I think it's obvious at this point that Faulconer cannot win. David Alvarez is going to get out of the race and shift his support to Fletcher and put him over the top. In exchange, Fletcher will have to agree to appoint a lot of Hispanics to important positions and support living wage and rent control. Faulconer is too dumb to be Mayor. His college grades were atrocious even though he took light weight classes. He has a history of incompletes, unauthorized withdrawals, and no credits which are really failing grades. This shows he has no discipline and could not complete his courses. He may have drank his way through college. With his academic record he could never be admitted to the USD law school or a decent graduate school. I don't see how he ever got a job in public relations with his grades.

Papa has a pre-nuptial agreement, no doubt.
He and Filner both wanted much younger brides....
When you fast-forward these December-May unions you have an Anna-Nicole Smith situation. Huge Hefner believes his brides enjoy changing diapers.
CNN and the Union-Tribune reported today (Aug. 21) that an 18th female, Dianne York, has accused Mayor Filner of harassment-related ...
LOL--I am POSITIVE this will never be seen in the U-T, but I would bet some of the rank-and-file that still work there are rolling on the floor in laughter at this.
Ponzi: I exposed the phoniness of several of the women that Allred trotted out. Almost all were irrelevant because they had not worked for the City when the alleged events took place....often, years before he became mayor. Trotting them out was just show biz -- which Allred has mastered -- and local media got completely taken.
If Faulconer trips up, you may not be able to get it in local media. Basically, they are controlled by the downtown corporate welfare crowd. Best, Don Bauder
This is another example of how profitable and cash-rich some companies are. The guy bleeds two and a half million bucks out of the operation, and it still has its doors open? How that can happen is a total mystery to me, because these embezzlers usually aren't that clever, but they do spot a chink in the armor and exploit it. Maybe the owners and/or top management just never bothered to look at the finances, after all, it is boring stuff, nothing but numbers on paper. But if they want to get rich and successful, it takes money and money requires knowing what makes the business tick. Sheesh!
He's going to pay the money back? How? Most of it is dissipated, not invested and growing, because that's what high-living embezzlers do, they spend it. I did a 'net search on this company and found that neither of its websites was up. Too embarrassing?
BREAKING NEWS: MAYOR AGREES TO OBEY LAW!!!
I'm as shocked as anyone about this, but my amazement is tempered because there was little chance he could get a judge to agree, and because it's very difficult, perhaps impossible, to completely erase a cyber trail, even if you can pull a judge out of your pocket.

SAN DIEGO'S PRIORITIES ON DISPLAY: CITY STARTS DISCUSSIONS WITH CHARGERS AS OPERA ANNOUNCES IT IS CLOSING
As the San Diego Opera is attempting to close, the City chose today (March 28) to open discussions with the Chargers on a new stadium.
According to ESPN, Mayor Kevin Faulconer proclaimed, "My main priority is going to be ensuring that any proposal that moves forward protects us as taxpayers here in San Diego."
This is a baldfaced lie -- one that precedes any deal for a stadium in any city. Leaders in government proclaim that taxpayers will be protected, but studies show that taxpayers pick up 70% to 80% of the tab.
Faulconer is announcing his alliance with the Chargers at the same time it has come out that San Diego Opera repeatedly tried to get relief of $750,000 annual rent at the Civic Center, but was always turned down. Best, Don Bauder
Ian's ex-wife was in charge of marketing, and was highly paid. She failed miserably at her job, and Ian should NEVER have hired her in the first place. Ask Ian to look up the word "nepotism" and then report back. His unethical decision should have been overruled by the wishy-washy Board. For this and other self-serving behavior, he should be fired immediately and not rewarded with a payoff as he packs his bags for departure.
