Remember when Troy Edgar’s pal Brett Barbre got caught collecting nomination signatures for the OC Clerk-Recorder’s race after the 5 pm deadline, while at the OC Voter Registrar’s office? They caught all this on video but it looks like this less than dynamic duo is not letting it go just het.
“Barbre called Kelley’s decision a “ticky tack” ruling, and said he’ll challenge it in court. Another last-minute effort? Barbre said Friday that the suit would be filed Monday – the final day to do so, according to Kelley, as reported by the OC Register.
So Edgar, who is a Los Alamitos Councilman, has no problem wasting taxpayer resources on a ridiculous court challenge when he and Barbre were caught red-handed?
Reportedly some of the witnesses can’t wait to testify against Edgar. And I hear that a lady was helping Barbre to collect signatures but her name did not appear on the back of the nomination form. No bueno! Those signatures should be invalidated – and I am told she is visible on video footage that will surely end up in court.
Several other candidates will be challenging the incumbent Clerk-Recorder, Hugh Nguyen, including Monica Maddox, Gary Pritchard and former school board member Steve Rocco.
