As I watched Liz Cheney accept her Profiles In Courage award from the Kennedy Library, I reflected on her sense of greater good. Greater than herself or party. Then I watched Nancy Pelosi’s acceptance when she was given the same award a few years ago. Pelosi made it all about everyone around her, not herself. She thanked her colleagues and the teams of people surrounding her. Lindsey Horvath makes it all about Lindsey Horvath. Your latest mailer is a complete manipulation of the truth. You wordsmith through your prior support of defund movements. Some might call me a cynic for saying this mailer was written by your appointee to the PSC. You are not a profile in courage, you are profile in cowardice and political opportunism. You are a lapdog of the authoritarianism of the left which is as toxic as the authoritarianism of the right.
I challenge you to listen to Nancy Pelosi’s words and engage in some humble introspection and recognize that she is the polar opposite of what you represent.
You will not have the profile in courage to engage in an honest discussion with me, or likely anyone who doesn’t engage in sycophancy.
Where did you get the fake statistic that you ushered in an 80% reduction of homelessness in West Hollywood? It’s a lie, and that makes you a liar.
Weak. That’s why you had nothing better to say than to call opponents of your PSC commission racist, and call my commentary inappropriate.
You are not the moral conscience of West Hollywood. You are its public servant.
Publishers Note: Lindsey Horvath’s claim to have moved 80% of the homeless off the streets of West Hollywood cannot be supported with data. WEHOville was contacted by a resident who has put in a question to the City Clerk and City Staff to ask if Horvath’s claim can be substantiated. This resident was told to do a Public Records Request. WEHOville also did a Public Records Request to obtain any information or correspondence to substantiate Horvath claims. Neither the resident or WEHOville has received a response to these claims. In fact, the city is now pursuing the purchase of the Holloway Motel to create a homeless base and services center at La Cienega and Santa Monica Blvd.
If Horvath claims were true the City of West Hollywood should put out a report to take credit as a City. Horvath is but one vote on the City Council and no other Council members are making this claim of West Hollywood’s homeless success story.
