Tan Nguyen strikes again

I noticed a new mailer from the Tan Nguyen campaign yesterday – and so did Martin Wisckol, over at the Total Buzz (OC Register). Here is his assessment of the mailer:

Tan Nguyen strikes again

If you thought Tan was fading from view, think again. He’s hitting mailboxes with a slick glossy that claims his campaign’s controversial letter to foreign-born voters was not intimidation, and the resulting outrage was a “dirty trick” of 47th Congressional District opponent Rep. Loretta Sanchez, D-Garden Grove. That letter and Republican Tan Nguyen’s denial of having a direct hand in it led state attorney general investigators to raid Nguyen’s campaign office and take his computers.

The mailer carries the headline, “Computers Wrongly Seized are Returned!” (Here’s the front of the mailer and here’s the back.) Attorney general spokesman Nathan Barankin promptly issued a stern rebuttal that says, among other things, that the computers were not wrongly seized and were returned simply because investigators had finished downloading the hard drives.

“This guy (Nguyen) is shameless,” offered Frank Barbaro, chairman of the OC Democratic Party.
