Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Tuesday

Who will replace now Congresswoman Janice Hahn in CD 15?
Great election morning to all in CD 15 as today heads towards the mid-day mark. A least 10-20% of the register voters will have the chance to send a resounding message to the operatives of the City of Los Angeles Political Machine by electing LAPD Senior Lead Officer Joe Buscaino to City Council. In actuality, the absentee ballots stored in boxes at the City Clerk may speak to that if they could, but rest assure that Team Buscaino and challenger Assemblyman Warren Furutani with his Mayor Villar/Labor allies will gather up all the register voters they can muster up to 7:59 P.M. Once the polls close, Team Buscaino will gather at the Crowne Plaza Hotel to await the election results which we will live blog here at Mayor Sam. ** Watch for results of absentees at about 8:45 P.M. If they break 60-40% for Buscaino, then say hello Councilman Buscaino.
** One contentious issue that the new CD 15 office holder will have to deal with is the LAPD policy on impounds of vehicles driven by non-license drivers. The Los Angeles Police Commission will meet this evening in Northridge and expect a big crowd thanks to the likes of KFI's Johns and Ken. If one cares, take the time to read the letter of Dan Rosenberg to Mayor Antonio Villar. Rosenberg lost his 25 year old son to an unlicensed driver and have not received any response from the Mayor's office.
** The City of Los Angeles Recreation and Parks Department have set up a website to showcase the three options to replace the toxic brownfields creative by Occupy LA. at City Hall. The irony here is that the landscaping cost of either option will include paying the gardeners caretakers represented by SEIU 721, who were a big supporter of Occupy LA. 
** Nice tidbit from Simone Wilson aka "The Snarky One" at the LA Weekly on the Assembly voting record of CD 9 City Council aspirant Assemblyman Mike Davis. It seems that Assemblyman Davis will fit right in to the horseshoe as he only voted "no" 0.01% of the time in Sacramento. 
Your thoughts ..............

Gee, when Assemblyman Davis votes with his party all the time, you imply that's a bad thing.

But when the Republicans in the legislature voted 100 percent in lockstep with Grover "Drown Government in the Bathtub" Norquist and the Tea Baggers, that's a good thing.

Don't expect you to be liberal or even moderate, but at least be consistent.
