Faked Switched Voter Attorneys

What do you get when you take a person who claims they are an attorney and a voter in central Orange County who has had their registration switched?

A Republican

That’s right, this weekend brought a wealth of political news that shows just how backwards this county is when the Republicans are so corrupt they are already picking out their office furniture. Van Tran was featured in an article in the Los Angeles Times, which discussed his wife’s criminal record and her posing as an attorney (when she isn’t one, thus a really big offense). Tran’s wife has three misdemeanor convictions for concocting bogus medical bills at her paralegal office in Sacramento. Five others in Cyndi Nyguen’s office were also convicted of insurance fraud. In a rare instance, I have to thank the republican opponent for doing the opposition research, hopefully this will help Paul Lucas and the Democrats gain on Van Tran.

In other news, The Liberal OC is reporting that what seemed as a small isolated incident is quickly approaching 500+-switched registrations in central Orange County. According to some internal sources the number could well be above a thousand switch voters. Bruce McPherson, the Republican Secretary of State, may find himself having to punish members of his own party, but then again he did attend the Republican Flag Day Dinner and was present when Party Chairman Scott Baugh made a mockery of the voter registration process.

With all of this slime, I’m going to go get a shower…

    Did you need help hefting that broad brush? Van Tran’s wife broke the law, and now all OC Republicans are corrupt? Warp drive is necessary to make that leap of logic.

    All I’m saying is “Where there is smoke, there is a fire.”

    With the recent actions of your party chairman and his inability to see the seriousness of the voter registration scandal (as his stunt at your flag day dinner shows), recent problems with Carona and Van Tran it dosen’t take much to connect the dots.

    I doubt Van Tran didn’t know his wife was breaking the law, much like the party not knowing what was going on with the bounty hunters. I doubt you guys are that ignorant, but if you are, what sort of operation are you guys running over there?

    Come on!

    I was there at the Flag Day Dinner — you were not. He made a joke, for crying out loud! Lighten up.

    Second, what do Mike Carona, Van Tran and the voter reg problem have to do with each other? There are no dots to connect.

    You are a smart guy — why would the OC GOP knowingly pay for bad registrations? I have yet to find any oif the people screaming “Scandal!” who can answer that question. It’s much easier to simply assume the worst.

    While I like a little bit of comedy now and then, Baugh’s joke about voter registration was out of line no matter how funny he tries to make it seem.

    Why would the OC GOP pay for bad registrations? Or on second thought, why did they hire a company that has had questionable connections in the past? Some of our numbers are getting pretty high, so this isn’t just an isolated incident.

    Answer the question, Mike.

    I’ll answer –
    Politics by any means necessary – the end justifies the means kiddo.

    On the registrations – 500 and still counting.
    Wouldn’t one fraudulant switch be too many?
    Jubal, if the shoe were on the right foot, you would be squealing and demanding jailtime for Dem Party Leadership.

    You will be wishing for 500 fraudulant switches out of 8,000. Based on the calls that were made by my people (unscientific as it is) out of 180 contacts (talking to a live person) 100 said they did not know they had been switched. That is over half.

    I was somewhat circumspect initially knowing bounty hunters are apolitical. If they do have a Party or allegience, it is the Green(as in monetary). That you and Baugh can just laugh it off is Unamerican.

    As far as I am concerned, you and Scotty are complicit in perpetrating a fraud and disenfranchising hundreds of voters. If you were really “shocked” at what happened, it was in the OCGOPs best interest to undo the damage.

    I’ll second Demmother’s comments.
