You see, I supported Mr. Gongora in his bid for the City Commission 4 years ago. I thought he would make a positive addition to City Hall. But I have since become very discouraged by his misconduct as a Commissioner.I don't like Levine for bullying the press and others, I guess the comedian is the only one left.
While at a lunch with him in July 2010, he told me that unless I hired his campaign manager, he wouldn't introduce a legislative matter I asked him to bring before the Commission.
I refused this shake-down -- this extortion attempt one which was witnessed by a business associate of mine.
Mr. Gongora also failed to list in two successive campaign reports contributions I made to his 2009 campaign. I reported these violations of state election law to the authorities.
