If you replaced the name of all of the Republicans with Democrats in the lead to this OC Weekly story, I wonder if it would be getting more press:
Accused child molester Jeffrey Ray Nielsen has been buddies with Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, former Orange County Republican bigwig Tom Fuentes and Sheriff Mike Carona. District Attorney Tony Rackauckas once hired him as a prosecution analyst. Mike Schroeder, the top political adviser to Carona and Rackauckas, successfully recommended Nielsen for USC law school.
About a year ago, OC WeeklyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s R. Scott Moxley wrote about allegations that Jeffery Ray Nielsen, son of the Republican former mayor of Fountain Valley, had sexually molested a young boy in 2003.
The D.A.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s office has postponed the trial for almost 40 months. Ironically, in that time, another victim has spoken up and accused Nielsen of molestation in his Virginia home during the time that Nielsen was working for Dana Rohrabacher in Washington D.C.
Nielsen has some problems, but look at RohrabacherÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s list of friends:
DanaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s wife is a convicted felon.
Tony Rudy, DanaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s former chief of staff is a convicted felon.
Jack Abramoff, a close friend to Dana, is a convicted felon.
Jeff Nielsen, an old pal and employee of Dana, has been accused more than once of child molestation.
If I lived in the 46th, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d vote for Jim Brandt.[The 1st OC Weekly Story] [YesterdayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s OC Weekly Story] [Jim Brandt]
