This is from a source inside the meeting of the CAGOP’s board of directors.

This is unheard of. The CAGOP’s board of directors has set fire to an incumbent.

For the last six months it is felt lonely at times dealing with this extremely disturbed man. Thank you (finally) CAGOP Board for joining in the effort to deal with this problem!

BROUGH SEEKS REELECTION

Bryan Anderson writes

Assemblyman Bill Brough has decided to run for reelection, despite a lack of support from his own party.

The decision from the Dana Point Republican comes as he faces a pair of investigations into alleged sexual harassment and potential campaign finance violations.

In a statement, Brough claimed “most see the complaints against me as political payback” and said he filed for re-election “after hearing from my constituency.”

In September, the Orange County GOP urged Brough to retire rather than seek another two years in office.


Allow your intrepid blogger to suggest the names of Brough’s Constituents:

Andre Popov
Viatchaslav Smirnoff
Jim Beam
Jack Daniels
Jose Cuervo

Tick tock bad billy…

Sac BS = Sacramento Bee.

Bill Brough’s world is collapsing rapidly. Similar to someone in a downward spiral due to self-destructive behavior, Brough is blaming everyone else for his maladies.

Your Intrepid Blogger obtained a copy of William “Bill” Brough’s candidate statement for his re-election attempt. It is clinical – similar to the narcissistic-rage rampage of Chad Mayes, Bill Brough’s spiral is a classic pattern of an addict. Chad Mayes will engage in a series of self-destructive acts to prove once and for all he is right and everyone else is wrong. Bill Brough so desperately wants to keep his frat party lifestyle that he is in a similar trap of calling everyone around him a liar and using a political issue as a straw-man.

All clinical diagnosis aside –  Bill Brough’s Ballot Statement is a disaster.

#1 The tone of the ballot statement is angry and defensive. It sounds like it was written in a drunken pity party while Brough was thinking about all the meanies doing mean things to him.

#2 A discerning reader would compare paragraph 2 to paragraph 5 and realize that out of the list of stuff in Paragraph 5 was not accomplished, only the two items referenced in paragraph 2. Brough just handed his opponents fodder to call him a failure. (In addition to crooked and/or a pig)

#3 There are a few grammatical errors in the statement. Definitely an #EPICFAIL for an incumbent.

#4 There are also two easy to prove outright lies in Brough’s Ballot Statement as well. I am not sure if he will be forced to correct them before publishing or not – but we will detail those lies in later posts.

#5 He focuses on an issue that appears to only matter in 1/3 of his district, and makes it the straw man for everything that has befallen him. No Professional Consultant would ever allow this in a ballot statement. However, when the bottle is your best friend, it does not lend itself to rational thought.

#6 He mentions the scandals that have befallen him. This is quite possibly the dumbest thing I have ever seen in a ballot statement. In 22 years in politics I’ve never seen this done before…

… It appears that Andrei Popov or Viatchaslav Smirnoff is William “Bill” Brough’s campaign manager.

This morning the OCGOP endorsed Laurie Davies for Assembly. The vote was 37-6. The 6 votes were refuseniks, not Bill Brough supporters. Bill Brough did not get a single vote for endorsement from the OCGOP, on the heels of getting humiliated unanimously by the OC Lincoln Club – who also endorsed Laurie Davies.

The OCGOP just abandoned an incumbent, something completely unheard of.

I can not understate what a political earthquake this is. Your intrepid blogger is 6 months in to blasting Bill Brough, and it has taken until the last month or so to see real movement from the political leaders. I can not understate how proud I am of the women who stood up to intimidation and came out publicly behind their claims. These brave women gave a human face to what the Right on Daily Blog was writing about William “Bill” Brough. 

I feel like I was doing my part to protect them when I turned in over 200 pages of evidence to back up a multi-faceted FPPC claim against Brough. I’ve written about a dozen posts about Bill Brough’s financial maladies, and a refresher course on the dirty dealings may well be on the docket shortly.

For Bill Brough, no on the Job Training IS necessary, just a political Beer Truck with his name on it is barreling down the 241 Freeway towards his rented home in Dana Point…

Bill Brough getting things done with Gavin…

Ed Sachs was counting on his endorsement to continue this campaign. Bill Brough used to be bankrolled by these people. This is significant in the face of Republican Leadership who have been refusing to lead for so long. Hat tip to the Lincoln Club for taking the lead on ridding Orange County of the scourge of Bill Brough. A second hat tip for picking a successor to the scandal-marred Bill Brough

LINCOLN CLUB OF ORANGE COUNTY

ORANGE COUNTY, CA – Yesterday, the Board of Directors of the Lincoln Club of Orange County voted to endorse Mayor Laurie Davies to replace scandal plagued Bill Brough for the 73rd Assembly District.

“Mayor Laurie Davies is the strongest candidate in the race with a long history of working to advance the conservative movement in our county,” said Lincoln Club of Orange County President John Warner. “She is a proven campaigner and fundraiser, having recently been reelected Mayor of Laguna Niguel. This is our opportunity to unite behind the candidate best positioned to defeat Bill Brough and avoid giving the Democrats an easy target in November. And when conservatives and Republicans are united, we win.”

In September the Lincoln Club unanimously rescinded its endorsement of Bill Brough for re-election in the face of numerous, serious and credible allegations of sexual harassment, and the State’s opening of an investigation into Brough’s alleged misuse of $200,000 in campaign funds for personal use.

Founded in 1962, the Lincoln Club of Orange County is the premiere political association in Orange County. Its members are businessmen and women and professionals united behind the principles of limited government, free markets, and personal responsibility. For 55 years the Lincoln Club of Orange County has worked to expand freedom, opportunity, and prosperity for all.

In commemoration of Bill Brough defiantly filing for re-election, allow your intrepid blogger to remind everyone of the Tour-De-Brough. Reading through the comprehensive list of everything Brough will give you a window into the out of control alcoholic and “pig” that currently infests AD-73.

Bill Brough Shows Everyone Who’s Boss.

Your Intrepid Blogger has been confounded by the weakness shown by Fred Whitaker and Marie Waldron (the Assembly Permanent Minority Leader) in the face of the blatant scandal. It is my belief that Bill Brough filed for re-election due in no small part to their weakness and refusal to lead.

Don’t worry dear readers – many have abandoned Bill Bough in the face of the totality of his scandals – read on.

The best the OCGOP could muster was a weak, watered down resolution calling on Bill Brough to retire. Since Brough has filed, you can tell he had the same reaction to the resolution that I did. Further, he appears to not care about the OCGOP, a group he once donated thousands to.

Your Intrepid blogger started in on Bill Brough 5 months ago. On Monday 6-17-2019, Lisa Bartlett, a Supervisor told her spellbinding story to an audience that sat in stunned silence about Bill Brough’s Harassment and unwanted advances toward her.

This story was broken on the Right on Daily Blog 40 hours later despite attempts by the OCGOP Leadership to “Keep it in the Family”. Then the cascade began.

Two More Victims Come Out Against Assemblymember Bill Brough, to your intrepid blogger within just a few days. Ultimately, Bill Brough would “out” two of the victims in what I believe to be one of his many drunken rages. I wrote about a press conference headlined by the Crime Victims of Orange County with Patricia Wenskunas blasting Bill Brough along with three of his victims on public record against him.

In May of 2018, Bill Brough lied to my face, denying the existence of an Assembly Rules Committee Complaint when I asked him about itHe also appears to have lied to several other political leaders in the area in denying the existence of an Assembly Rules Committee Complaint. We now know there are at least four with insider political leaders indicating the real number could be two to three times that.

On 6-21-2019 The Orange County Register weighed in, quoting Right on Daily as a source. They also got bill Brough to confirm the existence of at least one complaint to the Assembly Rules Committee by a female victim, this is how we confirm that  a year before he lied to staff about its’ existence. Brough knew all along.

6-24-2019: The Sacramento Bee and the Voice of OC joined the chorus.

As of the writing of this summary – the California Legislative Working Committee on Sexual Harassment has interviewed at least a dozen people I am aware of. I can confirm 4 victims, and I have been told there may be well over 10 in total. The Statewide Media has confirmed the existence of said investigations.

In addition, I pieced together a timeline based on some opposition research I did against Bill Brough:

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”.

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

Bill Brough’s Irish Caucus Slush Fund was highlighted here.

Then the OC TAX group gave him the 2019 Radish award for being a pork barrel spender.

Bill Brough even made the OC Weekly Scariest People List, checking in at #8.

The effort against Bill Brough marked a personal first. Usually, your intrepid blogger gets cited by media outlets without attribution. This time, because I took the lead on filing two massive detailed and documented campaign finance complaints, several media outlets cited www.rightondaily.com as a primary source.

The first blog about the FPPC picking up the complaint and formally notifying me of the investigation is here.

I amended the complaint to add even more to it after OC Register Coverage, and highlighted several stories quoting your intrepid blogger.

Park said he believes he helped Brough get elected to a first term in the 73rd Assembly District after he publicized information about one of Brough’s opponents. Now, as claims mount about Brough’s campaign finances and allegations that he’s made unwanted sexual advances against several women, Park said he feels a “sense of duty” to help get him out of office.

“He turned out to not be who he said he was,” Park said. “He needs to go now.”

A major Donor Group in Orange County – the Lincoln Club issued a Press Release Withdrawing their endorsement. It has been made clear that most, if not all in the OC New Majority have as well even though it is not public.

Bill Brough is in serious trouble. There is a full blown state level investigation in to his sexual misconduct. The FPPC has nearly 250 pages of documentation from your intrepid blogger that they are combing through as the web of Bill Brough’s personal life and abuse of campaign funds is becoming clear.

Bill Brough has lost the OC GOP, the OC Lincoln Club, the OC Crime Victims have called on him to resign. Dozens of local electeds have endorsed other candidates for AD-73. Diane Harkey, Mimi Walters and other female leaders have publicly opposed Bill Brough.

But true to the form that has led his life to a disheveled mess – Bill Brough is right and everyone else is wrong, just ask him. Perhaps his last remaining supporter Sex Robot Sean can help lead him back to the promised land of free booze and donor-funded junkets once more.
