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.


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.

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.

I am surprised that Dana would bother with Gary. He along with Leece and Foley voted for those evil employee contracts that the OCGOP abhorred. Gary always seems to get a pass on his despicable behavior. I can't imagine anyone whether liberal or conservative supporting him. As to Dana and his campaign funds. It does not surprise me. All career politicians seem to have their hand in the cookie jar to support their lifestyles.

great hit piece!! thank you (or genis or ridge,etc.)for this Costa Mesa news. Can't wait to see who is next. Mansoor? As far as I am concerned Rohrabacher can go straight to Congress again and again. A good representative for the conservative people of our region. He is a shoe in but might as well make an enemy of him. What could it hurt?

I hope he loses his seat, not a fan of this man at all. Former Military service only gets you so far, if your just a greedy jerk for years and years. Those medals lose their luster. It's doesn't surprise me he's courrpt to the core.

It's hilarious. NONE of the supporters of the current regime deny, refute, or otherwise say ANYTHING about the issue.
They only blast Ridge, West or Leece. Ha!

Why does West choose to make mountains out of mole good and attack wives?

Daily Pilot quantified this is not an issue.

Hating and anger transferance must make West feel better.

Just glad he never had kids.

Dana Rohrabacher is my congressman and I'm having a very hard time connecting with him.
I've called his office {(714) 960-6483} at least 7 times in the last 11 weeks inquiring when he is meeting with his constituents. It seems that he doesn't plan on EVER having a town hall meeting. If Mr Rohrabacher is your Congressman too, please call his office and encourage him to have a town hall meeting
