Merv Dymally being Typical, the Typical Black Elected Representatives, are Elected Officials in Name Only!
All elected representatives are sworn under oath to uphold the respective State and U.S. Constitutions. This is most important in any issue of truly warranted redress between a law abiding citizen, and blatant violation(s) of law, by the respective State, and/or U.S. Constitutional protections.
It is not a new revelation as to the failure of former Congressman, now California State Assemblyman Merv Dymally, 2nd District Los Angeles County Supervisor Yvonne B. Burke, A.K.A. "Brentwood Burke", the "Baffoon" in former 10th District Los Angeles City Councilman Nate Holden, former carpet-bagging 10th District Los Angeles City Councilman Martin Ludlow, former 10th District Councilman Dave Cunningham, former carpet-bagging living in Oakland but holding political office in Los Angeles no good Assemblywoman Theresa Hughes, Congresswoman Diane Watson, Congresswoman Maxine Waters, etc.,etc., have failed to serve the communities that each of these individuals are sworn under oath and mandated by law to serve.
General and specific published information from multiple sources do exist to show that neither the Black elected leaders, Black lawyers, Black journalists, nor the so-called civil rights groups serve the inner-city:
The Urban League's campaign to keep blacks down, Black help groups don't really help poor blacks, The Squatter in L.A.s Own Back Yard: Rising Black Poverty, Cartoon and Caption: "We thought you might more easily identify with these names than names like Venice, Watts, Willowbrook, Pacoima, etc....".
Every Black elected official, be it within the State of California and beyond, has been petitioned for redress regarding:
A. The long standing civil suit, Los Angeles Superior Court Case #C895188, filed by Mr. and Mrs. Leon E. Lofton, Jr., against an institution of government, specifically as applied to the Los Angeles Unified School District. The defendants being the LAUSD have already admitted guilt to each and every allegation.
B. The subsequent destruction of law abiding Black families through the illegal break up of the Black family structure for profit, specifically the Mr. and Mrs. Leon E. Lofton, Jr., family unit. Black Social workers, probation officers, and foster care providers, and so-called religious individuals aided and abetted in the destruction of the Mr. and Mrs. Leon E. Lofton, Jr., family unit for profit, and illicit gain.
C. "Theft by Court", a publication that documents the unlawful arrest, unlawful penal incarceration, and unlawful restitution charged to truly innocent young adult Black males.
D. Lack of competent journalism, as strongly evidenced by the erroneous article, "Squatters Arrested at Courthouse", as published by the Los Angeles Sentinel, the so-called largest Black Owned newspaper on the West Coast, which publishes false information about Black people, specifically as it relates to the Mr. and Mrs. Leon E. Lofton, Jr., family unit, which amounts to "Yellow Journalism".
E. Other atrocities that are also of court record.
Whenever any law abiding U.S. citizen is denied competent representation, the U.S. and respective State Constitutions, give the citizen the right to run for public office, appeal to the general public via petitions, or other forms of communication.
The void that exists in finding competent mandated representation regarding A, B, and D above made it possible for:
F. Leon E. Lofton, Jr., an educator-administrator to run for the 28th Congressional District against 37th Congressional Representative Yvonne B. Burke, and Tom Neddy, a CPA from Culver City. Between the three candidates, 37th Congressional Representative Yvonne B. Burke, is the only candidate who did not live in the 28th Congressional District.
Documented evidence filed in the Los Angeles County Superior Court by Leon E. Lofton, Jr., to prove that Black elected leaders play games, are truly incompetent, and refuse to honor warranted petitions for redress of a government seriously gone awry allowed Leon E. Lofton, Jr. to run for elected office without submitting a filing fee, by order of the Los Angeles Superior Court. The only additional requirement was in gaining the qualifying signatures of registered voters for his name to be placed on the ballot. Leon E. Lofton, with the support of family, and others in the community who are unsatisfied with the present elected representatives, made it possible for Leon E. Lofton to acquire the necessary signatures to run for elected office.
G. Esther M. Lofton, to run for the 10th Los Angeles City Council District on two occasions, on the platform that city institutions are "elitist and self-serving", and the indictment that the present elected officials, all Black, have failed to competently serve the residents of the 10th Los Angeles City Council District.
H. The Mr. and Mrs. Leon E. Lofton, Jr., family unit to instruct their representatives, petition government for redress of grievances, and assemble freely to consult the common good.
Any elected official who refuses to serve the law abiding when petitioned for redress for circumstances where government violates the law, is unfit for the duty of elected office holder. Elected representatives by definition are public servants. Public servants serve the people, and not special interest groups, or foreigners, at the expense of the rights of law abiding U.S. citizens. Any elected official who fails to perform the duty as mandated by the sworn under oath of office obligation to perform, is truly incompetent, a misfit, treasonous, and un-American.
Any citizen, naturalized citizen, illegal immigrant, or legal immigrant who holds elected office who fails to perform the duty as mandated by the sworn under oath of office obligation to serve the people, is truly incompetent, a misfit, treasonous, un-American, and has not earned the privileges due a U.S. citizen.
Should this individual be a naturalized citizen, legal immigrant, such an individual remains an illegal immigrant or undocumented, solely because of the tendency to serve foreign interests, at the expense of the rights of law abiding U.S. citizens. U.S. citizenship status is earned by deeds and acting like one, and not by misrepresentations of the essence of what it means to be a U.S. citizen. These individuals, as applied to a no good Merv Dymally, are legal immigrants in name only; their true character is that of an illegal immigrant and/or subversive, first and foremost.
Furthermore it has yet to be published anywhere, when Merv Dymally became a U.S. citizen. In every article it is mentioned that Merv Dymally is a native of Trinidad. Furthermore, when questioned or challenged by his constituency about proof as to if, and when he became a U.S. citizen, Merv Dymally chooses not to come clean with his constituency. Elected officials are servants of the people. Should any citizen question an elected official as to proof of U.S. citizenship status, this should be freely given, even published freely without reservation with respect to anyone who seeks to hold, or run for elected office.
