Rodney Stanhope Update – Civil Harassment Case #5 and More ruined campaigns???

Dec 282014

Several People have come forward, and some even on the record. I am choosing to keep all females that are willing to go on the record still anonymous due to Rodney’s pattern.

Rodney Stanhope has demonstrated by his actions that he is a bully who scares people with threats and intimidation. Up until recently, I thought Rodney was a loud-mouthed sissy in addition to a Sociopath. Now, I have been told of a few instances of physical abuse, including incidences that people believe Stanhope caused a female campaign worker a concussion.

It makes sense, doesn’t it? He brags about “not being born with a guilt gene”.

One candidate told me flat out that Stanhope had the checks written to his wife’s business in order to avoid child support garnishments.

Another candidate, Chris Mitchum, went on the record with the following:

THANK you for your email! Rodney was hired by my consultant from a recommendation from the McClintock camp. He was a total disaster. NEVER, that I know of, walked a precinct nor brought in any Vols. (deleted) was “hired” by him. When I got his final bill, I didn’t want to pay him but my consultant said to pay so there wouldn’t be negative noise. I paid. He was fired. (The bill covered her fees, by the way)

My Fiancée, who is very intuitive, disliked him at once and said, “Get rid of him. Don’t let him come to functions.”

Well, he’s gone without, I might add, recommendation!

Mitchum fired Stanhope after the primary and after he is alleged to have physically assaulted another campaign worker. This worker was hired by Rodney without Mitchum’s knowledge and like so many before, Stanhope attempted to not pay her… but Mitchum made good on it himself. All that said, I have found out that the stiffed worker may not have ended up getting paid even after Mitchum attempted to make it good!

In my research, I have discovered that Stanhope has been taken to court by several freaked out women.

1. In 2005-6 an ex-girlfriend that Stanhope stole money from and smeared as a stripper took him to court. It references 2am text messages, meth use and excessive drinking. (I remember him calling her a stripper and the court documents refer to $4k that he took from her and of course never repaid)

2,3. In 2009, two more complaints from a couple of scared little girls whom stanhope referred to as hoochies, Stanhope also is alleged to have left peanut shells on their doorstep (they have severe peanut allergies) and the documents detail Meth Use, alcohol abuse and Stanhope locking his then-girlfriend’s nieces in the dark garage.

Stanhope left this girlfriend, pregnant and married his current wife before she gave birth and ended up on welfare. (according to accounts from sources and court documents and simply piecing together the timeline)

4. El Dorado County, while trying to glory-seek under the guise of a search for a missing girl… Rodney went berzerk because someone got in his way. This is how a sociopath operates, they get violent when they believe someone is denying them what is theirs. Stanhope repeated his psychotic pattern on the Sand Fire and was dismissed as a volunteer by the local Red Cross. (again, several sources reported this)

5. While “working” on the Tim Donnelly campaign. (BTW – Sarah Stanhope appears on his reports as a payee, once again keeping everything out of Rodney’s name) Monterey County’s website indicated another court appearance for Stanhope. I am going to get a copy of the court documents from Monterey County myself. I will lay odds they are replete with threats of physical violence and f-bombs. I’d also bet that there is at least one 2am timestamp on a text message. Think Patterns people.

During the same time in early 2014 that Stanhope was racking up case #5, he was back east destroying the campaign of Matt Jenkins for Congress in Alabama. The story from there was about Rodney sleeping with at least two college republicans in the area, binge drinking and basically making a fool of himself before Jenkins sacked him.

The SPAN network of Tim Core and Dave Miller fame had picked up Jenkins as a candidate and had sent Stanhope out there to help. Stanhope was also fired by SPAN after posting a video rant attacking “Right-Wing Christians” over the issues they had with Jenkins’ interesting stance on Same-Sex Marriage. Stanhope pulled the video, but I and many others saw it. Stanhope has an interesting history on the Gay Rights issue that we may go in more depth on in a later post.

If you think about it, Jenkins could have won that seat in Alabama and Mitchum came within inches of beating Lois Capps. In fact, the DCCC had to attack Mitchum in this allegedly safe Dem seat. Mitchum with a fraction of Abel Maldonado’s resources outperformed him severely.

Matt Jenkins for Congress.
Mitchum for Congress.
Bryson for Assembly.
Clair(e) McNeal
Two non-Republican local candidates

All lost and with the exception of Mitchum, badly. This is just the Stanhope candidate train-wreck circa 2014.

Rodney Stanhope is a disaster and 227 people voted for this guy in 2013. People are lining up to support him again.

P.S. Stanhope thinks I put my own “Draft Aaron F Park” Facebook page to run against HIM for CRP Vice Chair. These are the sorts of things he does to justify his behavior, I guess.


Dear Readers – Allow me to Kill a Rumor…

I am not running for CRP office.

I have endorsed Harmeet Dhillon for CRP Vice Chair.

I will not support Dennis Revell at this time for CRP Vice Chair North. I, however, am not running as I prefer to sell insurance rather than clean the deck on the titanic and the powers that be want an another ineffective yes man in that position. Unless Mr. Revell can convince me otherwise, that is my opinion of him. Secondly, Revell is a social liberal.

I have been told that Nevada County GOP Chair Deborah Wilder is running for CRP Secretary – I believe that she opposes the current CRP Platform and will be working to gut it at the upcoming platform meeting. Maybe I can talk to her as well and have her set me straight if indeed she is a social conservative and not the bay area liberal I remember. I have heard that Adam Abrahms may run against Wilder. I have significant issues with Mr. Abrahm’s character and would have an extremely difficult time choosing between the two.

Anyone that does not support Jim Brulte for re-election to CRP Chair is a moron, a fool and an idiot and needs to check themselves in for therapy.

I have heard that Neel Kashkari wants to run for CRP Treasurer. If true, that would be a boost for the GOP despite how liberal he is.

Rodney Stanhope Update 12-17-2014… “Relationship” Update + Christmas Shed Update

Dec 172014

I don’t know why I keep writing about Rodney Stanhope. Maybe it is that I need to blow something up, or maybe it is that there are no elections, I’m bored and people keep messaging / emailing / texting / calling me.

Rodney can’t help himself – he has told people he was born without a “guilt gene”. It seems to make sense as the man has no shame and continues to con people even as the universe of burnt people grows.

It is my opinion that Mr. Stanhope fits the classic profile of a sociopath, no guilt, no remorse, no shame.

Witness his recent facebook postings about how he is getting a divorce and how he is the victim – even though today he posted that he is in a “New Relationship” while his enablers were clicking like. His current wife was cheated on several times that I am aware of. No big deal – Rodney is the victim here.

The inserted picture here is blatant evidence that while Rodney is still married and is posting about being in a new relationship, he is propositioning a third woman in this text message exchange.

As previously chronicled, Mr. Stanhope had an affair twice with another campaign staffer and in between retained the services of a Prostitute in 2014. I am sure there are others, they may come forward as the others have.

Every year since 2002, Rodney Stanhope has slept in a tough shed for 12-14 days to collect “toys for the troop’s kids”. As documented here, one year it was used as alternative sentencing for his assault conviction (that he just completed the probation for in 2013) Originally, Stanhope was part of the CRVA who disassociated themselves from him after one season due to Mr. Stanhope’s need to have the spotlight all to himself.

What I learned today in multiple on-line chats is that Mr. Stanhope in the opinion of several women that know him has stolen several toys from the effort every year in addition to “significant amounts of cash”.

Quote 1: “And yes – I saw him loading stolen toys into his car in 2010. He said (current wife) wanted things for herself and for —- (her son). I didn’t actually see him take the stuff from the toy shed – he had a loaded box in the shed he slept in the night we were there to move him out. But they were new toys.

Every one of Rodney’s exes always comment about how he is always broke… one of the chats yielded this bombshell: He wants to go sit in that tuff shed every winter to help other kids and he ignores his own kids. WTH? What kinda crap is that??!?? He steals from the shed every year. He walks away with cash and lots of it – and later added – [child]…always got nice gifts after the shed thing is done. He had spending money after that too. [deleted] has talked about the same thing too. He has cash after that thing is done.

In hand-written notes I have confirmation from other women of the exact same pattern.

Court documents show allegations that Rodney keeps alcohol in and may have even used drugs while in the shed. I have seen his bottles in the shed first-hand. I have seen him steal money from people myself in other venues – granted all instances I saw personally are over 9 years old, but why would that change now?

In another posting on Facebook – Rodney posted pictures of himself with a daughter he says he was meeting for the first time. From my chats with several women, I have been able to deduce that the child is roughly 14, is likely child #4 that Rodney fathered in between marriage #2 and #3. Court Records show court-ordered paternity tests in 2001 and 2004. The 2001 test would be consistent with a 14-year-old kid today.

The story is that the mother of that child was on welfare and of course the state wanted to go after the father in an attempt to recover some of the money. Rodney first attempted to deny paternity and the test came up that he was the father. in 2013, when running for CRP Vice-Chair the first time, Rodney lied about the 2001 paternity test while challenging the voracity of this blog, his friends in the Tea Party Caucus believed him without ever following up.

The situation with this “newly found” daughter could explain why Mr. Stanhope does not have a checking account, works cash jobs only, lives on Wal-Mart and Cash Cards and has nothing in his own name. Literally, dozens of people have told me about this as it appears odd to everyone.

Mr. Stanhope is currently under a court order in El Dorado County, but it is unclear if that order is for this child.

If you have not read enough yet – add this story in. In 2011 a generator disappeared from the Shed. Allow my sources to kick in:

Also in 2011 the Guard group he usually worked with was refusing to be there because they said he stole a generator from them and money. I heard that myself because [details deleted to protect identity of source]. Don’t know what eventually happened, because when I asked him about it later he said they were wrong and it got resolved.

Then in a separate chat – this bombshell: One year his generator was “stolen”… and the news showed up to interview him… Except it was in [deleted] garage! … He was tearing up in that interview and everything! He won the daytime Emmy that day

If you donate to the Rodney Shed Effort – based on the above, I can say that it will likely go in to Rodney’s pocket and in to his habit.

One of my sources told me that Rodney has a suspended license for a Failure to Appear: I heard it on the scanner the other night, when he called EDSO on [deleted], because she locked him out LMAO… They ran him and he is on a suspended license and a FTA not at warrant status YET…

Yes, this guy got 227 votes for CRP Vice Chair in 2013. A con artist.

Dec 102014

Two years ago when I unloaded on Rodney Stanhope – I was warned by two of his ex-wives (he is currently on the way to his 4th Divorce) that he would be back despite getting decimated 881-227 by CRP Vice Chair Harmeet Dhillon.

That’s right, 227 Tea Partiers voted for Rodney Stanhope – you know, to teach the establishment a lesson. Stanhope had no support from any other group within the California GOP. As a result, they helped convince the delusional Stanhope that he could take a second run at it.

The Tea Partiers voted for a man who at the time, had six tax liens, a recent criminal conviction, wage garnishments for child support, recent harassment complaints and a string of campaigns he had destroyed.

Now, we are two years further along in Mr. Stanhope’s addiction. Like any good addict, Stanhope has surrounded himself with people that reassure him that he is right and everyone else is wrong. Similar to someone living in the haze of intoxication, the facts don’t matter, including posting actual court documents, pictures of him with his face further sunken in or more stuff from the local police blotter.

Yet, many in the Tea Party think he is a righteous dude. I have come to believe that the Tea Party in California are destructive, I can draw no other conclusion from seeing them actively sabotage Doug Ose in one area because he is too liberal, in other areas being used by liberals to run conservatives out of office and in various parts of the state supporting complete train wrecks for party office.

That said, I had decided to leave Rodney alone until a couple of women approached me. Again. Different women than the dozen or so I talked to in 2012-2103.

Rodney has had a pattern of conning his way in to campaigns, doing nothing while trying to make it look like he is, “hiring” people to work on said campaigns and then not paying them.

In the case of one of my sources, she did get paid (because she was aggressive about it) – but found out later that she had been double-dealt on a couple of times. This person worked on the Kevin Falconer effort in San Diego and saw first-hand Mr. Stanhope having an affair on his fourth wife with another campaign worker.

It continued when she was brought in to the Anna Bryson Campaign by Rodney as well as the Mitchum for Congress Campaign. The source indicated to me multiple instances of Rodney using meth and one suspicious circumstance where another campaign worker came up with injuries consistent with a physical assault. I have known Stanhope to be verbally abusive  causing several scared women to try and get a restraining order against him, and he does have a misdemeanor assault conviction as well.

I have spoken to several people around both campaigns and this most recent source has corroborated everything they told me, and then some. It appears Rodney would walk about 20 houses in a precinct and go to a bar. I have had two candidates that hired Rodney tell me similar stories. In the Bryson effort, the source indicated that Rodney retained the services of a hooker for an extended period of partying in a hotel room while Bryson was going down in flames.

Rodney was retained by Clair(e) McNeal (who I lampooned a couple of times as I had friends in the camp of another failed candidate). It was in the McNeal campaign that Rodney’s affair from San Diego became known as it re-started post Bryson/Hooker.

Rodney’s year of Political failure came to an end with two Non-Republicans he was helping in local El Dorado County races who both lost badly.

The source came to me because she wanted to make sure that no other woman was conned by Mr. Stanhope.

It is amazing, because the congressional candidate indicated that the McClintock camp referred Rodney to them. Bryson had known Rodney from years back, McNeal as well. Mr. Stanhope is effective at talking a good game and getting hired.

It is also my opinion that he works for cash to avoid wage garnishments. This opinion is reinforced by my conversations with the mothers of several of his children.

Several years ago, Rodney left a woman named Debbie J. in Galt pregnant. He married his current wife while she was pregnant. It is my understanding that Debbie J. is still on welfare. She was when I spoke to her in early 2013. Now, his 4th marriage is on the rocks. I have seen two instances of the police being called to their house in the last two years and have heard about several more that I have no proof of.

I was contacted by the source of the above and three other sources that wife #4 has filed for divorce citing marital infidelity amongst other things. I am unsure of how many instances of it she is listing as I know of at least 6. I am not surprised by any of this as marriage #4 started as a result of cheating on the mother of child #8 Debbie J. (I have pieced together that Rodney appears to have 8 Children by 7 Women. Only he knows for real as many of his kids he has seen rarely if at all)

Which leads me to Discovery Petitions. They are running the plastic bag ban referendum signature drive. They are needing to hire precinct walkers as the unionized grocery stores have whored themselves out knowing they will get to pocket the $.10 bag tax. Thus, the proponents need to go door-to-door.

I was told by others that I know that Rodney was able to catch on with Discovery Petitions, because like so many before, they did not do any sort of background investigation.

I also hope that for a change – instead of being stubborn morons, that the tea party idiots that are enabling this disaster would at least find another candidate to run against Harmeet Dhillon. It is getting old seeing the Tea Party emulate the behavior of Obama, continuing to double down on failure so as to not have to admit a mistake.

Why does Rodney keep finding enablers? Why did Discovery Petitions hire him? Why does Rodney still have support for his Vice-Chair Run?

Maybe the California GOP deserves him.

Why am I wasting my time writing this piece, knowing full well that Rodney Stanhope will never stop conning people until the day his addictions overtake his life?

Try talking to all the women I’ve talked to. Either you shut them out – or you try to use your platform to help. I sincerely hope that the word will really get out and the people in the political establishment from the Tea Party to major consulting firms will stop enabling this to continue.

#AD06 Update – Dave Titus is the Choice of Beth Gaines to Succeed Her

 AD-06 Race, Beth Gaines  Comments Off on #AD06 Update – Dave Titus is the Choice of Beth Gaines to Succeed Her
Dec 042014

You read it here first.

Several sources from the inside of politics are buzzing that Dave Titus is starting to make the rounds.

This makes sense on several fronts:

It is consistent with the betrayal of John Allard by Steve Davey/Ted Gaines in favor of Beth Gaines some years ago when Mrs. Gaines won the seat based 100% on her name ID, using the pull of her husband to pin down donors and would-be endorsers. With the seat open – but Ted still being an incumbent, and favoring Titus, the dynamic would be similar.

1. Dave Titus is Beth Gaines’ Chief of Staff. Again, is a similar dynamic to a husband / wife legislator scenario.

2. Steve Davey has demonstrated an almost clinical level of paranoia since being Ted Gaines Chief of Staff, suggesting that the list of candidates that would be acceptable and/or trusted would be very small.

3. Dave Titus also ran for assembly years ago, losing to Chuck Quackenbush.

The scenario is complete and makes perfect sense.

I will say this, I do not have the same contempt for Dave Titus that I do for Beth Gaines. I will take a wait and see attitude about Mr. Titus, his campaign, etc…

… consider this the latest installment of arranging the deck chairs on the CAGOP Titanic.
