The 2015 Mayor Sam Political Ass Clown Awards
While a former CD 2/7 City Clowncil Central Committee Member CONtemplates a future without politics in home confinement, a Southeast Los Angeles Politico Family has many within the Los Angeles Political Machine, listening for a tune from a Federal Grand Jury and FBI Investigation which may see many of their political brethren seeking legal representation. The HOT RUMOR for 2015 is that a local, former elected law official, ma come out of retirement to help with prosecution of local corruption cases.
We bloggin fondly remember a time every Thursday when the latest Soulvine Column would post via the Online Edition of the LA Wave Newspaper. From week to week, Betty Pleasant's weekly WMDs (either being Wanton Missive of Distortion or Written Missive of Distinction) were bound to impale themselves on the subject of Pleasant's ire or gushing of praise. But with Pleasant's ceaseless attacks on LA County Board of Supervisor staffer and LAUSD District One Candidate Alex Johnson. The Publisher allegedly put the loss of potential ad revenue (via supposed threats from the Supervisor) paramount before Pleasant's Right to Expression. and the result was Betty's resignation from the Wave.
Long ago there was a local Progressive Assemblywoman Jackie Goldberg who chose a Housing Project Community Center Stage for one of her Swearing In Ceremonies. This year, her replacement as Assemblyman and now State Senator Kevin de Leon, spent thousands of Special Interest Dollars in having himself Coroneted as State Senate Pro Tem Kevin de Leon the First, before an invite-only group at the Walt Disney Concert Hall.
There will come a time for every member of the Los Angeles Political Machine, when your inability to remain in public office or getting elected to a position of power, will render you irrelevant, especially if you are a certain "Call Greuel". Sadly for Wendy, that time has come after her Third Place Finish in the 33rd Congressional Campaign. Despite the extreme mame makeover and dumping of debt-incurring "Private Citizen/ Campaign Consultant" John Shallman, for the trio of Sean, Ace and MEAT, the former favorite Call Greuel for the likes of Antonio, SEIU, PPL, UFLAC, the County Labor Federation ......, and of course IBEW's Boss D'Arcy Rizzo, clearly has seen her best of political opportunities.
As the March Elections for the odd-numbered LAUSD School Board Seats roll on, a potential BIG SCANDAL is ready to engulf the District Three proceedings. Former Michael "MEAT" Trujillo Campaign Client and current School Board Member Tamar Galatzan, has herself in a legal quagmire as her attempt to prosecute longtime LAUSD Activist George Buzzetti, is engendering a major pushback. Buzzetti recently released an independent review of the telephone recording that are the basis for Tamar's quest to silence the CORE California Civil Rights Group Member, which a VERY HIGH PROBABILITY that its not Buzzetti's voice on the messages. Can you say wrongful prosecution? Can you say iPAD Cover Up? There is convincing reasons to think so.
For those who hold out a forlorn hope of cleaning up corrupting within Ciudad de Los Angeles, a good place to start is at your neighborhood "Connected Non-Profit". Residences within the CD 1 Community of Cypress Park, have taken the extra step of trying to keep one out but with no thanks to their Clowncilman Gil "Broken Deal Cedillo", they are fighting one of the more infamous 501-C3s, Echo Park's El Centro del Pueblo. Despite protests and calls for a meeting, Clowncilman Cedillo is forcing the Southeast LA County Corruption-connected entity upon the community, while its Executive Director Sandra Figueroa-Villa attempts to buy her way into new turf.
As a disclaimer from the Ass Clown Awards Committee, the growing list of broken promises, lies, betrayals and simply, contempt for his legal constituents, is grounds for the serious consideration of a weekly or monthly "Broken Deal Cedillo Ass Clown Award". From his blatant acts of given public money to a Convicted Felon, Larry "Nativo" Lopez, to his disregard for the Friends of the Southwest Museum Organization, in favor of the "Pay to Play El Plan" of Autry-associated Gabriel Buelna, Broken Deal Cedillo is ensuring himself of a Re-election Challenge come 2017.
There is no need to grope through the lesser details on the character and political failings of a former Two Term RINO Politico known here as simply "The Kennedy Republican (a republican who's political manhood has been castrated by his Kennedy Family Spouse, making him a California RINO)". But the photo above tells you all you need to know about how the Political Elites will take care of each other, even at the expense of something called Justice. Thus, the photo below of a loving Husband and Wife, Kathy and Fred Santos, forever in grief over the violent lost of their son Luis, should serve as a reminder why "The Kennedy Republican" is not fit to hold Public Office ever again.
