METROPOLITAN NEWS ENTERPRISE INTERVIEWS DA CANDIDATES
Today's Met News is expected to publish additional statements from all six candidates for District Attorney. In their previous article, Steve Ipsen's responses arrived too late for publication, however, we understand that he will be included in today's article.
No statements are expected from City Attorney Carmen Trutanich. He has yet to announce his candidacy and continues to hide behind his bogus campaign website aimed at fooling people that he is being pressured by law enforcement officers to run for DA.
Be sure to read today's Met News.
QUESTIONS CONTINUE AS TO THE ADDA'S RESPONSE TO A SECURITY BREACH
ADDA Board Member lost a laptop containing personal details of DDAs. The reports vary in details, but the essence appears to be that either a county or personal laptop was stolen from the ADDA Board Member's vehicle and the laptop contained members' scanned checks and a database of all members.
The ADDA has apparently chosen not to confirm or deny the reports, which tends to suggest that the reports are true, and perhaps the security breach is worse than we know.
TRUTANICH CAMPAIGN MAKES SHERIFF BACA LOOK LIKE A LIAR
The lie, attributed to Sheriff Lee Baca through Trutanich's bogus campaign's Gmail account quotes Baca stating that "Trutanich busted the notorious 38th Street Gang— confiscating an arsenal of 80 firearms and removing 57 long time gang members from the streets." The lie, we understand, has attracted the interest of the media.
Sheriff Baca is understood to be sought for interview by various reporters who will no doubt ask Baca whether he wrote the email attributed to him, or even read it.
Some comments received by the Dragnet in response to our exclusive TRU-Lies article, defended Baca's lie because, according to a press release from Trutanich, his office filed an after-the-fact injunction against the 38th St. Gang. Another, however, noted that if Trutanich had done anything worthy of mention, it would have been reported somewhere. The LA Times certainly did not mention Trutanich at all, and certainly not as a crime fighter who "busted" anything, except perhaps his gut when he reads the reports of his blatant grandstanding.
ADDA BOARD MAJORITY RELEASES ROB DVER VIDEO TO SUPPORT AFFILIATION
Dver states that Steve Ipsen, Hyatt Seligman and Frank Tavelman's have all given him assurances about the wisdom of joining AFSCME and those assurances have to be given "a certain amount of deference." That, howver, appears to be the sum and substance of his testimonial.
Dver does state that he has seen documents regarding the agreement with AFSCME, which poses the question, if Dver can see those documents, why are they not being shared with other members?
Equally, as the issues of affiliation, joining AFSCME, and the Agency Shop are so clearly intertwined, some may wonder why Rob Dver's YouTube video is "unlisted" meaning only those with a link can view it. Once again, the ADDA Board Majority does appear to favor an unhealthy amount of secrecy in the way it conducts it's purported representation of all DDAs.
If the ADDA Board Majority wishes to avail itself of the Dragnet, they are free to post a link to Dver's YouTube here, and perhaps respond to the Security Breach issue at the same time.
