Playing "Monopoly" With The Rohrabachers
If you happened to be at Gary Monahan's re-election fund raiser at his gin mill this evening and stumbled across Representative Dana Rohrabacher, I hope you asked Dana about the article from the OC Weekly yesterday, HERE, that tells us that his wife, Rhonda, has been pocketing about half his campaign contributions under the guise that she's his "campaign manager". That's right - about half of every buck you sent to old Dana to perpetuate his more than two dozen years in Congress over the past few months to run his campaign went directly into his joint bank account. So, as Dana runs up a tab at Skosh's tonight, you're paying a piece of it.
DANA MAY ACTUALLY HAVE TO CAMPAIGN NEXT YEAR
With the new congressional districts now approved, it looks like Rohrabacher may actually have to campaign for his seat next year - probably even in the primary. This will be a change for him - he's been a lock for several elections.
CONTROVERSY NOT NEW...
In case you're wondering, controversy is not new to the Rohrabachers. Before they married and produced triplets the then-Rhonda Carmony was Rohrabacher's campaign manager. You can read all about some of her mis-adventures HERE and HERE. Be sure you look for other familiar names as you scroll through the stories.
