Los Angeles Politics Hotsheet for Monday

Betty Pleasant (portrayed by TV's LaWanda Page
celebrates the inauguration of Bernard Parks.
In a move truly reminiscent of shutting the barn door after the horse has left, CM and possible Controller candidate, Dennis Zine, has called for reforms at the Department of Building and Safety.

Assemblyman Mike Gatto has reversed course and issued an apology for his rant about not getting paid when Controller John Chiang followed the law and refused to pay lawmakers who did not turn in a balanced state budget on time.  Blogger Paul Hatfield correctly notes that Gatto's apology is appropriate however the issue of the budget mess remains. Gatto, who received tough treatment from KFI's John and Ken last week, can be relieved the shock jocks are reportedly on vacation this week.

LA rainmaker and former Mayoral candidate Steve Sobroff, brought to help Frank McCourt turn around the Dodgers, has left the beleagured sports franchise.  Sobroff was not looking forward to having to work with overseers appointed by Major League Baseball commissioner, Bud Selig.

The always classy Betty Pleasant might have been down in the dumps that Councilman Bernard Parks was re-elected in the last election.  However she can take solace that Parks was recently sworn in for his third and final term.

Not going to cover Lord Englander's crowning ceremony?

What's going on, he finally get to you?

Even Ron Kaye isn't saying anything.

A grand party with all of his ball washers to congratulate him.

I know it's standard for POTUS to have balls, but when did it become standard for a CM to have an extravagant function?

And then Lord Englander said, let them eat cake as I deliver for unions and developers running city hall.
