Los Angeles Politics Hotsheet for Thursday

Twenty years ago today, Rodney King got pulled over on the 210 freeway in Lake View Terrace. About a year later, Los Angeles went ballistic.

Tonight, LAUSD Board Seat candidates Tamar Galatzan and Louis Pugliese face off once again. This candidate forum is co-sponsored by the 31st District PTSA and the League of Women Voters and is being held at the Sherman Oaks Center for Enriched Studies, 18605 Erwin St., Tarzana. Showtime is 7pm.

Responsible Mountain Bike enthusiasts understand that you can't go around carving out BMX tracks on Open Space protected parkland. Unfortunately, one or more irresponsible knuckleheads thought it was a good idea to butcher up such an area in CD2 for their own entertainment. Kris Sabo and myself visited the site, reported the destruction, and thanks to the rapid response and assistance by Parks & Rec and Councilman Krekorian, the BMX track is no more, and precious open space is happy once again.

Wisconsin Governor Walker is going rogue and now is in defiance of a court order to open up the people's house. On a related note; Is there a link between illiteracy and conservative voting? I hope you're sitting down;  Why yes there is ya morans!

Richard Alarcon is trying to steal money from the Lopez Canyon Amenities Trust Fund, again. This time to the tune of almost half a million dollars. The Trust Fund was established in 1991 to benefit the residents that live adjacent to the now closed Lopez Canyon landfill.  Unfortunately, very few of those dollars have ever found their way to where they were designated, instead they continue to fuel Alarcon's pet projects in areas far from Lopez Canyon. Alarcon's motion goes before the City Council on Friday.

What the fuck were the morons in this Council District thinking WHEN THEY ELECTED THIS CROOK?

If you elect someone based on their surname, you are jeopardizing far more important qualities, like honesty and integrity.

Higby, who did you endorse when Alarcon ran for this Council seat? Did you work hard enough to keep him out?

Blame yourselves, not the crook.

You were the ones who put him in the job. Don't be so surprised when a crook steals.

Why is the indicted felon still allowed to do anything in City Council?

Why do Joe and Kristine Szabo think they can tell people what to do?

Who elected them?

We ride our bikes every weekend. It's public property and we pay taxes.

Mountain biking is a green, healthy activity. You can get exercise. And it is carbon neutral.

What is missing in their lives that they have to spend their time telling us what to do?

Incredibly sad.

Why do you not allow discussion of Phil's disconnected comment about Vernon?

He asked why don't the Vernon people go to their own City Hall?

This proves that Phil talks without knowing:

1. What the problem is in Vernon
2. Why they were in LA City Hall
3. What the discussion was about

Clearly, Phil was there, but he didn't understand the subject whatsoever.

Yet, he decided to comment about it, thus proving that he talks out of his ass.

For you to not allow us to discuss this, since you insist that he's smart, is more of a poor reflection on you.
