Conservative voters in Orange County have been lining up behind the leading candidate, Robert Ming, for awhile. One of the lesser candidates in that race, Lisa Bartlett, sent out a mailer this week that implied she was endorsed by the Republican Party of Orange County. Here is how OC GOP Central Committee Allan Bartlett reacted to Bartlett’s lie at his blog:
I wanna comment on something Councilwoman Bartlett put on her mailer. It says “the endorsed conservative Republican” along with our party symbol on it. The county party has NOT endorsed in this race. She has flat out lied on her mailer. I think an ethics complaint is in order here. Just another example of consultants lying, cheating, and stealing to win. Shame on them.
We recently caught OC Clerk-Recorder candidate Monica Maddox making the same lie in a slate mailer. Shame on her too! And she has only ben a Republican for a couple of years.
