Vern Nelson is the editor of the Orange juice blog and he’s has documented periods of time to dry out for alcohol abuse, so he posted something about me this week that is not accurate (booze talking; I don’t know).
In 2016, as a DPOC and CDP member, I cast my endorsement vote for Brian Forde, a fellow techie and because Beth Krom asked me too do so and I have a hard time saying no to Mrs. Krom. This was for Congress in CA45. But I also gave an equal political contribution to Dave Min and Katie Porter before the Primary and made another contribution to Porter prior to the November election. I’ll also point out I contributed to Congressman Lou Correa’s re-election campaign and have made additional contributions to him, Porter, and to Congressman Harley Rouda this year.
Vern reported I supported a different candidate in 2016 than Porter. It’s the booze talking. He’s not accurate and when he calls people in OC running for office, it’s what he thinks, not what the facts offer,
I was lucky to have three great candidates to choose from in 2016; once Porter won the primary, I supported her. When I was on Capitol Hill in April, I saw Porter, Lou Correa, Harley Rouda and Mike Levin. Great to see OC so well represented in DC. But my vote at DPOC and CDP was for Forde. My money went to Porter. Vern can’t afford a financial contribution of any sort. He’s fortunate to have a roof over his head courtesy of his wife.
I’d ask Nelson to correct the record, but I have no desire to interact with a blogger who doesn’t report accurate facts that are easy for anyone to research.
And I made contributions to these candidates. He did not. So there. I’d call him, but why bother?
