AD-72: Very simple metric. Tyler Diep was set up to run for AD-72 by former Assemblyman Travis Allen. Diep promptly repaid Travis Allen by taking $3800 from California Trailblazers and endorsing the now former executive director of California Trailblazers over Travis Allen for CAGOP Chair in 2019. In addition, Tyler has as liberal of a voting record as several democrats – including voting Yes on the disaster known as AB5 which has wrecked the careers of tens of thousands. Diep has gotten his 30 pieces of silver as his campaign account is flush with Labor Union money and PAC donations.

It is the opinion of this blogger that Diep will bolt the GOP as soon as it suits him as Diep seems to have a life pattern of using and discarding relationships.

Janet Nguyen is meaner than a junkyard dog and this is precisely what the GOP needs as people like Diep, Chad Mayes and their friends in the swamp are hunting Republicans in to extinction.

Frank Ury has been seen in public several times with Ed Sachs. Has Ury been coordinating his attacks on Laurie Davies with Sachs?

One of the most consistent complaints, beyond Ed Sachs filing and diluting the Republican vote in AD-73 has been Sachs consistent focus on attacking Laurie Davies and not William “Bill” Brough.

I’ve been deliberately staying out of picking a candidate against William “Bill” Brough because my focus has been on eliminating that monster from the political gene pool. The issue is that monsters are usually enabled both willingly and actively by codependent enablers.

In the case of Frank Ury and Ed Sachs, I think there is a healthy level of “Campaign Envy” and a healthy level of them wondering how Laurie Davies got out of her kitchen to run for office. Sachs and crew derisively refer to Mr. and Mrs. Davies’ occupations – yet say nothing about William “Bill” Brough’s phantom and failed businesses.

Sachs should be talking about the female victims of Bill Brough and Brough’s fiscal malfeasance, I’ve yet to get a report back from anyone that he has.

It is because of Ed Sachs’ behavior and Frank Ury’s stunt that I have decided to plant my flag and endorse Laurie Davies for AD-73. I have lost any confidence that Ed Sachs will do the right thing as he appears to be overcome with jealousy and is literally assisting Bill Brough to the expense of us all.

I also have information that I am attempting to verify that one other prominent local elected in non partisan office may well be on a similar angry ego trip. Once I have been able to verify with evidence I will be writing about that character as well.

The GOP deserves better than ego-fueled rampages. With our numbers shrinking, we need leadership now more than ever and it seems that the exact opposite is happening.

These are Frank Ury’s known donors.

This is what I like to see. GOP Groups taking out the trash.

Let’s start with Tyler Diep – who in the opinion of this blogger will Bolt the GOP after the March Primary. Note – Prop 14 does NOT require the top two candidates to runoff with the party preference they took in the primary. The individual is the nominee, and has nothing to do with the political parties. To think, every time a resolution to oppose Prop 14 has been brought up, the party apparatus has killed it. Tyler Diep will join the Chad Mayes Party in March, perhaps he waits until November if he survives both halves of the election. (But my money is on March for him to Diep in to the ranks of NPP)

Similar to how the Orange County Realtors continue to support William “Bill” Brough in defiance of the facts – they are also pouring money in to the corrupt Tyler Diep because they believe it will buy influence with him. (That is the only conclusion I can draw for why a local group would continue investing in such people of low character)

Of note – Matt Fleming who is a paid consultant of the CAGOP wrote an op ed defending Tyler Diep a day before former OCGOP Chair Scott Baugh tore him apart.

Secondly, the CAGOP’s BY-Laws indicate that for a candidate to have a CAGOP endorsement, they must have at least 80% of the underlying counties. Tyler Diep now has 0% of the underlying counties. Will the CAGOP follow its’ own by-laws and yank the endorsement? (If Matt Fleming has anything to say, nothing will happen)

ORANGE COUNTY, CA – Hon. Fred M. Whitaker, Chairman of the Republican Party of Orange County, released the following statement regarding the endorsement of Assemblyman Tyler Diep:

Yesterday evening Republican Party of Orange County Central Committee met in Executive Session to discuss the Petition of Assemblyman Matthew Harper to rescind the endorsement of Assemblyman Tyler Diep.

The petition was based on a series of votes incongruent with the Republican platform. After a comprehensive discussion and debate, the endorsement of Assemblyman Diep was rescinded by a majority vote, as required by our bylaws.

Chairman Whitaker stated – “This is a sad day when an incumbent Republican member of the legislature loses the local party endorsement, but the party felt there had to be accountability for voting patterns. There are two Republicans running in the primary for the 72nd Assembly District, and the voters can decide which one best represents their district without a recommendation from the local party.”

Assemblyman Diep is still endorsed by the California Republican Party.

And, then there is the curious case of the raging alcoholic Bill Brough. The booze must have been talking in his last email:

Brough has built a vast organization for his March 3 re-election. The resources allow Brough to get his message out and counter the negative, dishonest attacks by his opponents. Comparing fundraising numbers, electoral and a proven conservative record, it is clear that Brough is in the best position to win in March.

Everyone whines about attacks being dishonest which is why your intrepid blogger cites sources, uses photos and provides links to articles and documents. I’d encourage Brough to put the bottle of Popov down and have a look at the dozens of media articles and thousands of pages of public records related to him. Perhaps this is the vast organization he was referring to?

Two other “Vast Organizations” lit him up good: (But in Brough’s mind intoxication it is all about his sudden opposition to the 241 Toll Road expansion…)

ORANGE COUNTY REPUBLICAN LEADERS JOIN AND CALL ON ASSEMBLYMAN BILL BROUGH TO RESIGN

Two Orange County Republican leaders today demanded the immediate resignation of Assemblyman Bill Brough from office (R – Assembly District 73).

At least four women have publicly accused Brough of unwanted sexual advances and inappropriate touching. Brough is currently under investigation by the California Assembly for some of the accusations.

“It’s time for Bill Brough to step aside, resign, and open the door for a candidate who can represent South County without degrading the name of the Republican Party,” said John Warner, President of The Lincoln Club of Orange County.

Steve Craig, Chairman of The New Majority joined in the demand. The Lincoln Club of Orange County is the oldest conservative donor group in California. The New Majority is a powerful right-leaning political action organization.

“The allegations against Mr. Brough are serious, and we take them seriously. Every one of Mr. Brough’s constituents should too,” said Craig. “South County deserves a representative who isn’t dogged by allegations of the worst kind of behavior toward women.”

The Republican Party of Orange County in September called on Brough to not seek reelection and to retire at the end of his current term.

Several accusers have made their stories public through press reports: One said that, after almost two years of sexual comments and advances, Brough pressed himself against her at a Sacramento hotel in 2015 and propositioned her for sex. In 2011, according to another accuser, Brough grabbed her by the shoulders from behind, propositioned her, and refused to let her go. A third said that in 2018 Brough put his hand on a wall behind her, blocked her from moving, and began touching her face and neck. She says he told her, “We should get out of here… You look like the kind of girl who would like to have fun.”

“Accusations about Brough’s conduct have been made by women who knew Mr. Brough and worked with or around him, including an elected Orange County Supervisor,” said Mr. Craig. “Several of them told friends shortly after Mr. Brough approached them and have filed formal complaints against him. They’ve taken risks by coming forward.”

Brough is the County’s only incumbent elected official who hasn’t been endorsed by the Orange County Republican Party or the California Republican Party. Because of the accusations, The Lincoln Club of Orange County and The New Majority rescinded their endorsements of Brough in September.

Brough was also warned by the California Fair Political Practices Commission about the misuse of campaign funds for a week-long trip to Paris in July of 2016. That commission is also said to be investigating a complaint alleging that Brough spent roughly $200,000 in campaign funds on personal expenses over four years including meals, cigars, a custom liquor cabinet, cell phone bills, and family vacations.

Brough is the Assemblyman for California’s 73rd Assembly District, which includes Mission Viejo, Laguna Niguel, Dana Point, San Clemente and other South Orange County cities and county areas.

Good for these groups.

Tyler Diep

Dec 092019
 

With the sudden filing of Janet Nguyen vs Tyler Diep in AD-72 – the Democrats believe an already competitive race may be an easier pickup. Diep is vulnerable and his personal conduct before and since being elected is the subject of legend and may end up on the pages of Right on Daily (and maybe local media outlets). Don’t forget that this is overlaid by the CA-48 race (Michelle Park Steel) that will draw a likely $10 Million.

Tyler Diep

In AD-74, a democrat is holding an R-leaning seat and there is a massive schism in the OCGOP that deadlocked an endorsement. While Kelly Empty has limited resources, a handful of people still trying to wield influence are attempting to push the volatile Ernby over the line in to the March runoff. This increases the level of difficulty for the GOP significantly let alone for Diane Dixon who has at least triple the resources of Mrs. Ernby but will be forced to expend them all to deal with the stubborn challenge.

Kelly Ernby.

AD-68: Stephen Choi is considered extremely vulnerable and he hurt himself by attempting to defend his colleague William “Bill” Brough. Brough’s spiraling scandal is affecting the entire area. Choi’s troubles are compounded by the vulnerable John Moorlach SD-37 and the Congressional Race where Katie Porter could have $10Million come in on her behalf. Choi’s opponent was fundraising off of his AD-73 related gaffe.

AD-55: Phillip Chen is also considered vulnerable now. AD-55 is overlaid by the Ling-Ling-Ling Chang Senate Seat (SD-29) and millions coming to avenge the recall of Josh Newman. Ling-Ling-Ling is viewed as the next most likely to bolt the GOP as she is as liberal as Mayes or Maienschein are. The CA-39 Race (Young Kim) is also overlaid on this and will be drawing massive outside money as well.

Which brings us to AD-73. There is zero incentive for the legislative democrats to play this straight. With Bill Brough being on a rampage to prove himself innocent (and everyone else around him wrong), the democrats want him to make the fall runoff. If Brough makes the AD-73 runoff against a democrat the FPPC investigation and the sexual misconduct investigation are all but guaranteed to drop. If they were baseless, they would be coming out whenever and no one would be talking about them in the halls of the legislature.

The refuseniks on the OCGOP who refuse to endorse anyone for any reason and any time before filing can thank themselves for enabling Brough to feel comfortable filing for re-election. Other groups and other people took action before the primary – but the OCGOP whose voice was the loudest waited until the day after filing to finally stand against Brough. I had criticized Fred Whitaker until around mid September as it was clear then that he had arrived at the conclusion that Brough’s victims were legitimate and that Brough was a problem. Unfortunately, Whitaker is not a strong or persuasive person and had to wait until filing closed to get Brough dealt with.

The democrats did not miss this dynamic. While the Orange County Republican world is (finally) aligned against Brough – the democrats know the weakness and knew that Republican “leadership” as in Marie Waldron protecting a leadership vote, were running interference for Brough. (All while knowing at least 3 weeks in advance Mayes was going to bolt parties) The significance of Chad Mayes leaving the GOP is that he was a leadership vote for Waldron, so all this sandbagging to protect Brough was for naught.

Think it through – it took 6 months of relentless pounding by the Right on Daily Blog AND dozens of other state level media articles to finally get the movement that has only happened in the last three weeks! (Regarding AD-73) It is as if some were hoping against hope they’d never be forced to act!

From Ben Adler Capitol Public Radio and Stephen Frank:

The California Legislature spent nearly $2 million last year investigating sexual harassment accusations involving lawmakers, staffers and lobbyists, and received 15 new allegations — including four against state senators and two separate complaints against an Assembly member.

This newly released data, obtained by CapRadio as part of a Legislative Open Records Act request, is from 2018 and the first month of 2019. The response includes no names, which is consistent with the same data released in the past.

But CapRadio’s request for data on all allegations made since January has so far been denied.

That means these newly released details about sexual harassment at the state Capitol will be the last ones the public ever sees — unless the Legislature chooses to disclose information from its newly formed, joint Senate-Assembly Workplace Conduct Unit.

Read the article carefully and cross-reference it with what I have been told from several political insiders: The Bill Brough investigation will be completed sometime around mid December (now) and sent to the joint committee. What they do with the information and investigation is up to the leadership (as in the dem majority) of the Assembly. I’ve been told that Anthony Rendon and the other Democrat leaders fancying a complete wipe-out of Republicans in Orange County will be forestalling the release of the report.

The failure of GOP Groups to act decisively earlier and take out the trash could bite us yet again. We’ve seen Bill Brough’s issues spill over in to AD-68. With the air of scandal barely below the surface in AD-72, you have to wonder if your intrepid blogger has connected the dots correctly between the rumored delay of the Brough Report and the refusal of the legislature to release records to the Capitol Public Radio crew whose lawsuit victory allowed us to see the #MeToo stuff that we actually did see.

I am thrilled that the OCGOP endorsed an opponent, Laurie Davies against Bill Brough. I am also thrilled that the OC Lincoln Club did as well a couple days before filing closed. I am waiting on the OC New Majority to do the deed as well in public. I now hope this effort is enough to overcome name ID and incumbency – especially with Ed Sachs deciding to file in what looks like a Brough-level temper tantrum when the OC Lincoln Club picked Davies over him. Ed Sachs has increased the level of difficulty exponentially to get Brough out of the top two.

Bill Brough will affect every single race in Orange County: SD-29, SD-37, AD-55, AD-68, AD-72, AD-73 and AD-74. The 4 Congressional Races were being doubly impacted until Duncan Hunter Jr. pled guilty and bailed out. (The four are CA-38, CA-45, CA-48 and CA-49)

Remember one of your intrepid blogger’s old adages – NEVER EVER RELY ON A JUDGE OR AN INVESTIGATION TO DO WHAT YOU COULD NOT DO AT THE BALLOT BOX. This means to everyone reading this from Orange County – make sure you join your intrepid blogger and make sure Bill Brough gets buried. Please.

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.

I urge people looking for an alternative to the Communist Jackson Hinkle and the Monster Gene James to support Christina Setler for San Clemente City Council. 

Mail. With an OCGOP endorsement you get $.25 stamps vs $.50 stamps. The bulk mail permit is a big deal. I’ve been of the opinion that the OCGOP Endorsement was pushed hard by political insiders and was a joke. Now we see the endgame. I was pretty much done writing about Gene James until I received a copy of the OCGOP mailer. I can’t sit in silence with the only political party I have ever known following this disaster off a cliff.

Read More about Jackson Hinkle Here. < this is the democrat supported candidate. (See also #OCCUPYICE #ANITFA, etc…)

I will follow up later on how this mailer was financed and who produced it. I don’t have enough proof to pin it on the owner of the outlet mall (only a $25K check to the OCGOP by him) for financing it or Jim Bieber for producing and sending this out. I can only tell you it is my opinion that those two were the players.

The OCGOP should be ashamed of themselves for endorsing this disaster. Note that Assemblyman William “Bill” Brough is nowhere to be found on this mailer.

Research has indicated several new issues about Gene James – a foreclosure in 2011, a wage garnishment in 2012 because he refused to pay a $12,000 Judgement despite earning $300k a year and the Federal Tax Lien was actually 8 liens levied over a 3 year period.

The Gene James Scorecard:
8 Federal Tax Liens
3 State Tax Liens
1 Foreclosure
4 Civil Judgments

Get a good look – 8 separate liens levied on 7 separate dates spread out over 4 years!

You don’t get 11 lifetime tax liens from being a responsible citizen. Given that Gene James first judgment occurred in 1992, he has a lifetime pattern of willfully refusing to pay his bills. Gene James can not be trusted to manage the finances of San Clemente under any circumstances, much less the cop-hating communist Jackson Hinkle.

Your Intrepid Blogger is also in receipt of documents from the divorce from his second wife. The Marriage lasted 11 months. In the Divorce Documents, it clearly states that Gene James was making $305,000 a year as the national loss control officer for Jack in the Box.

Despite making $305,000 a year, Gene James could not afford to pay cash for a car nor qualify for an auto loan. Quoting the divorce documents:

Despite Respondent’s claims that he earns $305,000 per year or more, he has a very bad credit history. Recently, he attempted to finance a vehicle and was unable to secure suitable financing without my assistance. We jointly purchased a 2008 Honda Accord, which Respondent Drives. I request that Respondent be ordered to make all of the payments on the vehicle during the pendency of these proceedings and until a determination is made regarding to whom the vehicle will be rewarded.

There is a theme here. From another Ex (this is an ex-girlfriend)

XXXXX met Gene on Match.com in 2003, Gene represented himself as divorced.  He was extremely attentive to XXXXX and her 2 young sons, 7 and 9 yrs, in the beginning and quickly moved into their home.  They got engaged and Gene spoke to her sons about changing their last name to James.   Gene wasn’t divorced but was separated from his 1st wife, YYYY.  YYYY and their sons lived in Ohio.  They had 3 sons, about 21+ yrs, about 18 yrs and 15 yrs.  He had a verbally violent relationship with YYYY; screaming and cursing at her whenever there was phone contact.  Gene wanted to purchase a large screen TV and stand in 2004 and was unable to qualify for the credit card.  Diane found a court judgment paper under the passenger seat of Gene’s company car and saw that AVI Food Systems, his prior employer, had a large judgment against Gene in an amount close to $50,000.  It was then discovered that Gene had not filed or paid Federal or State taxes since 2001He refused to file taxes or address the judgment.  Collection agencies are now calling and sending letters to Gene.  Gene had defaulted on several credit cards after maxing out the credit limit.  He negotiated a much smaller amount to pay these off and borrowed $25000 from XXXXX, that she had borrowed against a home equity loan…

Gene’s second wife got a $12,000 Judgement against Gene James. If you read pages 5 and 6 of the documents – she had to Garnish Gene James’ wages to get the final $6,000 as he tried to skip out on paying the bill. Remember, Gene James made over $300,000 a year at the time (2008). He was also Liened by the IRS a few years later for 8,521.63 for not paying income taxes in 2008.

When you make $300,000 plus a year and attempt to skip on two bills of $6,000 and $8,500 – this is a willful and deliberate act. 8 Federal Tax Liens, 3 State Tax Liens, 4 Civil Judgements, a Wage Garnishment and a Foreclosure. Is this the new definition of a Conservative Republican?

The Orange County Republican Party and State Senator Pat Bates should be ashamed of themselves over this endorsement of Gene James. To Be Continued as we detail the Tax Liens and we tell the story from one of his Ex-Girlfriends who knows a lot.
