Tom Daly COULD have denounced JOBSPAC’s LIEs, but…


 Powered by Max Banner Ads 

Tom Daly could have been embarrassed by what was being done in his name during the primary campaign that ends tomorrow.  In fact, as a nominal Democrat, he should have been by the onslaught of LIEs — that’s “Late Independent Expenditures” — offered up on his behalf. While he couldn’t have stopped it — although he couldn’t have participated in it (and for all I know he didn’t; maybe he always poses with mops and brooms as shown below) — he could have denounced it; he could have said “no thanks, that’s not how I want to win.  ”He could have said “I stand for the values of the Democratic Party.”

But — he didn’t.

 

Can you imagine how badly Harry Truman would have reacted to a flyer supporting him like this?

Loud, proud, and the largest thing on this side of the brochure: “REPUBLICANS.”  This flyer was sent to Republicans.  (A lot of you apparently weren’t supposed to see it.  My thanks to the person who e-mailed it to me, who I will not identify absent their wishes that I do so.)

Daly has, in fact, been fine with it.  He has nothing bad to say publicly about JOBSPAC — a PAC apparently designed by some of the worst corporations in the world to prevent reform Democrats like Julio Perez from getting into office.

One might expect a Democrat to feel some shame.  Nope — none.

Tom Daly will, I predict, finish first in this primary election.  If Michele Martinez were to finish second, he might well win in November, because Martinez would have no money and, if he wanted millions, Daly would have millions.  (Unions wouldn’t spend money on a losing cause like Michele.)  Even institutional Republicans would not prefer Joe Moreno to Tom Daly.  Paco Barragan, nice guy though he is, has shown no ability to raise money and so would not have a chance.

Of Daly’s opponents, only Julio Perez has the ability to hold off Tom Daly and ask Democrats in the district, the majority of them liberal on economic issue, if they prefer to vote with the Union of Food and Commercial Workers or with Chervron, Inc.; with Planned Parenthood or with Philip Morris.  Only Perez has the ability to go to the Latino Democrats of the district and beat the non-Latino quasi-Democrat.  And so the money people have been out to steamroll him — but in 30 hours or so we will see that it didn’t work.

When that happens, Tom Daly’s goose will be cooked for November, no matter how much he spends.  I don’t actually dislike Tom Daly and I don’t know what of the tales of corruption and semi-corruption leveled against him on sites like FFFF are valid.  But I do know that he’s not right for this district — and so will voters in November.

Here’s the final score I’ll be able to report on independent expenditures for Tom Daly’s campaign. Note that some are miscategorized as “OPPOSE”; they aren’t.

That’s just the independent expenditures. They also made lots of direct contributions. You can see, though, what a high proportion of the donations by this Republican group (contributions to the Cal Republican Party marked in red) went to Tom Daly (marked in blue).  A couple of the other especially lurid contributions are marked in purple:

It’s fair to say that it all went to the CALIFORNIA SENIOR ADVOCATES LEAGUE PAC.  And where did they put their money?  First of all, they’ve been busy little beavers themselves:

You can check out the link yourself. It goes mainly for two purposes: keeping progressive Democrats (and those with the best chance of beating Republicans) from winning a spot in the general election — and buying a slate of candidates for the Republican Party Central Committee.  You get a sense that this does not have anything to do with “Senior Advocacy”?  As a Republican Campaign official would no doubt tell me right now, it doesn’t have to; that doesn’t break the law.

And, as I’ve written before, there’s another $21,000+ in LIEs from medical professionals to beat Julio Perez — the only opponent that Tom Daly wouldn’t beat in November — as well.  I won’t even review direct contributions to Daly.

In the end, though, what strikes me most about this campaign is — just as in the Sherlock Holmes novel –the evidence provided by the dog that did not bark.  I’m going to write that story up now — but I’ll put off publishing it until tomorrow at oh, 7:45 p.m. or so.  I wouldn’t want it to influence the outcome of the election.


About Greg Diamond

Prolix worker's rights and government accountability attorney and General Counsel of CATER. His anti-corruption work in Anaheim infuriated the Building Trades and Teamsters in spring 2014, leading them to work with the Democratic Party of Orange County Chair and other co-conspirators (who had long detested the internal oversight his presence provided) to remove him from the position of DPOC North Vice Chair of in violation of party rules and any semblance of due process. He also runs for office sometimes. Unless otherwise specifically stated, none of his writings prior to that lawless putsch ever spoke for the Democratic Party at the local, county, state, national, or galactic level. He tries to either suppress or openly acknowledge his partisan, issue, ideological, and "good government" biases in most of his writing here. If you have a question about any particular writing, just ask him about it and (unless you are an pseudonymous troll) he will probably answer you at painful length. He lives in Beautiful Bountiful Brea, but while he may brag about it he generally doesn't blog about it. A family member works as a campaign treasurer for candidates including Wendy Gabriella in AD-73; he doesn't directly profit from that relatively small compensation and it doesn't affect his coverage. He does advise some campaigns informally and (except where noted) without compensation.
