Lynn Daucher: Carpetbagger

We received a very concise and well-written piece of mail from the Lou Correa campaign yesterday. The mailer points out that Daucher has three homes and none of them are in the 34th State Senate District. It also claims that Daucher has opened a new Senate account and is taking money to run in 2008 in a different District up North.

From the mailer:

…not one of her homes is in our Senate District!

So Daucher went out and rented a small Fullerton apartment in January to “establish residency” and run for State Senate here.

When Orange County Register reporter Martin Wisckol asked her how much time she spends at that apartment, Daucher stated: “I’m a legal resident of Fullerton and that’s all I’m going to say on the subject.”

Conservative bloggers were parked outside of Orange City Council candidate Carol Rudat’s Orange home monitoring her garbage output, but where are they on this carpetbagger?

    I don’t know, Mike? Where have all the liberal activists been throughout Tom Umberg’s Assembly career? After all, he lived in Villa Park the entire time he represented central OC in the Assembly?

    Matt Cunningham / Jubal,

    Answering a question with another question. That’s not a very sturdy debtate technique.

    I’m still pretty new at all of this and I haven’t heard a thing about Umberg’s residency…If you can point me to a place to read more about his residency issues, I’d be appreciative. I’ve tried googling and I couldn’t find anything. Have you blogged about it?

    You must be aware that MANY liberal activists (myself included) have campaigned for Umberg’s opponents for this very reason (residency).
    I find it interesting that you seem to be posting here more often than on your own blog. Could it be because OCBlog has become little more than a vehicle for posting positive pieces about Matt’s friends and clients, negative stuff about their opponents, and has resorted to accusations of lawn sign destruction (horrors!) of late. Sad. I hope we can all return to some intelligent discourse there after the election. In the meantime, this blog seems to be raising the important issues in a way that lacks an agenda.
    I don’t recall Mike ever blogging in support of Mr. Umberg, so I don’t think you can honestly accuse him of supporting carpetbaggers who are Democrats.
    Matt/Jubal has hammered Carol Rudat in Orange repeatedly about the residency issue. Should we not pose the same valid questions to Lynn Daucher?

    I’m one of those who supported Tom Umberg in spite of the fact that he has a home in Villa Park and rents a condo in Santa Ana. I did so because he was the better candidate to represent the 69th Assembly District.

    This is the unfortunate reality of our voter registration laws. Matt/Jubal, you have complained about Rudat’s residency with good reason. I do find it interesting that you have chosen to ignore the residency issue facing Lynn Daucher while complaining about Rudat. But then again, I guess you have to pick your battles.

    But seriously Matt, the least you can do is be consistent and honest about the issue instead of bringing Umberg into the discussion. If you are so concerned about Rudat’s residency, and based upon your posts on OCBlog you’re a bit obsessed, why not express the same concern about Daucher?

    It appears that you and the Republican party are more concerned about the possibility of undocumented immigrants voting in elections than candidates running to represent districts they don’t live in, unless the candidate you don’t like, Republican or Democrat, has questionable residency.
