Why is Chris Norby sending campaign emails to County workers – at work?

Chris Norby gets busted

Did Chris Norby send campaign emails to County workers?

UPDATE: The Orange County Register has picked up our story, “Norby campaign consultant Matt Holder said the mailing this week was made in error – that county employees’ names should have been removed from the mailing list and that no contributions will be accepted from employees responding to the email.”

“Supervisor Chris Norby sent out an oddly timed mass email today about his bid to become the next county clerk-recorder. But it did manage to rouse me to compare his fundraising totals with those of opponent Hugh Nguyen, a former chief deputy recorder,” according to the Total Buzz blog.

It was a bizarre email.  It had nothing new to say.  And a pajarito reports that Norby sent the email to various county workers – to their county email addresses.

Ruh roh!  Is it legal for Norby to send political email to County workers who did not request that such email be sent to them at work?

Did GOP consultant John Lewis have anything to do with this?  What about current Clerk-Recorder Tom Daly?

Norby crossed the line by sending campaign email to county workers.  Is he getting desperate as his opponent, Hugh Nguyen, keeps racking up endorsements?

Here is how the O.C. Register described Nguyen’s domination over Norby:

Norby has rubbed a few people the wrong way and Nguyen was the beneficiary with some noteworthy early endorsements for the 2010 race to replace Tom Daly. Among those throwing their support Nguyen’s way are state Sens. Mimi Walters and Bob Huff, for state Sens. Marian Bergeson and Dick Ackerman, former Supervisor Cynthia Coad, major GOP donor Dale Dykema and a handful of city council members.

Perhaps Norby should quit now and retire?  How can he be our next Clerk-Recorder when he and his lame campaign staff can’t even figure out how to send campaign emails?
