Is LA Wave Newspaper "Soulvine Columnist" Betty Pleasant supporting Janice Hahn for Congress?

This being Thursday means its time for more South LA observations from the newly-visual repaired (at least one eye) Soulvine Columnist Betty Pleasant of the historic LA Wave Newspaper. And for those who wonder what African-American candidate Pleasant was endorsing in the 44th Congressional District, we cut and paste this for your review.
The California Supreme Court last week rejected two challenges to the new voting districts drawn by the citizens commission. The justices voted unanimously to reject the two lawsuits filed by Republicans to overturn the new congressional and state Senate boundaries and they chose to remain mum as to why they kept the new boundaries intact. One of the challenged districts was the newly configured 44th Congressional District where Rep. Janice Hahn is handling an empty suit (Assemblyman Isadore Hall) and an empty dress (Congresswoman Luara Richardson) who are seeking to claim that office as a “Black seat.” Hahn has already obtained the endorsement of the relevant Los Angeles city officials and now she’s picked up the support of the leaders of Long Beach, South Gate and Carson, as well as the support of more labor unions that you can shake a stick at. Oh, and the Soulvine, as well. 

Your thoughts ..............
