On Saturday Alone – Roger Niello Cost Me $165.45

HOW? I went to a local car lot to get some cheap transportation.

$150 a month payment is really cool and it was for a nice 2000 Subaru Outback. Good little car – versitile (I can fit 250 he raised your taxes signs in the back of it).

It cost $6995 – so the sales tax increase of Niellos cost me 1% of the purchase price more or $69.95.

Roger Niello also jacked up the car tax – costing me an extra $95.50 I would not have paid prior to his vote.

Millionaire State Legislator Roger Niello Desperation Update: Envokes Barbara Alby in his Mail?

Ladies and gentlemen – Roger Niello is losing. Barbara Alby is taking votes away from him.

This is why Alby’s crew are broadsiding Ted Gaines and why Alby is only attacking Ted Gaines in public.

And Now for Roger Niello’s Mail Peices.

The first one is the usual Roger Niello is the honest Tax-Raiser, Ted Gaines is a Fraud Peice – with a twist… Barbara Alby is a part of it.

Here’s the front – it features labor union endorsements and moderate Republican group endorsements. (He left off Kevin Johnson, Jimmy Yee and Don Notoli though – maybe those will be on a mailer to Democrats)

Here’s the Back – Note that while Niello goes to his mainstay attacks against Ted Gaines, he brings Barbara Alby in saying she is as good as he is on the issues he’s citing but calling her a “Former Assemblywoman”. I think Niello knows Barbara Alby is killing him in Sacramento County.

It’s too late, that train has left the station.

Here’s where the deception comes in – Millionaire State Legislator Roger Niello cites some A ratings from the Howard Jarvis Taxpayer’s Association and re-cites the fraudulent California Republican Taxpayer’s Association.

And here is Niello Mailer number two.

The hyperbolic claim about Gaines opening the door to $41Billion more in taxes is made but not backed up by the Moderates in the CRTA.

The closer is Bruce Kranz – the former supervisor from Placer County.

Kranz accuses Ted Gaines of blind ambition as if he is doing something wrong by running for State Senate. And – he brings Barbara Alby in to the equation suggesting that if you can’t vote for Roger Niello to vote for Barbara Alby to save the whopping sum of a Million Dollars.

Kranz voted for fee increases as a Placer County Supervisor far larger than $1million.

I find it curious that someone who raised our taxes by $12 Billion all the sudden cares about a special election costing $1million? And the messenger is someone who raised taxes at the county level himself.

The last time I heard whining about the cost of a special election in these parts was from Gray Davis.

CA SD-01 Update: Roger Niello and the Republican Party: Endorse Liberals and Fight with Central Committees

Roger Niello recently took an endorsement from uber-liberal Kevin Johnson. Barbara Alby has said nothing about this in public.

Niello has a laundry list of liberal Democrats supporting him – yet in candidate forums Alby never discusses this, Why? Only a Ted Gaines mailer discussed Jimmy Yee and Don Notoli.

Roger Niello endorsed Doug Ose over Barbara Alby in 1998 because in Alby’s words “I am pro-life”. We heard Alby mention this once in a public forum but little else as she has been focused on attacking the Pro-Life Ted Gaines.

Roger Niello has endorsed numerous liberal Republicans for local office in Sacramento County. Niello has endorsed very few conservatives pre-primary.

In fact, the current AD-05 nominee got Niello’s endorsement grudgingly only after the game of dial-a-squish failed. Susan Peters, Steve Miklos, John McGuniess and others who are on Niello’s endorsement list were all candidates Niello tried to recruit to run against Andy Pugno.

Roger Niello endorsed Doug Ose again over Tom McClintock.

On California Republican Party metters – Niello prefers to stay out of them and avoid the contraversy.

Now Niello is running for SD-01 claiming the mantle as the true conservative.

When the Placer County Republican Central Committee endorsed the Pro-Life Tom McClintock over the Pro-Choise Liberal Millionaire Doug Ose, Roger Niello retaliated.

He withdrew the money he was contributing for bounty payments to the Placer County Republican Central Committee for voter registration and never resumed paying it again.

In addition, Niello’s representative came to the Central Committee meetings with orders to vote against the conservative majority on the Placer County Republican Central Committee.

This was not Niello’s first participation in action against conservatives at the local party level. In Sacramento, support the platform was started as a result of a Dan Lungren / Roger Niello led effort to install moderates in positions of power and control over the Sacramento County GOP Committee.

The results of that were two years of ineffectiveness and major losses of voter registrations.

Roger will counter by talking about the donations he has made to various Republican candidates statewide. That’s awesome – and thank you for that, but it never translated to promoting conservatism at the local level.

Ask many on the Placer and Sacramento County Republican Central Committees about it. The issue is Roger Niello attempting to campaign as the real conservative when his history – recent history 2006-2010 is one of being at odds with local conservative leaders.


CA SD-01 Update: Barbara Alby Has Issues: Her Supporters are making Scorched Earth

Ever since Barbara Alby got in to the CA SD-01 race, it seems Alby has been on a single-minded public rampage against Ted Gaines.

There have been some scant attacks on Niello – but his $10Billion Spending Increase vote, votes to give away the store to the public employee unions and his vote for the largest tax increase in state history have gotten little or no attention from Alby. (Alby’s site has some – but Alby rarely addresses Niello in public)

And I thought Barbara Alby was the “True Conservative in the CA SD-01 Race.

Truth is – I supported her for board of equalization when a lot of her current supporters were supporting George Runner.

Alby supporters are attacking the CRA, an orginization she’d been active in years ago but has been seen in sparingly in the last 10 years. Why – the CRA was going to endorse Ted Gaines and Karen England was spreading a malicious rumor that endorsement was bought.

Psychotic Alby supporter Ken Campbell perpretrated that rumor about the CRA emdorsement again.

No one is entitled to a CRA endorsement. Ted Gaines earned it with his 90+% CRA Scorecard –

Barbara Alby has very little money and has spent her time attacking Ted Gaines only – another of her supporters, supporting her only because those of us on the Placer County Republican Central Committee are supporting Ted Gaines wrote this:

Fellow Patriots, while the NorCal Tea Party Patriots leadership and other Northern California Tea Party “Patriots” group leaders (emphasis on Tea Party “Patriot” groups, other Tea Party groups are still out here uncorrupted and want to expose the truth on ALL sides of the isle) choose to go along with this corruption and not inform their groups of the “real Ted Gaines” due to political favors that were given to them for their 9-12 Event, the rest of us within the Tea Party Movement are still fighting the fight uncorrupted.

Scorched earth – Barbara Alby style. Everyone who supports your opponent is corrupt and only you are the true Conservative.

Of course while you turn a blind eye to the man who voted in the largest tax increase in California History. (At least her “tea party” supporter is equal opportunity as evidenced below – gotta love it)

Some people take this stuff so personally. Attribution for the above cartoon goes to Karen England ally and former Nor Cal Tea Party activist Jim Moore.

Alby could learn something from this guy – he attacked Keene and Niello for supporting the 2007 budget (which raised spending $10 billion but did not raise taxes)… but Alby has yet to do so.

Makes you wonder Barbara Alby is trying to accomplish by running, really.

And, speaking of Karen England – she’s supporting Roger Niello. This is certainly a bizarre election.

Kevin Johnson – the left-wing Mayor of Sacramento. He announced his endorsements today.

With every endorsement comes baggage. Kevin Johnson has a ton – a federal investigation in to his Charter School and his recent endorsement list is even worse baggage for anyone that is not a freaked-out liberal.

KJ endorsed Kamala Harris – you know, the SF Nutbag that refuses to prosecute Cop-Killers? He also endorsed SF Nutbag Gavin “any Twosome” Newsome.

KJ Endorsed Barbara Boxer – while left-wing papers are bailing out on her. KJ Endorsed Jerry Brown (to round out the SF freakshow) and John Chiang (the empty-suit who whores for unions every year at budget time)

Darrell Steinberg for Senate, Richard Pan (who can’t finish a sentence) over Pugno for Assembly and Roger Niello for…. WAIT!? Roger Niello?

Is this what effectiveness looks like? What does Roger Niello have in common with Darrell Steinberg!? If I was Roger Niello, I’d wink and say “You sure about that, Kevin… you know there is Ken Cooley on the ballot!?”

Otherwise – it looks like Roger Niello really IS a compromised Republican vs the conservative he is campaigning as. Ted Gaines will be sure to point this out to voters.

KJ’s endorsement sucks as bad as the Sacramento Bee’s does.

Now – Tim Herman? That’s a different story – Tim Herman had a recent fundraiser headlined by Kevin Johnson.

That’s right – KJ who went No on 23, like Herman and Yes on 25, like Herman. So they both support killing 1 million plus jobs and simple-majority tax increases at the state level.

Kevin Johnson is the biggest name yet that Tim Herman has gotten to endorse him – certifying his left-wing credentials. David Larson should be jealous – Herman snagged both the Sacramento Bee and Kevin Johnson.

The package is clear with Tim Herman – he is a liberal Democrat who forgot to register as such.

Think about it – his top supporters are all Democrats.
He supports Prop 25 – simple majority budgets / tax increases
He opposes Prop 8
He opposes Prop 23 – and supports an electric car ordinance in Sun City
He has talked about extending the time to pay city taxes, not cutting them…

The Kevin Johnson endorsement makes sense for Tim Herman.
