Tea Baggers’ Selective Outrage

If these tea baggers were so principled against the bail out like they claim to be, one would think they would go and volunteer endlessly for Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez, or even the Republicans who voted against it such as Dana Rohrbacher. Instead there favorite son is a man who bent over for the banks and gave them their bailout. I would like an explanation from Megan Barth, the self proclaimed leader of the tea baggers in Irvine as to this oversight. Why is John Campbell getting a free pass for his vote FOR the bailout, while Loretta Sanchez has not so much gotten one thank you from the tea baggers?

A Personal Response to a Personal Attack

Sean Mill and I are friends. I know that sentence makes some of my co-bloggers here uneasy at best and angry at worst. I’ve never had a problem with Sean and I don’t think he’s had one with me. And even after we get through this post, I expect we’ll still be on speaking terms. And if we’re not, c’est la vie. But his post on the OJBlog yesterday warrants a response. The post is a “criticism” on Claudio W. Gallegos’ post about Ceci Iglesias’ campaign for Congress in CD-47 where it appears she’s being placed to draw votes from Rep. Loretta Sanchez.

Cecilia “Ceci” Iglesias- GOP in an Independent’s Clothing

The Latino community has been reporting for the past couple of weeks a woman who has been going around the community named Cecilia “Ceci” Iglesias touting herself as an Independent candidate for Congress in the 47th Congressional District, Loretta Sanchez’ seat. A little digging is revealing a much bigger picture, a clear effort by the Republican party to split the Latino vote from Loretta in the general. Nice try folks, but next time, try to hide the evidence better.

First, I went to Iglesias’ website, which you can see HERE. On her bio page, one can get the first hints she is a ringer for the GOP. She mentions working for a voter registration project in the Santa Ana and Garden Grove area, but fails to detail which one. Could it be the one that was illegally switching voters to the Republican party? Apparently she is also a resident of the Windsor Village neighborhood. So upon learning that, I looked into her voter registration information. She is apparently registered in the neighborhood at 1322 S. Arapaho Dr., which is in the neighborhood. The interesting part is she only registered there this past August.

Loretta’s Holiday Card Debuts December 1

We just received word from the DPOC that Rep. Loretta Sanchez will make an announcement on December 1.  The announcement isn’t that she will run for Governor, but will be about the debut of her new holiday card.  Will it be racy?  Tame? Controversial? And how many lives does that cat have exactly? Previous cards…

Van Tran: Looking for Love in all the Wrong Places

I just about spit coffee all over my keyboard Wednesday morning when I opened up this email from Assemblyman Van Tran. It seems that Conservative/Republican Van Tran is either getting very bold or very desperate in his bid to unseat Orange County’s favorite Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez.  Sending an email to the Orange County Drinking Liberally…
