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

Holy God.  Look at this.

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 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.
