City Hall: Cocaine, International Bribes, Masturbation and Monkeys

You absolutely must read the article entitled "A Tiilating Tale of City Hall Life" in today's L.A. Times by Ted Rohrlich and Jessica Garrison.

And can someone please tell us who the un-named Council Member who, nine years ago, was "on cocaine" and "caught with a big stash of porn?" They omitted the name.

Here's more background for those with short memories of former CM Mike Hernandez:

Source: LA Times Magazine, 2/6/2000 By Beth Shuster

He left his wife, drank a quart of tequila a night and fed a $100-a-day cocaine habit. He smoked pot, watched porn videos in his office and slept with an aide. Always broke, he borrowed money from close friends and staff members. Eight times in three years, lenders initiated foreclosure proceedings on his home in Cypress Park. His credit was shot. He was sued for failing to pay department stores, even a video rental store. His checking account was closed due to insufficient funds. In the evenings, he traded City Hall for pool halls and bars--the Brave Bull in San Gabriel, the Fourth Dimension in Monrovia, the Golden Cue in Glendale...

Hint: He was forgiven by his colleagues -- including Laura Chick - and became a lobbyist.

Sexual Escapades Edition

"SEX SELLS!!!" JOUNALIST BAQUET, I know those bean counters at Big Tribune are putting pressure to inprove the bottom line at "THE OLD GREY HAG ON SPRING STREET". But as Hugh Hewitt says today on his Blog, you guys have "JUMP THE SHARK". you and the others in the atiquated "MAIN STREAM MEDIA" are in the open with your schilling for the "GAY BASHING, NEOCON (ie. JEW ) HATING, LEFT WING DEMOCRATS. If I remember the stance of this fish wrap, the Clinton-Lewinski Affair was a personal matter. Eight years later your attitude has change 180 degrees. Let me now reward you "THE WASTE OF A SPACE AWARD" for the story on a consentual relationship. Yet, below the fold, you relegate the only debate between the "KENNEDY REPUBLICAN" and "LIBERALIDES".
On the local level the Wong Scandal has more merit because of the "Pay to Play" angle. but once again your lack of depth in covering the "LABOR" connection to this story cause in to wonder if their is some editorial interference taking place in the Newsroom. (Think "HIS POLLONESS" close relationship with Miguel Contreas's widow). Objectivly, the Foley story is bias journalism at its worst. I guest a "GAY REPUBLICAN" is open to redicule. On "Pay to Play" their is a deeper story that needs objective reporting.

FYI, MIKE HERNANDEZ was the First District Councilman who was videotaped snorting cocaine off the dashboard of his SUV. this guy still has a cushy city job, REPORT ON THAT TIMES!!!

Hey, as I explained back when I ran for mayor, I had ZERO interest in local government until I heard the $9 billion -- later $11.5 billion -- price-tag for the LAX remodel. That met my jurisdictional minimum to take notice. If only I knew as little now as I knew then, I'd be a happier taxpayer; ignorance is bliss.

Not just a lobbyist, a city hall staffer for other councilmembers AFTER the fall, always standing behind the horseshoe.

The only thing about Hernandez that really changed was his pay grade.

For the record, Mike Hernandez is not a lobbyist. He is a paid staffer for Jan Perry and Bernie Parks.

One of the ways that this helps him is that it takes 10 years to vest into the city's retirement system. Anyone who leaves earlier loses the city's generous contributions. That's one of the other benefits of extending term limits from 8 to 12 years.

While the "OLD GREY HAG ON SPRING STREET" is fixated on SEX nationally, SEX locally. NORTH KOREA goes nuclear. Leave it to the North Korean "DEAR LEADER" to upstage his Los Angeles counterpart "DEAR LEADER POLLORAIGOSA" One would love to be a microphone in "HIS POLLONESS" hotel room. Imagen the dialog;

"HIS POLLONESS": Maria, how dare the North Koreans upstage me on my Asian tour!!! Do they understand who I am ?.

"MARIA": POLLO dear, our conrades are only protecting themself from that inperialist pig Bush.

"HIS POLLONESS": maybe we can add them to the POLLO ASIAN TOUR. we can offer them landing rights at Van Nuys Airport.

"MARIA": our fellow worker paradise will open you with open arms.

Mike Hernandez was the coke head. Police raided his office and found coke residue all over the place along with the largest porn video collection they had ever seen. After he got busted - supposedly his wife turned him in - his staff was treated to counseling, at city expense, where they were informed that the huge porn collection was because cocaine makes you horny.

And he still served out his term. Guess who his chief of staff was - Ed Reyes. The other pussy working on his staff was Ed's chief of staff, Jose.

Antonio worked for Mike's campaign when he first ran and was - and probably still is - one of his snorting buddies, along with Gloria Molina's husband Ron. Latinos had two cokeheads representing them during this period, the other being Richard Alatorre whose sister currently works for Antonio.

City hall police once found Mike doing that staffer - Helen - on top of his desk because she was "accidentally" pushing the panic button during one of their sessions. Antonio had his fun with this staffer also. Afterall, true marxist share everything/

You all know damn well if we did something like Mike Hernandez during work hours or even after with cocaine and got caught we would be in JAIL. Why hasn't Mike ever done jail time? Leave it to assholes like Bitter Bernie and Jan Perry to keep Mike on the payroll. When Mike is in council you can still see him shaking like a coke feine.

Why waste time talking about the old story of Mike Hernandez, let's do something about now! Guess you can't find anything, Huh!

And then there was that pathetic letter Mike Hernandez sent out asking for an apology. He blamed his problems on the death of his mother. We all rolled our eyes at this, and now that time has passed we see that there STILL is no accountability, corruption and greed. Anything and anyone endorsed by the Mayor and the Clowncil has to go!
