Supervisor John Moorlach announced that he was dropping his bid for the 45th Congressional seat being vacated by retiring Congressman John Campbell. It was a long shot to begin with, given the huge fundraising advantage the State Senator Mimi Walters had in fundraising.
State Senator Mimi Walters, and Assemblywoman Diane Harkey are both wealthy housewives from southern Orange County now serving in the state legislature. Their latest crusade is to derail California’s High-Speed Rail project. Walters claims the project funding could be better prioritized for “the most vulnerable populations of our state.” She’s lying.
Shawn Nelson has gone to great lengths to try to hide that history. I reported a while ago about Nelson’s specialties as once advertised on his law practice website. After that story ran, Nelson pulled out all the stops and had the record scrubbed from readily available Internet history.
In his day job, Shawn Nelson is a criminal defense attorney. It is an admirable profession, defending those accused of crimes, regardless of their guilt or innocence. This is a core function of our American system of justice. Without criminal defense attorneys, our system simply does not work.
