The "Valley Moldy Green Sheet of Record's" (aka Daily News) Rick Orlov gives us the Tipoff on the meta-physical happenings in CD 14.
Were ex CD 14 staffers haunting the temporary Boyle Heights Field Office from the Political Afterlife?
As members of the City Clowncil Central Committee took advantage of another recess by jetting off to the far reaches of the world (for example, CD 2 City Councilman Paul Krekorian visiting the Motherland of Armenia), what were CD 14 staffers in Boyle Heights doing? Calling GHOSTBUSTERS! Or a LAPD officer who moonlights investigating meta-physical incidents as Orlov notes (** with our comments in bold).
For the staff of Councilman Jose Huizar, when strange things occurred in a temporary field office (like constituent services?), they called in resident LAPD ghost expert Miguel Lopez to look into the noises and incidents of bells ringing (unanswered phones calls do make noise) and fire alarms going off, according to the Daily Beast. (** this article is a scream but I digress).
Lopez visited the site and “cleansed” ( of the angry spirits of irate constituents?) it, and no further problems were reported (maybe the spirits were bought off with turkey and toy vouchers with picture of Huizzy?). Huizar spokesman Rick Coca said he went to the site while Lopez was there and didn’t see or hear anything (yet we see ghostly "Coca Puffs" all the time).
Even so, the staff was moved to offices in the new Boyle Heights City Hall.
And, Coca said, “there have been no ghost sightings (then where is the Princeton Graduate?) at City Hall, though a visit from the ghost of Tom Bradley is always welcome (sponsored by Sumitomo Bank).”
and a final, political cleansing may come in 2015.
** Leave it to the "LA Weekly of Record" to crash the Political Honeymoon of new Mayor Eric Garcetti with this missive on the "Top Five Worst Appointments"
of former Mayor Tony Villar's replacement.
