LOS ANGELES (CBS) Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is evicting the Occupy L.A. protesters from the City Hall lawn, ordering them to move by Monday.

5. I can't speak about the other mayors on the list,
but Villaraigosa has always been a snake. I was a lifelong Angeleno; I moved away in part because of the corruption in City Hall and the brutality of the police department. You know how everyone is talking now about how journalists in other cities are arresting journalists, or keeping them away from the scenes of the stories? It's only a few years ago that LA cops put several journalists in the hospital, for being present at a May Day picnic where the police rioted.

6. He's finished.
He barely got re-elected last time. He's termed out and he knows that he's politically finished. So he does what every other political has been heading for the exit door does--he sells out!
