Re: “Taking the 5th

This is a sadly disappointing article. I was actually embarrassed for Jonah Rankin while reading this piece. He obviously has no clue about local politics. "Can Lynda Hopkins bust up the West County Boys' Club"? ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME? She's new face of the Boys' Club! Why didn't you take off the rose-colored glasses before interviewing and rallying around Lynda Hopkins? She's a carpetbagger, she's no FDR, and she's bought and paid for by the same people who foisted Efren Carrillo on us. His backers are now her backers. Herman Hernandez Jr, her campaign manager, and his dad, have been staunch Carrillo supporters since the beginning. And her consultant is Rob Muelrath, and you're trying to tell us she's not an insider and she's going to "save the 5th"? From what? A seasoned veteran who has stood with working class people her whole political life? A politician who isn't in the back pocket of Mr. Doug Bosco?

Do you know why Eric Koenigshafer isn't running, even though he said he would if his buddy Efren didn't run? Because the puppetmasters found someone better, and Eric knows it's all about the machine, and not him. That's why he gallantly stepped aside for Hopkins.

Do us all a major favor and stop writing about local politics until you actually know something about local politics. Sheesh.

Re: “The Telltale Text

Cynthia, why are you acting as a Carrillo/Bosco apologist? Your "innocent" question is actually trying to impugn the totality if the article. We've all suspected Bosco's undue influence on the PD, and now here's proof.

Add the appointment of Lisa CarreƱo to the editorial board, a way to get her name out to the community in advance of her running for Carrillo's seat. Soon Gore will get the PD's endorsement for the 4th, another member of the Bosco Boys Cabal.

Your obvious attempt to protect your husband's close personal friend, and a contemptuous stalker of women, is beneath you.

Re: “Falling Star

If he had apologized to the woman, he's smart enough and Doug Bosco is smart enough to have said it in the news where everyone can read it. Actually, maybe they're not that smart, because HE HAS YET TO APOLOGIZE. And how do we know it wasn't Ambien? BECAUSE HIS HANDLERS HAVE COME OUT SAYING HE HAS A DRINKING PROBLEM, AND THAT SAN DIEGO'S "HERO" FIGHT LAST YEAR WAS A MANIFESTATION OF HIS DRINKING PROBLEM. THAT'S WHY!!!!!! ALL OF IT IS SPIN! Why do people like you, Joolz, treat the perp as if he's the victim? Mr. Carrillo is lucky he didn't end up with a bullet between his eyes. He needs to step down. NOW.
