Irvine, CA — With just days left before the November general election, the special interest and conservative funded Super PAC, California Homeowners Association PAC, has committed $49,721.05 in negative attack mailers against Farrah N. Khan’s candidacy for Irvine City Council. The Super PAC has no campaign finance contribution limits, unlike candidates for Irvine City Council who can only accept a maximum of $470 in individual contributions. According to public records from the California Secretary of State’s Office, the California Homeowners Association PAC has recently taken contributions from the following entities:

  • $250,000 from “Friends of the Great Park PAC”
  • $20,000 from the “California Apartment Association PAC”
  • $200,000 from “Friends of the Great Park PAC”
  • $50,000 from Irvine based “WWP Westside Gateway Owner”
  • $49,000 from Irvine based “Starpoint Ventures”
  • $8,000 from Mimi Walters for Congress Campaign
  • $5,000 from Pat Bates for Senate Campaign

The largest donor, Friends of the Great Park PAC, has taken tens of thousands of dollars in contributions from Orange County developers and contractors, like Starpoint Ventures, Villa San Clemente LLC, General Parters Inc, Heritage Fields El Toro LLC and Lyon Management Group among dozens of other entities.

“It’s so disappointing to see Orange County developers and right wing conservatives trying to make a desperate last minute attempt to buy this election,” said Farrah N. Khan. “This SuperPac is exploiting the Citizen’s United Supreme Court loop hole by depriving the City Council from having a real conversation about traffic congestion, overcrowding in our local schools, and how unchecked development growth is reducing our quality of life and hurting our children.”

Farrah N. Khan is a leading candidate for the Irvine City Council election on the November 8, 2016 General Election Ballot.

Mrs. Khan is the Executive Director of the Newport Irvine Mesa Interfaith Council, former Irvine Community Services Commissioner, retired biotechnology executive, and small business owner in Irvine.

She has been endorsed by Former Irvine Mayor Sukhee Kang, State Controller Betty Yee, Progressive Change Campaign Committee’s (PCCC) 2016 Power List, Democratic Party of Orange County and the California Democratic Party.

    Beth Krom has endorsed Fox and Farivar. No Democrat in Irvine cares what Diamond has to say.

      I like Farrah, but I am uncomfortable with her denials about the poetry reading at UCI when a third party begs to differ. I also think she’s playing footsie with FivePoint on the Veterans Cemetery where her answers are evasive. I’m guessing Diamond is high on her because perhaps his step-daughter is her treasurer.

    Dan, Farrah was invited to the Uncultivated Rabbits meeting – I know because I was standing to her left. The rest of your comments are even more groundless. Please stop spreading lies.
    Best, Callum

      I like my rabbit animated or roasted with an Apricot glaze

    I like my humans crunchy with an intersectional raddish puree. Let the salt rain.

    Sukhee Kang has endorsed every Democrat in Irvine (Khan, Farivar, Ali and Fox). That’s four endorsements for two spots. That’s not much of an endorsement.

    Some endorsements were more forced than others… Clean campaigning would not describe some factions of the Democratic party, bottom to top of the ticket.

    So let me understand this – A guy who neither lives, votes or really understands Irvine politics is encouraging, better put, telling people how to vote. By this I mean the three hundred and thirty pound Brea gladfly, Gregory A. Diamond.

    Anyone who has spent 15 seconds in Orange County democratic politics in the past few years knows if “Crazy Greg” says “Bud”, order a “Miller”, if “Crazy Greg” says “right”, go “left.

    So to hear this blowhard weighing in, makes me think, he has more time on his hands than most prisoners in San Quentin, or his “blog” posts are considered “value added services” by his kids political services company.

    Greg fancies himself as EXACTLY what he pretends to despise.

    Kind of a Dave Gillard, who makes no money and has no job.

    Thank you for explaining big developers contribute large amounts to Dave Gilliard’s California Homeowners Association. Dave’s anti-Khan flier arrived in the mailbox today. Calls Ms. Kahn a radical muslim (hate speech, maybe?). Looks like a private investigator operation worked on it. Must have cost a fortune.

    I received the mailer today as well. It’s really disappointing to me to see this kind of negative campaigning in Irvine because we are all neighbors. Walters’ contribution to it has made me more sure about supporting Ron Varasteh.
