That’s right! the power elite that got away with cheating in February because dozens of Steve Frank supporters chose not to register to pay $175 to vote in the party elections are back for their pound of flesh. How did they cheat?

The LAGOP blatantly violated their by-laws by inserting 22 people in to vacant districts without a publicly noticed vote as called for in the CAGOP By-Laws.

Jessica Patterson appointed several people to the proxies and credentials committee whose own status was challenged – clearly intended to show her authoritah – but also a blatant violation of Robert’s Rules. In addition, Yuba County, Glenn County and Tehama County were all allowed to field a total of 15 illegal delegates (All hand-picked for their loyalty to the regime)

These 37 illegal delegates are going to be critical to the latest attempt to jam down an endorsement of Kevin Faulconer. In fact, three paid political consultants are on the proxies and credentials committee. That is like giving Jesse James the keys to the bank.

In Feb We stopped their rule 5, even getting media coverage of the effort. Also we succeeded in electing two true activists to the CAGOP Board – and Jessica Patterson is angry and has been singling them both out for scorn and retribution.

Finally, we burned them for a dishonest attempt to spin a $200K check from the RNC – intended for expenses and salaries that they attempted to spin in to some sort of boon for the recall – in to actually spending the dammed money on the recall.

Do not forget that these folks actually OPPOSED the recall up until late 2020 when they finally realized it was getting legs.

Now the consultant class is coming for the CAGOP endorsement they thought they had rigged in Feb. Don’t think they won’t fight dirty. In fact, they called the FBI on your intrepid blogger. We’ve proven the cheating and the blatant flaunting of the unethical and corrupt behavior.

What is rule 4? Have a look at it. This is the money section:

If no Eligible Candidate receives the endorsement vote of more than 50 percent of those present and voting in the Final Vote, then no Eligible Candidate shall receive the CRP Endorsement for that office prior to the Recall Election.

Got it? The threshold is being lowered to 50% – so the fraud that Jessica Patterson and Team McCarthy perpetrated is a big deal.

Don’t forget – The CRP’s Staff admitted to me in the days before they called the FBI on me that they do not follow up on paperwork. This is how a moribund committee like Santa Cruz County was able to inflate their delegation to 8 members. There are other counties in the grip of the consultant class with similar grotesque exaggerations of their committee’s prowess.

Yuba County filed for 6 delegates for example despite the fact that they violated state law by not organizing. The stench from Yuba got so bad that Stephen Heter who screamed like a banshee about persecution resigned and real activists are now being welcomed on to that county party. But, don’t worry, the delegates from Yuba won’t change. Cha-Ching, 6 votes for Faulconer.

There is no telling how many county parties outright lied or exaggerated to get an extra delegate or two. I had estimated the total of garbage delegates to be about 15. Now we are over 52 questionable delegates. Consider that 1150 votes were cast, that 52 delegate number is a staggering 4.5% of the total. It pays to cheat.

It gets better – the Party of election integrity is also wanting to adopt the following:

If remote electronic voting is permitted during the CRP Endorsement Meeting, so long as notice of the voting procedure is included in the meeting notice, the Chairman may determine that proxy voting will not be permitted

Got it? Electronic voting is going to be used to jam down an endorsement of Faulconer by the California Republican Party… and if you think Proxy Voting is not going to be allowed, think again. We all know that Jessica Patterson is chemically dependent upon proxy voting. (As is Kevin McCarthy et al)

Welcome to Rule 4.

By the way – they are targeting 7-31 to implement this rule and likely 8-1-2021 to ran down the endorsement of Kevin Faulconer.

As I type this leftist Republican Donors are pouring money in to independent expenditures to prop up their puppet. The power is coming down and here we are again. Millions in campaign cash from unprincipled donors looking for a return on investment and a party apparatus that has been proven to be corrupt at its’ core.

P.S. Guess who wrote this disaster? None other than Fred Whitaker, the OC GOP Chairman. I also take note that Lindsey Stetson – a Jessica Patterson doppelganger is the “Recall Committee Chair”. That is like appointing Mitt Romney (or Patterson herself) to the Trump Re-Election Committee.

Did I mention that I really like living in Nevada now?

Disclosure: I was a paid consultant for John Cox in the past (no longer). I have also endorsed Assemblyman Kevin Kiley for Governor.

It is amazing really to see the parallels between Diane Harkey and John Moorlach.

In the aftermath of the election there is no ownership or personal responsibility. I received an email from the OCGOP via several people that shows Fred Whitaker is from the same camp. I did not even have a chance to highlight the effective, yet vain effort that the OCGOP put on (with $30K of Fred’s own money) to save Moorlach. It is pretty much impossible to complement anything Fred Whitaker and the OCGOP did as the ego is pre-eminent.

Whitaker doubled down (as did Moorlach) effectively calling the opponents of Moorlach’s liars.

Whitaker and Moorlach also projected blame for Moorlach’s defeat on others. In Fred’s mind, everyone should have listened to him and not run. There are two flaws in Whitaker’s logic, beyond the decision to move heaven and earth for Moorlach, the assumption that all of Vo and Muldoon’s voters would have chosen Moorlach, and the second flaw is covering up the underperformance of Republican voters in that district.

Honest brokers would realize that Moorlach likely loses a head-to-head matchup as voters disgusted with Moorlach would have either taken the democrat or left the universe. Both dynamics would erase the slim margin of total Republican votes. Take a look at the underperformance of Republican voters in this election to understand fully what is happening.

Consistently from the beginning, the issue with John Moorlach was the moral failure related to his Chief of Staff in the Senate covering up a rape by Bill Brough (who owed him $45k at the time) and Moorlach being so disconnected from his staff that he knew nothing. Yet the hysterical defense of comparing Moorlach to Brett Kavanaugh ruled the day.

Moorlach and Whitaker got caught smearing the rape victim – and Whitaker did it again in his summary email. Talk about tone-deaf and wondering why Women abandon the GOP so quickly?

Moorlach’s career in politics is also fraught with blatant hypocrisy that would have been enough to wreck him long before the rape of a staffer he later smeared came to light.

Diane Harkey shares all of these attributes (with different circumstances of course), based on my research. This time, however, in order to help save the OCGOP and others from themselves I am way out ahead of this. Perhaps Harkey can take responsibility unlike Moorlach and save herself the same fate.

Diane Harkey and John Moorlach are retreads

Diane Harkey and John Moorlach are beset with scandals made worse by their personal conduct

Diane Harkey and John Moorlach are career politicians

Diane Harkey and John Moorlach have consistently played the victim when challenged with their moral failures

Diane Harkey and John Moorlach are both darlings of the OCGOP establishment who do all the establishment things to promote them.

As we continue rolling out our research on Diane Harkey – the push-back is going to be predictible. The most incorrigible will make it about me. Most will just try to hide and avoid conflict. The few smart ones will read and digest the info.

I don’t care who the Chairman of the OCGOP is. What I do care about is teeing up another flawed fossil of OCGOP politics with more baggage than a 747 and watching her lose her second major race in 4 yearss.

Trish Todd, who was raped by Bill Brough while working for John Moorlach is the real victim here.

She was victimized by Lisa Bartlett whose disclosure of her incident with Bill Brough touched off a series of events that led to Trish coming out in public. Despite the common nexus, Bartlett endorsed Moorlach – making people ask the question if her disclosure was motivated by the spectre of having a race with Bill Brough for her next office (State Senate).

Trish was victimized by Tim Clark (Moorlach’s Chief of Staff and long time campaign consultant) who covered up the rape.

Trish was victimized by the OCGOP who stubbornly continue to attack her because of their own imbalanced egos.

Trish Todd was also victimized by John Moorlach.

The OCGOP leadership and the cocktail party circuit don’t care and now they are short a supervisor… soon to be two as they learned nothing about foisting a flawed candidate on the electorate.

We warned you about John Moorlach months, even years ago. Now we are warning you about Diane Harkey – read with an open mind or else the democrats will take over the OC Board of Supervisors.

There is a final point to make here. The OCGOP’s influence is dead. They no longer can determine the outcome of a race anymore. Since Diane Harkey blamed Darrell Issa for all of her maladies in 2018, the OCGOP can expect to be treated the same if Harkey loses in 2022. Mrs. Harkey ought to take a good close look at just how much the OCGOP can bring to the table and temper her expectations instead of allowing herself to get in to the same trap she did when she projected the impossible on to Darrell Issa.

I am glad John Moorlach is gone. I am not glad Katrina Foley won. However, my fear, that is grounded in reality is that history is set to repeat itself in 2022. You will see more detail soon.
