Did you know that Arnold Zeiderman and Jeff Seaton party together? – they are drinking buddies, every man needs drinking buddies… it is common knowledge that the Moderate Doctor and the Defense Attorney like to tie one on together, and eat pulled pork.
Did you know that Charlene Buckley who has come to Jeff Seaton’s defense on this blog is a Cent Com member and more importantly is on Jeff Seaton’s campaign team?…
… as are two other regular members of the Central Committee.
In Placer, when we were set to endorse in AD-06 – endangered incumbent Beth Gaines made phone calls to Central Committee Members and complained to people that having two Park Brothers on the Central Committee (out of 27 members) was a “bad” conflict of interest. (Beth Gaines and Ted Gaines are both ex-officio members of Placer Cent Com, but the facts don’t matter to electeds.)
Amador has 11 members total. 3 are on Jeff Seaton’s campaign team. I’d lay odds none of them knew 1/10 of what has been laid out here on this blog.
With the Moderate Doctor That’s 37% of the committee – but, it gets better.
Committee member Destigator is the Son-in-Law of Dep Sheriff Gillaspie who has been harassing Jeff Seaton’s opponent constantly. Gillespie is also the Chair of the Amador DSA. Jeff Seaton did Gillaspie’s divorce. (News flash)
Now we are at 44% of the committee before the remaining 55% are contacted. Cozy.
It is also important to note that Jeff Seaton is the go-to guy for the Deputy Sheriff’s Deputies divorce cases. (according to my sources) This explains the nexus for many in the DSA supporting Seaton while city police departments are supporting Steve Hermanson.
The drama surrounding the Central Committee endorsement also includes another bald-faced lie by Arnold Zeiderman, he told former Amador Supervisor Tom Bamert that they were not going to re-consider the endorsement at the meeting. Bamert is well-respected in the community there and not someone you want to enrage by lying.
Why has Arnold Zeiderman gone so far out on a limb for Jeff Seaton? Seaton must be more than a drinking buddy, or there is something coming in to play from outside the paradigm. A commenter on a previous post sheds incredible light on the situation.
The reason why the Amador County Republican Party is pushing to endorse Jeff Seaton is because not only was Arnie Ziedermans son prosecuted for a crime, and as a result has a dislike for the DA’s office, but the Jackson Casino offered the Amador County Republican Party a substantial amount of money. The unconfirmed amount is $100,000.00, which a portion will undoubtedly go towards Seatons campaign. This is why the Amador County Republican Party held a second meeting, closed door, at 10:30 at night so they could pursue their personal agenda.
So, who else is the Jackson Casino trying to “buy votes” from for their attorney in pocket? The local newspaper is also reportedly in Seaton’s pocket…which is why you wont see any negative posts, blogs or articles there.
I have heard it was $10,000. But the rumors are flying like wildfire of some sort of payoff. Remember, Jeff Seaton’s connection to the DSA (doing their divorces, estates, etc), the connection to the casino (taking care of Dalton family legal trouble) and Amador County Republican Party Chairman Arnold Zeiderman’s connection to him as well.
This is starting to read like a cross between True Crime and Deliverance.
