Now Hoa Doesn’t Know His Website Address!

No I am not joking. Somehow the stars have again aligned to make the First District Supervisor contest the craziest one around. And they say lightning doesn’t strike the same place twice.

A few weeks ago we had the mailing sent out by first District Supperviser Candidate Dina Nguyen to Vietnamese voters. The website address listed in the mailer was incorrect and directed visitors to a Gay-Asian Porn Site (Warning, ADULT ONLY material at this Link)

Now we have a web listing on the header of a recent mailer by Hoa Van Tran to Viet only voters, calling Supervisor Janet Nguyen a Communist, or Communist sympathizer.

The website listed in this mailer is (Warning, ADULT ONLY material at this link) a site which is registered in the name of Edgardo Reynoso, same name as Hoa’s campaign manager. WARNING, this site directs you to a gay Cholo porn site.

What is it with the campaigns in this race? They cannot get their website addresses correct in mailers, they cannot file their required disclosures on time or accurately, what next?

    Geez, how embarrasing. Do these campaign people ever proof read anything?!

    Maybe this is could be an example why it’s taking Hoa so long to file the ammendments, he’s still trying to spell check them.

    I’m waiting to see when Sean is going to come on here and take offense at the word “cholo” and demand that it read “Urban Latino Youth” Lovers instead.

    Obviously, these campaigns made a mistake with printing.

    Obviously someone who supports Janet or perhaps is involved in the campaign to elect Janet has taken advantage of this error in a very of disgusting way.

    Linking a adult porno site to a site that increases the chances that it may expose a child to this type of repulsive and disgusting site is plain wrong.

    Janet should make it clear if she is involved or not. Those involved need to keep their disgusting fantasy to themselves(or leave them in their own bedrooms)

    Thank God Edgardo Reynoso, Paul Lucas, and Kimchi Nguyen are working on the campaign. With such brilliant tacticians as these on board, we know where this campaign is going.

    Clearly somebody should have been doing some spell checking and proofing of the mailers before they were sent out by Hoa and Dina’s campaigns.

    However the linking of the misspelled web sites to gay porno sites was obviously done by somebody outside of their campaigns. The fact that it has happened to both opponents of Janet Nguyen leads me to believe that perhaps her folks may be involved.

    The fact that they linked them to gay porno sites is likely an act of homophobia by the party involved. I am shocked that Chris Prevatt isn’t angry that somebody is using homophobic tactics to smear political opponents.

    Yes shocked to find out there is gambling going on here.
    Your understanding of politics is naive to say the least.

  8. Just the facts

    Oh please……Maybe someone connected to the Dina and Hoa campaigns did this on purpose to make it appear as if Janet is homophobic. Who ever did this should be held accountable as it is wrong.

    Sorry Sean,

    No outrage from my side of the fence on this. I think it is freakin hillarious.


    Just because Janet Nguyen’s campaign, to this point, has been able to spell its website address correctly, does not indicate that she or her supporters are behind anything.

    I will say that I found the men on the sight linked by Hoa’s incorrect domain, far more attractive (thanks for the tip Edgardo). Though personally, if I had control of the domain I would have linked it to either an OC Gang Task Force website or maybe an FPPC complaint form.

    From Edgardo Reynoso to Edgardo Boboso

    I like Chris, I really do, but this post(and the Dina post with a similar result) is disgusting. I didn’t like the Register’s link either. This is over the top stuff that IMHO doesn’t belong on a first class web site like this. Based on the the campaign r.f. is being done to both Dina and Hoa’s campaign the clear inference(other than that Hoa and Dina’s campaign can’t spell)is that it comes from a Janet supporter with some computer skills who has a pretty good working knowledge of gay porn sites. It’s “shocking” that they are not coming forward to take credit for their “creativity.” Had the person done what Chris suggested(the link to the OC Gang Task Force or the FPPC complain form) I would have thought that was hilarious. Color me prudish but I found it offensive and encouraging to others who might try this.

    Somehow I suspect that if the roles were reversed and this had been done to Janet, Chris would not find this so “hilarious” and would without hesitation blame Edgardo and Hoa. Maybe poor Paul.

    All of that being said, I have yet to hear a good reason why the Hoa campaign has not amended its campaign report. Sean is right, amendments are not unusual, but a)this is not rocket science and b) since Kindee Durkee is preparing the report and knowing how competent she is, I must assume that she is simply waiting on the Hoa campaign to get her the requested information. Every day there is a delay in getting the report amended it fuels suspicion that there is something to hide and they are trying to wait until after the June election to do the amendment.

    There is another thing for the Hoa people to consider. There are Democrats who were not happy the Democratic Party endorsed Hoa. The refusal to date to amend the reports has been used by these individuals as a reason to revoke the DPOC’s endorsement. I understand that this is on the DPOC’s agenda for their meeting Monday night. I would also assume that the DPOC sent a timely written notice to Hoa that they were taking up a resolution to reconsider Hoa’s endorsement . A phone call in addition to the written notice would have been good form. I’m not sure in the many years I’ve followed the DPOC that failure to file amended reports has been a criteria used to support a withdrawl of a previous endorsement but there’s always a first. I suspect that the charge will be that an accurate amendement would reveal the source of some of the contributions was Van Tran or some fellow travelers. A withdrawl of the endorsement could be very embarassing for Hoa and might be the subject of a mailer sent to District Democrats. So rather than pull into the safe harbor of an amended report, Hoa seems hell bent in putting shells into the shotguns being brought Monday night.

    I respectfully disagree on the matter of the website being printed incorrectly and referred to a porn website should be posted on this site. It is factual information, and I posted it in both cases. If this happened to Janet Nguyen, I would do the same.

    On the matter of amended returns. Kinde Durkee is no longer affiliated with the campaign. The failure to report expenditures documented in the campaign check register is blatant disregard of the regulations. I’m tired of hearing “we wll file amended reports if any are needed” to be big fish that got away story told by my grandpa. I will believe it when I see it.

    I like Hoa and would have loved to vote for him…. BUT the man is simply not ready. His very boring website, his writing in short choppy sentences, his cheap black and white mailer with the main focus of attacking his opponents, and the fact that he does not answer his email tell me that he is not someone I want. Believe me, I would love to see Janet defeated, but Hoa would not be the man.
