Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Thursday

The count of terminated building inspectors who put self-enrichment (and wishes of political figures?) before safety, has risen to three with the firing of building mechanical inspector Albert Acosta for taking bribes. But if one reads the "Puffy City Maven", you will find this headline "Despite FBI Probe, City Hall Tackles Reforms in Building and Safety".
Remember this current CD 14 City Councilman who you might recall went to Princeton University? We can ascertain that his post graduate studies did not include proper education on the usage of the "yes or no vote button" as witness with his difficulties yesterday during the "red light camera circus/ discussion at City Hall.
With the outpouring of support from many of his constituents and KFI's John and Ken, the "Infant Assemblyman from Silverlake/Canyon Drive can chill out and drink knowing that food stuffs await him and his family. We wonder if Gatto's wife will pen a letter of appreciation, kinda like what she did pertaining to our bloggin coverage? 
From the rumor department, will MEAT blow bloggin kisses to voters in the upcoming 45th Assembly District Race on the behalf of Mike Gatto?
Your thoughts..............
Scott Johnson in CD 14

Trujillo's hire is a smart move by Gatto. He knows all the players in the 45th AD.

Not that smart because all the players also know him. I can just see the mailers now - Skelton would be proud.

A few of the inspectors arrested have direct ties to at least two different city council offices.

Let this be a lesson to you, Red Spot. Crime Doesn't Pay.

If you look at Antonio Villar's history, crime certainly does pay.

I wonder if any of those busted inspectors were responsible for giving the green light to Huizar's El Sereno home.

Do you think that Gatto's wife actually wrote that letter? Beauty queens, ain't so smart. Remember the one that made Sarah Palin look like a genius?

As of today 4 BUILDING INSPECTORS FIRED AND FBI investigating. Just this afternoon another one. You know this is going to lead to the politicians.

A Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety employee under scrutiny during an internal investigation into bribe-taking has lost his job, officials said Thursday.

Frank Rojas, 47, was fired on June 16 but has filed an appeal with the city's Civil Service Commission, the panel that hears challenges to such disciplinary actions at City Hall, said Maggie Whelan, general manager of the city's Personnel Department.

Whelan did not give the reason for the firing and Rojas has not responded to requests for comment. But an internal memo sent by the top official at Building and Safety said Rojas was put on leave last month as a result of a department investigation of allegations that cash was provided in exchange for building permits.

Rojas is the fourth employee at the department to face termination since the start of the internal review in January,
