** Afternoon Update:
Hugh gets maximum fine from Ethics Commission. From the Times
, "Commissioner Marlene Canter asked Hugh’s attorney, Kenneth P. White, whether or not someone had asked Hugh to carry out his money-laundering activities. White refused to answer and said later that Hugh had deliberately made a choice not to seek a lower fine in exchange for “cooperating against someone else.”
Mayor Antonio Villar at Councilman Huizar's Campaign Kickoff.
As David Zahniser reported in an April 30, 2011 story, "Between June 2008 and July 2009, then-Villaraigosa Deputy Chief of Staff Jimmy Blackman scheduled at least five meetings with Hugh, including two dinners, according to his appointment calendar. Blackman is now chief of staff to Councilman Dennis Zine".
Someone might want to ask Blackman what was discussed in those meetings.
