Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Monday

Bringing Back Broadway Executive Director Jessica Wethington McLean
Former Downtown Business Improvement District (BID) E.D. Russell Brown.
As the Downtown News reported on the controversy over the termination of Russell Brown as the Historic Downtown BID Executive Director Russell Brown, Councilman Jose Huizar was none too happy about seeing "his guy" being kicked to the Broadway curve. Thus, last Friday Councilman Huizar sent Bringing Back Broadway E.D. Jessica Wethington McLean to the Historic Downtown BID special meeting on the executive director controversy, to enunciate Councilman Huizar's feelings .......and the results were not pretty.
According to sources, McLean attempted to lay down the Huizzy way, with no conditions, to the Board of Directors which provoked a sharp exchange between McLean and Downtown Developer Tom Gilmore. The net result is that the Historic Downtown BID Board of Directors stood their ground and Team Huizzy came out looking less than professional.
** Coliseum employees sure know how to game the system when it comes to paying itself perks and no surprise that the "Valley Greuel" that daylights as the City Controller is pandering with another shallow audit that doubles as a name recognition exercise. 
** Governor Jerry "Moonbeam II" Brown will be front and center in the latest AEG production, as the Governor signs the Farmers Field Bill that grants special eniviromental exemptions to the Corporate Welfare City-State of AEG LA LIVE..
** Where are local leaders such as Mayor Antonio Villar and County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky imploring their fellow Democrats to "stay the heck away" from the anticipated OBAMAJAMAGEDDON traffic nightmare that will descend on West LA today?
