Reuters is reporting today that Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. has picked up the services of La Jollan Mark Fabiani to manage the public-relations angle of the firm's ongoing troubles with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

An ICE audit of Chipotle "turned up large numbers of undocumented workers on payrolls in Minnesota, Virginia, and Washington, D.C.," Reuters says.

Lawyers for Chipotle are in the midst of giving up to the feds "hiring records, emails, and documents that deal with corporate policy," according to the account.

"Chipotle also received 'a handful' of subpoenas seeking 'very specific records that were unique' to some of the roughly 30 restaurants visited by ICE agents in May."

Fabiani, who enjoys the title of special counsel to Chargers president and CEO Dean Spanos, and is point man for the team's never-ending efforts to build a new taxpayer financed stadium, also works for seven-time Tour de France winner and doping controversy-plagued Lance Armstrong, and has also gone to bat for Wall Street giant Goldman Sachs to ward off blame about the U.S. financial meltdown.

Does he make it a practice to represent only the guilty-as-sin and hopeless cases? He's counsel, yet manages public relations. There's a marriage of skills and duties made in hell. The common thing of both is never really telling the truth and endlessly spinning something bad to make it look fabulously good. Let's see how he does with this one.

After all the BS he floated with the Chargers why would anyone hire him for anything?

The reason is that he is successful in selling his BS about the Chargers to a significant portion of the local population. If it were not for the current economic backdrop and city's financial condition, that new stadium would now be under construction. He's very good at what he does, unfortunately.

LOL..you are 100% correct!

The ONLY thing stopping the building of a new Chargers stadium is the looming city bankruptcy and our national depression.

Well, SurfPup, here we are again in total agreement. Great minds think alike.
