My apologies for giving Gustavo Jeopardy the keys to the NoonerMobile yesterday. I wish I could blame it on a late election night, but as you know, only college kid election workers stay up for results these days. 

Here are the aliases of our statewide constitutional officers and legislative leaders:

  • Jerry Brown: Manuel Smash
  • Gavin Newsom: Ignacio Kill
  • Debra Bowen: Raul Jeopordy
  • Kamala Harris: Armando Furtive
  • John Chiang: Alberto Jeopardy
  • Bill Lockyer: Carmelo Threat
  • Dave Jones: Sandro Sly
  • Tom Torlakson: Luis Sly
  • Darrell Steiberg: Maximiliano Menace
  • Bob Huff: Lorenzo Furtive
  • John Perez: Diego Menace
  • Connie Conway: Javier Jeopardy

Meanwhile, as a third woman comes out alleging harassment, the drumbeat for Bob Filner to ride off into the sunset continues with a new poll

Bob Filner job approval:

  • Approve: 28%
  • Disapprove: 64%

Should Bob Filner remain in office or resign?

  • Remain: 24%
  • Resign: 69%

[Survey USA; auto-telephonic land and cell; 700 adults; +/- 3.5% to 4.3%] 

The San Diego Democratic Party is meeting again tonight, and you can bet the vote won't be deadlocked at 24-24 following the lawsuit and two other women coming forward. Remember, last week's tied vote on whether to call for his resignation was before we had specific alleged victims and details.

There was a summit of Bob Filner's staff on Sunday, reports the UTSD's Trent Siebert.

I can imagine the conversation:

"Are you going to tell him?"

"No, you're paid more, you tell him."

"I'm not going to tell him, he's got the goods on me for stealing those America's Finest City mugs to give to my Comi-Con friends from out of town."

"Walt's not here. Let's make him tell him." 

And, after the jump, THE NOONER has obtained a photo allegedly sent by Mayor Filner to an undisclosed number of women.

Pressure mounts for $2 per pack tax on cigarettes [Nanette Miranda @ KGO] - "Proponents of a $2 a pack tax on cigarettes say it would actually help California smokers, despite the wallop to their wallets. Health groups are ramping up their pressure on state lawmakers for a $2-per-pack cigarette tax in California. Supporters say it hasn't been raised in 15 years, yet the cost to treat tobacco-related illnesses for the millions on Medi-Cal -- the state's health care program for the poor -- keeps rising. The money would also boost anti-smoking campaigns . . . While Democrats will be using supermajority powers to get the tobacco tax through, the Governor has been reluctant to overuse it."

TALL ORDER: GOP names California chief for 50-state drive [Martin Wisckol @ OCR] - "The Republican National Committee named a 23-year-old as its California director Wednesday. It was part of the party's unveiling of a 50-state effort to rebuild its get-out-the-vote operation, which has deteriorated since President George W. Bush lived in the White House. Leading the RNC effort in California and coordinating with the state GOP will be Clinton Soffer, who began his professional political career in 2008 working on two San Diego City Council races and most recently was a City Council aide in there."

FALSE AND CONSEQUENCES: KTVU producers fired over Asiana pilots' fake names [Matier and Ross @ SFChron]

NUTS! Plague found in squirrel; parts of Angeles National Forest closed - "Los Angeles County health officials confirmed this week that a trapped ground squirrel tested positive for plague, and as a precaution parts of the Angeles National Forest near Wrightwood have been closed."

AD52: Inland Empire runoff for California Assembly seat threatens Democratic supermajority [Sharon McNary @ SCPR] - "In a nine-candidate primary to fill the vacant 52nd Assembly District seat, Ontario Mayor Paul Leon and Pomona City Councilman Freddie Rodriguez emerged as the top two candidates. They will face off in a special election on Sept. 24 in an unusual runoff: A nonpartisan versus a Democrat. The election will be closely watched because the Democratic supermajority in the Assembly could be affected by the outcome."

AD54: Supervisor's son enters L.A.-area assembly race and family business [Jean Merl @ LAT] - Sebastian "Ridley-Thomas, 25, said he will run for the 54th Assembly District post currently held by Assemblywoman Holly Mitchell (D-Los Angeles). Mitchell plans to seek the state Senate district seat that opened with the recent election of Curren D. Price Jr. to the Los Angeles City Council. If she wins that post in a special election this fall, as many observers expect, there will be another special election to fill her seat in the Legislature's lower house."
