CA GOV: Moonbeam COULDN’T fire aide making ‘whore’ comment…
…because the technical term here would be ‘divorce.’ Yes. Fox News reports that the source of the misogynist attack is now alleged to be no less than Anne Gust Brown herself, who is both wife and campaign aide to Jerry Brown. This is ‘alleged’ because there is some indication that this may be, of all things, a deliberate attempt by the Brown campaign to fix | Read More »
Ami Bera (D CAND, CA-03) covering up sex offender tenants?
There are two parts to this: what is known, and what was reported. It is known that the aforementioned Bera owned a transient hotel in California that had a registered sex offender (case involved a minor) living there in April of 2010. It is also known that living at the location in question would be effectively banned for sex offenders under the California Penal Code, | Read More »
Brown’s immigration smear of Whitman continues to unravel.
Two things to take away from this San Francisco Chronicle article (H/T: The Other McCain) on Jerry Brown’s Gloria Allred’s nonsensical attacks on Meg Whitman: First, this sentence: “Lawyers said an employer’s obligation upon receiving a no-match letter from the Social Security Administration is to check their own records for typographical or other errors, inform the employee that the records do not match and tell | Read More »
SF Chronicle goes as far as it can to support Fiorina.
Which is not their endorsement of her – then again, an endorsement of the Republican candidate for Senate by the San Francisco Chronicle would be about as likely as my being able to get to the Moon by jumping up and down on the ground hard enough. What they did instead was to give as strong a statement about Carly’s technical campaign skills as possible… | Read More »
QotD, Not Senator Ma’am’s Day Edition.
So, there has been a veritable litany of bad stimulus-related news lately for California: 12.4% unemployment 110 million in stimulus money in LA = 55 jobs, thanks to, of course, red tape National trust in the administration’s ability to help the economy now underwater, 30/33 …and Barbara Boxer’s reaction? It would’ve been worse without the stimulus (not a direct quote*). Which caused ABC7 political analyst | Read More »
Moonbeam Brown (D CAND, CA-GOV) opens mouth, attacks… CLINTON?
Wait, what? A quote from the video: “Meg Whitman. She stops at nothing. She’s even got Clinton lying about me. That’s right.” Note the tense, there… and, yes, that’s what Brown really said. And a little while later he went on to mock Bill Clinton by saying “I did not have taxes with that state.” I assume that Brown wants to win the California gubernatorial | Read More »
Boxer pot aide should have gone with different drug.
You have probably read or heard by now that one of Senator Barbara Boxer’s used-to-be-senior-aides got busted for trying to bring pot into Capitol Hill. I say ‘used-to-be’ because they fired him, of course: aside from the bad image generally, as the Politico article notes Sen. Boxer is currently being a War on Some Drugs warrior when it comes to pot legalization. Now, I will | Read More »
State of the Race: Carly Fiorina (R CAND, CA-SEN).
I had the opportunity to talk with Carly yesterday on what is happening in the race right now. For those not following the Avastin controversy, it’s a cancer medication that is currently the target of a drive to have its FDA approval removed for last-stage breast cancer patients. Claims that this is primarily for financial reasons have been bolstered by this report from the BBC | Read More »
Moonbeam Brown protested at Code Pink shindig.
This report of a lie-in by pro-victory in Iraq protesters at a fundraiser held for Jerry Brown by notorious terrorist sympathizer Jodie Evans highlights a very, very serious set of questions involving not only Brown’s associations, but also his own motivations. The fact that Brown is attempting to get Code Pink’s money like this leads to various questions: Jodie Evans once reportedly told a Gold | Read More »

Meet Mattie Fein (R CAND, CA-36).
Mattie is running in Jane “Wasn’t Newsweek sweet to write that about me” Harman’s seat, which is one of those seats that reminds you that ‘Democratic hawk politician’ is about as much an oxymoron as ‘conservative Democratic politician’ is. Mattie had a bit to say about that, and the seat in general: Mattie’s site is here: I would also like to note that this particular | Read More »
Meet John Colbert (R CAND, CA-29).
It’s pronounced ‘Kohl-bert,’ he’s up against Adam Schiff, and John can’t stand that stupid delta smelt, either. That last is starting to be a theme among California candidates and legislators: well, the Republican ones, at least. Anyway, we talked yesterday: John’s site is here. Crossposted to Moe Lane.
Meet Mike Griffing.
So, remember this guy? As you recall, this guy was slapping at cameramen at a California Nurses Association (CNA) anti-Meg Whitman rally the other day. At least, this guy was until he came to the belated realization that he was getting filmed by two different people. Well, it turns out that he’s not a nurse. Or, at least, not just a nurse. Say hi to | Read More »
Carly Fiorina vs. the Sainted Delta Smelt.
Newly-chosen candidate Carly Fiorina (R CAND, CA-SEN) had a conference call today, and spoke somewhat about an issue of some interest to both myself and the California agricultural community: the delta smelt. For those who are unaware: the delta smelt is, to quote Rep George Radanovich (R, CA-19), “a worthless little worm that needs to go the way of the dinosaur” – mostly because it’s | Read More »
Lots of Primaries today.
According to RCP, we’ve got primaries in California, Iowa, Maine, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, North Dakota, South Carolina, South Dakota, and Virginia. The news has been dominated by California’s, Nevada’s, and of course South Carolina’s – but they’re all important, so if you’re a voter in that state, hie yourselves and any reliable Republican voters within reach to a polling station. You can let the | Read More »

State of the Race: Steve Poizner (R CAND, CA-GOV).
Primary’s in a week: Steve’s in the homestretch. Steve’s site is here. Crossposted to Moe Lane.
Meet Elizabeth Emken (R CAND, CA-11).
The district is listed as competitive by Cook (R+1, Leans Democratic) and is one of the districts threatened by the infamous delta smelt. Elizabeth recently also made a Daily Beast list of 11 GOP women candidates to watch. Elizabeth’s site can be found here. Moe Lane Crossposted to Moe Lane.
Meet Dana Walsh (R CAND, CA-08).
Well, here’s my Dana Walsh interview: If my intro above the video sounds flat, it’s not because Dana is running in Nancy Pelosi’s district. Having a candidate willing to speak truth to power in Madame Speaker’s home district is actually good news for the party and for conservatism; we need to contest these seats, and sometimes everything lines up for a challenger. Dana’s a small | Read More »
Barbara Boxer (D, CA) to get primary challenger: Mickey Kaus.
Seriously. Pioneering political blogger Mickey Kaus took out papers filed to run for U.S. Senate in California, he told LA Weekly. The Venice resident said he’ll run this year against Barbara Boxer for her seat. He said he took out filed papers at with the Los Angeles County Registrar of Voters, although a spokeswoman there could not yet confirm the filing. The Democrat has been | Read More »
