At the Tea Party Meeting in Roseville – it was reported to this blogger that Karen England ranted about Abel Maldonado, but she forgot the part about not picking up the Prop 8 case… I thought the Tea Party was about fiscal issues, not social issues?
In that same speech she said Abel Maldonado was going to lose anyway so she was ok running as she was not helping Newsome win!
If the race was going to be close, Karen would not run?
We think Karen England needs to admit that this gag is a fundraiser for the financially failing CRI (as reported to us by political insiders). There is no way this “campaign” is legitimate.
It is obvious that her game of political twister is getting out of hand and trying to keep track of the BS is getting overwhelming… in fact, we have a handy primer for you of just a handful of the lies of Karen England. (Not including her “evolving” reasons for running for Lt. Gov.)
Lie #1: She told the media she’d be resigning all her Republican Party positions out of disgust over the nominee. (it’s really because her “campaign” violates the by-laws of those organizations regarding post-primary activity.)
Lie #1A: The State CRA was forced to vacate her seat involuntarily on the State CRA Board of directors as she refused to step down. State Senate candidate Earl DeVries – also lost his seat on the State CRA Board of directors – but he resigned voluntarily.
Lie #2: Accusing the State CRA of rigging an endorsement of Ted Gaines –
Lie #2A – she told someone that she was attempting to help Barbara Alby, not Roger Niello by telling Lie #2 noted above. (everyone knows Karen England hates Barbara Alby) But basically admitted Lie #2 in the same conversation.
Lie #??? – in March she refused to sign a Placer GOP Member’s nomination papers as she claimed she did not live in his district. They both live in District 4 – she knew that. In the grand scheme of things – this is a “small” lie and was several months ago… but if Karen England lies about the small things…
What we believe to be her Grand Lie: she’s a volunteer… look at all the posts about the timely donations to the CRI, which coincide with her support of candidates. ($6K then shows up for McClintock, $5K and supports Runner over two other conservatives, $27,500 to start world war III on behalf of Doug LaMalfa)
Karen is the Executive Director of CRI – taking money from electeds is the same as if I sold some of them Insurance Policies. It is a conflict of interest she refuses to voluntarily disclose – making it an ethical issue.
The carefully crafted Image is falling apart.
Consider – Those of us working campaigns in Placer County are living with the slander Karen has spread to groups of local volunteers in an effort to hinder our ability to help candidates we endorsed win.
Karen even told the local paper she was part of some sort of reform slate that was going to take over the Central Committee…
Consider – She endorsed Moderates for local Central Committee in June and is supporting Roger Niello for State Senate over two more conservative candidates – Ted Gaines and Barbara Alby.
The Ultimate Lie – in our opinion is that her whole reason for running against Abel Maldonado is a complete sham… to be continued.
