Please refer to page four of the embedded .pdf to see the 26-7 vote in the State Senate. (NOES (7)—Senators Aanestad, Denham, Ducheny, Florez, Runner, Wyland, and Yee.)
That’s right. Conservative “Icon” Chuck DeVore tweeted while he was abstaining in the legislature the day of Maldo’s first Confirmation hearing…
@ejschultz3 Teamwork – the Assembly GOP Caucus decided to support Maldonado.
The Man who would be the next Tom McClintock, just ain’t it. Abstaining is the same thing as voting to confirm Maldonado. I don’t buy the notion of trying to grab middle ground. McClintock would have voted no.
Nice – and DeVore participates in throwing Sam Aanestad – a true conservative and someone who endorsed him for US Senate under the bus…
Carly Fiorina made sure convention attenders got a look at the hypocricy from Chuck DeVore.
I think this particular action by the Republicans in the State Assembly is deplorable and DeVore proves that he walks in lock-step with leadership, playing both sides while portraying himself as a maverick.
As a result of the Republican leadership – they have assured that Abel Maldonado will get millions of dollars worth of Air Time while people are getting their absentee ballots in the mail. (Maldo’s confirmation 2.0 is going down in May)
