A Mayor Sam Response to Email Legal Threats via LA-32 NC Board Member Keith Survillas
Our First Amendment is a wonderful thing but there are limits. I ask that you take that false and defamatory post down or I will pursue legal avenues. None of us have time for these games. I trust that the city will be involved if your post isn't removed by the end of the day today.
We would normally take the bloggin opportunity to grant the trained Human Resources Director (and aspiring Trump-like Republican Officeholder) an expansive response to his claims and legal threats cited in the emails (** BTW Board Member Survillas, you can link here to our posted response regarding a previous "Cease and Desist Request" from a LA-32 located entity ........, that also suffices as our official retort to your legal threats, wink, wink), but this being a Saturday, we offer these short, concise comments.
First Board Member Survillas, you DO have a constitutional right to confront a retired, Female Law Enforcement Officer (who is also a Widow of a LAPD Homicide Detective) and call her "An Embarrassment to Law Enforcement (which multiple witnesses heard you do)".
Second Board Member Survillas, you DO NOT have the right to make physical contact (as witness by multiple people and noted to Empower LA Staff Member Thomas Soong), under the California Penal Code for Battery, when verbally-accosting and denigrating a longtime LA-32 Stakeholder.
Third Board Member Survillas, we STRONGLY recommend that you retain Legal Counsel.

** BTW Board Member Survillas, we can state, FOR THE RECORD, that the person you accosted is moving forward in filing a FORMAL COMPLAINT.
