The claws come out as CD 14 City Council Candidates Nadine Diaz and Gloria Molina take swipes at the veracity, work ethic and nefarious behavior of Incumbent City Councilman Jose Huizar, in by far, the most contentious debate of the 2015 City Council Campaign.
The sharp-edged Swipes by CD 14 Challengers Nadine Diaz and Gloria Molina are having a telling affect on the self-noting Princeton Graduate.
** Blogger's Note:
Disclaimer ......, please pardon the bloggin pause due to another DWP Audit-related question (number three on the evening) ........, that out of the way (along with other "beyond CD 14" questioning), those in attendance last evening at the Pat Brown Institute/ League of Women Voters Co-chaired CD 14 City Council Debate at California State University Los Angeles (CSULA), were reacquainted again to what is the norm in campaign dialog, especially when the Incumbent has multiple issues based upon Tonto-like behavior, Huevon-like work ethics, mixed with Machismo-based values. In recent months as details, facts and settlement costs mounted, political observers were opining that the worst case campaign scenario for the reelection prospects of Incumbent City Councilman Jose Huizar, would be a strong campaign from a well-noted female challenger (or challengers). That worst case scenario became reality (in debate form) last evening as the embattled incumbent endured slicing swipes to his already-questionable issues with veracity, work ethics and values from both challengers Nadine Diaz (** who received the NOW Endorsement) and Gloria Molina
(and to a lesser extent, Mario Chavez). It was clear that despite the best efforts to buy distance, regarding his past transgressions, via elevated amounts of patronage to key voter blocks,
those character issues are only becoming more pronounce as we near the ten day mark to Election Day. Whoever gets the vast majority of the women vote in this race, is positioning themselves for the win in a likely May Runoff. Thus, last evening, both female candidates, especially Gloria Molina took swipes in slicing up Councilman Huizar's questionable attitudes and actions regarding women. By far, the most contentious exchange took place between the Councilman and Molina regarding the former Supervisor's pledge to cut her pay, which prompted Molina to call Huizar "Sexist" for his dismissive retort. But as we near Election Day, many voters may not be so dismissive in choosing to restore behavior and character to the Fourteenth District---Scott Johnson
