Day-Time Drama Plagued by LA Politicians

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa was on All My Children yesterday, not working his job, but pretending to do his job in a fake town with not actual moguls, in a fantasy scenario about bringing jobs to LA. Watch the clip here.

City Council President Eric Garcetti was on the soap last week, featured in the clip above. We asked Julie Wong at Garcetti’s office if Garcetti was “doing stuff like the mayor” does that mean he’s going to run for Mayor? “I think it just means that he wanted to be supportive of the production moving to LA (Glassell Park in his Council District to be exact),” Wong tells FBLA. “And bringing 150 new jobs for Angelenos with it (not to mention a boost for local caterers, storage facilities, etc.).”

We wonder if they got paid scale, because that would be technically be taking away a job.
