect a CD 14 CLARTSgate backlash that may whip Huizar from office in March.
