Interview With FilmLadd on FTR Radio Tonight at 9 PM
Update: Context/Backstory Added

— Ace

I interviewed Ladd for a podcast on Tuesday, about Gangsta Moll Janice Hahn.

For those of you who didn't see the previous mention: Janice Hahn, running as the Democratic candidate for District 36 in California (for Jane Harman's vacated seat), hired a bunch of "gang intervention specialists," aka gangsters, to talk to other gangsters, and tell them gang-banging is bad.

The ad got a lot of attention, most of it bad, for being "racist" and "misogynist."

This is a real life election that's happening in three weeks and no one knows about it.

I interviewed him about the race, the controversy, and the fallout.

Also, below the fold, FoxNews 11 (in California) did a report on Hahn's "gang intervention" project. It seems... unwise. Also, the NRCC put up a website called HahnGotMeOut.com, featuring videos of gang-bangers arrested again by the police, telling the cops that Hahn placed calls to get them out of jail last time.

They're playing it on FTR Radio tonight at 9PM Eastern. I think that's 6PM Pacific, and maybe 8PM Central, and I honestly have no idea what's going on with Mountain, and I'm not good at math and you should probably do your own arithmetic on an ad hoc basis.

He tells me that reaction to his ad has been furious, even in Berlin, and even in 1945.

At the time of publication of this post, Republican challenger Craig Huey had not yet spent taxapayer money to send gangstas to waterparks.

I really would like to thank Ben Howe for taking his time to record this for me.

Oh: And lookie here, Colbert played the ad.

He made the shocking, inventive comedic observation that "it's not racist, if you look past all the racism, to see beyond to the misogyny."

Jon Stewart just emailed me to speak in a "black voice."

I read your post and I now know nothing more than I did before doing so. 

 In fact, I read it twice.  Mostly because after reading it the first time I was annoyed that I had no idea what you are talking about.  The second reading was equally beneficial.

 I have no idea who this is that you are interviewing, or what you might be talking to him about.

I tried. 

 But reading the posts?  

Just not worth it.

I've had a damn 'nuff of Colbert. Our government is full of clowns and there's both plenty to laugh at as well as cry about. This S.O.B. and his fucking Super PAC are deliberately making a mockery of our system and it pisses me off.

35 Janice Hahn is an LA city councilwoman who apparently paid gang members to serve as "gang interventionists" and even went so far (allegedly) as intervening on their behalf when they were arrested.

Film Ladd is Ladd Ehrlinger, a filmmaker and big tweeter. He also figured in the Weiner Twitter madness.
