My nightmare: Alarcon re-elected!

I was tossing and turning in bed last night having a horrible nightmare.

City Council Member Richard "Fredo" Alarcon was being re-elected.

Now, of course, this nightmare makes no sense. Alarcon is termed out and can't run again in the 7th Council District or any other Council District, for that matter.

But...the fact remains...what if?...what if?

What if Alarcon wasn't termed out?
Even though he is a career criminal who has been feeding at the public trough for years, Alarcon might beat any challenger in the 7th!

Think about that.

A sitting Council Member hasn't been beaten in an election in over 20 years.

Even though Alarcon is under indictment, he could possibly still win re-election.

The City of Los Angeles is that corrupt that he would still get the backing of the unions and the career politicians and the special interests.

The horror....the horror....
