Recently Chuck DeVore had his surrogates initiate an attack against Todd Spitzer. Spitzer is a former Assemblyman as is DeVore. In a large county like Orange, being a county supervisor is almost a step up from the Assembly – especially for a Republican. First off, you’re not in the permanent minority and second, there are no term-limits.
The nexus of the attack was regarding Union money that Todd Spitzer has taken for his campaign.
Similar to some of the inane attacks going on up here in Placer – it appears that Todd Spitzer is the victim of “Projection”. Projection is the psychological term for someone that attempts to assign their own bad behavior to others.
It seems DeVore got caught tossing bricks in a glass house. Whoops.
Start off with the fact that Chuck DeVore got sued. Whoops. Sounds like the boys of summer don’t include Mr. DeVore.
A closer look in to the meelee shows “Fiscal Conservative” Chuck DeVore up to his $#(^* in debt. I guess it is a good thing that DeVore decided to attack me publicly rather than hire me – I’d likely be on his creditor’s list. Note that DeVore was able to skate on over $160,000 in debt in the settlement plan… his vendors probably didn’t get much at all.
Then, there is this little jewel from a local union leader in Orange County:

I have been the PAC Director of my union, Orange County Professional Firefighters Association Local 3631, since January, 2001.
In that time I have interviewed literally hundreds of candidates seeking our endorsement.
I am dismayed by Chuck Devore’s challenge to Todd Spitzer given that Mr. Devore has sought the endorsement of my union on two separate occasions.
The first time in 2002 when he was a candidate for Irvine City Council and then in 2004 as a candidate for the State Assembly during the Primary Election against his GOP opponent Cristi Cristich.
Chuck DeVore in his usual style has been assailing Todd Spitzer for being an impure Republican with his “Union Money”. But, that didn’t stop Chuck DeVore from receiving $6400 of said money in the past.
Playing follow-the-money is getting old, let me tell you.
As a side note to my current expose’: Chuck DeVore endorsed Karen England for CRA President along with the fraud and the CRA slate Karen brought with her. I guess that, the campaign debt and the union money circle is a great three-piece set.
