I am divorcing Steve Lopez, from the Times, because he is absolutely full of crap and their other reporter Alene Tchekmedyian is no better.
I miss the old days of earnest and honest journalism because the Steve Lopez I fell in love with, the one who discovered musical genius Nathaniel Ayers has gone bat s*** crazy in attacking Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva’s department’s search of Sheila Keuhl, Patti Giggans, their offices and Metro.
The Times resident sheriff watchdog Alene Tchekmedyian then appears to have deliberately glossed over the fact that Sheila Kuehl told a news reporter that she got a call from county counsel the night before the search, who said she got a tip from Max Huntsman that the search was going to take place. Alene also conveniently omitted that Kuehl said someone from the Times called her last week with the same assertion that she was going to be searched. Was Alene her source from the Times? She’s clearly gunning for a pulitzer and it’s no coincidence she finally made above the fold on the papers front page today. Please add the video of Kuehl making those comments for context.
Hi @AleneTchek just read your article in todays Times & only thing missing is the fact that Sheila Kuehl told reporters that Max Huntsman was the source of her tip. Why did you omit that? You made it sound like @LACoSheriff came up with that assertion out of nowhere. @RobBonta pic.twitter.com/ndbPHQynbY— 2UrbanGirls (@2UrbanGirls) September 15, 2022
2UrbanGirls my belief is that politicians, especially of black and brown persuasion, have strategically and criminally placed themselves, and their benefactors in a position to enrich themselves on the backs of poor black and brown people.
2UrbanGirls I’m 45 years old and I’d like to believe I’m not naive but these brand new politicians steal with no class .
In fact I miss the days when politicians were found with sex workers or using campaign funds at strip clubs.
These politicians are out of control and they are so blatantly reckless and greedy they don’t even have the decency to hide their gluttony and desire to fulfill their carnal and fleshly behavior.
In fact wasn’t it Inglewood City Clerk Aisha Thompson who proudly boasted that being elected or selected (let the reader use discernment) city clerk afforded her the ability from from “eating red beans and rice to Maestro Steak house” during her swearing in ceremony at city hall during the height of the COVID pandemic?
With that being said, as the old folks say, where there’s smoke there’s definitely fire, and no one should simply dismiss the account of Metro whistle-blower Jennifer Loew in which she sued and ultimately settled for over a half a million dollars.
The Inglewood mayor would typically dismiss this as “nuisance” money but a half a million taxpayer dollars say they wanted this to go away, quickly. The outgoing CEO from Metro’s new job hung in the balance. Then to make matters worse, for Kuehl that is, the Fox News reporter who reported on the whistleblowing got an emmy for his work.
That hotline was causing taxpayers up to $8,000 per call and they were artificially inflating the call numbers with hang ups/wrong numbers to make it appear like it www being used. It was discontinued after our reporting, which won an investigative EMMY. https://t.co/NnRtsTmCdC— Bill Melugin (@BillFOXLA) September 8, 2022
Paging George Gascon!
In closing now we clearly know why the Board of Supervisors are willing to go through hell and back, with gasoline drawers on, because if Villanueva is re-elected he may be the man to not only to put the Board of Supervisors in jail but to begin to fix a corrupt system the the the local Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Public Corruption Division has chronically, and seemingly intentionally, has failed to do.
