Trujillo quashes latest errors linking him to Gatto
Mike Trujillo writes:
"I think its nice that the boys at MS would drop my name -- to me it means they care - but the truth is I'm not working or helping the Assemblyman on anything, I'm sure his capable staff is doing just fine."
Throughout the week, a local politics site persistently published rumors by anonymous commenters that Assemblyman Mike Gatto had hired political consultant Mike Trujillo.
Gatto also attracted attention this week when State Controller John Chiang punk'd California legislators for their paychecks. Democrat-despising pitchfork people who never miss a meal themselves cheered the populist-pandering action, but the legality of denying pay for another's failure to perform is in serious question.
