Ya know, I can bang my head against the sidewalk typing hundreds upon thousands of words, detailing all of the reasons Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaragiosa cannot be allowed to advance to Governor of California in the 2010 election; attend hundreds of City Council meetings exposing the fraud, waste and abuse (corruption and racketeering) as broadcast over and over on TV; call into radio; and all the other related "alerting the masses" Zuma Dogg has been doing; along with every radio talk show host and insightful articles by news journalists and reporters...
But NOTHING just put the "kabash" on his chances for advancing his racket North to Sacramento as quickly than this one, simple picture and one single word.

AND, by the time this pension scandal ("Pensiongate") gets rolling, now that Julio Ramirez has plead guilty to security exchange fraud in what is descirbed by New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo as "money laundering" relating to transactions involving Dan Weinstein of Wetherly Capital and Hank Morris (who was arrested over these Pensiongate matters) we may see the Attorney General turn over the cast of city hall players the way Lorne Michaels turned over Saturday Night Live cast members in that bad 80's era after Eddie Murphy.
ALL THE CLUES, LEADS, NAMES AND FLAT-OUT TIES HAVE ALREADY BEEN BLOGGED, HERE, AT LA DAILY BLOG.com and if you REALLY want to become an expert and try and wrap your brain around the expansive scheme involving a few small circles of political financially elite that pull the strings of the puppets inside L.A. City Hall and elsewhere around country and are the ones responsible for having them drive L.A. into bankruptcy.
As I type this, expect to see Darius Anderson of Yuciapa and his pal Ron Burkle (formerly of the same firm and Ralph's Grocery store mogul), Ari Swiller (formerly of Yuciapa and currently pals with Villaraigosa) C.R.A. (Community Redevelopment Agency) Board Chairman William H. Jackson (long-time Wetherly attorney and managing partner "messer getter outter") who was appointed by Mr. Antonio Villaraigosa in 2005, along with Wetherly Capital's Richard Ziman & Dan Wetherly (of Jack Weiss Fundraiser Fame), Louis Moret; and many others may all add up to the biggest mayoral showdown in history between Zuma Dogg and Eric Garcetti in much less than four years from now, and NOT because Antonio will be Governor.
And if the New York Attorney General is going after L.A. business, don't you think California Attorney General Jerry Brown, who may in fact be running for Governor himself may look, or may already be looking into a situation that may CERTAINLY knock one of his (formerly) strongest competitiors (Antonio) out of the arena?
CHECK BACK TODAY FOR MORE AS I TRY AND GO THROUGH ALL THE COMMENTS AND MEMOS I HAVE AND TURN IT INTO A MORE READABLE STORY THAT CONNECTS SOME OF IT FOR YOU. BUT, check out the comment sections anyway, of all the related threads on this blog, because besided ZD, some other insightful and inside folks are sifting through an avalanche of internet information and posting the related and most relevant stuff.
AND REMEMBER, not to get political here, but you happen to have an opportunity to REALLY make sure you pull the plug on this racket THIS TUESDAY MAY 19th, as you can vote for Carmen Trutanich for City Attorney, instead of Jack Weiss, who held one fundraiser at Wetherly Capital's Ziman's HOME with Dan Weinstein as host; another fundraiser held by a convicted felon; and STILL has not returned the laundered drug money he raised from some other folks.
THIS GUY JACK WEISS IS RUNNING FOR CITY ATTORNEY AND HERE ARE THREE EXAMPLES OF ILLEGAL FUNDRAISING AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL!!! TOO BAD AL CAPONE ISN'T AVAILABLE!!! AND LOOK WHO IS PUSHING HARDEST TO BACK JACK WEISS...
It's Wetherly Capital, hot on the heels of one of their guys pleading "guilty" to what is described as money laundering with Wetherly, the firm tied to the pension commissioners who just lost $7 BILLION in L.A. City pension money in one year in risky "non-investment grade" investments, that will most likely bankrupt the city in a couple years, that may tie to Ron Burkle and shill financial capital firms that were really money laudering rackers, just like Zuma Dogg has been screaming about all along.
So I've been right about that, and I'm right that you cannot allow the guy having fund raisers held in their homes to become the next city attorney to not only try and keep it covered up, but perpetuate it.
AND URGENT WARNING: GET OUT THE WORD TO SHOW UP AT THE POLLS, ANY POLL, EVEN IF THEY HAVE TO VOTE "PROVISIONAL" TO VOTE FOR CARMEN TRUTANICH!
Tell them to look for "City Attorney" on the ballot and remember "True" for Trutanich!
This is not about just about the future of one City Attorney office (although a big and powerful office, of course), but the future of the entire city, and in this case entire state, in what I believe would become a crippling situation for the city under Weiss.
The more I see, the more I think this one's going all the way to the mayor's office and jack weiss is in the getaway car. Put up the spike strip this Tuesday.
