Did you know that Katie Hill’s CA-25 Scandal has gone national? Here is the Washington Post trying to help her out. She denied having an affair in that national “media publication”, just as Red State Blogger Jennifer Van Laar unloaded part 2 and 3 of her expose’ with TEXT MESSAGES proving the whole saga! Will ethics charges be next for the budding communist hero whose campaign got national media attention? (The attention was based 100% on her being a switch-hitter)

Deanna Lorraine Tesoriero from CA-12 running against Pelosi continues to make a fool of herself. On the heels of having 10 people (that’s it, 10) for a copycat event in San Francisco here she is on video explaining the failure of her campaign. This stuff writes itself. we’ve also posted video of her partying like a rock star in Florida, too.

I’ve spent a lot of time on Orange County politics lately, here are a few updates that have come across the transom:

Some people have been going through William “Bill” Brough withdrawals. Billy Boy has some problems. #1 the people that are sending official OCGOP mail for Gene James forgot to mention Bill Brough as a major supporter. (No mention of Bill Brough anywhere, period) #2 Your intrepid blogger has been told that Bill Brough has been cut off in Sacramento by legislative leadership. #3 Your intrepid blogger got recent information that the investigation in to Billy Boy’s philandering and Campaign Finances are white hot with several people being called. When calls are made people talk.

Your intrepid blogger also got some public records related to Bill Brough and I spent most of the afternoon laughing uncontrollably. #RENTFREE

Bill Brough’s world is about to shrink some more. Might I suggest the following for a campaign theme song: Brough for Assembly. If Brough is fortunate, 4% Kelly might sing backup on the song for him.

Speaking of 4% Kelly – her supporters on the OCGOP were left to push the worn-out 90’s era consultant strategy of “No Endorsement”. This is the feckless cowardly stance that the “Republican Party should not pick winners and losers”. This is code for we don’t like what is coming. In order to make sure there was chaos, Kelly Ernby put the wine bottle down and had about a dozen Anti-Vaxxers present at the meeting to bully some of the more cowardly members of the OCGOP.

Ernby has even greater problems – the people that suffice for GOP Leadership in California have endorsed Diane Dixon. Kelly Empty is reputed to have very little to work with financially, given that Anne Dunsmore and Duane Dichara are both on the payroll for significant sums, she will be broke soon.

Remember the OCGOP’s recent endorsement that was a limp-wristed slap to Bill Brough despite the incontrovertible evidence of his malfeasance? Given that weakness, I can imagine how Ernby and crew would be emboldened to attempt bully tactics.

OCGOP Leadership failures and cowardice seem to be the order of battle – except when it came to Gene James. OCGOP Chair Feckless Fred Whitaker is reputed to have helped push the endorsement of Gene James through the OCGOP. One of the few times Fred Whitaker has shown real resolve is in the face of 11 Tax Liens, 4 Civil Judgement, multiple abuse complaints, a foreclosure, wage garnishments, poor credit and video evidence of vigilante behavior  – Fred Whitaker stood by his man. Would Fred need to see what 15 tax liens before he reconsiders an endorsement? Another judgement or two? A homeless dude in the hospital? What about the OCGOP itself?

Apparently, the aforementioned Bully Gene James and Crew went 15 rounds with the Commie Pinko 20 Year Old Jackson Hinkle at the San Clemente Farmer’s Market. (I guess Ernby will provide the under-card in November when the OCGOP decides between cowardice and taking a stand in AD74)

Mickey McLane will get his 500 votes, but his account of circumstances is what it is. I have feelers out to obtain a copy of the police report. I am hoping it is as definitive as the issues of Gene James bullying and attacking the homeless people.

Bottoms Up Guys! This is Orange County Politics! (Look for another piece of mail to come from the OCGOP extolling the virtues of Gene James)

Got it? Screw whatever, Smoke Whatever – it’s all good with Kelly Ernby. (Unless you are a business, then she will sue you)

Given that Ernby is on Marriage #3, I could certainly understand the libertine attitude toward who and what you have sex with. However, the attitude towards using narcotics? It could be because her main practice as a government attorney is suing businesses versus prosecuting crime? (Research shows very few prosecutions despite misleading claims on her social media)

Did former OC DA Tony Rackauckas have a clue who he recruited for AD-74??? (Maybe T-Rak is in to suing people too…)

We deserve better in the GOP than empty candidates that make a living suing businesses in to oblivion who have unclear values and an unclear platform.

As of the writing of this blog, her campaign is running on empty. (But, her Consultants are getting fat retainers) I am seriously wondering why she is running for AD74.

It’s all ringing squishy empty.

(AD-74 = Assembly District 74, Currently infested by Cottie Petrie-Norris-NoMas)

There is a second interesting Sidebar, Vincent Fong has endorsed Kelly Ernby and Shannon Grove has endorsed Diane Dixon. Fong and Grove are both from the “Kevin McCarthy Machine” in Kern County. Right now, Grove is the Senate Permanent Minority leader and Vincent Fong missed being Permanent Minority Leader in the Assembly by a slim margin (possibly Bill Brough’s vote). There is a school of thought that Kevin McCarthy may get run out on a rail if the GOP does not re-take the house – this would be an obvious nexus for a Fong vs Grove proxy war as a congressional seat is about as far as a Republican can go in California.

That said, it appears Vincent Fong has not delivered a dime for Ernby. We shall see as Ernby looks like an #EMPTYERNBY spoiler at this time.

Kelly Ernby had a fundraiser last week. Note how lonely Tyler Diep is in the room. Count ’em folks – 12 people. Most of them look like Lawyers. It also looks like this event was shoved in to a broom closet or something too.

Now – let’s contrast this to Diane Dixon:

Diane (in the Red) is pictured with former Governor Pete Wilson Marie Waldron and Shannon Grove – there is an interesting aside. Dixon and very close to Laurie Davies who is running against the troubled Bill Brough in AD73. She has publicly endorsed Davies – yet here she is with Former Governor Pete Wilson, and the two GOP Minority Leaders who have yet to do anything related to the Brough situation. This proves that each race is a separate issue.

Secondly and more importantly – look at the room. I was told there were over 100 people that appeared during the course of the evening. I can see about 30 in this photo.

Regardless of my feelings towards Pete Wilson, his is an endorsement that plays well in Southern California. (It does not in my area) This is significant considering that Ernby has a few decent endorsements of her own that have amounted to next to no momentum or resources.

So I ask again, why is Kelly Ernby running for AD74? She is polling at 4%, unlike Dixon who has significant name ID.

Also, based on the flow of communication, it looks like Kelly has had some campaign staff turnover. This is yet another sign that things are not going well for Empty Ernby.

P.S. – leave a comment, let me know if you like #EMPTYERNBY or #4%KELLY better.

My thesis for AD74 is simple. A viable and strong candidate will retake this district. The democrat is a far-left wackjob and leaves a ton of room to get hit hard.

I am still not sure of the nexus for Kelly Ernby’s campaign, but it rings empty. Hence the name Kelly Empty. Why is she running? What does she bring to the table?

This is a good look for a fundraiser. A top California Republican and some solid names for a host committee.

There are some parts of California where Pete Wilson plays well. My understanding is that Orange County is one of them. Again, drawing a sharp contrast between Diane Dixon and the Empty Ernby campaign, it looks clear that Diane Dixon’s campaign is covering the bases you’d expect from a front-runner and viable challenger to a dem incumbent.

Ernby has not filed a 24-hour report in quite some time, suggesting that her “Fundraising Events” have been Potemkin Village Drills, and at that she had less than 1/3 the available cash at the end of the last campaign finance reporting period.

In a future installment, we are going to break down some polling that was released recently as we continue our expose of AD-74. The key question to start asking yourself – is Kelly Ernby just an empty spoiler? Kelly Empty.

Sep 232019

No one knows you. You’ve raised $74K of which $9400 came from your folks. You are Kelly Ernby for Assembly ladies and gentlemen.

A Sugar Pill polls at 4%, And So does Empty Ernby.

What I have gathered from her biography is that she is yet another attorney looking for political office. She has made a career out of suing people and businesses in the name of social justice.

Ernby has never held office – yet is being pushed by some of the good ol’boys in Orange County. Despite this, her #1 GOP opponent has out-raised her nearly 3-1.

At this point, my research indicates that Kelly Empty has next to no resume outside of working as a government lawyer. As I look at her campaign finance, I see a ton of lawyers on her donors list (Over 20, accounting for about $14,000 of the $65,000 not donated by her parents). That is not a good look either. Her next “major” fundraiser is all about more lawyers. What’s that joke about 300 lawyers…

Ernby has not made a 24 hour filing since June. This means her fundraising has been minimal for several months.

Her key endorsements are former officeholders. Many of them were making key decisions in the 2018 electoral disaster for the GOP in Orange County.

It all rings empty for the GOP. Kelly Empty.

We’re going to take a closer look at Kelly Empty because she appears to be a third wheel in an Assembly Race that should be competitive and winnable for the GOP. In a day when we need leadership and reassurance, we don’t need another vanilla lawyer who makes a living suing businesses. We need and deserve better than more “Brand X” candidates.
