I had counseled a few people privately that Megan was doing well and would return in full. Be careful when repeating and spreading rumors; unless you talk to the person yourself, there is always a chance third-party information is wrong.


If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you may have seen that yesterday marked my return to the Assembly Floor after recovering from recent health issues. Throughout my recovery, my staff and I have tirelessly continued our work on the issues affecting the constituents of the 1st Assembly District and all of California. Our commitment to serving you has remained steadfast, and getting back to the Assembly Floor to resume this important work with my colleagues was a significant moment for me.

I am deeply grateful for the warm welcome from my colleagues and for all the prayers and well wishes from each of you during my recovery. Rest assured, the work has never ceased, and we continue to represent and advocate for you effectively.

As always, if you need assistance from my office, please feel free to respond to this email. It is an honor to serve you in the Assembly.

Assemblywoman Megan Dahle

This is something your intrepid blogger has not seen in a long time. A candidate sent me their stuff in an attempt to get some love from this blog.

Why the hell not, Robert Howell is a pain in the backside of the establishment in Santa Clara County. Robert, here is your endorsement, give ’em hell in the fall election.

Robert Howell sent a letter all the way up here in far away Nevada! It is nice to see that the USPS can still deliver here to my artillery nest at 5,146′.

That is quite a resume for a grassroots candidate!

The Republican’s Republican from San Jose’ California.

Sick ’em Robert.

It has finally happened. More Proxies than Delegate Bodies.

This is pretty much the story.

I have to salute Luis Buhler, he is a brilliant man. There is a reason why he is consistently a Presidential Delegate despite his long history of fighting conservatives.

People on the opposition side should take a master class from Buhler about how to manipulate organizations through legal, Robert’s Rules ways.

Buhler took Tim O’Reilly’s By-Law proposals, gutted them, amended them and got something passed that was less obvious, but equally as effective. My estimation based on what I saw is that there will be about 200 less delegates in the pool. You need 30% to get three and 45% to get five. My understanding is below 30 is candidate only.

The other amendment eliminating delegate status for write in’s was tabled.

This was an absoulte master class by Mr. Buhler.

What is in italics is false. I knew it was false when I wrote it. I wanted to see if Steve Frank or crew would come and correct the record… as previously I had to post the entire letter between Tim O’Reilly and Keith Cascio to force the truth in to the open.

Rick Marshall has always been an honest operator, but he is an indepdenent guy and not part of Team Steve Frank everytime on every thing. Thank You Rick for the comment below. It was almost 24 hours between the time I posted this and Rick’s comment and Rick was the only person from the opposition to speak up against the false information.

Do better folks.

Sloan needs help. He is right and everyone else is wrong don’t you know…

Dumpster Dan on the Dope Rhyme

If you received a copy of the Dan Sloan dossier in February when it was circulating, you were treated to his now ex-wife talking about his obsessive need to be right. She also talked about the myriad of abusive methods he employed. Fast forward to 2024, and it looks like Sloan has learned nothing.

Just this AM on the heels of losing a 16-2 Vote (the second time, mind you, the first was 15-5) he is still sending out emails as if he is still the Chair of the Shasta GOP.

The Shasta GOP met in the basement of the Methodist Church, a meeting Sloan claims is not valid. Let’s introduce Sloan (once again) to Robert’s Rules of Order…

50%+1 of a body can call a meeting any time, anywhere. Shasta GOP’s by-laws are silent on special meetings, thus Robert’s Rules applies. This is the second such time that the rank and file membership of the Shasta GOP have properly followed Robert’s Rules regarding expelling Sloan. But, don’t worry Sloan will go to his grave protesting how right he is and refusing to accept reality. He will continually come up with new reasons why he is right and everyone else is wrong.

My advice to the Shasta GOP is to take a 2/3 vote and expel him from the committee completely so you can move on with your business and cut him out of the communication loop. The local elections office will recognize the new officers as will the State GOP, anything else Sloan says is irrelevant.

Once again, a tip of the cap for the way Garrett Hall took his lumps and moved on. What a contrast.
