Trutanich ackowledges defeat is certain

Downfall Day Dawns for Trutanich

The signs that Trutanich has accepted the he will not be reelected are clear. Monday morning the failed incumbent gave his Hail Mary interview with KABC's Doug McIntyre and the tone of his voice spoke louder than his words; he knows he is defeated.

Gone are the days when Trutanich could barge into KABC's studios armed with a fistful of San Pedro's finest doughnuts. Monday morning Trutanich phoned-in his interview. His tone was definitely downbeat. He's 18 points behind Mike Feuer going into this election. He has alienated just about everyone who ever supported him. He knows it's over. He sounded like a loser.

Another sign that Trutanich acknowledges defeat is certain is the location of his 'victory party.' Is it the Universal Studio Sheraton Hotel where almost a thousand people crammed the ballroom in 2009 to see Trutanich claim victory? No. According to the Studio City Patch, it's Rocco's Tavern, a few doors away from 'longtime supporter' Mort Allen's storefront office. Trutanich's occupation of Rocco's Tavern starts at 8:00PM. Around 9:00PM the results of the vote by mail ballots will be known, and the likelihood is that Trutanich's swinging 18 point deficit will be reflected in those results. By 9:30PM, the next round of results will be known. The party will be over shortly after that.

Rumors suggest that even in his hometown, San Pedro, Trutanich has lost the vote. As quickly as his yard signs were put up, they were being torn down. San Pedran's are a tough community; they love a hero, they hate a heel. They smell the stench of defeat, and they are dealing with it.

20% of Los Angelenos are expected to vote tomorrow, a low turnout by any standard. 70% of them will not be voting for Trutanich based on the results of the 2012 DA primary, and the 2013 City Attorney primary.

The Dragnet predicts Mike Feuer will be LA's next City Attorney.

Nuch is like a dead man walking, politically. The countdown to his political execution has entered the final 12 hours. He will enjoy a fish lunch in San Pedro and visit with a few of his family and friends before going to Rocco's to meet his fate. The latest poll now shows he is 20 points behind Feuer. Lights out at Rocco's at 10pm. Adios A hole

It has been an honor for Mr. Trutanich to have been able to serve the people of Los Angeles for the past four years. During that time Mr. Trutanich has protected the treasury, saving over $300M in favorable trial verdicts, and has steered the City Attorney's Office through difficult and hard times that have seen budget and staff cuts that were unprecedented and caused by the Mayor's personal animus towards the City Attorney.

Despite the setbacks, crime has gone down 23%, not just in the city, not just in the county, but nationwide. The outcome of elections can never be guaranteed, and if the great people of Los Angeles think it is time for a change of leadership, Mr. Trutanich will work tirelessly to the very last hour in office, to ensure a smooth and cooperative transition to Mr. Feuer.

It is not Mr. Trutanich who has been privileged to serve the people of Los Angeles, it is the people of Los Angeles who have had the privilege of having an AV Rated lawyer, a real lawyer, Mr. Trutanch, as their watchdog. His efforts to save them and their tax dollars from gang members and greedy plaintiffs are the reason why this for year period has been so successful.

Thank you all.

Trutanich started out with a lot of goodwill and a chance to be a great City Attorney. Unfortunately, he was seduced by the opportunity to be LA County District Attorney and he shot himself in the foot by breaking his promise to the people. Like they say, you can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time.

Votes By Mail are In

Feuer 58.5%
Trutanich 41.5%

This will not be a very good night for Trutanich. The voters seem to have the intention not only to kick him out of office, but to humiliate him while doing it....
