The writers and editors at OC Weekly just published their annual list of OC’s Scariest People 2014! Scary People to Avoid in the Dark! Coming in 22nd is 1st District Supervisor, 34th District Senate candidate and FBI suspect Janet Nguyen — our own choice last year for the most corrupt Supervisor on the five-member Board (followup here). The Weekly’s take:
22. JANET NGUYEN
Amazingly, this is Janet Nguyen’s first time on this list, despite a career swarming with scary accomplishments. We’re finally convinced she might be an actual vampire. Think about it: Her social sensibilities are centuries old. She somehow hypnotizes thousands of people to vote for her despite having no accomplishments or fan base. There’s barely any garlic in her Stanton sandwich shop, and somehow, she’s semi-successfully running for state Senate against Jose Solorio despite her mismanagement of CalOptima, Orange County’s medical-care program for the poor and elderly. Supporters are currently under investigation for alleged money laundering to fund her Board of Supervisors campaigns. Has anyone ever seen her wear silver?
Mitigating Factor: Nguyen’s the only person capable of killing the werewolf that is Van Thai Tran.
