How TMZ Got the Shot of the Week!

8/11/2007 4:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The mayor of Los Angeles isn't the biggest star in Hollywood, but being embroiled in a politically fueled adultery scandal with a TV reporter helps boost your TMZ cred -- big time! Say cheesy!
Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa hasn't been filmed with his "other woman," suspended Telemundo reporter Mirthala Salinas, until Ivan, a TMZ staffer, encountered the tabloid twosome at a San Fernando Valley mall -- and got the video on his cell phone! Ya nevah know what you'll find at the mall!

Check out how it all went down ... behind the scenes at TMZ in our morning meeting.

The mayor is classless. He made a fool out of himself by humiliating his wife. And, I presume he is a legal citizen.... too bad. We'd like to send him somewhere .. anywhere .. as for his chickie poo... well, go figure how she gets her stories... her history is well known now ... this is not the first time .. nor the last. Ugh... that guy is a freak!!

Where is the outrage? Are Los Angeles taxpayers so brain dead that no one is booting this devil out of the mayoral office?

Thanks for exposing Antonio Villar and Mirthala Salinas. Good job, Ivan @TMZ.com!

Apparently the Mayor isn't trying to hide this affair otherwise he'd be hidden away in a hotel, NOT walking out in the open, IN A MALL......
While he's having an affair and totally disrespecting his wife, I'm betting that it won't cost him his political career. In fact he'll probably not only be re-elected, but one day he'll win the race for Govenor and the go on to one day be the President. Don't say it can't happen, it's happened before......and not only that but, his wife will probably forgive him and then one day she'll run for office and probably win.
That's just how truly backward we've become.

The mayor will continue to be mayor; however, his chances of being Gov or beyond is ZILCH. The issue is he lacks good judgement and trust which is badly needed in these times. Unfortunately, the slime will not wash off easily and to many, he's the poster boy of bad politics

Lust ruins many promising careers. People can get help if they want it. The first step is "wanting it". I think many people enjoy their lust but keep it wraps, the ones that don't need help. This is a mental disorder when a person will give up everything for the sake of acting out on their lust. It's a terrible illness. I empathize for people who suffer from it.

Ya know, at first I thought that the only thing Pap's did was stick their camera's into celebrity's faces. But ya know, if the pap's started following the politicians with camera's 24/7 maybe, just maybe, we would have HONEST politicians. That would be a good thing!
