Mayor's Top Pick At DWP Resigns -- I'm Sure It's Not Just So He Can Step Into The TOP Office, Shortly (Or CD 5 CM?)

***** SATURDAY 10:37pm UPDATE *****
Welp, looks like ZD stumbled upon something again, thanks to the Mayor Sam readers who pointed it out. There's something BIG going on regarding Villar/Nahai and DWP.

ZD never knows which issues are gonna "blow-up" here, or not. So here's an example of a little ol' reference to the LA Times story on Nahai stepping down...


AND I THINK THERE IS A SENSE OF "DESPARATION" OVER THE TIMING OF ALL OF THIS...MUCH - MUCH MORE TO COME...I think this avalanche of shadiness is gonna end up burrying at least one or two folks. (Politically, at least.)

So out of all the stuff ZD has been blogging about so hard (to take a bite out of shadiness)...looks like this is gonna be a big thorn in Villaraigosa's Citywide shakedown attempt. Not that I've been doing this for that long, but when the chatter gets like this...I know what's next. LAUSD/CHARTERS, NON-PROFIT SCAMS, DONE/NC STAFFER CONFLICTS, ELLIS ACT REFORM, AFFORDABLE HOUSING SCAM...IT'S GONNA BE HUGE. NEWSPAPER REPORTERS...GET READY!

From: latimes.com ("National News" section)

Head of DWP board resigns

Move is seen at City Hall as H. David Nahai's first step toward securing the utility's top executive position.
By David Zahniser, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer
October 6, 2007

The president of the Los Angeles Board of Water and Power Commissioners resigned Friday, a move interpreted at City Hall as his first step toward securing the top executive job at the $4.2-billion municipal utility -- the nation's largest.

H. David Nahai, an attorney who lives in Benedict Canyon, submitted his resignation to Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. Within hours, two sources close to Villaraigosa described Nahai as the mayor's top pick to replace DWP General Manager Ron Deaton, who has been on medical leave since July.

Deaton, who earns nearly $345,000 a year, went on leave after suffering a heart arrhythmia during a trip abroad...and has been absent during a crucial time, with the agency coming under fire from City Council members after the recent heat wave caused power disruptions. Earlier this week, the agency agreed to pursue rate increases: 9% over two years for electricity and roughly 6% over two years for water.

full article

What the LA Times doesn't mention in the article is that this guy Nahai, is Villaraigosa's "wining and dining" drinikng bud. And they sure do get inappropriately loud and boisterous at times, in restaurants, for all to hear (about their plans...like when ZD gets a little too boisterous about finding a six-pack of those little juicy-juice jugs for only a dollar at the grocery store.) But did the twos' loud and obnoxious drunken public behavior cause people to lose contracts? And why did someone just tell me to type "Suzanne Reyes" into my batcomputer shady-searchers?

[Alright Captain Jack, take your flourish and bows...and please add on.]

I heard Nihai and the midget Mayor out imbibing spirits on one of their loud and rowdy binges, boasting about how they put one over on the voters with this tax hike for DWP and those pay raises. Now, it will be easier to get illegal mexican cholo gangbangers to take some jobs away from Americans, and if Nihai heads the DWP, they won't get fired no matter what they do or how unqualified they are. Some of those cholos couldn't find the black and red cables to jumpstart a car (but they can hotwire one), so they'll have a steep learning curve, that's for sure.

I heard all that with my own ears and you heard it here on Mayor Sam so it must be true.

(Like that the guy is the mayor's drinking buddy and they have been blabbing about the rate hike a little too loud publicly. And the fact that he may take over the top spot is no coincidence, given their close, personal "frat boy" relationship with each other.

But I know you already knew all of that. Because you are "Mr. Perfect Who Always Knows Everything."

I hope you are not getting paid by the mayor out of his private fund, raised with LAX concession promises.

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

I heard the most interesting conversation last evening amongst several sots at that smart new club, Blue Velvet. And what was it they were saying? (Zuma lad, pay close attention for it concerns you.)

Apparently there was a meeting not that long ago where the topic of discussion was "How To Make Friends And Influence People While Discrediting Still Other People Who Occasionally Blog Upon Blogs Like This One," savvy?

And under said topic mentioned above was the brilliant idea of negative spinning or in a more particular term, inoculating the general population against what is put forth by certain folks who, if you will, take a purported negative view against the establishment. And who are these "blog targets"? Zuma Dogg, The Red Spot Of Reason In CD 14, Yours Truly, Mayor Sam and Antonio Watch. (Shakes hands of others on list) Gentlemen, it is an honour and privilege to be considered a member of this exclusive fraternity. I salute you! (Takes sip of rum and sighs with satisfaction).

Any one of the above can post anything at any time, and the standing order is to immediately begin a negative discourse that starts with sexual inability and escalates to name calling and a portrayal of those on said list as "dumb," "stupid," etc. What I find hysterically funny about all of this is the one of us who is the male model has no trouble whatsoever with women (bloody bugger has a never ending supply) while another two of us each hold advanced degrees from fine institutions such as Harvard and Oxford and are noted to be top rated in their field, savvy?

As for Suzanna Reyes, we understand that she can be had rather cheaply. Just ask Joe Avila who managed to get her to have a private meeting with him in order to force a political endorsement...a meeting that Suzanna readily agreed to having, savvy? No, she's not the sort of wench one would want to take home to Mummy, savvy?

Captain Jack Sparrow, you undoubtedly have some of the best writing chops on this blog along with a great sense of humor, but your "naming names" is surprisingly and uncharacteristically ungentlemanly -- even for a pirate.

For starters, you have yet to spell the lady-in-question's name correctly. Not a good sign.

Secondly, your assumption that the lady-in-question can offer an endorsement -- forced or otherwise -- through an enviro political committee (especially THAT group) speaks volumes about what you don't know about THAT organization. For starters, try "f'in difficult" to gain consensus on anything, much less a political endorsement.

You owe the lady-in-question an apology and a bow so deep you crack your skull and crossbones on the dock.

A personal attack like this on someone who is neither an elected nor running for office just seems so out of bounds -- even for the Mayor Sam blog -- and only raises questions about your own agenda.

But if it really bothers you, then you should just ignore my comments and move on to the junky content that he provides.

Good evening Mr. Hoff (tips hat and draws sword):

I do not assume, sirrah. Perhaps you might want to ask the lady of said enviro-political group yourself who spells her name Susannah. Ask her how it came to be that she allowed a private meeting between Master Avila and herself and two of said group's endorsement committee members to push for an endorsement. Ask her if the campaign managers and/or other candidates were invited to so the same. Ask her if the entire endorsing committee was privy to this meeting which, if you will, they were not. Ask her if it was not brought up at said group's Ex Comm meeting that the endorsement was not hers to make but rather that of the committee that does the picking and choosing. And after you have asked her that, sirrah, ask her who was peeking in the window at the time said meeting with Master Avila and herself and two other persons was being conducted in a public place. (Whispers confidentially) She's so entertaining when she squirms. Besides, you can always ask Jose, savvy?

Furthermore, sirrah, anyone who aides or abets is, if you will, very much so targeted as fair game within the cross-hairs. The wench aided and abetted, with witnesses to prove it, for the purpose of giving a certain candidate an edge. (Wipes hands together) Case closed, done deal, thank you very much and don't forget to stop off at the gift shop on the way out. And you of all people should know that nothing is fair in politics in less of course you are more of a novice than you let on OR the master doesn't pay a decent hourly wage, savvy?

Additionally, naming names is on the list of approved activities for pirates if they choose to do it or it serves any sort of advantage in the game of politics. I've dropped plenty of names before. It's not my fault you don't know who goes by what moniker. (Hears a woman yelling. Rolls eyes) Oh bugger, it's Mrs. Kefflebaum. Thanks piles, Mr. Hoff, you woke the harpy up. (Turns around to address Mrs. Keffelbaum) Good evening to you to, Mrs. Keffelbaum. Yes, we're playing nicely in the sandbox. No need to call my Mum. NO, I'M NOT DRINKING HARD LIQUOR!!! However, I can't speak for Jack Hoff. Feel free to call his Mum. He hasn't called her in a while and could use a good talking-to. (Waves goodnight)

(Turns back around to speak to Jack Hoff) As for the spouse of Clowncilman Reyes, I mean her no disrespect as she was not the she of which I was speaking. (Reaches for the lady's hand and kisses it elegantly)

Finally, Mr. Hoff, I thank you for your kind words about my chops. However, it takes more than chops to be a pirate in this town. (Removes pirate hat and hold up dreds) It's the hair you wear and not the hair down there, savvy?

A house of cards
......THE house of cards that is Los Angeles City Hall's corrupt system of shifting money from taxpayers to special interests is collapsing.

City leaders' giveaways are rapidly outpacing their ability to bring in new funds, creating a perilous financial imbalance.

For the insiders - the unions, developers, contractors - this is a bona fide crisis. For the rest of us, it's a great opportunity to remake the city into one that serves the people instead of serving itself.

Last week, city leaders agreed to a massive, five-year, 23 percent pay raise for most city workers. And they did it in the face of a slowing economy, cooling real-estate market and the very likely possibility that courts will find they have been taking the public's money illegally.

I think my concern, Captain Jack Sparrow, is that once you start naming names, you open the door to someone else putting a "bounty" on your own head.

Once your name is secured and the blood money paid, it seems to me that there would be an avalanche of C&D ("Ceaseth & Desisteth") letters which don't hold a lot of water in the legal world, but are kind of annoying to get in bulk at one's place of business -- ostensibly, somewhere in City Hall -- leading to all kinds of conjecture about you and your job.

It appears to this political novice that your candidate did not get an endorsement from THAT enviro group through the assistance of the lady-in-question. Are we to infer that your candidate received enviro support from the OTHER groups (the ones with younger members, better grassroots, and more money to spend?).

Regardless, I would leave axe-grinding to the Tin Woodsman. It is beneath you. Sharpen your sword and your quill instead of being so obtuse. Those of us not as clever as you (looks around, "oops, it's just me") still enjoy the challenge of figuring out Captain Jack Sparrow's hidden meanings. Why take away our fun?

Psycho, we're so afraid of you. Have your meltdown in Crity Hall, give the City Attorney the final excuse. The one impoverished "fan" you have, who has to read your blog at the library because she doesn't have a computer to scan the real news, may have to find something useful to do. Don't you know that people use you to get at someone, so reading this shows who is mad at whom, not anything real? Captain Jack, your candidate is gone. Get over it.

What would the citizens of Los Angeles do without Mayor Sam’s investigative reporting team, who is the envy of all print media in Los Angeles? The volumes of intellectual discourse in the comments section of this blog, is more than sufficient to prove the educational level of the readers and supporters of Mayor Sam's blog. Yes the insightful commentary on this blog is indicative of the thousands of Los Angeles residents who are your well educated and informed readership which so dearly love and depend on you. Please do not let the detractors sway you conviction for the pursuit of truth and justice in the halls of City Hall.

I just love all the haters who keep saying how low life people who read and post here are. How horrible Mayor Sam, Captain and Zuma are. Yet, if the thousands of blogs they come here to post and read at post attacks. The fact is THIS BLOG broke the Mecha Mayor's scandlous affair a year before Daily News broke the story. Fact is many who post here know the inside of city hall from many field staffers who hate their bosses and the Mayor. How many staffers have left Antonio, Jose, Zine has gone through 5 Chief of Staffs and the list goes on. Say what you want haters but haven't you heard the saying "Negative publicity is still publicity." Why do you think all the immature actors get in trouble on purpose? To get media attention and you're giving Zuma and this blog attention. IF you don't like it start your own damn blog and quick wasting space posting your bullshit,.

I just saw the clowncil replay of the phone tax issue. What a bunch of crap!!
the Mayor has 26 CITY CARS, FIELD STAFFERS HAVE CITY CARS so why don't they cut those back to save money?? Instead of cleaning their own house first its easier to go to voters. Word is this tax WILL NEVER PASS not even with 50%. Clowncil will spend millions trying to scare the residents sayng services will be cut back. they should start by deporting all the illegals who use those services.

4:38 (next to last): say what? Talk about people who post without saying anything. Let's see, who would have an incentive to kiss a smelly dogg's butt? Could it be his fellow blogger going anon., worried as your blog's revenue and newsworthy comments have dried up Must be Sam or Antonio Watch. Boy, what a life -- like your "name," devoted to just watching one guy while no one cares about you and your blog except for not wanting to have to look at creepy losers whining and wasting time. You and your racist, one-note ranters (like the "Mayor has 26 cars" dimwit who follows you) are just fun reading to see what happens when misfits with anger management issues try to run a "political" blog.

(Shakes head) Zuma, Zuma, Zuma...

The only "power" behind me is my pea-sized brain trying to communicate to Captain Jack Sparrow that I believe he is behaving in a manner that is petty, arrogant and foolish when he uses this blog to impugn the morals of an enviro political chair who also happens to be a city employee in human resources at the DWP over an election that (I'm guessing) happened two years ago -- and didn't go his way.

Either that or maybe he's mad because she didn't forward his DWP job application because he insisted on wearing a three-pointed hat with a big-ass feather in it to the job interview...

8:07, there is no "we" downtown at City Hall that you speak of. It is you sitting in your dirty home office at your computer with your unbrushed teeth wearing your dirty boxers and tee shirt that you slept in. Stop pretending like you're an operative from the 3rd or 4th floor. You aren't fooling anybody.

Mr. Jack Hoff,

You seem awfully put out by Captain Jack's comments about Susanna Reyes.

Obviously you are a Sierra Club member who is offended by the allegations.

If you are a Sierra Club member, carefully pay attention to what really happens behind the scenes during their sham "endorsement committee". If you aren't a Sierra Club member, then you shouldn't take umbrage with Captain Jack for mentioning the name of a woman who chooses to have the reputation of the "Political Expert" at the club. Fair game it seems to me.

Good afternoon Mr. Hoff (raises eyebrow):

You are wrong, sirrah, on both counts. I did not, do not and will not have a candidate in any political race nor am I a disgruntled person whose application was not forwarded to the Personnel Department. As for leaving a spot the colour of which you are free to choose on a lady's character, I state again that this individual chose to aid and abet and THAT makes her fair game.

(The dawn of recognition appears on Captain Jack Sparrow's face and he snaps his fingers) Brilliant!!! I've bloody well got it! (Whispers confidentially to Jack Hoff) You're the bloke who's skulking about like a creeping Jesus with her, eh? (Winks conspiratorially and hands Jack Hoff a feather for his cap, makes the Sign of the Cross and grins) Such a gallant you are! (Crew applauds) Goodonya! Your secret is safe with me.

And while we're on the subject of merry wenches, a quick w00t to Captain Robert's First Mate who is not only an artful thief but a damned fine hostess to boot. Madame, I salute you! (Whispers) More about my weekend sojurn with my fellow Captain in another thread on this blog, savvy?

Captain Jack Sparrow, explain or deny all you want, it has no effect on my world. I simply can't help but remain offended when you consistently launch an anonymous, public and personal attack on someone's moral -- not political -- behavior. It's just not right.

Also, I still find it entertaining that while you and Zuma were busy discussing my real life ID on this blog (really, who -- besides you -- cares?!), I was not downtown "solving small problems" -- but at home, drywalling my garage.

That's where your "credibility dinghy" sprang a major leak for me, O Captain...

A shame that the college degree you lay claim to (ad nauseum) did not include humility in the curriculum.

Or didn't you know that arrogance is the mortal sin of politicos and corporate execs alike?

Good afternoon Mr. Hoff (tips hat):

Consistently? I think not. Be offended all you want, for I care not. The fact that you have an opinion different than mine matters not for that, if you will, is the whole point of democracy to begin with. (Steps aside to let Bard by) And just to show my own good faith, I'll let my Bard sing a song for you. You Yanks might know this little ditty as "Old Dan Tucker", savvy?

Old Jack Hoff was a blogging man.
Spends his time with a spackle can.
Problems small he solves them not.
Alas, poor man is just a sot.

Cease your wailing, blubbering and bawling...
Old Jack Hoff is busy dry-walling.
While waiting for the spackle to dry..
Old Jack Hoff goes blogging by.....

Old Jack Hoff got plenty mad
Over something the Captain said.
Put down trowel and spackle can
And defended Susana, pure young maid.

Cease your wailing, blubbering and bawling...
Old Jack Hoff is busy dry-walling.
While waiting for the spackle to dry..
Old Jack Hoff goes blogging by.....

Captain Jack just rolled his eyes
drank some rum and swatted flies.
But Old Jack Hoff wouldn't let it rest.
Said it didn't pass the creditability test...

Cease your wailing, blubbering and bawling...
Old Jack Hoff is busy dry-walling.
While waiting for the spackle to dry..
Old Jack Hoff goes blogging by.....

Captain said "Give over, man.
Pick up your trowel and spackling can.
Next time you rip the Dogg to shreds,
I'll remind you of what you said."

Cease your wailing, blubbering and bawling...
Old Jack Hoff is busy dry-walling.
While waiting for the spackle to dry..
Old Jack Hoff goes blogging by.....

So Old Jack Hoff went back to his garage.
Not too happy with political umbrage.
And if you want to raise his hackles...

Cease your wailing, blubbering and bawling...
Old Jack Hoff is busy dry-walling.
While waiting for the spackle to dry..
Old Jack Hoff goes blogging by.....

(Jack and crew applaud Bard; turns to speak to Jack Hoff) Sorry old man, but we couldn't find anything that rhymes with "pink bismuth," savvy?

Good evening Captain Sparrow (nods):

Tell your Bard that was nicely done. But you might want to send the spackle cans to the office of Mr. Blackman who as we understand is busy patching up holes left by his own hand. On second thought, send the cans to his aide-de-camp as the sot doesn't like to get his hands dirty.

By your leave, Captain Sparrow.

Captain Jack Sparrow, I was so impressed with your effort -- excellent work for an amateur -- I thought I would return the favor.

I wanted to be sure to do something you'd be familiar with, so this little ditty is from "The Sound of Music."

(Sung to the tune of "My Favorite Things")

Bows with a flourish (Are those lady’s panties?)
Look on his iPod, it’s corny sea shanties
Drones endlessly ‘bout his Ivy League school
Why is this Captain Jack Sparrow uncool?

Talks of the islands and winds that are balmy
Drinks only light beer and lives with his mommy
Makes $40K and he thinks that it’s great
No wonder Captain Jack can’t get a date!

Spends his days just
Reading In Touch
Playing tiddlywinks
And plotting and gossiping,
Oy, what a mess!
We can’t wait til his ship sinks!

Good morning Mr. Hoff (Tips hat):

Very nice work indeed! However, I, if you will, went to Bond and later on to Oxford. It's the others in the crew that did their post grad in the US, savvy?

(Narrows eyes and stares hard at Jack Hoff)
Are you saying that Bond does not offer an excellent education, sirrah? Are you taking liberties and besmirching the reputation of an excellent academic institution? Are you taking the good name and reputation of noted scholars and dragging it through the mud?

(Rolls eyes) Oh no, of course not. You of sterling reputation would NEVER do that. I am, if you will, offended when you consistently launch an anonymous, public and personal attacks on an institution's academic -- not political -- behavior. It's just not right.

(Mutters under breath) Offensive sot. Probably has spackle on the brain.

Aye, Captain - methinks Sir Jack doth not have spackle on his brain! Methinks he mistook the spackle fer sparkle, an' thinketh his brain doth shew brillance!

Sir Jack, mayhap we trade barbs a bit later? The end o' the week just past hath been a busy time fer the likes of me, assisting in loading all of me ships' cannon with grape to clear the decks o' those who doth seek to oppose both mine fleet, an' them o' whom we be allied.
