Evening Briefs on the Los Angeles Campaign Proceedings for Tuesday

As former Failure Mayor Antonio Villar acquiesce to Northern California Democrats maneuvering that position Attorney General Kamala Harris as the apparent Democratic Nominee to replace Senator Barbara Boxer, the City Terrace Native now eyes a 2018 Run for Governor. 
Will anyone care to support a Failure Mayor for Governor come 2018?
From former Villar "Designated Driver", turned "Political Strategist" Michael "MEAT" Trujillo on today's Antonio announcement ......., "So that plane has landed, will take a quick bathroom break and jump in another!" 
Meanwhile, "MEAT" has disembarked the DC-9 that was the "Villar for Senate Pipe Dream" and headed back to CD 14 for his "Bathroom Break", coordinating the "Community Support PAC for Huizar City Council 2015 (made up of mostly non-community Special Interest entities)" with fellow Political Stooges "Private Citizen/Campaign Consultant" John Shallman ......., and former CD 14 City Councilman Lauro "Tricky Nicky" Pacheco (** who's Mom is supporting Nadine Diaz).
Of interest (with a yawn for punctuation), is whether "MEAT" will wait around to 2018 to board the DC-3 that will symbolize the "ancient, has been politico", running for Governor? 
** LMAO!! Look who the LA Weekly outed from the shadows of the CD 4 City Council Campaign, none other than the self-crowning California Political Royalty (at partial cost to the taxpayer's) State Senate President Pro Tem "Kevin de Leon the First" Staffer, turned City Council Candidate Steve Veres.
   CD 4 City Council Candidate Steve Veres: "Believe ME!! I am nobody shadowy tool!"
BTW Steve, about that IE PAC "Safe Neighborhoods & Better Schools for YOU"? It seems that they have done something quite rare, that is leaving "Private Citizen/Volunteer Campaign Consultant" John Shallman with a campaign debt (usually its Shallman's client that have debt issues, be we digress), as Hillel Aron details.
On paper, the PAC for Steve Veres, using the grammatically dubious name of "Safe Neighborhood & Better Schools for Steve Veres for City Council 2015," is the fattest, having spent $85,000 so far, mostly on glossy mailers like this one.
But how could they possibly afford it? The PAC has only raised $35,000 – $25,000 from the United Food and Commercial Workers Union Local 770, and $10,000 from Cordoba Corporation, a construction management company.
The remaining $50,000 is essentially debt, owed by the Veres Super Pac to a political consultant, John Shallman.
Shallman insists that nothing untoward is going on—he claims the IE committee/PAC was hastily assembled, and the checks have come in slowly.
Now we have learned from Shallman something that voters needed to know weeks ago:
The big infusions of cash are pouring in from three big unions: the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, or IATSE, a union that represents many in the entertainment industry; the Teamsters union; and a plumbers unions (it's still unclear which locals are cutting the checks).

......., which makes Veres the Union Tool in CD 4.

Your thoughts ..............
Scott Johnson in CD 14
