I am glad the City Council members listened to the voters and did not put the measure on the ballot.
What is up with Janice Hahn? I guess she knows her brother is in big trouble.
I agree with what Bernie Parks said the other say on the news. Mayor Hahn will find out the meaning of a recall on March 8th!

A historic year then, when both of the 2001 front runners are "recalled" and lose their jobs, back-to-back.

The city council betrayed the head of our city and the voters by not putting this measure on the ballot. Now LA residents will have to remain living in fear and have a few members of the city council to thank for it. But come March 8, they can personally thank two of them and send a clear message that our mayor needs to be followed.

Today's city council Janice Hahn showed she has bigger balls than Antonio and Padilla put together. Good for her nailing ADVs butt in front of his community. Boyle Heights embarrassed his little ass. Word is he's just kissed off their vote. Seniors who vote in numbers in Boyle Heights. He came off like a selfish idiot. Meat we hear he got criticized for not speaking. He'll never get the Latino vote now with that sad showing.

After insisting loudly that she had her staff develop this political bombshell on her personal time and that it remain private, Chick then caved to Public Records Act request by the Weekly and released the report on taxpayer time, at City Hall, no less

Whimp ass Padilla voted to send the ballot idea to the city attorney two weeks ago. He even wanted to have his own ballot measure put on for May with a majority to win. Then all of a sudden he changes his mind and sticks with the other two biggest losers Parks and ADV. If he aligns himself to either of these two morons he just kiss his political career goodbye. Wld he really be that big of an idiot? Maybe!!!

Sorry he disappointed Mayor Poopy, but this local tax is political idiocy at its best. Interesting to see that Zine and Smith also aligned themselves with Antonio and Parks. Do you think they're political careers are over as well?

Antonio and the Mayor can slip and slide all they want on this one, it blew up in both their faces.

Hertzberg is the clean alternative.

And no matter how late MEAT is going to stay up doing OR on Hugsberg, its too late. Bob already did it on himself and he's clean,.

MEAT: "An Antonio vs Bob race would wonderful."

While I doubt seriously that you actually believe that, then pass the word back to AV. Here's the deal if they do end up in a runoff ex-speaker vs. ex-speaker: No slime, no sneaky crap that can't be proven, no late hits when there's no time left to clear it up before the vote. (No fair counting the direct, legit complaints from Antonio's countless other disgruntled enemies and unhappy district people, though).

If you think Tony V's people would buy those "fair fight" terms and throw away the only tricks they've ever won a campaign with in local L.A. politics, then I can sell you the Third Street Bridge, cheap! And AV's field staff will have just swept it off -- badly.

"Includes" CD14 is not the same thing AS CD14. Not even a clever dodge...

The state of California includes CD14, too.

Harriman, if you want to use those figures that way (not accurate, but for the sake of argument), then Tony Villar's approval DROPPED 9 POINTS in less than one week, from MEAT's 81 percent approval (ha!) not even 7 days earlier.

I don't buy the starting numbers, but I find the rate of decline VERY believable. If it continued, he'd have hit 63 percent last week, be at 54 this weekend, and on his way to near zero by election day next month. Of course you were joking, but if you want to try and sell that shoddy premise, you have to buy the full extension of the running gag, too!

Don't fall for that one, S-Nights. Only a moron, political neophyte, compulsive gambler, or campaign consultant who's trying to justify using up millions in donations to get (down) to 20 points, would put numbers out at this stage. There are still way too many dynamics in play and no comparable 3rd party polling to base any real predictions on. Even if Tony V.'s people want to believe the now 2-week-old L.A. times numbers have some meaning to the primary outcome, then they also have to admit they show him 20 percent lower than their posted predictions earlier that week (25 percent).

The LAT polls is only thing new thing in this race. Everyone is saying the same old thing. Quite frankly, I am surprised the LAT is even covering most if not all of the debates. I understand the Daily News would since they have plenty of space in between those ads for Robinsons May and some barbeque place.

Nothing is new and fresh in this campaign. LA politics is no NYC or Chicago. LA politics is boring beyond the term.

So with that said, the polls mean nothing because nothing is happening. Even so, Hahn and Villaraigosa can only go down, while Parks and Hertzberg can only go up. Alarcon will go nowhere. But this race so far is everyone against Hahn

MEAT just admitted in one of these posts that CD14 hates Antonio. At least he's finally coming out of denial. Gotta love those Hahn and Alarcon signs on the Northeast side of town in his district.
