Breaking News!! Assemblyman Raul Bocanegra TERMINATES Re-Election Campaign

The vacating 39th AD Assemblyman Raul Bocanegra.
** Blogger's Notes: In Breaking News (with NO apologies to CD-6 City Council person Nury "The Denier" Martinez), 39th AD Assemblyman Raul Bocanegra announced this morning, the TERMINATION of his re-election efforts ........., and timing will be of paramount interest to many. 
Any chances that Councilperson Martinez's husband Gerry Guzman could garner some future supplemental campaign work from his Day Job Boss, went out the door in a Turkey Trot, ahead of a Los Angeles Time Exclusive which details an additional SIX WOMEN, targeting "Pervynegra" with allegations of Sexual Harassment/Inappropriate Conduct ........, and Councilperson Martinez may NOT be happy with what Gerry knew or not (allegedly).

Yolanda Anguiano, who worked as a field representative in Fuentes’ office from 2007 until 2010, said (Jennifer) Borobia told her at the time about Bocanegra’s repeated overtures and how they made her uncomfortable. Eventually Anguiano approached Gerardo Guzman, the district office director, who also is Martinez’s husband. “I went to his office. I sat in front of him and I said, ‘This has to stop, Raul is harassing Jennifer and I’m sick and tired of it,’” Anguiano said. She said he seemed to take her concerns seriously and asked her what he could do. Anguiano said Guzman told her she could go to the Assembly Rules Committee and file a report. Anguiano opted not to, fearing negative consequences for her political career. Now 35 and living in Los Angeles, she said she filed a report with the committee earlier this month outlining the complaints she heard from Borobia during her time in the office. Guzman denied Anguiano’s account. He told The Times in an email that “no staff person came to me with complaints about Mr. Bocanegra's behavior.”

Either Gerry was in denial .........., but he SURELY remember his Birthday Party excesses (or not). 

It was early summer 2012 and about eight people who worked in Fuentes’ district office attended a celebratory lunch for Guzman’s birthday at Octopus in Burbank. Alcohol was flowing freely. Camille Pili-Jose was feeling uneasy about how much her co-workers were drinking during work hours. Her nervousness grew, she said, as the group decamped to Guzman’s house in San Fernando to continue to socialize. Bocanegra at the time was running to succeed Fuentes in the state Assembly, a race he would win that November. Pili-Jose, who from 2011 through 2012 worked in the local community as a field representative for Fuentes, said her colleagues were taking shots of Tanqueray gin and encouraged her to join in. Bocanegra was standing to her side. After some resistance, she raised a full shot glass to her lips. Just as she was about to drink, she said, Bocanegra laid his hand on the front of her stomach. She said she was so shocked by the unexpected touch, she spit out the gin. Pili-Jose, now 30, told a friend at the time about what happened. The friend confirmed Pili-Jose’s description of the incident.

...... and Nury, did Gerry ever tell you about this incident involving your NOW Staffer?

Another Fuentes staffer said she also had an unwanted encounter with Bocanegra in the summer of 2012, soon after he had come in first in the June 5 primary. The woman, who asked to be identified by only her first name, Heather, said the incident occurred after an all-staff lunch with lots of alcohol. The group moved to Guzman’s house to continue partying. Heather said she was standing in the kitchen speaking to a co-worker when Bocanegra came up behind her and ran his hands down her neck and along the sides of her breasts before grabbing her backside with both hands. She said the incident was witnessed by her male co-worker, who is now a staffer for Martinez. He did not respond to multiple requests for comment.
