Lindsay needs a PR advisor. She's arrogant and abrasive.

The airport could save money by leaving this patronage position vacant.

I'd sure like to hear from that poster who earlier said that Molina was hired on his merits and was the best person for the job.

Why a picture of Hahn instead of Molina, who the story is actually about?

Yeah, why is there a big photo of Janice Hahn? SHE didn't do the "sexting." Implying guilt by association or something?

I wasn't the poster that said it, but I endorse it. I do a lot of business with LAWA and Mike is, and was, one of the most competent people there.

Gina Marie does indeed need a PR advisor, because he held that job and did a good job of it.

He was hired on the merits and was the best person for the job.

A bunch of know nothings are criticizing him; it is OK to criticize what he did to create the problem for whch he resigned, but do not think he did a bad job of his work; he was excellent in his job.

Mike doesn't deserve the piling on that Weiner did; Mike is a stand-up guy and Weiner is, well, a weinie.

Mike is a "stand up guy", is that a pun?

Because Mike helped you is hardly an endorsement of the sum total of his capabilities in office.

Suppose you were interviewing him for this job and you asked him if he thought it was OK for city employees to use city phones for sexting, and he said yes, would you hire him?

Given all the trouble that public officials have gotten themselves into recently, can you imagine the level of bad judgment that it took for Mike to do what he did? And that's to say nothing of the fact that it's illegal.

And if he didn't do anything all the bad, don't you think that he or Gina Marie would have said something? The charge on TV was that he admitted to sexting. If he was just stealing office supplies you would expect that he would at least deny the sexting charge.

Read what he said. He sent no sexually inappropriate texts. But he did mix his business and personal texts and they were on a LAWA phone.

A disgruntled former high ranking person at LAWA has a vendetta for Gina Marie and he has created this inquiry to damage her. Molina was collateral damage.

This person was responsible for a Public Records Request, as he has been feeding CBS and The Mayor's office with filth.

Well, we hope he's happy, because he has made LAWA a lot less efficient by losing a good guy like Molina.

But, we all know who did this, and he will soon feel sorry for his foul deeds. Nothing illegal will be done, but his business future is not bright. (Not that it is great guns right now).

What comes around goes around.

If the person responsible obtained documents using the Public Records Act, how could he/she be filling the Mayor's Office and CBS with filth? Wouldn't the documents speak for themselves?

Take it from someone who works 4 LAWA that Molina was not a standup guy. He resigned b/cuz he sent texts 2 other men propositioning sex. He offered 2 pay 2 fly men to C him when he was on LAWA biz trips even some w/ Lindsey in the same hotel as him.

People who do business with LAWA like U call him stand up b/cuz he was as drrrty as it gets and gives U the contracts that U want. Lindsey likes him b/cuz she's drrrty 2. Forget the retirees everyone working at LAWA 2day doesnt agree w/ U.

Now U know Y Lindsey wants 2 keep the texts outta sight.

Da big deal is dat he was settin’ up sex wit a bunch of different dudes when he was travelin’ on da city’s bidness and usin’ da city cellphone ta do it. Settin’ up sex with lots o’ different men in three years and sendin’ lots of really dirty texts that leave nothin’ to da ‘magination. Should have bought his own celly for dat. Best of all is dat Lindsey told everyone dat she wantd him ta replace her when she leave. She know how ta pick ‘em, dat girl genius. Dat Mayor who be baggin’ broadcasters be one smart cookie for hirin’ her! Same go for Janice Hahn havin’ Molina as chief for 8 year now maybe she take him to Congress ‘cuz he fit in perfect in da capital as sex pig pal fo Weiner.

Yeah sure he resigned over texts that were just jokes. Lindsey would not have let her lap dog do that.

He was setting up sex with men in his texts.
