HT to Red County on this one.Ã‚Â
With those Trung Nguyen appeals winding down, the Voldemort of the OC Conservative Right Mike Schroeder has a new target; he’s suing Huntington Beach Mayor Debbie Cook, a Democratic challenger to Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, on the grounds that Cook used her title as “Mayor” in her Candidate ballot description.Ã‚Â
Schroeder (I refuse to call him “Darth Schroeder, OK Chris, because Vader ultimately found redemption) is using the argument that Cook was not directly elected Mayor by HB voters and should instead use Council Member, Huntington Beach.Ã‚Â Meanwhile, Neil Blais and Jeff Miller in the 71st Assembly raceÃ‚Â areÃ‚Â both using the title, Mayor, in their ballot designations.Ã‚Â I wonder is Christina Shea is using “Former Mayor of Irvine” in her Ballot Designation.
So what does this say exactly?Ã‚Â They’re scared.Ã‚Â
more after the jump.
Debbie Cook is a credible candidate who will hold Dana accountable to his record.Ã‚Â You know, how Dana told a bunch of peace activists that he hopes their families are the ones killed in the next terrorist attack; the Dana who believes Dinosaur Flatulence is responsible for Global Warming, the Dana who called convicted and disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff a dear close friend.Ã‚Â
And with Debbie running on a platform of change with a competent record as an HB council member, and either Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton slotted to be the next occupant at 1600 Penn. Ave, Dana and Schroeder have to be worried about long coattails.
And before the right wingers here come over to tell me how full if it I am, please be prepared to answer one simple question.Ã‚Â If Dana is such a shoo-in, why bother to challenge Debbie’s ballot designation?
