Parke may remember this 2003 CD 14 Scandal and the results?
|"Don't ask about the status of the 80 FAKE NEIGHBORHOOD WATCHES"|
** Evening Update via the LA Weekly: As the smoke clears, Parke's latest smear job nets one Juan Carlos Jaramillo's "Financial Success" company as the source of supposed financial reinburstment for a Carlos Lira. Notice no financial links to Nick Pacheco or Rudy Martinez.
An afternoon update.
The Los Angeles County District Attorney has launched an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the returned contributions, associated with employees of former CD 14 Councilman Nick Pacheco's Law Firm.
In what is becoming the stardard M.O. of a Parke Skelton consulted campaign, a complaint against the opposing candidate or supporter, is made to the DA's Office of Public Integrity and in rare cases like the Assemblyman Mike Gatto Residency Issue (Parke's former client), an investigation moves forward, until today.
One should credit Parke for his counter-stroke this afternoon. Take a "stay at home blogger", add an young journalistic maven, mixed with a paid cadre of cut and pasters and you get "political spindrift" which clouds over the facts. Speaking of facts, what were the results of the 2003 Skelton's crafted attacks against the supposed corrupt Madres del Este de Los Angeles-Santa Isabel after the mud dried?
The facts after the bloggin leap........
Text of the memo sent by The City Ethic Commission follows:
July 24, 2003
Mothers of East Los Angeles – Santa Isabel

Re: Whistleblower Complaint #03-292
This letter is to inform you of the final disposition of the
above-referenced complaint received by this office on February 21, 2003,
regarding a potential misuse of funds received by MELASI. Our inquiry found
insufficient evidence of a violation of laws within City Ethics Commission’s
jurisdiction to warrant further action. Accordingly, the complaint has been
placed in a closed status.
Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

....... and in 2011, Mayor Villar's "mijo", with Parke's help seeks to use the same game plan. But will a victory result on March 8? A informed electorate will hopefully decide.
