Hot Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Monday
From the Burbank Blog (July 21, 2015) ............., "Aryan, or Armenian, Supremacists?" Supporters for for Assembly candidate Ardashes Kassakhian and Senate candidate Anthony Portantino showed up en masse to prevail in the local Dem party delegate election redux which the party ordered after finding massive fraud by their supporters the first time. The two prevailed this time only after whipping up an ethnic furor with "my race first" tactics that have no place in our swirling melting pot of a community. Articles like this one called "By Any Means Necessary" are emblematic of the "us first always" rhetoric. We know we speak for most when we say that bad taste in our mouths appears to be 1950s cornbread from the deep south. What gives this white, privileged group the right to be so radically ethnocentric?
Just a thought, but if someone (or a certain ethnic group) was the target of ethnic cleansing in regards to exerting their right to vote, then in hindsight, a "Democrats United" response was the appropriate reaction?
** Will the "Political Soul Brothers" of the Los Angeles City Clowncil Central Committee, reunite on the (Exchange) Stage to help settle a "2015 Campaign Debt? Surprise, surprise, the just re-elected "Political Soul Brother" of City Clowncil Central Committee Strongman Herman "Mini Amin" Wesson, CD 14 Clowncilman Jose Huizar, is having money issues ......., again. From non-payment of Property Tax, to an alleged "Quitsale", the just re-elected Officeholder (BTW, who went to Princeton) just can't figure out how to (politically) live within his means (excluding the largess of the Special Interests). According to his most recent 460 Officeholder Account Report, Huizar is $54,000 in the hole, this due to the purchase of "Huizzy Goodies", given mostly to Senior Citizen Voters. Thus, as more campaign bills come due, it would not surprise us to see a "Political Soul Brothers" return engagement at The Exchange (with entry predicated on the appropriate contribution).
