  1. People of little Tokyo need to know: SEX SCANDAL”… PEOPLE IN COUNCIL DISTRICT 14 NEED TO KNOW. Anyone with a sister or mother should read this. Yes…everyone. I have no political agenda…just stating the truth. Los Angeles City Councilman Jose Huizar is not telling the truth. He is trying to say his relationship with Francine Godoy was consensual to continue his career,as many politicians have done before him. If the truth came out, which is that he used his position to harass and torment this poor girl, his life/marriage would be over.The fact is, Francine Godoy was a victim and is now being portrayed as a home wrecker because huizar “admitted to an affair” which just isn’t true.

    People are just stuck on her salary…in the public sector, if a guy over 7 years worked his way up the corporate ladder, it wouldn’t be a big deal. When she was first brought on, she was hired well below her skill set. Once that was noticed, she was given more responsibility and pay to retain her. All this girl did was work hard and kept her honor the whole time. Anonymous posters on blogs who made up rumors years ago were just jealous of her and in competition.

    Don’t be fooled …Jose is a scum bag. FYI Huizar’s poor wife (who is also a victim) knows the truth but is remaining silent because she needs him to work to support her and their kids. Sincerely-someone who knows
