“It’s part of the deal when you get elected” – Tim Donnelly.

Cha-Ching!

Tim Donnelly – you just got elected to the California State Assembly! You just won a NEW CAR!

Is Tim Donnelly a fiscal conservative? Not when it comes to his own finances. Be it borrowing money from people and not paying them back, losing land in a foreclosure, running a business in to the ground, running a scam ballot initiative or simply sticking his had out for all the perks of office – that’s Tim Donnelly.

$120K in per-diem and a $32K taxpayer funded vehicle?

For most grifters, being in office is the best job they ever had in their life – if they win election. Tim Donnelly is no different. If you have any tips about Tim Donnelly, you can email me at [email protected] You can remain anonymous.

As a convicted felon, Donnelly couldn’t own a gun, so he bought one illegally, tried to take it on a plane, and then lied about it.

In February 2012, Donnelly was arrested at the Ontario Airport for attempting to carry a loaded .45-caliber Colt Mark IV pistol on to an airplane. Not only was this illegal, but he didn’t even have a permit to carry a concealed weapon. In fact, the gun was not even his own. Donnelly plead guilty to two misdemeanor charges and then used his political position to get a sweetheart deal of three years of probation and a ban on using, possessing, or owning any firearms.

Donnelly then violated the terms of his probation. Once again, his political connections prevented him from going to prison.

In 2016, Donnelly’s wife called 911 to report Donnelly had abandoned his family and stolen from her, and she disclosed a secret behind his often-denied felony.

On June 19, 2016, Donnelly’s wife Rowena called the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department from the Donnelly home in Twin Peaks. She reported that Donnelly had abandoned his family and stolen her guns. She informed police that he was a convicted felon who was barred from owning firearms:

Throughout his life, Donnelly has shown a reckless disregard for the law. Whether it was violently breaking into people’s homes as a young man or mixing guns and alcohol as an adult, Donnelly has shown that he is a danger to his family, to society, and even to himself. Do we really want a repeat criminal who steals from his own family representing us in Congress?

Tim Donnelly was named Right on Daily’s Grifter of the Decade 2010-2019 for stuff like this. To be continued…

Endnote: CA-08 = California’s 8th Congressional District, this is the seat of retiring Republican Paul Cook.

Tim Donnelly is a political fraud

DONNELLY CLAIMS HE’S THE “TRUMP CANDIDATE.”
REALITY: Donnelly stood with Nancy Pelosi in opposition to Trump’s signature tax reform plan.

DONNELLY CLAIMS  TO BE THE “REAL” REPUBLICAN IN THE RACE.
REALITY: Donnelly, as an Assemblyman, voted with San Francisco liberals to pass legislation lightening sentences for drug dealers, including those working for Mexican cartels.

DONNELLY CLAIMS TO BE THE “REAL” GUN ADVOCATE IN THE RACE.
REALITY: Donnelly cannot legally own a gun due to his criminal past, which includes multiple convictions spanning several decades.

DONNELLY ACCUSED A SITTING PRESIDENT OF SUPPORTING TERRORISTS.
REALITY: Donnelly, as an Assemblyman, authored a bill preventing California from handing over to the US military suspected terrorists, thus creating the first ‘sanctuary’ state for terrorists in the country. Specifically, the bill prohibited “an agency in the State of California [or] a political subdivision of this state… from knowingly aiding an agency of the Armed Forces of the United States in any investigation, prosecution, or detention of a person within California pursuant the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (NDAA).

If that sounds a lot like California’s “Sanctuary State” laws, you’re right. Donnelly’s bill was the model.

DONNELLY CLAIMS TO BE A “PATRIOT NOT POLITICIAN.
REALITY: Donnelly needs money, and being in politics pays well — hence he keeps running for office. In his own words to the senior citizen he scammed for tens of thousands of dollars, “If I do get back in office or get more steady work, I’ll get a loan, and pay you off in full immediately.

THAT’S WHY HE’S SOUGHT FIVE POLITICAL OFFICES IN SIX YEARS: 

  1. California Governor in 2014, for which, Jack Pitney, professor of politics at Claremont McKenna College, wrote, “[Donnelly] has about as much chance of becoming governor as (former Gov.) Arnold Schwarzenegger has of becoming pope.” Why did he run? Money. He needs it, and he’s learned to skim money from his campaigns.
  2. State Senator in 2015, less than a year after his run for governor.
  3. Congress in 2016, where he failed to make it out of the primary.
  4. Congress in 2018, where he is finally being exposed as a criminal and fraud.
  5. And again Congress in 2020.

Sounds like a politician.

DONNELLY CLAIMS TO BE A “FISCAL CONSERVATIVE.”
REALITY: Donnelly owes tens of thousands of dollars personally and even scammed the SB 277 (anti-vaccination) campaign.

Donnelly took $30K in per-diem each of the four years he was in the assembly +  $32,000 taxpayer funded vehicle. When asked about it, he said, “It’s part of the deal when you get elected…”

Tim Donnelly is the biggest political fraud in California.

Aaron you make me sick, you are nothing but a piece of garbage. How dare you write lies about Tim Donnelly! If these false claims were true you would provide proof. Send what you have to me at [email protected] Otherwise shut up!

Blogger’s Note: Apparently, the below was not clear to the comment poster. I’d suggest that she seek therapy, but Tim Donnelly doesn’t either…

Ironic that Tim Donnelly rails against illegal immigrants when he himself is a felon and then some. In fact, four years ago, he stole from his own wife.

Tim Donnelly is above all else, a criminal. In college, Donnelly’s time as a student at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor ended when he was convicted of larceny following a botched burglary. After publicly denying his felony conviction, Donnelly was caught in his lie and admitted to “breaking into somebody else’s room and stealing a stereo from them” while drunk.

Donnelly’s alcohol problems continue.

Following this conviction, Donnelly left Michigan and moved to California, but his problems with alcohol might have followed him. In 2003, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department recorded a “driving under the influence” arrest for Donnelly’s Twin Peaks residence [full address redacted, see below for full report and other details]:

Donnelly claimed publicly that he “quit drinking” following his larceny conviction. That too is a lie. On social media, Donnelly has made many references to his problematic alcohol consumption such as this one in 2017:

As a convicted felon, Donnelly couldn’t own a gun, so he bought one illegally, tried to take it on a plane, and then lied about it.

In February 2012, Donnelly was arrested at the Ontario Airport for attempting to carry a loaded .45-caliber Colt Mark IV pistol on to an airplane.

We’ve detailed Tim Donnelly’s financial issues on Right on Daily for years. He lost a piece of property in a foreclosure. There is the story about the Roofing Supply Business that went Bankrupt (according to Donnelly’s former partner it was because Tim Donnelly was dishonest)

This mailer portrays Tim Donnelly as a hypocrite.

While claiming to be a Tea Party Conservative, Tim Donnelly took a $32,000 taxpayer funded car. (Note, my two 2017 vehicles cost way less than $32,000 each)

In 2012, when Tim Donnelly was running for re-election, not much was known about Tim Donnelly’s Felony Arrest, Police Record, borrowing money from constituents, sexual forays, suicide attempts or drinking exploits. The people blasting him had to stick to the surface issues of his behavior as a legislator.

Note – in 2012, I was outraged that Charles Munger, Luis Buhler and crew were pouring money in to Bill Jahn who was challenging Donnelly in the Primary. I have not changed my position that a primary challenge from the left to a sitting conservative is wrong. That said, had Tim Donnelly’s maladies been fully vetted in 2012, he’d have been defeated or damaged so bad he’d have never been able to mount another campaign.

This is the situation with William “Bill” Brough in 2020. The Primary Challenge against Brough is a moral challenge, not an ideological one. Along this line of reason, take a step back from Tim Donnelly’s image as a Conservative and evaluate his actions, there is no way you can either trust him or take him seriously. The $32,000 taxpayer funded vehicle is just one of many areas where Donnelly falls short of who he says he is.

More than$32,000 went to buy a 2011 Ford Edge for GOP freshman Tim Donnelly

BREAKING NEWS: Jay Obernolte Receives Unanimous Endorsement from California Republican Congressional Delegation

Obernolte Receives Endorsement from California’s 6 Republican
Congressional Members in Bid for California’s 8th District

HESPERIA, CA – Today, State Assemblyman Jay Obernolte announced he has received the unanimous endorsement of California’s Republican congressional delegation in his bid for the 8th congressional district. After Congressman Paul Cook’s decision to retire, Obernolte, a State Assemblyman and business owner, entered the race to represent the 8th District and quickly consolidated support from all major Republican leaders.

“We need representatives in Washington with integrity and conviction who will defend our values and put the American people first. Jay Obernolte is a strong conservative who will fight for what’s right, and that’s why I’m proud to endorse him for Congress,” stated Congressman Devin Nunes.

Recently, Obernolte announced the endorsement of House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy who is now joined by the state’s full Republican delegation in backing Obernolte’s campaign:

  • Rep. Paul Cook, incumbent

  • House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy

  • Rep. Devin Nunes

  • Rep. Ken Calvert

  • Rep. Doug LaMalfa

  • Rep. Tom McClintock

Along with the D.C. Representatives, Obernolte has overwhelming local support, including the California Republican Party, the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association, the mayors of all 13 cities in the congressional district, and over 50 local elected officials.

“I am very honored to have the support of Congressman Nunes and the Republican California Delegation. These Congressmen have proudly and diligently represented California in Washington and I hope to join their ranks so we can protect taxpayers and safeguard the liberties of our constituents,” said Assemblyman Jay Obernolte.
