    DiFi for Padilla

    Recently, Democratic up and comer Alex Padilla, president of the Los Angeles City Council, was up in Sacramento shmoozing with the pols in a town he hopes to eventually take up residence. He is running for the state senate seat currently occupied by Sen. Richard Alarcon next year, in what promises to be a bitter Democratic primary battle against Assemblywoman Cindy Montanez.

    So when his campaign announced the endorsement of Senator Diane Feinstein yesterday, it came as somewhat of a surprise as to why she would endorse him, and why she would endorse so early.

    Any ideas?

    Padilla is on the defensive, he needed to drop a big name fast. Can't go higher than that, whether it matters or not, is a whole different story.

    He's in for a lashing he's never received. Whether he wins or loses, he's gonna get hurt.

    Anybody know how that lawsuit in the City of San Fernando is going along? Mayor Frank & Mayor Sam talked about it weeks back, he hasn't gone back to it. This is shaping out to be pretty big.

    I hear Alex Padilla's plucked candidates are being sued on the basis of Civil Rights--Anti-Semitism. It is rumored that in the windy days of the city campaign, his candidate Jose Hernandez was heard going off about Jews on his door-to-door walks canvassing (which lasted only a few minutes).

    I wonder if Diane Feinstein knows about AP's ardent support of anti-Jew candidates.

    Anybody know more about this?
