Harry Sidhu caught redhanded taking tickets for events at the Anaheim Pond

Anaheim Councilman Harry Sidhu, who is running for the 33rd Senate District, is busted! His Republican opponent, Mimi Walters, recently mailed an embarrassing hit piece on Sidhu that revealed that he has accepted one thousand, two hundred and fifty two tickets to events in Anaheim – and he did not report the value of these tickets on his tax returns or campaign finance forms. Not good!

The mailer states that Sidhu, as an Anaheim Councilman, is supposed to oversee the promoters and management at the Anaheim Pond/Honda Center, in order to protect taxpayers. But Sidhu has accepted over $100,000 worth of three tickets in just three years from the very promoters he is supposed to be regulating. Shame on you Sidhu!

This story reminds me of the recent outcry over the hundreds of thousands of dollars of Orange County Fair concert tickets that politicians from both the OC GOP and the DPOC took. The current State Senator in the 33rd State Senate District, Dick Ackerman, took some of those OC Fair tickets, ripping off the taxpayers in the process.

For the record, I am not supporting Sidhu or Walters as they both are engaging in rabid anti-Mexican attacks in their mailers. I have endorsed Gary Pritchard, their Democratic opponent. You can read more about Gary at this link.
