John Shallman's pledge to save us from "Kim Jong Il Trutanich"

"Private Citizen/Political Consultant" John Shallman comments on his "sincere exit memo" to Carmen Trutanich
How much can I charge you for this political thought?
The "Private Citizen/Political Consultant" John Shallman has gone on the record, regarding his supposed, sincere Exit Memo to former District Attorney Candidate/Client Carmen Trutanich and boy, its a hoot ...... if not delusional.
LA Weekly's Gene Maddaus picks up on our exclusive disclosure of the John Shallman's Exit Memo to Nuch and for someone that was sighted in the memo, as being one of the three scribes that help defeat the current City Attorney, Shallman had no inhibitions in espousing his thoughts, about his past work on behalf of his former client (** we post commentary in bold).

I apologize to the City of Los Angeles for Carmen Trutanich. (How noble .... and profitable it was for you) I feel like Dr. Frankenstein ( you need an ego check Shallman) who, in his attempt to do good, created a monster (how much did "Dr. Shallman" charge for this creation?) and unleashed it on an unsuspecting populace, a monster who has morphed into the Kim Jong-Il of L.A. politics (compare to the alleged "Bernie Madoff of LA  Political Consulting"?). This monster uses the law as a weapon--not a tool. (OK) He cracks down on peaceful protesters and street artists (that comment reeks like Occupy LA). He bullies and threatens cancer patients seeking relief( how about some relief from your alleged high prices john?) from medical marijuana--rather than using that energy to go after violent gang members as he promised me (so pretentious John!) and the citizens of Los Angeles. The fact is, Trutanich believes normal societal rules do not apply to him (nor do normal campaign fees apply to Shallman's work, allegedly). ** (He's dangerous, delusional and must be stopped. I helped create this mess and now it's my responsibility to clean it up. The memo was my first attempt at doing so, but obviously it won't be my last) = thoughts about yourself John?.

...... I think Webster's is redefining the meaning of "delusional", by incorporating this photo definition
But the reality is that there are some within the "Private Citizen/Political Consultant" John Shallman's fraternity of fellow consultants, who have reservations about Shallman's business ethics as this comment points out .........
“I don’t want to pass judgment on a fellow consultant, but I simply cannot imagine myself sending a memo like that to a client. “It is shocking how little responsibility Shallman is willing to take for what went wrong, opting to attack his candidate’s alleged shortcomings instead. “It also shows a lot of arrogance on his part to plan out his client’s big life and career decisions for him in such an impersonal and presumptuous way.  As political consultants, we are supposed to provide a path to victory for our clients, not pretend to be king-makers.”. 

....... or exercise "delusions of consulting grandeur", for an over-inflated fee, allegedly.

Your thoughts .................

Staying true to yourself.

What is this obsession Mayor Sam seems to have with John Shallman? As you can probably see, no one is commenting on this yet you keep reporting him to be Satan incarnate even though you seem to be the only one who cares.

When are you going to return to the stories that made Mayor Sam such a wonderful site to read? You tease us with the Huizzy/Monica connection to Semillas and again with the Zev reference, but then run back to Shallman.

C'mon Sam, get back to what made you Da Man in this city. Focus on stuff that matters, local pols who are abusing the system.

Like Huizzy and Monica, and Tru.

Mayor Sam is onto something big. History will show they were the first to break a big, important story simiiar to how the Ceretos paper broke the Bell story and the John Noguez story.

The other Shallman controversy shoe is yet to drop.

What? That a campaign hack acted like a hack? Who cares?

When I come to Mayor Sam, I come here because of interesting stories about electeds who cross the line and need to be reeled back in.

When a blog gets so wonky that they become obsessed by sideshow Bob it may be time to move on.

Where was Mayor Sam's reporting on Rosendahl waiting until there was virtually no time left for anyone other than his hand picked successor to enter a race when he calls it quits. Maybe it was a realization that the cancer is worse than thought, but the timing....and the way he threw most of the clowncil under the bus in his exit speech....This I had to read in the Green Sheet?

Tell me that wasn't a Mayor Sam story. But right now Sam is too obsessed with Shallman and is missing out on the really good stuff going on.

Time to refocus or risk losing relevance.
