Lies do cause political harm Carmen.
Another Big Money Campaign Loss for "Private Citizen/ Political Consultant" John Shallman.
Great morning to all in Los Angeles, California and thee United States of America!
As is customary after each election cycle, this blogger honors one of Los Angeles most beloved sports writer, the late Allan "Mud" Malamud by offer our post election musing "Notes on the Primary Election Scorecard". There are winners, definitely losers and other relevant observations on yesterday's election proceedings. But most important are your thoughts on yesterday's results
Dare we utter the four letter name of yesterday's biggest political loser? NUCH!
Who once again consulted his way through mega campaign funding only to sink again the political aspirations of his client? We may risk another "cease and desist order", but we must or "shall(man)" name the "swift boated, private citizen/political consultant", or maybe not .
What is another election cycle without a crying baby moment from the Infant Assemblyman Mike Gatto? Little Mikey will have multiple political tantrum days ahead as only 56% of voters selected him
over Republican Greg Kirkorian who spent less than $10,000 on yesterday's vote.
The Calderon Family Machine of Montebello took a major hit yesterday as Tom Calderon fail to advance
to the General Election in the 58th Assembly District. But nephew Ian Calderon (son of Chuck) placed second
in the 57th Assembly District.
Congressman Howard Berman is on political life support.
** From the 39th AD, a losing streak continues for a "certain ex. blogger" who could not reverse his string of campaign losses, even with the help of some of his CD 15 campaign chums.
Lastly, President Barack "H" Obama.
Conservative common sense in Wisconsin.
Local Republican Political Consultant John Thomas for his work on behalf of District Attorney Candidate Alan Jackson.
Former Oak Hill Resident and Progressive Political Consultant Parke Skelton for his "Swift Boating" of the Trutanich Campaign.
San Gabriel Valley Republican Assembly Candidates Joe Gardner in the 48th AD and Matthew Lin in the 49th AD, who both bested their top democratic opponants.
Raul Bocanegra in the 39th AD.
Santa Monica's Richard Bloom's outstanding showing in the 50th AD, finishing ahead of Torie Osborn.
Luis Lopez placing ahead of Gil Cedillo's candidate Arturo Chavez and behind "The Machine's" Jimmy "PACman" Gomez. Chavez, who was hurt badly by the Kinde Durkee Scandal can build upon his positive community leagacy by supporting Lopez in the General Election.
Adrin Nazarian will surely face millions more of Ed Voice's IE money after his victory in the 46th. As usual, we must note the excellent consulting work via Eric Hacopian, on behalf of the Nazarian Campaign.
....... lastly, there is winning in losing for these two republican candidates.
Getting 16% of the vote against Assembly Speaker John Perez will not assure Activist Jose Aguilar of taking any oath of office in the near future. But he and his friend Phil Jennerjahn can share a common bond from yesterday's election.
While not having the same success as fellow cheesehead Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, Jennerjahn like Aguilar, placed second in the 28th Congressional District to Congressman Adam Schiff with 17 % of the vote. Thus, both "Flounder" and "Jennerduh" advance to the General Election in November. WHAT A COUNTRY!! (** and great job both of you, especially for former cellar-dweller Phil).
Your thoughts ..............
Scott Johnson in CD 14.
