Your intrepid blogger has been on the case of (Now former) Assemblyman Bill Brough since June 2019 when Lisa Bartlett stood up and finally told her story of the 2011 incident. At that time, Fred Whitaker, the Chairman of the OCGOP attempted to hide the allegations and “keep it in the family”. The next morning your intrepid blogger was contacted by someone in the meeting and it touched off a series of events that would end the political career of William “Bill” Brough.

It also exposed OC GOP Chairman Fred Whitaker as a feckless relic of the 1980’s that refuses to defend women. His initial instinct to try and cover up the Lisa Bartlett allegations, followed by dishonest comments in the media set his pattern up to and through today.

It is time for Fred Whitaker to resign as chairman of the OCGOP

Your intrepid blogger has been told by several political insiders that Tim Clark, the then boss of the rape victim (Who worked for John Moorlach) has repeatedly attacked her credibility and Fred Whitaker has done the same. They did so in order to pave the way for the OCGOP to endorse former State Senator John Moorlach for Orange County Supervisor.

Today, the Orange County Register blew the rape allegations against Bill Brough wide open. We learn that there is significant evidence, including pictures of her injuries and doctor records as well as people that were told of the attack right after it happened.

Now they both have a major problem. The victim is real, credible and on the record. These two men should be ashamed of themselves for what they have done. Tim Clark Lied. Fred Whitaker joined in. Tim Clark is the campaign consultant for John Moorlach and this scandal is going to have far-reaching effects.

This is the victim whose story I first wrote about on June 2020. I have known Trish for several years as she has been friends with my wife since before Bill Brough raped her in July of 2015. She did not make the connection that I was Aaron from Right on Daily and the husband of her friend Jodie (my wife) until the last year. She came forward to me first before finally having the courage to go to the media. This has added a personal level to the emotions and my anger towards both Fred Whitaker and Tim Clark. I have spent today in a very emotional state.

I fear that the GOP will get completely wiped off of the map because of failures like Fred Whitaker and corrupt dishonest political operatives like Tim Clark. These two men have led the OCGOP, the New Majority, the Lincoln Club and other groups off a cliff.

18 Months later, I have not been paid a dime by anyone to take down Bill Brough. Let that sink in. Re-read this sentence as many times as needed. In my opinion, he is a predator that needs to spend the rest of his life behind bars. In my opinion, everyone that has attempted to cover for him need to pay with their titles, positions, careers and the like. I helped get Brough elected in 2014, and this became a personal mission to atone for one of the biggest mistakes I have ever made in my political career. It got even deeper and more emotional when I started talking to women – whose stories were real and verifiable – while political leaders in the GOP Female and Male alike were shunning them. Contrast this with the behavior of Tim Clark who has lied habitually and Fred Whitaker who makes ego-based status-conscious political decisions.

Quoting the OC Register: (Trish Todd is the victim)

Todd said she went to work the rest of that week, even as bruises developed on her arms, legs, left hip and right hand. She said a friend, who is an attorney, encouraged her to take photos of the injuries. She shared those photos with the Register.

That friend also urged Todd to go to a doctor, since she was still dealing with bleeding and bruising. Todd followed that advice and tested negative for any sexually transmitted disease. She has told investigators about those dated medical records.

Todd said she later told her direct supervisor at the time, Moorlach’s chief of staff Tim Clark, about the alleged assault. She says Clark urged her not to report it to anyone.

I knew about the photos. She told me she had them and I knew about them when I first reported about the Rape on 6-1-2020. I only learned that she had a medical examination shortly after the attack within the last few days. WARINING – the Post tells graphic details about the rape that are not in the OC Register Story. Photos, a Medical exam, telling friends immediately, things CREDIBLE victims do when sexually assaulted.

Tim Clark claims to be a Christian. He openly plays the Jesus card to anyone who will listen. If Mr. Clark actually lived his faith, he would not lie to people. If he lived his faith, he’d have driven Trish to the doctor, stood with her at the Sheriff’s Office to file a criminal complaint, would have backed her up to file a complaint with rules. Instead, Clark was worried about bad news affecting his boss who was new in office at the time and throttled the victim who has held this horrific attack in her mind and heart for over 5 years.

I will expand on Tim Clark later and in graphic detail at a time of my choosing. But let the reality of what he did to this rape victim in 2015 and then again in 2020 to support his personal paycheck sink in. Any candidate that hires Tim Clark is a fool and does so at their own risk. The man should be shunned permanently from the political gene pool.

Fred Whitaker? Weak. Ego-Driven. Poor Political Instincts. He needs to resign from anything resembling responsibility as TWICE on his watch Women with real claims of abuse have come forward only to be met with scorn and disdain by Mr. Whitaker in the name of political expedience. Mr. Whitaker has no moral standing whatsoever. If Whitaker won’t resign, someone needs to take him out as Chair of the OCGOP.

To be continued.

P.S. The Sacramento Bee has picked up the story. This will get legs.
