I just about spit coffee all over my keyboard Wednesday morning when I opened up this email from Assemblyman Van Tran.
It seems that Conservative/Republican Van Tran is either getting very bold or very desperate in his bid to unseat Orange County’s favorite Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez.Â Sending an email to the Orange County Drinking Liberally email address touting his campaign to unseat the only Democrat ( and somewhat Liberal) member of the OC Congressional delegation is just too funny.
Iâ€™m running for Congress because in too many areas, business-as-usual politics has prevented us from addressing the important challenges facing our nation.
In these tough economic times, we need a steady, articulate voice against the “pork” and over-spending of government.
Every dollar irresponsibly spent by Congress is a dollar diverted from pressing priorities like creating jobs, lowering tax burdens on working Americans, supporting those fighting overseas, making good on our promises to senior citizens, and paying down the national debt.
Instead of controlling runaway spending, Congress is bailing out big corporations and breaking ethics laws. Letâ€™s bring character and integrity back to Congress and protect our childrenâ€™s future from todayâ€™s overspending.
ASSEMBLYMAN VAN TRAN
2010 Candidate for Congress – 47th District
Breaking ethics laws? Tough words from a guy who cannot even file his campaign finance reports correctly.
Maybe he thoughtÂ OrangeCounty@DrinkingLiberally.orgÂ Â is the new email address for his protege and notable liberal drinker Westminster City Council Member Andy Quach. At any rate, here is his entire email appeal.
Poor Van, he just can’t seem to figure out who his supporters are. One thing for sure, he isn’t going to find any of them at the “Original” Orange County Drinking Liberallygathering on Thursday nights at Memphis at the Santora in the Santa Ana Artist’s Village, in the heart of Loretta’s 47th Congressional District.
