Open Thread for Wednesday

We ran a piece the other day, "City Without Ethics" which highlighted a Daily News report that a number of city contractors found to have violated campaign laws by the Ethics Commission, were still being allowed to bid on city projects.

Here's a great letter from one of the Daily News readers. Feel free to blog away, dum dums.
Re "L.A.'s ethical void" (June 25):

It is no surprise that there is a scandalous ethical void in the Ethics Commission when those persons who manage it claim ignorance of the rules that they are mandated to enforce such as money laundering.

But according to Commissioner Bill Boyarsky, bidders for city contracts should not be burdened with the stigma of a prior criminal conviction like money laundering.

what's up with the EAA union. Are they still getting stiffed by AV? Seems like every other union is cutting good deals in this supposed era of tight budgets.

Archie, she is busy calling Boks to tell him that girls in bikinis are setting the womens liberation movement back 100 years.

How can she worry about real Ethics?

I think Riordan called Villaraigosa and told him to call Laura and have her call Boks and give him a good dressing down.

That way they can keep the constituents and the good politicians all distracted while they do some more back door dirty work.

Who needs Ethics? This is LA!
