DeMaio’s Campaign House of Horrors

Fera Dayani, California Democratic Party

Carl DeMaio’s campaign for the 52nd congressional district has been plagued by dysfunction from the start. From plagiarism, to offensive tweets, misogynistic emails and accusations of sexual harassment, the disaster that has become the Carl DeMaio for Congress campaign doesn’t ever seem to reach rock bottom.

Carl DeMaio’s penchant for plagiarism isn’t anything new, when he was in Washington D.C. he lifted the work of a competitor and passed it on as his own. During his campaign for Congress his campaign shamelessly copied the work of a respected news outlet.

Next, DeMaio hired a regional field director with a documented history of racially offensive and sexist tweets . DeMaio only fired the staff member when the media brought the offensive remarks to light.

Nestande Can’t Handle The Truth

Fera Dayani, California Democratic Party

Brian Nestande’s campaign for congress hit a few roadblocks.  This summer it was revealed that the pro-Wall Street Republican had not paid his taxes and was hit with a tax lien.

Shaken by revelations of their candidate’s tax dodging past, Nestande’s campaign became increasingly desperate, going so far as accusing Democrats of laundering money, then almost immediately retracting the outrageous claim.

All of this may come as no surprise for a candidate listed on Roll Call’s list of the 9 Biggest Candidate Flameouts this election cycle.

Gorell The Lobbyist

Fera Dayani, The California Democratic Party

That Congressional candidate Jeff Gorell was once a lobbyist is a matter of record yet he seems to go into hysterics when people point that out.

However, according to the Los Angeles Times and Ventura County Star Gorell was definitely a lobbyist early in his career and now he’s attempting to run from his past.

If he can’t be honest about his past how can he be honest once in office? In this desperation to join the ranks of John Boehner and the rest of the extreme Republicans in Congress, Gorell is leaving many questions unanswered.

DeMaio Owes the Tea Party

Fera Dayani, California Democratic Party

It’s no secret Carl DeMaio has embraced the Tea Party movement.  In a speech DeMaio gave to a Tea Party group, he referred to them as the “conscience of the accountable government movement.”

In that same speech, DeMaio clearly states that there is no room for bipartisan compromise and promotes the “my way or the highway” negotiating style that has brought Washington D.C. to standstill thanks to his Tea Party compatriots already in Congress. 

Upon seeing this video, it’s clear DeMaio will simply add to the gridlock in Congress and voters shouldn’t expect much in the way of solutions from him.

Walden raising cash for Nestande

Fera Dayani, California Democratic Party

It’s day two of NRCC chairman Greg Walden’s California Cash Blitz!

Today he is fundraising for Republican Brian Nestande, who is running in #CA36. Nestande fits the profile of the kind of Republican Walden is looking for to fill the extreme Republican Congressional ranks. He has voted against raising the minimum wage in California and is a supporter of the Paul Ryan budget.

Walden is surely salivating at the chance to finally implement the Paul Ryan budget - which would effectively gut social security - and getting Nestande, into Congress will give Walden and Republicans a chance to enact their extreme budget.

Check back for more updates on Nestande and the Congressional Republican candidates who are Wrong for California this cycle.
