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.

The last laugh of course will be Tyler Diep when he bolts the GOP.

Look at the Nurses Union Pouring Money in to Tyler Diep!

Look at Tyler Diep’s Campaign. Click here to see the labor unions and bay area liberals donating to him. Iron Workers, Carpenters, IBEW, SEIU and others are clearly delineated. You see Govern California Courage Committee – this is a consortium of Bay Area tech liberals like David Crane, Arthur Rock and others that hunt conservatives down in Primaries.

Have a look at the notice from the CAGOP about Tomorrow’s Board Meeting:

Delegate Notice: Monday, February 10, 2020  
In accordance with our bylaws, the California Republican Party Board of Directors will meet to consider endorsements in the following districts on Thursday, February 13, 2020 at 6:30PM.  
Tamika Hamilton – CD 3 
John Dennis – CD 12 
Alison Hayden – CD 15
Ritesh Tandon – CD 17 
Mike Garcia – CD 25 
Bridget Mahoney – AD 22
This email serves as notice to the delegates at least 72 hours in advance of the Board’s pending action on these endorsements.
Delegates wishing to participate in this discussion should do one of two things:
1. Submit comments in writing to [email protected] with the subject line “[district name] Endorsement Comment” prior to the Board meeting.  Comments received by 9AM on Wednesday, February 12 will be provided to the Board of Directors prior to the meeting.
2. Call into the BOD meeting on Thursday, February 13, 2020 at 6:30PM. Email Danielle Cullum at [email protected] for details on call-in information. 
Where is AD-72? It is known by this blogger that Orange County (100% of AD-72) Requested that the CAGOP revoke the endorsement of Tyler Diep. The by-laws of the CAGOP state clearly that a candidate must have the endorsements of the local parties consisting of at least 80% of the Republican Population for the candidate to be eligible for a state party endorsement. It looks like Jessica Patterson – and more importantly Jeff Randle the consultant and real power behind the curtain are thumbing their noses at the OCGOP. Diep is no longer eligible for a Party Endorsement, it should be revoked.
The CAGOP appears to have ignored the local party – and as I have been writing AD-72 is not the only place where Party Leaders are actively participating in the Murder of the CAGOP.
To be continued…
Tyler Diep.

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.

William “Bill” Brough

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.
