Given her rich history of alienating people, it wasn't necessarily surprising that this week three of Deborah Pauly's Villa Park city council members endorsed Todd Spitzer, her opponent in a race for Orange County supervisor.
Pauly has managed in recent years to offend liberals, conservatives, Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians, Greens, Mexicans, Arab Americans, Jewish Americans, gays, fornicators, educated people and non-educated people.
Hell, there's probably a corpse that's rightfully mad as hell at her.
But I must give credit where credit is due. Despite the embarrassing endorsements of Spitzer by her colleagues, Pauly wins OC Weekly's “Political Play of the Week!”
why: In a couple of days, nobody will remember the endorsements, but
what will linger–perhaps for months or years–was Pauly's ice
pick-brutal slam on a TV-camera friendly Spitzer during this week's public debate.
She said this to Spitzer: “You're like the male Gloria Allred. You're always trying to get your name in the news.”
The male Gloria Allred?
Did Pauly produced that hilarious gem on her own or has she been on the horn with Spitzer nemesis Susan Kang Schroeder?
Schroeder describes Spitzer–who will likely trounce in the supervisor's race and has made no secret of his desire to follow Tony Rackauckas as Orange County's district attorney–as the practitioner of this style: “Ready, fire, aim.”
course, Spitzer–a former supervisor, state Assemblyman and
prosecutor–has one word to describe his old pals Schroeder and Rackauckas:

R. Scott Moxley’s award-winning investigative journalism has touched nerves for two decades. An angry congressman threatened to break Moxley’s knee caps. A dirty sheriff promised his critical reporting was irrelevant and then landed in prison. The U.S. House of Representatives debated his work. Federal prosecutors credited his stories for the arrest of a doctor who sold fake medicine to dying patients. Moxley has won Journalist of the Year honors at the Los Angeles Press Club; been named Distinguished Journalist of the Year by the LA Society of Professional Journalists; and hailed by two New York Times Magazine writers for his “herculean job” exposing Southern California law enforcement corruption.
