Welcome to our First Edition of the 2015 Municipal Elections "Trolling for Dough Campaign Contributions Report" featuring our favors-enabling (for the right price), self-pimping duo of Herman "Mini Amin" Wesson and Jose "The Tonto Huevon" Huizar.
Raining Benjamins to Pay and Play.
SHOW US THE MONEY TIME!!
For those who still cling to Political Pollyanna- like tendencies regarding the role of money in our local elective discourse, then let me introduce you to our reigning "Pay to Play Duo" at 200 Spring Street ......., and they do not come cheap.
Judging from the most recent Campaign Contribution Reports via the City of Los Angeles Ethics Commission
, the Political Soul Brothers were the Top Two in reaping the monetary windfalls from a still-litigious 2012 Redistricting Process
Below, we offer our respective musings on each Council Districts "Trolling for Dough Fundraising Reports" as made public by the Ethic Commission
With no serious opposition for re-election, the only question here for Incumbent Paul Krekorian ($36,716)
is whether he wants to break past the six-figure mark in role-playing a supposed campaign. Of course, we can start a bloggin rumor that either Chris Essel, Frank Sheftel, Phil Jennerjahn, or all three, may initiate a Write-In Campaign to stimulate a campaign dialog.
Talk about a Campaign Stimulus Zone! With so many candidates seeking to replace the current City Clowncil Central Committee Commissar Historian Tom Labonge, the Call for the CD 4 Tote came in at $1,475,000, as the Special Interests seeked out their chosen ones in this contest. As of Monday, David Ryu ($310,959
), Carolyn Ramsey ($248,569
) and Steve Veres ($238,140
) are the top three in the money race, but in a crowded field as this, low cost foot power (mixed with an untimely bit of news), can overtake the money advantage in a election instant.
The tale of the numbers currently in the sole City Council Bastion of Sanity, is that reigning Clowncil Central Committee Strongman Herman "Mini Amin" Wesson has been busy pimping challenger Marqueece Harris-Dawson to the Special Interests to the tune of ($298,160
). But "Mini Amin" Wesson's crusade to avoid another Park-like political person from replacing him, met with defeat within his own political party, as the Los Angeles County Democratic Party, voted to endorse Bobbie Jean Anderson ($41,868
Surprise, surprise, the reigning Strongman of the City Clowncil Central Committee garnered a challenge for re-election when Korean American Coalition Executive Director Grace Yoo entered the campaign at the last minute. So far Yoo's total of ($12,698
) is a paltry fraction of "Mini Amin's" ($322,750
), but don't underestimate the Korean American Committee's desire for a seat within the Horseshoe and their anger at the injustice of the 2012 Redistrict Process.
The lone Spring Street RINO has the Englander Machine-generated Special Interest Money ($317,521)
but no opposition candidate to harass (allegedly).
Its a major UNDERSTATEMENT to say that the embattled CD 14 City Clowncilman Jose "The Tonto Huevon" Huizar, knows his way around a campaign contribution handout. With a 2015 Elections-leading ($817,025)
in contributions, expect many glossy fliers falsifying other's accomplishments in your mail and legions of paid precinct walkers to pound on your doors in the weeks ahead. But do not UNDERESTIMATE the chances of challenger Gloria Molina to raise the money
to highlight a better CD 14 of Tomorrow, unchained from the Special Interests owned, Princeton Graduate.
Your thoughts ..............
