The SECOND-WORST Mailer of the Campaign — and Still Not Even Ed Royce’s!

Holy God.  Look at this.

Poster accusing Larry Agran of abetting child rapists

Orange County Politics: “Hello, Consultant? What’s the worst thing we could anonymously and absurdly accuse this guy of doing? Abetting child rapists? OK, let’s go with that!”

Chris Norby’s attack on Sharon Quirk-Silva for making an unspecified attack on him and his family that she never in fact made remains the most disgusting mailer I’ve seen in this campaign, given the likelihood that he forced his immigrant wife to sign a statement denying that he had abused her.  Until the past couple of days, most of what the Ed Royce campaign has had to say about Jay Chen has been tied for second.  Now, unexpectedly, a new contestant has come along to push Royce’s mailers into third place.  It accuses Larry Agran of abetting child rape.

That’s, uh, pretty low.  Absurd, too — but awfully low.

As such, it’s pretty typical of conservative Orange County “winning is the only thing” politics, where no one gets held responsible for this sort of vile filth — and vice (even if repudiated for the record) is rewarded.

The ad is put out by the innocuous-sounding “California Term Limits PAC,” which someone who isn’t spending this weekend on GOTV and such can look up in their spare time.  (Remember — when you hear “term limits,” this is what you should think about in practice!)

I therefore don’t blame Agran’s opponent Stephen Choi for this directly — but he sure as hell should denounce it.  (Spread that word, folks!)

Will he?  My guess is: at least without pressure, no he won’t.

For the record, to my knowledge the groups that have actually done the most the abet pederasts are not supporting Agran in this election.

I’m not going to post a picture of them.  Instead, for balance, here is Steven Choi with my opponent Bob Huff.

Bob Huff and Steven Choi

Neither of these people has directly, to the best of my knowledge, accused Larry Agran of abetting child rapists. (I could be wrong, though.)

About Greg Diamond

Prolix worker's rights and government accountability attorney. General Counsel of CATER, the Coalition of Anaheim Taxpayers for Economic Responsibility, a non-partisan group of people sick of local corruption. Deposed as Northern Vice Chair of DPOC in April 2014 when his anti-corruption and pro-consumer work in Anaheim infuriated the Building Trades and Teamsters in spring 2014, who then worked with the lawless and power-mad DPOC Chair to eliminate his internal oversight. Runs for office sometimes, so far to offer a challenge to someone nasty who would otherwise have run unopposed. Someday he might pick a fight intending to win it rather than just to dent someone. You'll know it when you see it. None of his pre-putsch writings ever spoke for the Democratic Party at the local, county, state, national, or galactic level. A family member works part-time as a campaign treasurer. He doesn't directly profit from that relatively small compensation and it doesn't affect his coverage. (He does not always favor her clients, though she might hesitate to take one that he hated. He does advise some local campaigns informally and generally without compensation. If that changes, he will declare the interest. He also runs a less frequently published blog called "The Brean," for his chosen hometown, where he is now fighting with its wealthiest and most avaricious citizen-donors. This just seems to be his way.
