EAST BAY CITIZEN. EVERYWHERE SINCE 2009

Sleeping with the Enemy

Payback Is A… | San Leandro Mayoral Candidates | Could AD16 Be Flipped?
CHAPTER 16 | How often do you see a Republican operative with a passion to help a Democrat win re-election? A few week’s back, I asked an East Bay Democratic congressional candidate whether they employ any Republicans on their campaign team. They looked quizzically at me as if I had actually identified a mole among their ranks. Typically, they don’t ask about a potential employee’s political affiliation because it’s usually quite obvious from their resume, they told me. Democrats usually want to work for Democrats, but not always, apparently. 

Works for a Democrat, but identifies as
a Republican.
Place this in the file labeled “Reasons why Rep. Eric Swalwell is a closeted Republican”: Swalwell’s campaign field organizer is a young man named Patrick Urbanus. A hawkeyed EBC reader emailed a screen shot of Urbanus’ Facebook page in which he lists his party preference as Republican. It does seem odd for a Republican to want to help a Democrat win re-election even though Urbanus may have some personal link to Swalwell's family. It's also who you know when it comes to employment with Team Swalwell. Recall, he hired a rich donor's daughter for a position in his congressional office. It’s the kind of thing that only adds credence to the argument Ellen Corbett recently made when asserting Swalwell is simply not progressive enough for the 15th District.

And since most primary voters are highly partisan, Corbett’s move is smart. However, Swalwell might later be able to attract conservatives in November. But truthfully, working across the aisle is noble in concept, but most progressives in the East Bay realize placating Republicans in the House is not in this area’s best interests unless the aim is to shortchange unemployment benefits or hand over the right of privacy to the government.

Mike Katz-Lacabe
PROPOSAL FOR REVENGE Loudmouth Alameda County Democratic Party Central Committee member Margarita Lacabe can be your friend one day and your bitter enemy the next. However, she has long been a strong opponent of Mary Hayashi, especially since her shoplifting incident. This week, Lacabe posted security footage of Mary Hayashi at Neiman Marcus before the infamous arrest in 2011. Except, Lacabe should be careful. Her husband, Mike Katz-Lacabe, is a likely candidate and front runner for the San Leandro City Council this November. (Timeout: I know what you’re thinking. Why does Katz hyphenate his name, but she doesn’t? There are many theories. Time In) If Hayashi doesn’t place in the top two in her State Senate 10th District race this June, she should put some of her remaining campaign coffers to good use. How about contributing a few thousand to Katz-Lacabe’s opponent? Hayashi has given to San Leandro candidates in the past. During the 2010 mayoral race, Hayashi contributed to Joyce Starosciak’s campaign to the consternation of then-Mayor Tony Santos.

Catharine Baker
REAGAN REPUBLICAN When I asked Catharine Baker, the lone Republican in the 16th Assembly District in Contra Costa County and the Tri Valley, about her past in politics, her tone suggested she sensed the question was designed to highlight her lack of experience. It wasn't. Baker has never run for office, but has long been active in the Tri Valley. However, she once worked in former California Rep. Sonny Bono’s congressional office. Baker, though, is proving to be one of this primary season’s top rookie prospects. Her arguments are firm and clear and, more importantly, Baker’s conservative ideology is driven purely by fiscal concerns so much so that she almost feels like a Republican from a bygone era and not the radical far-right, sometimes discombobulated, logic often offered in these parts. The Bay Area News Group was also impressed before endorsing her candidacy last week. It remains to be seen whether Baker can squeeze into the top two along with either Democrat, Orinda Councilmember Steve Glazer or Dublin Mayor Tim Sbranti. If she can, you can bet the state Republican Party will expend as much of the small pile of cash it has in an attempt to siphon away a seat in the Assembly currently leaning to the Democratic side.
****
Mark Salinas: catching fire?
HERE AND THERE Last week, I said 16th Assembly District candidate Tim Sbranti has appeared out of his league in this race. One reason for this may be because Sbranti has been constantly on the defensive for the entire campaign. First, for his pro-labor stance during the BART strike last year and, more recently, with the issue of disclosing union questionnaire answers. Unless you’re the incumbent or the clear favorite, it’s difficult to win a race in a purely defensive stance…The Alameda County superintendent of schools race has five candidates, making it unlikely anyone will garner more than 50 percent and avoid a November runoff. Most believe Karen Monroe will advance, but there appears to be no consensus when it comes to the other person. Nevertheless, it was disconcerting superintendent hopeful Helen Foster is almost two weeks from Election Day and is still reading her answers off a sheet of paper like she did this week in at a forum in Alameda…Many think Hayward Councilmember Barbara Halliday is the front runner to be the city’s next mayor. She’s the only woman on the ballot and has proven in the past to be a perennial top vote-getter. Yet, there is chatter by some canvassers in Hayward, not from city races, who sense from going doo-to-door there is momentum attached to Councilmember Mark Salinas’ campaign. In addition, Salinas also has one of the best lawn signs around.

Long way since 2009
San Leandro Councilmember Pauline Cutter is telling people she will run for mayor. Will Mayor Stephen Cassidy, who is not running for re-election, back her? If anybody could be construed as an ally to Cassidy, it is Cutter. However, in hindsight, the seeds of Cassidy's fall were sowed two years when all three of his endorsed candidates for City Council were trounced…Progressive San Leandro Councilmember Jim Prola will receive intense pressure to run for mayor, but he is still relenting, telling some he wishes to spend more time with his infant grandchild. Meanwhile, don’t forget former San Leandro mayor’s Shelia Young or Tony Santos as possible candidates. Crazier things have happened…Finally, the East Bay Citizen turned five years old this week. Looking back at the first two years, it was clear this site was then-Assemblymember Mary Hayashi’s biggest critic--pre-Neiman Marcus--of course. How weird was it this week when Hayashi’s campaign released another anti-Bob Wieckowski website charging him with being a bully against women and minorities and using a number of EBC pull quotes and citations?

For Hayward mayoral race, is it winner take all in June or is there the possibility of a a run-off in November?

Will never vote for wife puppet Mike Katz-Lacabe! His wife, Marga Lacabe, is all of the characters in "One Flew Over the Cuokoo's Nest". Marga is also a fact twisted 24/7 big mouth attention hungry cyber bully!

Back in 2012, most East Bay Democrats were afraid to speak ill of Mary Hayashi even after her arrest. They were frightened that she might actually get elected to supervisor, or if not that, she would use her money to get back at anyone who pointed out her litany of lame excuses for shoplifting.
Most East Bay Democrat political types wimped out on the Hayashi issue, saying nothing.

Thank God we have a individual who is not afraid to speak the truth and digs down to produce the best information we've gotten on the Mary Hayashi arrest since it happened. Not only the videos, but also the police report.
Would it kill EB Citizen to provide a link to the most newsworthy videos we've seen since the Lockyer tapes?

Go to Youtube and put (mary hayashi neiman) into the search.

As far as Mike Katz-Lacabe needing to worry about Mary Hayashi supporting his opponent, I'd say getting substantial money from a twice rejected candidate and a convicted shoplifter is something that opponent might be fearful of accepting given the baggage it would bring. San Leandro voters would have had quite enough of Mary Hayashi by that point.

Hopefully Mary Hayashi will squeak by into 2nd place and then spend every last dime she has in a losing bid during Sept and Oct.
Ending up soundly rejected and with empty campaign coffers.

Winner takes all in Hayward races. Mayor, top two vote-getters for council.

Steve, you've got to be kidding me. The actual surveillance video footage of Mary Hayashi shoplifting is going viral, and you are radio silent on the issue?
Really? You shamelessly touted your snippets of "Nadia Lockyer's Sex Tape", passed along to you by her jilted lover. Those unfortunate glimpses show us a drugged out woman, possibly being taped without her knowledge. But you headline that as your ball breaking "expose"? In fact, you still advertise Nadia's sex tape on your blog.
Then you post illicit text messages between two Hayward officials, both consenting adults, to highlight their private affair.
Afterwards, you report on a private dispute between a County Supervisor and his disgruntled Chief of Staff, cooking up raunchy headlines about how the two of them may have used their computer for a a few hours here and there.
Later, you blast about a young lady's attempt to obtain a restraining order from an aggressive politicians wife.
But you have no urge whatsoever to post up Hayashi's official security footage, as she shoplifts tacky overpriced clothes, the amount of which exceeds more than an average working man makes in a week? Footage that actually disproves years of her shameful denials, footage that actually disproves the direct defenses of her over priced attorney and crisis manager, both of which she paid for with campaign funds. This woman is running to be our next State Senator, and this is the story that you don't find relevant?
What the f-ck is wrong with you, you irresponsible piece of trash?

We knew there was something going on when you went radio-fucking-silent after Hayashi's candid camera footage broke.

Let me get this straight. You're trying to put a 'hit' on someone's head for speaking their mind -- YOU? You're suggesting that another local blogger get hunted down by that wild mongoose Hayashi, simply because she's posted her perspective on local issues? The. same. thing. you're. doing...?

Marga Lacabe (wife of wannabe council candidate Mike Katz-Lacabe) told lies to voters and said she was a lawyer to get elected to the Central Democratic Committee. They should kick her a-- OFF.

You may not agree with Marga all the time, but at least she's got the guts to stand up for what she believes in. Out loud, and in person, which is rare and appreciated. And she dedicates a lot of her personal time to serving her community. Debate is the cornerstone of a democracy.

One part of the multi-part series, the Mary Hayashi exclusive:

The finale in the multi-part series, the Mary Hayashi exclusive:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5sS9YwHRkc&list=UU1XYcuVDSPXeAyKtoitU81Q

Marga Lacabe lied about her profession in hopes of gaining a few more votes to get elected to the Central Democratic Committee, then she is unethical. If she is unethical on the ballot box, guarantee she's unethical most of the times.

Lacabe attempted to mislead voters on two fronts. Not only does lawyer imply you are practicing law, but since when did Mike Katz-Lacabe become Mike Katz. For the sake of not disclosing to voters that the two were married and running for central committee, she successfully duped voters. Margarita Lacabe even portrays herself as a law expert frequently in public during council meetings.

8:11, Great to watch Mary, leaving the store, but looking back just before going out the door, to see if anyone was following.

From the SF Chronicle interview tape here is what Mary said about leaving the building--

"I made a mistake of inadvertently being outside of the store"

My goodness, she didn't just stray across the threshold, she was striding down the street so rapidly that the security had to run to catch her half a block away.
I remember Mary's hired PR crisis guy Sam Singer saying the following "Security approached her “before she had a chance to walk back in,” ( I swear, that is his quote)

Now look at that tape... Oh sure, Mary was just about to walk back in. Right. In another minute she's over a block away or in a taxi.
She was striding away like a power walker in a race.
Mary has told so many lies about this episode, one doesn't know where to begin.
I think the woman has a psychological condition. Seriously I do.

Yes, Margarita got the guts to lie out loud behind the computer, and in person. And she dedicates a lot of her personal time to lie, accuse her community with an imaginary thing or event, postulated for the purposes of argument or explanation when "most of them" disagree with her.

Goodness, strikes me as odd that there is such a vicious attack being made on Marga Lacabe.
Talk about attacking the messenger. This is a classic case.

Marga brought to the public these wonderful videos and before that the police report. That is more than any other news gathering paper, or blog, or TV station has done.

Yet for doing so, she is being attacked. Sadly I don't think its only the pro Hayashi folks who are doing it.
What gives... should Marga have just never gone after the videos and/or just kept them to herself.

I find the attack on her really disgusting. Probably from the same elements of the old clubby Democratic party that were quite willing to never question Mary Hayashi, even after her arrest.
In the old days, they'd call it the "old boys club"..
Don't want anyone messing around in their business.

Marga Lacabe, want to come over and sing Christmas carols? We can sing Silent Night and you can get up and make a fool of yourself, just liked you did when you accused the schools of teaching children religion. Then you can tell everyone you're a lawyer, when you NEVER passed the bar. The Central Democratic Committee should have blow you out of the water for your lies! You're nothing but a bully.

Still suing the city of San Leandro, wannabe first lady!

Warning to all who think they are Marga Lacabe and Mike Katz-Lacabe's “friends”: They will stab you in the back the first time you disagree with their “opinion”. Mike Katz-Lacabe would have his crazy wife Marga aka Margarita uses deceit, omission, and straw-man arguments to make their “point”. We believe there intent are to hurt the citizens of San Leandro. I would suggest a name change for her blog; from “San Leandro Talk” to “San Leandro Slander”.

We knew there was something going on when you went radio-fucking-silent after Hayashi's candid camera footage broke.

Let me get this straight. You're trying to put a 'hit' on someone's head for speaking their mind -- YOU? You're suggesting that another local blogger get hunted down by that wild mongoose Hayashi, simply because she's posted her perspective on local issues? The. same. thing. you're. doing...?

Mike Katz Lacabe has done nothing in his two terms for the school board; on top of that, his wife was officially crowned san leandro's very own, locally grown on food stamps, crazy bitch. Big girl's gotta eat, too bad she can't eat her own words.

Look at how clever this guy is, he's managed to wave his pissy wand in the air, and poof, make you all misdirect your anger. By the way, don't look under the rug:

[right here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5sS9YwHRkc]

because Steve doesn't want you to waste any time watching Mary Hayashi shoplift merchandise. He's rather help her steal the election.

We already know Mike Katz's and Marga Lacabe are stupid. They accused San Leandro teachers of teaching religion, when children sang a religious Christmas Carol at an evening Christmas program. Raised such a stink and got their kids moved to Roosevelt school. Which was all they really wanted. All they do is bully, lie, harass and bitch!

Trace of records that Marga Lacabe moved to San Leandro is in the mission to separate our city and communities.

Every argument of hers, at the end of her defends "always" create accusation of others are racists.

We do not believe she's a human right activist as she claims she is, smoke in the mirror to get her way in/out of breaking the communities.

I'm trying to focus voters on the issues here, not a three year old video. Do you know anything good or bad about the other candidates? Do you even know what the issues are? Phil Matier doesn't. I do, so maybe you should trust my news judgment since I've been perfect over the last years in reading politicians around here. Perfect. Nadia, Hayashi, Joel young, Jesus Armas, Eric Swalwell, Stephen Cassidy. I saved a hospital when most washed their hands of it. So you wonder about my judgment of Hayashi this year? Maybe Wieckowski is soon to be added to the above list?

Marga Lacabe and Mike Katz-Lacabe will stab you in the back the first time you disagree with their “opinion”. Mike Katz-Lacabe would have his crazy wife Marga uses deceit, omission, and straw-man arguments to make their “point”. By the way, what does Mike Katz-Lacabe do for a living, where, what, part time, full time... how and who's paying her everyday crazy pills?

Marga had the tape since her husband was standing in lingerie with his tripod and camera, but SLPD has video of Mike running red lights.

Just voted for Tim Sbranti in the 16TH AD and here's why!

Steve Glazer is a political consultant who was paid hundreds of thousands of dollars by a corporate interest group funded by tobacco companies, oil companies, real estate developers, pharmaceutical and insurance companies. If elected to to the state legislature Glazer would work to pass laws that benefit them and rubber stamp their issues.

Tim Sbranti in contrast, is a statewide leader in education, a classroom teacher and effective local leader. Under his fiscal leadership he transformed Dublin from a city suffering from serious budget deficits into a city with a budget surplus, without sacrificing major cuts to community services.

You wanna talk about 'friend one second' then worst enemy the next? Look in the mirror Tavares. You are like a fucking Tornado on crack cocaine. There is no rhyme or reason for your hits or misses. Oh yeah, don't forget Raj Salwan. He's the best friend money can buy.


We believe that teachers belong in the classroom. To that end, we will be voting for clean STEVE GLAZER 2014. The future assemblyman knows that, too. We all need to send Steve to Sacramento and his opponent back to the classroom, where he belongs.

Teachers have no business in the capital; that's the place for qualified legislators. Teachers belong in the classroom, implementing the policy that the qualified legislators have passed.

Let's all do our part by supporting clean STEVE GLAZER 2014! He's the PEOPLE'S CHOICE candidate!

" I'm trying to focus voters on the issues here, not a three year old video.."
"So you wonder about my judgment of Hayashi this year? Maybe Wieckowski is soon to be added to the above list?"
----------------------------------------------------------------

Well, that's as close to a endorsement, by reduction, as I've ever seen you come. Dismissing "a three year old video." as nothing more than old news. While the current candidate, only earlier THIS month is seen on video, saying "I did not shoplift $2,500 worth of goods"

Oh sure Steven, the videos of her stealing and being arrested for stealing those "$2,500 worth of good" are just OLD NEWS...
Move along folks (voters), we will tell you when news is fresh and relevant. No need for you to see old videos.
Pay no attention to the candidate today when she claims she never shoplifted. Pay no attention to the candidate when she repeats the same lies she has been telling for the past 2.5 years.
Those are not "issues".

ONLY with the release of these "old" videos can we clearly see that Mary has been lying all along and continues to lie today.
You apparently don't care that she tells the voters lies.
She has lied for 2.5 years, her lawyer lied, and her PR crisis pro, Sam Singer lied.

She didn't dare go to trial or she wouldn't even be able to run in the current election as convicted felon. So she copped a plea deal and sits before us on probation while at the same time lying through her teeth.

And this is the women about whom you merely say, 'tell us about your issues Mary'...

Oh yeah, lets only focus on the issues Mary deems important.

Mary's ethics are a issue. Lying TODAY to the public is a issue.
Currently being on probation is a issue.

EBCitizen seems to dismiss these tapes either because of who brought them forward, or because you don't want the damaging reality of them to be discussed in the evaluation of the candidates.

The question the voters must keep asking is why does Mary continue her lying to the public about the crime? The new tapes clearly prove Mary intentionally shoplifted the merchandise and yet she continues to speak of the crime as being "unintentional", a theme she has repeated for 2.5 years.

Don't lie to our face Mary, and then tell us you are really here to speak about the "issues". Your lies ARE the "issue"

Tavares you saved a hospital? You're a nutjob. How/why did you get so twisted with the Wieckowski people? Are you taking money from the Hayashi campaign or there some old beef? I met Bob recently at a community event and he seems like a totally nice guy and straight shooter. I understand that lobbyists in Sacramento look at Hayashi as a person that they can easily buy... How is your thinly veiled support for Hayashi fit into your worldview? Seems to lack credible justification...

I know Steven Tavares well. He's a douche.

We know Marga Lacabe well. She's a liar, fact-twisting bully. Mike Katz-Lacabe uses multiple moniker names exchange topics with his crazy wife. To them, this is smart not crazy.

Mike Katz-Lacabe is a just wannabe computer hacker who got caught in the past. The Lacabes are messy hypocrites faking their support for privacy only to cover their own asses. Are well-known, notorious hackers respectful of privacy or are they thieves of other's personal information? Don't answer that, we already know.

Marga Lacabe told lies to voters and said she was a international human rights lawyer to get elected to the Central Democratic Committee. Hyprocrite Marga talking out of her ass as though she's not a liar?

This is not about Mike or Marga. And this is highly unlike Tavares. He says he wants this to be about the issues, but he's got privately intercepted text messages about crotchless panties on this site. He's either irritated that he got out-scooped by another blogger, or he's being persuaded not to post Hayashi's shoplifting surveillance footage by a handful of key characters. Probably the latter.

To 4:54 pm, Steve got sideways with a few folks at the request of Ro Khanna's crew. Or, in the least, there are a handful of guys that roll with them, including Ro himself, that call up Steve and just offer up rumors and gossip...and Steve goes straight to print with it.

Marga Lacabe lied on her ballot statement about her profession to gain votes to get elected to the Central Democratic Committee. She is unethical and she lied to the voters.

Read the article and comments of how Marga responds to her lie:

http://sanleandro.patch.com/groups/politics-and-elections/p/santos-says-lacabe-fibbed-about-being-lawyer

@7:22 pm -- what about the Hayashi shoplifting surveillance tape. No interest there?

Marga Lacabe, want to come over and sing Christmas carols? We can sing Silent Night and you can get up and make a fool of yourself, just liked you did when you accused the schools of teaching children religion. Then you can tell everyone you're a lawyer, when you NEVER passed the bar. The Central Democratic Committee should have blow you out of the water for your lies! You're nothing but a bully.

Whatever you do, don't discuss the shoplifter that was accused of grand felony theft, the one that's running to be our next state senator.

Freedom of Speech, Marga Lacabe lied on her ballot statement about her profession to gain votes to get elected to the Central Democratic Committee. She is unethical and she lied to the voters.

"I saved a hospital when most washed their hands of it." ..... where do you buy hats to fit that thing?

Selling out Calpine to make a story now is short term nonsense. Ellen's mailer will eventually come back to bite her when time exposes the real numbers and shows her camp as at least misinformed.

"How weird was it...when Hayashi's campaign released another Anti-Piece quoting EB"...yes, it was so weird! Almost deliberate, calculated, and coordinated between you and Hayashi's team. After all, they were just looking for that headline. You were more than happy to give it to them.
Some of us would like you to put up the video surveillance please.

There is the issue of credibility and trust here.
Should the voters hire a individual that a business would not?

I'll give you a list of stores and you tell me which ones would be willing to hire Mary Hayashi if she truthfully filled out a application.

Macys, Kohls, Ross, Target, JC Penny, Sears, GAP, Banana Republic, and on and on.

Would any of those stores hire Mary Hayashi?
If the answer is no, then why should the people of District 10 hire her?

How about EB Citizen getting a interview with Mary Hayashi and asking her the tough questions. After all, she seems to think EB Citizen is a credible source of information, since she is using quotes from EB Citizen in her mailers.

Question you might ask Ms Hayashi.

Mary, in the store security video, we see you at the register, looking down directly into your Neiman Marcus shopping bag.
You are no more than 18 inches from the bottom of the bag.
Looking down into the bag, you lift out two items you are returning.
Still looking down, you can easily see to the bottom of the bag, the location where store security found the $2,450 worth of merchandise.
So Mary, how it it possible you could NOT have seen the $2,450 worth of merchandise that you did not pay for.
It was only inches from your eyes at the time.
You were NOT on your cell phone. You were using both hands to remove the items to be returned. You even pushed a empty plastic bag back into the bottom of the Neiman Marcus bag.
Secondly Mary, how did that merchandise get underneath the items you were going to return? Meaning to get there, you would have had to lift out the "return items" and place the $2,450 worth of merchandise under them, while in the dressing room.

How could any reasonable jury or judge believe that you absent-mindedly failed to see the $2,450 worth of clothing when you were digging around in that very same bag, right at the register?

So Mary, can you explain that action we can clearly see in the video tape of the incident?

So that is the kind of question that EB Citizen could ask Mary.
BTW, you could use your iPad to show Mary the video you are referring to. That way she could explain exactly what you are talking about in the video. You can even run it in slow motion or frame by frame.

I await that interview.

Because as we know, as recently as May 1st, Mary was sticking to the story that she did not intentionally shoplift that day.

There's no reason you should pull Mike Katz into this. He's a good guy. You should be ashamed of yourself for allowing a convicted criminal candidate utilize your blog to launch a war by proxy.

Marga Lacabe, you lied on ballot statement after ballot statement about being a human rights lawyer to the voters. The husband of yours Mike Katz-Lacabe who's currently running for office handed out those campaign flyers saying that you are a lawyer. Mike Katz-Lacabe knowingly handed out your lies and that makes him just as much a dishonest liar like yourself. Stopping pointing at everyone when you would do the same.

See for yourself on page 32 from 2010 candidates list.

http://www.acgov.org/rov/current_election/CandidatesList.pdf

1:38, You and exactly 3 other people in Alameda County have any interest in a 4 year old ballot statement regarding occupation or description of a candidate for Central Committee.
99.8% of voters could not name one person on said committee, let alone remember or care about their designated title.

The only thing that is clear from your posts is that you got your nose out of joint from something involving Marga Lacabe.
Perhaps your micro-focus on this inane topic would make more sense if you'd just let readers know what your beef is.

Otherwise you just sound like a ex-wife or ex-husband who is trying to tell everyone they meet that their ex didn't put his dirty socks in the hamper.
The rest of the world doesn't care and thinks you are nuts.

OMG, if that isn't the definition of "much ado about nothing"

Now tell us the real reason your undies are in a bunch.
I suppose somewhere, some time, "she done you wrong" ?
OK, just spit it out instead of these meaningless accusations you keep pestering everyone with.

Marga needs to stop belittling everyone out of one side of her mouth and then calling herself progressive from the other side.

Now tell us the real reason Marga undies are in a bunch 24/7.

Mike Katz-Lacabe plays along with crazy wife that doesn't make him less crazy.

Mike Katz is a sneaky useless schoolboard member who's served eight years with nothing accomplished. We know he's totally behind the scenes playing crazy with his wife while he pretends to not know about it.

that poor, beleaguered "young woman" who slept with her boss and subsequently blackmailed him into promoting her! let's keep talking about her and use that as an example of steve's "poor" judgement! it's a real winner of an argument!

idiot(s).

Marga and Mike are taking turns talking dirty!

Really 6:39 pm, I'd rather talk about our former Born Again Evangelical Christian legislator - our Majority Leader to be exact - who misused power and trust by sleeping with one (or more) of his subordinates. The one who played the innocent victim once his wife caught him with his pants down.

Either way you slice it, this has nothing to do with Marga or Mike.

Marga Lacabe lied on ballot statement after ballot statement about being a human rights lawyer to the voters. The husband of yours Mike Katz-Lacabe who's currently running for office handed out those campaign flyers saying that you are a lawyer. Mike Katz-Lacabe knowingly handed out your lies and that makes him just as much a dishonest liar like yourself. Stopping pointing at everyone when you would do the same.

See for yourself on page 32 from 2010 candidates list.

http://www.acgov.org/rov/current_election/CandidatesList.pdf

The Lacabes have a double standard, they can not be wrong even though they contradict themselves.

This is not about Marga and Mike. This is NOT about Marga and Mike.

9:58: you can go ahead and talk about Torrico The Irrelevant, while Trisha The Terrible deludes herself into thinking people feel sorry for her and tries to spin her pitiful story as if she's the subject of some greek tragedy. There's truly very little difference between the east bay's finest crazies Mary Hayashi and Trisha Tahmasbi other than one has the chutzpah to run for office and the other cowardly hides behind the party machinery hoping to finally get her turn in the spotlite one day.

1:43 am here's to that, Torrico is irrelevant. 'Nough said.

How is Marge Lacabe not relevant to Mike Katz-Lacabe? He even uses her last name as his sir name, and they both handed in her ballot statement and handed out campaign flyers knowing she lied. The Lacabes are both liars, hypocrites, and spotlight hungry. Just being Marga is the more clinically insane spouse, doesn't make Mike any less linked to their actions together.

Seems like a few people here spend most of their waking hours obsessed about Marga and Mike.
A very odd behavior. Perhaps even a psychological condition for which they might seek therapy.
How about every time you find yourself dwelling on them, you instead do something useful.
Clean up and organize your house, or go outside and remove some litter from the curb. Imagine how much better you'll feel compared to yet another rant about Marga and Mike.
Make your world and the community better rather than typing away in ineffective anger.

Marga Lacabe want to come over and sing Christmas carols? We can sing Silent Night and you can get up and make a fool of yourself, just liked you did when you accused the schools of teaching children religion. Then you can tell everyone you're a lawyer, when you never passed the bar. The Central Democratic Committee should have blow you out of the water for your lies! Still suing the city of San Leandro?

A very odd behavior. Perhaps even a psychological condition for which SHE might seek therapy.
How about every time you, MARGA, find yourself dwelling on them, you instead do something useful.
Clean up and organize your house, or go outside and remove some litter from the curb. Imagine how much better you'll feel compared to yet another rant about OTHERS.
Make your world and the community better rather than typing away in ineffective anger.

12:56, What a sick puppy you are. Seek help.

Lacabe attempted to mislead voters on two fronts. Not only does lawyer imply you are practicing law, but since when did Mike Katz-Lacabe become Mike Katz. For the sake of not disclosing to voters that the two were married and running for central committee, she successfully duped voters. Margarita Lacabe even portrays herself as a law expert frequently in public during council meetings

Marga and Mike are no more tied to Mary Hayashi's criminal conviction and legal issues than Steve Tavares is tied to Nadia and Bill Lockyers personal transgressions last year. Marga is simply offering up information that, quite frankly, our voters need to know in order to be informed.

Marga LACABE and Mike KATZ-LACABE have a double standard. They write bad about peoples past but they don't want people to know their bad past.

Mike Katz-Lacabe knew that his wife was not a human rights lawyer but he still campaigned for her because he knew this lie would get his wife elected to the Democratic Central Committee. He lied to all voters in Alameda County and can never be trusted to hold office EVER! Simply offering up information that, quite frankly, our voters need to know in order to be informed!

3:01 By this point, any reader can see that you are a disturbed individual.
Seriously you need to seek help.
People on all sides of the political spectrum would offer you the same advice.
You have a obsessive compulsive fixation on Marga.
Be assured, no one else is so fixated on your issues with her.
We have read your charges and guess what, they are of little importance to everyone but you.
I don't know what they call your condition but it isn't normal even in the world of gotcha politics.

In short, we really don't think your charges are of any significance.
Sorry, but that is the reality no matter if you keep repeating it over and over and over and over.... which you seem determined to do.
We simply don't care.

ROFLOL! Crazy double standard Marga is here! Don't care why keep coming back for more! LOL!!

For some entirely different fun, try going to the following site that you have probably seen before.

However when you start the Youtube video, change the settings to 0.5 speed.
Then you get to see Mary answer as though she was either high or drunk.
A brief funny diversion from a otherwise repetitive thread we have going on here.

I don't mind Steve's editorializing...usually because I agree with him. But I think he's dead wrong on Wieckowski. Every time I've met the guy he seems genuine and a committed progressive. Hayashi seems like a ladder-climber. Sure, Wieckowski made a bad staffing decision hiring Tahmasbi and mishandled that situation with the AD25 delegate vote. I attribute that to his not being a very smooth political operator, which I don't view as a bad thing--means more likely than not he is in it for the right reasons.

Not working for or related to either candidate. Just my opinion. Steve is wrong on this one but right on all the others. Carry on!

Mike Katz-Lacabe knew about his wife's lie and he allowed that make him no better, they lied to the whole Alameda County voters.

Marga you should post a picture of yourself too, don't be shy, oh find it, this is your better one, right at the center of spotlight making a wannabe legal expert speech.

Is their any East Bay city that doesn't have their share of sleazy politics? No wonder no decent individual runs for office. Those in office are nothing more than whores selling their votes for personal gain. Fuck them all. Thieves, prostitutes, drug addicts, they all landed in office by lying, cheating and stepping on others to get elected. And, they keep getting elected.

1109 are you a decent individual talk like a sailor?

Anyone who attended at least 3 Hayward Mayoral candidate forums would realize that Barbara Halliday "flip-flops" on issues and she doesn't have a lot of accomplishments to cite for her length of service on the Council. Riding other's "coat -tails," voting for the "Loopy fiasco" downtown freeway and being fiscally irresponsible in voting "yes" to spend hundreds of thousand to change BART station signs is sheer lunacy. She may be BANG's darling, but it she is going to move Hayward backwards, not forward. According to Barbara, Hayward has no potential--yet as Mayor she will attract businesses. All those years on the Council and she never cited any specific businesses she attracted to our City. Mark Salinas' canvassers must be saying that he's "on fire." Well, I've seen him go down in flames at a couple of those debates and also when he is confronted by City Workers that he imposed on. Salinas wants to spend money to buy The Green Shutter. More fiscal irresponsibility! I voted for Zermeno because his message never seems to change as much as the others. Talkers & coat-tail riders won't move Hayward forward. They will only talk about being "fiscally responsible" in one breath and then discuss spending 60 million dollars on a "library/learning center," 85 million dollars on a new Police Station and then claim that Hayward will be bankrupt in the next 4 years.

I like Pauline Cutter for Mayor of San Leandro. Diana Souza lies too much, is dumb as they come, and would be an embarrassment to our city.

Pauline Cutter is NOT a Cassidy puppet and is a lot smarter than Diana Souza.

Vote No to all Cassidy's puppets dummy Pauline Cutter is one of them.

You need to get out more. I've been to school board meetings and watched and listened to city council meetings. Cutter stood up to Cassidy many times and on the school board Katz was his only friend. Both Cassidy and Souza try to bully people, Cutter tries to find compromise like a leader should. Bullies always seem to have courage but that just leads to division. To be a leader you also have to have brains and a good heart. Souza is brainless and heartless, will say anything to get elected, but she has done nothing meaningful in her eight years on the city council. She is not a leader or an innovator and most of the city sees that even though you don't. Souza would just be a disaster for San Leandro.

Will never vote for wife puppet Mike Katz-Lacabe! His wife, Marga Lacabe, is all of the characters in "One Flew Over the Cuokoo's Nest". Marga is also a fact twisted 24/7 big mouth attention hungry cyber bully!
