A word of advice to Congresswoman-to-be Janice Hahn — assuming she doesn’t blow next Tuesday’s election — stick to being sweet, charming and ditzy, and get a new lawyer.
When Fox News reporter Chris Blatchford circled around looking for an update to his three-year-old report on how cozy the Councilwoman was with violent gang members, getting them jobs in intervention programs and helping them get out of legal problems, Hahn made it easy.
She refused to talk and had her lawyer send a letter to Fox News 11 demanding the station “cease and desist” from pursuing the story. Doesn’t she know Rupert Murdoch is the most ruthless journalist in history and how his news organizations have gone to such extraordinary lengths like hacking politician and celebrity emails and electronic eavesdropping?
The letter from attorney Stephen Kaufman — treasurer to virtually every campaign by City Hall insiders — gave Blatchford the opening to stick another finger in Hahn’s gang-loving eye last night.
