Kevin James Made Me Cry. Or Did He Make Me Sick?

Factotum and Factotumer
It's no secret that this blog was a major supporter of Kevin James when he was running for Mayor in 2013. Kevin, after intense study, observation, traveling around the city and spending hours and hours on the air examining city issues and learning how incredibly corrupt, broken and in distress this City is in.

We all know what happened - James performed well in the Mayoral primary but did not make the runoff. He pivoted to support Eric Garcetti over Wendy Greuel in the general election and was summarily issued the role of President of the Board of Public Works, the highest paid appointed position in city government.

During the campaign, James railed against waste, fraud and abuse. He decried the leadership of the City, including Garcetti. He spoke out against things like a sales tax to fix roads and sidewalks.

Well, I guess James is now one of them. The former Mayoral candidate turned Garcetti factotum is supporting a major sales tax to fund these repair projects.

Talk about being clowned.

Well, never again. Let's just say Kevin might as well as register as a Democrat, and jump in with the tax, spend, waste and steal crowd because that's the only place he will have a home. Community leaders and citizens who counted on him to be the one to hopefully TRY to turn things around have been severely let down. It's almost as if the Kevin James we stayed up into the wee hours of the night listening to, whose studio I traveled to myself at 11pm on a school night to discuss issues and who we supported to make a difference doesn't exist anymore. He's been replaced with a Garcetti issued doppelganger who LOOKS like Kevin but does not sound like him.

But then again, maybe all those years of late night radio was only entertainment and he didn't mean any of it.

why are you so surprised? don't you remember when he yelled and screamed about the Board of Public Works being nothing but a political favor for donors and friends of the mayor? the minute he accepted that position he became everything he railed against as a "conservative".
