Definitely read the WebLink above. WE, the taxpayers are paying the $7,500. RAISE she gave her staffer, enabling him to PAY HER for her house she couldn't sell..a form of embezzlement! WE BAILED HER out !!! She has NO limits to her creativity in how she will steal, conive, cheat... zero degree of decency or ethics. She has no shame. I do NOT WANT her setting standards on our very SMALL (5 I think) Alameda County Board of Supervisors!

I think all the legislative staffers got raises. Some of them quite significant, i.e. a lot more then Mary's staffer got. This happened the same time the state agencies were told to reduce head count.
This looks bad but what is even worse is a lady got a $6000 dollar ticket for walking (trespassing) across the railroad tracks in Livermore.
So Mary Hayashi steals $2500 of merchandise from Neiman Marcus plus is known to have stolen items previously, is charged with a felony, and is fined $180. A veterinarian, who probably does more good in one day then Mary has done in her entire life is given a $6000 ticket for taking 2 seconds to walk across railroad tracks.
Where on earth are the judges and district attorneys in this. People are starting to wonder if any justice official has any common sense let alone wisdom.
The mayor of Livermore encouraged the railroad police officer (cinderdick)to ticket this unlucky lady and agreed that the $6000 fine was appropriate in order to make a point on railroad safety awareness day. Seems like the citizens of Livermore ought to recall this idiot or else they really are Liver"morons".

I do think many of you are making too much of this. We're all only human, for heaven's sake. It's not as if her private sector policies contributed to people's deaths, for example. And it's not like she's refusing to level with the American people about what her earnings and taxes have been. And it's not like she's playing the race card by lying about Obama's giving states more flexibility in the way they handle welfare and workfare. Golly, we've moved into an era of hammering the other guy, and I can't figure out how that has come to be. I personally have never hammered anyone.
Mitt -- Always truthful; but sometimes the truth hurts too much and so then you've got to keep matters behind locked doors.

We should elect her President of the US. I think she is right up there with our "liar in Chief". Let's keep electing these people and the more the merrier because the collapse will come quicker. I wonder how they will respond when people with pitchforks are at their front doors?

Bill, you ask where are the judges. You do know her husband is Judge Hayashi in Alameda County, right? There was scandal during their last elections, about co-mingling, sharing personal campaign funds...illegal.
She is corrupt to the core. Some individuals just 'live off the system". that means....living off us! ! !
Mittens, shut up !!! You are proving the liar-in-chief, has idiots for constituents. Anything to keep from talking about jobs and the economy....beyond your abilities, I know. Like Obama said, if 'I can't get unemployment under 8%, I'll be a one-term president. SO right !!

There are many factors other than the economy that I can think of, such as our standing in the world, our national security, our national health, interracial relations, women's rights, education of our children ... but I really can't think of any. You see, I only care about economic matters that affect me, so that other stuff is just so much bunkum. I think everyone in the United States, just like me, should be reduced to the 8% unemployment watermark; the rest of the stuff about governing is just too complex and, honestly, doesn't translate very well into my economic calculations.
We need a proven business leader who will not disclose his past earnings and taxes but who will fire anyone who gets in his way; who stands against career politicians, except the one he selected for his vice presidential candidate; and who will dismantle medicare at the drop of a hat because, hey, it doesn't affect him. Oh, and who stands on the USS Wisconsin and has the guts to call it: we.did.not.buld.this.ship

@ Cholo - I think your question was answered by Crime against taxpayers, i.e. "idiots for constituents". But in this case the liar-in-chief is state assembly speaker John Perez. Whoever Perez says to vote for, the true blue Democrats vote for without question, even if that candidate is Darth Vader.
Not to worry the Republicans are just as stupid as the Democrats. There's just less of them.

I think we should call in the FBI. FBI is who usually is interested in scams and frauds, Id thefts, etc.
It's worth a try, She has been so creative with her assortment of types of fraud and corruption.
The mingling of campaign funds is illegal. FEPPC , Fair Election Political Practices Commission looks in to that behavior...except, this is CA, an all Dem state, so they would probably look the other way.

Why is this crook, Hayashi, even in the discussion regarding political office. Considering the skeptisism regarding all politicians why would anybody even consider voting for this women.
Is she the best the democrats have to offer; a replacement for Nadia? I guess nothing really matters as long as the public employee unions have a democrat they can endorse & vote for that will inturn vote for public employee union contracts that are both unaffordable and unsustainable - birds of a feather....

This isn't a matter of Hayashi being a crook or not. The real question is whether she will aid or hinder the economy. And on this matter, I must tell you that the votes are in. I see an apocalyptic cloud on the horizon which heralds a giant tsunami that is going to wash over us, our children, and our grandchildren.

Again, these are small matters. International affairs, questions of human rights and justice, matters of national health, quality of education,whether a politician pilfers a party dress or not, whether a politician discloses his failure to pay taxes -- these are all chickenfeed compared to the question of unionized public school teacher salaries which are going to overwhelm this entire nation unless we shore up our dikes by reducing these so-called middle class workers' salaries. We can't afford to going on this way, and the waves are crashing higher and higher. The big tsunami is coming, let me tell you.
