Why Is L.A. City Councilman TONY CARDENAS Soliciting Money for A "Legal Defense Fund" (Among Other Things)

[Pictured: Practicing for his mug shot? He DOES have a legal defense fund? Wonder what he's defending? Probably just a parking ticket, now that the "Gold Card" program has been cancelled.]

Damn, can't believe the NERVE and SHAMELESSNESS of some people. Saw this on The City Maven blog about Tony Cardenas.

On June 9, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Cardenas will meet with constituents who bring in money for his campaign, legal defense and officerholder accounts.

“I invite you to stop by, spend a little one-on-one time with me and bring a few checks,” Cardenas said in the email message, which was sent out from the office of his fundraiser.

The councilman will be on furlough from City Hall that day, according to his spokeswoman.

“If you have already given to one or all three committees, you can still help by asking a friend, colleague or spouse to give. I know it sounds like a lot to ask, but it needs to be done and your help with one or all three accounts would be much appreciated,” Cardenas said in his email.

In addition to one-on-one time with Cardenas, donors will have their parking validated. [ZD: The validated parking pisses me off more than the rest!!! Still have to pay the parking lot attendants!]

I don't think I've seen any other elected official game the system the way this guy does. Good luck whatever it is your legally defending. Kinda hard to guess, specifically, what it could be cause so many shady, corrupt, illegal things come to mind.

Here's the link to his legal defense fund filing.
