BROWN AND COOLEYMy Political Pirates of the Week:
Call them Political BFF's! Team Jerry. Team Steve.
Is this the start of a a new political reality show... or is this the new political reality we have have been waiting for?
Will this be the "TEAM" that will FINALLY END the corruption that has PLAGUED dozens of CITY HALLS around Los Angeles County? Or is this just bad political theater in the making?
Attorney General Jerry Brown and Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley have agreed to coordinate their investigations into the recent allegations of official wrongdoing in Bell, California.
Trust me...these two are looking everywhere....every city hall better be on notice...right guys....?
The Republican District Attorney Cooley (who is running for California Attorney General as the GOP nominee) will focus on possible criminal activity, while the Democratic Attorney General Brown (running as the top Dem for Guv) will focus on possible civil wrongdoing and obtaining relief for the taxpayers.
"What happened in Bell is a travesty, and I intend to get to the bottom of it and to get all the relief that the law allows," Brown said.
"The Los Angeles District Attorney's office has a decade-long record of aggressively pursuing public corruption. We will do so in this case," Cooley said.
Well, they are off to a great start. Each one got one line of "self praise" but Brown got two MORE words in his statement to the media.
Advantage: Team Jerry
