Mid-day Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Thursday
** Meanwhile the Calderon Machine is hitting back with allegations that the FBI Sting against Senator Calderon was initiated after the Montebello (CD 14 East) Politico would not cooperate in a Sting against State Senate Leader Darrell Steinberg and Kevin De Leon. Local political observers are musing verbally that this is a push back against Senator Steinberg for striping Senator Calderon of his committee assignments.
** Not to let a good political scandal go to waste, the Assemblyman Mike Gatto Astro-turf Burbank Blog, has attempted to link the likes of former La Canada Assemblyman, now State Senate Candidate Anthony Portatino, Bonnie Lowenthal and former City of LA City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo to contributions from the infamous Pacifica Hospital in Long Beach, which gave major money to Tom Calderon.
** Guess which "Dear Charro, Princeton Graduate" is one of four Latino Politicos profiled in Tony Castro's latest missive regarding their respective sex scandals?
