The reason this raving lunatic is still in office is the same as why Marion Barry was re elected in DC! Slapsy Maxie represents one of the most gang and drug infested totally black areas of Los Angeles. The literacy rate there can't even be measured. This area repeatedly elects known convicted criminals one was even in jail and was re elected! Everything is OK as long as you are black and one of the homeys.. nothing else matters! She plays and uses the race card as her patented excuse for all her crimes..
