Come On Guys – we have contracts on the line!

For those of you scoring at home, the scorecard for rigging the CAGOP Convention stands at:

Modoc = -7 from Steve

Tehama = +2 for Jessica

Yuba = +8 for Jessica

Glenn = +8 for Jessica

Los Angeles = +12 for Jessica

That is a total swing of 37 votes so far in a 1430 voter universe. That is 2.5% of the universe folks. That is a statistically significant sample, and guess what – we have some fraud in Orange County coming soon to a theater near you.

I’ve had several off the record conversations with insiders – they all are telling me this is not deliberate but that the CAGOP’s staff is incompetent and is being taken advantage of by consultants. I am struggling to 100% agree with that due to the amount of game playing I have seen thus far. I will concede that some of this is indeed lacksadasical enforcement of the by-laws. There is simply too much of this for it not to be fraud and malfeasance at some level. I wish I could prosecute the consultants that are shepherding this fraud.

So the latest installment surrounds cheating in LA County:

February 18, 2021
Patricia Welch, Proxies & Credentials Committee Chair
California Republican Party
1001 K Street, Fourth Floor
Sacramento, CA 95814

Madam Chair:

I hereby challenge the credentials of twelve (12) regular delegates allegedly elected by the Los Angeles County Republican Central Committee (LAGOP) to fill delegate vacancies in State Senate, Assembly, and Congressional districts.

The delegates are Conyers Davis (SD 30), Megan Dutra (CD 38), Alex Early (AD 46), Eric Eskandari (CD 29), Eddie Kouyoumdjian (AD 48), Charles Moran (SD 35), Fernando Ponce (AD 58), Rodrigo Santillano (AD 51), Sergei Shubin (SD 33), Scott Snapp (AD 50), Sylvia Southerland (SD 32), and Chris Wangsaporn (SD 22).1

Section 2.01.05 (C) (2) of the Standing Rules and Bylaws of the California Republican Party states:

For a vacancy in the office of a nominee for the Member of the State Senate, Member of the State Assembly or Member of the United States House of Representatives, the vacancy shall be filled by the election of the Republican County Central Committee that has the largest number of registered Republicans within the respective Senate, Assembly or congressional District of any county that contains a portion of the district. An election to fill the vacancy shall be held not later than 60 days after notice of the vacancy is sent by the Committee to the appropriate Republican County Central Committee or Committees. A vacancy in such office shall be filled only by a person who is a registered Republican voter within the Senate, Assembly or Congressional district to be represented.

According to their draft meeting minutes and the statements of committee members, the Los Angeles County Republican Central Committee (LAGOP) did not fill the delegate vacancies by election for any of these districts. See the attached draft LAGOP meeting minutes for December 2020 and January 2021.

Because these delegates were not elected to fill the vacant districts by the county central committee in accordance with the Standing Rules and Bylaws of the California Republican Party, as last amended on September 8, 2019, they must be removed from the CRP delegate list.

My purpose is to make sure all county central committees are adhering to the bylaws and I am sure you will agree. If you have any questions, I can be reached at XXXXXXX@outlook.com or (XXX) XXX-XXXX.

Respectfully submitted,
Carl Brickey
Appointed Delegate (2021-2022)
California Republican Party
1 CRP Delegate List, accessed February 8, 2021.

P.S. There is already a nominee in SD32, Rita Topolian… that should have never been entered in, on top of the absurdity of what they accepted from Richard Sherman and Andy Garakhani. This is just more proof that the staff of the CRP are either in on rigging this election or they are completely asleep at the switch.

Blogger’s Note: I am not posting the draft minutes from the LAGOP at the request of Mr. Brickey. However, it appears that Sherman had them delayed in a vain attempt to cover up what he attempted to do in violation of the CAGOP By-Laws.

There are millions of dollars of consulting contracts riding on this election, and re-electing Jessica Patterson by any means possible is part of that metric.

The logo is hysterical. But the voting system itself is secure

I am 100% convinced that the Staff of the CAGOP is in on it. It is what it is. I also had a private session with the election vendor who made several statements in the meeting suggesting he had been breifed by the staff before the meeting what to expect from “Our Side”.

We’ve laid out a ton of games being played and some grotesque violations of Party By-Laws. So let’s start with some facts:

Tehama County – 2 dubious votes for Jessica and Deborah Wilder

Glenn County – 8 Dubious votes for Jessica and Deborah Wilder

Yuba County – 8 Dubious votes for Jessica and Deborah Wilder.

Unlike President Trump, we are laying out our evidence of fraud and cheating BEFORE the convention and making specific requests of the governing bodies to deal with the fraud.

Then there is Modoc County which was crushed by the CAGOP’s staff. 7 votes ripped out of the Steve and Laurie Wallace Column.

There is no guarantee that the CAGOP’s Proxies and Credentials Committee – that were all appointed by Jessica Patterson will rule in any manner that makes legal sense. They could very well make a political ruling. There is no telling how the complaints will be resolved.

If that 18+7 = 25 votes issue is not enough, consider this scenario that I ran by the election vendor:

The CAGOP’s By-laws require people to be present with no proxies at the Northern Region Caucus (or any other). With on-line voting, there is nothing stopping David Stafford Reade from paying the dues and registrations of all the staffers that normally give proxies only and then logging in to the Northern Region Caucus on multiple computers – thus circumventing the by-law mandating in person attendance.

I got the vendor to admit to me that people could forward their secret link to anyone else to use. This means 10 people could cast 100 votes in the Northern Region Caucus meeting and re-elect Deborah Wilder. 

This violates the in person rule.

This violates the 2 proxies per person rule.

This is also grossly unethical.

Fraudulent Counties. 1 Man 10 votes. This is how you rig an election.

If I’ve thought of this, you can make bank the bullies rampaging around the north state have demanded people forward them their links with which to vote and have it all lined up.

I am going to say one thing at the end here. The election software is secure and solid. I am not worried about that part.

I am concerned about the above scenario, on top of the cheating we’ve uncovered already and the fact that I have been getting negative reports about the voting system’s training seminars. Most people have not been happy with the system at all and do not find it easy or straightforward to use.

Now multiply this by 10 and you have the chair election on Sunday. This what I think and why and since I know the people involved and the ghastly amount of money riding on the election, I put nothing past them.

Former State Senator Andy Vidak and Joel Anderson told people calling them raging on them to pound sand.

Did you know that legislators all over the state are losing their minds on their delegates? We detailed how Randy Voepel and Marie Waldron set fire to long time supporters to rig their delegations for Jessica Patterson.

Now – we understand that Ted Gaines (Who is finally in his last office and will be termed out soon) who normally does not care about things CRP has been trying to get his delegates in to a zoom meeting.

Jim Patterson’s Cheif of Staff has been calling and trying to strong-arm delegates.

But Jessica Patterson is winning. I took an email she sent today memorializing the humiliation of the withdrawl of Rule 5 – the Faulconer Jam Down By-Law Change.

Dear CAGOP Delegate,

I’m writing to provide an important update regarding a discussion I just had with Sacramento County GOP Chairwoman Betsy Mahan. As you know, Chairwoman Mahan submitted a bylaw change proposal intended to ensure that the California Republican Party could make a candidate endorsement (ahem Faulconer) in the Newsom Recall election.

While I believe this proposal was well-intentioned a sham to ensure that our party could take an official position for Kevin Faulconer who desperately needed the party infrastructure as we work to remove the worst governor in state history from office, the unintended consequence is that it was dividing us at a time when nothing is more important than being unified and focused on making sure the recall qualifies for the ballot. Accordingly, I have asked Chairwoman Mahan to withdraw her proposed bylaw change, and she has graciously agreed to do so because my campaign for re-election was getting shredded due to the game-playing.

We got caught. Sorry not sorry. We’ll try another trick later to complete the sale of the GOP to Faulconer.

As we gather this weekend, let us continue the critical work of helping qualify the recall effort, holding Gavin Newsom and his radical allies accountable and offering a strong, unified Republican vision that will continue our important work building our party. We’ve been very successful during the last two years, but we have much more to do.

Thank you for your commitment to the California Republican Party because I don’t care. I look forward to seeing you virtually this weekend and taking the fight to Gavin Newsom and the Democrats. Maybe we will drop another 3 legislative seats in 2022? Who knows?


Jessica Patterson is having a rough time of it. I think the whole Oligarchy of Controlled Failure was not expecting Steve Frank to run so strong against them.

And they got the Attorney involved too. Sounds like a forest fire.

Feb 182021

Do you remember when? Only You Can Prevent Forest Fires.

Apparently, the staff of the CAGOP are irritated that their malfeasance is exposed and now they are playing the victim. After repeated refusals to provide clear answers to a variety of questions about the voracity of the election – they got their attorney involved.

Apparently, a metaphorical reference to Smokey the Bear caused them all to have PTSD:

Good morning Steve,

The attached emails (highlighting added by me) were sent to CRP staff from Aaron Park, purportedly on your behalf in his capacity as your campaign manager.  Recent events in Washington, DC and Nashville force us to take these threats seriously – we cannot assume this is a joke or metaphor – accordingly, we are sharing these emails with law enforcement and will leave it to them to assess Mr. Park’s intent.

CRP staff will no longer communicate with Mr. Park regarding this weekend’s convention.  Staff is happy to continue communicating with you directly or another person you’d like to appoint as your representative.  Staff will continue to do their best to respond to any and all questions you have regarding Voter Science, delegates, proxies, and any other convention related issues.

I’m at my office today (number below) if you’d like to discuss this further.

It’s hysterically funny really as I have never been to Nashville or Washington DC. It is also an indicator that something is seriously wrong with the CAGOP’s staff that I have to send them 7 or more requests for the same information with no response.

The Forest Fire? The allegations (proven) of fraud and misconduct. These people had it within their paradigm to stop all of this by simply answering questions. They have selectively answered questions, and have ignored others.

My questions were/are not a game and I was not trying to be clever. But apparently, it is time to burn it down.

Unless we can work out an accomodation and get more specific answers in the next 24 hours, it is going to be a long 4 days following. It is quite frustrating that you’ve put me in a position where I have to respond like this, but apparently someone needs to play the vitcim.

I’ll await your response because only you guys can prevent forest fires as I stand here with flares and a gas truck.

I left the typos in my email. I will be happy to send any police investigator (if one even calls) blogs where I have used these terms for years as heaven forbid the CRP staff is special. Perhaps this will be like the FBI investigation Mark Spannagel and David Reade claimed in 2011?

I had attempted to give the CAGOP’s staff a lifeline before I started “torching” them for their lack of integrity and response. (I better disclaim the word torching lest it cause more consternation) so now I have my response, an attorney who does not like Smokey the Bear.

So let’s ask the questions in this email that the CRP’s Staff have refused to answer and are now hiding behind an attorney to avoid:

Which districts in LA were each of the 15 challenged delegates placed in? Who placed them? How were they Placed?

Regarding County Party Delegates:

Do we have some mechanism of proving the voracity of the precinct operations some claim?

How is the County Certification process vetted and verified? Which counties claimed to be certified / submitted for that?

What is the process of the extra delegates being awarded – is it similar to the mystery process whereby Modoc was disqualified?

Is there a list of which counties got what extra delegates and upon what basis?

Lastly – did any counties claim to have voter registration programs? If no, ignore the question. If yes, please explain the process for verification and how you verified those, including which counties submitted for this program.

Steve Frank sent the same email to the whiny CAGOP Staff after they started hiding behind their attorney. They admitted in writing that they do little if any follow up and basically take everyone’s word for it. I still want to know what a precinct operation in Santa Cruz or Berkely looks like as it could be 1/4 mile between Republicans in those cities.

The California Republican Party Staff could have prevented a forest fire, but they have refused to answer basic questions about the integrity of the delegate selection and awarding process.

While trashing Modoc County unilaterally, when similar issues were raised in three other counties – Glenn, Tehama and Yuba, they sent the complaints to the proxies and credentials committee. At best this is unequal treatment, at worst it shows staff complicity and bias in the campaign(s).

Further – several people have not gotten log in information to pay dues, register or vote if they have been able to register. The number of issues has been too significant to ignore as coincidental.

The contact information in the CAGOP delegate list is a mess. I see 5-10 correction requests a day. There are still more errors manifesting as fast as others are resolved.

Then add in the backdrop of the CAGOP being mortgaged to a governor candidate before the recall has even qualified and the infamous “Rule 5” which is getting media coverage and you do have a full blown forest fire.

Well, dear delegates here we are – now it is only you can prevent forest fires. (Attorneys be dammed)

Steve Frank’s race for Chairman of the California Republican Party is simple. “A party of delegates and activists, for delegates and activists…A party dedicated to defeating the Democrats…not fattening the wallets of hired guns”

Vote for Steve Frank.

If you care about California Politics, you know there is a recall election. Right now the consultants are trying to rig the CAGOP officer elections to give Faulconer total control of the CAGOP.

We’ve been exposing rampant delegate fraud. Glenn, Tehama and Yuba County violated election law in the way they organized, similar to Modoc County. Yet only Modoc County was stripped of its’ convention delegates. Why? Modoc supports the challenger, the other three are controlled by the incumbent chair’s campaign manager.

We’ve been exposing questionable actions of CAGOP Staff in favor of the current regime.

We’ve exposed the Rule 5 Drama – where the consultants that control the rules committee are trying to strip the by-laws of the state party clean in order to enable as few as just the Chair herself to endorse Kevin Faulconer or a 7 out of a 13 member executive board quorum.

We’ve detailed how David Stafford Reade, the campaign manager for Jessica Patterson (who is a longtime associate of Faulconer) is also the grassroots coordinator for Kevin Faulconer. Sarah Nelson, the interim director of the CAGOP came up in the Faulconer operation and the CAGOP’s top fundraiser Molly Parnell also works for Faulconer. Cozy.

We’ve also talked ad naseum that the CAGOP’s donor list was sent to Kevin Faulconer under the guise of him being on some committee.

A marginal governor candidate – Mike Grover Coltharp may have gotten the biggest reveal yet of just how corrupt the CRP is and how far down the Faulconer river it is:

Thank you for the e-mail,

I was told directly by Peter the Vice Chair of the CA GOP that they already gave Kevin the donor’s list.  When I asked why I could not get that list he said the donors already are working with him.  This was the second time he told me that. 

I thought that was a bit odd because, the GOP has not officially met to endorse.

Thank you Peter Kuo for the honesty, it is appreciated. The California Republican Party is being proven to be corrupt to its’ core. Is it any wonder we’ve lost a net 1,300,000 voter registrations in the last two years, why 10 county parties are dead and 17 more are on life support? Who cares about ground up and voter registration when it is time to cashier.

You need to know what is being done to you and who is doing it. The only way to stop this is to elect Steve Frank for CAGOP Chair.
