Remember my criticism of Moorlach shopping for offices to run for? Governor, Congress and now Senate?
The OC Register blew him up for going to Washington DC and availing himself of the opportunity to solicit support for his run for Congress. (which was after his “run” for Governor and before his current run for State Senate)
Moorlach also has found himself the target of mud-flicking.
Earlier this month, Moorlach was in Washington on the taxpayers’ dime to lobby for a bipartisan pension-reform bill. Thanks to a tip from Walters’ consultant, Dave Gilliard, I learned that he met with the Club for Growth and Americans for Tax Reform to seek their support for his House bid while he was there. That rubbed Gilliard, Maciariello and Raths the wrong way.
“I don’t have the luxury of having the county pay for me to go to Washington so I can meet with campaign-related people,” Raths said.
In the Past – Moorlach was sued by the California Club for Growth Newsletter, the Non-Partisan Candidate Evaluation Council and the National Guard Association of California. They all had to sue Moorlach to get him to pay his bills to them for their slate mail cards.
The Moral of Today’s Post – John Moorlach pulls the same crap many other ethically-challenged candidates pull.
This is of course why Moorlach would rather you pay attention to the bright shiny Pringle over there or the independent expenditures over here – rather than focusing on his own blatant hypocricy that will cost him his next paycheck on our dime. #facepalm
