STORY UPDATED – I previously posted on the smear by Alex Vega and Frank Ibarra on Alfredo Amezcua in Rumores. A little over a week ago, I decided to do a little research into their attack, and what I uncovered is much more sinister than some vicious political attack, but an organized effort to destroy a manâ€™s career and his ability to provide for himself and his family.

One week after the story broke on the smear campaign in Rumores newspaper, the common citizens of Los Amigos, a Latino advocacy group who meets at the Jaugerhaus every Wednesday morning, are seeking a Grand Jury investigation of longtime Santa ana Mayor Miguel Pulido. The want the Grand Jury to focus on the confilict of interest in regards to a recent article in the OC Weekly on Mayor Pulido’s alleged connections to the vending truck industry.

The OC Register is reporting that Santa Ana Mayor Miguel Pulido and his allies have fired the opening shot in the 2010 race for Santa Ana Mayor. When Alfredo Amezcua first announced his intentions to challenge the longtime Mayor, most pundits agreed he was the most credible challenger since Mayor Pulido won in 1994. This recent attack is evidence that the Mayor does fear the challenge that Alfredo Amezcua poses.

First Bob Dornan, then Mike Carona, now it seems R. Scott Moxley has done it again by exposing Santa Ana Mayor-For-Life Miguel Pulido and his connections to the vending truck industry in Santa Ana. Apparently the Mayor forgot to disclose lot’s of details about his connection to Abel Foods, which is the main provider to vending trucks in Santa Ana.

At last night’s Santa Ana City Council meeting, the Council voted to continue the issue of removing Jeff Dickman from the Historic Resources Commission for two weeks in order to request a resignation from him. Myself, Thomas Gordon and Mike Tardif spoke on the issue. I stressed that an explanation should be given and he should have been given the courtesy of being offered to resign. Apparently the Council listened for once.
