Zuma called me his ghost writer in a previous post. Though he agreed that he would not have said things like I posted them, he also agreed that for the most part were in his heart.
Okay today I sent him a very small amount of money....and then I called him and asked if he had receipt. He confirmed that and was most appreciative, but at the same time telling me that he would save it until tomorrow as he thought that he could get one more night on the streets without totally crashing.
My words to him were (after telling him a loud Zuma voice to shut up and listen), get the room tonight, you do not need to crash and then have to recover from doing that to yourself. The money I gave him only will cover a "we no tell" motel. Not the Ritz Carlton in LA that is scheduled to open.
YOU GUYS maybe need to pay attention. He is not seeking big bucks to survive, only us little people with little bucks. It was my payday today, so I could make a personal
donation. And you? Where are you at? I would hate to think that the majority of the readers on his blog are politicians who want to see him fail. I know that I am not.

Via the LA Times: "Los Angeles County prosecutors have declined to file charges against a former high-ranking Los Angeles city official who was under police investigation for allegedly raping a woman at his downtown condominium, authorities said. Andrew Adelman, former general manager of the Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety, was placed on administrative leave in August by Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa when the allegation became public. Several weeks ago, Adelman tendered his resignation." More via the Times' Andrew Blankstein.
Police on Thursday arrested James Tyrell Harris, a South Los Angeles community activist and previously convicted felon, on suspicion of misappropriating $85,000 in city funds while serving as chairman of his neighborhood council.
L.A.'s district attorney warned medical-marijuana dispensaries they are "on notice."
Los Angeles County Dist. Atty. Steve Cooley said Thursday he will prosecute medical marijuana dispensaries for over-the-counter sales, targeting a practice that has become commonplace under an initiative approved by California voters more than a decade ago.

Did the Los Angeles County sheriff's department break the law by obtaining and poring over the phone records of TMZ editor Harvey Levin, looking for evidence that a deputy leaked Mel Gibson's arrest file? Media groups say yes, the department says no. "That's illegal," Lucy Dalglish, an attorney and executive director of the Virginia-based Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, told the L.A. Times. "Most law enforcement agencies know it's illegal . . . or have a hard time getting a judge signing off on it." Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore says a judge did sign off on it, after a prosecutor said it was OK: "What we did we believe was legal." Ah, but there's more in the story:
Legal experts said the California Constitution protects journalists from being forced to reveal their sources.
State law, they said, also bars judges from issuing search warrants for unpublished information that is gathered by reporters....
She noted that Dist. Atty. Steve Cooley has a written policy on search warrants, which says they "cannot be used to obtain the source of any news information."
"He feels strongly about not infringing upon a reporter's rights," Gibbons said.
No charges were filed against a deputy involved in the Gibson case who was found to have made calls to Levin.
