TGIF Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine

The "Old Gray Collectivist Hag on Spring Street", doubles down on its endorsement of West LA Political Soul Mate Mike Feuer for City Attorney.
"Old Gray Collectivist Hag on Spring Street"
If anyone thought that this would be the day the (West) LA Times would turn on one of its own, that being a West LA Liberal Democratic Politico, then the awaited "Koch Brothers Times Era" has not dawned on Ciudad de Los Angeles ......, yet. 
Lets today's reaffirmation of "agenda editorials" via the "Old Gray Collectivist Hag on Spring Street's" endorsement of AB 109 Co-Sponsor Mike Feuer for City Attorney, remind you that the former "fishwrap of record", still plays a vital role as the cities media outlet for the insider elites.
Despite mounting evidence of troubling ethical issues from the Mike Feuer for City Attorney Campaign, the Old Gray Collectivist Hag Editorial Board prioritizes political regionalism over municipal reality, in an endorsement not seen since its shilling for fellow Westside elite cocktail socialite Chris Essel.
As the Old Gray Collectivist Hag Opinion Scribes scolds the Trutanich Campaign for extracting headlines and phrases from recent stories and an editorial, objective civic observers should note that the spread of regional political myopia, is at an acute level, when not one mention of former Assemblyman Feuer's co-sponsorship of the AB-109 budget-busting, prison realignment debacle, is made in its reaffirming editorial. 
Maybe we can extrapolate from today's editorial musing, that most members of the Editorial Board have been more worry about "gun-rights and anti-immigrant zealots", when in reality, their focus should be place on fail Sacramento politicos who have dumped thousands of ready made felons back on the streets of neighborhoods beyond their elite neighborhoods viewpoints. But lets give the Trutanich Campaign credit for showcasing a former "fishwrap of record's" agenda hypocrisy. 
 In the LA Times own words , the Mike Feuer Campaign is .................

The truth must never get in the way of a friendly endorsement at the LA Times.

Hey Genius,

Are you going to report on the Saturday LA Times survey showing that Feuer is WHIPPING Trutanich by 11 points?

Or do you only want to post your fairy tails?

Can you also please repeat the accusation made by City Attorney Carmen Trutanich at his press conference on Thursday, that I am a 'Cyber Stalker,' a crime punishable as a felony under Penal Code Section 646.9.

I would like the record to be very clear as to what Trutanich said, because his accusation, apart from being utterly untrue, is also another example of the way he behaves like a thug; trying to bully anyone who does not drink his Koolaide.

You, as a blogger, should be equally disgusted by what Trutanich said. The idea that our exercise of our constitutionally protected right to free speech can be infringed, threatened, and impeded by the threat of criminal prosecution is abhorrent.

What Trutanich did with his statement is an abuse of his position as City Attorney, and you should be seriously reconsidering your support of his candidacy.

Of course, it is not the first time that Trutanich has threatened bloggers and reporters he does not like. Joseph Mailander aka 'Mulholland Terrace' was threatened with a defamation lawsuit by Jane Usher for calling into question Trutanich's hospitalization. Another victim of Trutanich's intimidation of the media was KABC reporter Michael Linder - why don't you ask him what happened when Trutanich did not approve of his comments?

The fact is that Trutanich is faced with the very real prospect of being the first incumbent City Attorney to fail to be reelected. As an incumbent, he should be way ahead of Mike Feuer in the polls, but his past behavior, his willingness to use false claims and threats to win at all costs in untenable in a City Attorney, and unacceptable in a civilized society.

So yes, the Times re-affirmed their endorsement, and Trutanich is tanking in the polls, both for very good reason. You may not like Mike Feuer, but he is not a liar and he is not a bully.

Los Angeles needs a City Attorney who is a leader not a liar, and a thinker not a thug.
