Bloggin Happy Hour Musings on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Friday

Bloggin TGIF to all as another political week meets its appointed end at a local watering hole near you. As you indulge away the stresses of the previous work week (in a responsible way of course) Here are some newsworthy topics and tips for the next political week---Scott Johnson.
Corruption Sells! This was the impression last evening at the Ya Basta Mayoral Candidate Forum in Boyle Heights, as the former KRLA Talk Show Host Kevin James garnered the best reception from among the audience for his pledge to root out corruption at City Hall. James was joined by fellow candidates Emanuel Pleitez and Jan Perry, while Wendy Greuel was a last minute no show. Eric Garcetti had never committed to attend.
Maybe why City Controller and 2013 Mayoral Candidate Wendy Greuel was a no show last night at the Ya Basta event was the need to maximize the most media coverage for her latest shallow pledge to seek out and find hidden funds from among 500 special accounts. We would hope that one of those special funds has to do with her former council colleague, standing with her in the photo above. 
.The lovely  mug shot photos of  Mr.and Mrs. CD2/7 City Councilman Richard "Zorro Marxist" Alarcon  will soon be joined by the booking photo of his staffer Miguel Figueras, who was charged today with misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter for the death of pedestrian Gary Woodford via collision with the city-owned vehicle being driven by AlarCON's longtime staffer. 
.In the words of Forrest Gump and hopefully for the political career of City Attorney Carmen Trutanich, his "Stupid says, Stupid does Moment", is behind him. Stupid  was making a pledge that was needless and  to compound the original act of political stupidity, was not having the resources in place to make good on the pledge.. But as Nuch takes out papers for a possible second term as City Attorney and as he makes the rounds city-wide (showing up last evening at the Ya Basta event), the rehabilitation of his tarnish image is going to be an arduous journey

** What community will be the dumping ground for the former Miramonte School Principal?
** Is another Redistricting lawsuit pending?
** Is the GRYD Program covering a recent incident at a SNL site to protect a connected non-profit associated with Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and CD 14 City Councilman Jose Huizar?

Your thoughts ..............
Scott Johnson in CD 14
