No One Can Really Tell The Truth Like John Walsh
A clearly befuddled LA City Council President Herb Wesson on Friday (4/19) asked something of the members of Public, who were serving as viewers/potential eyewitnesses and acting as observers of the City Council cut-ups presented that day on Channel 35 video cameras.
That something that Herb asked the Public yesterday was the ultra-odd query: “What color am I?”
See for yourself a very, very weary Wesson whose main goal at the meeting seemed to be frankly currying favor with his Bossman Eric Garcetti, who was making one of his increasingly rare visits to an LA Council meeting. This time Eric’s mission was to exploit the scheduled Armenian and Jewish Holocaust Presentations taking place for his own incredibly ambitious Mayoral campaign purposes!
It is quite painfully obvious that Herb believes Eric Garcetti is fated to succeed Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa; and Mr. Wesson doesn’t want to waste any of his semi-precious time and energy breaking in a brand new set of Monica Lewinsky kneepads on the next Mayor!
See the official city document below where Herb automatically grants Eric Garcetti “another batch of excusal requests”! That’s a pass from Boy Herb to Master Eric allowing Tricky Ricky to go AWOL for every City Council meeting jammed into the merry month of March, 2013!
Please read this self-same municipal document below that allows Eric to campaign uninterruptedly for Mayor Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays rather than plopping his ass down in his own Council Chamber seat to do his extremely well paid duty and serve as an LA City Councilman!
Of course, Garcetti The Younger, in clear violation of the Los Angeles City Charter, is still getting paid his full salary of $180 thousand yearly whether or not he shows up at City Hall to do his damn job or not!
Wesson just loves to employ his “black sheep” son, Justin, to do all his Council dirty work for him!
Justin Wesson serves as one of Herb’s deputies despite the fact that his only qualification for the job is the DNA that he shares with Big Daddy Herb!
Justin will have a helluva time finding another high-paying after this one job, considering that Herb’s Pride and Joy has an arrest record for drunk driving that is currently hanging ominously over his head!
Later at the same Friday meeting, an attempted vote to banish John Walsh from the City Council meeting, ostensibly for being disruptive, failed miserably for lack of a second!
This attempt at banishment by Super-Lobbyist Harvey Englander’s little nephew Mitch failed miserably with zero support …. Not even accomplishing its true objective of intimidation of the particular member of the Public speaking at the podium at that time … who, in reaction, insolently refused to cave into this City Council bullying tactic while bowing to all of the remaining LA City Council rules and regulations that are hamstringing Public Participation!
