Lopez buddy Palacio backs Pacheco

This item is simply asounding. John Palacio, the choice of union thugs and former partner of recalled Santa Ana trustee Nativo Lopez, has apparently decided to support Gayle Pacheco for the 60th Assembly District. Palacio, a Democrat, has endorsed Republicans before, namely Orange County Sheriff Mike Carona, but this is the first time I recall him backing a legislative GOP candidate. Clearly we need to do what we can to elect Pacheco’s opponent, Bill MacAloney.

Here is the email message Palacio sent to his email list:
