Chema and Newgent Fail Domain Name Test in Irvine



Republicans Dale Cheema, who is a candidate for Irvine City Council, and Mark Newgent a candidate for the Irvine Unified School bard, have both failed a basic test of running for office in the Internet age — both did not protect their own names from being hijacked by political operatives.

If you go to or, you will discover websites aimed at taking both candidates down before election day.  The same website own also took posesson of a domain address intending to hurt Mary Ann Gadio, but its not one a voter would find easily.

What this says is Cheema is a threat to Republican candidates running for Irvine City Council, and in Newgent’s case, he’s a threat to Betty Carroll, an NPP who has the backing of Irvine’s Republican establishment.  Newgent recently had his support withdrawn from the OC GOP, which found video’s he’s posted on social media to be not to the party’s liking.

Its a hard lesson to learn, but if you’re even thinking about running for office, lock up for name for the website well before you decide.

    I salute Newgent and Cheema for bipartisanship. I salute Newgent for his service. Newgent is much needed on the School Board.

      They aren’t bipartisan. They are both Republicans.

      Thank you for your support. I find the website laughable. They took my stand up comedy routine and presented it as real…

      I am an actor/performer/comedian hobbyist and if you read the site and actually compare them to thousands of videos I made in the process of taking acting/comedy classes and performing live you will see. As a matter of fact I was in a TV show in this past September. I was told it should be on netflix!!!

      I will continue to act and do stand up comedy after the election. I think the people that made this site realized I am a performer in the process of smearing me and thats we didn’t see any negative mailers on me.

      Maybe these people that did this negative attack don’t understand or support art? I fully support the arts in schools as drama club/acting in high school really helped me. I support creativity and allowing people to be silly and explore different personas as performers.

      If you would like to read about my real life character feel free to review my military records. I proudly released high level awards including one for heroic achievement and recognized by the US Ambassador to Indonesia on my website at and in my Facebook.

    If there’s anything bipartisan about Dale Cheema, it’s that he has paid for ugly, mudslinging, personal attacks against both Melissa Fox and Anthony Kuo. Cheema is a creep who has helped make this election among the ugliest ever. And the website named above — shows that Cheema lives in a fragile glass house and shouldn’t throw stones.

    Kuo is a conservative, Fox a true progressive. Schizoid candidate with too much to spend??

    Everyone knows the surefire way to lose an election is to use .trade as a web extension.

    That along with getting an underemployed blogger to run your campaign and craft a USELESS message.

      Which candidate is using .trade?

        Oh I think he was referring to the old guy Greg and Cynthia fooled into running for assembly this summer.

        I saw 5he dude beong fed “fishy crackers” ala Strom Thurmond.

        Who the f%ck under 70 would allow a .trade extension.

        Thats my guess but, it would not surprise me to see CRAZY GREG infiltrating other area’s where he does not vote and has ZERO INFLUENCE.

          Democrats in Irvine don’t listen to him. He has no influence. To be honest, Democrats in Irvine have their own opinions on what to do. Greg thinks they listen to me. Truth is I ask them how they are thinking and why, and I’ll give them my opinion if they ask, but I’m not counseling anyone like he tries to.

    Greg just admitted his daughter pays rent. She makes more $ than he does. Slacker.

    So Vern counts on Donna’s paycheck, Zenger counts on his wife’s check, Greg has 2 women supporting him all at a time when the local economy is doing well. Losers one and all
