Coming to an after-Christmas sale near you: Rockard “aka Rocky” Delgadillo! Pick one of three legal defense funds to buy yourself some access to the LA City Attorney!

December 26th, 2007 · 4 Comments

The LA Times is reporting that Los Angeles City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo has three legal defense funds to address separate legal challenges or ethics investigations. Individual donors can now give him more money that is usually allowed since each fund is set up under a separate account. City politicians in Los Angeles are supposed to not raise more than $1,000 per donor every year.

The most recent legal defense fund was set up after it was discovered that Rocky’s wife, Michelle Delgadillo, was driving a city owned vehicle without a license and using city staffers to help babysit their children. In case you forgot, his wife also backed the city vehicle into a pole.

One would think that a city attorney would not need so much “legal defense.” This guy should have a relatively clean record at least in the public eye. Another tidbit that came out of the LA Times article involves using Delgadillo’s officeholder account to pay for dinners that included his wife. Isn’t it enough that she gets to toodle around town in a city vehicle? It seems that when you buy a piece of Rocky, you end up having to feed his wife too.

    Do you think it will ever end? Do you think there will ever be a time, when locally elected Latino politicians do not wallow in the mud, and publicly humiliate themselves time and time again with their mindless behavior? Who would have thought that we’d have a City Attorney, who actually competes with George W. Bush for blatant public stupid moments? A mayor who constantly forgets where he laid his hat? And an Assembly Speaker who thinks he is the reincarnation of Boss Tweed, all at the same time! If there are any more Gloria Molina’s out there…please run for public office.

    It’s the machismo mentality at work. Muy macho makes you do stoopid things. That’s Rockard’s MO right there. Too Macho! The mayor and the assembly speaker seem to suffer from little man’s syndrome with a touch of the coconut complex. The assembly speaker more so, since he’s an anchor baby and buying French wine on the taxpayer’s dime makes him feel so powerful…powerful like ex-Presidente Salinas and his brother Raul of Mexico.

    Sounds like we’re talking about the Three Stooges?

    Well…Rockard seems to fall into that category. Can you imagine? Setting up three legal defense funds so the public can finance your legal bills that were accrued for improper public behavior? So in other words, when you break the law, the public finances your legal defense to keep you out of jail. Is Rockard now King Rock? All this sounds like a ponzi scheme. And this is a man who ran for Attorney General of the State of California. This is Richard Nixon times ten! Accept of course, Pat Nixon didn’t drive around without a license and crash into other vehicles.
