Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Tuesday
Charlie says the Mayor is shoveling BS. Charlie tells TMZ ... the picture was actually shot in Charlie's hotel suite at Hotel El Ganzo, where Charlie had just opened his bar, Sheenz earlier in the evening.
What's more, Charlie says the Mayor hung out in the suite for WAY more than 3 minutes. Charlie says, "I memorize 95 pages a week, so the last thing that I am is memory challenged. We hung out for the better part of 2 hours, discussing his L.A. roots, his poignant bullet campaign as well as his 3 AM lawn-watering tactics."
Charlie continues, "He's a terrific guy, a great Mayor and he can drink with the best of 'em: Me. Quite a memorable night indeed."
Then there is this other small fact via Sheen.
Charlie says, there were lots of women in the suite, including at least one porn star and several other hot women
We wonder if former DWP General Manager and noted Mayor Villar "drinking/dining buddy" David Nahai, would care to comment on the mayor's drinking proclivities?
** On this day, January 8, 2013, the classless, crass, devoid of character politico known as the Infant Assemblyman Mike Gatto, announced his intentions to replace Tom LaBonge as the next CD 4 City Councilman in 2015. This via his targeted proposal to craft a state law that would prohibit the City of Los Angeles from ticketing motorist who park at broken parking meters.
** On this day, January 8, 2013, LAPD achieve a historic milestone and rest assure angelinos, your increased garbage fees had nothing to do with it.

This goal of Mayor Villar was accomplished via changing the uniforms of 60 General Services Police officers.
** On this day, January 8, 2013, City Attorney Candidate Assemblyman Mike Feuer, has anointed himself the front runner in his campaign to unseat current City Attorney Carmen Trutanich. We note the following from his campaign spokesman "Private Citizen/Political Consultant" John Shallman.
Feuer has raised $898,000, and will receive another $300,000 in public matching funds. In a release, John Shallman, Feuer's strategist, crowed that Feuer "has a commanding lead in significant endorsements and funds raised... The momentum behind Mike's campaign is building at just the right time."
What other historic footnote connected to "Private Citizen/Political Consultant" John Shallman, will transpire on this date? Stay tune!
