The sad plight of "Victimcrat" Assemblyman Gil Cedillo

" Victimcrat and career politician Gil Cedillo, hard at work in Sacramento"
** Disclaimer: This post on the plight of Victimcrat Gil Cedillo is likely to cause the following among Cedillonistas. Those in union jobs, will grab the nearest union credit card and shop in solidarity with former SEIU 660 Leader Gil Cedillo. Most (including the likes of indicted Larry "Nativo" Lopez), will support of his next predictable attempt to give driver licenses to illegal aliens, in his last hurrah as Assemblyman Gil Cedillo. Some may recite the conspiracy theory how Parke Skelton and Eric Hacopian worked secretly to keep him from becoming "Congressman One Bill Gil". But all will remain mum on the fact that Cedillo sports around in a $50,000+ Lexus Sport Utility Vehicle. Gosh, life is tough!!
Soon to be on file with the State of Cailfornia's "Victim Compensation and Government Claims Board" (Pause, while I resist the urge to puke), From the LA Times, Gil Cedillo, a Los Angeles Democrat who was just elected to the Assembly after being termed out of the Senate, has filed a claim against the state on behalf of all state legislators alleging that the 18% cut in pay and benefits ordered by the California Citizens Compensation Commission was illegal. The pay cut reduced the salaries for legislators from $116,208 to $95,291 effective Dec. 7, 2009, and reduced other compensation, including per diem expenses and car allowances. (Hey Gil, what no DVD player in the Lexus? No wine per diem like what Nunez was allowed? So sad!)
One can agree that Cedillo's filing is audacious, considering the current state economic crisis that the likes of Cedillo, help to create in his years in Sacramento. But Cedillo must have gone tone deaf recently, to be so incredulous in going forward with this PR disaster. Great job Gil!! Maybe your old staffer Ed Headington can work pro bono to rehabilitate your image?
But then why waste the time? For in two years, Cedillo will leave the state payroll and seek gainful employment elsewhere. Mayby CD 1? Does MALDEF need a spokesperson? Will Nativo be in jail and thus, create an opening at the Mexican American Political Association (MAPA), for someone to champion the continuing cause of voter fraud? The options await in 2013.
Meanwhile, as Cedillo nears the January 3, 2011 start date of his last term as Assemblyman, many of us in his district will wonder if Cedillo is more concern about retrieving back pay for peddling one bill in his time in Sacramento, than caring that most, if not all within his district, are victims of his lack of positive action in Sacramento?
Someone may want to start handing out the political victim forms to his constituents?

Is it just me or was I someone who lives in that Assembly district robbed of competence as our rep? Kevin de Leon goes off to some other post and some guys in a restaurant figure out who can "have" the seat. Perhaps this column could rank the state reps by 1. competence, 2. what have they done to deserve to be there, and 3. could almost anyone else do a better job.

Evidenced by 1 comment in four hours, it's safe to say "noone" cares.

At $95K, that's still 2 to 2.5 times the average household income in his district.

Has anyone seen this guy in person? He has tattoo'd on eye liner under his eyes and looks like he just walked out of a bar in West Hollywood.

His look is enough to make you cry or scare you to death.
