A Mid-Day Brief on a "Proclamation for Smear Scheme (allegedly)" via the "Brian Hews/Los Chacon News"

In lieu of the recent "Brian Hews/Los Chacon News Exclusive" that targets longtime Democratic Staffer/Operative Trent Hager's alleged links to the infamous Ashley Madison Website, we ponder whether the Chief Propagandist of the ethically-challenged Chacon Political Family, was engaging in a "Payback Smear" on behalf of Assemblyman Mike Gatto, Gambling Interests .............., and a certain Central Basin Water District Director?
The namesake Chief Propagandist of the "Brian Hews/Los Chacon News".
The Hews Media Group Proclamation-awarding Assemblyman Mike Gatto. 
** Blogger's Note:  AFTERNOON UDATE: Sources tell Mayor Sam that Gambling Interests are gloating over the Hager Hit Piece in the "Brian Hews/Los Chacon News" and are hinting that this was done in response to Assemblyman Adam Grey's AB 2863 Legislation regarding Online Poker----S.J. 
Regular, longtime readers of this blog will surely be familiar with our past musings regarding the political evolution of a formerly, "Stay at Mom's Infant Assemblyman", now soon to be Termed-out Sacramento Legislator Mike Gatto ........., and his cyber-bloggin Gatto Truther Loyalists.  
Yet admittedly , we were remiss in reporting an Official Act/Proclamation in 2013, honoring a former Award-winning, Weekly of Record, authored by the former Silver Lake (or Canyon Drive) residing 43rd Assembly District Officeholder as we excerpt below. 

“HMG-CN’s investigative work revealed a previously unprecedented level of corruption leading to the arrest at least one official now facing 60 felony counts, while reminding other public officials that they are not above the law, and their detailed work and dedication to uphold the law demonstrated the power of investigative journalism and restored faith in disenfranchised members of the public by holding public officials accountable and ensuring an informed populace,” the resolution stated. The Resolution also proclaims: “HMG-CN provided the much-needed voice for the American people and reminded us all that we are responsible for ensuring that our rights are not misrepresented, misconstrued, or taken advantage of.”

Surely, longtime Democratic Operative/Sacramento Staffer Trent Hager would agree with the latter. (and BOLDed part) of the statement, excerpted above, as he faces the repercussions of being the subject matter of another "Exclusive", originating from the keyboard of a supposed, award-winning journalist, as noted below.

A Hews Media Group-Community News exclusive investigation has found that Trent Hager, Chief of Staff to Senator Cathleen Galgiani (D-Stockton CA) and now Adam Gray (D-Merced), paid to contact escorts on the Ashley Madison adultery website and did most of the illicit work while on state time. Hager earns a hefty $141,408 per year according to the Senate.ca.gov website and is married to Janelle Beland, who works for Governor Jerry Brown.

In reviewing the shallow content of this supposed exclusive, we have to question why Brian Hews keyboarded the outing of a Democratic Staffer, who is listed as being the current and former Chief of Staff to Central California-based Officeholders, which would be of nominal interest to his normal readership?

That answer may be predicated in what is now a Propaganda Smear Fishwrap, compare to a former Weekly Newspaper of Record, that was once lauded by for its Investigated Journalism in 2013.

In noting the work history of Hager, Publisher/Editor/Writer/now Propagandist Brian Hews, omitted the FACT that Hager was ALSO the Chief of Staff to former Assemblyman Anthony Portantino, who is the Democratic Candidate for the vacant 25th State Senate District .............., a political office, much-coveted by Termed-out Assemblyman Mike Gatto (a noted antagonist of Portantino).

Thus, its very conceivable that Hews was again, engaging in yet another Act of Journalistic Malpractice, in which the now, "Brian Hews/Los Chacon News", is known for (and paid for in ads or proclamations) in Southeast Los Angeles County.

** There is also speculation that the Hager Hit Piece, also had a link to his former work for past political opponents of current Central Basin Water District Director (and former Assemblyman) Phillip Hawkins .........., who is allied with Art Chacon.

Mayor Sam Exclusive:The LA-32 NC/Empower LA Staff Attempted to Cover-Up Open Meeting Rules Violation

In a Mayor Sam Exclusive, we have obtained an Email that shows Empower LA Staff Member Thomas Soong, allowing the recent August Meeting of the LA-32 Neighborhood Council to go forward ..........., despite a violation of the department's Agenda Posting Policies ......., without sharing the information to all LA-32 Stateholders. 
 LA-32 Neighborhood Council President Jennifer Markewych ....., and volunteer Training Facilitator for Mayor Eric Garcetti's Crisis Management Team via its Facebook Page.
DONE/Empower LA Employee Thomas Soong via Department's Webpage.
** Blogger's Note: The Mayor Sam Blog has exclusively obtain an Email that shows Empower LA Staff Member Thomas Soong allowing the August Meeting of the LA-32 Neighborhood Council to move forward, DESPITE a violation of department's Agenda Posting Policies. In his response to the LA-32 NC's Executive Committee, Soong places the BLAME for the violation on the NC's Website Operator Arron DeVandry, who he also cited as being responsible for not posting on time, the June 28th Meeting of the NC's Public Safety Committee, then Chaired by Board Member Anthony Mansano. We should note FOR THE RECORD, that Board Member Manzano was removed as the Public Safety Committee Chairperson by NC President Jen Markewych, in a subjective, punitive response to the Agenda Posting Violation, during the July Meeting of the General Board. The fact that this email EXONERATES Board Member Manzano for any fault regarding the Agenda Posting Violation, has not been addressed by President Markewych, who has been targeted for criticism regarding her subjective condemnation of Board Member Manzano's "alleged behavior" ............, while in reality, its the conduct of President Markewych and Empower LA Staff that merits further investigation, for multiple acts of subjective misconduct----Scott Johnson.  
Dear LA32 Executive Committee,It was brought to our attention that the August board meeting agenda was not posted on your website with the Brown Act 72 hours requirement. Just to be clear, not posting on the website is not a violation of the Brown Act but is a violation of the Neighborhood Council Agenda Posting Policy. The agenda was posted properly at the physical posting location and therefore, Brown Act compliant. Per the Agenda Posting Policy, Neighborhood Councils are also asked to send the agendas to us at NC Support to be put on the Early Notification System. This was done within the Brown Act time frame. The issue at hand is that the agenda did not get posted on the website in time. This same situation also happened with your June 28th Public Safety meeting in which the chair did send the agenda to the webmaster and it was not posted on time. Because there is proof that the webmaster did receive the request to post before 72 hours, you can go forward with the meeting tomorrow night. But we do ask that you make every effort for all future board, special, and committee meetings to be posted per the Brown Act requirements or else future meetings not posted on your website in the needed time frame will be deemed a violation of the Neighborhood Council Agenda Posting Policy. In order for this not to happen again, the board may want to re-visit who gets to post agendas on the website. Also, your webmaster Aaron DeVandry is no longer a City Vendor and should not be used for website services. Our Department can work with you to identify another City approved website vendor. Let me know if you have any questions. Feel free to share with the board.Thanks! Thomas Soong Project Coordinator - Leadership Development Strategist

Again, objective interpretation of Empower LA Policies is an afterthought when enabling
"The Political Chosen Ones" of the current incarnation of the LA-32 NC.

A Friday Felipe FU Finery From Foothill

A creative bit of Artistic Political Expression, targeting out-going CD 7 City Clowncilman Felipe "Pollo FUentes", brings renewed focus to a community discontent with its supposed City Hall representative ............., and upcoming 2017 Campaign to choose his replacement.
The Finery of Creative Political Expression along Foothill in Sunland-Tujunga.
** Blogger's Note: Quick Bloggin Disclaimer .....,......., we don't condone unlawful acts of damaging public property (normally) ........., BUT, whoever was responsible for the Creative Altering of resigning CD-7 City Clowncilman Felipe "Pollo FU-entes" Field Office Sign, next to the North Valley City Hall in Sunland-Tujunga, deserves a Joselito's Margarita. Bluntly, "Pollo FU-entes" and his cohorts within the Northeast San Fernando Valley Democratic Machine, have carried out a greater, corrupting misdeed in vandalizing the Public Trust of the Stakeholders they allegedly represent ......., and that is why the Grass-Roots Push Back has ........., and NEEDS to become more pronounced in assuring TRUE community-based representation come 2017 (re-electing Assemblywoman Patty Lopez in November, would also help). That stated, we would like to remind the multitudes of aspiring candidates seeking to replace "Pollo FU-entes", that this finery in Creative Political Expression, should serve as a WARNING (especially the old-school media-anointed "top-tier" candidates), that most objective voters have the same, expressive level of disdain for those associated with the respective, self-serving Establishment Machines ........., which will surely be bloggin paramount in disclosing, as we move onward with our 2017 CD-7 Campaign postings----Scott Johnson.

According to sources, trollin, chismosos y chismosas, have been spreading rumors of the pending demise of our late friend Michael Higby's cyber creation .........., and to that we say BULLPOOPY!!

In a follow-up to a Mayor Sam Exclusive, we can report that a "Battery Complaint" has been filed against LA-32 Neighborhood Council Board Member Keith Survillas, in response to his verbal and physical actions, targeting retired, Law Enforcement Officer Caroline Aguirre.
LA-32 NC Board Member Keith Survillas.
** Blogger's Notes: Its Official!! LA-32 Neighborhood Council Board Member Keith Survillas has achieved a dubious distinction, with the LAPD FILING of a Battery Complaint against him for his verbal and physical actions, targeting retired, Law Enforcement Officer Carolyn Aguirre, as previously reported here on Mayor Sam. 
Survillas, who is a Human Resources Director ........... and close friend of new LA-32 NC President Jen Markewch, has in his short time on the NC Board, has CLEARLY become the supposed-community body's BAD BOY in targeting fellow Board Members and Stakeholders, who's opinions run counter to the dictates of its Hillary Clinton-supporting presiding officer.
With the formality of the FILING of the BATTERY COMPLAINT now having been initiated, LA-32 NC Stakeholders should request that President Markewych remove Survillas from his Director Position on the NC's Public Safety Committee.
Meanwhile in Northeast LA, the target of Survillas verbal and physical accosting, along with volunteers via the Northeast Division CPAB, BLEND Organization, community NC Board Members and many others .........., were dedicating many hours in posting thousands of Blue Ribbons in support of Law Enforcement----Scott Johnson.

 City of Los Angeles Board of Public Works Commission Vice-President Monica Rodriguez ends speculation .........., by making reality, her intentions to join the CROWDED field of candidates, seeking to replace current CD 7 City Councilman Felipe Fuentes in 2017. 
 Will Rodriguez recycle her graphics from a previous CD 7 Campaign?
** Blogger's Note: After months of speculation, matched by numerous public appearances representing her paid position on the Board of Public Works, Commission Vice-President Monica Rodriguez has pulled campaign papers, created website, established Twitter Account ........, and begun fundraising for another run to become the CD 7 City Councilperson. Rodriguez who was defeated by now former "CD 2/7 City Councilman Richard AlarCON" in 2007, will have to resign her Board of Public Works position and quickly start raising campaign money, as exampled by now fellow candidate (and CD 2 City Councilman Paul Krekorian Staffer) Karo Torossian, who has raised over $100,000 according to the Ethics Commission. Sources tell Mayor Sam that many within the CROWDED field of candidates seeking to replace out-going councilman Felipe Fuentes, will be marketing themselves at this weekend's 54th Annual Watermelon Festival in Lake View Terrace ........., which may prompt a Mayor Sam Field Trip----Scott Johnson.

A Momentary Bloggin Episode in Deconstructing Factually-challenged Comments via Mayor Garcetti and the LA Times

With no apologies to the likes of Mayor Eric Garcetti and "The Old Gray Collectivist Hag on Spring Street (aka LA Times)", your bias, subjective attempts to misrepresent yesterday's Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump's "Second Amendment Comment (and other verbal utterances)", cannot whitewash the 2008 Wife of Impeached President Bill Clinton's  "Robert F. Kennedy Assassination Comment" ......., and Joe Biden's "Shotguns and Beretta Joke" directed at, now President Barack Obama.   
The "Local Democratic Machine Fishwrap of Record" and Mayor Eric Garcetti.
** Blogger's Note: We interrupt a Mayor Eric Garcetti-led delegation to the 2016 South of the Equator Olympics (and the LA Times reporting of), to bring our cyber-audience a "Bloggin Teachable Moment" on the pratfalls of engaging in factually-challenged, partisan presidential politics in the Age of the Internet. 
Of course, after yesterday's substance-devoid, outrage over the Second Amendment Rights comments via the New York Billionaire, the Rhodes Scholar, turned multi-ethnic politico with national office aspirations, would be remiss if he did not join in the Main Stream Media-led (with the LA Time's aiding and abetting), context-lacking Pinata Party, targeting the Republican Nominee. 
But as we document below, Mayor Garcetti and the LA Political Machine's "Fishwrap PR Contractor of Record", cannot gloss over the TRUTH of a "certain 2008 Democratic Candidate (and current 2016 Democrat Presidential Nominee), who cited the 1968 Los Angeles Ambassador Hotel Assassination of Senator Robert F. Kennedy, in rebutting calls to drop out before the California Primary, against now President Barack Obama. 
But more telling in outing the Double Standard of those who found insinuations of violence and malice, lurking between the syllables of Candidate Trump's remarks, is the video below of now Vice-President Joe Biden's "Shotguns and Beretta Joke" directed at his then, running mate Barack Obama.
In the Spirit of Objectively ........., and in educating those trapped in a bias, subjective mind set, we have posted all three videos for your open-minded review below----Scott Johnson.

Noting the Passing of Education Advocate Scott Folsom

The Crusade for True Education Reform within the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) has lost a Great Advocate with the Passing of Northeast LA and PTA Activist Scott Folsom, who lost a two-year battle with Cancer at the Age of 69.
From LAUSD: Scott Folsom thanking audience for Standing Ovation as he receives the first-ever Board President Award for Service in March of 2016.
** Blogger's Note: Please pardon us momentarily as we step away from our normal impersonal bloggin mannerism ........, to extend heartfelt prayers and condolences to the Family of longtime Education Advocate Scott Folsom, who lost a two-year battle with cancer at 69
The Mt. Washington resident began his educational crusade as a PTA member at his neighborhood-namesake (and daughter Alana's) elementary school, laying the foundation for a decades-commitment to improving parent involvement (via his California PTSA leadership), supporting teachers (as noted in the LA Times) and ceaselessly advocating for program to improve the student environment within LAUSD (via his long tenure on the district's Bond Oversight Committee). 
As the accolades and tributes for Folsom continue on Social Media, we would be bloggin remiss if we did not note the under-appreciated comedic qualities of Folsom, that regular readers of his great "4LAKIDs Blog" became accustomed to. 
During the 2013 LAUSD Elections, both Folsom and this blogger readily found the comedic value of then re-elected Board Member Monica "La Gorda" Garcia's "Dream Big Billboard (LOL!! the motivation for her "Gorda Boo Boo Moniker"), while also taking note of the adverse, ethical ramifications of her "FREE", pre-election exposure.

The Mt. Washington Homeowners Alliance Facebook Page has posted the following regarding a gathering to celebrate the life of Scott Folsom.

IN REMEMBRANCE OF SCOTT FOLSOM Please join Scott’s family and friends in remembering and celebrating his life at Mt. Washington Elementary’s Multipurpose Room on August 27th, 2016 at 2pm 2981 San Rafael Avenue Los Angeles, CA 90065

ITS OFFICIAL!! Former LA Failure Mayor ......, Now Most Likely 2018 California Governor Candidate Antonio "Villargovea"

On this August 7, 2016 afternoon, the Mayor Sam Blog can report that a certain "Ex. Two-Term, LA Failure Mayor" has officially become the VERY possible 2018 California Gubernatorial Candidate Antonio "VILLARGOVEA", as he joins in a Parke Skelton-choreographed (allegedly) Matrimony with now, wife Patricia Govea.
The now Mr. and Mrs. Antonio Villargovea from their Mexico Wedding Saturday.
** Blogger's Note: ITS OFFICIAL!! The alleged Parke Skelton-crafted political reincarnation of a former City Terrace Homie named "Tony", recently known as former LA Failure Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa .........., is now the VERY possible 2018 California Gubernatorial Candidate Antonio "Villargovea", as he and Fiance Patricia Govea, become Husband (with straying proclivities) and Wife (to market to the traditional Latino y Latina voter base) in a Mexico Ceremony yesterday.
We want to extend our tongue-in-cheek congratulations to longtime Tony/Antonio/now Villargovea Political Consultant Parke Skelton, as his latest attempt to "freshen" the tarnished "Failure Mayor" image of the City Terrance native, takes a big political-branding step forward.
But being the bloggin cynics were noted for, we cannot help ourselves in pondering whether the new "VILLARGOVEA" union will bring about true change within the inner-character (LOL!!) of a notorious narcissus, who's uncontrollable, self-cravings (especially for Telebimbos), makes him a political long shot in any attempt to win a higher office----Scott Johnson.

A Mayor Sam Response to Email Legal Threats via LA-32 NC Board Member Keith Survillas

On this Morning After our Mayor Sam Exclusive regarding LA-32 Neighborhood Council Board Member Keith Survillas "Physical and Verbal Accosting" of a Retire, Female Law Enforcement Officer, we have receive two emails from Board Member Survillas ............, which we post (and respond to) below.
LA-32 NC Board Member Keith Survillas.
** Blogger's Note: Great Saturday Morning to everyone in our cyber audience as we take time this morning to endeavor in the bloggin exercise of granting the subject our yesterday's Mayor Sam Exclusive, LA-32 NC Board Member Keith Survillas, an opportunity to keyboard a response/rebuttal/retort to our FACT-BASED missive ..........., and he did, in two emails which we post below.
First Email received at 2:31 PM on Friday:
What a joke- I suggest you take this down before my attorney does. Thanks Scott! Keith
Second Email received at 2:36 PM on Friday:
Hi Scott
Our First Amendment is a wonderful thing but there are limits. I ask that you take that false and defamatory post down or I will pursue legal avenues. None of us have time for these games. I trust that the city will be involved if your post isn't removed by the end of the day today.

We would normally take the bloggin opportunity to grant the trained Human Resources Director (and aspiring Trump-like Republican Officeholder) an expansive response to his claims and legal threats cited in the emails (** BTW Board Member Survillas, you can link here to our posted response regarding a previous "Cease and Desist Request" from a LA-32 located entity ........, that also suffices as our official retort to your legal threats, wink, wink), but this being a Saturday, we offer these short, concise comments.

First Board Member Survillas, you DO have a constitutional right to confront a retired, Female Law Enforcement Officer (who is also a Widow of a LAPD Homicide Detective) and call her "An Embarrassment to Law Enforcement (which multiple witnesses heard you do)".

Second Board Member Survillas, you DO NOT have the right to make physical contact (as witness by multiple people and noted to Empower LA Staff Member Thomas Soong), under the California Penal Code for Battery, when verbally-accosting and denigrating a longtime LA-32 Stakeholder.

Third Board Member Survillas, we STRONGLY recommend that you retain Legal Counsel.

With respects,
Scott Johnson
Editor/Chief Writer

** BTW Board Member Survillas, we can state, FOR THE RECORD, that the person you accosted is moving forward in filing a FORMAL COMPLAINT.

Mayor Sam Exclusive: LA-32 Neighborhood Council Member Will Likely Face Assault/Battery Charges after Accosting Retired Female Law Enforcement Officer During Board Meeting

In yet another embarrassing blow to the embattled LA-32 Neighborhood Council (and Empower LA), Board Member Keith Survillas will likely face Formal Battery/Assault Charges for his, Physical and Verbal Actions, targeting Retired, Female Law Enforcement Officer Caroline Aguirre ........, which included verbally-berating her as  "An Embarrassment to Law Enforcement".
Photo via Empower LA Website: LA-32 NC Board Member Keith Survillas.
 ** Blogger's Note: Saturday Morning Update: Keith Survillas has sent us two emails which we will post in an Update to our Mayor Sam Exclusive shortly----S.J. The Mayor Sam Blog is exclusively reporting that LA-32 Neighborhood Council Board Member Keith Survillas, will likely have a Formal Assault/Battery Complaint filed against him, in response to his physical and verbal actions, targeting Retired, Female Law Enforcement Officer Caroline Aguirre, during last Wednesday's General Board Meeting at the El Sereno Senior Center.
Survillas, who is a Human Resources Director for the Ivy Bridge Group, along with being a recent, non-qualifying, Republican Candidate for the 51st Assembly District County Committee, was observed by multiple witnesses, leaving his seat during a verbal exchange between the twenty-plus years, retire veteran of the California State Parole Department and LA-32 NC President (and noted Hillary Clinton supporter) Jennifer Markewych ..........., proceed over to Officer Aguirre's location in the audience, where he made physical contact, then verbally- berated the Widow of a LAPD Homicide Detective, by calling her "AN EMBARRASSMENT TO LAW ENFORCEMENT". 

President Markewych, who is a Volunteer Trainer for Mayor Eric Garcetti's Crisis Response Team (as pictured below), made no effort to inquire why Survillas was leaving his seat ............, or ask her fellow Illinois-transplant, about the nature of his actions directed at Officer Aguirre.

Former Parole Agent Aguirre is a well-known Ethical, Objective Law Enforcement Advocate,in not only Northeast LA, but state-wide. In addition, she has been attributed by numerous media outlets, for her fact-based commentary regarding AB-109, Prop 47, Corrupting in the State Parole/Penal System ........, and the current dysfunctional administration of embattled Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck.
Yet many do not know the Caroline Aguirre, a Mother of a US Supreme Court-attributed College Professor, who has donated countless of hours (and money) to various causes, including most recently, an effort to place Blue Ribbons, honoring Law Enforcement, on every tree lining the Colorado, Blvd., Eagle Rock Blvd. and other major streets in Northeast LA.
We will keyboard an update on this Breaking Story in the near future.

Notes (with videos) on the Dis-unified, Hypocritical 2016 DNC Convention Proceedings

As supporters of Vermont Socialist/Red Senator Bernie Sanders put a BERN to Democratic Party Unity in the wake of the Democrat National Committee Emails Controversy, we bloggin bring you the usual details of Hypocrisy via the supposed Political Party of Inclusive Tolerance (NAUGHT!!) from its "walled-off" 2016 Convention. 
Soon to be FORMER Democrat Party Chairwoman (now Hillary Campaign Staffer) Debbie "Blabbermouth-Schultz's "heckled-exit" from the Convention proceedings.
** Blogger's Note: It was only Day One of the 2016 Democrat National Convention .........., and thanks to a most-timely LEAK of internal Democrat National Committee (DNC) Emails by an alleged (LMAO!!) Trump/Russian Cabal of Hackers, the American Populace, along with the ardent supporters of Vermont Socialist/Red Senator Bernie Sanders, were reminded again of the inner-hypocritical/bias operating structure of a supposed Political Party of Inclusive Tolerance. We have endeavor below to bring our cyber audience the best Hypocritical Highlights (rooted in showcasing LA and California's Political Machine contributions to the theatrics) ........., and with tonight's showcasing of grieving parents of those murdered by alleged, Killer Cops (with no mentioned of ISIS), the bloggin fodder of content will require daily updating----Scott Johnson (BTW, good riddance to "Debbie BS" as noted above). 
Wife of Bill Clinton Press Secretary Brian Fallon feeling the BERN.
** While the DNC wants their Low Information Voter Base to fixate on the alleged Russian/Trump Campaign Cabal of Cyber Hackers ........, instead of feigning accountability for the content exposed within the emails, supporters of Senator Sanders were putting the BERN to the Wife of Bill Clinton's Press Secretary Brian Fallon as the RAGE of the RIGGED Primary Elections, spilled over within the Convention Hall with chants of LOCK HER UP!!
California State Senate President Pro Tem Kevin De Leon the First espousing the DNC's "Latino Taco Bowl Engagement".
** Various members of the "Greece on the Pacific's (formerly a Golden State) One Party Political Machine" were granted brief speaking spots before the enraged, divided Convention attendees  Speakers of note included 2018 Governor Candidate Gavin Newson (who's speech is garnering some plagiarism push back, again) ..........., and self-styled Political Royalty via State Senate President Kevin De Leon the First. President Pro Tem Kevin De Leon the First highlighted the state's One Party Machine's inclusive approach in supporting (ILLEGAL) Immigration, while exampling the DNC's Latino Taco Bowl Engagement Campaign. 
The DNC Convention Wall separating the Party-chosen Elites and Commoners.
** We ponder how the likes of President Pro Tem Kevin De Leon the First and other DNC Latino/Latina Speakers felt about espousing support for the Wife of Bill Clinton via attacks on the alleged racist proclivities of Republican Presidential Nominee ..............., from behind a "Blue Wall" separating the elites from the commoners. But then the likes of President Pro Tem Kevin De Leon the First are use to having "walls of non-accountability" between them and discerning investigators of their political conduct.
Comedian and Bernie Sanders Supporter Sarah Silverman in Black Face.
** The Political Party of Jim Crow, Andrew Jackson, Robert "KKK" Byrd, George Wallace ........, and the Wife of Bill Clinton, still has an tolerance for those who engage in the repugnant, racist thespian role playing of the Black Face, as exampled by Bernie Sanders Supporter Sarah Silverman. Silverman garnered some negative push back last evening for calling out the non-Wife of Bill Clinton supporters of the BERN, ........., as being ridiculous  
Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders speaking to California Delegation yesterday.
** Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders made a surprise visit to the California Delegation at the DNC Convention, garnering a positive reception from the delegates, who earlier vented on the likes of Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi ..........., and REALLY DUMPING ON Secretary of State Alex Padilla.

TGIF Briefs on the Los Angeles (and Beyond) Political Machine

The demise of a once productive Board of Neighborhood Commissioners (BONC), is now OFFICIAL, with Sunland-Tujunga's Lydia Grant submitting her resignation, as the Bureaucracy of Empower LA becomes more politically subjective in its unequal implementation and dispensation of Neighborhood Council oversight.
Former Board of Neighborhood Commissioner (BONC) Lydia Grant (in center).
** A once inclusive, intuitive, discerning, productive Commission (with TWO Public Comment periods per meeting) ............, is in dire need of Mayoral resuscitation with the resignation of Sunland-Tujunga's Commissioner Lydia Grant.  
Grant, who was part of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti's superb appointments to the Commission that formed a bridge with Neighborhood Council Activists, only to be stonewalled by a politically-subjective (and understaffed) Empower LA Bureaucracy .........., with legal guidance from its assigned Deputy City Attorneys that blunted needed policy changes.
Lydia was the spark plug, the instigator on the Board. To say that the City Attorneys probably did a happy dance on Monday night is an understatement. While President Len Shaffer seems to believe that the BONC’s primary duty is to make City Hall happy, Lydia questioned almost everything. She was there to serve her stakeholders and made a point of visiting all of the NCs in her area during the month. She also spent time with other neighborhood councils whose representatives were not so committed. I always wanted to clone Lydia. I may not have agreed with everything she said or proposed, but I saw her as an ideal volunteer -- prepared to give her nights, weekends and hours of phone time trying to make her eighteen NCs function better. I don't blame her for quitting. However, the NC system has lost one of its most powerful supporters. 
Indeed, the Resignation of Commissioner Grant is a major blow for a NC System trending towards an irrelevant, neutered political tomorrow.

** If you are part of a small, minute few discerning political observers pondering what happen to the Corruption Trial of former Los Angeles County Assessor John Noguez ..........., his pending Appointment with Justice, has been delayed again (to October).  

While the excuse for public consumption regarding the FOUR YEAR DELAY in initiating Trial Proceedings, is Noguez's changing Legal Council, speculation is that the LA County District Attorney's Public Integrity Division, has been reigned back from pursuing corrupting probes ......., especially against Democratic Officeholders.

The Husband (and tax-dodging half, allegedly) of the Encino-residing Political Consulting Duo of John and Lani Shallman, has announced the hiring of Lluvia Carrasco, who is the Daughter of longtime Client and current "California State Senate President Pro Tem Kevin De Leon the First".

MAYOR SAM EXCLUSIVE!! Did City of Commerce Councilman Hugo Argumedo Commit Perjury?

In a Mayor Sam Exclusive, we present documentation that City of Commerce City Councilman Hugo Argumedo, may have committed PERJURY in falsely disclosing $8,000 in Campaign Consulting Payments to "Leading Edge (Building) Consulting", which merits a Formal District Attorney/FPPC Investigation.

** Blogger's Note: In a Mayor Sam Blog Exclusive, we present documentation that controversial City of Commerce Councilman (and member of the infamous Southeast LA County Chacon Political Family) Hugo Argumedo, may have committed PERJURY in falsely stating "Billings for Campaign Consulting Services" by a "Leading Edge Consulting".
Councilman Argumedo, who was recently re-elected to the Commerce City Council after his force removal from Office in 2010 ........., for pleading GUILTY TO SIGNING A FALSE STATEMENT in a Civil Lawsuit involving former City Attorney Francisco Leal, submitted the pictured documentation below, regarding alleged Campaign Expenditures for Consulting Services.
From Page 10 of 14 from Councilman Argumedo's 460 Report Forms for the period between January 14-February 14, 2015 
Councilman Argumedo listed two $4,000 payments, totaling $8,000 in Campaign Consulting Services Expenditures as being paid to Leading Edge Consulting, located at 5057 N. Washington Blvd. Los Angeles, California, 90017. In reviewing all of Councilman Argumedo's 2015 Campaign Reports Forms, obtained under a California Public Records Act, we were also able to ascertain that the half-brother to Fernando, Art and Hector Chacon, loaned his successful campaign $20,000.
The Mayor Sam Blog, in researching the supposed "Political Consulting Background" of the Washington Blvd (near Baldwin Hills) LLC, made contact with its Managing Partner Andy Rhoades, who provided us with the following Statement on the LLC's Letterhead for this Exclusive ........., and any resulting, "Formal Investigations", as noted below. 
Letter of Response to a Mayor Sam Blog Inquiry from Leading Edge Consulting Managing Partner Andy Rhoades. 
From Rhoade's response to the Mayor Sam Blog;
We have never received any type of payment from Councilman Argumedo or performed any work for him or his campaign. Please feel free to present this information to the City Council of the City of Commerce and to also present this information to the Los Angeles District Attorney on our behalf. We are happy to provide you with any other information.

As Mayor Sam reported in two recent other Exclusives, the City of Commerce received approval from California Attorney General Kamala Harris to initiate "In Quo Warrento Proceedings" against Councilman Argumedo, which is currently moving forward in Superior Court.

We will provide updates, with comments from pertinent Public Officials as we continue presenting further details.
