Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Machine for Friday

The laugh was short for "re-indicted" CD 2/7 City Councilman Richard AlarCON.
Hola on this pre Cinco de Mayo TGIF, but before we move on to the likes of AlarCON and other topics, we like your answer to this LAUSD-like multiple choice question . "What was the origin of our annual celebration of Cinco de Mayo"? A.) A creation of Dos Equis's "Most Interesting Man in the World". B.) Some battle the French lost on the Plains of Puebla in the early 1860's  C.) Collaboration of former CD 14 City Councilman Art Snyder and Mission Distributors to promote Mexican heritage at Lincoln Park D.) The date of the Mexican-American version of Woodstock at Lincoln Park with the likes of Carlos Santana, Tierra, War, El Chicano, Tower of Power and Los Lobos performing. (** before the homies started throwing blows) E.) All of the above.
Back to the CD 2/7 City Councilman Richard AlarCON, roaming the cyber pages of Facebook last evening, we came across numerous discussions on the dismissal, then re-indictment of the long time public servant. But one intriguing angle on the dismissal of charges against AlarCON centers around the judge Kathleen Kennedy and a possible CD 14 connection. We are being very sensitive in not putting out information that is not based on fact, but we did take time yesterday to discuss some possible background with the District Attorney Office of Public Integrity, more later if warranted. But one can bet another Councilman Huizar California Public Records Act violation that Judge Kennedy will have nothing to do with the second AlarCON Trial.

** Well, well it is nice to know that a "125+ year Old Gray Hag on Spring Street" can still attract a sugar daddy and a rich elitist one at that. It seems that the "Overlord of the Elite Los Angeles Insider Community" Eli Broad wants to squire and buy the former "fishwrap of record".

** Quick Higby, get me the bloggin defib paddles!! The "Aunt Esther" of South LA Journalism and the admirer of "Little Short Guy" City Clowncil Central Committee Chairperson Herb "Mini Amin" Wesson Betty Pleasant has some commentary on LAPD treatment of the elderly and surprise, no mention of CD 8 City Councilman Bernard Parks.

** In the spirit of openness and friendship, we would like make CD 14's "Princeton Graduate Dear Charro" Councilman Jose Huizar aware of this Saturday Class at the University of South Central on Ethics and Transparency in Government. Just think of the opportunities to regaling the politicos from cities of Walnut, Montebello, West Hollywood on your educational exploits at Princeton (and how you almost got away with having the taxpayers pay for your reunion) and selflessly offer yourself as a teachable moment on how to stonewall on California Public Records Act. Plus, you can bring along the latest duo in political outreach, Samuel In and Gustavo Valdivia to "role play" various scenarios regarding ethics in contracting and inspections within public government.          

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

It might also be worth noting that it was this same judge, Kathleen Kennedy, that threw out charges against two corrupt Bell Councilpeople...

I've been hearing... Brad Sherman is planning to run for CD3 against Bob Blumenfield for revenge?
Is this happening or not?
The other rumor is sherman is going to get one of his staffers, Dababneh (who lives in Sherman Oaks) or Tou, to run.
Any validity to these?

Everyone knows Blumenfield is running for the seat.

But if sherman is already putting word out that he's running, does this mean 1. his family will move to CA from DC? 2. does this mean the writing on the wall is coming in clear, he won't beat Berman?
