A key point – Travis Allen’s rally only drew a few hundred people.
A second key point – Travis Allen is dead last in fundraising
Then the remainder of the article was about Travis Allen, Gavin Newsome and Antonio Villariagosa’s #METOO issues.
If you watch the video clip with an open mind, there is no way you could ask for worse coverage. The TV station gave Travis Allen far more than soundbytes in their coverage, making it pretty difficult to claim that it was edited down too far. The quote from a Travis Allen supporter, though she was trying to help only re-emphasized the documented sexual harassment issues he has.
Cox is also blasting Allen for previously supporting Democrats “with a long history of giving contributions and supporting Democrats like Gavin Newsom, Barbara Boxer and Jerry Brown,” said Tim Rosales, Cox’s campaign manager.
Allen admitted to contributing money to California Democrats.
“Actually, this is very true,” he said. “When I was a business owner — and I still am, I own an investment advisory firm and I’ve been running my company since 2001 — I went to a number of events at the request of clients and friends. And this is what started my political career because I listened to those Democrats.”
Got it? All it took was his Uncle, former OC Dem Party Chair Frank Barbaro to get him to write out fat checks to democrats. The rest is a spin fail.
Lastly, both stories make clear reference that Travis Allen is claiming the bi-partisan investigation in to his sexual harassment issues was all some sort of democrat smear campaign. Not a good optic for the California electorate.
Somehow, Travis Allen took what should have been a positive and let it get completely turned around on him! #EPICFAIL.
(P.S. I guess this event didn’t work out so well for Mr. Allen who is dead last in fundraising)
