Has "Private Citizen/ Political Consultant" John Shallman retain a White Collar Criminal Defense Attorney?

A Mayor Sam Exclusive regarding the speculation on the possibility that "Private Citizen/ Politcal Consultant" John Shallman, has retain White Collar Legal Defense Counsel for future litigation. 
We speculate on what supposed future litigation is taxing the mind of "Private Citizen/ Political Consultant John Shallman?

** Blogger's note: Mayor Sam was the recipient of the following email which we will label as unverified. But in conversations with other city attorney and mayoral campaign staffs, we can state that the speculation behind the email has not been dismissed or disputed---Scott Johnson. 

It can be confirmed (** not by Mayor Sam for the record) that "Public Citizen/ Campaign Consultant: John Shallman has retained White Collar Criminal Defense Attorney Andrew Cowan to represent him.  In Los Angeles Superior Court case #BC492835, Criminal Defense Attorney Andrew Cowan with the downtown Los Angeles firm Gallo, LLP has bee retained to represent John Shallman.  Why would Shallman need a Criminal Defense Attorney? Maybe it has something to do with the Kindee Durkee matter?  When Ms. Durkee was sentenced to eight years in Federal Prison on November 28, 2012 , the United States Attorney in Sacramento, Benjamin Wagner commented to the Orange County Register after the hearing "The investigation is not over. More charges could be filed."

We invite City Attorney Candidate Assemblyman Mike Feuer, Mayoral Candidate City Controller Wendy Greuel and their Campaign Consultant John Shallman, to verify or deny the content of the email.

Your thoughts ..............
Scott Johnson in CD 14

John Shallmn is smart to have a criminal defense attorney. A good attorney could mitigate the charges and lower any sentence.

No worries. As soon as Mike Fuher wins he will get the charges dimissed against Shallman.

Shallman, Greuel, Fuher. They're all part of one big cartel. Watch your wallets.

Morons. Andrew Cowan is one of Shallman's closest friends. He worked in the U.S. Attorney's office with his brother Dan Shallman. Probably suing Nuch pro bono. Nice try though.

Scott, I realize that this concept is foreign to someone who doesnt have a nickel to his name, but successful people usually know many attorneys and having one on retainer is a common sense thing when you have a CAREER.

Hey Higby, did you ever sue Gatto for claiming you got paid off by Hacopian?

You should do the right thing and take this post down. Have you a single ounce of honor and decency? This is scurrilous, baseless innuendo designed only to smear. It says more about you than it does about the person you're trying to smear.

True, he's not saying anything anyone is talking about, other than a group of bitter Nuch cronies.
