On April 22nd, a piece was posted on Redstate.com by Moe Lane entitled “So why DID Rep Lois Capps (D, California-24) hire a drunken embezzler?” Based on what was commonly known at the time the piece was powerful but it only scratched the surface. As a reporter I don’t shine my work through any political lens, but when I began investigating the circumstances surrounding the hit-and-run manslaughter crash December 6th in which Mrs. Capps’ District Representative Raymond Victor Morua III struck (and ultimately killed) UCSB graduate 27 year-old Mallory Rae Dies, I made some astonishing discoveries.
Between April 13th-17th they were published in A Five Part Series in The Santa Barbara News-Press. The series, which was heavily vetted by News-Press lawyers, documents multiple cover-ups involving Mrs. Capps District Director (Mollie Culver) the VA and the lawyer for the U.S. House Office of General Counsel who is now defending Mrs. Capps, Ms. Culver and their staff.
