Open Letter to Doug LaMalfa – Apology

Update 4/21/2011 – I was made aware of a LaMalfa blog post where he took a cheap shot at my brother. I meant what I wrote in this post – but apparently Mr. LaMalfa did not believe me or he decided to renew hostilities. Unbelievable.

Click here to see the cheap-shot in question.

Many who read this blog remember that I went after now Senator Doug LaMalfa with the fury of a vandal warrior.

I don’t apologize for the political disagreements – that’s part of the game.

This is being written because I went too far when I lit up Doug LaMalfa. The writings were over the top and personal in nature.

I allowed my issues with people associated with Mr. LaMalfa cloud my judgement in what was written.

Even political opponents deserve better than what I wrote about him. The posts were removed after LaMalfa won the primary and I had considered writing this post for several months.

Irregardless of what happens in the near or farther future related to political battles (I am sure we’ll be on opposite sides of) – this apology to Sen LaMalfa stands in perpetuity.

Grassroots activism is still alive.

Even though the State CRA did not endorse in either the AD-05 race or the SD-04 race, it did not stop our members from making an impact for the club’s favorites.

By now, insiders are done buzzing over the 16.4% blowout loss by Rick Keene – losing to Doug LaMalfa in SD04.

The post-mortems and recriminations will go on for a while, but what is known is this:

Rick Keene won Placer County by 3.74% vs losing by 16.4% district-wide.

Andy Pugno won Placer County by 46.58% vs 43.50% in Sacramento County.

Members of the Placer CRA walked precincts (including this blogger) in the portions of each district that overlapped Placer County.
