Garden Grove School Board Member Trung “PhotoShop” Nguyen has pulled papers for both Garden Grove City Council and Garden Grove Unified School District (GGUSD) Board of Education. I guess Nguyen, who ran for: the GGUSD School Board in 2004; the OC GOP’s Central Committee in 2006 (which he lost as the only Vietnamese American candidate in the 68th A.D.); the OC Water Board in 2006 (lost again; and the OC Board of Supervisors in 2007 (lost again), wants to lose again – twice. He also pulled papers for the OC Board of Supervisors in 2008, but he did not lose again as he never filed the papers.
Nguyen’s PhotoShop scandal was bad enough (he PhotoShopped himself into a picture with Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger), but the news, reported by the local Vietnamese American media, that he has a bankruptcy in his history, replete with credit card debt and student loans, didn’t help him either. Now he has pulled papers for 2 seats – and I cannot imagine why he would even bother to file for either of these seats.
Just one mailer to remind the voters about Nguyen’s checkered past and sad electoral history and he is toast!
