The Way Back Machine: Carona Supporters from 1998 and 2006

It’s amazing what you can find on the Internet with some precise search terms.

While Mike Carona finds himself under federal indictment, he also can presume to count on the backing of his many supporters of his 1998 race for Sheriff and his 2006 re-election bid.

I will be interested to hear what these people have to say about the indictment and what they believe the eventual outcome will be.  See the lists of supporters after the jump.

    There are far too many Democrats on that list.

    I don’t think this dog will hunt. Although Dana Parsons makes some good points today about Carona having been corrupt from the start, I don’t think it’s reasonable to expect those who supported him in his first election (1998) to have been able to see that.

    Carona may indeed have been bad from Day One, but most people who start out in a job do so with the positive expectations of those around them. Things often go downhill from there.

    I never voted for George W. Bush, but I know decent and thoughtful people who did vote for him in his first election. He mess he has made couldn’t have been predicted even by his worst detractors, IMO. I think the same can be said for those who backed Carona in 1998.

    Well, you can excuse ignorance in 1998, but what about all the people who endorsed Carona in 2006, after there had been plenty of time to observe his corrupt cronies, personal peccadilloes, and hubris?

    My personal theory is that a lot of the Republican politicos are perfectly happy with a corrupt sheriff and a prosecutor who seems to always turn a blind eye to political corruption.

    Flowerszz over at OCBlog says that much of Carona’s behavior is what she expects from Republicans here in Orange County

    I read about the indictment and some of it is not anything out of the ordinary, I mean in all reality I do not know any elected out there that has not used their “electedness” to their advantage…

    Bush’s extraordinary politicization of the US Attorney’s office was designed to protect corrupt Republicans from prosecution, but that has unraveled, and the corrupt cronyism of his over-reaching is coming to the harsh glare of reality.

    America’s Sheriff turns out to be just like America’s Mayor and so many other Republicans, a corrupt asshole who surrounds himself with crooks and liars, leads a tawdry personal life, yet still wins the supported of Republican party. a nasty bunch of wide-stanced pigs feeding at the government trough.

  5. October 31, 2007 at 9:27 am

    you can excuse ignorance in 1998, but what about all the people who endorsed Carona in 2006

    I agree with you completely. There’s no excuse for those who endorsed Carona (or Street, for that matter) in 2006. But the post was about those who endorsed in 1998.

    a lot of the Republican politicos are perfectly happy with a corrupt sheriff and a prosecutor who seems to always turn a blind eye to political corruption.

    I agree and will take it a bit further: they actively seek and desire a sheriff and DA who will turn a blind eye. I’m sure Bill Hunt has his faults, and some of them could be pretty grievous faults. But the reason the OCGOP turned against him was simply that he made it clear he would not turn that blind eye.

    See also Wade, Wally.

    Actually, the post had both the 1998 endorsers and the re-election endorsers from 2006, although it could have been made a little more clear, and included links. The name that really caught my eye in the later list was Bernie Kerik, former NY Police Commissioner who pleaded guilty to accepting illegal gifts. Republicans have family values – it’s just that the borrowed them from the Soprano family.

    Gila — I thought the headline would have been more slef-explanatory. I enjoyed some of the typos in certain people’s names but compare both lists and there are a lot of 2006ers on the 1998 list. And I left the Dems on the list because it would be unfair not to.

  8. October 31, 2007 at 11:01 am

    Dan — I’d like to see just the 2006 list, and maybe the 2002 list. I really can’t fault the people who endorsed in 1998, and I think it muddies the water to name them.

    Go ahead and include the Dems! As I say, there’s no excuse for having endorsed Carona in 2006. I don’t care what party one belongs to. (In spite of what a certain person has been saying about me, I absolutely do NOT defend Dems just because they’re Dems. Never have, never will.)

    I do note with some amusement that Aliso Viejo’s Green former Mayor, Karl Warkomski, was on one of the lists!!

    I’m starting to use Jon Fleischman as a barometer. Whenever he starts talking about a politico being his good friend and an honorable individual I’m almost assured a jail sentence is pending.

  10. October 31, 2007 at 11:23 am

    Another contrary indicator! Good catch, RH!

  11. October 31, 2007 at 12:13 pm

    Fascinating lists. Thanks for finding them Dan!

  12. Northcountystorm
    October 31, 2007 at 6:48 pm

    Some would say the fault in endorsing Carona in 1998 was he was a Republican endorsed by the County GOP and was running against a Democrat, Santa Ana Police Chief Paul Walters, the latter endorsed by the AOCDS and the recent Gompers Award winner, Wayne Quint..

  13. October 31, 2007 at 7:12 pm

    NCS, as far as I’m concerned there’s no problem with Dems endorsing Reeps in non-partisan races. In all but the most liberal of areas the sheriff and DA candidates will probably be Reeps regardless. The problem I have is with people of either party endorsing candidates who have obvious problems.

    I sometimes hear “but the other person was so bad!” Well, then don’t endorse anyone.

  14. Northcountystorm
    October 31, 2007 at 7:32 pm

    Understood, and your original point was good about Carona’s ethical shortcomings…who knew?

    But in this case you had a Democrat with an excellent law enforcement background and the GOP machine was backing Republican Carona., whose own law enforcement credentials were weaker in comparison. Carona was their man in their perpetual pursuit of hegemony behind the Orange Curtain.

    So maybe the Dems who endorsed Carona in 98 should have at least taken your advice and not endorsed anyone.

  15. October 31, 2007 at 9:07 pm

    It’s tough for an elected to make a case against endorsing an incumbent who has a strong chance for re-election. Especially in OC where a not endorsing the Sheriff leaves a person open to accusations of not being tough enough on crime.
    I’m fascinated to see which electeds had the cojones to buck the GOP machine, take into account the questions raised about Carona’s integrity (see OC Weekly investigations that go back many years) and NOT ENDORSE the Sheriff for re-election in 2008.
    Loretta Sanchez and Joe Dunn are two of the biggest names that don’t appear on the lists.
    Which other prominent politicos are missing?

  16. November 1, 2007 at 9:19 am

    It’s a shame more voters don’t understand what an endorsement means. The average voter thinks that Bob Politico endorsed Mary Candidate because he thinks Mary will do a good job.

    Nothing could be further from the truth! Bob has probably endorsed Mary as payback for past favors, future promises, alliances with Mary’s friends, or fear of what will happen if he DOESN’T endorse her.

    It makes me sick.

    It’s really no wonder that some people don’t bother to vote and others won’t even register.

    I am on the Endorsement list for Sheriff Mike Carona. I still support him because he is presumed innocent until found guilty in case you have forgotten he has the same judicial rights as the rest of us.

    I am proud to know Mike Carona on a personal level and it is hard for me to believe that such a straight arrow can go so far astray from the path of justice.

    He has been a loyal friend to me and I shall remain a loyal friend to him.

    All of you casting judgement before the facts are heard should place yourselves in his shoes. You would want due process of the judicial system as it is your right as an American in this society.

    To think that Mike Carona should not be given the same access to the judicial system is ridiculous and you should be ashamed.

  18. Dan Chmielewski
    November 6, 2007 at 6:07 pm

    Who’s casting judgement? I sent a list of al those who endosed him when he first ran and all those who supported him last time around. No one is suggesting he not have the same access to the judicial system. We have nothing to be ashamed of.

    Sunlight is the best disinfectant; we want all the facts to come to light.

    Have you read the indictment? What you read Moxley’s coverage of the Sheriff’s alleged misdeeds? Have you ever asked him if any of it was true? Have you ever asked for an explanation?

    Journalism 101; your mother says she loves you; check it out.
