Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Friday

"Private Citizen/ The Villar Greuel's Campaign Consultant" John Shallman laughable attempt to spin City Councilman Eric Garcetti's fundraising advantage.  
The mental process of crafting campaign spin can be an expensive proposition for "Private Citizen/ Political Consultant" John Shallman clients.

** Great Friday to all as the first true campaign week wraps up with the latest campaign finance reports becoming public via the City of Los Angeles Ethics Commission Website. Front and center in the local media coverage, are the reported contributions in the mayor’s race. CD 13 City Councilman Eric Garcetti has about a $200,000 advantage over City Controller Wendy “The Villar Greuel”. This fact prompted the following spin from “The Villar Greuel’s” campaign mastermind “Private Citizen/ Political Consultant” John Shallman.

"We expected Councilman Garcetti would be much higher than this given the fact that he held the City's purse strings as President of the Council. Other than being the incumbent Mayor, there is probably no better job to leverage donors."

Just a laughable (and likely an expensive) example of political bull via the “Private Citizen/ Political Consultant”.

** Let this be a teachable moment on what happens when a former republican from CD 15 and the latest “Spring Street RINO” incarnation from CD 12, attempt to push another expensive public works bond upon an overtaxed electorate. They get send back to the City Clowncil Central Committee Strongman Herb “Mini Amin” Wesson’s backroom/ wood shed to refine their sales pitch after provoking the collective ire of the neighborhood councils.

** Ron Kaye and Jack Humphreville offer up their respective commentary on the Buscaino/ Englander $4.5 Billion Street Tax Fiasco. A recommendation for the duo would encompass using the same monetary amount as a benchmark in pension savings, to offset the projective cost of this inflated gift to the organize labor community.

** The “Child Actress formerly known as Zelda” is seeking to become LA County Board of Supervisor Member Sheila Kuehl. If Kuehl joins former President Barack “H” Obama Labor Secretary Hilda Solis on the board in 2014, kiss fiscal restraint goodbye.

** Today ought to be a special one for CD 1 City Councilman Ed Reyes as he celebrates his last birthday as a City Council member. We extend best wishes.

** Stay tune for "Notes on the Contribution Scorecard" later today weekend.

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