Janice Hahn, congressional candidate in the special election to replace Democrat Jane Harmon in California's 36th District, is under fire for new charges that she used her position as a city councilwoman to funnel money to gang members and criminals in an effort to "keep the peace" between warring gangs in her Los Angeles district.
This devastating report by the local Fox affiliate in Los Angeles comes just a few days before the special election.

And this isn’t even counting the other Democrats. Thanks george76.
This isn’t new news, it is old news. Like your common big city libaril she believed gang members if given the needed care and government money will become proper citizens.
If this is true, it could tilt the district, even if only for the short term.
Well, she is just bribing her voters.
The DNC is a gang.
The Democrat Party itself is a criminal organization.
Here’s some info on the guy running against her. This district voted 64%-34% for Obama over McCain, so it’s pretty liberal. My guess is that Dems will pull out the stops to get Hahn elected, knowing that the wheels of justice grind slowly and they can probably buy enough time to groom someone else for 2012. It will be interesting to see what the voters do.
Craig Alan Huey (born 1950-1951) is a Republican, tea party-backed businessman and conservative political activist who is a candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives in the special election for California’s 36th district. Huey was one of the top two finalists in California’s first open primary, which was held on May 17, 2011. He will will face Democratic Los Angeles City Councilwoman Janice Hahn in the general election runoff on July 12, 2011. The seat became vacant when longtime Congresswoman Jane Harman resigned to work at a think tank. The district leans Democratic and comprises mainly beach communities in southern Los Angeles County.
Huey has been in the business of direct marketing since 1972, running and owning two companies as well as several websites that provide guidelines for Christian voting. He has never run for political office before. He self-financed his primary campaign and pledged to spend $800,000 toward his general election campaign.
Sounds like she went to the John V. Lindsey school.
Didn't take him long to get re-born, eh?
Response: Of course! She is a politician isn't she?
That would be a GREAT name for a prescription drug! What conditions do you suppose it would be prescribed for?
With that kind of time in local politics, being connected to L.A. gangs is basically a given.
It was expected Debra Bowen (D), having just been reelected statewide, would be in the run-off with Hahn (D) for this seat since we do top two regardless of party now.
According to an interview I just heard with Huey, Hahn is running illegal robo calls (FEC complaint filed) claiming he'll close vet hospitals, end medicare and other nonsense trying to undermine Republican turn out because he's been close in early voting.
She's had Pelosi and Bill Clinton out to help her too. Her lawyer sent a cease and desist to Fox 11 over this story and she cancelled further debates.
Registration is in her favor 2-1 but she's clearly concerned. L.A. Times claims Huey's prolife and traditional marriage views are "out of step" with the "moderate" community.
Hahn's pulled in $1m in donations from big labor and environmentalists. He's running on an economic message.
It certainly was true of Chicago politicians and the Capone and Moran mobsters.
President Bush got 39% (to Gore’s 57%) in 2000 and 40% (to Kerry’s 59%) in 2004, so the CD isn’t quite as Democrat as the Obama-McCain results would have you believe. Still, going from 40% to 50% is the toughest 10% to get, even in a low-turnout run-off.
BTW, this allegation against Hahn is not new: it was the subject of a hilariously over-the-top web ad that an independent group put out a few weeks ago.
Kenneth Hahn was her father. He was not on the city council, but on the L. A. County Board of Supervisors for decades, almost literally until the day he died. Even though he had a serious stroke that left him incapacitated, they still propped him up and kept him in office.
Kenneth Hahn’s daughter, Janice, is dumber than dirt, but the family and local Dems have been pushing her through a series of elective offices since daddy died. She will win the run off unless something truly unusual happens. This district was gerrymandered after the 2000 census to be heavily Democrat.
Registrations are 45.28% Dem, 27.46% Rep, 2.21% American Independent, and 0.68% Green. No way a Republican wins here unless something truly extraordinary happens.
The LA TImes is reporting that the Hahn-gang story has been discredited.
That is just plain nuts.
As I recall you were the one who showed it to me.
