Strange Blog About Assemblyman Mike Gatto




I saw this blog back when we had some kerfuffles with Assemblyman Mike Gatto, one of the strangest set of battles we ever had with an elected official as noted by several other publications at the time, but I did not realize that years later, the blog continues.

"Mike Gatto is a Sweet Dude" is a blog that celebrates the victories of Assemblyman Mike Gatto but also frequently posts a bizarre set of stories alluding to the Assemblyman's generous "manhood" as well as spewing all kinds of hatred and trash about anyone that is viewed as an opponent of Mike Gatto.

While we've been a target of the blog in the past, their more recent attacks have been directed at Ron Kaye, the former editor of the LA Daily News. Kaye has, in several local publications, been a critic of some of Gatto's policies, leading the Gatto blog to make crude sexual allegations against Kaye.



The blog, run by two individuals who claim to be named Jarvis Mitchell and Daulton Gatto, also refers to the Assemblyman as Mike "Testosterone" Gatto and has posted alleged photos of Gatto shirtless.

Are there any similar blogs dedicated to local elected officials or is this some sort of odd outlier?

Great article! Considering your sordid past with Mike Gatto, I was expecting more of a hit piece. But this was fair and balanced. Well done, Higby.

Two minor points:

We didn't post the Mike Gatto Shirtless pic! We still haven't even found the whole thing yet. I just posted the thumbnail that came up when you Google "Mike Gatto."

Also, when you type Daulton's name, for journalistic reasons, you need to include the disclaimer that he is of no relation to Mike Gatto.

Dear Mike:

I've written an open letter to you, hoping to come to some sort of mutual understanding as to the sweetness of Mike Gatto.

If this goes well, maybe we could interview you in the future.

Thanks!

Thanks, but no thanks, Jarvis. I'm semi-retired and not really interested in the Gatto or other worlds.

I might consider it though if you guys do a story about what Matt Dabbaneh might have done in Brian Maischien's office that lead to the rib comment though.

And if Daulton stops trying to light his farts on fire.

Wonder if Daulton and Jarvis "rib each other" in private?

Mike:
thanks for the friendly reply. we would be honored to write a piece speculating as to what caused the broken rib. i think we all know the answer to that -- mike's rock-hard cock. so is it a deal then?

Redspot:
fuck your homophobic, sophomoric insults in the ass. if i was gay, i would fuck the living shit out of daulton because he is a sweet dude. you, on the other hand, would be denied the purity of my essence.
