Reynoso Restraining Order EXTENDED.

Today at 9:00 AM Edgardo Reynoso, Manager for the Hoa Van Tran Campaign faceD Commissioner Jane Myers regarding the request for a restraining order by a former staffer for campaign.

Reynoso has publicly stated that the alleged incident did not involve him as he was in the campaign office on the phone at the time. The car that the former staffer alleges Reynoso was driving happens to match the make and model of the Champagne Lexus RX 300 that Phu Do Nguyen, Hoa Van Tran’s boss drives. Nguyen has claimed before the Democratic Party Central Committee that his car was in the shop at the time.

Convenient alibis all around.

Commissioner Myers determined there was ample reason to continue the TRO and extended it to June 23 to allow the plaintiff more time to secure the services of an attorney. Commissioner Myers extended longer than Edgardo wanted, because his attorney was going on vacation. Edgardo’s attorney was pushing for a date before her vacation.

Jubal from Red County/OC Blog was there and has a more detailed report HERE. Edgardo, his attorney from Phu Do Nguyen’s firm, Hoa Van Tran, KimChi Nguyen on the Reynoso side. Misha Houser, the plaintiff’s family, and another friend on her side.

No other decision today. Both Misha and the plaintiff were served as defendants in defamation suit from Reynoso.

    ah, the double-edge sword of discovery. Good luck with the suit.

    And plus I heard, Hoa Van Tran is STILL not supervisor! And Paul Lucas is still a CLUTZ! LOL

    Time to leave Paul alone Vern. He has a date with voters in November that will be the true measure of how he has conducted himself.

    Why should we lay off of Lucas now, Dan? It’s not like he’s apologized for his personal attacks on people. And he continues to troll around Democratic circles for info to feed back to his GOP buddies. Too bad so many caught on that he was a mole long ago and started to give him bad info for Tran, Schroeder, and company.

    Where’s Sean Mill?

    Like I said; let’s lay off Paul. It serves no purpose. And voters in Garden Grove will decide his fate.

    Matt — tell you what, you can fairly weigh in on Sean Mill’s absence from the blog commentary when you and Mr. Fleischman actually weigh in with your own commentary (or lack thereof) in regards to our disgraced, indicted and secret-tape-recording-system-with-electronics-to-prevent-folks-who-are-wearing-a-wire-in-my-office-from-recording-what-I-say Mike Carona.

    I’m not changing the subject; just noting you are in no position to gloat.

    The idea Sean was defending is that Democrats should support Democratic candidates; his mistake, in my opinion, was believe what Edgardo had to sell. And we all make mistakes.

    Actually my sarcasm slipped off the edge of my keyboard or something this time. I was more coming from “God, aren’t you central-OC folks sick of this Hoa-gate/Lucas-gate stuff yet?” OK I guess I am a little curious about what ends up happening to El Reynoso. I was in Theo Lacy once, I wonder what barracks he’ll end up in. He should have no problem “riding” with the Southsiders there, probably half of them know him. He’ll probably end up as “house mouse” or “shot-caller,” with his leadership skills. Pues, firme!

    Would you like some apples with those oranges?

    Sean has been the omnipresent defender of all things Edgardo/Hoa, and scourge of all who criticize them.

    So where is he now?

  10. I don't think so...
    June 6, 2008 at 8:36 pm

    Sorry Dan. I have to agree with the Starbucks person. Paul has attacked me personally and spread lies about me for things I had nothing to do with. Paul deserves everything he gets until he apologizes to those he lied about and renounces his ties to Dina. Paul should not be rewarded for his bad behavior. That is not what I call personal responsibility.

  11. June 6, 2008 at 8:54 pm

    Not to pick a fight with Sean Dan, but Jubal does have a point.

    Its kinda hard to apologize to an anonymous bloger with no bill og particulars.

    Starbucks -if you going to make the claim, then write your name. Otherwise there is no there, there.

    Matt – i knew you’d dodge the question. All I am saying is if you want to call Sean out on this, then you had better make your stand on Carona. Its a Glass Houses argument and you are in no position to throw stones.

    Having known Paul Lucas for many years, I have noticed a significant change in his demeanor and attitude toward the Van Tran Machine in 08.
    For Paul in 06 all he would say was, Trannie this and Trannie that. Now not a peep about that from Paul

    1st things first,

    Ask Paul to publicly denounce Van Tran (who wants to run against Loretta in next cycle) Paul wont do it. I would like to see Paul talk crap about Van the way he did just two years ago.

    First he filed for Supervisor March 6, 2008. It is a well known fact that Dina and Van wanted to get a white guy and a Latino guy in that race to mess with Janet. Paul was the white guy. He backed out at the last minute but that was clue #1

    Clue #2
    Paul signed a letter that was passed out at the OCGOP central committee meeting. The letter was designed to hurt Janet’s chances of getting the GOP endorsement. Van Tran’s people passed out the letter.

    Clue #3

    Paul has threatend to sue me and has harassed anyone that is aware and is discussing his transgressions.

    Clue #4

    Many central county insiders have distanced themselves from Paul and his Trannieism. These are the same folks who in the past who have helped him get jobs, raise money for his campaigns, helped with campaign materials etc.
    But now we won’t touch him with a ten foot pool because we are disappointed with his actions and his bad judgment. And his Trannieism

    So there is a there there. I would not question your knowledge / judgment regarding Irvine politics, why would you question ours?
    We need some help from the Dems in the rest of the county. We have been fighting the good fight against Van Tran for awhile and you all think you know better. Bunk.

    Perhaps I haven’t been clear. How much more should we rehash Paul Lucas? Isn’t it enough to say the voters will pass judgement on Paul in November like they did with Hoa Van Tran?

  17. June 7, 2008 at 2:22 pm

    Paul? There’s a bill of particulars. What do you say? None of your old friends want to believe you’ve become a Trannie.

    First, what do you have to say (in public, here) about the Oil Spill Known As Van Thai Tran?

  18. I don't think so...
    June 7, 2008 at 4:28 pm

    Rebecca. Paul knows who he has lied about and attacked. If he hasn’t apologized to those he knows he has done wrong, then there is no point. I appreciate that you are loyal to Paul, but it is too bad he doesn’t have request for the rest of the people he has hurt. If he wants to be successful in November, he must right the wrongs and take responsibilty for what he did.

  19. June 7, 2008 at 5:28 pm

    I don’t think so,

    Do you think you could stay on the topic of this post. Which quite frankly, has NOTHING to do with Paul Lucas.

    Vern brought it up Chris

    And keep sending us those veiled threats edgardo. None of them will see the light of day

  21. June 8, 2008 at 7:04 pm

    Theo – How will Reynoso end up incarcerated? What crime?
