Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s relationship with a television reporter is raising new questions about his conduct as it relates to city business, KNBC News reported.
Under California’s Public Records Act, KNBC reporter Ana Garcia asked the mayor to show the station his e-mails and his official calendar.
But, according to Garcia, the mayor’s attorneys refused to turn over most of the things the station requested.
Finally, a MSM outlet is investigating Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and his sordid love affair with Telemundo Channel 52 political reporter Mirthala Salinas.

So, what is the FLAP?
1. The Mayor is stonewalling the press and the public’s right to know his schedule, his communications and what he does on the “public’s dime.”
2. Mayor Villar has preferentially given interviews and press access to his girl friend, Mirthala Salinas.
3. Hizzoner availed himself of a private jet to fly to Rosa Parks funeral, paid by a special interest and campaign contributor, Ameriquest Corporation because the Mayor could not timely take a commercial flight because he wanted to spend time with Mirthala Salinas at her Studio City condominium.

As Flap said yesterday, THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG.
KNBC will be successful with their information request – even if they have to obtain a court order. And who knows what other distracting and/or inopportune liaisons (with food and wine) the Mayor has had with Mirthala Salinas over his Mayoral tenure.
In the meantime, the sounds of crickets are heard at the Los Angeles Times and Telemundo.
During the course of a television interview on June 19, 2006, Villaraigosa walks with Salinas outside the state Capitol.
