Prison Guards Against Mansoor
Matthew Cunningham (the writer formerly known as Jubal) over at the Red County/OC Blog provided us with an interesting little piece of information in an entry today entitled, "AD68 Watch: Prison Guard Union May Target Allan Mansoor". Why does it not surprise me that the cadre of men and women with whom he is closely associated, having been a Sheriff Deputy/jailer for going on fifteen years, have apparently not only turned their back on him but have decided to aggressively oppose his political plans? What does that tell you about the man? I mean, who knows the real man better than those who have shared his workplace for a decade and a half?
Buried in the text is a link that tells us of a fundraiser tomorrow for our young jailer (is he still a jailer?)/mayor. If you follow the link you will find the invitation includes many of the OC GOP movers and shakers plus some much lesser minions from Costa Mesa. The names of Surat Singh, Mike and Judy Berry, Jim Righeimer and Steve Mensinger are shown as members of his "host committee". Honorary co-hosts include Gary Monahan, Wendy Leece, Colin McCarthy and Jeff Matthews - the last two, along with Mensinger, are recently appointed Costa Mesa commissioners. Appointed by whom, you ask? Guess...
EILEEN OF LAGUNA RIDES AGAIN!
Even more interesting is the fact that the hosts for this Rancho Santa Margarita event are George & Eileen Riviere. Who the heck are they, you might ask? Well, perhaps you'll recognize Eileen if we tell you she's a huge Mansoor supporter who showed up at many Minuteman events on his behalf. She writes to the local newspapers defending Mansoor's biased immigration policies as "Eileen Garcia". I've referred to her frequently as "Eileen of Laguna" - which is where she and hubby, George, reside.
HOBNOBBING WITH THE HEAVY HITTERS
You can pony up a hundred bucks and go rub shoulders with those "important" people... what a thrill! Or, you can fork over $3,900 - the maximum per person per election - and help Mansoor fill his war chest for the election - which is only seventeen months away! Good grief!
SEND HIM YOUR MONEY!
So, all you well-heeled Mansoor sycophants, please, please send him your non-tax deductible contributions so he can use your bucks to lose in the Republican primary next spring to one of the well-organized, well-funded Vietnamese-American candidates for the same seat that are already circling their campaign wagons. Please spend your money on Mansoor's hopeless campaign. Heck, worst case scenario - he wins and heads for Sacramento, where he can use his limited intellect to inflict further damage on this state!
