This is part three.

Part one – the “charges” against Greg, and his response.

Part two – we learn that the hearing will be a closed “Star Chamber.”

Out of nothing comes everything!

My fondest wish in politics has been to be in an honest political party dedicated to freedom and liberty, but also to fairness and mitigating misery.

That’s obviously not in the cards right now, so I have to settle for my second-best outcome: doing what I think is right and, if removed, have it be done in a completely arbitrary and capricious way.

I don’t want to characterize the reasons for my removal, because anything I say would sound so ridiculous that people would think that I was making it up.  Ask Chumley or Florice or Skurnik or Lenore or Ray Cordova or some of the other people on that side and see if they can explain it.  If you put them in separate rooms, I think you’d get all different explanations — none of which would have anything to do with the CDP rules regarding removal.  I’m willing to make distinctions among Republicans and Democrats, is the main thing — and even when I follow the letter of the law, that’s not good enough. They wanted blood and nothing could stop them from getting it.

“I spent years working to improve the Democratic Party and all I got is this bloody shirt!”  But a bloody shirt can be damned useful!

That’s all I have to say for now — but I’ll have plenty more to say later  Stay tuned for updates!


About Greg Diamond

Somewhat verbose attorney, semi-retired due to disability, residing in northwest Brea. Occasionally runs for office against bad people who would otherwise go unopposed. Got 45% of the vote against Bob Huff for State Senate in 2012; Josh Newman then won the seat in 2016. In 2014 became the first attorney to challenge OCDA Tony Rackauckas since 2002; Todd Spitzer then won that seat in 2018. Every time he's run against some rotten incumbent, the *next* person to challenge them wins! He's OK with that. Deposed as Northern Vice Chair of DPOC in April 2014 (in violation of Roberts Rules) 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. Expelled from DPOC in October 2018 (in violation of Roberts Rules) for having endorsed Spitzer over Rackauckas -- which needed to be done. None of his pre-putsch writings ever spoke for the Democratic Party at the local, county, state, national, or galactic level, nor do they now. One of his daughters co-owns a business offering campaign treasurer services to Democratic candidates and the odd independent. He is very proud of her. He doesn't directly profit from her work and it doesn't affect his coverage. (He does not always favor her clients, though she might hesitate to take one that he truly hated.) He does advise some local campaigns informally and (so far) without compensation. (If that last bit changes, he will declare the interest.)
