The case of William “Bill Brough” is a total disaster. His own intransigent ego is keeping him in office, the ego of State Senator Pat Bates who is fully invested in Brough and the fealty to the Status Quo by several in local politics caused many to be slow to act. Recently, there has been significant movement by several in local politics against the Scandal-Riddled Bill Brough. If you are reading this post, it means you care enough about California Politics to look.

We’ve been writing about the scandal-riddled Bill Brough for months now. This post is intended to provide a timeline of just SOME of the issues related to this man. He has no business being in office anywhere.

In 2011, Brough had a business fail – and the whole time he was on City Council appears to have never had regular employment.

In 2011, Brough is alleged to have sexually harassed/battered now Supervisor Lisa Bartlett.

In 2013, Brough went in to default on his home mortgage. (selling the residence in 2014)

In 2014, Brough is alleged to have laundered campaign money in to or out of a PAC that never existed.

In 2014, Bill Brough was his own treasurer and the financial issues are alleged to have started then. These include paying his entire family cell phone bill out of his campaign.

In 2014, after selling his house to avoid the trustee sale, Brough is alleged to have begun renting an expensive Beach House in Dana Point.

In Feb 2015, Bill Brough is alleged to have sexually battered / harassed a woman who is employed as a political staffer. (I have copies of records and text messages related to this)

In March of 2015, Bill Brough is alleged to have sexually harassed / propositioned yet another political staffer. (I spoke to this victim)

Bill Brough’s 2017-2018 Campaign Finance Records are replete with personal expenses being paid out of his campaign account. A second post is linked here. These include a portable bar and a cigar humidor listed as “Office Expenses”. The embedded photo is Bill Brough on a donor-funded trip to a RedSox Game courtesy of his donors.

Bill Brough turns 50, no problem having a big fat party! – $7613 worth of donor money paid for it all!

Hopefully, Brough’s political opponents can use this list of issues to run him out of office. It appears that the Sacramento donors are not going to help an opponent (fealty to the status quo) so the Orange County donor community is going to have to carry the day despite the interference from Senator Pat Bates.

Bill Brough’s behavior is not a recent thing, nor are his maladies isolated incidents! There is a pattern going back 8 years (that we know of).

With Bill Brough you have four documented cases of misconduct with women (2 are on the record and 2 requested confidentiality). We have multiple documented cases of malfeasance with his campaign money. Then there is Personal Financial Disaster. Than add to this, Brough is alleged to have been drunk or on his way there in at least two of the cases of harassment and is alleged to be a heavy drinker with quite a reputation in Sacramento. Apparently, Brough has a similar reputation in Orange County as well.

This is certainly not the life of a Conservative nor someone anyone wants representing them in Government. Fire Bill Brough…

  1. Wow. Even by low blogger standards you have hit bottom. You cite anonymous people to accuse this guy and don’t have the integrity to even admit it is allegation and not established. The list of wrongs are mostly not wrong at all, and the few that would be aren’t supported or aren’t actionable… but you smear away. Could it be you and others you bid for have political motives to selectively and salaciously attack? If you seek corruption you’ll find better examples to tilt against in the TCA and it’s OC politician sycophants whom Brough dares to challenge. THERE is where real malpractice has been documented. You should check out journalistic standards and talk to an ethicist about what you’ve done with posts like you e made here, blogger. Weak. Destructive. Reckless.

    Blogger’s Note: Breathe, I happen to know 3 of the four women that have come forward. You are so tracked in to the toll road thing, you are blind…

  2. @Dave, how can you say Aaron cited anonymous sources when he said in his article that he personally spoke to his sources/victims. And how can you say that the wrongs of using political funds for personal expenses is not a wrong at all? It sounds like a crime to me. Aaron is exposing political corruption, just like he did in Riverside County, it’s just too bad that the D.A. did not have the intestinal fortitude to hold people accountable. At the very least, Bill Brough needs to go the way of Duncan Hunter. Keep up the good work Aaron.
