With all of the stories and side stories emerging from the Noguez probe here in LA County, one of the most bizarre "plays" took place during the past 72 hours.

A bizarre email from nameless union leaders ended up making front page news all over Southern California.. .  

This ONE memo caused Los Angeles County Assessor Steve Cooley to hit the airwaves, and we had a long "chat" with Mr. Cooley over here at Los Cerritos COMMUNITY NEWSPAPER.  

LCCN Publisher Brian Hews and I were given the "latest" developments on the criminal investigation.... 

This DA means business.  

This isn't a just another public corruption case, this is the "biggest of the big." 

Steve Cooley is taking on the Assessor's union called "CAPE" (California Association of Professional Employees) with the media cameras rolling.  ....here is my latest "scoop"....  

BTW: I have now officially coined this investigation "Gooze Gate!"  Catchy.  Getting ready for the "swag" to start in production soon.....

Union warns LA County Assessor employees to avoid talking with investigators & media

By Randy Economy

A highly controversial memo from union leaders with the California Association of Professional Employees (CAPE-AFL-CIO) has sparked outrage and heated exchanges between rank and file employees and management inside the Los Angeles County Assessor’s office this week as the growing corruption probe by law enforcement appears to be heading to a Grand Jury within days.
This week hundreds of assessor employees received an email from union officials under the heading “CAPE Assessor’s Members Special Edition.” “Reports of Outside Investigations and Organizations Changes Require CAPE Members to Know Their Rights.”
It is marked as “confidential content for CAPE Assessor Members ONLY. Not for Publication or Recirculation.” Los Cerritos Community Newspaper and the Los Angeles Times have been sent copies of the memo, and LAT’s Reporters Ruben Vives and Jack Dolan highlighted the contents of the memo in its Wednesday edition.
The memo reads as follows:
“Reports of outside investigations and recent organizational changes in the Assessor’s Office have caused many CAPE members to seek additional information regarding their workplace rights.”
“For example, what should you do if you are contacted by a news reporter? What should you do if you witness or are asked to participate in actions you believe to be improper? Or, how should you respond if you are asked to be interviewed by investigators as a potential witness to improper conduct?”
“CAPE members careers are our highest priority. If you encounter any of the following potentially difficult circumstances, please follow CAPE’s recommendations below to protect your career and always call CAPE as soon as possible for assistance.”
“CAPE’s advice in response to incidents that you believe involved improper behavior or action (including the lowering of a valuation).
