I have gotten quite an education on Jessica Patterson since her rigged election to CAGOP Chair. (remember 44% of her support was via proxy) She is obsessed with identity politics, she is ruthless and vindictive. When I did opposition research on Patterson I heard tons of stories about her conduct in campaign offices and her reputation as the “Little General”. Recently, #CA10 GOP Nominee Ted Howze came under fire from Politico by virtue of opposition research sent to them by a Tom Steyer staffer from San Francisco. Jessica Patterson responded the way all squishes respond at the first sign of trouble – surrender and collaborate with the liberal media in hopes they won’t hurt you.
We are constantly reminded that Jessica Patterson is the first female chair of the CAGOP and that she is a latina. Anyone that has to run with labels and advertise them is over-compensating for something. Secondly, Patterson has made it clear most White Males are not welcome in her world. (Just Ask Lloyd White who was on the receiving end of $1Million of the scant resources the CAGOP could bring to bear in SD23)
About A week before Jessica Patterson engineered a withdrawal of the CAGOP endorsement of Ted Howze, an email went out on the CAGOP email system. (Note: I have been scrubbed from the list and do not receive any of them. Please forward any you get to [email protected] and you can remain anonymous) Stephen Frank wrote about the email on 5-20-2020 on his blog:
The Big Story
This came in the email from the California Republican Party: “We have some great candidates on the General Election ballot that reflect the strength and diversity of our state. These candidates include Michelle Park Steel (CA 48), Young Kim (CA 39), Suzette Valladares (AD 38) and Rosilicie Ochoa Bogh (SD 23), among others. And of course, we need to get Congressman Mike Garcia re-elected to the 25th District.“
What about Greg Raths where the GOP got 49% of the primary vote against radical AOC type Regressive Katie Porter? Or David Valadao, who is LEADING in the polls against the openly corrupt and investigated T.J. Cox? Or Ted Howze in the 10th CD, the old Jeff Denham seat, who raised more than one million dollars and is running an aggressive campaign???
Why are Raths, Valadao and Howze ignored? Plus in the 38th Assembly District there are TWO GOP-ER’S in the race! One is a Hispanic and the other is a LEGAL immigrant—why isn’t she mentioned as well? What is the commonality that causes the California Republican Party to promote one set of candidates that can win over another set of candidates that can win?
You will note the sexism in her choice of candidates to highlight. Not even David Valadao, a former Congressman made the cut for being highlighted. Mike Garcia got an afterthought mention. Greg Raths (CA45) and Ted Howze (CA10) were both shunned. Now we know why Howze was shunned, and I’d imagine that Jessica Patterson and her friends are lining up Greg Raths for a similar fate. Valadao is Portuguese so he does not check a box either and failed the vetting for Jessica Patterson’s racial pandering.
Note the labels, labels, labels.
Why was Jessica Patterson so quick to slit Ted Howze throat? Also note that Ted Howze was not given a chance to defend himself to the CAGOP board. While I have no evidence to prove this, I believe that the NRCC did not give Howze a chance either before they turned their back on him. With Republicans like these who needs the Mueller investigation?
- Ted Howze voted for Travis Allen for CAGOP Chairman.
- Scott Winn and Jeff Acquitaspace ran the campaign of Marla Livengood who was humiliated in the CA10 primary. They are close to Patterson and crew having done paid work for the CAGOP establishment for years.
Winn could get vindication with a take-down of Howze and Jessica Patterson could seek revenge on another Travis Allen suppoter – similar to the Trump delegation being thin on Travis/Steve Frank People and next to none of them being on anything CAGOP.
Patterson’s crew have threatened people for talking to your intrepid blogger. This is why you can email me at [email protected] and remain anonymous if you have information you think needs to be brought in to the light.
The offending social media posts? Criticizing Islam for violence and pedophilia. Talking about black fatherlessness and crime. Apparently Patterson is cool with Marie Waldron talking about letting felons out of jail but Howze’ social media accounts discussing the CAUSE of said crime is bad. Nothing Howze is alleged to have posted is any different than President Trump’s words.
But then, Jessica Patterson, Scott Winn and most others in the sphere of CAGOP leadership are never-trumpers.
Patterson did not stop at just ramrodding a withdrawal of the CAGOP endorsement for Ted Howze. Your intrepid blogger received a scarlet letter twice. This is a letter that is reputed to have been written by Jessica Patterson (see below) and sent to the County Chairman of Stanislaus and San Joaquin County for them to sign and return AFTER the CAGOP yanked their endorsement. Jessica Patterson was trying to enlist the local GOP Chairs in giving her vendetta political cover.
The letter was emailed to the county chairs by Jessica Patterson, However, If you pull the metadata off of the letter, none other than Scott Winn created it. Checkmate – this is the CAGOP of 2020. There is your connection, a jilted consultant who was humiliated in the primary working with the CAGOP Chairman to get revenge on a candidate they both have reasons to hate.
When these people preach unity in public, you know they are lying through their teeth. They don’t want unity, they want control – including helping Josh Harder beat Ted Howze in 2020 so they can run someone like Kristen Olsen in 2022 for #CA10.
Everything Jessica Patterson and her crew are doing is to position their candidates for office in future elections. The rest of us be dammed.
