A hat tip to the LA Times for this post about how the California Fair Political Practices Commission wants to require candidates for political office to disclose payments to bloggers to post positive pieces for a candidate or attack sites to tear down other candidates. From the story: Alarmed that political groups are secretly funding bloggers…
I would like to take this time to congratulate Mayor Miguel Pulido on his outstanding victory. Despite being exposed as a politician ripping off taxpayers, selling your vote to the highest bidder, taking every taxpayer funded perk on the planet and running a huge pay to play scheme by funneling money through a Democratic Party PAC, voters still gave you a mandate to rule the city. As a Santa Ana voter and taxpayer I have some recommendations for your 9th term as Mayor.
Re-elect Loretta Sanchez, Re-elect Lou Correa, Elect Alfredo Amezcua!
So time to conclude some of my elections picks for this year. I will begin with a some other races and go into Santa Ana, which has been quite contentious this go round, with our esteemed blog being right in the middle of the action.
At long last, the anti-immigrant mailers and letters of Miguel Pulido are revealed. A reading from the Letter of Miguel Pulido to Barbara Coe.
These developers want to continue to have a carte blanche with money that should be used for our streets, parks and public safety, not to enrich a bunch of South Orange County developers and trash barons. They know if Amezcua is elected, he will turn this city back over to the residents and they cannot have that. Spread the word and know these hit pieces are untrue and nothing more than a move of desperation by developers who want to screw the residents of Santa Ana.
