City of Hooters?

We mentioned in today's Hot Sheet that allegedly the LA Department of Animal Services was doing some sort of fundraiser with Hooters. I have no problem with Hooters, but is the right venue for a city event? Not sure. Lets get Gloria Allred on the phone, hee hee. What's next? LA's Best Silent Auction at Chippendale's? Better call Rocky Delgadillo - we might wind up with something at a strip club soon!

The event is at not at Hooters. It's at the Kodak theater. The Department is not part of the event. They are just receiving the proceeds from the event.

Hooters does charity fund raisers for many animal shelters and animal rescue organizations. They donate to many other charities as well that benefit children, the elderly and infirmed.

I'm glad Hooters is helping the City's animals. I'm glad the Department is open to this type of help.

Hooray for Hooters! If the City will take campaign donations from sleazy developers, why not from a restaurant chain?

Antonio took campaign donations from Playboy. So did Galanter, Rosendahl, Weiss, Feuer, Wachs, Hayden and Woo. Playboy is nudity, Hooters is fully clothed women in a restaurant chain. What's the problem?

It brings me personal Deep Hurting to agree with Mayor Dan on this one.
Hooters + Animal Services = a PR disaster. The humane community is 99% female and this unholy alliance is counter-productive.

Animal Services was discretely circumspect during an event at the Playboy Mansion many years ago. A few decades ago, Tom Bradley almost fell scrambling to avoid being photographed next to soft-core actress/headline huntress Edy Williams at an animal shelter event.

With all the sexual harrassements suits the city has had to pay because of men behaving badly this sends the wrong message. I'm sure all the "this is ok, what's wrong with it" posts are guys. Women scantily clad showing as much of their breats and butts as they can just to get men to buy drinks at an establishment is an embarrassement and sets women back 100 years. Men are dogs and have an immature attitude on these type of issues. I wonder how many would want their sisters being heckled and harrassed by a bunch of sleazy drunk guys? I wouldn't be surprised if it was Antonio's idea cause this is right up his alley.

Set women back 100 years?? Surely you jest. Find me the woman who doesn't capitalize on her assets if she has them. It's human nature and it's no different than the naughty thought that passes through every man's brain for one tiny second when he sees most any woman.

Of course in the exclusive "animal activist" world of Los Angeles politics, there are quite a few women who think they've got better assets than they do and they don't mind showing them off on their websites by putting as many pictures of themselves they can find up there or entering themselves in online contests and then going back and voting for themselves over and over again. Then there is the crazy loon that just got out of prison who is an old character actor trying to pass herself off as a former child "star". She's not capitalizing on that?

Then there's the nutty Dan Guss, who loves to post his own picture and I've yet to figure out why. I have to assume this guy thinks pretty highly of himself too.

The best part? They all hate each other even though they're supposed to be all about the "cause", which should be animals. Instead, they call each other names, fight incessantly with the Mayor's staff, try like hell to get the only person in the Mayor's office who cares about animals fired, threaten, start stupid blogs, find has-been reporters of off beat newspapers to help them with their hate mission, bash Ed Boks for no reason, start rumors about each other to go along with their simultaneous competitive blogs and THEN - these same so called animal lovers complain loudly to the press that the City is embarrassing them with a Hooters Fundraiser. If they loved animals so much, wouldn't they be grateful for any restaurant who did a fundraiser? Or any other person who was working toward the same goal of their shared cause?

Jesus, what a bunch of nuts.

Hey girls - you aren't that hot and you're all past your prime. Daniel - you aren't either. To make things worse, you all rant and ALL pretend like you're the only person that has a secret "in" with each other and at City Hall when NONE of you really do. Not a single one....

Now why don't you all go play nicely with each other and be grateful that someone is doing a fundraiser. Karma. What comes around goes around and you need to remember that while bitching, blogging, backstabbing, moaning and protesting.

To the prudish people in the City who are complaining about tarnishing the image of Los Angeles, please.... a Hooters fundraiser is nothing compared to some things I can think of that tarnish our name.

To the prudish poster at 3:42, if your sister or other female relative gets a job at Hooters, you're damn straight they're going to be heckled by men and they knew that before they went there. Why do you hate men so bad? You called them pigs, immature and sleazy drunks. You need to get laid.

This woman thinks we've got much bigger issues in the City to work on and this non productive complaining about a Hooters fundraiser should be the least of our concerns.

You trashed Daniel Guss's participation on Sister City before because he was both unreliable and a lightning rod for spam replies from every animal crank in L.A.

You're not doing yourself any favors by acknowledging his latest anti-Ed Boks diatribe (he'd be singing a very different tune if he'd gotten the job he wanted a few months ago, no doubt!), which, like so much of Guss's tripe, is predicated on a fundamental untruth.

The Animal Services Department is not sponsoring an event at Hooters. It is the designated charitable beneficiary of a swimsuit contest that will take place there in July. But the City department has nothing to do with organizing or staging the event. The reaction of Guss and some other prudish Boks critics just shows either that the "new Victorian" era is alive and well or these hypocrites are even more shameless than ever.

Guss is so eager to beat up on Boks that he'll say anything to make him look bad. Unfortunately anybody who unwittingly plays along with his dirty game gets covered in the same mud. We'll turn the spigot and hose Mayor Sam down at the appropriate moment...

Obviously you hate the whole world because the world hated your bikini party and had the nerve to agree with Dan Gus. But it's very twisted to threaten Mayor Sam. He doesn't agree with you and you threaten him? It seems very twisted.

hey I just wanted to chime in here.... first off we were planning a bikini contest and thought... "hey lets give the money to charity." Puppies and Kitties sounded like a reasonable enough beneficiary and LA Animal Services was contacted. We just wanted to help out... we didn't realize it would create such a problem. We could understand more if the problem everyone was having was that its a bikini contest... but the problem evidently is where we work.
I think its ridiculous. The bikini contest will go on and the money will now go to the Amanda Foundation.(a non profit organization that doesn't want to look down its nose at us like City Controller Laura Chick)
We do fundraisers constantly and its not fair to act like our money is not good enough.
Im the kind of girl who will put money in a boot to help MDA every time I walk by a boot drive. I cant pass a bell ringer without emptying my pockets of change. Evidently because I wear orange shorts and a white tank (more than some people allow there little girls to walk around in) my moneys not wanted.
Its discrimination. If Brittany Spears, a girl who wears quite a lot less than I do wanted to donate money raised by calendar sales would it be turned away?
Im sorry but I think making this kind of fuss is a "step backwards." Refusing money that would have benefited animals in a city over populated with them is a "step backwards." The whole thing is just stupid.

Don't worry, 90% of the country is on your side. You just had one group of disgruntled people called the ADLLA stirring up this shit.

They are posers who pretend to love animals, but in reality just hate the mayor.

They've never done one good deed in their lives and nobody takes them seriously.

The more the city acts like the prudes that they really aren't, just want to "appear" to be.. the worse they look and the more press you get.

Hooters gets good press, the Amanda Foundation gets money and the city of Los Angeles and the ADLLA look absolutely ridiculous.

Where is the mayor on this? Oh, he's out trying to take over the school system. He doesn't have time for any old city business.

The Mayor should have stood behind the Department over the Hooters event. They should have swapped out the bikini pic for the Hooters girl in shorts and the flier would have been fine. These are desperate times. Thousands of animals are killed in the shelters every year because of lack of spay/neuter. The Department desperately needs money for spay/neuter. Gary Michelson of the Found Animals Foundation was going to give the City some of his $1.3B for spay/neuter but Dave Loftus the con man who runs the Foundation will only approve of programs which financially benefit himself personally. No money for spay/neuter but money for microchips and kiosks? Micrchips and kiosks don't save lives, spay/neuter does.

This really is a Hooters Girl and I really do work to the Hollywood location. And we really are enraged that this whole fuss is started by some guy, Daniel Guss, who just wants to get Ed Boks fired. I think its ridiculous that someone who claims to have the best interest for animals in mind would sabotage an event to raise awareness and money.
But I'm just a stupid Hooter Girl... I'm learning that my opinions and money aren't worth anything to the city of LA. Evidently its okay to offend us and treat us like second class citizens as long as we don't piss of the Feminist out there. We have girls who served in the Reserves, students working there way through college, one studying medicine another studying to communicate with the deaf... yeah were the bottom rung over here.

Good for you, Hooters girl. Nevermind Daniel Guss. He's a loser. He just insulted the Barbi twins because they support the Hooters event. He'll attack anyone if they support anything that Ed Boks supports. Ed couldn't give him a job so now Guss is just a "woman scorned" on a one man mission to destroy the guy leaving a ton of dead animals in his wake.

Rumor has it that Guss prefers small, flat chested asian women because they look like eight year old boys. He's a closet homo, that's why he's "offended" by Hooters.

She looked good enough in a bikini but she is still no political dynamo if we were all to be honest.

She is no different than Mary Cummins. Two okay looking women who think they look a lot better than they do. What's wrong with that?

Charlotte is a nicer person than Mary. Make no mistake about that. Mary has ruined her reputation because of years of online message boards where she caused way too much trouble. She entered herself in an AOL contest. How vain can you be? Then, I just looked at the Charlotte Laws website and she probably would have entered herself if she had known about it.

Two has beens. Okay, big deal.
