I will offer a suggestion – Bill Brough’s scandals threaten the electoral prospects of pretty much every Republican in Orange County. Thus, other than doing a few stories to keep up with developments, they are not doing the daily pounding the state media is doing to Ricardo Lara.
The leftist rag, the Sacramento Bee has dispatched one of their social justice warriors to take down Ricardo Lara. The reporter is the same woman who attacked Courage Worldwide repeatedly using disgruntled former employees in an attempt to cut off the donations and funding to this non-profit faith-based sex trafficking charity.
It is refreshing to see them focused on real corruption instead of attacking people of faith over an employment dispute.
The Bee has had 5 articles this month (one an editorial) attacking Ricardo Lara over his fundraising, and regulatory decisions. As I live and sell insurance in Northern California, I can tell you first hand that finding insurance for people is a nightmare, even in urban areas. This is because of the state throttling forest management for years, inadequate transportation (think fire trucks getting somewhere fast) and an insurance commissioner refusing to let new insurance carriers come in to the state because all he cares about are the premium rates.
Regarding Bill Brough – his maladies are on par with Ricardo Lara’s.
While Lara appears to be corrupted by donors thus leading to regulatory decisions screwing policyholders in favor of insurance carrier donors, Brough appears to have been living off of his campaign account.
The amount of news coverage between the two has been disparate. This is one of the reasons the Right on Daily Blog exists.
While Lara broke campaign promises in a major way, so did Bill Brough.
Bill Brough has 4 documented and public cases of sexual misconduct that are being investigated – while sources indicate it could be as many as 7.
Both Lara and Brough are alleged to be heavy drinkers with strings of events surrounding their alcohol abuse.
This gets me to the difference between Democrat and Republican Leadership. I can safely say that democrat leadership have told their
whores partners in the state media that they are to take out Ricardo Lara. His issues will affect Democrats all over the state. Should Lara resign, the communist governor Gavin Newsom would appoint his replacement.
There was a meeting of the California Press Club yesterday (9/11/2019) in which the feature was a debate between the socialist party chair and Jessica Patterson Madam Chairman of the CAGOP.
I have written in the past a few things. 1. That GOP “Leadership” were trying to protect Bill Brough 2. That CAGOP Leadership are less than thrilled over the Bill Brough Scandals. 3. That Madam Chairman was being kept at bay by GOP Leadership.
In the grand scheme of things, Bill Brough could care less about a CAGOP endorsement. So this statement from Jessica Patterson tells me that the “leadership” in the California Assembly GOP Caucus have not learned a thing. It could very well be that they do not want to see a member go down as it may affect their own elections. It could also be an ego play (aka, calling on Brough to resign would be humiliating).
Jessica Patterson was hailed as the first woman Chairman of the CAGOP and a Latina at that. Now, the first Woman Chairman is being throttled by a Woman Assembly Minority Leader, a Woman Senate Minority Leader and yet another Woman Senator (Pat Bates). These women could not be bothered to stand up for the women victimized by Bill Brough and the best they can do is say “We won’t endorse this guy?”.
Remember, we’ve been hammering Bill Brough with evidence for three months going in to graphic detail about his alcohol abuse, abuse of women and his financial maladies. I suppose these “leaders” need stone tablets from God before they will do the right thing.
One final note – I am hearing that the OCGOP Chairman Fred Whitaker is under some extreme pressure to try and delay (or kill) any action on the OCGOP and that pressure is being applied by Assembly permanent minority leader Marie Waldron and Senator Pat Bates. If true and I can prove it, Pat Bates will not enjoy her last 2 1/2 years in office very much. If true and I can prove it – I will advocate for a new Assembly Permanent Minority leader. (Vincent Fong? James Gallagher?)
So I ask again – who is going to stand up publicly for the victims? Will it be your intrepid blogger by himself as it appears to have been for three months?
