Good Riddance William “Bill” Brough.

So to the naysayers stating that the Right on Daily Expose’ on William “Bill” Brough was a political hit job, guess what? The Working Committee came out with their report finally and it indicates that the sexual harassment complaint was substantiated, 100% True and verified by other witnesses.

READ THE ENTIRE REPORT HERE

READ RENDON EXPELLING BROUGH FROM COMMITTEES HERE.

Your intrepid blogger knows and talked to the more than one victim. I knew what I was talking about then and still know now.

Remember, we broke the sssssteve Davey Story two years before it became public and we were after Bill Brough for 8 months before the voters had to do what Marie Waldron and others had to be dragged kicking and screaming to do. (Hold this pig accountable)

Little did I know that I’d be helping people victimized by Brough 30+ years ago get closure

Looks like Bill Brough is toast. No offense to toast. Now the world truly knows what I have known since I was XX years old (51 next month). He’s a scuzzbucket. Wonder what he will do now with his filthy self. I do feel sorry for his kids. He seemingly never gave them a thought as he boozed it up and tried to screw everything with a pulse. He did it to himself and got away with monstrous behavior for decades. Victimizing women,  and getting off on it. No longer. The predator has been exposed. 

All the best to you,  Mr. Park. Take care.
I edited the age at time of incidents out in order to protect the anonymity of the woman that emailed me. She was a teenager when victimized by Mr. Brough. While this is disturbing, I am really not surprised by this at all. Best wishes to the Woman who emailed me, I hope she gets some closure.
I want to dedicate the AD73 Victory to her, Heather B., Lisa B., Jennifer A, the Realtor from South OC and the at least 6 other victims whose identity I know nothing about.
It appears that the Working Committee is still investigating some of the retaliation charges as those could result in a criminal sanction. But, at least one of the victims had her retaliation charges against Brough substantiated as well – they found that Bill Brough retaliated against her because she complained about his abhorrent conduct.
I have been told that Anthony Rendon is completely stripping Bill Brough of any responsibility and committees between now and when he is out of office. (This should have been done months ago but I was told Marie Waldron did not want to ask Rendon to do it – she must have been too busy advocating for allowing sex offenders and other felons to get out of prison or signing on to letters demanding a federal bailout of California’s ghastly finances)
My guess is that the FPPC issues will be resolved in another 12-18 months as they seem to be running 2-3 years behind.
When I nuke someone on this blog – I do so believing what I write is true and endeavor to present evidence substantiating as such. Bill Brough needed to be run out of office and perhaps prosecuted for the things he has done. If Pat Bates was not termed out, I’d be advocating for her ouster as she stubbornly defied everyone and attempted to help him stay in office. She should be ashamed of herself.
Note that Bill Brough and others called the women names, liars and attempted to bully people that wanted Brough held accountable. (These include the crazed Art Sanchez and Sex Robot Sean) Today is vindication for them as well. The OCGOP despite Brough’s antics and theatrics did indeed rally around another candidate – thus giving Brough the boot pre primary.
Perhaps Ed Sachs (left) and Frank Ury (Right) need to apologize to the women they marginalized as well.
If you’ve missed many of my posts on Bill Brough – I have pasted a very long summary I did of my research and expose on this monster:

As a public service to anyone looking for material to launch hit pieces against Bill Brough, the following is the comprehensive list of everything about Brough that will give you a window into the out of control alcoholic and “pig” that currently infests AD-73. Your intrepid blogger is here to help, I don’t care who gets the credit as long as the information gets out.

Update as of 2-6-2020

Please check out our post here detailing the swamp dwellers that continued to support William “Bill” Brough despite the mounting evidence against him. Part One naming specific donors was posted 12-30-2019. It also included the major Donor Group, New Majority formally endorsing Laurie Davies against him. Part two specifically named the OC Building Industry Association and the OC Realtors for Enabling Bill Brough.

On 1-23-2020 we tore in to Bill Brough’s 1-1-2020 thru 1-18-2020 mid term campaign report. It revealed that Brough was continuing to abuse his campaign funds in defiance of the public scrutiny. It also revealed that Brough had only raised $125 since 1-1-2020 despite the swamp still donating in December of 2019

Examples of abuse included: 3 Trips to Target. 8 Notations to Lyft 7 Notations to Chevron 3 Notations to Elite Black Car – totaling over $600.  Also noted was a batch of “strategy meetings / campaign meetings”: Dana Kai Sushi x1, Frank Fats x1, Good Choice Sushi x2, Shady Lady Saloon x2, Sol Agave x1, Simon’s Cafe x2, Tony’s Deli x3, Turk’s Dana Warf x2.

While claiming the the Toll Road people were responsible for every bad thing that has even happened to him, a check of Bill Brough’s Campaign finances revealed 66(!) notations of payments to the toll road’s FASTTRAK system.

 

Bill Brough Shows Everyone Who’s Boss. Too bad for him the California Republican Party endorsed Laurie Davies and not him.

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. It was only in the days since Thanksgiving that Marie Waldron stopped defending her leadership vote and started relenting towards the onslaught. Whitaker had come around maybe a couple months prior when he had a chance to interview a couple of Brough’s victims himself, it was knowing that Whitaker had drawn the right conclusion that cause me to let off of him even as I continued to be frustrated by his lack of assertiveness.

Because of these obstacles, your intrepid blogger was forced to keep a fever pitch in the bombardment of Brough. We turned over every stone to make sure he was completely overhauled. The sad fact of the matter is that Brough will be completely destroyed and it will take years for him to restore his reputation IF he quits drinking and demonstrates a capacity to be honest.

Too many people, including Brough got fixated on your intrepid blogger because it is easier to blame a straw man than acknowledge the brutal reality.

The female victims of Bill Brough have been re-injured so many times by people making political calculations to defend Brough, and others’ weakness that I have lost count. I hope they are able to get closure and recovery.

Don’t worry dear readers – I am going to stay put as long as it takes to clean up the mess I helped create when Brough was originally elected.

Before the Primary The best the OCGOP could muster was a weak, watered down resolution calling on Bill Brough to retire. The day after filing closed, the OCGOP set fire to Bill Brough, choosing Laurie Davies 37-6. Not a single vote was cast to endorse Bill Brough, Six months after your intrepid blogger started in on Bill Brough.

Your Intrepid blogger started in on Bill Brough 6 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 Broughto 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. We’ve now detailed almost $20,000 in payments to Verizon Wireless from Brough’s Campaign account.

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 accountA 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. Later, the Lincoln Club unanimously endorsed Laurie Davies for Assembly to replace Bill Brough.

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 New Majority and 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 three remaining supporters Sex Robot Sean, the Crazed Art Sanchez and Senator Pat Bates can help lead him back to the promised land of free booze and donor-funded junkets once more.

I leave you with the words of the aforementioned Art Sanchez from 2014:

… and a candidate who proclaims he is a successful businessman, when in fact he is a lobbyist who had his personal residence go into default to the tune of around $16K. Sounds pretty successful. This candidate is not even endorsed by the elected official who he served as chief of staff for. This candidate just recently formed a consulting company in Feb. 2014, I believe, so he could actually state that he is a businessman. It appears his wife is the real breadwinner. This candidate’s biggest achievement is he voted against a ban on plastic bags. Wow.

No kidding. Tick Tock Bill Brough, tick tock…

Mar 042020
 

We did it. Thanks to your support Right On Daily played a major role in unseating a corrupt bully. William “Bill” Brough goes down. It get’s better. Sex Robot Shawn and Art Sanchez went down with him:

I don’t know how you run for office and get 2.78% of the vote or 1.17% of the vote like the crazed Art Sanchez did.

Laurie Davies finished first despite being attacked by Frank Ury 4 times in her home city of Laguna Niguel. Ury’s buddy Ed Sachs finished dead last.

Laurie’s campaign sent the following:

Mayor Laurie Davies Wins GOP Nomination
The voters of South County have overwhelmingly chosen Mayor Laurie Davies to be the Republican nominee for AD-73 in November
For Immediate Release
Contact: Peter Towey, [email protected]
Laguna Niguel, CA – Today, Mayor Laurie Davies is the clear winner to move forward into the general and as the GOP nominee to compete on the November ballot in AD-73. With 69% reporting, Mayor Davies is the top voter getter with 28% of the vote, besting the other Republican and Democrat candidates. The voters of South County have sent a clear message that it was time for someone new to have the chance to be their representative in Sacramento.
At this point in time, the GOP candidates received 60% of the total votes cast which puts Mayor Davies in a strong position as we head into the General Election.
Mayor Laurie Davies commented, “I want to thank the voters of South County for giving me the chance to be their next representative in Sacramento. I want to thank the volunteers who walked tens of thousands of doors with me, made countless hours of calls, and were there with me from the beginning. Thank you to my husband, who has been my biggest fan and encouraged me throughout this entire campaign. Thank you to all those that endorsed my candidacy and put your faith in me. I want to thank the others who also ran in this election; I know each of them put a lot of time and energy into their respective campaigns.”
“Now, as we move towards November, I plan to share my record and how I believe our community should be represented in Sacramento. I will work to defend the original Prop 13, protect our communities, and make sure to offer realistic solutions to our state’s problems rather than the radical ideas that come from the extreme liberals in Sacramento. South County needs someone in Sacramento that will fight against the socialist policies of the left and fight for what’s best for South County.”
Davies added, “I look forward to working with the rest of our great candidates running through Orange County. We have great congressional candidates that are running to best represent our communities’ values in Washington, DC, rather than just vote the party line.”
About the 73rd
The 73rd State Assembly district covers South Orange County – including the cities and communities of Aliso Viejo, Coto de Caza, Dana Point, Ladera Ranch, Laguna Hills, Laguna Niguel, Mission Viejo, Rancho Santa Margarita, San Clemente, San Juan Capistrano, and Trabuco.

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.

Brough: MOMMIE! Those Toll Road Meanies Are Coming After Me!!! (Mommie: Billy, Why did you use the toll roads again?)

When your life is spiraling out of control and you are grasping at straws to justify the indefensible, you sometimes pick the wrong straw man. It is awfully damn hard for Toll Road Billy to blame the Toll Road people for all his maladies when he is a repeat customer:

Wait a minute – was Toll Road Billy using the toll road AFTER he ran his bill to decimate the Toll Road Agency???

That’s right – William “Bill” Brough’s signature legislation was introduced on Feb 11, 2019, based on a pack of debunked lies (4 audits later) about the finances of the Toll Road Agency. (aka the OCTCA) I still wonder if Harvey Englander paid off Bill Brough somehow to get him to run that bill. (I have no proof to suggest this is true, just a gut hunch based on knowing that Englander made tens of thousands of dollars via intermediaries we will never be able to trace through public records for example)

AB1273 was introduced on 2-11-2019. Note the same day Brough used a toll road. #HYPOCRITE

Having just witnessed almost first-hand an election in San Clemente, I understand that reason and morality have departed from many in that community regarding the toll road. This is why I am putting everything on the table for theories.

The problem for San Clemente is that they elected a complete wretched disaster of a human being Gene James to City Council and they hitched their hopes on another wretched disaster of a human being William “Bill” Brough.

I guarantee you that San Clemente is so fully invested in their psychotic rage against the toll road and their sudden alliance with Brough that they will ignore the obvious questions and evidence presented here from his campaign account. While Brough was carrying Harvey Englander’s water in Sacramento – he was double-dealing behind their back using the very toll road they are trying to destroy.

How about the following list from 2018 – and to think, some people did not understand why Pro-Toll-Road people were caught off guard by Brough’s sudden opposition to the OCTCA. (Your intrepid blogger wonders how many of these trips were made while Mr. Brough was intoxicated, as we’ve gotten many stories of him allegedly driving drunk in addition to everything else we can actually prove he did with evidence)

54 notations in 2018, in addition to 12 notations in 2019 for Toll Road Fees paid for by his donors. I wonder if Harvey Englander and the crew in San Clemente would be happy knowing their money was funding the OCTCA?

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.
