Let's call this "Measure B" Solar Energy BOND, the Solar Energy BONDoggle!
From Ron Kaye (RonKayeLA.com):
Everyone. Please be aware that the mayor's lawyer has dragged Jack Humphreville, me (Ron Kaye) and others who signed the "No on Prop. B" ballot argument into to court today, challenging our statements.
This is being done even as the L.A. Times reveals today that a critical report exposing this solar energy plan as costly and "extremely risky" was being kept secret from City Council members and the public even as the measure was being rushed to the ballot.
The mayor's lawyer, Stephen Kaufman, representing Mitchell Schwarz of the League of Conservation Voters, is demanding opponents pay court costs and legal fees when we don't even have a lawyer. Stay tuned.
ZD's Reply: Oh my goodness. Congratulations, I guess, on their petty, vindictivness, once again.
Oh man, is this gonna garner MEASURE B (Solar Energy Bondoggle) EVEN MORE bad publicity on top of the LA Times article.
What a bunch of A-holes, if "The People" are stuck with the court costs. I can only hope, cause again...EVEN MORE bad publicity, making them look vindictive and retalitory.
NOW, some people will be scared to write a ballot argument. We need a "Special Order 40" type law, now, that will prevent them from being able to stick ballot argument writers with court fees. (LOL!)
IT APPEARS AS THOUGH "MEASURE B" (Solar Energy Bondoggle) IS THE SHADIEST THING ON THE BALLOT THAT ZD HAS SEEN. I'VE NEVER SEEN THIS MUCH BAD PR, FRESH OUT OF THE GATE, AS "MEASURE B" (Solar Energy Boondoggle) HAS GENERATED, SO QUICKLY. (See also: Eric Garcetti, Wendy Greuel.)
