AD06 Update – So Many People Got Screwed Over Today, I Can’t Keep Track…

Let’s Catch Everyone up.

A few days ago, it got out that recent entrant and rumored Team Gaines recruit Kevin Hanley was attempting to recruit staff for his AD06 campaign. The would-be staffer was from Auburn. The first endorsement Kevin Hanley announced was from Auburn, though the gentleman lives in Rocklin.

Some speculated that Ted and Beth Gaines would endorse Kevin Hanley. We even did on this blog, however, a couple of weeks ago we had become convinced that Team Gaines was going to gravitate to the strongest anti-south-placer candidate they could.

Mind you, Congressman Tom McClintock is alleged to be endorsing Kevin Hanley.

But Today, Ted Gaines endorsed the Republican (who you will have to vote for first before you find out what’s in) – Cristi Nelson. We do know that Cristi Nelson is a social liberal and a lawyer.

Did the Gaines make a deal with Cristi Nelson in order to get support for their planned runs in 2018, 2019 and 2020? Or was it as simple as sssssssteve Davey and Dave Titus needing to line up their next jobs in the capitol?

Ironically, Kevin Kiley, the third viable AD06 candidate is also a Lawyer. (BTW – Bill Halldin is NOT a Lawyer)

Today, Mr. Kiley also announced that he hired Dave Gilliard as his consultant. This would be Dave Gilliard’s second 30-something client. (although Assemblymember James Gallagher is on the downhill side of 30 as opposed to the 30-year-old Kiley)

So, Kevin Hanley got screwed. We know that.

Team Gaines has split up. Gilliard went to Kiley (who he would not have considered until recently) and Ted went to Cristi Nelson.

Why would Ted Gaines endorse before the incumbent assembly-member?

Beth Gaines? Though AD06 is the seat she currently represents, she could have ether gotten confused in all the moves or is waiting to make sure she has rehearsed all of her talking points thoroughly before endorsing Cristi Nelson. (who, did we mention is a social liberal?)

The Gaines duo are now on their fourth heir-apparent in the AD06 endorsement Carousel. (Titus, Sigg, Hanley and Now Cristi Nelson – maybe they will endorse Suzanne Jones and Gabriel Hydrick by the time we are done, too?) This is going to make their former Tea-Party base even angrier.

So – it looks like the Gaines just flipped almost everyone in local government in South Placer County the bird as well. I am not sure how their decision to endorse an un-vetted unknown candidate with fundraisers comprised of 6 person host committees could be seen any other way?

Is Tom McClintock considering endorsing Cristi Nelson now? (Because I don’t see him noted anywhere on Kevin Hanley’s website) Were McClintock to endorse Nelson, he’d be one candidate behind the Gaines on the endorsement carousel.

Kevin Kiley hired Dave Gilliard and Gilliard’s fundraiser of choice John Bovee. That likely means there were other shoes that dropped.

The bottom line here appears as follows: Dave Gilliard needed a candidate. Team Gaines needed a candidate. They found their candidates and a bunch of people got screwed in the process.

Tom has written some books, just look at his Campaign website and you will see them there for sale. I even have some of his past efforts, signed.

I, like many activists supported Tom in all his races for California GOP office. I was wrong.

Tom Del Becarro is unfit to lead. I have personally observed his behavior and was at points willfully blind to it.

If you look on the surface – the first reason why he should be shunned as a candidate is the fact that he failed as CAGOP Chairman. He had nearly 3/4 of the delegates of the CAGOP ready to oust him at the point he decided to not run for re-election.

Tom Del Becarro’s legacy to the CAGOP was a divided party that was left in a state of bewilderment and in debt over $1 Million, some say that number was in the $2 million range as invoices and off-the-books debts rolled in en masse.

The uneasy unity that exists in the CRP today is because of two-reasons. The conservative frauds that pulled the levers in the GOP have been relegated to the fringes (Del Becarro amongst them) and some are still trying to cause havoc and chaos to be relevant – thus unifying the remainder against them. Secondly, most of the rational activists in the CAGOP got tired of losing.

I have personally seen chairmen of the CAGOP that used the party as a dating service, a travel service and a book tour.

Contrast this with Duf Sundheim (who actually did his job as CAGOP Chairman) who raised $100 million in the 4 years he was CRP Chairman. That is $102 Million more than Del Becarro.

I have personally seen Mr. Del Becarro so intoxicated that he was staggering through the hallways of the CAGOP Convention. I’ve seen this more than once. I have seen Mr. Del Becarro with more girlfriends than I can count. Even though he was single the entire time he had this revolving door – neither behavior suggests stability. In addition, it is common knowledge that he is a recreational marijuana user. (I have no firsthand proof of this)

When you juxtapose his playboy lifestyle with his claims of being a conservative, the whole thing rings false.

Finally – there is this: Del Becarro announced the endorsement of Economist Larry Kudlow. Mr. Kudlow is a recovering cocaine addict/alcoholic with 3 divorces. There is some sort of sick irony in that endorsement. God Bless Kudlow for kicking the nasal dust, as I sit here writing this post closing in on 13 years off of booze.

Were Del Becarro to be the GOP nominee and were he to suddenly learn how to raise money and actually campaign (other than speaking to fawning groups of would-be book purchasers) the Media would eviscerate him. All this and I have not even talked about his DUI and the cadre of women that used to work for him that would be all to willing to sit down and do tell-alls to a willing media.

Do not vote for Tom Del Becarro. Buy his books if you want for the entertainment but Leave the US Senate race to the adults.

DC Sources: Kevin McCarthy to Resign / Retire From Congress?

 Kevin McCarthy  Comments Off on DC Sources: Kevin McCarthy to Resign / Retire From Congress?

UPDATE2: Now the calls from DC are saying that NOTHING is going to happen, when followed up regarding the subject matter, the sources are back-peddaling. Was McCarthy the victim of a smear drill? (Updated 10/13)

UPDATE1: Late Friday: The story has changed to McCarthy retiring.  Early Monday 10/12 Erick Erickson reported that McCarthy told colleagues he is not resigning. Still no answer as to the reason or whether he is retiring. Rumors and calls are persisting.

Reason: Multiple affairs. No one confirmed whether or not the allegation involving Congresswoman Renee Elmers was true.

The building is abuzz and insiders are calling people in an attempt to warn them that McCarthy will be leaving Congress (either immediately or simply not running for re-election) as the sex scandal is about to break.

If this is true – then we now have context for his abrupt exit from the speaker’s race.

I am writing about this because the sources are impeccable and have been for years.

SB277 Update – the Sad, Shrinking World of Lauren Stephens

 SB277 Referendum  Comments Off on SB277 Update – the Sad, Shrinking World of Lauren Stephens
Oct 032015
 
12083811_10206553532829152_1740054406_nLauren Stephens started the SB277 Referendum failure borne out of a paranoid fantasy.
It appears that Tim Donnelly agreed to get involved as he saw opportunities for promotion of his failing radio show and a chance to make a few bucks.
Then along came a bunch of Moms who were both worried and angry that their rights got trampled again by the socialist empire in Sacramento.
Now that Lauren Stephens is being caught in her own lies – she is attempting to create a paper trail after the fact in an attempt to leave Tim Donnelly holding the bag.
The embedded screenshot of Lauren Stephens facebook page from this morning shows a complete lack of remorse. She has told multiple people multiple stories – lending credence to people’s opinion that she is a sociopath.
Donnelly, for his part is remiss to admit fault or apologize, rather is sending out a string of emails and posts whining for sympathy. Tim Donnelly will allow Lauren Stephens to take him down with her.
In addition – Lauren Stephens is the treasurer for the SB277 campaign, so her below rant implicates herself when she thinks somehow that she will be able to pin the FPPC fines on Donnelly. Lauren is personally liable for the lie about the $150k check and the multiple anonymous $5k donations in to the gofundme account. She has basically handed the FPPC the evidence they need to fine her in this email. This is what happens when you are a sociopath, you feel no empathy or remorse at all.
In addition, Lauren also attempts to re-lie about the FedEx boxes. She told multiple people she had the airbills, yet below attempts to change the narrative by throwing yet another well-meaning volunteer under the bus.
On one hand I feel sorry for Tim Donnelly, but then I see his utter and complete lack of ability to apologize and come clean. This will destroy Tim Donnelly, because he finally met his match in Lauren Stephens.
Meantime, will the mothers of California be able to seek redress?
Tim,

I am writing to inform you that I am in possession of screenshots and emails of Noelle Foster and others instructing each other to file legal complaints about me and to lie and say that they gave boxes of petitions to me and to leave others that were in the chain, out of the chain.

In one of those messages, it said to (fraudulently) claim that boxes of petitions went from Janine Kloss to me. I have never met Janine Kloss in my life and I never transported anything on her behalf. If Janine is in on this criminal behavior, then she should expect to be held accountable for this along with the others. If Janine is not involved in this, she should at least be alerted to it. I believe she was one of the recipients of these messages, yet here we are days later – and as far as I know, she has said nothing about this.

Isn’t she planning on running for office?

As you are aware, my involvement in the transport of petitions was minimal, however, you have consistently failed to communicate that to others.

Very shameful.

Additionally, in the messages, it stated that one of the Sacramento coordinators was told by the Sac elections clerk that someone had ALREADY TURNED IN two boxes of petitions, which as a result, would be disqualified. There are the alleged missing petitions right there.

And, if things couldn’t get any worse…

I have evidence that Jen Colleen was, in fact, well aware that when she shipped the fedex boxes late Sunday, they would not arrive any earlier than Tuesday. I have repeatedly requested the fedex receipts and airbills from her to prove otherwise. She refuses to do so. Her claims that *some arrived and some didn’t* is, obviously, a lie since it was not at all possible that ANY of them arrived on Monday. I asked her to provide me with the county name(s) and tracking number(s) of the counties that were shipped on Sunday, that arrived Monday. I am still waiting.

I am going to give YOU the opportunity to communicate these facts to the public and the media in a timely manner. In absence of that, I will handle it myself. I hope I don’t have to be the one to do it, but if I must bring facts, along with the appropriate evidence, to light in order to clear my name, make no mistake about it – I absolutely will. Without hesitation.

I understand that you and your harem are extremely upset that I quickly moved on to another initiative (as if it is any of your business in the first place), but here we are once again and all of you are on the wrong side of things. A great number of people are mindful of what is going on here, and they don’t like it. I have many more supporters of significance than you realize. They will stand up against this if needed. Must it really come to that?

One last thing, as you know, I am painfully aware that your committee has failed to file the required campaign finance reports with the state in regards to the $5,000.00+ donations, as well as the $150,000 donation. I sent you an email regarding this on September 24th, which went unanswered. Consider this to be the last reminder I will send.

I would kindly suggest that you immediately end this public pissing match, man up and get your people under control. It is painfully obvious they are not well equipped enough to take me on.

Lauren Stephens

If the mothers of California want to see SB277 overturned, they need to make sure that Lauren Stephens fries and that Tim Donnelly is separated from any future efforts – from anything.
