The slow motion #trainwreck continues in the leper colony known as CRA. It appears that Alice Khosravy, the CRA’s Black Widow is slowly starting to weed out CRA Board Members.

Craig was described as a “Disgusting, Sweaty Pig” by Khosravy deputy Wendy Albright (she of the $10000 FPPC Fine). (I have the screenshots of the texts somewhere, but how could I forget this?)

When I first heard the news, I was hoping that maybe some time away from Politics would help Craig deal with the pious, pompous, self-righteous arrogant streak that has characterized him for years. Maybe a more balanced and mature Alexander would transform from a pariah to someone who used their talents for productive good.

Then I read his resignation email. While he had valid points, the highlights of his character flaws were evident.

Craig pointed out that the CRA needs to get younger and get more members. Alice and crew will never let the CRA grow, a larger organization will be more difficult to control. The two most recent CRA units are fraudulent shells in my opinion and are already beset with infighting.

Craig Alexander was indeed ideally suited for CRA. It appears that Craig has come out on the losing end of an internal pissing match and has decided to take his ball and go home. Such is life in the ineffective debating society known as CRA.

The CRA’s Pol-Pot Bellied Information Minister Tom Hudson – who was recently at the CRA’s OC BBQ (attended by roughly 30 people despite representing 7 remaining CRA units) – is finding himself increasingly isolated.

Hudson, as you may recall is the executive director of a shell organization that is effectively a PAC that endorses and does the usual pay-for-play crap that “Republican Taxpayer Groups” do. While Hudson is emptying the boxes of wine at home, his business partner Mike Spence got in to a major accident and appears to be in major trouble.

Craig Alexander was, until yesterday, Tom Hudson’s firewall and biggest ally in the CRA.

Hudson is privately disdained by most people on the CRA’s board that I know. Most of them lack the character to be honest and open about it until, of course the opportunity arises to participate in the next purge. The Game of Thrones has nothing on the CRA – because at least some of the characters portrayed in the Game of Thrones can function in normal life.

CRA UPDATE: Arranging the AD68 Deck Chairs? Wait – is the OC Endorsing Convention Being Hosted Along With the CRA Convention?

Oh no, not Harry Sidhu. He is a RINO, we can’t have him. (Why he is a RINO is beyond me, but who cares…)

Oh no, not Stephen Choi, the tax raising Council-Member from Irvine.

Oh no – not DUI Deborah Pauly.

No, no, no – the CRA can not endorse any of them was the decree from Boss Hog, via a series of phone calls from his Dana Point Law Office. Boss Hog is now the #2 material of the CRA.

Whilst Sir-Round was sitting on his throne in Elverta, Boss Hog was hard at work trying to arrange the deck chairs in the southern fiefdom. It is hard work attempting to keep the dwindling population of serfs happy after the Northern Cossacks were run out of town.

Could it be that Sir-Round is soliciting more tribute? Might people have to once again ring the toll booth at the doorway of the CRA to again receive the once-coveted signet?

The Assembly District 68 race is a hot ticket in the southern fiefdom and may well be the last real drama until several districts are forced open in 2024. Sir-Round and Boss Hog – two members of the CRA’s 900 (and soon to be 3 for a half-ton club) have to struggle to keep the CRA relevant again.

Which leads us to the next irony – when Sir-Round was the #2 material of the CRA he opposed combining the CRA’s endorsing conventions with the state convention. Boss Hog – who was in a self-imposed exile in Dana Point cried foul about the CRA’s attempts to gain sponsorships and the combining of the conventions.

It appears that the dwindling population of serfs and the ever-expanding population of lower nobility within CRA is unable to sustain such lavish affairs. What, with the price of admission going up dramatically and the sudden reversal of policy on the local endorsing conventions – it appears that Sir-Round is the duke of the Kingdom of Id.

In addition to the sudden combination of the Orange County endorsing convention with the state convention – there is a wrinkle in AD68 – former CRA VP Alexia Deligianni has also thrown her hat in to the ring.

Ms. Deligianni has been friends with Boss Hog for a long time. It would appear that the orders will be handed down to the serfs to endorse Ms. Deligianni.

Whether tribute is paid to the crown or not, it looks like the toll booth has been reset at the front door of the Kingdom of Id. Would-be travelers beware.
