HOT Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Monday
While the voting demographics of the 25th State Senate District favors the Democrats, its not a given that under the State of California's "Open Primary Rules", that both Portantino and Gatto make the top two in a Runoff Election, considering that a strong Republican Candidate (in the form of Antonovich), could coalesce the party's register voters into a formidable block, that takes out either Assemblyman Gatto or Portantino.
Thus, if the political planets align the right way (and monetary resources are allocated) the California Republican Party (and Antonovich) can pull the upset in 2016.
** Continuing on the topic of quick responses, the Los Angeles City Clowncil Central Committee was the recipient of same-day recognition for its 12-2 Vote to approve the "Mobility 2035 Plan" (which should also garner legal attention in the near future) at its Friday Meeting. That afternoon, KFI 640 AM Afternoon Drive Duo of John and Ken, wasted no time in bestowing its weekly's "Hacks in the Dumpster Award" on the twelve, yes-voting Clowncil Central Committee Members (click link to hear Podcast), with special attention given to CD 11 Clowncilman Mike Bonin ......., and the "Social Justice Champion" (who went to Princeton) CD 14 Clowncilman Jose "Increase Mobility for USC" Huizar.
** Anybody with a spare "Benjamin" can get a inside look of a Former Failure Mayor Antonio Villar's Hollywood Hills Bachelor Pad as the former City Terrace Native hosts a fundraiser for the "2016 Hillary Indicted Legal Fund" tonight. While the "Person of Interest" will not be in attendance, you may have the opportunity to enjoy a ride with a "certain blogging, designated driver (for the right price of course)".
