Antonio, Immigrants Go MIA

What if they gave a protest rally and no one came, especially the Mayor who stood before them so stridently a year before declaring he cleaned our toilets. We hate to say we told you so.

What a difference a year makes as only a minuscule fraction of the crowds of 2006 turned out at twin protests on Tuesday. And some of those who did became violent, requiring tough action from the LAPD.

One person who was conspicuous by his absence was Mayor Villaraigosa. He was heading off on a trade mission south of the border. And there is no indication that immigration will be discussed with Mexican government officials during the Mayor's trip.

In other Villaraigosa related news the Mayor set tongues wagging at last weekend's state Democratic convention by his unusually low profile and his private meeting with his potential 2010 gubernatorial primary opponent, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom.

To end the day the Mayor got some bad news. His 2003 Council campaign is the subject of a 31 count ethics violation accusation filed Tuesday by the City of Los Angeles Ethics Commission.

Keep up with the Mayor including latest news and video up to the minute at We Clean Your Toilets.
