Senator Moorlach Blasts Sidhu Mailers in 68th Assembly District
Senator John Moorlach has issued a statement saying that Harry Sidhu’s “campaign has issued a mailer that is unconscionable, misleading and inappropriate. This campaign methodology is unacceptable. Innuendo and false implication is unseemly, and this Republican is repulsed by it.”
The Sidhu mailer laughably blamed Mayor Steven Choi for an illegal immigration invasion in the city of Irvine, which according to FBI statistics is the safest big city in the nation.
Choi political consultant Jim Nygren said Moorlach’s criticism of Sidhu was well-deserved.
Nygren suggested that the Harry Sidhu of 2016 reflect upon what he said in his 2008 campaign after he twisted the truth about now-Congresswoman Mimi Walters, falsely accusing her of being a liberal.
In that campaign, Sidhu promised to stop negative campaigning and shredded his own hit pieces, stating, “I refuse to play such games, and will not stoop to that level and degree of misleading negative campaigning…our voters deserve better…I am a positive guy. I’m only focusing on positive campaigning.”
“Maybe it’s time for Harry to get that shredder out again,” Nygren concluded.
