Monica Garcia emerges this morning in the Daily News as the willful scapegoat in the Mayor's attempt to oust Admiral Brewer from the LAUSD.
The idea of Ms. Garcia, who was in Jose Huizar's court at LAUSD as well as his first campaign run, doing anything at all without the eastside (there, did I use that term right, DQ?) machine's green light is of course patently ludicrous.
But Villaraigosa needs to distance himself from the coming firing of Brewer because of the nebulous status Special Order 40 ballot initiative. One blow to the African American community is endurable, but two is a pattern that could cause trouble.
