A new phone poll of voters in the 69th Assembly District, conducted by Democratic candidate Tom Daly’s campaign, shows that newcomers Julio Perez and Francisco Barragan need to drop out now, or they are going to jeopardize the election of a Latino to represent this heavily Latino district, which is currently represented by Jose Solorio.
The OC GOP machine has Supervisorial candidate Deborah Pauley in her sights. The results are predictable. They are hammering her from all sides and now the OC Political blog, which is comprised of OC GOP insiders, is reporting that “In the 3rd Supervisorial District race, she has pulled neither the Ballot Designation Worksheet nor her Declaration of Candidacy form.”
This came after the OC Weekly reported that “on the night of February 5, when Pauly and her husband, James, enjoyed a night out at Mr. Stox in Anaheim. James drove down Katella Avenue and into a Orange Police Department DUI checkpoint run by Officer Armando Plascencia, the Wilt Chamberlain of DUI arrests in California. To evade the checkpoint, James swerved into a driveway, crashed his Porsche onto the curb, and got stuck.” Continue reading
I received the post today from an anonymous source who entitled it “OC’s Daly Watch.” This watchdog has done a lot of homework – exposing Orange County Clerk-Recorder Tom Daly, who is also a Democratic candidate for the 69th Assembly District, for his money-wasting ways. Warning – you might be shocked by this expose!
Shortly after the Orange County Board of Supervisors order demotions and pay cuts, Clerk-Recorder Thomas Frances Daly promotes his Assistant Clerk-Recorder Renee Ramirez without competitive recruitment and with questionable merits. Continue reading
When U.S. Rep. John Campbell failed this week to get the OC GOP endorsement, by one vote, who would have figured that the culprit was a veritable Benedict Arnold? That’s right – Republican 69th Assembly District candidate Robert Hammond, who was endorsed by Campbell, failed to return the favor, according to the OC Political blog. Hammond voted AGAINST endorsing Campbell.
This of course makes Hammond an honorary “Agranista,” as Campbell is running against liberal Irvine Mayor Sukhee Kang, who is of course part of Democratic Irvine Council Member Larry Agran’s “Agranista” cabal. I am sure Agran and Kang will be sending Hammond a couple of gift baskets. Continue reading
The desperate Democratic Party of Orange County issued a press release today celebrating the fact that U.S. Rep. John Campbell failed, by one vote. to garner the endorsement of the Republican Party of Orange County. The release was written by the DPOC’s 26-year old executive director, Nick Anas, who failed miserably as the head of Irvine Council Member Beth Krom’s campaign against Campbell in 2010.
But – Campbell was rejected in part because he was “one of 15 House Republicans who voted in December 2010 to lift the “don’t ask, don’t tell” ban on gays serving openly in the military, an issue that rankled his party’s social conservatives,” according to the Daily Pilot.
So of course that means that the DPOC is celebrating today because homophobic Republicans rejected Campbell’s endorsement. Nice. Continue reading
