A Random Street Death Becomes Vivid And Real

By Daniel Guss
@TheGussReport - However many people lose their lives on the streets of Los Angeles on any given day, it is easy to see them as statistics, perhaps as a coping mechanism.
Numbers are cold and one-dimensional, at least until you meet the family and friends mourning their passing.  Then their death can quickly go from random and gray to vivid and real.
This is the story of one of those people, and his name was David Isaac Soto-Toral.

Shade & Fraud - Why Eric Garcetti Should Consider Other Career Options

By Daniel Guss

@TheGussReport - Former Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti won't be going to India as U.S. Ambassador any time soon.

President Joe Biden's recent re-re-nomination of him just a few weeks ago hasn't been withdrawn, but his White House - which keeps saying how important it is to have an ambassador in India - has yet to re-re-submit Garcetti's paperwork even though the second half of his term is well underway.

As of this morning, the U.S. Senate's Executive Calendar has a bunch of nominations, but none with the name Garcetti  on it.  
There are a few reasons why.

Another Day, Another Death. But Only Platitudes From Nithya Raman

By Daniel Guss

@TheGussReport - Chaos and death keep showing-up in Sherman Oaks, almost as frequently as the sunrise, while LA City Councilmember Nithya Raman keeps dodging this column's direct questions about a recent spike in deaths of homeless people and violent attacks by some of them upon the rest of her local constituency.

Now, yet another homeless person has died...

...while another yielding a knife was arrested after making death threats and climbing the roof of a local gas station, causing a major response from the LAPD and LAFD.

Because it's just about housing...right?

Raman's media flack has complained that instead of answering our direct questions, The Guss Report and Mayor Sam should quietly accept their prepared, gratuitous statement that speciously sidesteps accountability like so many Brooklyn trolley dodgers back in the day.

That approach may work in mainstream media circles, but not here, because we won't waste your time regurgitating press releases in lieu of direct questions and answers.

EXCLUSIVE: Top Bass Candidate For LAFD Chief Retires Amid Sexual Harassment Investigation

By Daniel Guss

@TheGussReport - Los Angeles Fire Department Chief Deputy Armando Hogan has abruptly retired from the agency during an ongoing investigation into sexual harassment allegations that keep plaguing the LAFD.

2021 Firefighter of the Year, Armando Hogan Source: Los Angeles Firemen’s Relief Association

Hogan, who newly elected mayor Karen Bass had considered for the LAFD Chief's job, was both a donor and fundraiser for her.

Well-placed City Hall sources say that footage from several of City Hall's thousands of security cameras, may have led to incriminating evidence of the allegations against Hogan by a high profile and married LAFD civilian.

Jose Huizar - I'll be talking about his federal plea deal today at 2pm on 790-KABC

@TheGussReport - Well, it's time for disgraced former LA City Councilmember Jose Huizar to face the music in federal court, and boy did the hard-working feds have an orchestra prepared, as he formally entered his guilty plea this morning.

Today at 2pm on 790-KABC, I'll dig into the details of his racketeering and tax evasion dirty deeds and what it is likely going to cost Huizar when he is eventually sentenced.

Nithya Raman Shrugged Before Dead Bodies Piled Up

By Daniel Guss

@TheGussReport - Los Angeles City Councilmember Nithya Raman spent the first few years of her time in City Hall ignoring warnings about violent attacks on her constituents by homeless addicts, especially in a one-block area of Sherman Oaks.   I wrote about that just the other day, also warning Raman of the dangers that some of the homeless also posed to themselves.

As usual, the lawmaker whose predecessor, David Ryu, was ousted after just one term in office, just shrugged.

Within a week, not one, not two, but three homeless people from this one block in the San Fernando Valley died on the streets of what used to be a nicer-than-average neighborhood.

Does 99% Of LA Have Any Rights Remaining? (Asking For 4 Million Friends)

By Daniel Guss

@TheGussReport - Hello, happy new year and welcome back.

I found myself unexpectedly redirecting traffic in the middle of Ventura Boulevard last week after slamming my brakes to avoid driving over a deeply disturbed young man whose life had become so unraveled that he was rolling on the pavement and speaking incoherently in the middle of the bustling intersection.

Beyond risking his own safety, being so low to the ground, he also risked the safety of everyone else in the area, such as another driver who did not see him when quickly changing lanes to avoid the jam he had caused...once again.

I write "once again" because the man's situation became clearer when the first LAPD patrol car and LAFD ambulance rolled up.

Introducing ................, "Total Recall Outtakes from CD-14"

As we end the first week of 2023, the Mayor Sam Blog commences "Total Recall Outtakes from CD-14", dedicated to providing objective, factually-based missives on the Grass Roots endeavor to remove embattled CD-14 City Councilman Kevin Alexander (of or de) Leon from Office.
The Official Billboard of Shame in CD-14 Political Folklore.
** Blogger's Notes: SPECIAL EVENING UPDATE!! This weekend's signature gathering has been postpone. More information will be forthcoming---S.J. With no apologies to the hate mongers within the local Political Machine (and their stenographer enablers in the Fishwrap Legacy Media), we commence our new bloggin feature ......, "Total Recall Outtakes from CD-14". As the disgrace, embattled CD-14 City Councilman Kevin Alexander (of or de) Leon seeks out those who morals can be bought with free turkeys, toys or funding from his controlled Discretionary Funds (as superbly reported upon by longtime friend Tony Butka and Karl Schumacher via the Recall Kevin Deleon Facebook Page), Recall Organizers will be out in CD-14 tomorrow seeking signatures from those who will hopefully condemn Backroom Racism ........, via the Power of Signature. As the signature gathering commences (tomorrow's locations posted below), rest assure that a "extreme fringe element (DSA, BLM and those in the hypocritical Establishment)", will hold nothing back in seeking to obstruct this exercise in Grass Roots empowerment ........ and moral accountability. In the days ahead, the Mayor Sam Blog will endeavor to keyboard relevant content regarding the political conduct (past and present) of still Councilman (of or de) Leon, and provide timely missives on current events. The Mayor Sam Blog would also like to extend an invitation to those who would like to offer their own commentary (Pro or Con), in the spirit of fostering a civil dialog, you can contact me at outwardmsj66@yahoo.com. ** We should note that previous CD-14 City Council Candidate Raquel Zamora had stated to the Boyle Heights Beat that she would be establishing a "Recall Hub" in Boyle Heights at her Family Business, we invite her to provide us updated details----Scott Johnson, BASED in CD-14.    
Texting K.A. (of or de) Leon!! The gathering of signatures continues this weekend.
Will the needed amount of CD-14 Voters take a stand against Racism by signing the Recall Petition to remove the Disgrace Politico born as Kevin Alexander Leon from Office??

A Brief Final 2022 Bloggin Message ..........

As a busy 2022 nears its appointed date with history, a certain MIA Blogger has a message regarding pending 2023 bloggin coverage of the moral political reckoning descending on Council District 14 and its disgraced Officeholder ........., Kevin Alexander (of or de) Leon
Message to Kevin Alexander (of or de) Leon: He's Back!!
** Blogger's Notes: Hola and pending New Year's Greetings from inside the Councilmatic Ground Zero for Non-Accountable Racism in Ciudad de Los Angeles. On a personal note, its been way too long since this Blogger's last missive but dealing with life priorities (in securing a better tomorrow), took paramount priority. That stated, I am forever grateful to Daniel Guss for maintaining postings. Daniel has brought a broader recognition to this website and most important, given witness to his singular insight on the dysfunctional state of affairs at 200 N. Spring Street. 
Looking ahead to 2023, longtime cyber observers of Mayor Sam will take solace in knowing that this blogger will place paramount, the coming Moral Political Reckoning in CD-14. Embattled, obstinate City Councilman Kevin Alexander (of or de) Leon has joined the likes of Richard Alatorre, Antonio Villar and the "Princeton Graduate (aka. Indicted Politico Jose Huizar)", in CD-14's Hall of Shame which he has no feel for.
Normally in an ideal, moral-rooted political entity, the BFF of former Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez, would have been forced to resign long ago, but this is the CD-14 that re-elected Jose Huizar multiple times , which likely had to do with the ......, gifting of moral-corrupting patronage. 
Indeed, in recent weeks since the release of the infamous audio tape, still Officeholder KA Leon, has resorted to what his infamous predecessors have done when seeking to counter negative reports of nefarious conduct, by dispensing with self-serving discretion, turkeys, meals for seniors, Christmas Toys, and with timely help from overly-aggressive BLM/DSA Activists (at Lincoln Park) ........, its working to his benefit.
In the aftermath of the Lincoln Park Incident, what should had been a formality in garnering the needed signatures to Recall Officeholder Leon, is now a 50/50 proposition, not helped by those from outside of the Council District, who's vanity is only impeding a CD-14 Electorate which must decide for itself whether (and how), to cleanse the latest racist stain on its political soul-----Scott Johnson BASED in CD-14

Bass and Garcetti are Identical Cousins on LA's Housing and Homeless Efforts

By Daniel Guss

@TheGussReport - It's like 1963 all over again!

With LA Mayor Eric Garcetti finally out of City Hall for the first time since 2001, and his newly minted successor Karen Bass in control, and a homelessness emergency declared with a lot of fanfare, it seems that the big surprise is that Bass's homeless plan is essentially the same as Garcetti's.

So they're cousins! 

Identical cousins, all the way!

They laugh alike, they talk alike.

At times they even walk alike.

What a crazy pair!

Why City Hall Paid This Journalist's $10,528 Legal Tab

By Daniel Guss

@TheGussReport - It is getting to be an LA tradition.

The LAPD and LA City Attorney Mike Feuer cut this journalist's team yet another five-figure settlement after exposing dubious, corrupt or inept City Hall behavior that it prefers wouldn't surface.

In this instance, the LAPD refused to turn over a few public records from its Computer Assisted Dispatch (CAD) to see what the hubbub is regarding an alleged "domestic incident" at the residence of one Eric Garcetti, the Mayor of Los Angeles, aka "Little Ricky," as the late, great City Hall gadfly John Walsh used to call him.

Oh, you better believe that there's a lot more to this story, because why would the LAPD want to pay this columnist's legal tab if absolutely nothing went down at La Casa de Garcetti?

It isn't the last you'll hear about this situation.

And apparently, it won't be the last check the big wigs cut.  It certainly isn't the first.

LA's Chance to Punch Back: Kenneth Mejia for LA City Controller

By Daniel Guss
@TheGussReport - This is your chance, Los Angeles.   
If you're fed up with what you see, experience and expect from LA City Hall, now is your chance to punch-back good and hard, or forever stop complaining about it.
In my new Substack column, I outline the roots of corruption that demand LA's next City Controller be as independent from City Hall as possible.  The only candidate who fits that bill is CPA Kenneth Mejia.
It is a rare instance where this column concurs with the LA Times Editorial Board.

On top of that good news, Mejia is also the only candidate with actual auditing experience and published plans for using data to improve the City.  In fact, he even volunteers at the deeply troubled LA Animal Services.

Odd Couple: Why Fed-Up LA Needs Mayor Rick Caruso and Controller Kenneth Mejia

By Daniel Guss
@TheGussReport - Los Angeles City Council is more responsible than any other government for the hideous conditions on the ground which have intensely bled into surrounding communities.  
If it has accomplished anything good of late, or even in recent years, shoot me a note; I am not aware of a single praiseworthy and thorough endeavor. Not-a-one.
At any rate, lying, neurotic Mayor Eric Garcetti, aka Mayor Yoga Pants, will soon be gone after more than 21 disastrous years in LA City Hall.

For this and many other reasons, fixing LA starts by flanking it with grown-ups from somewhere other than the government to serve as a check and balance system to its immense failures, corruption, waste and its once again exposed deeply rooted racism.
My suggestion?
For starters, cast votes next week for Mayor Rick Caruso and Controller Kenneth Mejia, both of whom come from somewhere other than government.  While they may at first seem like polar opposites, in fact, they are the best available starter kit that a fed-up LA needs most.

City Hall's Past Abuses, Censorship, Lack Of Leadership Are Centerstage During Current Crisis

By Daniel Guss

@TheGussReport - Anyone who has ever been censored by an abusive politician at LA City Hall, or anywhere else really, is loving its City Council meetings these days.

Suddenly, the same politicians who dropped the ball in the immediate moments after the Nury Martinez - Gil Cedillo - Kevin de Leon racism scandal that erupted two weeks ago have suddenly been rendered impotent by boisterous groups, including The People's City Council.

Of course, there's more to the story than just that.

Notes From Cancerous And Chaotic LA City Hall

By Daniel Guss

@TheGussReport - You asked, so I explored.

Where is Nury Martinez's city-issued car?

According to the General Services Department, one day after resigning in disgrace earlier this month, LA City Council President Nury Martinez handed over the keys to her city-issued car, a 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In, Modern Steel color, purchased for her for $41,551.30, including tax.

The taxpayers also covered her insurance, maintenance and gas up until then.

City Hall Censoring Sexual Harassment Reporting on High-Ranking LAFD Karen Bass Fundraiser

By Daniel Guss

@TheGussReport - Well that didn't last long.

Despite syrupy promises of transparency and integrity by newly-minted interim City Council President Paul Krekorian in the wake of an ongoing City Hall racism scandal and stalemate with the two remaining Councilmembers who refuse to resign, ongoing efforts to relentlessly censor and retaliate against this column are in full bloom.

It's amazing what good inside sources and three recent appearances on "The John and Ken Show" on KFI AM 640 will do to stoke City Hall paranoia as it loses its grip on its secrecy habits just a few weeks ahead of a general election.

Angry Mob 3, Racist LA City Council 0

By Daniel Guss - It looks like the geniuses at LA City Council are in a pickle.

With Nury Martinez finally realizing that she had to resign in disgrace late yesterday, Jamba Juice Mitch O'Farrell, the president pro tem, is running the show, except that his dearth of leadership is now front and center.

As I predicted on Monday, "there is precisely zero percent chance that even a single City Council meeting can move forward with so many voices calling for Martinez, Cedillo, de Leon and Herrera to resign."

Nury Martinez Embraces Racist 'Three-Fifths Compromise' Infecting LA City Hall

Her pals, Councilmembers Gil Cedillo and Kevin de Leon, along with Los Angeles County Federal of Labor President Ron Herrera apparently bought e-tickets for that racist ride.

The first time you ride a bike on your own.

How about your first kiss?

For some LA political observers, perhaps it was when the FBI slapped the cuffs on Mitch Englander, not just because the disgraced former City Councilmember wound up in federal prison, but also because he relished punching down and censoring people with legitimate concerns and pleas for help.

Koretz's Corruption Continues - How Best Friends Keeps Ripping Off LA; Desperate Lawmaker's Latest Ploy

By Daniel Guss

@TheGussReport on Twitter

This column has for years reported that uber-wealthy Best Friends Animal Society continually rips off the people of Los Angeles with City Hall's blessing despite consistently raking in more than $50 million in annual revenue.

The media, mayors, controllers, commissioners and councilmembers, especially the embattled Paul Koretz, look the other way while homeless and lost animals at Los Angeles Animal Services, LAAS, suffer.

Koretz, responding to an media inquiry from this column last week, wrote, "I haven't seen your evidence (about another contractual breach by Best Friends).  I would find that interesting."

But Koretz has gone silent since seeing that evidence.

Passing Gascón: LA Fails To Recall District Attorney Who Is As Leftist As He Promised

By Daniel Guss

@TheGussReport - Los Angeles wanted a far-left approach to criminal justice reform and now it has it for keeps.

Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder Dean Logan, whose firing this column called for in 2018, today rejected the latest effort to recall District Attorney George Gascón because organizers allegedly did not provide enough signatures to make the ballot.

It's as simple as that.

While former L.A. District Attorney Steve Cooley is pledging to bring Logan to court for allegedly failing to follow updated signature rejection guidelines, don't invest your time, heart or money in that effort.  Logan should never have been given that power in the first place because we already knew controversy had followed him to L.A. from his earlier job in Washington State and throughout his tenure in L.A.

That stated, we can feel the pain of CD-10 Constituents as they have been subjective to blatant disregard for ethical representation, thanks to the legally challenged decree of City Clowncil President Nury Martinez, that replaced Indicted CD-10 City Councilman Mark Ridley-Thomas with ..........., Herman "Mini Amin" Wesson.

Fourth Of July Briefs on the Los Angeles (and Beyond) Political Machine for Monday

Its Official (well almost)!! The Career Politico One Bill Gil will become out-going CD-1 City Clowncilman Done Deal Cedillo, as he concedes to Democratic Socialist Challenger Eunisses "Comrade Boo Boo" Hernandez.  
Career Politico Gil Cedillo's CD-1 Demise is a Done Deal.
** Blogger's Notes: With no apologies to the incoming Los Angeles City Hall "Red-coated Comrades (ie. Democratic Socialists)", we proudly wish everyone a blessed Fourth of July in the early afternoon quiet before the pending deluge of Illegal Fireworks. Later this evening, the law-abiding citizens of South Pasadena and the Rose City, will have the opportunity to look down upon CD-1 as it celebrates (via volleys of Illegal Fireworks), its pending liberation from the reign of defeated CD-1 City Clowncilman Gil "Broken Deal Cedillo". The collectivist victory over Cedillo became a Done Deal, when the Clowncilman Incumbent keyboarded his Concession Statement ......, and pending CD-1 Councilperson "Comrade Boo Boo" declared herself the victor. BTW, those in CD-1 who wish to complain about tonight's pending Illegal Fireworks Deluge, shouldn't expect your in-coming People's Central Committee Commissar, to be receptive regarding working with LAPD ......, on most Public Safety issues.   
The Recall Signature Verdict is not looking good for LA DA George Soros-Gascon.
Its our bloggin sincere hope that in the days ahead, we can gladly keyboard that Los Angeles County will be freed from the criminal-supporting legal tyranny of District Attorney George Soros-Gascon. The Recall Gascon Campaign recently announced that they had very-nearly garnered the required number of signatures to place the Recall of DA Soros-Gascon on the ballot. As a side note, the Mayor Sam Blog would like to commend the Tunnel to Towers Foundation, for its donation to cover the home mortgages of slain El Monte Police Officers Corporal Michael Paredes and Officer Joseph Santana ........, who were killed due to the criminals-first policies of DA Soros-Gascon. 
Congratulations Indeed (for the Prosecution)!! 
We didn't forget you Huizzy!! As the former Princeton Graduate, turned Indicted Ex. CD-14 City Councilman Jose Huizar awaits his pending 2023 Corruption Trial (locally from what we recently heard), the first of a trifecta of corruption trials connected to his nefarious conduct, was adjudicated in a Downtown LA Courtroom and resulted in the Conviction of Developer David Lee for bribing Huizzy with $500,000 in cash. In our years of covering the former Princeton Graduate within CD-14, its no secret that he had a fondness for women, money and gambling, which leaves us to ask him if he would bet that the next two trials of the trifecta ........., have the same guilty outcome?? More later-----Scott Johnson in CD-14.

In a Mayor Sam Special Report, we are on the bloggin "CD-1 Clowncilman Gil Done Deal Cedillo Political Death Watch" as the formerly One Bill State Assemblyman, turned a Broken Deal City Councilman, is most likely to endure a crushing defeat for re-election to Democratic Socialist Challenger Eunisses "Comrade Boo Boo" Hernandez.
The 2022 CD-1 City Council Election Vote Tally as of Friday, June 17.
Eunisses "Comrade Boo Boo" Hernandez 15,395 Votes, 53.51% 
City Councilman Gil "Done Deal Cedillo" 13,376, 46.49%
** Blogger's Notes: With the remaining harvesting of ballots from the June 7, 2022 Primary Elections almost completed, the Mayor Sam Blog has officially commenced ........, "The CD-1 Clowncilman Gil Done Deal Cedillo Political Death Watch"!! With no apologies to the formerly One Bill State Assemblyman, who became bloggin known as "Broken Deal Cedillo (for his numerous CD-1 betrayals of trust), is most likely to endure a major defeat at the collectivist hands of Democratic Socialist Eunisses "Comrade Boo Boo" Hernandez. Since Election Day, each update from the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder has Hernandez growing her lead. The pending CD-1 Victory by Hermandez is just a part of a "2022 Municipal Red (for Socialist) Wave" that has the likes of CD-13 City Councilman Mitch "Farewell (in November?)" O'Farrell and LAUSD District Two School Board Candidate Maria Brenes, facing pending Runoff Defeats to Leftist Candidates (Hugo Soto-Martinez and Rocio Rivas respectively). In addition, the likes of City Controller Candidate Kenneth Mejia and Cuba-loving Mayoral Candidate Karen Bass are the pronounced Leftist choice for city-wide office, that if successful, would push Los Angeles into the policy direction of failed San Francisco ............, with adverse ramifications for a city in crisis----Scott Johnson in CD-14.   
Is the pending CD-1 victory of Eunisses "Comrade Boo Boo" Hernandez, a validation of Socialist Policies ........, or repudiation of a Backroom Deal Politico?
Will pending CD-1 City Councilperson Eunisses "Comrade Boo Boo" Hernandez, replace the "Done Deal Cedillo Jazz Festival" ........, with a "People's Fashion Show" as exampled by this great Wendy's Commercial from the 1980s?

Morning Notes on the Post-Election Scorecard for Monday

In the aftermath of absentee CD-14 City Councilman Kevin Alexander (of or de) Leon's dismal (but not unexpected) placement in last Tuesday's Mayoral Primary, speculation is (and has been) rampant that the BFF of former Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez, is eyeing another vanity bid for State-wide Office. 
Absentee CD-14 City Councilman K.A. (of or de) Leon incredulous that someone would dare expose his ceaseless ambitions for State-wide Office (as noted via his 2026 Lt. Governor Campaign Documentation).
** Blogger's Notes: On this Monday after last Tuesday's 2022 California Primary, the final harvesting of votes is still a couple of weeks away from completion. That stated, its never too early to muse on the winners and losers at the Harvest Ballot Boxes, especially if one of the Vain Losers is newly-bestowed ......, "7% (of or de) Leon". As we note below, the pledge-dismissive CD-14 Officeholder suffered a body blow to his narcissist-rooted vanity, via his dismal, single-digit tally of votes (7.61% equating to 29,268 votes). The CD-14 ramifications of "7% (of or de) Leon's" mayoral ambitions gone ......., puff, means that the North by Eastside Council District's constituents will supposedly have full-time representation once again ........, but for how long?

Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles (and Beyond) Political Machine for Election Eve Monday

On the eve of Tuesday's 2022 Los Angeles Municipal Elections, it's almost a certainty that Mayoral Candidates Developer Rick Caruso and Congresswoman Karen Bass will commence on Wednesday, a five-month Runoff Battle that will have a lasting impact on the future of a city in physical, moral and ethical distress. 
With both Developer Rick Caruso (at Downtown LA's Grand Central Market) and Congresswoman Karen Bass (at Boyle Height's Mariachi Plaza) making recent campaign appearances in Council District 14, a growing disgruntled CD-14 Electorate, may play a major role in who replaces "Failure Mayor 2.0 Eric Garcetti", come November. 
** Blogger's Notes: Tick, tick, tick .........., we are on bloggin Election Watch as Tuesday culminates another cycle of Ballot Harvesting by those seeking gainful employment, with an office at 200 N. Spring Street. Tuesday's Municipal Elections sub-plots are numerous, mostly centered on Grass-Roots Progressives (in reality Leftist Socialists), seeking to usurp Establishment Progressives (with the Editorial help of the China Watch El Segundo Times), in contested City Council Elections and LAUSD Board of Education Contests city-wide. In the election for Mayor, City Attorney and City Controller, it's almost a certainty that each contest will be decided in November. That stated here are some of the Election Day sub-plots that will have our bloggin interest.

Mayor Sam Exclusive: "The Oz Behind the Curtain of Fake News ........, (financed in part, with $143,676.92 from the City of Commerce General Fund)".

In a Mayor Sam Exclusive, we disclose the alleged, "City of Commerce-financed $143,676.92 Reasons", for infamous Los Cerritos Community News Propagandist Brian Hews, to print questionable allegations on Model City Public Officials (and family members), opposed to those allegedly financing his 21st Century Version of "Yellow Journalism (for hire?)".
Los Cerritos Community News Owner Brian Hews, can laugh regarding how the City of Commerce has help financed his brand of "Yellow Journalism (locally bestowed as the Los Chacon Fake News)".
** Blogger's Notes: With less than 48 hours remaining for the 2022 Commerce Municipal Elections, the Mayor Sam Blog has received documentation (via a California Public Records Act Request), which details $143,676.92 in General Fund Expenditures (from January 1, 2019 to May 23, 2022 for printing Legal Notices), made to the Los Cerritos Community News (part of the Hews Media Group). These payments raise serious ethical (and Election Law) questions, considering its infamous Editor/ Publisher Brian Hews recent, insipid, printed attacks on Incumbent Commerce City Council Member Leo Mendoza. In recent days, Hews has taken interest in our disclosure of his past Commerce payments and previous controversial journalistic proclivities, which prompted this response on Facebook.

Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles (and Beyond) Political Machine for Tuesday

With Election Day one week away, embattled CD-1 City Councilman Gil "Broken Deal Cedillo's" Campaign Billboard (touting Leftist US Senator Bernie Sanders Endorsement), prompts a Bloggin Flashback on an inconvenient truth regarding a "Backroom Deal Cedillo Meeting" with a noted, President Trump Fundraiser .........., on the day before the California Democratic Primary in 2016.  
Is CD-1 City Councilman Gil "Bernie Endorsed Me" Cedillo the same "Backroom Deal Cedillo" who had a meeting with Developer (and Trump Supporter) Geoff Palmer??
** Blogger's Notes: No Los Angeles Municipal Election would be complete without "Big Billboard" shilling for the re-election of City Council Incumbents .........., especially CD-1 Officeholder Gil "Broken Deal Cedillo". With the CD-1 Officeholder facing a fierce Grass Roots Challenge from Leftist Progressive Candidate Eunisses Hernandez , the formerly Career Politico "One Bill Gil (now known locally as Broken Deal Cedillo)", is touting the Endorsement of US Senator Bernie Sanders (as seen on the billboard photographed on Avenue 26 by this Blogger) ............, but not without some inconvenient baggage.  In 2017, the "Yes on Measure S Campaign" released a detail report on various "Pay to Play Episodes" at City Hall. Included in the report was a detailed timeline of a series of meetings between CD-1 Councilman "Backroom Deal Cedillo" and noted Downtown LA Developer (and MEGA President Trump Fundraiser) Geoff Palmer ........., including one on the day before the 2016 California Democratic Primary Election.
