Los Angeles Politics Hotsheet for Wednesday

AEG is threatening that if the City Council doesn't get behind the Farmer's Field Stadium by early summer the entire city will be leveled by an Alien Death Ray.
If it's Wednesday in Los Angeles, it's time for an update from the great state of Wisconsin! Today, we now find that 4 Republican Senators have had recall petitions filed against them.

If the recalls are even partially successful the balance of power could shift in the Wisconsin Senate.
Gov Jerry Brown has finally found a rational California GOP lawmaker that will join him on his statewide budget tour. Assemblyman Cameron Smyth has agreed to attend a forum on Thursday in his home town of Santa Clarita. Gov.

Today marks the one year anniversary of the BP oil disaster. And it's still a big mess.
