Will Laura Richardson’s luck follow Arturo Danaire Frazier?


Laura Richardson upon hearing of House Ethics Disciplinary decision

Representative Laura Richardson would be out of luck if she didn’t have bad luck….and as they say, bad luck comes in threes.

First she comes under scrutiny over a foreclosure on her Sacramento home.  She’d received a Washington Mutual loan in excess of $535,000 with no down payment:  http://articles.latimes.com/2010/oct/19/local/la-me-richardson-20101019

Next, she gets reapportioned into a district where she has to run against another Democratic member of the House, Janice Hahn.

Finally, she gets nailed by the House of Representatives on ethics charges and is personally fined $10,000 in the middle of her campaign to retain her seat against Janice Hahn:  http://articles.latimes.com/2012/aug/02/news/la-pn-house-disciplines-rep-laura-richardson-for-ethical-misconduct-20120802

Arturo Danaire Frazier getting down on the dance floor

So now it looks like one of her aides has the same kind of luck.  34 year old Arturo Danaire Frazier of Compton and former Compton City Council aide is rumored to be in the running for Compton City Council.  Here are a couple of the skeletons in his closet that he’ll have to contend with.  Vehicle Code violation definitions:

14601.1. (a) No person shall drive a motor vehicle when his or her driving privilege is suspended or revoked for any reason other than those listed in Section 14601, 14601.2, or 14601.5, if the person so driving has knowledge of the suspension or revocation. Knowledge shall be conclusively presumed if mailed notice has been given by the department to the person pursuant to Section 13106. The presumption established by this subdivision is a presumption affecting the burden of proof.

 14601.5. (a) A person shall not drive a motor vehicle at any time when that person’s driving privilege is suspended or revoked pursuant to Section 13353, 13353.1, or 13353.2 and that person has knowledge of the suspension or revocation.

12500. (a) A person may not drive a motor vehicle upon a highway, unless the person then holds a valid driver’s license issued under this code, except those persons who are expressly exempted under this code.

23109(c) A person shall not engage in a motor vehicle exhibition of speed on a highway, and a person shall not aid or abet in a motor vehicle exhibition of speed on any highway.

23152. (a) It is unlawful for any person who is under the influence of any alcoholic beverage or drug, or under the combined influence of any alcoholic beverage and drug, to drive a vehicle.

About Jan Tucker

The Detectives Diary is an innovative tool combining Private Investigation and Journalism. In 1984, Steve Harvey's Los Angeles Times "Around the Southland" Column entitled Jan Tucker's program of providing low-cost "Opposition Research" services to indigent and working class candidates for public office, "Take Cover: Hired Mudslinger Rides into Town." A 1996 Los Angeles Times article by Henry Chu carried a sub-headline identifying Tucker as a "P.R. Guru." In November 2012, Tucker became Criminal Justice Columnist for Counter Punch Magazine and a commentator for Black Talk Radio. As a private investigator since 1979 and a former First Vice President of Newspaper Guild Local 69, Tucker takes these skills to a new level in the pages of the Detectives Diary with insightful and unique exposures and analysis of history and current events.
