Lorri Galloway Spent No Time Lingering: Leaves 4th District Before Midterm

There is an incredible amount of drama that happened in this race, none of it dull, all of it salacious and not worthy of the office which these individuals were seeking. Sadly, however, this is not the post in which those happenings will be dispensed. This is merely a post reflecting on Lorri Galloway’s loss, and her shiny new record at the Registrar of Voters Office, indicating that she re-registered to vote in her REAL home, in the 3rd Supervisor District, in the Anaheim Hills community before the Midterm Election. Clearly she wanted to waste NO time in returning to her home in the hills.The home which we all knew she had, and intended to live in after the election, no matter the outcome, and no matter what she, or her stooge at theliberaloc.com said about it.

At Arrow 1: You’ll notice that she uses the name Lorraine. It’s a name she didn’t use on previous records at the registrar, or ever used publicly for that matter. It’s a form of her name which I first read on a blog at FFFF, the blog-master there, Tony Bushala revealed it with glee, because under it he found disturbing records of her horrific treatment of her elderly Aunt in another county before she graced us with her presence here in Orange County. Although, perhaps I’m reading too much into it. It’s just a name after all… right?

Arrow 2: She truly, no joke, looks great for being 57.

Arrow 3: The date indicates that she moved back, and re-registered just in time to not have to read the name of the people who beat her in the race for 4th District Supervisor on her ballot. I wonder who she would have voted for, Harry or Shawn?

Arrow 4: Her old fake address that was provided by a one of her political supporters, Bill Taormina.(click this link to see just how close this match made in heaven is) Which she, at most, camped out at, and at which Dan C oafishly toured and subsequently described on LOC.com as clearly being her home. Not that he had any credibility to begin with, but seriously… that was just sad.

    Good post. We all know that she did not give up her large home in Anaheim Hills to live on Center Street. Wonder when someone will ever get the chance to do a forensic audit of her friends & family charity?

  2. December 6, 2010 at 8:38 pm

    Steve — I hate to break it to you, but since you never set foot in her Center Street home, I’d hardly call it camping out.

    It has been my position all along that moving into a district to run for higher office representing a number of people you already represent is no great political faux pas. Heck, I didn’t care that Steven Choi had done the same thing in Irvine.

    If you’re going to use the phrase “oafishly,” I apply it to this post. Galloway wasn’t on the ballot in November. It’s not about news value for you here Steve; it’s about your personal dislike for someone who beat you in 2008 when you thought you had a chance of getting elected to the Anaheim City Council before you could shave.

      I don’t understand where Dan C has any room to complain about news value. Does a post about the anniversary of gastric bypass have news value? How about the retiring of a local school superintendent?
      Face it, this blog has gone downhill since the Lawson days. Steve’s rare posts are the only ones that draw comments anymore.
      And, how did that childish lawsuit turn out for you guys?

        December 9, 2010 at 10:36 am

        Actually, it’s Lori Galloway posts that draw comments, not Steve’s.

        And thanks for asking about the lawsuit; there are two actually. There’s one against the blog where we got a $17,000 judgment and another against Art personally which has a scheduling conference with the judge later this month. Judge Carter says it’s the most interesting case on his docket and has also indicated the case against Art personally was much stronger than the case against the blog.

        And we spoke with Mike a few weeks ago; he fully supports our efforts in the lawsuit.

        As far as the blog going downhill, well, I disgaree. The Orange County Press Club named us the best political blog in OC this past year and we got a second place for commentary.

      ” Heck, I didn’t care that Steven Choi had done the same thing in Irvine.”

      Then answer this question. Why were you stalking Choi in the Woodbury neighborhood during the primary and dedicated blog posts to your stalking activities…er…I meant his residency? The action near your Santa Ana “office” too boring for you?

      I’m sure Google can bring up these blogs if you want say that we are lying…

      • December 10, 2010 at 10:31 am

        You sound a lot like Art Pedroza or Sean Mill; heck Tony Bushala knocked on Harry Sidhu’s Lucky Way home door and that was praised as investigative reporting.

        The Choi story was a response to the carpetbagging criticisms of both Sidhu and Galloway; blogs that hated both of them were supportive of Choi who did the same thing.

        I drove by Choi’s house once and stayed on a public sidewalk at his Woodbridge condo. That’s not stalking. That’s reporting.

          Not any of the aforementioned, Bypass Dan. If it fulfills some sort of sick role play fetish for you, I can be anyone of the persons that you mentioned. I suppose since you have dedicated your life to taking shortcuts (i.e. opting for bypass surgery over actually losing weight through portion control, diet and exercise), you can call it what you want. You call it reporting? I’ve seen better written reports from my elementary aged child.

          You can do your searches and guesses about who I am and you will never find the answer. However, I will give you a hint. The answer is in the screen name.

          Think of the scramble board on “Soul Train.”

    I understand that the timing of this post seems to be a little off, let me explain. I mentioned this scoop to Chris about 2 weeks before the election, and he requested, as Editor, for me not to run it until after the election. I didn’t really care when it ran, one way or another… it’s just an intrigue piece anyway, so it’s been typed up and ready to go since.

    Wow. I have to say it, she looks great for 57. Hell she looks great for 47. That said, Dan, you forget that I have friends on all sides of her, she was camping out, nearly never there. Kind of like people in her shelters.

    • December 7, 2010 at 12:29 pm

      And Cynthia, you forget, I was inside her home on Center Street. It’s journalistically inaccurate to describe that well-decorated home as “camping out.” If she wasn’t there a lot, she works, she was running for office and was active an an Anaheim City Council member.

      This obsession with carpetbagging as a political sin is ridiculus.

        You might characterize the “obsession with carpetbagging” as “ridiculous,” Dan, but the voters don’t.
        That’s why carpetbaggers tend to lose around here.

        • December 8, 2010 at 12:15 pm

          That’s why you get the government you deserve. Let’s eliminate effective candidates because they move into a district to represent people they already represent in another office.

        • December 10, 2010 at 10:25 am

          some reading comprehension problems with the post Fus? Scroll to the end where we say so what? We didn’t care that Choi had carpetbagged and still don’t.

            December 10, 2010 at 5:28 pm

            If you really didn’t care, why did you spend time stalking him in Woodbury? The energy that you put into “investigating”/stalking Choi (and Amante for that matter) should have been spent on Don Wagner, who is a hell of a lot scarier than that lightweight Choi.

            Obviously you’re the one that has the reading comprehension problem or selective memory. You can’t remember what lie you told from one minute to the next. I suppose that what you teach the Irvine kids in the youth sports that you are involved in. Which explains why a lot of the kids in Irvine walk around with a sense of entitlement. Irvine was once a paradise before the likes of you moved in during the 90s and turned into a gentrified hell.

            But taking shortcuts is your forte. I mean, why stop at telling the truth? If memory serves me correct, you made excuses about not finding the time to exercise prior to making the decision to get gastric bypass. Want me to pull up the post? How about harassing someone at work? I have evidence too.

            Like I said, the riddle behind my real identity is within the letters of the screen name. Fus isn’t my name, but nice try. I must have underestimated your capacity to think outside of the box and being creative. But being an ignorant, blowhard partisan hack explains why you can’t see the world beyond the blinders that have in front of your eyes. I take it you never were good at the “Soul Train” scramble.

            But you’ll say, “I have your IP address.” Good, Whoopee-de-doo!

            If you think I am kenlaysnotdead, you would be sadly mistaken. Nor am I Art Pedroza or Sean Mill. (Besides, who the hell are those guys that you speak of anyway?) You don’t know me…but I know who you are and I will be exposing you for the fraud that you are. I know more than you think about you , the politicos in Irvine and the town you live in.

      Cynthia — click the link and skip ahead to the 1:27 mark and try not to well up when the young lady who resided at Eli Home for more than a year tells her story.

      Lori and her husband slept at that home and lived there in every sense of the word.
      As far as neighbors go, I have some I never see. Does it mean they aren’t sleeping there? No, it means I don’t see them when I’m out.

    Few believed she was serious about the move from the hills to the flatlands. Her quick retreat back into the hills confirms the suspicions.

  6. December 7, 2010 at 12:27 pm

    4 months after the primary isn’t quick

  7. December 7, 2010 at 12:59 pm


    I take issue with your characterization of Dan as a stooge. It is fine to disagree, but calling Dan a stooge is unwarranted and unreasonable.

    Like it or not, Lorri Galloway met the legal requirements for residency. While it is appropriate to point out that she had moved into the district to run for Supervisor which no one, not even Dan, disputes, as a Council member for Anaheim she did represent the 40% of the district that was within the borders of Anaheim.

    You have made a reasonable point that her departure, not unexpected, from the 4th District residence confirms she was not planning to stay if she lost the primary. If anyone has actual evidence to prove she did not meet the residency requirements they should come forward, either publicly, or to the DA.

    Maybe we should require as a condition of candidacy that a person wear a GPS tracking device? That would of course resolve the debate, albeit at the expense of privacy.

    As a candidate, would you mind if your every move, and where you spend the night, where you go during the day, was recorded and available for public inspection? Should someone have to give up that level of personal privacy to run for office? I don’t think so, but if you want to settle these matters in the future, this is about the only way to accomplish what you seek.

    December 7, 2010 at 5:08 pm

    Steve – get a life.

    Galloway didn’t win in June and decided to move to Anaheim Hills — so what. Had she been elected as an Orange County Supervisor she would have been a champion for social and liberal causes; as she is in Anaheim. That didn’t happen, so as an Anaheim Councilmember she can live where ever she pleases in Anaheim.

    I know Lorri Galloway; her strength is serving others, not politics — elected officials like her are rare. The woman has been serving and protecting our communities most vulnerable (abused children and mothers desperately looking to protect their children) for almost 30 years.

    I spoke with her and asked her why she was willing to move into the 4th to run. Her answer was straight forward and sincere; “it is the County that has the responsibility to ensure those with the greatest need are protected”. She went on to tell me how she believes that during these tough economic times it is the poor, the elderly, and children that are at greatest risk of being further marginalized. Simply, she believes that she has a responsibility to give all she can to better the lives of those in need. I guess even if it meant she had to “camp out” in central Anaheim.

    She knew she was going to get beat up for moving into the district; but I think she was correct in doing so. None of the other candidates that were running for OC Sup in the 4th had her credentials or passion when it comes to liberal and altruistic causes.

    So Steve, why don’t you save your sophomoric rants for candidates that paint themselves Red and dump on liberals. Or perhaps you should stick to what suits you best; crayons and Sponge Bob Square Pants.

    • Publius
      December 7, 2010 at 7:08 pm

      None of the other candidates had Lorri’s credentials or passion for liberal causes?
      Did you forget that La Habra Councilwoman (a lifelong resident of the District, by the way) was running in that race? Or do you discount the credentials, passion, and altruism of the founder of Rosie’s Garage?
      Can you point to any social or liberal cause that Lorri has championed in Anaheim, apart from the the “charity” that keeps her own family solvent?

      • December 8, 2010 at 10:59 am

        Your La Habra canddiate wasn’t electable. Her insistance on staying in the race and Art Brown jumping in cost us a seat we should have won.

        • Kevin
          December 8, 2010 at 12:49 pm

          To slightly reorient your argument: Art Brown spent essentially nothing on this race, yet ended it virtually tied with the far-better-backed Galloway. Imagine what he could have done if Galloway had dropped out and her resources had been funneled to him!

          Galloway had some major flaws as a candidate, and no amount of “she would have gotten away with it, if it weren’t for you meddling kids!” excuses and after-the-fact hagiography is going to change that.

          • December 8, 2010 at 5:46 pm

            Sorry — Lorri was the only endorsed Dem in the race; Take out the other two and add their votes and she’s in the Supervisor’s seat.

              December 8, 2010 at 6:09 pm

              Dan, you should probably stop spreading that falsehood. Lorri Galloway was denied an endorsement from the OC Democratic Party. Believe me, I’d know.

            • December 8, 2010 at 8:09 pm

              She had a Labor endorsement Steve

              December 9, 2010 at 8:31 am

              Ahem — you forget that Art Brown was endorsed by the Fraternal Order of Real Bearded Santas, which, by your extremely plastic standards, makes him an endorsed Dem as well! Give him Galloway and Espinoza’s votes, and WHAM! — straight to Santa Ana!

    I’m wondering why this is limited to Galloway; did we check up on Harry Sidhu? Or Steven Choi? I’m sure they have moved back to their “old” homes and so what really?

    • Kevin
      December 8, 2010 at 12:56 pm

      I’m wondering why this is limited to Galloway

      Possibly because Sidhu and Choi didn’t receive regular tonguebaths on this site up until the election?

      Not to mention that Sidhu’s residency was such a transparent sham that nobody was surprised to see it melt away after the election. In contrast, Galloway was trying to cultivate a veneer of authenticity, nattering away about her “beautiful historic home” as if she had some actual connection to the neighborhood …

      • Dan Chmielewski
        December 9, 2010 at 11:34 am

        Both my wife and Lori’s husband might object to the term tongue bath. Steven Choi sent a ton of communication out to Irvine voters in Woodbridge to say he was a new neighbor. The difference — folder chairs versus actual furniture

  11. December 8, 2010 at 5:42 pm

    Hate to break it to you, it wasn’t veneer. I love how people who never set foot in her Center Street home just can’t take my word for it. The place was immaculatly decorated with photos, personal items…it was a home not a house. The home was beautiful and is in a historic neighborhhod. I loved the backyard and the kitchen was fantastic.

      • December 9, 2010 at 2:58 pm

          December 10, 2010 at 10:39 am

          So there is a direct correlation between having a political consulting gig and telling the truth? If that was the case, then everything out of Karl Rove’s mouth might as well be equated with the Holy Scriptures.

          No one takes what you say seriously because you make pathetic apologies for candidates that you favor. Larry Agran and Lorri Galloway are two obvious examples. Besides, you don’t live in Anaheim so why do you care? You sucking up to the Agran machine/Great Park board (how’s that concrete “green” park working for you?) I can understand since you live in the Canyon View area of Northwood. But go ahead and tell us how many “awards” you won because their rating criteria is probably about as stringent as the same people who say that Taco Bell is the best Mexican restaurant in OC.

    It was an immaculately decorated house, yes. So is a model home being shown for new subdivision sales. Dan, just because she was at the house when you were there does not mean she stayed there. I have friends on both sides and across the street, and i can tell you she nearly never slept there. She showed up when people were coming and then bailed again. Lights were on a timer, same with the other house she first moved into on Lincoln, in fact she left the timers behind so lights would go on and off in a house that was totally empty.

    She also was not endorsed by the Party. As far as her friends and family charity, the neighbors showed up at a recent County Supe meeting, putting the lie to the idea that anyone lives in the Anaheim Hills shelter and asking the Supes to not approve her grant for half a million dollars. An investigation has been called for. Also, there is an FBI investigation into a developer that SERIOUSLY helped her with major independent expenditures for her campaign (remember the Elm Street Commons scam?) as well as donations to the Eli Home. While the public has been unable to make her open her books on that “charity”, the FBI sure can do it. Galloway’s teflon coating is wearing off, especially with big brother Curt gone. Good riddance to her. Dan you have been suckered.

  13. Dan Chmielewski
    December 8, 2010 at 10:42 pm

    She had the support of labor unions in the race Cynthia. Your argument about friends in the neighborhood really holds little water since I have been in the house. It was lived in. Hate to break it to you. The FBI is investigating a supporter of hers? Wow let’s lock her up now. Sorry but she met every criteria for being a legal candidate for office. End of story

    Dan and Chris, are you two really not going to comment on the censoring and subsequent removal of one of your bloggers because of a blog he posted regarding your lawsuit?

    I echo the sentiment Publius expressed. His blogs were, by far, the most interesting I ever read on here. If the comments on his facebook are any indicator, Orangejuiceblog is extremely eager to acquire your former talent, and, I suspect, a significant portion of your readership.
    I’d also like to note, that I although you are entirely UNdeserving of it, Perez has not said an adverse thing about either of you, either on his facebook, his new site (which you removed any reference from on his previous posts), or on the other blogs that picked up this disgusting exercise in censorship. His graceful departure speaks volumes.

    • December 13, 2010 at 8:40 pm


      I am not going to debate the finer points of blog management with you, or anyone else for that matter, in a public forum. But to put it simply, Steve Perez’s post was itself, what it he attributed to our lawsuit against Orange Juice Blog, childish. Childish, uninformed, inaccurate, and most importantly, a topic which he and the rest of the blog team have been told to refrain from posting about until the pending litigation was completed.

      The lawsuit is still pending regarding Art Pedroza as an individual defendant. Therefore, the topic was not appropriate for the blog at this time. Rather than check with me, he chose to run with it anyway. Given the context of his action, my response was appropriate. And as far as censorship goes, he crossposted his childish commentary on his own blog at the same time he posted it here. It has received more than enough exposure than it warrants with its posting there.
