CD 14 City Councilman Jose Huizar Campaign's veracity going up in smoke.
This statement in a recent campaign mailer
just earned Councilman Huizar's Campaign its second "Cease and Desist Letter" in their quest to pin supposed truths on the Rudy Martinez Campaign.
"Martinez has also taken $1000 in contributions from an illegal marijuana dispensary that had been ordered to shut down the City Attorney. (Contributions from Paul and Leno Sislin, owners Sunset Discount Dispensaries."
More after the bloggin leap.
Sadly, especially for longtime Eagle Rock Business Owners Paul and Leno Sislin, the fact that the Councilman Jose Huizar Campaign would wrongly attribute the ownership of the Sunset Discount Dispensaries to them when a little further fact-checking would of disclose the true owner
, they are now force to take legal action to restore their good standing.
As the Rudy Martinez Campaign notes, Mr. Sislin owns numerous commercial properties in the Eagle Rock area which house small businesses that are staples in the community, such as Coffee Table, Lemon Grass, the Taco Spot, the Nail Forum among many others. In the attack mailer, Mr. Huizar states that “Martinez has taken $1,000 in contributions from illegal marijuana dispensary that had been ordered to shut down the City Attorney. [Contributions from Paul and Leno Sislin, owners Sunset Discount Dispensaries].”
As a result of the statement and false accusations, Mr. Sislin has submitted a cease and desist letter (attached) to Mr. Huizar’s campaign along with a demand for immediate corrective action from Mr. Huizar and his campaign. The owner of record of Sunset Discount Providers is Mr. Shant Makarian.
Thus, once again as we saw in the bogus "duplicate badge scandal", Team Huizar conveniently skips over the facts in their wanton pursuit of smearing Rudy Martinez. This time the political collateral damage is to the good name of the Sislin Family.
