Scary, isn’t it.
The left-wing media hates the Placer County Republican Central Committee. They had Tom Hudson in leg irons and an Orange jumpsuit before the FPPC came in and said, “We have no evidence” (bureaucrat speak for you did nothing wrong).
Like the Chris Beckman “whistle-blowing” against Robert Weygandt and Kirk Uhler – there is no there, there.
Now Jim Ruffalo has it on good authority that Tom Husdon is on the outs and there is a Lynch Mob forming.
Quotting Ruffalo: “In fact, we’re reliably told that several high-power Republicans are starting to lean on Hudson.”
Really? Who? Assemblymembers? Congressman McClintock? That would be news to me, Hudson or George Park(s) my Brother and First Vice-Chair of the Central Committee. (Note the spelling please, Jim)
It’s probably just coincidence, but Hudson’s Facebook site — which had been open to one and all for viewing in order to see just how high-powered his “friends” are — now is restricted to viewing. And the California Republican Assembly Web site, which had listed Hudson in several places, now has grayed-out the spots where his name once was able to be viewed.
Aside from Ruffalo’s cheap shot over the security settings on his personal Facebook account, Tom Hudson is a regional Vice-Chairman for the California Republican Party itself. The By-Laws and customary traditions when you hold CRP office dictate you minimize your affiliations with groups whose membership are a subset.
Had Ruffalo done some research, he’d have spelled George’s name correctly and known about the CRP By-Laws and its’ affect on volunteer club titles.
I am looking for some honesty and journalistic integrity here – we all know the FPPC story was pushed from one end of the state to the other by disgruntled consultants. However, was this column more about the annoyance that the Central Committee was exhonerated and has over $43,000 in the bank?
AJ editor Deric Rothe was treated far better by the criminal justice system and he is a convicted felon for Pete’s sake!
P.S. On a personal note, Ruffalo goes on to suggest that Hudson will resign and George Parks will take over – read:
But I won’t be surprised if he steps down as chair, remains on the executive board and has somebody such as George Parks assume the chairmanship.
Of course, if that happens, look for Hudson’s lips to move whenever the new chairman speaks. …
Anyone that knows George Park knows he is no one’s sock puppet. Mr. Ruffalo needs to use more than Auburn electeds / Political club members as his sources.
