Corey Klein won the democratic primary for City Judge yesterday. The losing candidate, Scott Nigro, did not have the official endorsement of the LB Democratic Committee, but the word on the street was that he was their man. And some associated with the LB Dems, like writer Ruth Bernstein Banschik, has excoriated Klein here and elsewhere. Corey has done plenty of digging, defending and fighting for the current democrat administration, so this remains a puzzle. In the meantime, Jay Gusler, no friend of anyone in power now or in the past, so it seems, attacked Klein in SeabytheCity and apparently also recently sued Klein on behalf of Long Beach taxpayers for, it appears, conducting a private law practice while working for the City and other things. See copy of lawsuit here>> Scan.
So, moving forward we have Klein as candidate for City Judge, who may have improperly signed a settlement agreement with Haberman, who has been representing and helping the democrat administration, but who now appears on the outs with them and who is being sued by a resident, running against republican Ted Hommel, his former co-worker and boss(?), who also sued the City last year for $1 million for violating his civil rights by firing him.
