Republican Chairman thinks it’s funny to break the law

On Tuesday during the OC GOP fundraiser dinner that was disguised as a celebration for Flag Day, OC Republican Chairman Scott Baugh called Joel Bishop onto stage and had him switch his party registration from Democrat to Republican in front of the 1,000 people in attendance.

Then Baugh made a joke that all OC Dems switching parties should do so in front of 1,000 people. He was referring to the fact that when Republicans aren’t being watched by 1,000 people, they’ll resort to illegal tactics to get Dems to switch parties.

Someone needs to tell Scott that breaking the law isn’t funny.

    Someone should really have Joel Bishop talk with Mark Leyes about the benefits of climbing into the big tent with the Republicans. Joel the first chance they get, the righties will impune your character for once being a Democrat, or not being Republican enough. Van Tran sucessfully used that tactic against Leyes when they each ran for the Assembly in 2004.

    Good luck Joel, sorry to see ya go. I hope this works out for you better than it did for Leyes.

    As far as Baugh’s promise to have 1,000 witnesses for every registration switch from Democrat to Republican… I’ll put it in the same place that I put his promise to stop using the fraud ridden bounty program.
