HOT Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Monday

As the Mayor Sam Blog confirms the filing of multiple complaints against CD 14 City Councilman Jose Huizar, an Instagram Poll undertaken by the Moderator of the El Sereno Insider Facebook Page, shows an El Sereno Backlash against the continuing Reign of Team Huizar.
The results of the El Sereno Insider Facebook Page Instagram Poll.
** Blogger's Notes: For multiple reasons beyond the latest allegations of Workplace Misconduct by CD 14 City Councilman Jose Huizar, the prospects of #Richellary2020 succeeding in her quest to replace the occasionally-straying Officeholder, are taking a hit in the El Sereno Community. Unlike Downtown LA, Eagle Rock or Hermon, the multi-term Councilman, has not respected the El Sereno Community with a Q & A Townhall Meeting in recent years. Instead, the Councilman relies on controlled, choreographed appearances at the homes/businesses owned by supporting enablers ......., engendering a growing backlash.  
US Senate Candidate Kevin Alexander (de or of) Leon, getting notice of latest Northeast Democrats Endorsement Rejection?
** As supposed polling shows US Senate Candidate Kevin Alexander (de or of) Leon gaining on incumbent California Senior Senator Dianne Feinstein (and Republican John Cox narrowing Gavin Newsom's lead), the still Northeast LA-representing State Senator, was denied (again), the Endorsement of the Northeast LA Democratic Club, which voted to make "No Endorsement", as supporters of both candidates could not garner the votes necessary. 
A convicted Pot Trafficker with CD-7 City Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez. 
** For a First Term City Councilwomen, Monica Rodriguez'es Officeholder Account has been busy raising money to offset "Election Litigation Costs" with an estimated $20,000 owed Attorney Stephen Kaufman. The only question as Councilwoman takes money from the likes of a notorious Sunland-Tujunga Convicted Drug Trafficker, what form of "Litigation" is pending?-----Scott Johnson.

Mayor Sam Exclusive: A Model City's Ethics Going Up In Smoke?

A growing Residence Revolt in the City of Commerce against a proposed Ordinance that would allow the sale of Recreational Marijuana is disclosing troubling, "Pay to Play Dealings", involving City Council Members ........., and cronies of the infamous Calderon/Cedillo/Chacon Political Machine.
Commerce City Hall.
** Blogger's Notes: Since its Incorporation in 1960, the Industrial, Business-friendly City of Commerce, has prided itself as being the "Model City", in an ethically-challenged and environmentally-impacted landscape of Southeast LA County.

While neighboring cities such as Vernon, Bell, Maywood, Cudahy, South Gate, Montebello and Huntington Park have garnered the dubious Headlines in recent years, the home to the Commerce Casino and Citadel Outlet Complex, has not been immune to scandal, as exampled by former Councilman Robert Fierro's Conviction for lying to the FBI regarding Campaign Finances.

Yet, in the aftermath of a 2017 City Council Realignment that was supposed to give birth to stability (and ethical reform), Commerce residences are awakening to the reality that they are now Ground Zero in the fight against Southeast LA Political Corruption.

The super majority of Mayor Hugo Argumedo, along with Council Members John Soria, Ivan Altamirano and Councilwoman Oralia Robello have incurred the wrath of Commerce Stakeholders as they front for newly-hired City Administrator (and embattled Montebello School Board Member) Edgar Cisnero's Scheme to legalize (and control) the sale of Recreational Marijuana within the city.

As residents organize for Tuesday's Public Hearing on the Marijuana Ordinance, the Mayor Sam Blog has reviewed available Campaign Contribution Documentation (extrapolated upon below) and found troubling Conflict of Interest issues........, involving connections to the Calderon/Cedillo/Chacon Political Machine-----Scott Johnson.

City of Los Angeles CD-14 City Councilman observes as Wife Richelle Rios Huizar greets, then Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton.
** Blogger's Notes: In the last couple of months, the Mayor Sam Blog been made aware of the departure of numerous CD-14 Staff Members (mostly females), as the speculation regarding a very-possible Richelle Rios Huizar 2020 CD-14 City Council Campaign nears reality. The political aspirations of the loyal Wife of the "past occasional-straying Officeholder", is predicated on her Husband's Power of Status on the City Council (as noted in the recent Downtown News Editor Jon Regardie Missive) and most important ........., his workplace/personal conduct. On Monday, we received a Statement from an Ex. Staffer, that if true, has dire implications for the continuance of the "Team Huizar Brand" (and those other Former Staffers, who seek to politically-benefit on their silence).  For the record, the identity of the Ex. Staffer remains anonymous at their request .........., and we accord the Office of Councilman Huizar the respect to respond (redspotincd14@yahoo.com) ......... if they choose-----Scott Johnson. ** Afternoon Update: Richelle Rios Huizar announces her campaign.
