Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Election Day 2014
** Orale!! Mayor Garcetti picked Cesar Chavez Avenue, between Evergreen and St. Louis Street as one of LA's "Fifteen Great Streets". We are left to ponder whether this designation will raise the "taxes" that Street Vendors must pay for the privilege to sell Paletas, Tamales, and hot Cheetos along the newly designated thoroughfare?
** In a "Do As I Say, Don't Do As I Do Political Moment", City Attorney (and AB 109 Co-author) Mike Feuer, has double the number of Neighborhood Prosecutors. Thus undoing his joint efforts with former Failure Mayor Antonio Villar and most of the City Clowncil Central Committee, to enact political payback on now former City Attorney Carmen Trutanich.
** Downtown News Editor and reigning "Scribe of Wit" Jon Regardie, found gainful time to surf various websites of Clowncil Central Committee Members and what new tidbits of cyber facts did he unearth? An excerpt ...........
Felipe Fuentes’ Fowl Play: What does Seventh District rep Felipe Fuentes do for fun? If you guessed yachting or lawn bowling, you’re wrong.

I don’t know why this strikes me as fascinating, but it does, and I’m curious how many chickens Farmer Fuentes has, if he ever brings them to work, if he has a favorite chicken, if he first got a chicken or an egg, and if any of them are named Antonio Villaraigosa.
....... wondering if the Cocks and Hens within the Fuentes Coop, can "chicken-scratch legislation", on behalf of campaign-contributing Special Interests?
Your thoughts ..............
