Villar-No-gosa Update for Thursday









Welcome back from your day off.

The details of the Mayor's torrid affair dripped out over the Fourth of July holiday and oh boy is it fun!

First off, what many of our readers have stated is true - Salinas reported on the Mayor's announced breakup with his wife on the June 8th 4:00 p.m. newscast on Telemundo - of course without mentioning that she indeed was the other women.

A number of journalists find this fact quite disturbing. This blogger has already called for her firing based in part on the previous firing of an NBC (the parent company of Telemundo) television reporter who had an affair with her producer.

It gets worse though, ERS News reports that Salinas allegedly lied at least three times to Telemundo management that she was not having an affair with the Mayor. High level NBC-Telemundo executives met Wednesday to discuss the network's options with regard to Salinas.

Luke Ford - the blogger who first broke the story that the Mayor's marriage was in trouble - picks up on the part of an LA Times story that has the Mayor - just four months after his election in 2005 - wandering into the lobby of the Sherman Oaks condominium where Salinas lives (you mean she doesn't live in CD 14?) with vino and take-out food (probably El Pollo Loco right Red Spot?) in hand. A neighbor was shocked to see the Mayor alone, without security and simply introducing himself as "Antonio." It doesn't get any more delicious than this! The Mayor of the 2nd largest city in the US sneaking around late at night for a booty call without any bodyguards in view. How incredibly reckless.

By the way, back in January some of our readers were telling you the Mayor's girlfriend was Mirthala. And some of you just wouldn't believe it (or were under orders to spin it away).

Click read more for other Villarsalinas news...

The story has jumped the pond! Though the mayor has denied the coming birth of an "anchor baby" a British blog wonders if reporters didn't go far enough in asking the Mayor if Ms. Salinas is not pregnant now, was she ever, and did she have an abortion? I guess it depends on what the meaning of the word is is. The Guardian Unlimited also picks up on the story.

An anonymous female lobbyist explains how media outlets and lobbying groups get an audience with Mayor V.

Independent Sources details the makeover Salinas had that might have helped her capture the Mayor's attention; going from a pretty bookworm look to a hot cheerleader style.

Flap says the Mayor's career is over.

On the other hand - since Rudy Giuliani, Gavin Newsom and President Clinton blazed a trail for Tony Villar, the Sacramento Bee says he may still be safe in his 2010 gubernatorial bid.

Tabloid Baby says the Mayor was a no-show at the Palisades Fourth of July parade, though he was scheduled to appear. (Were Garcetti, Zine and Rosendahl there in chaps?)

Steve Lopez confirms something I told Kevin James when I appeared on his program: Hispanic women are going to abandon the Mayor for his lustful cheating.

And finally, though everyone else has an opinion on the Mayor's sex scandal, blogger and Mayoral candidate Walter Moore does not. Walter has plenty of other reasons to tag the Mayor's performance as "terrible."

Two questions:

2) Why no mention of Villar's other alleged sancha - "He's now dating one of the members of his LAPD protective detail."

Would you like The Mayor better if he slept in the back of his van and didn't shave or shower, wore a ski cap and black glasses and stunk to high heaven while dancing around like a fool and ranting in public?

Let him be, he's just doing what we all do now and then. You are all just jealous of his success.

What will Antonio's fliers next time he wants to run for office have on them, certainly not his family. Tony Castro chimes in on Daily News today.

.....between Villaraigosa's marital breakup and affair with the political demise of one-time Democratic darling Henry Cisneros, the former mayor of San Antonio and Clinton administration Cabinet member.

"Cisneros was haunted by an affair that ruined his political career," Mintz said. "But what made his situation different was the financial shenanigans that showed this to be more than a sexual affair." Cisneros, according to reports and court documents, reached a secret agreement to buy his mistress' silence, then lied about it to the FBI during his Cabinet appointment vetting. It was a felony that led to his forced resignation and plea bargain.

Dear 7:17,
I think you hit the proverbial nail on the head...the name thing will be quite the big deal since the Mayor made such a big deal of his name when he ran for office and put his wife out front as teacher...funny, I, as well as many others, had just got hang of saying the two last name, last name, as a last name...I don't know who Tony "Villa" is? Is he related to "Pancho Villa"? He should probably get out front of this issue and state he will be keeping the Villaragossa name because it is his family name and the name of his children...and he intends to actively co-parent with his soon to be ex-wife...

Most politicians who have affairs whether they are Republican (Rudy), Democart (Cisneros), White (Clinton), Black (Jesse), Latino (Antonio) or even gay (McGreevy) are pretty much scumbags even before they had their affairs. Their affairs are just another sympton of their psychosis that shows them to be mostly poor decision makers on personal matters whether its getting favors in the Oval Office, putting up your girlfriend in a city apartment (Bernard Kerik), giving your boyfriend a state job or tomcatting around a condo complex late at night.

Quite frankly these guys like Antonio, Clinton and Rudy are sociopaths. Charming, seductive and don't give a shit about anyone else.

Does your husband or wife know this is how you feel? How do you define "success?" Going for 18 months without being caught? Cheating with an attractive mistress?

The fact is: WE all don't do this now and then.

This attitude shows how little trust, intregrity and ethics means to some people. Don't drag society down with your sociopathic / narcissistic views on what is “normal.” That just lowers the bar for the next scumbag.

The problem with this city is that we have MANY who have put themselves above their job, above their contituents and above ethics.

There is a feeling of entititlement that allows them to lie, cheat and steal.

The concept that its only illegal if you get caught, or its only bad if your poll numbers go down, is just sick.

No one says elected officials are perfect. Equally, no one should try to write off their indisretions as normal. That re-definition of normal is an attack on the fabric of society.

============================

Below is a comment from another post ... it basically explains everything you need to know ... the details are superfluous since these societal detritus operate the same way in every area of their existence:

I love these Clintonesque creatures who come out of the woodwork trying to claim that a person can segment their personality with such ease ... "Gee, just because he is a lying, duplicitous, conniving piece of shit in one area of his life doesn't mean he can't be honorable, trustworthy and productive in another area of his life!"

HAH!! Of course, if they run into one of these characters in their own lives who rips them off or screws them over, suddenly the perp really IS rotten through and through! Also, these defenders are usually themselves equally devoid of any character or honor whatsoever and are, in reality, vicariously defending themselves when they defend these scumbags!

"Big Kahuna" Villar? No, more like "Big Chihuahua" (in heat)!

Sleaze is sleaze and both he and the skank need to be kicked to the side ... real quick!

Gee, I don't mean to be "mean" or anything but, to be perfectly honest, while this IS a terrible situation for the wife and the family, I must point out that it is very likely this woman has known for a very long time what she was married to. After a certain point in time, sympathy for women who are willing to live with and put up with scummy men, whether cheaters, beaters, whatever, begins to wane!

When they were campaigning together she certainly was somewhat complicit in his lies, now, wasn't she?

And how do you explain to your children with a straight face that they have illegitimate half-siblings running around out there because daddy is a low life and, well, we can't really be sure just how many of them there may be?

Unquestionably she is a victim in all of this to a degree, but how willing was she to remain a victim? But, certainly, kudos to her for doing something about it ... finally!

Good morning Ladies and Gentlemen (removes hat and bows low):

How many of you enjoyed that fabulous fireworks presentation last night in the Marina? (Gets teary-eyed) Makes a man feel rather patriotic indeed for his adopted country, it does. But let's talk about something else, shall we?

Sots, do you know of a Janet Jenkins? I mention her because I suspect there is a Janet Jenkins lurking about in all of this, savvy? (rolls eyes) Oh bugger. I'm afraid I'll have to give you a little history lesson before I launch into my theory. Perhaps I can teach a quick course at Red Spot's Institute. Ah, yes. Here he comes now with the skivvies. Thank you Red Spot! (Dons gown and mortarboard, takes place behind lectern and begins to address sots)

It has been said that His Nibbs has something in common with a prince of the realm...they both have rather large ears. And they both found time to cheat upon their spouses, although, if you will, both men were married to rather striking women. Anyway, as surely as there is a Miss Salinas to Mrs. V, there was also a Janet Jenkins to Mrs. W AND Mrs. P.B. Mrs. P.B. went on to become Mrs. W. upon the death of the first Mrs. W. going on 10 years ago. Are you following what I am saying? (Pokes sot who has fallen asleep in class with stick) That's better.

It was rumoured that Janet Jenkins was the real "other woman" even though Mrs. P.B. (who is now Mrs. W.) was touted as the other women by the press. In this sitchy-ation that we have here, I would wager that Miss Salinas is in fact the US version of the UK's Janet Jenkins, and that she is, if you will, the flash and cover for the other other woman, savvy? (Scratches head) But if there is child involved then perhaps Miss Salinas is in fact the other woman and somewhere out there is the Janet Jenkins of this drama, for it was also rumoured that Miss Jenkins was three months pregnant when she married and that the child she carried was the get of the other bloke with big ears.

Sots, here is your homework assignment for the day. Is Miss Salinas the Janet Jenkins? Or is she the PB? And if she is the PB, who is the Janet Jenkins? (Steps down from lectern and gives gown and mortarboard back to Red Spot)

So there you have it, almost as if it came straight out of a novela. History repeating itself. Makes for interesting day time television, savvy?

Seems Tony may have sacrificed his baby for his career. Corina knew and tolerated Tony's adultery for almost their entire marriage, but this pregnancy was the last straw.

Salinas did not want to have an abortion and Tony was pushed into a corner and had no choice but to admit to an affair.

Here's a story to illustrate the depth of Tony Villar's lack of morals!

Yesterday I was listening to one of the local talk shows and of course the topic was entirely about the lack of ethics and morals of MAV.

One of the callers had a great story: He said that last year a volunteer group in the Valley had a 6 month project devoted to collecting donations of body armor, boots, and various supplies and gifts for our soldiers in Iraq. When they finally reached the 500,000 mark, the media wanted to do a story on their patriotism. The caller happened to be there on the day that the press arrived. He said that shortly after the cameras were set up, an entourage arrived and out came the Mayor! The caller said that the mayor immediately rushed for the cameras and started talking like he had been working with these volunteers from the inception of the project! In fact, the caller said, the mayor had never even heard about the project!

And, here's the good part: When the tv reporter started to interview the woman who was spearheading the project, MAV stood so close to her the whole time that he looked like a siamese twin! The caller said MAV would NOT leave her side until the cameras turned off.

And then, you guessed, it he RAN back to his SUV and driver...and sped off!

This caller was so disturbed about MAV's unsconsionable actions!!!

I'm telling you...Tony Villar is an ASSHOLE!

Yes, I think that if there is enough public outrage over one of their anchor/reporters breaking up the Mayor's marriage they will listen!

In English and in Español.

Don't you love their euphemisms? "Dating", "romance" ... it's like people who introduce you to their "fiance" and you find out they've been shacking up for years and have kids together! How about a little honesty ... "tonight's lay", "boinking" ... ?

Didn't anyone notice Tony's body language when he said,"She'not pregnant". He lowered his head and looked down (presumably at his feet) and did not give any eye contact whatsoever to the media. If you ready body language, he's lying about her pregnancy.

Democratic mayor: Personal issues don’t matter
Posted by Dennis Lennox · July 5th, 2007 · No Comments


L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has confirmed he had an affair with a TV reporter, but the up-and-coming Democrat says his personal life shouldn’t matter provided he performs his job. (The mayor also announced he’s getting a divorce after 20 years of marriage.)

That’s the same logic cheating politicians – both Republicans and Democrats – have tried using for years, and it is true that voters are caring less – unfortunately – about the morals of their elected leaders.

However, Villaraigosa is wrong – personal issues do matter.

Someone who cannot remain honest and loyal to their wife and family shouldn’t be entrusted with a public office. If a politician can lie to their wife of all people and break the sacred bonds of marriage, little will stop them from breaking the oath of office.

Nobody is perfect and everyone makes mistakes, but there are certain things – namely the integrity of our American democracy – that shouldn’t be compromised.

How can Hillary retain AV as a co-chair given his indiscretions and her history?

Doesn't it seem that this has slipped through the media cracks(so to speak)?

Why isn't Clinton getting pressure to remove him as a co-chair?

Can AV really be the keynote speaker at the Dem convention now?

Can Clinton really provide her promised endorsement if he runs for Governor?

Some enterprising reporter needs to ask these questions of the Clinton campaign.

In the Delgadillo situation, both he and his wife said they were wrong.

AV has never said that his affair(s) was wrong, that he's sorry for how he hurt Corina, made life worse for his kids, or made any mistakes.

Are we to believe that he truly thinks that all of this is OK?

Why is this issue relevant to the mayors leadership?

The mayor said (of his girlfriend) that she has the “highest journalistic integrity.”

Reporting on the breakup of a marriage when YOU are the other woman is not the "highest journalistic integrity." Sleeping with multiple elected officials while reporting on them is CLEARLY not a sign of integrity.

Being able to speak to Salinas' journalistic integrity straight-faced to the public shows why there is a problem.

The problem is trust. If he will say anything about anyone for his own self interest, he cannot be trusted to fairly lead the city.

It brings to mind "you're doing a heck of a job, Brownie" from Bush when New Orleans was clearly devasted and the job being done was CLEARLY not good to anyone else.

When the mayor says "person X is the right person for job Y," how could anyone believe him? The answer: They can't, and thats the problem.

Dr. Phil says men who cheat are very immature and can't control themselves like mature, adult men. I have a huge problem with Antonio not separating from his wife first then have the damn affair. A real man would have the guts to do that. A RAT tries to play both sides. And this Sallinas woman who has now hired a pr firm had already been with Fabian and Padilla. Now how desperate can Antonio be if he wanted to cheat to choose a woman who has no morals, no class, no conscience and already passed around by his friends? Unbelievable that fthe media jumps on this after Daily News broke the story but yet refuses to go after all those corruption tales we know about.

Villaraigosa's rise or fall in the political arena should be dictated by the fact that he's not all that good a mayor. The city's core problems are unchanged, police brutality continues, he spent a couple years and most of his political capital trying to take control of the school system and only succeeded because he bought the school board election. He governs by making sure he's on camera everywhere, but substantively there's little to boast about.

When one chooses to commit adultry in any case, let alone as a public servant, it means that the risks of playing outside the marriage were more important than the office itsself. I am completely unsympathetic. I don't want him representing me or my party. Dump all the dirt off the Democratic label and do it publically.

It really takes the cake, crap like this. We live in a divorce-happy society. Being divorced carries far less styma than being an adulterer, it is FAR less damaging to one's career, and not so bad visually, when one is representing a political party. Who is not aware that the US is in mired in some very strong political divisions and those divisions are generating some nasty players. As he now knows. Isn't this Bill all over again, a great politician, but can't keep it in his pants? Must we replay that scenerio over and over for the general public?

On the side: who is generating the evidence that ousts these little affairs, one after another? Republican bloodhounds or is our illustrious MSM finally deciding it is time to wake up from their political beauty sleep?

Apparently responding to blogger Luke Ford’s allegation that the Villaraigosas had split up, the mayor told the Times last night that the entire family — himself, Corina and the two teenage children — is living at Getty House. “Absolutely not true,” Villaraigosa said of the gossip. “We are not separated.” He did admit to strains, but called them “ups and downs.” The couple had broken up once, before he ran for mayor the first time, over his affair that coincided with Corina undergoing cancer treatment. Just who Villaraigosa spoke with last night is strangely murky. The Times attributed the comments to “an interview Thursday evening at Getty House,” but the short story carries no byline. Corina was not at home at the time, the paper said.

There were many ethic violations in Antonio’s 2005 campaign. He’s was using city staff to help with his campaign. He begged businesses in Boyle Heights to use their phones for phone banking yesterday. Ummmm…wonder if the press ever jumped on that story. Antonio doesn’t want to be labeled “Latino mayor” yet he had his phone bankers yesterday calling Latino voters stating he would be the 1st Latino mayor. The more intelligent Latinos would hung up the phone on them.

Villaraigosa fathered his first two children. He was 21 and had known the mother of his first daughter for just six weeks before she became pregnant. He was 25 when his second daughter was born to another woman.

After a fight during his 24th birthday celebration at a Wilshire Boulevard restaurant, Villaraigosa was arrested on suspicion of assault. He told a jury he had been defending his mother and sister against an abusive patron; he was acquitted.

But the rising star had also committed an indiscretion that would cost him dearly. He had an affair that became the talk of the Eastside political elite. His wife filed for divorce just one day after he won his first election.

The infidelity cost Villaraigosa the friendship of Molina, among others. Two years later, Corina Villaraigosa took her husband back, but Molina continues to keep her distance.

From the Los Angeles Times
Mayor’s girlfriend is placed on leave
Telemundo took the action while it investigates whether anchor Mirthala Salinas breached journalistic ethics by having a relationship with Antonio Villaraigosa.
By Duke Helfand and Steve Hymon
Times Staff Writers

3:16 PM PDT, July 5, 2007

Spanish-language broadcaster Telemundo placed newscaster Mirthala Salinas on leave today while it conducts an internal investigation into whether she breached journalistic ethics by having a relationship with someone she covered: Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.

"As we have stated, we are committed to journalistic excellence," said Manuel Abud, general manager of KVEA Channel 52. "Given the seriousness of the allegations that have been made, we have decided to conduct an internal review of the decisions and events that led us to where we are today. In the meantime, Salinas has been placed on a leave of absence from her duties pending this review.

"We will conduct this investigation with the utmost respect to personal privacy and journalistic standards."

Salinas, 35, declined to comment through a spokesperson. A spokesman for Villaraigosa said the mayor would have no comment at this time.

Telemundo executives have come under intense pressure to discipline Salinas after she and Villaraigosa acknowledged this week they had been involved in a relationship dating back more than a year. The mayor separated from Corina Villaraigosa, his wife of 20 years, early last month.

During at least part of their time together, Salinas was assigned to the "political beat," in which she covered the mayor on trips to New York and Sacramento. On the night he announced the separation from his wife, Salinas was the Channel 52 anchor who delivered the news.

Salinas was missing from her anchor chair on the 6 p.m. newscast the last two nights, but Telemundo officials would not say why. One Telemundo source familiar with the situation said station executives had not spoken to her because she had taken a couple of days off.

A source affiliated with Telemundo said that news executives were upset with Salinas for using an outside public relations representative and issuing a statement Tuesday about her relationship with the mayor without first running it by her bosses. One producer found out about her statement when it was reported on CNN, the source said.

Salinas could have hired Joe Cerrell who is a guru political pr man. Or Englander who does a lot of pr crisis. She shouldn't waste her time. Its women like this who have a name, money and the spotlight and instead of choosing to do good for the youth or women on various issues they are selfish and think of themselves. Trust me if Salinas was involved in a major charity or had done work helping at risk youth people wouldn't be bashing her so badly. AV has his own baggage.

I am scared to report this, but it runs in the family for the mayor of Los Angeles. His sister married a man she knew that was dying, took his money and had a boy toy on the side. When the husband dies after 6 months of marriage, she moved into his million dollar mansion in Hacienda Heights, paid off her $80,000 debts with his money, then moved her boy toy in. Investigate and see. She works for a non-profit in Los Angeles
