AD74 Assemblyman and SD2 Supervisorial Candidate Allan Mansoor is getting GOOD on two issues very germane to the District he wishes to lead. Unlike his carpetbagging opponent Michelle Steel, Mansoor has already been very active in opposing Caltrans and OCTA plans to convert at least one traffic lane on the 405 to be a Measure M-funded toll lane. Steel (and other local pols who represent all or part of the Corridor Cities) hasn’t had word one to say in opposition to this awful strategy that use our locally-collected tax funds for a project they were never intended or promised for. OCPB is recommending Allan for the Supervisor’s post being vacated by John Moorlach. Continue reading
Well this one is a head-scratcher. Apparently Supervisor Todd Spitzer has endorsed Michelle Steel, the Los Angeles County carpetbagger running to replace termed out Supervisor John Moorlach in the 3rd District of the Orange County Board of Supervisors, according to a press release you can read below.
Steel has the support of the corrupt cabal that created disgraced former O.C. Sheriff Mike Carona, including Mike Schroeder, who was married to Susan Kang (until he got a DUI and then he dumped her), who works for the OCDA, Tony Rackauckas. It is widely suspected that when Rackauckas retires, Kang will go for his job – and Steel is expected to support that.
But didn’t Rackauckas fire Spitzer? So why would Spitzer want to play footsie with this bunch, when a decent conservative, Assemblyman Allan Mansoor, is also running for the 3rd District? Continue reading

Michelle Steel endorsed by Primary opponent Joe Carchio
Huntington Beach, CA – -Today, Huntington Beach City Councilman Joe Carchio announced his endorsement of Michelle Steel in the 2nd supervisorial district run-off campaign. Carchio was a candidate in the June 3rd Primary.
“Naturally, I am disappointed that I did not make the runoff,” said Councilman Carchio, “I am very excited that a candidate of Michelle Steel’s integrity and ability will appear on the November ballot. I urge my supporters and all the voters of the Second District, to cast their ballot for Michelle Steel for Supervisor.” Continue reading
Bad enough that Michelle Steel is a carpetbagger from Los Angeles County running for the Orange County Board of Supervisors, but over the past few weeks local voters have been bombarded by mailers paid for by the Association of Orange County Deputy Sheriffs (AOCDS).
What do the Deputy Sheriffs expect from their investment in Steel? I would think that would be a raise and even more generous pension benefits. So much for Steel’s self-avowed tax fighting. How does she propose to pay for her schemes?
The reality is that Steel is terribly unqualified to be an Orange County Supervisor. She has been elected to one office – the State Board of Equalization. Her top opponent, Assemblyman Allan Mansoor, has worked as a Council Member in Costa Mesa and as a State Legislator. And previous to his political career he was himself an Orange County Deputy Sheriff. Continue reading
Sangjin Miller Oh, 50, a Republican Buena Park city council member, was convicted on Friday of repeatedly committing perjury on California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) documents to avoid paying child support to his ex-wife. Miller Oh, a real estate developer, was found guilty by a jury of five felony counts of perjury by declaration and faces a maximum sentence of six years and four months in state prison at his sentencing Aug. 22, 2014, in Department W-8, West Justice Center, Westminster, according to the Orange County District Attorney.
Under state law, Oh is immediately suspended from the council and will have to step down permanently when Judge John Adams certifies the verdicts at sentencing, City Manager Jim Vanderpool said. Conviction of certain laws triggers the removal, according to the OC Register.
Here’s the curious part – why did Michelle Steel, a carpetbagging candidate for the Orange County Board of Supervisors, announce her endorsement by Miller Oh on May 2 of this year, as we reported earlier? Miller Oh has been in trouble since 2012 yet Steel accepted and announced his endorsement? Continue reading
Over the weekend, I received notice that the Association of Orange County Deputy Sheriffs union will be sending out its first mailer on behalf of Michelle Steel sometime in the next 24 hours. The union endorsement, shown below, is the most important part.
Given Michelle’s history, it’s not surprising. I’ve known it was only a matter of time before public employee unions started lining up to support her.
In 2006, public employee unions spent hundreds of thousands of dollars opposing my reelection to City Council. That same year, Michelle received multiple $1000+ union contributions to her campaign for BOE. (See the graphic above) Continue reading
