Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Thursday
** We had a noontime dedication to Mattie from "Mini Amin Wesson and the City Clowncil Dancers"
ANOTHER SOULVINE THURSDAY
AND FINALLY — Come on now; let’s have it — what’s wrong with Jesse Jackson Jr.? The man is a member of Congress and holds a precious Democratic seat and he cannot be allowed to be off in a medical facility somewhere being treated for some condition that nobody wants to talk about. This is ridiculous. The man was elected by the people; he is public property and nothing about him is private. His Chicago constituents and The Soulvine need to know what is wrong with Jesse Jackson Jr. Is he in rehab? Is he in an insane asylum? Does he have AIDS? Is he well enough to be re-elected in November? Heck, we need to know, because all this mystery around him can cause us to lose a valuable Democratic seat in the House of Representatives. It’s too bad he didn’t pull this stunt during the primary election when the voters could have chosen another Democrat to face the Republican. But no-o-o he’s doing it now.
Don't expect Betty to get offer any of the Jackson's Budweiser business anytime soon.
** Lee Baca is calling upon his political friends and county political office holders to return their stinking badges to him pronto.
** City of Los Angeles Chief Budget Guy Miguel Santana reassures angelinos that LA will not become the "Stockton/Mammoth Lakes/San Bernardino" of Los Angeles County. Would Richard Riordan care to comment?
** KCBS/KCAL Investigated Reporter David Goldstein once again has dire news about another top City of Los Angeles official. Wonder what the response from Mayor Villar will be this time?
