Cedillo talks on Pleitez and conspiracies...............

Lets get it over with.

Gorda, please come to the front and sing one last song for the political aspirations of Gilbert "One Bill Gil" Cedillo.

If anyone out in the confines of California Congressional District 32, still thought that someday, they would be refering to Gil Cedillo as "Congressman One Bill Gil", then put down the "doobie" and inhale reality.

First, Cedillo send out this repugnant mailer attacking the character of Emanuel Pleitez, forgetting that the likes of Mario Beltran and David Galaviz, people of dubious character, were once employed by him.

Then in the recent days, he says this on a local radio show, as reported on the "Calitics Web Site" by David Dayen.

SOLIS MARICH: So, you don't think that using pictures of a person at a party where they were basically doing what many people of all different ages do, enjoying themselves...
CEDILLO: Dancing on tables and using gang signs that he published on his Facebook, we think, first of all, one, we do not romanticize gangs or gang violence. He and I grew up in the same neighborhood...
SOLIS MARICH: Senator, let me just correct something, before you go down that path, maybe your staff hasn't told you but he was actually...the quote unqute gang signs...he was actually at a Voto Latino event...
CEDILLO: I know where he was, I know where he was.
SOLIS MARICH: ...and he was standing next to a very very respected actress and Latina activist Rosario Dawson who was actually with him making the same signs. So, are you accusing Rosario Dawson of using gang signs?
CEDILLO: I'm saying that that's inappropriate, I find it inappropriate...
SOLIS MARICH: For both him and Rosario Dawson?
CEDILLO: Yes. I find it inappropriate, I find it offensive. I don't romanticize that one bit...
But it gets even better, Cedillo starts seeing images of Parke Skelton and Eric Hacopian, sitting in the back yard of Skelton"s enclave, on a private street above CD1/14, conspiring on his demise, as this exchange highlights.
SOLIS MARICH: There was some controversy over the past 2 weeks when your campaign decided to do a negative attack piece on newcomer Emanuel Pleitez. Many people who observe campaigns including myself took that as a sign that the young candidate was really eating into your base.
CEDILLO: Well, one we're not sure we'd call it negative unless he calls it negative, the fact that he posted these photos on his Facebook.
Two, we recognize what his roll is in this campaign, to suppress the vote and to try to take away votes and we think the electorate has the right to know all the information, information that he's made public, about the candidates. We put the record out there and let people decide if they want to elect someone who has 25 years of effective leadership or if they want to elect somebody who they may not have full confidence in.
Lets not dismiss Cedillo assertions outright, as anything is possible when Skelton and Hacopian are involve in a campaign with a third party. I for one, felt that way in the beginning of this campaign.
But candidates will do stupid things when not under proper guidence and especially when they lack core principles,.......like Gil Cedillo.
........and how is the voting community in CA-32 responding to Cedillo and his gutter tactics ??
I can only imagine that Cedillo is concerned with the fact that a prominent, intelligent and highly respected young professional is mobilizing the people in his community. Pleitez is an example of the talent that is hidden in our neighborhoods, in our inner city schools and in our culture. Don't knock him, support him. The problem with Cedillo is that he is out of touch and does not understand that a new generation of leaders are emerging. Tell me my kid is going to attend Stanford, tell me my kid is going to work at Goldman, Sachs and then tell me my son will work with an incoming President of the United States. As a father of two young boys, I can only hope for that. That is success, that is the definition of a proper role model for the community. Sit down old man, you are the definition of a politician and the community needs leaders.
Your thoughts.........
**BTW, we hear that a mailer is making the rounds in CA-32, which call in to question Cedillo's actions during his SEIU 660 days. Please send a copy to redspotincd14@yahoo.com .

This campaign is dunb and offends young people. However, if you're going to run for office you have to face the reality that you're held to a higher standard so don't put stuff on your Facebook you don't want EVERYOHE to know.

Same goes for average students too, like if they're applying to colleges but have pictures of themselves drinking illegally or something stupid they can't be surprised if it hurts them when admissions officers see the stuff. Admissions officers sometimes look up a student who's too close to call and there's been stuff in the papers lately about this. Some girls and guys even post nude pictures of themselves when they're way under-age. Dumb dumb and dumber.

If this is a wakeup call to young people tht just because the medium is there you shouldn't abuse it, good.

But I hate Gil Cedillo's politics, anyway. Being the champion of the illegals is not what we need right now. What else has he done besides run up an expense account?

This race is also a test of whether ethnic identity politics trumps character. I don't know Judy Chu but being Asian in a predominantly Latino district shouldn't be her downfall. If whites and Asians are discriminated against for race alone, why should we vote for Latinos or blacks? Unless Chu is more for Asians than anyone else, I say give her a chance.

The problem with One Bill Gil is that behind every stumbling block he encounters he envisions the hand of Antonio Villaraigosa.

To some extent, he may be right, because, well, payback's a bitch.

However, Gil has consistantly been arrogant and isolated from his constituents for years; he is the hardest member of the California Legislature to get a one on one meeting with. He is brooding, standoffish and aloof.

Gil, stop blaming Antonio for all your losses; you are starting to seem like Obama blaming Bush for everything.

Man Up!!

Forget about the kid, he's no challenge; Judy is beating on you like a drum!!!

Not much time left, go be a man.

Just saw an internal e-mail from Gil's campaign.

There are spinning a story that is to run in the LAT on Tuesday.

The story breaks down the Skelton-Hacopian relationship. It has:

1- Photos and time and places where they have met over the past two weeks.

2- Their on going partnership in a few business they own together.

3- What Hacopian is supposed to get for this latest black opps project. (contract for AV's governors race)

4- The role that Maria Elena had in putting together the Pleitez campaign.
