Make it All Go Away!

“It’s the right thing to do,” [LAT]

Sure, but maybe not the right thing to say after you get caught.

Nice if you could have done “the right thing” in the first place.

Sure, nobody would have know what a swell guy he was, brimming with personal integrity and all, but it would have spared him the spotlight of public scrutiny he, and his wife, are undergoing right now.

BTW, she sounds like a real peach.

“that he periodically allowed his wife Michelle to drive his city-owned GMC Yukon — a possible violation of city rules.”

“Michelle Delgadillo, 36, had a suspended driver’s license when she drove the city vehicle.”

“In 2004, she damaged the SUV by backing into a pole in a parking lot near her doctor’s office.” Hmmm, Doctor? Say what?

“The city attorney had the Yukon repaired at city expense.”

“Michelle Delgadillo also had a previous run-in with the law for driving without a valid driver’s license, car registration or insurance in 1998.”

BTW, the city we paid to repair the damage caused by Michelle Delgadillo to the city-owned our vehicle.

Now it has come to our attention that Rocky has been using various staff members as his personal handy men, day care providers, and go-fers.

The first two roles might require a license and payment for services rendered.

I guess we’ve be picking up the tab for all of that too. (Baby sitting? I wonder what Michelle does all day- buff her nails? Does she have a job? Someone, please tell me she is gainfully employed, and not a budget item on Rocky’s county expense account.)

What’s next for the wife, after ‘probation’… “rehab?” I hear it’s all the rage, that it’s a great public relations tool (rehabilitation of image, if not the underlying “issues”), and you come out of it all fixed, like nothing was ever wrong in the first place. Ready for a fresh start.

If that transpires, odds are we’ll be picking up the tab for that too.

So, after he was caught in the end Rocky decided the right thing to do was to go ahead and pay for the repair. He didn’t have to deal with an insurance company, didn’t have to shop around for the best quote, didn’t have to rent a car for a week while it got fixed.

He wrote a check. Three years later. And it’s all better now.

No it’s not. This has been an embarrasment not just for him, but to the public he “serves.” Like an episode of Leave it to Beaver, Rocky, in the role of “the Beav,” gets to learn a lesson about honesty an integrity.

Isn’t this a little late in life for our Rocky? He is an adult, it was presumed. The good people of Los Angeles wouldn’t knowingly elect a man-child who covers up his bad behavior like an embarrased ten-year-old.

He should at least learn to act like an adult. Here’s a suggestion: be a man and resign FFS. He can put this whole embarrassing episode behind him, and get on with his life.

Forget about being governor for the time being.

Grab one of those high-paying “consulting” jobs in the private sector that he probably has been cultivating during his tenure in the public sector.

YKIMS.

So for the future, Rocky, and other elected officials out there, at every level, just a reminder: Public funds are not your personal piggy-bank.

UPDATE
I offer this small token up for your general amusement.


No Such Thing as Bad Publicity

June 14, 2007

“The most hated man on the internet” is attempting to market his “expertise” in “real estate investing.”

Which is laughable, if you know his background is being foreclosed on for over 2 million dollars worth of real estate, which he admits were acquired fraudulently.

He has a website which documents his failures, which is entertainment to many a bored browser.

He plays his “haterz” like a violin virtuoso.

How much of what he says is true? I dunno, but he’s got a potential partner with a business plan. What does it matter?

So it shouldn’t surprise anyone that in this day and age and the rise of fucktards, celebutards, and worthless trust fundies, and other ne’er-do-wells, that Casey is web master of his own domain.

I say, hang ’em high.

When people in positions of trust decieve the public and defraud institutions out of our money (I know that banks think it’s their money, but stay with me here), they deserve the harshest punishment allowed by law. This guy might be facing 98 years, and already had to pony up 2.75 mil (so far) in penalties, but the chances he’ll be inside that long are slim (lay down your bets, the line: he’ll get five, out in three with good behavior); and 2.75 mil may be a lot for you and me, but I imagine it’s only skimming the surface of his trough of ill-gotten gains (why shouldn’t he give it all back?).

I’ll be keeping my eye on his sentencing, curious to see just what sentence the court hands out (someone just said he’ll pay a fine and walk!).

Maybe he’ll pull a Ken Lay and we’ll see actual justice. Just desserts all around, waiter!


Boy, Talk About Being Hoist by Your Own Petard

If You Harbor Terrorists, You Are a Terrorist

Oh rrrrrreally?

Ever heard of Luis Posada Carriles and Orlando Bosch?

By all accounts, terrorists.

So therefore, Señores Bush (W and HW) are Terrorists!

Simple. Logical.

Now that that is settled, I wonder who else needs to be sent down to Gitmo. Kissinger?


It Figures: He is a Lawyer

Headline: TB Patient Identified as Lawyer

“He stepped on a plane with 487 people, one of the largest aircraft that Boeing makes, and he put us all at risk, just so he could go get married”

also of interest:

And in yet another twist to a story that seems to grow murkier with each new revelation, Mr. Speaker’s father-in-law, Robert C. Cooksey, is a tuberculosis researcher who has worked at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Do these CDC people like to experiment on the public for kicks? Maybe they’re like those MK Ultra spooks who enjoyed surreptitiously slipping one another LSD.

What ever happened to finding that anthrax killer from 2001? IIRC, there was speculation about one particular guy, but it just might be someone else- maybe another CDC droid (Ed.: there must quite a few!) so dedicated to his job that he must like to “conduct independent field evaluations” in his spare time.

Or maybe he was on the clock? Who knows?

When I got anal probed by those martians, I’m starting to think they might have actually been pretending, and were actually from CDC… or maybe NIMH.
