Andy Quach DUI Accident Anniversary 8-02-2009

Andy "Smiley" Quach

One year ago today Westminster City Councilman Andy Quach smashed his $100K Mercedes into a wall on McFadden Avenue in Westminster. Thus launched the blooming of a story that we called QuachGate. Andy Quach was apparently out with friends drinking whiskey at a restaurant that doesn’t serve whiskey. He hopped in his car to drive home and on his way clipped another car and collided with a telephone pole and block wall, knocking out power for about 300 of his Westminster constituents.

While stumbling out of his car, he dialed up his good buddy Assemblyman Van Tran, and a few minutes later Tran arrives on the scene. That led to Assemblyman Tran claiming to the police officers on the scene that he was Andy’s attorney and then proceeded to try to interfere with their field sobriety check. That almost got Assemblyman Tran tossed in jail.

Asm. Van Tran

On the anniversary of this event, I have to wonder if the voters will remember these antics in November. Councilman Quach is running for reelection to the City Council and Assemblyman Tran is challenging Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez for her Congressional seat in the 47th district.

Do the voters really want to reward Councilman Quach for his lawless and drunken behavior? Do the voters really want to elect to Congress Van Tran; a man willing to disrupt a police investigation of a DUI accident?

I think not.

    A couple days ago I posted a comment about how I think Andy Quach looks like a chihuahua in the above picture. Why did you not allow readers to see my comment Chris? Come on, I have love for you, I follow your stories, why don’t you have love for me? Does my opinion not matter? I think he looks like a chihuahua and I know you think he looks like a chihuahua and I know that you know that many people think he also looks like a chihuahua.

      Bob, The comment you left a couple of days ago also included other comments that Andy looking like a chihuahua. Those portions violated our terms of use. Whil I may or may not agree with your assessment of Andy’s appearance, comments with substance tend to be approved more readily than those without.
