Surprised that GOP candidate was behind fake letter? Not me
By Mike LawsonItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s no surprise to me that the Attorney GeneralÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s office has identified Tan Nguyen as suspect No. 1 in the mailing of 14,000 threatening letters to Latino voters in Central Orange County. NguyenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s campaign was xenophobic from the start.Nguyen called me months ago, but I didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t believe it was him. Not at first. Then, as the evidence mountedÃ¢â‚¬â€the irrationality, the veiled threatsÃ¢â‚¬â€I soon realized this was no fake. This really was the Republican candidate for Loretta SanchezÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s 47th Congressional District seat.The clincher came when he said heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d read my political blog, TheLiberalOC.com, and he wanted me to stop writing about him.
