|Break out the CRIME SCENE TAPE. Yep. This is going to be a long hot summer here in LA County|
I wanted to chime in about Los Angeles County Assessor John R. Noguez “earth shattering” decision to “take a leave of absence” from his duties as the “elected” assessor.
|The Gooze is Gonzo.....|
Noguez is still on the payroll. He is taking a “bad boy time out” from running the office he has looted for the past two years as “America’s County Assessor.” You and I are still paying for his outrageous salary, medical benefits, retirement package, and well, whip out your pocket calculators….
As the reporter who broke the story about this entire CRIMINAL PROBE six months ago, I know a few thousand details about how Noguez lined the pockets of his biggest campaign donors, his campaign consultants, and endless number of political money donors.
Noguez is on the verge of a total meltdown.
Friday, he decided to “get out of Dodge” by submitting a bizarre set of memos to employees and to the media about his current legal woes. Using terms like “it is in the best interest of the office” and “I truly care about all of our employees.” Huh?
“In the interest of restoring public confidence in the professionalism, integrity, and impartiality of the Assessor’s Office, I intend to take a leave of absence from my duties as Assessor. I do not take this decision lightly. “
Wait a minute. He doesn’t make this decision lightly? Are you serious? What planet is he living on? I wonder how many political advisors put their heads together to draft his “manifesto” that was sent out on Friday.
Does he think anyone of the 10 million people PLUS people who live in LA County are actually buying into his “twisted exit plan.”
|Noguez and his "Pen Pal" Ramin Salari. Yep.|
John, the game is over. You are running out of “moves” on your political chess set. This is going to be a long hot summer, and I am going to continue to be covering every detail on behalf of America’s Best Community Newspaper, our “tiny” Los Cerritos COMMUNITY Newspaper. This is remarkable, in so many ways. Keep you posted….
