Don Wagner had a fundraiser that was very well supported. In said fundraiser, it was clear that Don Wagner has a ton of friends, way more than John Moorlach has.
It was also clear that Tim Clark, Moorlach’s Chief of Staff who was twisting arms a few weeks ago and getting people to cave in to the status quo in Orange County has not been able to make his threats work in other parts of the state.
I can understand Mr. Clark’s loss of control feeling, it is odd when you’re used to being able to roll people at will and getting told no.
So – the situation is the event is in a well-known and well-traveled Bar-Restaurant in Sacramento. Enter one Mr. Clark with his cell phone lurking around the outside of the building looking in and photographing people.
Apparently the gumby-looking Tim Clark knew he was not intimidating enough and thus needed to photograph people to create some sort of revenge list for John Moorlach.
One should also note – right next door was a fundraiser for Bob Huff. However, Tim Clark apparently decided to spend his evening at Don Wagner’s fundraiser instead.
I wonder if Scott Baugh knew these sorts of antics were going to happen when he cut a deal with John Moorlach? (Anyone that knows Moorlach knows you don’t make deals with him)
Well if he (Baugh) and the OCGOP didn’t, they certainly own it all now, but Tim Clark’s professionalism did not stop there.
Clark is fond of walking the halls of the State Senate and bragging to his staff about all the people he has f–ked. I am sure Baugh and others are in the work queue as I write this.
Clark went inside the building and sat at the end of the bar. Note – Clark did not order a drink or anything as he is a reputed cheapskate. He continued filming and photographing people and typing on his cell phone the entire time.
The participants in the event were laughing at him.
Undaunted, Clark stationed himself outside the fundraiser’s exit door to make sure everyone could see him as they were leaving. I am sure he thought he was intimidating – the problem is these are well-adjusted donors and business owners, not Republican party lemmings.
Please note, that Senator John Moorlach (and then Supervisor John Moorlach) does nothing to reign Tim Clark in. This is standard operating procedure for Tim Clark.
Maybe the OCGOP were afraid Tim Clark would show up to an event and film them for later persecution and that had more to do with their support of John Moorlach than Scott Baugh’s manipulation?
Our search for answers will continue as we try to stem the tide of slippage in Orange County despite the best efforts of their GOP leadership to continue it…
