Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Wednesday

 Meet the "Lil Tony" in me if you dare.
Mayor Villar, Pat McOsker and the LAFD Rank and File are not going to silence themselves.
Now the City Council knows the obvious.
If anyone has learned anything about the former "Tony Villar of City Terrace" in six-plus years as Mayor Antonoio Villaraigosa, don't "present contrary political witness" to the political facade refined daily by the  Mayor's image/ media team.
For United Firefighters of Los Angeles City (UFLAC) President Pat McOsker, this means that someone from the mayor's staff hinted strongly to mute his attacks on Mayor Villar's Fire Chief Brian Cumming's crafted (and much-maligned) response times stats to 911 calls.
Pat McOsker, like his brothers Tim, Mike and John, know well what its like to be on the receiving end of a "Team Villar" attack after years of association with the Hahn Family. Many local political observers including myself,  feel that the LAFD "brownouts" and follow-up service cut backs originated from the bad blood between Team Villar towards the McOskers.
... and judging from the mess that Mayor Villar has mired Los Angeles in for six-plus years, the McOskers can feel proud about their past endeavors. 
Your thoughts ..............
