--the onetime San Francisco mayor, current California lieutenant governor and possible future governor or U.S. senator--is scheduled to give the keynote speech tonight at the 18th Annual Truman Awards Dinner in Anaheim for the Democratic Party of Orange County.

Newsom follows Barney Frank***--the powerful Massachusetts congressman who gave a rousing, anti-Republican Party address last year--as entertainment for the primary fundraising event for local Democrats in 2012.

This year's soiree will be held at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa and undoubtedly will be crammed with acclaimed criminal defense lawyers, immigration activists and public employee union members anxious to listen to the man many Democrats hope will someday replace Jerry Brown in the governor's mansion.

Sharon Quirk-Silva, who is campaigning against Republican state Assemblyman Chris Norby, will be honored with the Harry S Truman AwardJoseph Kerr, a longtime union official, will receive the Samuel Gompers AwardChristopher Townsend, one of the region's most savvy government lobbyists, will get the Richard O'Neill Lifetime Achievement Award

Ticket prices begin at $150 for general admission or $125 for members of the local Young Democrats committee.

A VIP reception ($1,000 and up) is set for 5 p.m. with the dinner and main program beginning at 7 p.m. 

For more information, contact Nick Anas at rsvp@ocdemocrats.org or call (714) 835-5158.

I totally forgot we had a Lt. Gov. What has he been doing all this time besides chasing skirts?

Newsom is a sleazy Lothario that left San Francisco in a financial and regulatory shambles, sleeps with his best friend's wives and is a major liability for the Democratic Party along with K-Spice Kamala Harris. Both kicked upstairs and promoted on the basis of who they know rather than achievements.

I thought the DPOC gave Mayor Quirk-Silva a Truman award just a few years ago. Are they running out of people to honor?

Is this the same Barney Frank that helped cause the Housing Crisis (Fannie/Freddie untruths)?

Gavin will also never be able to wash the blood of the Bologna family from his hands. And what are these people celebrating and handing out awards for when the once golden state of California is swirling the drain? Truth truly is stranger than fiction.

 @909Jeff Look at the dude -- obviously his 'affair' with his buddy's wife was overcompensating.

 @909Jeff Hi Jeff. Perhaps he graduated from the Newt Gingrich School of Family Values.
