Why would a bunch of guys at a real estate developer (Sares-Regis) each donate the maximum amount to Orange County Supervisor Andrew Do’s reelection campaign? Fishy isn’t it? Click here to see for yourself.
Has Do forgotten what happened to Son Truong Nguyen? Remember him? He was convicted and sentenced in February of this year for illegally reimbursing contributors for Janet Nguyen’s 2012 Orange County Board of Supervisors election campaign.
What did this guy do? Between Nov. 2, 2011, and Jan. 30, 2012, Son Nguyen illegally reimbursed campaign contributors for Janet Nguyen’s 2012 Orange County Board of Supervisors election on 10 different occasions. He reimbursed a total of $13,300.
Son Nguyen, 39, Fountain Valley, ended up pleading guilty to 10 misdemeanor counts of unlawful contribution. He was sentenced to three years of informal probation, had to contribute $5,000 to Victim Witness Emergency Fund, had to perform 40 hours of community service in lieu of jail, and was prohibited from being involved in any political campaigns during the duration of his probation. He was also required to pay a $20,000 fine to the General Fund of the State of California within three months of his plea date to resolve the Fair Political Practices Commission’s (FPPC) proactive investigation, according to the OCDA.
Don’t forget that Do was once Janet Nguyen’s bag man. Lord knows what she made him do over the years. Whatever the two of them did will probably never be known as Do won’t risk talking – that will only doom him and Janet to who knows how many years in jail. This might be why they have had a falling out and no longer talk. Each has to be deathly afraid that the other might snitch.
Do has tried to clean up his act as the County Supervisor in the First District. But fishy campaign contributions are not going to help his image.
Do is being challenged this November by Santa Ana City Councilwoman Michele Martinez.
