Amidst mounting political pressure and concern for patient safety, Orange County supervisors Tuesday effectively curbed the power and influence of Supervisor Janet Nguyen over CalOptima, the county’s managed health care plan for nearly 500,000 poor and elderly patients, by appointing Supervisor Todd Spitzer to the CalOptima board, according to the Voice of OC.
Janet’s pals at the OC Political blog have tried to obfuscate her corrupt activities at CalOptima by trying to bring up ObamaCare but the reality is that Janet blew it – and the CalOptima mess is going to make for great hit pieces when Jose Solorio faces off against her for the 34th State Senate District – which is chock full of seniors who depend on CalOptima’s services. Senior voters actually vote, which is more bad news for Janet.
The reality is that CalOptima was fine before Janet took it over and now it is a disaster.
The Voice of OC also reported that at least one additional Supervisor will be joining him on the CalOptima board, presumably to clean up Janet’s mess and keep her from screwing up CalOptima any further.
