Roman Perez reminded our hopelessly corrupt city commission of Article V, § 21 of the City Charter. It provides as follows:

"The city commission, the city manager, or any person or committee authorized by either of them, to be compensated as provided by the city commission, shall have power to inquire into the conduct of any department, office, or officer of the city, and to make investigations as to municipal affairs, and for the purpose may subpoena witnesses, administer oaths and compel the production of books, papers and other evidence. Failure to obey such subpoena, or produce books, papers or other evidence as ordered under the provisions of this paragraph, shall constitute a misdemeanor and shall be punishable by a fine not to exceed $100.00 or by imprisonment not to exceed five days, or both."

It is pretty clear that this city commission has the authority to conduct an independent investigation of the Promoter Affair. They will not. They have decided taking Sossi’s bad legal advice and suing is the better way to go. They need Sossi to run cover for them when they knowingly vote to run roughshod over the law. This is why they dumped Goza who refused to continue playing the unethical lawyer for a corrupt City Commission and hired Sossi. Sossi plays the role of whore well.

Further, you do not piss where you sleep, so the saying goes of cowards and impotent voices. Well you do when pissing where you sleep is necessary to protect your bed. Piss in some cases is known to ward off unwanted animals. Or in this case corruption and incompetence.

They will never investigate one another because that would open a pandoras box. Politics has been Hooverized. Everyone has something on someone. BFD - deal with it. Go to the people and defend yourself against the blackmail - tell them "Is this what you want? Commissioners remaining silent in the face of corruption because they fear a mistake in their life will be exposed."

Some will say it is time to investigate the mayor under this rule. This can not happen. The time was before the indictment. Once the indictment occurred such action at this time could interfere with the prosecution. In fact I would go so far as to say both the DA and the mayor’s lawyer would file suit to stop the investigation. It would raise an interesting question of Separation of Powers, but in the end I think the courts would rule in favor of the DA and mayor. Once indicted, the jurisdiction remains with the courts.

So in the end this city Commission will ignore the People’s Charter - because in the end the people are nothing more than a mere inconvenience of office.
