Don't make Walter Moore angry....

... you wouldn't like him when he's angry.

Former Mayoral Candidate Walter Moore went on Fox News last night and delivered a scorching indictment of Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.

Moore explained in detail how Villaraigosa had accepted hundreds of thousands of dollars of free tickets for hundreds of sporting events and concerts.
City Ethics laws dictate that politicians have to declare any gifts that they receive.
It is part of trying to operate the City in a transparent manner.

Villaraigosa didn't report the tickets, and the fact that these companies .... AEG, the Dodgers, Staples Center etc... had business and contracts pending with the City makes it appear that there is a "pay to play" situation going on in Los Angeles City government.

I don't agree with Walter Moore on every subject, but we are in complete agreement here.
Villaraigosa is corrupt, he is stealing from the taxpayers of this City, and he needs to go.
In addition, his pathological dishonesty in his personal life and other matters makes him an all-around creep.

District Attorney Steve Cooley is already beating Kamala Harris by a wide margin in his election for Attorney General. I think it would be like putting a cherry on the sundae if he were to place Villaraigosa in handcuffs and perp-walk him into the County Jail. Los Angeles needs to have ethical and honest leaders in the future if the City is ever to pull out of its tailspin.

We already have a Council Member (Alarcon) under indictment who refuses to step down.

We are on a path to become Detroit.
