SOB STORY FROM Los Angeles Times

Ludlow, who is black, brought a compelling personal story to his public and union posts. At 9 months old, he was adopted by a white Methodist minister and his wife in Idaho who were longtime activists for a number of social causes. After moving to Los Angeles, he enter the political world and eventually served as Villaraigosa's deputy chief of staff when he served as state Assembly speaker.
Without the sentimental bunk and bad grammar, the brief is Mark Ludlow was deputy chief of staff to current Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villariagosa when Villariagosa was California State Assembly speaker. Ludlow took school workers union dough and union-supplied campaign workers to get himself elected to the Los Angeles City Council. He later resigned council post to become sec-treasure for the union and then was elected to head of it. He now has to resign from that self-same union and is gonna plead on the charges.

Even shorter version: Democrat party in California loses cash cow. Los Angeles Times weeps.
