Do you know who James Corbett is? He is a conservative Democrat running against the ethically challenged Republican Diane Harkey, in the 73rd Assembly District. Corbett is a long shot but he could have had a great shot at the seat, if the long awaited trial in federal court accusing her and her husband of defrauding and abusing the elderly as part of their family’s business had started before the Nov. 6 election.
Unfortunately the Harkeys’ trial was delayed until after absentee ballots went out. That about sunk Corbett’s boat. But that doesn’t mean we should let Harkey get a free pass! I have been after her for many years. In fact a recent OJ blog post referenced my past work on this subject. She needs to go – now more than ever!
