Post-election defeat, perhaps Mr. Alvord is interviewing for a job with the Bee?

Unless you have been living under a rock in the Sacramento-Area political scene, you know that Scott Alvord filed a lawsuit against Matt Oliver and me. The Sacramento Bee did their duty and reported on it multiple times.

As of today, 12-18-2022, your intrepid blogger has yet to see a process server. So, while the Placer County Court has some reference to a lawsuit, it is not real because neither myself nor Mr. Oliver has been served the lawsuit filing. You could never tell from reading the Bee.

The Sacramento Bee has been played and used by a small-time local politician. Worse, this happened during an election where the Bee accused your intrepid blogger of lying when I did not.

Did the Sacramento Bee do this on purpose? Ask Hannah Holzer, their attack dog reporter with a history of unvetted hit pieces on local electeds in Placer County:

While Holzer references an article in the local joke of a media group in Placer, the Bee added their first story the next day. Also, note her comments.

Professional Journalists do not cover lawsuits until the outcome. There is a reason why. Legal briefs in lawsuits may have little veracity and are always one-sided. (something the Bee relates to well) Further, lawsuit filings are known for slipshod facts, unproven allegations, and hyperbole. A journalist knows this; this is why repeating unproven allegations is unprofessional and even a breach of journalistic ethics.

This is a warning from your intrepid blogger. If you are in office or are active in the political scene, Look at the tweet from Hannah Holzer. This could be you at any time in the future. If you talk to the Bee (or Gold Country Media), you are taking an extreme risk; there is no upside in talking to them, given what they think of us.

Let their assassination of journalistic ethics in the case of your intrepid blogger inform you of what the Sacramento Bee is all about.

Wait Wait Wait, I will make a glorious comeback.

Smoked as we call it in Baseball.

According to Placer County, there are 13,900 ballots left COUNTYWIDE.

Let’s say for fantasy’s sake that all 13,000 are here. Shanti leads by 3898. Scott Alvord needs to win those by 28%. That is a 64-36 Margin Scott needs.

The problem however is this… Of the 23,407 ballots dropped today, only 3470 had a vote for Placer SUP D2. (15%)

So, let’s assume then that 25% (as opposed to 20% which is what a sup district is) of the remaining 13,900 have a vote for SUP D2. That’s 3,475. Again, Shanti leads by 3898. Unless you are a government actuary this means you are toast.

It looks like Scott Alvord can’t handle the exposure on the Right on Daily Blog.

New York Times Co. v. Sullivan, 376 U.S. 254 (1964), was a landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision ruling that the freedom of speech protections in the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution restricts the ability of American public officials to sue for defamation. The decision held that if a plaintiff in a defamation lawsuit is a public official or person running for public office, not only must they prove the normal elements of defamation—publication of a false defamatory statement to a third party—they must also prove that the statement was made with “actual malice”, meaning that the defendant either knew the statement was false or recklessly disregarded whether it might be false.

Scott Alvord controls several facebook groups and also nextdoor pages. I’ve heard complaints for years and have even written about Scott’s abuse of the groups to promote himself and stifle others. In response to a Wendy Biel who says Scott banned/blocked her from a group – he said this stuff in response:

So this is what it has come to for Scott Alvord, he can’t handle the written pounding on this blog opposing his candidacies for office that he has been receiving for his demonstrated pattern of dishonesty and hypocrisy. I am not sure what sort of attorney would make Scott Alvord believe a lawsuit – especially in the middle of a campaign – is a good idea. (Perhaps someone is hitting the hippee lettuce too much? Who knows…)

This is however, proof that Scott Alvord has proven that he can not handle scrutiny for how he has conducted himself, the decisions he has made and the fact that he overshot attempting to run for County Supervisor. It also underscores the importance of the Right On Daily Blog and our multi-decade mission to expose fraud in the political arena.

— Rocklin City Council / David Bass Update —

I have not endorsed in the Rocklin City Council Race. I do not intend to at this time. Suffice to say, it is one of the nastiest local races I have seen in a while. I will be writing more about it soon.

Men who I respect and have worked with for years are supporting Trial Lawyer David Bass for Rocklin City Council over Pastor Matthew Oliver. I have a lot of other friends supporting and working for Matthew Oliver. It is really a no-win situation for your intrepid blogger.

The focus of this post is David Bass and his repeated legal threats. If Mr. Bass is really this thin-skinned, he should not have run for office.

Only attorney candidates use this verbiage in their communication. No political consultant I know would condone uses of legal threats in Campaign Communication

It is also quite odd to attack your opponent in the same communication where you announce the endorsement of a key local democrat.

While complaining about libel and defamation – he launches character attacks of his own

Aaaaaaaand here is a much more direct legal threat.

This is just one blogger speaking, but if Mr. Bass believes that spouting lawyer terms and launching threats (veiled and otherwise) is a good strategy, he is going to get shellacked at the ballot box.

Then there is this:

This email is heavily redacted for a reason. If needed, I will publish a much less redacted version in the future. It is clear that beyond his facebook and social media posts that Bass has been busy with his community outreach. I am not sure if Bass has a professional campaign manager, because no one I know in the business would condone this sort of communication by the candidate themselves. “… lie under oath” – a clear reference to being in a courtroom.

Here is the bottom line – when candidates have to start playing lawyer, they are losing and it is clear they have lost focus on their campaigns. David Bass, an attorney by trade, should know better than to be doing what he is in a public forum.

Scott Alvord? He’s a best selling author:

Linked In says – “Leave Your Thoughts Here”

Here is Scott Alvord attempting to remake himself as some sort of supporter of Small Business, further attempting self-aggrandizement over something MANY people worked hard on for years to get started.

What is the truth about Alvord? He is a mask-nazi and a Branch Covidian that said the following on social media:

“Stop whining when our businesses get shut down” – R Scott Alvord

Fraud? Sure looks like it

Liar? You decide

Unfit for office? Definitely.
