Yup. The negative opinion many in the CRA have of Carly Fiorina is because of Chuck DeVore’s characterization of her.

Having met Fiorina in person – she has been groosly underestimated and mis-characterized by the DeVore campaign. But, that’s politics, right? Jam the truth in a corner when it interferes with strategy.

I think Chuck DeVore is a fraud. He is not the Conservative Icon he wants to portray himself as. He is running a taxpayer-subsidized campaign and flip-flopped on tax increases when it became apparent that Chuck DeVore was going to face Carly Fiorina in the primary.

He even chickened out on a campaign promise to oppose Uber-Liberal Republican Abel Maldonado’s confirmation to Lt. Governor.

DeVore had his friends at the Meg County Blog take a shot today – the same blog that has taken $65,000 from Meg Whitman… because I (GASP) asked Chuck DeVore for a job…

DeVore’s responses since then have been vicious and vindictive to say the least and I believe are primarily because I told him no when he asked me to work for him for free. (Which highlights the absurdity of his staff’s “Part-Time” arrangement with the taxpayers)

At the CRA Convention Chuck DeVore told people that I attempted to extort money from him. The evidence? An email I sent to he and Joshua Trevino – which was posted on the Meg County Blog.

The email was on November 8 – and was forwarded to Meg County by DeVore and used in their basis to eject me from their blog.

The money quote: “To that end – I can be retained at a quite reasonable rate or for “projects”. I assume you’re both familiar with my work (ask Doug Ose or Meg Whitman how effective it is)…

Sounds like extortion, right?

If you read the entire email – you’ll realize that DeVore’s current Placer County Chairman was recruited by yours truly! – Even though I refused to help DeVore for free, I found him a volunteer chair.

Despite knowing that DeVore played a role in the attempt by Meg County to destroy my credibility – I approached the DeVore camp in late January in an attempt to reconcile: (I have redacted some of the info and have the original available for proof)

Several of my friends in the Tea Party movement are excited about your campaign. Multiple people, not just tea party and CRA have asked me to help… which I am willing to do.

When I was thrown out of Red County – several people reported back to me that you had made several phone calls relating to people about our conversation in November.

Is it possible for us to patch things up between us? Does it merit any consideration that I went and recruited you a County Chairman?

I would like to help your campaign – and do not take this email to mean I am asking for a paycheck… however, I need to know where you guys stand.

My cell if you don’t have it anymore is 916-316-9570.

Aaron,

There’s nothing to patch up, from our perspective. If you’d like to help Chuck’s campaign, we welcome that — the volunteer infrastructure is active and growing. Thanks for it, Aaron.

Josh – chuck made several phone calls to several people around the time of my ejection from red county. In those calls, he went out of his way to tell people how upset he was with me and how inappropriate our conversation was, etc… Funny, the whole story on that red county deal has not been told… And I will tell my side when I choose to.

Suffice to say, the news of chuck’s phone calls came to me from several people – and even this week, I got called again.

Does it seem unreasonable that I would draw the conclusion that Chuck was getting even with me for some perceived offense? Hence my contact – maybe I was not specific enough in the first email.

Thanks again for the reply, Joshua.

Aaron,

With respect, I have a hard time crediting he-said, she-said reports. The idea that Chuck DeVore would be anything less than direct and forthright rings false — and I’m quite sure he has things on his mind other than your Red County fracas.

All the best,
Josh

Chuck DeVore obviously had the Red County Fracas on his mind at the CRA Convention.

Joshua Trevino basically told this blogger “Up Yours”.

Quoting a previous Blog about DeVore’s Campaign (Referring to State Employees working half time so they can help him):

DeVore says he’s lucky to have supporters like this, he says a “grassroots” campaign like his would never succeed without talented volunteers because he could never afford their services on his budget. He says this is a shining example of democracy.

Because if you ask DeVore for pay – you’ll get accused of extortion.

If that is direct and forthright – then the Meg County Blog is objective journalism…

  1. I’ve never been a fan of Fiorina and the fact that you folks think so highly of DeVore is going to make me take a good look. I may be on the other side of the country from California but in some ways the politics are similar (if anything, California is *better*. Ugh.)
