Alarcon's CD 7: District of Haters?

Richard Alarcon's constituents voted overwhelmingly that little old lady lesbians like these can't get married.
The County of LA provides results on various election races by Council District within various cities.  I've pulled and recorded the votes for and against Proposition 8, the measure that bans same-sex marriage in California that has apparently passed with 52% of the vote statewide.

It appears that in most Council Districts the measure failed, hence supporting marriage equity, with the largest number of no votes in CD5.  On the other hand the measure passed in CDS 1, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 15 with Richard Alarcon's District 7 contributing a whopping 60% of yes votes to end the rights of gay families, a margin greater than that the statewide vote.

Hell yes, a district of haters, but it's because the leadership is one of LA's greatest haters of all time.

Alarcon is a corrupt, racist SOB who preys on the fear of people who are unsecure in either their fiscal situation, citizenship, or personal safety. If you are a constituent that he cannot rule by fear, you are an enemy and you are marginalized by the Alarcon machine.

His "godfather" act has been his MO for decades, and he hasn't missed a step with being out of LA for a term or two. An OLD politician conduucting business as usual while the people badly need just, modern, and ethical representation.

Richard Alarcon is the worst thing that could and can happen to CD 7. It's hard to blame people when the leadership is as filty as this.

Well, I dunno, man! This blog is so full of confused liberals(?). All I can say is that it is incredibly ironic that the most liberal member of the City Council (as he describes himself) CM Alarcon, is also the councilmember of the most conservative districts (described by Blogspot loons as "district of haters").

1 quick technical question and 1 quick comment:

First, did you get the voting data by district? I would like to do a similar analysis, but I can only find county-wide data.

Second, I do hope that in this Barack Obama Era folks will finally quit talking and writing about African and Latino Americans collectively. You so-called libertarian guys supposedly see the world as mashup of individuals. There is no "Black Community" or "Chicano Community" in Los Angeles. There are about 3 million highly opinionated, brawling individuals.

I live in Bernard Parks' City Council District 8. Most folks here are very generous and very progressive. Unfortunately, the leadership (all Clintonesque Democrats) suck. I mean, when was the last time these guys ever took the leadership on anything?

I know folks are hurt and divided over Prop 8, but a 52% statewide "Yes" vote is not a big mandate. All we need is some new leadership and a lot of this "Culture War" crap can be put behind us.
