Hoa Van Tran Campaign Linked to Gang Members

I a fresh story on the OC Register’s main page reporters Tony Saavedra and Peggy Lowe have a story about Hoa Van Tran campaign volunteers having been arrested for Gang related activity. Now this isn’t the frst we’ve heard of this but, if this story isn’t enough to make the Democratic Party of Orange County want to run away from their endorsement of Hoa at their meeiting tonight I don’t know what will.

    I hate to say this, but I think we’re just beating a dead horse at this point. I think we all know now that Hoa Van Tran’s in deep s**t… So do we need any more reminders of this? This whole 1st Supe race has gotten so out of hand that I’m ready to vomit… Like, right now!

    Pull your head out of the sand. This is front page news in the OCRegister. This is not me beating a dead horse. Good or bad, this is poitical news and TheLiberalOC.com is political blog.

    Of course, you have every right to cover whatever you want. And if you want to keep talking about how f***ed up Hoa’s campaign is, so be it. I just realized tonight that the only way left I can make an impact is to start practicing what I preach. So starting tomorrow, I’ll just stop paying attention to this entire mess. This whole 1st Supe race is already dead to me, so I might as well just let it RIP. 😉

    Boy I bet Sal Tinajero regrets letting Hoa use his picture in a mailer…

    Hoa can’t fire Edgardo because Hoa is not the boss.

    All right, this is way to hinky to ignore and he didn’t turn in his repotrs by the deadline.

    Something is smelling quite rotten here.

    Not surprised. Hoa is not Tan Nguyen. He didn’t do anything really, like, BAD or WRONG or MALUM PER SE. He’s just a candidate with no chance of garnering any meaningful percentage of the vote, BUT he is the ONLY Democrat in the race and no county committee would want to be seen as destroying his candidacy. Best let him do it on his own terms. Or, rather, on the terms of whoever tells him what to do and says when he can talk and to whom.

    Hmmm- put this comment in the wrong entry. It was supposed to be a comment to the “keeps DPOC endorsement” entry.

    What do you expect from a campaign that hires Edgardo? Hint: If Edgardo is involved, RUN the other direction.
