Solorio comes clean about his travel

I received an email from Jose Solorio today, regarding his wife’s expenses as noted on his recent campaign financial report. Solorio, a council member in Santa Ana, is running for the 69th Assembly District.

It turns out that the item in question was reimbursement for travel incurred by Solorio, not his wife. Thanks Jose for clarifying this point!

In related news, a little pajarito told me that Solorio may be cutting deals with prominent community leaders, including Republicans, offering them spots on city commissions in return for their support for his assembly campaign. I have not verified this, but it is nothing new. This kind of stuff has been going on in Santa Ana for years.
