Endorsements Table: DPOC vs. OCLF vs. OCGOP vs. What You Got?

smileys red and blue

With Chris Nguyen burning up the lines with news of the OC Republican Party’s tentative endorsements, I just thought that this might be interesting.  (It’s not like it’s self-serving, at any rate.)  Here are the DPOC and OCLF endorsements for the non-partisan offices.  DPOC gets you a bright blue smiley face, OCLF gets you a sky blue one.  Any other endorsements among liberal (or liberalish) (or liberalish-ish) that you think belong here?  Send then my way!  OCGOP Central Committee endorsements get the red smiley face; this week’s OCGOP Endorsement Committee nods remain tentative pending approved at their next Central Committee meeting, so until they are final endorsements they get only magenta.

This will be updated.  Who else do you want to see?  Sierra Club?  Tea Party?  It ought to be a group large enough that more than just a handful of people’s opinions make the chart, so — sorry, Libertarian Party.  Pedroza will write you up instead.

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.
