How many of you remember the AD-03 Race in 2012?

Tehama County Supervisor Bob Williams ran against Assemblyman Dan Logue in 2012. Dave Gilliard talked Bob Williams in to spending $50k +/- (of his own money, no less) running against Dan Logue. In addition, Bob Williams is in debt – as Dave Gilliard typically spends all of his clients in to substantial debt.

Invariably, Williams was promised the pole position in the 2014 AD03 race.

Bob Williams was used. Dave Gilliard and David Stafford Reade knew 100% that Doug LaMalfa was going to quit the State Senate after winning his Congressional Primary.

The purpose of Williams running was to bleed money off of Dan Logue, making it much more difficult for Logue to compete with Jim Nielsen.

Then Logue’s Kidney kicked in, Nielsen won without a fight.

Bob Williams, no longer useful to Dave Gilliard and David Stafford Reade found his way under the David Stafford Reade bus. (With Willie Preston and others)

James Gallagher is now the chosen favorite – he has the endorsements of Gentleman Jim and Doug LaMalfa. Gallagher is also Dave Gilliard’s latest paycheck in the North State.

Too bad for Gallagher, he is a lawyer that Gilliard is trying to re-brand. (Gilliard seems to have a pattern of re-branding candidates, like taking someone that has never held an insurance license and transforming them into an owner of an insurance agency).

Gallagher has an opponent – Ryan Schohr, a real farmer. Looks like the reverse of Keene vs LaMalfa. This should be fun – and it would not surprise me if there are a few pissed off people in Tehama County looking to assist his effort.

Sacramento Bee Piles on to Mark Spannagel and Doug LaMalfa

Dave Gilliard says that Doug LaMalfa had nothing to do with the attack Website that Mark Spannagel put up? You expect us to believe that Doug LaMalfa’s chief of staff and Doug LaMalfa did not talk about this? Mark Spannagel won’t blow his nose without talking to Dave Gilliard and David Stafford Reade first.

SO – who authorized this? Who actually placed the content on this site and vetted it? It is way too sophisticated and well researched to have been done by Mark Spannagel alone. I think we just got another Gilliard special.

Enter the Sacramento Bee:

The website originally carried the disclaimer “Free Thinkers for D’Acquisito,” apparently a reference to another Republican candidate running for the open seat, according to a screenshot that the Aanestad campaign provided. But candidate Michael Dacquisto says he had no part in the site, and records released by the company hosting the site show that the domain name was registered in the name of Mark Spannagel, the chief of staff of yet another Republican candidate, state Sen. Doug LaMalfa.

This is called fraud. (Which is a felony)

Micheal Dacquisto had the best quote of the Bee Article: “Doug LaMalfa ought to fire that guy who did it and if he didn’t know he did it, which I expect is what he’ll say, then he is incompetent and can’t keep control of his own staff,” Dacquisto said. 

I think this story will have legs and that Dave Gilliard could indeed lose another race in June / November – because Doug LaMalfa ain’t calling the shots here, that’s for sure. It appears that Dave Gilliard set up Mark Spannagel to do his dirty work so that Spannagel will end up under the bus and Gilliard will stay out of Federal Prison for another election cycle.
Big Loser: Mark Spannagel (prodigy of David Stafford Reade)
Bigger Loser (figuratively and literally) Doug LaMalfa
Winner: Dave Gilliard (because the checks still cash)
Bigger Winner: Sam Aanestad
Biggest Winner: America – because there is a significant chance we will get a real Republican in Congress instead of another McCarthy sock puppet.
