Having Tim Clark handle crisis communication is like asking Michael Jackson to Chaperone your kids’ slumber party. Look at this Gem from John Moorlach:

It is time for Tim Clark to be prosecuted for Covering up a rape and for John Moorlach to get out of Orange County Politics.

John Moolach Lied. He knew about the rape of Trish Todd. I knew about the Rape at least 6 months ago when she told me. Even before she came out in detail, she had alleuded to it in previous conversations before telling me in graphic detail on May 28, 2020. Trish Todd has been a friend of my wife’s since 1-2014 and maybe before that. I encourage my wife to have lots of friends and I don’t keep tabs on them. Trish came to me in 2019 to talk about her former life in the Capitol when friends of hers started sending her my bombs against Bill Brough. Trish had forgotten that I was Aaron from Right On Daily after leaving the Capitol in 2016.

John Moorlach’s above comment which is consistent with the corrupt, dishonest crisis communication I have seen from Tim Clark over the years and is an outright lie. Tim Clark lied to the Orange County Republican Party – alternating between calling Trish a liar and telling others that she was not credible. Other communication I have received indicated that my 11-21-2020 blog detailing the rape with more specific information than the 6-1-2020 post was a “Smear” and a “Political Attack”. Anyone that said this is going to get their ass kicked by the Right On Daily Blog, resign now or it is coming. Trish got raped. Heather Baez was sexually Battered, Lisa Bartlett has nightmares, Jennifer Alizeri was harassed, an unnamed Dem Staffer was cornered, a realtor from South OC was propositioned and touched – AND MANY OCGOP LEADERS IGNORED THE WHOLE THING! How many more women did Bill Brough abuse because these people did nothing?

WHO THE HELL DEFENDS WOMEN when our leaders won’t? Worse our leaders appear to be the worst predators we have in society.

We know John Moolrach Lied because the Orange County Register – who I have talked to multiple times about Bill Brough – NAILED Moorlach to the wall. How did the OC Register know to contact Dick Ackerman? I TOLD THEM TO via Michael Schroeder the victim’s attorney. Ackerman had reached out to me via a third party after my 6-1-2020 post. It was put to me that Ackerman and others in the Sacraemento scene knew of the attack years ago when it happened and my post triggered memories of it.

GOD BLESS YOU DICK ACKERMAN – I’ve only met you once, but you are a stand up guy for stepping up and going on the record. Ackerman did so even as all the cocktail party mavens in Orange County were having a group kool-aid drink on the Moorlach train. I wonder how the New Majority, the Lincoln Club and the OCGOP feel right now? This is what happens when you Trust Tim Clark, you GET SCREWED.

Ackerman said he’d read about Todd’s accusations in RightOnDaily.com, a blog by Aaron Park that tracks GOP interests in Sacramento. That blog item did not use Todd’s name, at her request, and it was posted months before she filed a criminal complaint.

Ackerman said Moorlach didn’t clearly address the allegation during their conversation, focusing instead on criticism of Park.

GOOD LORD MOORLACH – ONE OF YOUR EMPLOYEES GOT RAPED AND ALL YOU CARED ABOUT WAS ME!?

Heck, Moorlach and Clark couldn’t even tell the truth in their own campaign announcement about their vote totals!!! 

I should not be surprised as John Moorlach on two occasions that I am aware of threatened to withold his endorsement of a candidate I was working for because I was working for the candidate. Not bad, as I have never met John Moolach in person but I live rent-free in his head.

Did Tim Clark ever ask the Rape Victim how she was doing? Did Moorlach? Nope. Moorlach’s above post rings completely hollow and is nothing more than damage control.

Tim Clark said in his statements to ABC7 who ran a story and to the Orange County Register that he did not report the issue himself becuase “It happened outside of work hours”. So now we know that Tim Clark is a filthy liar. (I’ve known this about Clark for about a decade, just this incidence is so obvious that even Fred Whitaker could understand it) Clark now admits the attack happened after smearing the Rape victim in phone calls to OCGOP members calling the rape allegation a smear and a lie. When confronted with Media questions, he changed his story.

What the hell kind of boss refuses to help a subordinate raped by another employer in the same building because the rape happened after hours? Someone who is either a heartless fool or someone who is making up another lie to try and cover up the original cover up of a felony. Clark is both. BTW – several worker’s comp court cases have indicated there are no office hours for public figures because of the nature of their job. This means Trish could have actually filed a worker’s comp claim for her injuries – adding another claim for a potential lawsuit against Clark and Moorlach. (I do Insurance for a Day Job)

For reasons I don’t understand, John Moorlach has allowed Tim Clark to have a psychotic grasp on him for years. I had a front row seat to watching Tim Clark manipulate Moorlach in to separating himself from friends of 20-30 years so Clark could have the whole Senate Special election in 2014-2015 to himself. I’ve been told by at least a dozen people in politics that Tim Clark owes them money (some even characterize it as stealing from them). John Moorlach has been Tim Clark’s meal ticket for years as Moorlach is the only candidate Clark has not been able to wreck at the ballot box despite his stupidity.

When I did some work for Tim Clark it was always last minute with little or no notice. Given that fact that Clark gouged his clients for $5k-$10k a month retainers plus gigantic commissions of 15-20%, why the hell weren’t his requests better thought out? I saw his mail and campaign communication in the Jack Sieglock for Assembly and the Phil Libertore for Congress Campaigns for example – both were top flite candidates that could have won easily – and it was terrible, unimaginitive and looked amateur. I’ve seen Clark manage at least a dozen losses that I can recall, for example Robert Rao for Assembly, Andy Vidak for Congress, and I’ve seen scores of others that fired him mid-campaign because he was a blithering idiot, dishonest or both.

If you think that Clark’s cover up of the rape of Trish Todd was about anything other than trying to stop bad news for his boss who was brand new in the senate at the time, you do not understand the moral and emotional corruption of that man. Healthy people would have dealt with the issue head on, and helped the victim. Not Clark. He threw her under the bus. So did John Moorlach. They should both be removed far, far away from anything resembling political authority.

TRISH TODD GOT RAPED. They didn’t give a shit.

Tim Clark lied at least three times in the Orange County Register Article. It was like re-injuring the rape victim all over again, but the media outlets let the corrupt Clark hoist himself on his own petard.

If you think I am being hard on Tim Clark, he is also a coward. Because he could never get to me directly, he retaliated against my Brother in 2016 to get even with me over the Moorlach Senate Specal election. Both George and I worked for Ben Carson in 2015-2016 in Northern Nevada (where we both now live). We were both supposed to be brought over to the Trump campaign when Carson endorsed Trump.

I did not ask, because I knew what a petty vindictive loser Clark is and that he holds grudges. (I have worked with dozens of consultants over the years who I have shredded in prior campaigns because that is how it is supposed to work – witness my work with Travis Allen in 2019 CAGOP Chair election after trashing his Governor Campaign in 2018, witness that I have helped Dave Gilliard’s interests from time to time for example)

However Tim Clark saw to it that my brother was not hired. He was too much of a coward to tell him, he made one of the other people brought over from the Carson Campaign do it. Within 2 months, everyone brought over from the Carson campaign was fired. This is how Tim Clark rolls. While busy screwing over all the Ben Carson people in his region, he was ignoring volunteers (several of whom told me in spades what Clark did not do), and running the California delegation drill in to the ground. A literal Nazi named William Johnson ended up as a Trump delegate to the RNC. That made headlines.

So Am I surprised that Moorlach and Tim Clark covered up a rape? Nope. Am I surprised that Tim Clark Lied and smeared the Rape Victim? Nope. Am I surprised that Moorlach ignored the Rape Victim when Dick Ackerman called him instead choosing to focus on me? Nope.

The part that makes me the angriest is that Tim Clark plays the Jesus card everywhere while living his life at the lowest common denominator. He was so toxic that he got fired less than a year in to his cush Washington DC Job in the Trump admin because of stuff on his twitter account. This suggests that his colleagues could not stand him in DC (just like most could not in Sacramento) and went to politico to get him lynched. The politico story is still there and I also wrote about it.

Tim Clark is a disaster. He is succeeding in finally destroying John Moolach (with Moorlach’s participation and consent) like he has pretty much everything else he has touched in politics.

TRISH TODD GOT RAPED. They didn’t give a shit.

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.

Michael Todd, begs reporters to hold Orange County Assemblyman Bill Brough accountable for allegedly raping his wife, Patricia Lenkiewicz Todd, right, in 2015. They were in her lawyer Michael Schroeder’s office in Orange on Wednesday, December 2, 2020. (Photo by Mindy Schauer, Orange County Register/SCNG)

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.

They lied again. Did you know that John Moorlach got 57% of the vote in Sup D2 while losing his race for State Senate? At least this is a key claim he is making as he attempts to jam down endorsements despite the exploding scandal in his political operation relating to the cover up of the rape of one of his former Senate Staff.

Dear OC Lincoln Club and New Majority – this endorsement is not going to end well. Haste makes waste.

So, let’s take a look at the statement of the vote in Orange County. It is linked here, but the focus is on page 236.

You will note that John Moorlach took 93,519 votes in OC Sup D2. There were 175,211 votes cast. This is 53.37%. This is not 57%. Whoops.

Secondly, the release fails to mention that about large portion (it looks like half at least) of OC Sup D2 is OUTSIDE SD37 that Moorlach lost. This makes this assertion deceptive and an outright lie on two levels. The truth is he had a slim win in about half the district he is running for. This is far from the hyperbolic lie that is presented in the release.

Sadly, this is the Tim Clark I know. (Tim Clark was John Moorlach’s Chief of Staff when the victim was raped in 2015, who is alleged to have covered up the rape and Clark has been Moorlach’s campaign manager for many years and many campaigns) Fast and loose with the truth, sloppy and when challenged blames other people. Soon Clark will be answering for what he has done to the rape victim he is smearing (whose rape he attempted to cover up).

Now back to today’s unethical behavior episode. There are several possibilities to explain this deceptive lie:

  1. Tim Clark was distracted by his non-stop smearing of the rape victim and did not do his homework.
  2. Tim Clark can’t do Algebra.
  3. Tim Clark lied once or twice in the release.
  4. All of the above
    Extra Credit: John Moorlach was asleep at the switch once again and has provided no oversight of his staff (as demonstrated by the cover up of the alleged rape in 2015 as well).

I see that the OC Supervisor Special Election is already off to a felonious start. Lovely. I see that Moorlach is asleep at the switch, yet his crew in the OC political establishment are covering for him. OC Voters deserve better than this sort of unchecked behavior from Moorlach and his staff (as well as the enabling from others).

P.S. for reference I took a screenshot of Page 236 of the OC Statement of the Vote to save those of you on slow computers or cell phones the trouble of looking for the money page:

Blogger’s Note: I received an email forward. It is an email from Fred Whitaker, the Chairman of the OCGOP. He is doubling down on supporting John Moorlach, despite credible allegations that a member of his staff was raped in 2015 and said rape was covered up by John Moorlach’s Chief of Staff Tim Clark (who is still Moorlach’s campaign manager). If it was not clear before – it is 100% clear that Whitaker’s ego is involved and he’d rather die than let Right On Daily claim another scalp in Orange County. Please also note that the source could not forward the email to either my insurance office or my yahoo account until Fred’s email address was removed from the text – suggesting that Fred Whitaker has blocked both of my email addresses. This is cowardice.

Allow your intrepid blogger to point out the obvious. Had Bill Brough not been a pig, a drunk, a rapist, a slimebag and embezzled his own campaign money – I’d probably be writing about other things. Had Fred Whitaker and others not bungled the response so badly, I’d be writing about something else. Yet, here we are.

I will guarantee the OCGOP something. You all saw me take Bill Brough from a shoo-in for re-election to a political has been. His legacy of destruction is not done. My guess is Brough has dozens of victims, and we may never know the extent of his lifetime of destruction. 

In response to credible allegations that a staffer of John Moorlach’s was raped, and said rape was covered up, Tim Clark, John Moorlach’ then Chief of Staff (and current campaign consultant) and others are attacking the veracity of the rape victim. Fred Whitaker is calling the allegations libel. Everyone that buys in to Fred Whitaker and Tim Clark’s line of logic will end up as humiliated as they will be when this is all said and done. This is a warning and not a threat or hyperbole.

For the rest of you reading that are in other counties – take a look at Fred Whitaker’s email and juxtapose that with the fact that a Staffer of John Moolach’s got raped by Bill Brough (I believe her and I know there is proof as I have written before). The OCGOP is being pushed by Fred Whitaker, in what I believe is an ego-feuled rampage to endorse John Moorlach for Orange County Supervisor despite this issue. The email Fred Whitaker Sent follows (I have emboldened the key parts):

(INSERT NAME HERE):

I’m reaching out to you to ask a personal favor, because we are at a critical point.  The absolutely false accusation against Sen. Moorlach is threatening the ability of the party to unite behind one candidate for this special election, where only one more vote wins. The Democrats have only one candidate – Katrina Foley.   We have 4 candidates, and now even Diane Dixon says she wants to run because of the allegations against Moorlach.  That would be 5 Republicans (three City Council members from Newport and one from Huntington Beach and Sen. Moorlach).   I have commitments from two of our candidates they will withdraw for Moorlach, but not the others.   Once we show courage, others will follow.

I believe that if we consolidate behind Sen. Moorlach, we will have the most well-known candidate as the only candidate. We cannot say that with the others in the race – the city council members will not get out for each other and they are not known past their cities.    John Moorlach as always fought the principled fight. We need to fight for him.

I personally, think the blog was sent out just to sow disarray in the party by those that want to see us divided, since they know we can’t unite behind one of the others.  I know you know how it feels to be wrongly accused and have libel sent out against you.   Please help John fight this. Would you please “reply” that we can count your email as support for Sen Moorlach’s endorsement?   I appreciate the consideration.

Sincerely,

Fred

Let the words above sink in. Everything I have written about William “Bill” Brough has proven to be true. So will this. Fred Whitaker, Tim Clark and John Moorlach will hear from me quite a bit for the next few months and even more so once the victim who is being smeared by these three men has had her case made and evidence known.

The victim was raped. Tim Clark Covered it up. John Moorlach did indeed know about it. The rape is real and verifiable. The truth is on the way, and when it comes out make sure Fred Whitaker, Tim Clark and John Moorlach are held accountable for what they did years ago when the rape happened and what they are doing now.

P.S. Wait until the democrats get ahold of the evidence that is coming out. The OCGOP will pay dearly as will our candidates. Think it through. The optics are horrible.

Get a good look. This is the man pushing the OCGOP, Lincoln Club and others (along with Jon F.) to go off the cliff for John Moorlach

We’ve written about former State Senator John Moorlach’s Consultant / Former Chief of Staff Tim Clark for years on the Right On Daily Blog. Expect to see some refreshers so you can re-acquaint yourself with the lack of integrity, demonstrated dishonesty and overall lack of ethics that define Tim Clark. (and we have evidence too) I’ve known Tim Clark as a consultant and have seen his poor political advice, bland messaging, procrastination (everything is last minute with him), what I believe is overbilling, and tactically poor decisions made to maximize his own profit while he shoves everyone else out of the campaign. I’ve seen Clark wreck years-long relationships between candidates and others in order to gain complete control of candidates.

Right now, Tim Clark is working overtime behind the scenes with people on the OCGOP to smear the good name of a rape victim who told him her story. Tim Clark covered up the attack and ample people over the years knew about it. (More coming soon as the bear trap tightens around Clark/Moorlach and crew)

I had warned the former Moorlach Staffer who I believe was raped by Bill Brough that Tim Clark would lie about the events and attempt to smear her. It is happening almost like clockwork. With people like Fred Whitaker whose ego is wrapped up in everything OC (aka he cares more about how the scandals reflect on him than on the party itself), Clark who I know to be a master manipulator has an easy mark and accomplice to further his latest paycheck.

Please note that Tim Clark is on the Right on Daily all time top ten list of political losers (Note: Brough supplanted the corrupt former Sheriff of Riverside County Stan Sniff for number 1)

Allow your intrepid blogger to remind you of how Fred Whitaker responded to the Bill Brough scandal June 24th 2019:

The Bee continued with a fairly detailed story ending with these comments from the feckless void known as Fred Whitaker:

Fred Whitaker, chairman of the Orange County GOP, said the county party will not tolerate harassment but is unaware of any ongoing investigations into Brough’s behavior.

“The Republican Party of Orange County has no tolerance for sexual misconduct,” Whitaker said in a statement. “We are not aware of any pending investigations. All claims of sexual misconduct should be reported to and investigated by law enforcement or state legislative ethics committees to allow for a fair and thorough investigation, so that victims can be heard and an accused can present a defense. If an investigation is initiated, any request for endorsement would be dependent on the results of the investigation. There is no request for endorsement pending at this time.”

Fred Whitaker lied to the Sacramento Bee by omission. He saddled up on a technicality to dodge the question. If he does not Resign in disgrace, the OCGOP should vacate the chair at the next meeting. Whitaker knows full well there is a problem and the committee voted to refer the matter back to the endorsement committee for an investigation – prompting Brough to withdraw his request. The honest answer would have been, “The OCGOP referred the endorsement matter back to the endorsement committee for a review of issues after Mrs. Bartlett’s remarks at the Monday Evening meeting and Mr. Brough withdrew his request for endorsement two days later. As such, there is no current investigation or request for an endorsement”.

Whitaker’s legally-parsed response is yet another example of the moral bankruptcy that is rampant within the ranks of political leaders at all levels. At least we now know where Fred Whitaker stands, avoid the issue at all costs and defend the incumbent.

It took mere weeks for Whitaker to eat major crow as victims and corroboration poured out against Bill Brough. Mark this blogger’s words – climbing in bed with Tim Clark is a career-ending move. If Clark calls someone a liar or attacks their credibility – which Moorlach’s staff also appear to be doing – you can make bank that person is worth listening to.

Then, take a step back and think through how victim shaming is going to look in the community at large. There were a variety of ways for Moorlach to respond, having Tim Clark handle crisis communication is like inviting tobacco companies to research lung cancer.

Meantime – Fred Whitaker is on his way to screwing up colossally for a second time in his tenure as OCGOP Chairman. He has now established a pattern of callous disregard for female victims of misconduct by legislators. This is going to be ammo for the OC Dems and the union Independent Expenditure Committees to use.
