Apparently the creator of the attached attack mailers thought Compton residents are stupid. In an attempt to catapult city council candidate Emma Shariff to the dais, residents received mail that depicts incumbent, Dr. Willie Jones, as being under investigation by the district attorney’s office. Comptonites do not appreciate council member Isaac Galvan attempts to insult their intelligence and have asked this blog to “put him on blast”.
Hews Media Group published an article in August 2014, that included a letter from District Atty Jackie Lacey’s office that stated her office has received inquiries into many of the current council members, which includes Mayor Aja Brown, City Attorney Craig Cornwell AND Isaac Galvan.
Councilman Galvan gleefully flaunts his attendance at pricey sporting events, usually in attendance with a Compton business owner, and 2 Urban Girls hopes he is reporting the luxury items on his campaign forms. The business owner in question clarified that he attends with the councilman, so that would mean he didn’t take the councilman with him. Residents are aware of the bad press former LA Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa received for not reporting tickets he has received. It is required by law.
Galvan has since removed all references of sporting events from his social media sites but you already know 2 Urban Girls has copies.

Here is a copy of the FULL letter in question.

Isaac Galvan is the ‘new kid on the block’ and is learning the hard way. But one has to ask, “who is his teacher”? Could it be the person who sits to his right?
It should be noted that “all” of Compton’s elected officials are being investigated for possible voter fraud. The D. A. was getting so many complaints that she decided to look at everyone in order to be fair. We are still waiting for Ms. Lacey to release the findings of her investigation.
This probably will not post but……..
The writers post addresses Councilman Galvan omitting names (including his own, that is funny) from the official D.A inquiry. As the writer you do exactly the same thing when you omit 5 of 8 names choosing to list only Mayor Brown, Councilman Galvan and City Attorney Cornwell. The writer did post the official DA letter (pdf) which has the complete 8 names listed, by highlighting and separating partial fact (your post) and fact (DA letter PDF) you hid the truth and it appears the writer attempted to willfully deceive the readers.
The writer appears to have continued the same pattern of deceit in which they initially attempted to expose by presenting partial information. Why list only 3 of 8 names?
Please feel free to enlighten the readers.
