Outtakes from CD 14: Bloggin responses to Councilman Huizar's Victory
In the end, Martinez got crushed in the voting. He leaves the race poorer, with his reputation in tatters, and the political world is abuzz regarding the real reason Martinez was propped up to run, and why people goaded this dupe into running such a nasty campaign. Hint: it has to do with another Councilmember's citywide ambitions. Major post to come on this theme.
Hmmm, who could be this "other" City of Los Angeles City Councilman? Could it be that someone well known to Mayor Sam readers is back scheming in the political shadows?
More bloggin speculation and observations on CD 14 latest election cycle after the jump.
It seems that someone had "Gattoish visions" of Eric Hacopian somehow duping or enticing Rudy Martinez to spend $200,000 dollars of his own money to politically "tar and feather" Councilman Huizar, so his chances of running for City Attorney would become nil. Thus, CD 2 City Councilman Paul Krekorian would have one less opponent in 2013, that's if he even runs for the office. Tin foil hat stuff indeed!
Back to salient observations on the election past, Tony Butka at his NELA Lives Blog found something to treasure in this latest election cycle. "Of course I personally will always treasure that brand new bicycle rack on York Blvd as a testament to the hard work and good deeds of Mr. Huizar. If only someone will use it…"
The Eagle Rock Patch which distinguish itself with its objective reporting during the just concluded proceedings, had this quote from Councilman Huizar as he celebrated his re-election. "My opponent said he's revitalized York Boulevard?" Huizar said. "All he did was replace an old bar with a new bar," referring to the Martinez-owner Marty's bar on York Boulevard in Highland Park. I guess Marty's will not be hosting any swearing-in ceremonies in 2011.
