Todd Spitzer Dinged By Republican Blog

The past haunts Spitzer
Orange County supervisor candidate Todd Spitzer--who apparently returns the phone calls of reporters who'll toss him softballs--got more evidence today that he won't easily sail to victory.

The folks at the Friends for Fullerton's Future (FFF) blog slammed Spitzer for his past service on the board of supervisors, and it wasn't pretty.

Spitzer hails himself as a good government activist but, as the FFF blog notes, during his prior stint as a supervisor he voted for two of the most controversial measures in modern county history:

1. Allowing certain government workers to retire at the age of 50 and collect 90 percent of their top salary for the rest of their lives.

2. Allowing Sheriff Mike Carona to drop all professional law enforcement hiring standards to name as his powerful assistant sheriffs Don Haidl, a shady businessman, and George Jaramillo, another dubious character. 

(Surely, I don't need to remind you that Carona, Haidl and Jaramillo are all now convicted felons, right?)

"[Spitzer] assures us he has the experience we need in a county supervisor," FFF writes. "Guess Spitzer figures nobody's been paying attention. He is wrong."

At the moment, it looks like Spitzer's fellow Republican opponent in the race will be Chuck DeVore, the former state assemblyman who ran an unsuccessful campaign to win the Republican nomination to run against U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer in the last election.

I would just like to thank Todd Spitzer for flipping me and my little sister off as we pulled up the street to our home in Orange and then deleting my thanks off of his facebook. He seems like a real winner

I read that Red Counties OWNER/EDITOR and CONTRIBUTOR Chip Hanlon was indicted on Fraud charges by the SEC.

Meanwhile commenters lash out at the FFFF for being disgruntled. These guys on the 4F have done more for the community in uncovering fraud (Harry Sidhu, Matt "JUBAL" Cunningham, Linda Akerman, than any media oulet save maybe this one.

So bitch about John Birchers, disgrunteled old men, but truth be told, they are the ones asking the questions, while the Repugicans are stealing.

Oh yeah, Where are those guys from Irvine and Long Beach, who profess to "Challenge the ight Wing Noise Machine"???????? Answer....Meeting with Jubal on thier next big web venture!

Funny as hell. The 4Fers are a bunch of disgruntled republikan freaks who would tear each other apart at the drop of a dem. They don't enjoy or even allow any comments that don't flow with their own warped view of the real OC. No one in the real world hears these goofs. If this is the worst Spitzer has to come up against, he has no worry.

I question why government employees deserve to get no-brainer golden parachute retirement programs while the rest of the public has to fend for themselves to earn, save, and wisely invest to their peril and with no safety net of a guaranteed income forever.On Mr. Spitzer's behalf I must confess that I have had one occurance where our paths crossed at the District Attorney's office. A road rage incident with an older man chasing my teenage daugher after she had cut him off. Even though my 1st desire was to jail the guy, Mr. Spitzer took the time to decipher what exactly occured. He made the wise judgement to have the man pay for the damages he caused with no criminal action. In hindsight I believe Mr. Spitzer made the right choices. Everybody makes a bad call now and then, no one was injured and the car was fixed. Mr. Spitze could have easily drug this guy through the mud, probably ruin his job & who knows what else. Instead a strong warning and reimbursement sent the right message i believe.
