Records To Be Proud Of

The Hahn camp gets to put another feather in it's cap. This time one of their key supporters in the 2001 race received the largest ever recorded fine in the Ethics Commission's history.

Mark Alan Abrams was fined $270,000 for laundering political contributions to benefit James K. Hahn's 2001 mayoral campaign and the campaigns of two Hahn allies..

To be fair, Hahn does maintain that he didn't know that any of this was going on and that Abrams acted completely independent of them. Normally I wouldn't believe him, but since he also doesn't see or acknowledge that there is an ethics crisis surrounding his entire administration, maybe he truly didn't know. The San Pedro fog must be distracting his view.

Times and Daily Breeze

Did you hear Villaraigosa boast in the debate about the Smith-Villaraigosa bill! This reminds me of the story of the scorpion and the frog. Just like the scorpion, Antonio can't stop himself from doing what he does best: Taking credit for other people's hard work.

Changing the subject - Another example of how the Mayor's folks can stay on topic. If only he and his staff had given the same attention to the City that their giving to Antonio, we'd be better off today. And he wouldn't be fighting for his political career.

Sad how corruption ruins people.

THAT was changing the subject? (Maybe the object, not the subject). SacNights says there's no pro-Hahn motive there. Can you offer proof that this is coming from Hahn's camp rather than disgruntled people in Villaraigosa's district?

As a CD14 anti-Vilaraigosa resident, and NOT pro-Hahn, I accept your compliment - it was a compliment, right? - for staying on message.

----"Hahn for Mayor 2005 Campaign Strategy"----
***********30 Day Countdown**************

by Julie B.C.H. Wongmeister

Operation Pay-To-Play

In a marked reversal of our usual "Pay-to-play" operation, it will be Jimmy that will be paying (for votes) so that Jimmy and all of us "The Mayor's Men" may play again (another 4 years of screwing the dumb Angelenos).

What follows are proposed Pay Projects that our campaign may use (without it costing us anything) by billing, bilking, shafting and screwing the tax payers.

1. All 88 Neighborhood Councils "Leaders" will receive an autographed photo of Jimmy filling a pothole of their choosing.

2. These same "Leaders" will receive another $100,000 per NC for their annual mountain retreat which will feature training courses, such as:

A) Shafting the L.A. Taxpayer - "The Hahn Multi-Disciplinary Approach to Screwing"

B) 101 Ways to Fleece L.A.'s Sheep (The Taxpayer)

C) My Life as Mayor - Jimmy Hahn's personal reflections on his one-term as mayor. This course is rated MA (Mature Audiences Only). Conversation will include tales of greed, corruption, sex and the shocker - how boring it all was.

D) The Art of the Yawn - Using the Jimmy Hahn proven system

3. Padded Cash envelopes (using the Mayor's special fund- City of LA Account #72739-52 (Check your phone keys and unscramble) will be personally handed to "special" people utilizing and via our dedicated Maintenance Yard personnel (on city time) which will be delivered with the lawn signs that are currently stored in the following City properties:

a)All DWP facilities in the door marked "DANGER- DO NOT ENTER-YOU WILL DIE A HORRIBLE DEATH"

b) All union controlled city properties in the door marked "PELIGRO contribuyente - ser mal perdedor – Do Not Enter"

c) Saturday ONLY! At the city printing press in Piper Tech there will be a special secret run of exclusive Jimmy for Mayor stuff

4. A special buffet reception for all Jimmy Hahn supporters starring the “Nation of Islam Race-Baiters” and other surprise guests.

This is all very exciting for us as we move into new territory. We should all be proud that we, collectively, have raised the art form of screwing the tax payers to higher levels than ever done in this sick city.

Remember the Jimmy chant:

“Who do we screw?
The Taxpayer ! The Taxpayer! The Taxpayer
Yeaaaaaae…The Taxpayer..!

Jimmy’s Greatest Joke:

How many Angelenos does it take to screw in a light bulb?
1. Angelenos don't screw in light bulbs, they get screwed by the Mayor!
2. Five. Fleischmann Hillard to PR the issue, Antonio Villa to take credit for the issue, Parks to complain about the 3 day work week by the bulb installers, Alarcon to hand it over to the NC’s for resolution, Hertzberg to breakup the lightbulb and me, Jimmy, to financially rape you (the taxpayer) out of all your life savings.

Okay, Hanhsters let’s get back to screwing the city.

Your friend, Julie

Villraigosa must smoking the good chronic this time. Like he did when he was a teenager. I bet he will try to take credit for Prop 12 (Oh, he did...It was a Keely Bill), for the Healthy Families Bill (Oh, he did it should of been an Escutia Bill), Bio-Med Park at County USC (Oh, he did - It was Molina), Increase in homocides in CD14 (Oh No, he gives this full credit to the Mayor. He has nothing to do with htis one.) Thanks for your honesty on this one Antonio.

On a side note: AV has his own Fleishman type contract. Instead of this one paid for by the tax payers it is being paid for by the LA Times in the form of Jessica Garrison. AV: Are you asking her who is paying her salary? I thought she was your new Press Deputy. Her mentor is Matea Gold a they both are in love with AV. Too bad LA Times does not see this.

I don't believe John Shallman would make that many spelling mistakes.

Hey, I just recently read something that Keeley wrote praising Antonio for his help.
