Don't you think her son is going to be affected by her folly forever? I am not defending all people on the registry, but there are some who have done less damage to a young person than she has.

I really don't care about her or her life. All i know is she is part responsible for allowing all of that low income housing to go up on the west side that in a year or two will be infested with gangs and crime. But then she wants to have an upscale downtown too. Its gonna be hard to get people to buy 2 million dollar condos right next to low income sub housing. I'm glad i live closer to Belmont Shore. Less homeless and no shootings and stabbings ever other day like in Downtown and the west side.

This is a tragic story, regardless of the circumstances. A marriage is dissolving, and there is a child involved. These people will have to deal with the pain and trauma of this for the rest of their lives. As for Suja... her committment to the community has never waivered in my eyes. She has been steadfast in pushing issues that benefit the 2nd district and its residents. She could do just as well without the Lowenthal name, because she is the real deal. It is too bad her marriage is not going to last, but that just means she is like the nearly 50% of all the other marriages. We have no idea the circumstances surrounding this, and should respect their privacy during this time. This is not the time to launch a campaign of character assasination of anyone in that family.

Hopefully, the Lowenthal political machine will cut off this woman from their resources. She got pulled along by their power and now, hopefully, she will be forced to go it alone. What was that whoosh sound? That was the sound of her political career being flushed down the toilet.

Wow Who knows what happened. I see a powerful family putting a full court smear on Suja. It is very typical of big family politics. Just like the Kennedy's. They never did anything wrong. Spin Spin Spin

Sounds strangely similar to Edgar Allen Poe's "Fall of the House of Usher"...

I faced the question of whether to continue in my marriage or ask for divorce at the 13 year mark, and nothing had ever been harder. I knew, though, that so long as I was a good dad, everything else would be fine. Hard as it has been these last five years of separation and divorce, our daughter knows she has two parents who love her for all the world. Everything else after that can be worked out. I'm saddened by the news, but wish His Honor and the Councilwoman well. Each are remarkable, dynamic people. And it also is difficult to go through divorce in any fashion, let alone with people watching and wondering. Good luck in finding agreement over terms and in successfully finding each their own greater happiness. Most of all, may their son come to know that despiute the hard moments, that he has a father and mother who love him for all the world. Knowing each of these fine people, I am confident that will be the case.

50% of marriages fail. How many of the people who have posted here had an affair? Maybe none, maybe you're all too ugly.

Just another opportunity for the mob to tittilate themselves.

No... someone who is responsible took a look at the baseless accusations and opted to act like a grown up and not libel or harrass anyone's character by allowing the dribble to be read.

A conspiracy? Give me a break. Maybe you should put on your aluminum foil baseball hat and run to the highest point on Signal Hill and wait for the mothership to pick you up.

Please remember that families are involved here. An accusation was made and has been rightfully deleted. Unless there is confirmation of the facts, then conjecture and rumors is libel and frankly nobody's business. However, if a city council vote was achieved as a result of a personal liaison for financial benefit (i.e., union raises), then that is entirely another very serious matter that merits criminal investigation and media scrutiny. Tread carefully, political clout and lawyers are parties to this saga.

Where is that person when others are libeled or harassed on these posts? Goes on everyday. I could care less just never have seen 15+ posts vanish after they were posted.
