Steel: Show me the money!
Just 50 days remain until the June 3 elections for three seats on the Orange County Board of Supervisors and, as usual, the campaign money race offers hints about the likely frontrunners.

Based on contribution activity (and personalities), the four-person race to replace termed-out 2nd District Supervisor John Moorlach is the most contentious with candidates having stockpiled more than $662,000 in their war chests.

Here's the cash-on-hand (as of the last disclosure report through mid-March) breakdown for those candidates:

Norby: Retaliation victim?
Following April 7 news that prosecutors declined to file criminal, domestic violence charges against him, former Orange County state Assemblyman Chris Norby--a longtime, vocal opponent of public employee unions--told his supporters that Fullerton Police Department officers, hellbent on a politically-motivated witch hunt, smeared him.

"I was treated with hostility and disdain by the arresting Fullerton police officers, and many have seen political motives based on my past and possible future activities," Norby wrote in a letter to his supporters. "There were no witnesses, no evidence [and] no case."

Police arrested the Republican politician in March after his wife claimed he'd committed repeated acts of domestic violence, including forcing her to have violent, non-consensual, sexual intercourse.

Fleischman--a well-connected, veteran Republican Party activist and founder of the successful FlashReport that has routinely dominated conservative online discussions in the state--said in a press announcement that the move "represents some much-needed reinforcements in the ongoing battle against the institutional left in California."

Gang of three
Remember the unbridled joy that was unleashed when UC Irvine revealed Barack Obama will speak at the 50th anniversary graduation ceremony at Angel Stadium on June 14? I recall video of students hooting and hollering as if finals were canceled and blanket A's were given out.

Well, it turns out not everyone in Irvine is pleased about the looming presidential visit.
