The AD-73 Race has a personal angle. I went after Anna Bryson and to a lesser extent Jesse Petrilla in that primary. The beneficiary was the beleaguered and now scandal-riddled Bill Brough. Contrary to popular belief I did not work for anyone when I ran that drill.

The AD-73 Race in 2014 was also a personal first. My Wife was attacked publicly by Art Sanchez on the OC Politics Blog and the post was live for about a day before someone called my wife to tell her that her photo was on a blog site from Southern California about some political stuff her husband was doing. Art Sanchez attempted to run over my wife to get to me, as he was a big time Anna Bryson supporter. Art Pedroza (who runs OC Politics) pulled the post and later expelled me from his website.

My Wife has been attacked two more times since then. Once was in 2017 after the 2016 AD06 Primary by people friendly to the winner Kevin Kiley. Kiley’s brother is on staff in a local church we were basically run out of in retaliation for my role in helping one of Kiley’s opponents. The most recent incident was in 2018, by former Chief Deputy Ray Wood, a Chief for the former Sheriff of Riverside County who I helped defeat. They created memes of my wife to troll her ministry page and social media, sent her IM’s and had people call her employer and an attempt to get her fired.

In addition to the attacks on my wife, I’ve received 27 legal demand letters since 2011, been attacked front page above the fold in the Sacramento Bee, and have been banned for life from two blogs and the CRA.

Anyone that thinks I sit in my office lobbing bombs and that it is all fun and games should think again. The political world is full of scum, slime, cowards, backstabbers, hypocrites, charlatans, dirtbags and other forms of parasitical amoeba. If it was not for the fact that I feel called to be in this game, there is no amount of money I could make from anyone that is just compensation. As such, I feel little restraint in how I approach the political blood-sport.

When Art Sanchez did what he did, he signed Anna Bryson’s death warrant. At the time, $400K worth of independent money was pouring in to her assistance. She lost and Brough made the runoff with the democrat. At the time, the battering that Bryson took on the OC Politics Blog was viewed as devastating. In a sense I avenged my wife. I was told later that Anna Bryson’s husband was talking about and researching legal action against me. (As if Sanchez attacking my wife was not enough)

I coined the term “Oligarchy of Controlled Failure” as a moniker for the folks in charge of and profiting off of the CAGOP for the last 20 years. It is the opinion of this blogger they could care less how many seats the GOP has left, if they are one of them. They could care less about the results of the election as long as the checks cash. They could care less if the CAGOP is a carcass as long as they are in control.

I’ve been around the CAGOP for 22 years and have watched the CAGOP lose repeatedly. I’ve seen people get rich off of losing. In 2012, when Luis Buhler directed $100,000 in to the Placer GOP Central Committee race to target myself and three others, I am sure a consultant pocketed several thousand dollars off of that operation. What a waste. Buhler wasn’t done – $3,000,000 plus was dumped in to Central Committee Races in 2016, including Orange County. The goal was to elect liberals and country clubbers over conservatives. These same people engineered the staff infection that is the delegate universe at the state party in order to ensure that Travis Allen was not elected Chair of the State Party. In all, consultants wasted $45 Million of Charles Munger’s money with a ton of it spent picking winners in Republican races.

It appears now that the people that control the CAGOP are obsessed with trying to recruit anyone that is not a white male to run for office. In addition to the stories from SD-05, SD-23 and CA-45 where white males were told not to apply, it appears the same has happened in AD-74. There were apparently several suitors and in particular, two guys that had access to money, had connections and were young and photogenic. They were told not to bother. The establishment decided on Diane Dixon, and rolled off of her onto an unknown trial lawyer by the name of Kelly Ernby. Ernby appears to have some issues of her own, appears to be controlled by some old familiar names in OCGOP politics and is working in the consumer fraud division of the OC DA’s office (the equivalent of being a traffic cop or a meter maid).

I am currently writing about the incumbent protection plan. In particular, I am being made aware on an almost daily basis of the machinations being made to protect Bill Brough (AD-73) and the Scandal-Riddled Duncan Hunter Jr. (who may yet be exonerated) Time and time again I’ve watched and talked to people that knew the incumbent was a feckless, ineffective loser, yet they still endorsed and/or donated to the incumbent. We get what we deserve.

I am currently writing about the CAGOP being broke/bankrupt/cash challenged. The CAGOP had $330K in their State Account as of the 5/18 cutoff. I’ve seen about $150K raised since. The Dems have over $11 Million. The CAGOP has a net $26,500 in their federal account, the dems have $1,500,000. If that ain’t broke/bankrupt, I don’t know what is. It’s wrong and we were told that Travis Allen would cause exactly this if he was elected chairman of the CAGOP.

The inserted photo from Facebook shows that people were attempting to suppress one of the blogs I wrote about the financial condition of the CAGOP by running a spam complaint drill on facebook. Once again, the Oligarchy of Controlled Failure at work.

What I also know is a whole bunch of good people are on the outside looking in. Documents obtained from a FOIA related to a campaign finance caper show that CAGOP leadership were making contingency plans as far back as 2011 in case Central Committees fell in to the hands of “The Tea Party”. (More on that shortly) This solidifies the evidence of contempt for the “little people” by the power brokers. This is also evidence they are willfully attempting to shrink the opportunities for participation in order to control things.

The consultants and staff that control the CAGOP are currently in the process of re-writing the CAGOP Platform seeking to shred the social issues out of it. It is the 1,000 year old argument of how to win elections, compromise or distinguish yourself from your opponents. They choose compromise. This is a subset of how they picked the CAGOP delegates to ensure an outcome from the 2019 Chairman’s election. They have the ability now to realize a long-held dream of shredding the CAGOP Platform and the real grassroots have been marginalized out of the process as the party leadership at all levels marginalize the party statewide.

I am watching the same people doing the same things over and over again. I have a choice, leave the GOP and do something else – or use the platform (Right On Daily) I’ve earned over the last 22 years to hold them accountable in an attempt to change the situation.

Bill Brough’s situation is a microcosm of everything I’ve seen in 22+ years of politics. It is important to get this one right as our numbers are in freefall, and irrelevancy is upon us. Will we acquiesce in the name of expediency or will the weak leadership of this party finally assert themselves? 22 years of experience tells me that we will have to drag Brough out of office in a political bodybag with our own side in the way the whole time.

Incumbent protection. Ever since I got active in the CAGOP – it has been always support your incumbents. This was on display when the Tehama GOP actually reached 2/3 to endorse Bob Williams over Incumbent Assemblyman Dan Logue. The Lawyers at the top levels of CAGOP leadership overturned the endorsement on a technicality so Logue could get the statewide GOP endorsement (which requires no county committees opposed) – further when other Cent Coms deadlocked against incumbents (such as Placer failing to endorse either Gaines) the same lawyers re-wrote the GOP rules to call anything other than reaching 2/3 not acting. Please note – I think Dan Logue is awesome and was one of the best Assemblymembers we’ve had in a generation, but what was wrong is wrong. It is the BS with the endorsement procedures that caused me to abandon support for former GOP Chair Tom Del Becarro long before I knew about his personal issues.

These same feckless leaders of the OCGOP once loved Don Wagner as an Assemblyman, and then he attempted a rematch against Senator John Moorlach a year after losing a special election.  They abandoned and threatened Don Wagner so much that Wagner did not file. A few years later, Don Wagner gets elected OC Supervisor and these people are helping him retaliate against his opponents in the Supervisor race! I have whiplash. Moorlach? Useless to the GOP save a short period of time when he raised a few bucks. Don Wagner had given over $500k to GOP candidates, after the way he was treated, I’d bet he is not that motivated to do a thing now.

Do you wonder why folks like Kevin Kiley (AD-06) and Steven Choi (AD-68) sat on $400K plus in 2018 when their colleagues got smoked out of office? (Beyond Kiley’s own ambition) Why should they help, there are no consequences and they can count on the party establishment’s incumbent protection plan. Former Assemblymember Matthew Harper AD-74 was useless on a party level (actually more so than John Moorlach) and had a horrendous reputation for anger and abrasiveness yet no one in the OC GOP would take out the trash. The democrats obliged and took out Harper themselves.

This willful blindness and refusal to police incumbents has had disastrous consequences. Bill Brough in AD-73 is the latest example. As your intrepid blogger is digging in to the record of Bill Brough going back to the late 2000’s there is a disturbing pattern emerging. It is the opinion of this blogger based on evidence gathered in the background that Bill Brough’s rampage through the lives of women has been enabled by people within the ranks of GOP leadership that have covered for and enabled him.

This incumbent protection plan is quite similar to the democrats being caught (but never held to account by their willing whores in the California media) covering up for one dirtbag after another, only to be forced to throw them over the side when brave people persisted in outing the skeletons. (see also Ridley-Thomas, Dabby, Filner, Wright, Yee, Calderon, Autumn Burke, Bocanegra, Christina Garcia, Bob Hertzberg, Kevin Shelley, Lockyer, Efrain Carillo and even their state Chair Eric Bauman) I’ve been told by several capitol insiders there are at least 20-30 more legislators (all of them democrats) that are dirty as sin.

As to the Republicans, Devon Mathis (AD-26) was found to have been unjustly and falsely accused apparently by a former chief of staff that was fired for actual issues. Former Senator Ted Gaines’ Chief of Staff was fired by the rules committee for years of abuses while Gaines did nothing about it. At least Chad Mayes’ (AD-42) dalliances were consensual.

The Orange County Register wrote an article detailing the OC Supervisor (then councilmember) Lisa Bartlett story regarding Bill Brough’s physical advances. BTW – thank you OC register for the attribution. Having had my stuff stolen for years without attribution (I believe mostly by the Sacramento Bee and Southern California Bloggers), the journalistic integrity of the liberal OC and the OC Register is appreciated.

The OC Register story yielded some key nuggets. They are critical to understanding why Bill Brough is mortally wounded politically.

#1 A Second woman is now on the record. She joins my source and Lisa Bartlett. Neither my informant nor Maria Elena Banks have anything to gain by coming forward.

Another woman, Maria Elena Banks — a Laguna Beach real estate agent who helped with campaigns for Brough, Bartlett and other county Republicans — on Friday described a similar encounter that took place in a Dana Point bar about five years ago.

Banks said Brough put his hand on her leg under her skirt and, without removing his hand, asked if he could come to her house. She said she told him no, and he dropped it.

She added that she’s motivated to speak up now, and to support Bartlett, in part because she hopes to send a message: “This has gotten to the point where I’m tired of guys doing this.”

Sounds awfully familiar to the story I wrote from my informant the former legislative staffer.

#2 Bill Brough has been caught in a colossal lie. He may not have even realize what he did. Quoting the OC Register:

A third woman, who has not been identified, filed a complaint against Brough with the state Assembly. The details of the complaint are not public, but a March 2018 letter from the committee, which Brough gave to the Register, says the state found “the factual findings reported by the investigator did not support a determination that (Brough) violated any Assembly policy.”

Brough said he felt vindicated by that letter, saying the outside investigator found the accusation “unsubstantiated.”

This is critical – in 2018, when Ed Sachs was lining up a primary challenge to Bill Brough, your intrepid blogger did some digging. In that research I asked Brough to his face if a complaint was ever filed with the Assembly Rules committee 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 it. He also appears to have lied to several other political leaders in the area in denying the existence of an Assembly Rules Committee Complaint – even as the feckless Fred Whitaker is trying to figure out how to maintain the incumbent protection plan.

Please note that Brough’s complaint was dismissed on a technicality. There was only one witness, not two. As I wrote previously, people with knowledge of the complaint indicated that the investigators may well have suppressed testimony from other witnesses and I’ve been informed of the possibility that other members of the legislature may have influenced the outcome as well. At this time, I only have confidential informants but no evidence to support either claim.

As I type this blog, Fred Whitaker is working behind the scenes to stymie any sort of rebellion against the incumbent by the rank and file committee. It is time to shell Fred Whitaker with phone calls and emails. While quick to condemn Chad Mayes, Whitaker appears to be protecting Bill Brough.

Once Bill Brough resigns, Fred Whitaker should resign in disgrace not only because of his refusal and failure to lead – but the shellacking at the ballot box under his tenure as the Chairman of the Orange County Republican Party.

To be continued.

Blogger’s Note – the story I wrote about with a confidential informant former legislative staffer was corroborated by a well-known Orange County Republican Political figure who was an eye witness to part of the incident in the bar in Sacramento. Should I be challenged on the accounts or sued for libel, both the OC political figure and the victim indicated they would back me up.

For several years, there had been rumors about the personal conduct of Bill Brough. He is reputed to be a heavy drinker with loose personal behavior. In particular, it was alleged that Brough has had multiple incidences of sexual harassment, including alleged outright issues of sexual assault (aka physical contact). Brough is the AD73 Incumbent Assemblyman.

Your intrepid blogger has learned that there indeed was a complaint filed with the Rules Committee against Brough that went nowhere. Brough had publicly denied there was ever a complaint. He has also publicly denied wrongdoing. It is the opinion of this blogger that he lied.

It also appears that the OCGOP is so deeply concerned about these issues that Bill Brough did not receive a consent calendar endorsement at their regular meeting Monday evening.

Rather, OC Supervisor Lisa Bartlett spoke out forcefully against endorsing Bill Brough to a stunned audience. She detailed in graphic terms the incident of Sexual Assault/Harassment that she personally endured at the hands of Mr. Brough.

It is clear to this blogger that Brough has had enablers covering for him for years. It is also clear that Brough has had a litany of issues related to intoxication and his out of control behavior that occurs once intoxicated. Sans proof (aka the victims talking to me, or documented evidence of criminal/civil proceedings) I’ve stayed quiet.

The OC GOP sat in stunned silence as Lisa Bartlett opened up publicly for the first time about the alleged incident that was widely known but never confirmed by Mrs. Bartlett. The stunned committee voted Unanimously (save one holdout) to refer Brough’s endorsement to the endorsement committee for a “Closed Door Investigation”.

Bill Brough’s life is starting to unravel as is this budding scandal with multiple alleged victims. Add AD73 to the list of GOP seats that could be imperiled by the coming election.

IN CA45, your intrepid blogger has received information that suggests retired Lt. Col Greg Raths was told not to run for CA45. The issues appear to be nothing of his qualifications (he is a local councilmember and mayor) but rather a desire of the “party leadership” to check demographic boxes with their recruits.

It has been put to this blogger by more than one source that none of Rath’s alleged weaknesses were the issue, rather, he was told not to run because he is an old white guy. Whoops.

Having seen the SD-05 race detonate over similar circumstances with a poorly vetted recruit, one wonders if other shoes are going to drop there in CA-45 as well.

I will have follow up information on Raths as the more I learn about him the more I am open to his candidacy for higher office.

The OCGOP appears to be a dumpster fire and Fred Whitaker, the OCGOP Chairman is being forced to exert leadership contrary to his record for being a weak conflict avoider. The decisions the OCGOP make in the next year could very well determine if Orange County will turn Red Again or become a democrat stronghold.

To Be Continued…

P.S. I was involved in the AD-73 race a while ago when Brough won. I did not work for anyone, but I wrote a series of blogs on the OC Politics Blog where I decimated Anna Bryson who was the establishment choice in that race. As such, I’ve kept an eye on that district since…

Typical of when your intrepid blogger writes and incendiary post related to internal CAGOP Politics, there are multiple responses. People whose opinion I trust and who I consider friends posited a lot of information confirming most all facts as presented, however offering a different conclusion about what they mean. They all asked to not be identified, but I had multiple conversations today with multiple people.

Confirmed: It appears that the donors donating to the CAGOP are giving less.

Confirmed: It appears that there are fewer donors to the CAGOP than previously.

No one is arguing that.

Confirmed: Over half the CAGOP staff is gone.

People are positing differing views of what that means. Most CAGOP insiders believe this was pre-planned before the exit of Jim Brulte and is not in and of itself newsworthy. It is possible a few staffers were terminated for losing or poor job performance? I have a hard time accepting that dumping 50-67% of your staff is in accordance with a plan, it appears to be anticipating cash flow issues.

Confirmed: Over half the CA GOP Assembly Caucus Staff and Senate Caucus staff are gone.

People offer differing views on that as well stipulating that to be a result of the loss of seats in the legislature and a corresponding reduction in the budget for staff. (For those of you scoring at home… that is -3 in the Senate and -8 in the Assembly since 2012) They are also telling your intrepid blogger that the Caucus carnage and the CAGOP Staff Carnage are separate issues. I am of the belief these things don’t happen in a vacuum.

Confirmed: Luis Buhler and someone who may or may not be David Reade are running a drill to eviscerate the CAGOP Platform and make it match the “Reframing the Message” agenda. Remember, both made several calls regarding Platform Committee Elections. I have been assured that Luis Buhler and crew do not have the support necessary to shred the CAGOP Platform and that they are operating independently of leadership. However, the actions of these men are draining time and resources away from other people that should be focused on the March 2020 Primary. (How many times have moderates like Buhler lectured Conservatives about intra-party warfare, yet here he is…)

Confirmed: some major consulting firms lost their contracts, (and/or exclusivity, preferential treatment for managing candidates) and still other consultants had their retainers slashed. Right on Daily can and will name names if necessary.

Confirmed: the disaster with the CAGOP Senate Caucus recruit in CA SD-05.

Confirmed: Most of the decision-makers and top paid consultants of the CAGOP (Pre David Carney) were and are Never-Trumpers. This sends one heck of a contradictory message (or perhaps a consistent message with those that want to shred the CAGOP platform) to the rank and file GOP voter in California.

Those that spoke to me were adamant that the CAGOP was not bankrupt despite the layoffs, reduced donations and smaller number of donors. While I was not offered a look at the finances of the CAGOP I was told by one person who claimed direct and detailed knowledge of the situation that the CAGOP “was in good shape”. This person is someone I have considered reliable for a long time.

As of today, no one has contested the claim that newly minted Assembly/Senate political director David Carney is being paid $25,000 a month. It is clear however that Carney is being selective in who he reaches out to or returns the contact of. While accounts of his job description differ and the accounts of the origin of his presence in California differ – since his arrival bodies have been flying and operatives are coming in from out of state. Out of State Consultants are getting key GOP races in California as well.

Does Jessica Patterson have anything to do with the apparent house cleaning? Similar to Carney, she has her list of people she communicates with. While I want her to succeed and the CAGOP to succeed, what I am seeing paints a pattern that I have laid out. My friends on the inside disagree with my conclusions.

I have obtained an additional batch of information relating to the interpersonal relations, internal arguments and the like as it relates to the leadership. None of it appears to be anything abnormal and at this time I will refrain from writing about it. I will say that just because these sorts of communicative issues and leadership issues are normal, it does not make them right. I reserve the right to write about those in the future should they become noteworthy.

Having permanent residence on several people’s enemies list, I feel little restraint in airing news on this website. That said, the questions I asked several people I communicated with was how could I draw different conclusions based on what I have observed? I have demonstrated in the past that I will retract information proven demonstrably false.

There is also a concerted effort to strangle the intelligence coming out of the insides of the CAGOP, usually this sort of effort is run in an attempt to both control an outcome as well to keep political advantage for potential news. My sources for the negative news about the operations of the CAGOP are impeccable. The traffic on this blog indicates that few, if any on the inside of the CAGOP are ignoring the information presented here.

This gets me back to the platform. The lack of leadership on this issue by Jessica Patterson, in my opinion tells me volumes. Either she wants the platform to be shredded or she is unwilling to cross swords with the crazed Luis Buhler. This when juxtaposed with the secrecy, separation, reduction in donors/donations and the surface circumstances of multiple layoffs is the body of evidence my pessimism is based on. Jim Brulte stamped out Luis Buhler’s effort to gut the platform in 2015.

I am also frustrated with the persistent cancer of #nevertrumpers in CAGOP leadership who derisively look down their nose at the #MAGA people. I worked for Ben Carson because I wanted to see Trump lose the 2016 GOP Primary, then Trump knocked Carson out of the race and the day Carson endorsed the President (March 15 2016) I did too. That seems to be too much to ask of a whole crew of hacks whose egos have never recovered from the loss of control they felt in the 2016 CAGOP primary that have made a career out of losing election races. It is the opinion of this blogger that there is a connection between this crew and the effort to gut the CAGOP Platform in to a mushy unrecognizable mess.

Further evidence to support my conclusion is presented if you’ve seen the new brochures made for voter registration. On the brochure, the issues they present in order to “Motivate” someone to register Republican are watered down failed experiments of a rigged focus group. The content of the Brochure was so uninspiring and “safe” that it was difficult to read – it was clearly guided by the reframing the message blather.

While I respect those that reached out to discuss facts and my read on them with me, I disagree with their conclusions (But will still report on what they tell me in confidence) and will continue to have a negative opinion (the reasons why I have stated clearly) until facts and occurrences prove otherwise. Anyone is welcome to reach out and have a dialogue and present facts, evidence and their opinion on things political. You can remain anonymous.

P.S. I am not being paid to write about anything CAGOP post Feb Convention, this is all activist blogging.

Jun 172019
 

Update: Since the original posting of this blog, other insiders with knowledge of the finances have been candid with your intrepid blogger about the financial situation. There will be a follow up blog posted tomorrow. They also confirmed that our accounts of the Platform Committee Drama and attempts to eviscerate the CAGOP platform are 100% accurate. 

I wrote about the CAGOP Platform and how the liberals / consultants / staff have a majority of the delegates to achieve the lifelong goal of most all the liberal GOP’ers I’ve met. This goal is to get rid of social issues from the CAGOP platform and compromise.

They are so strident in this belief that they have spent millions fighting conservatives instead of democrats and worse when elections spiral – they are the first to blame conservatives despite their consistent financial advantage in elections.

Back in 1998, I was warned that Liberal GOP-ers believed Conservatives were the enemy and that once they had control of the party, they would destroy it. I’ve seen the contempt. I’ve seen the manipulations, back-stabbing, double-dealing and the control games.

I believe that were it not for Jim Brulte, the moderates would have bankrupt the CAGOP 6 years ago.

The CAGOP is bankrupt now. A close knit oligarchy within the oligarchy are discussing this fact – away from the CAGOP’s board of directors. The Oligarchy of Controlled Failure has met the reckoning. There is no more Jim Brulte to keep the lights on. They are trying to figure out how to borrow money or they could be shuttering the K St Headquarters shortly. They are also reputed to be discussing Bankruptcy proceedings.

We were told that Travis Allen would bankrupt the CAGOP, donors would not donate. So, the liberal GOP-ers. the consultants and the staffers rallied and selected party delegates that would vote for the desired candidates. We had to elect the ex-staffer ally of the establishment Chair of the CAGOP because She could raise money and keep the party going!

Now –

The CAGOP is Bankrupt

Major Consultants have lost their CAGOP Contracts

CAGOP Staff has been cut dramatically and more layoffs are coming

Caucus Staff has been cut significantly

Others have had their retainers slashed

GOP Recruits are failing background checks leaving beleaguered leaders to try and find replacements, still other target races are languishing without candidates because no quality people will run

Many GOP incumbents lack the resources to defend themselves from the coming dem onslaught in 2020.

Kevin McCarthy and his crew’s bid to control everything has detonated in his face.

A major CAGOP player resigned as executive director of the Southern California New Majority largely because the New Majority is broke.

The Chair of the LAGOP Richard Sherman is reputedly resigning any day now. I’ve also been told at least three other county chairs are talking openly about resigning.

Disgraced former Assembly Minority leader Kristen Olsen has made a reputed $70k a month as a lobbyist against CAGOP values in 2019.

Despite getting run out as Assembly Minority Leader, Chad Mayes was a larger donor to CAGOP causes than every GOP elected not named Brian Dahle.

This is vindication for all the conservatives that have been subject to withering attacks from the establishment. The establishment has had control of the CAGOP for at least a decade and the numbers have deteriorated severely. Look at the meme of Kevin McCarthy. That’s a net loss of 11 legislative seats (plus Maineschein for an even dozen) and 8 seats in Congress.

We are sifting through the ashes of Hiroshima. I am actually glad now in retrospect that Travis Allen was not elected Chairman. There is no Conservative to blame, the establishment owns all the failure. There is no Jim Brulte to mask the failure. What we have is the legacy of the oligarchy of controlled failure – some of whom are now getting quoted in statewide news outlets trashing the GOP they once made millions off of.

As I write this – Luis Buhler, David Reade, and other consultants are presiding over a re-write of the CAGOP Platform. Deborah Wilder, the NorCal Vice Chair who is a leftist Republican Bay Area transplant to Nevada County is one of the prime movers. Undaunted by years of failure, they are coming for the rest of what’s left. In their wisdom, losing a dozen legislative seats in 8 years in not enough. It is time to alienate those pesky Conservatives in the GOP base. They are the last straw man to blame the abject failure on.

Luis Buhler and his crew should be proud of themselves. They are finally in position to realize their dream of detonating the CAGOP platform, but are doing so just as the party breathes out its’ last gasps of life. David Carney may well be too little too late and I do not see how the leadership of the CAGOP can pay his $25,000 a month retainer for long (given the layoffs, slashed salaries and withdrawn contracts to others). Luis directed some $3 Million in expenditures to take control of 44 GOP County Parties and almost all of them are a shambles with tons of vacancies, infighting and listless, feckless leadership. These people manipulated by-law amendments to strip people of delegates, consolidate power and the like. Now they have an unmitigated disaster they can blame on no one else.

It is infuriating to write this and at the same time It is vindicating for all of the little people that have been derided and pushed out of the process by the people that have brought us this disaster. They got it their way and they have wrecked everything.

Travis Allen is vindicated, the late Mike Spence is vindicated as are other conservative leaders that were once active in the fight. What they predicted has happened with lightening speed.

Ask yourselves, who is going to go to the CAGOP convention in September? A bunch of staffers? Consultants? For what? There’s nothing left.
