Even though he swore an oath to uphold and defend the United States Constitution, and by extension the California state constitution, he has abandoned this oath to appoint two illegal aliens to two city commissions in Huntington Park.
He also routinely ignores the concerns and plights of residents in the city, many of whom complain about the trash in streets and on lawns. Residents within the city complain that they cannot find adequate parking, in large part because there is no code enforcement in their community,
Of course, this lawlessness and radicalized indifference to authority is not a recent phenomenon.
Pineda offended Democratic Party leaders earlier this year, when he published campaign fliers claiming that the Democratic Party had endorsed him along with Graciela Ortiz, Marilyn Sanabria, and Mayor Karina Macias.

Los Angeles County Democratic Party Statement on Deceptive Huntington Park City Council Election Mailer
LOS ANGELES – Los Angeles County Democratic Party Chair and California Democratic Party Vice Chair Eric C. Bauman released the following statement regarding a deceptive candidate mailer distributed in the Huntington Park City Council race:
“A mailer that recently went out to voters in Huntington Park completely misrepresents which candidates have been endorsed by the Los Angeles County Democratic Party. Endorsement by the LACDP carries significant weight and no candidate should lie or mislead voters regarding the Democratic Party’s endorsement.
“The LA County Democratic Party has endorsed Graciela Ortiz, Rosa Perez, and Marilyn Sanabria for the upcoming March 3, 2015 election. Johnny Pineda has NOT been endorsed by the LACDP and should NOT be included in any communication listing the ‘Los Angeles County Democratic Party Official Endorsements.’
“We demand that Mr. Pineda stop attempting to deceive Huntington Park voters and cease and desist the use of the LACDP logo in all future voter communications. Further, we demand that Mr. Pineda refrain from using any language that may be construed to imply that he has received the endorsement of the LA County Democratic Party or the California Democratic Party, in all further communications from his campaign.”

The Los Angeles County Democratic Party (LACDP) is the official governing body of the Democratic Party in the County of Los Angeles and works in cooperation with the State and National Democratic Committees. LACDP is the largest local Democratic Party entity in the United States, representing more than 2.4 million registered Democrats. Endorsements issued by the LACDP in local and municipal races become the official endorsements of the California Democratic Party. For more information, visit www.lacdp.org.
I contact Van Tamom yesterday about this press release. Tamom affirmed that Pineda stop sending out the deceptive mailers, But as everyone knows in politics, there is no unringing the bell. Pineda sent out the mailers and informed Huntington Park voters that he was endorsed by the Los Angeles County Democratic Party.
Is it any surprise, then, that Pineda ignores the rule of law in other matters, too? Should residents be surprised by the disturbing rise of crime in the city, from loitering and vandalism, to gun robberies and even major fires in the industrial core?
Johnny Pineda is a Democratic Party rogue, and his shocking indifference to the rule should come as no surprise once residents realize that he lied to them in order to get elected.
