Many of you regular readers of this blog have read me write more than a few times about my expulsion from Red County. I got expelled because I was honest about working for Steve Poizner.
Matt Cunningham is one of the partners in Red County – he is a well-connected member of the “Orange County Mafia”. The OC Mafia basically control the California GOP.
Cunningham is a reputed “conservative” activist. He was in Jon Fleischman’s wedding for example, and he has known several OC legislators since they were in College.
Somewhere, the quest for a paycheck trumped his Conservative Activist background.
The Friends for Fullerton’s Future Blog just opened up Cunningham again – finding a $30,000 contract for more Government Work. Here’s the deal – it is not wrong, just hypocritical for Cunningham to be doing this – and when you read the blog and the contract itself – you’ll see that Cunningham is sucking at the government teet for doing little or nothing.
Cunningham’s Partner – Chip Hanlon is getting sued by the FINRA and the SEC for fraud. Hanlon had also had his license to practice financial planning revoked in 2009 and a Bankruptcy around that time as well – explaining why the Red County Blog was sold to Meg Whitman.
Add to this, the previous revelations that Cunningham raked in over $200,000 from the first five commission – the Rob Reiner thing known as prop 10 – and you have a pattern of hypocricy.
The point? Matt Cunningham railed against Prop 10 for a long time before it passed. Chip Hanlon self-righteously bloveated against paid blogging.
Still others here locally seized on the self-righteous cannon and libel of the above two to use in their “case” against some of us locally.
So – some tried to use Fraud at the CRA convention and also used the rantings of two fruadsters from the OC to “reform” things? Epic Fail.
