Orange County’s Scariest People of 2018

Illustration by Bob Aul

1 & 2) GENE HERNANDEZ & SUSAN TULLY
Back in April, Yorba Linda Mayor Gene Hernandez chummed it up over the phone with Susan Tully, national field director for the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), a noted hate group. Tully previously emailed council members to invite them to join Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ lawsuit against California’s “Sanctuary State” laws, which the city did. Hernandez gushed at the council about how the pair realized they worked together before; the mayor served on Orange’s police force back in the ’90s when Tully worked code enforcement. Hernandez, a vendido sportin’ old-timey Californio whiskers, ran FAIR’s ground game in reaching out to other municipalities, all in vain. In July, a federal judge ruled mostly in favor of California against Sessions. Mitigating factor: Hernandez’s affair with FAIR led to a liberal awakening in Yorba Linda, one that saw protesters outnumbering Know-Nothings gathered for a rally with ex-sheriff Joe Arpaio and local congressional hopeful Phil Liberatore—both losers!

3) GRACEY VAN DER MARK
Last summer, Gracey Van Der Mark crashed an anti-racist workshop in Santa Monica with a band of anti-Semites, two of whom headed to Charlottesville days later as Unite the Right speakers. She posted video of the chaos and left comments on the thread calling blacks “colored people” who provided “muscle” for Jews running the workshop. On her YouTube channel, Van Der Mark also curated a “Holocaust hoax?” playlist. Two school districts booted her from bond-oversight posts, but Huntington Beach City Councilman Patrick Brenden stood by his finance-commission appointee. Alt-right associations and bigotry didn’t make Congressman Dana Rohrabacher and the OC GOP shy away from endorsing her bid to become an Ocean View School District trustee. Hell, that’s what probably sealed the deal! Mitigating factor: According to old court records from a messy past marriage, Van Der Mark would pass out whenever someone said, “Hypnotize!” If elected to school board, the public can put that ol’ trick to the test! (GSR)

4) RISE ABOVE MOVEMENT
The Rise Above Movement (RAM) debuted at a MAGA march last year in—where else?—Huntington Beach. A white-supremacist fight club, RAM’s penchant for political violence became readily apparent when members punched a Weekly reporter and an anti-fascist protester. Training at Marblehead Park in San Clemente, RAM traveled to rallies in Berkeley and Charlottesville that year for more street brawls. Authorities seemed uninterested until the FBI arrested three members and an associate this month for violating federal rioting laws in Charlottesville. Now, all RAM’s HB-based, white-power-themed clothing company can do is sell lame “Free the Cville 4” stickers while its pals face 10 years in prison. Mitigating factor: After an exposé  by ProPublica, RAM tweeted a pair of journalists the following: “Remember when your out celebrating, toast to the guys who got you your only hit story’s. Remember before us, you were nobody’s.” Can’t accuse RAM of being grammar Nazis! (GSR)

5) CHUCK JOHNSON
Not to be confused with Charles Johnson, the asshole far-right blogger who stuffed Dana Rohrabacher’s campaign coffers and set up a meeting between the congressman and Wikileaks’ Julian Assange last year, our Chuck Johnson is the local unhinged blogger behind HB Sledgehammer. Desperately wanting to be a Surf City scourge, Johnson injected so much invective into his scribblings that his site made the Huntington Beach Community Forum seem halfway-decent by comparison! Unsurprisingly, his favorite political target proved to be a woman: Ocean View School District trustee Gina Clayton-Tarvin. She sued the blogger for making violent threats, but a judge denied her a permanent restraining order. Chuckie rejoiced and countered with an anti-SLAPP motion that got tossed. Mitigating factor: HB Sledgehammer’s online archives are now locked away, viewable only to those slimy souls granted permission. (GSR)

6) ALISO NIGUEL HIGH SCHOOL
With the Aliso Niguel Wolverines hosting the Santa Ana Saints for a football game on “Red, White and Blue” night, what could go wrong in these Trump times? EVERYTHING! Signs in the stands reading, “We gonna trump ya” and chants of “USA!” after Wolverine touchdowns prompted Santa Ana High School principal Jeff Bishop to call for a halftime huddle with Aliso Niguel administrators. He threatened to walk his mostly Mexi kids off the field if the racist taunting continued. After the game, Bishop sounded off on social media, igniting a firestorm of a controversy. Wolverine apologists denied anything Bishop described took place while begging FOX News pendejo Tucker Carlson on Twitter to take the story on—only proving Bishop’s point further! Mitigating factor: Aliso Viejo Mayor (and wannabe Donald Trump) Dave Harrington got caught distributing campaign materials at the game. Flag on the play! (GSR)

7) PHIL BACERRA
After securing key endorsements, Phil Bacerra’s Santa Ana City Council campaign seemed headed for a smooth victory. It’s bad enough Bacerra helped gentrify SanTana during his time as a planning commissioner. But then, Griselda Govea, a former girlfriend, went public with domestic-violence accusations. She claims Bacerra threw her around, called her a cunt, spat at her and kicked dirt in her face during their years-long relationship. Bacerra denies all allegations. The OC Young Democrats rescinded its endorsement anyway. And after launching an investigation, central committee delegates of the Democratic Party of Orange County suspended the nod it gave to his campaign. Mitigating factor: The powerful Santa Ana Police Officers Association continues to back Bacerra, showing voters its true-blue colors! (GSR)

8) THE REVEREND JONATHAN JENKINS
Santa Ana police cuffed youth pastor Jonathan Jenkins outside a liquor store this month for sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl at Starlight Baptist Church. Before staring down his third strike, Jenkins ran Papa’s Fish & Soul Food in Anaheim. But the restaurant shuttered years ago, and now the reverend is accused of being a badly behaving Baptist. Police say he cornered his victim in a Santa Ana church bathroom, then choked and sexually assaulted her. When she didn’t report that incident and others to police, Jenkins allegedly taunted her by saying if she ever did, he’d tell the cops she invited it. Officers must not have bought that line. Mitigating factor: If convicted of a third strike, Jenkins may spend the rest of his life in prison, where he can help correctional cooks make slop a little more soulful. (GSR)

9) THE GOLDEN STATE KILLER
Former cop Joseph James DeAngelo is due back in court Dec. 6 in relation to a long reign of terror in six California counties—including ours—from the mid-1970s through the mid-’80s. The 72-year-old faces 13 counts of first-degree murder; special circumstances for burglary, rape and multiple murders; as well as 13 counts of kidnapping to commit robbery that would also include rape charges had the statute of limitations not expired. Among the Golden State Killer’s murder victims were Dana Point couple Keith and Patrice Harrington, 24 and 27, respectively; Manuela Witthuhn, 28, of Irvine; and the serial slayer’s last known murder victim, 18-year-old Janelle Cruz of Irvine. Mitigating factor: DeAngelo is so old his life sentence will be short. (Matt Coker)

10) DR. GRANT ROBICHEAUX
The Newport Beach orthopedic surgeon, who appeared on the reality show Online Dating Rituals of the American Male, had a dating ritual that involved luring women to drug, rape and videotape them, according to local authorities who fear there may be 1,000 victims. Dr. Grant William Robicheaux, 38, and his 31-year-old girlfriend, Cerissa Laura Riley, face felony rape, assault and oral copulation with anesthesia or controlled substances as well as weapons charges, District Attorney Tony Rackauckas announced at a disturbing press conference in September. Mitigating factor: The nightmare ended quickly, and by that, we mean Bravo’s reality show lasted only one season. (MC)

11) JOHN EDWARD ZERETZKE
He’s a rare back-to-back Scariest Person. Why? Because the 60-year-old music teacher’s name was not released when authorities investigated him last year for allegedly giving semen-filled flutes to students in Fullerton, Fountain Valley, Newport Beach, Costa Mesa, San Juan Capistrano and elsewhere in Southern California. The feds did identify John Edward Zeretzke in September, when he was arrested on suspicion of coercing a young girl to produce child pornography, attempting to entice another victim to send him sexually explicit images, traveling to the Philippines with the intent to engage in illicit sex with children, and receiving child porn over the internet. Mitigating factor: Easy A. (MC)

12) DAVID HENDRICKS
In our opinion, there’s only one chokeout worth noting in 2018. No, we’re not talking about Khabib Nurmagomedov’s legendary fourth-round choke of Conor McGregor; we’re talking about the chokehold Fullerton Chief of Police David Hendricks put on a Symons EMT at an Irvine concert in August. Reportedly, Hendricks, his wife and police captain Thomas Oliveiras were drinking heavily at a Lady Antebellum concert when Hendricks’ wife started feeling sick. When EMTs arrived to help, the chief put an EMT in a chokehold. Mitigating factor: Hendricks was appointed to the position to help improve the Fullerton Police Department’s brutal image in the wake of Kelly Thomas’ death, as well as the FPD coverup of City Manager Joe Felz’s DUI. Glad to know he’ll really fight for the department. (Liam Blume)

13) ORANGE COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS
In early 2018, the Orange County Board of Supervisors evicted the homeless from tents along the Santa Ana Riverbed, only to realize there was no place to relocate them. In March, the board voted unanimously to join Trump’s lawsuit opposing California’s position as a sanctuary state, essentially condoning Gestapo-style ICE raids on immigrant communities. And now, its October lawsuit against the OC Needle Exchange Program is liable to cause an outbreak of disease and infection in the county. This has been a hallmark year in the Supervisors’ long-standing war against empathy, proving that if you’re not white or rich in OC, then they don’t want ya! Mitigating factor: On Sept. 27, the Board approved a sleek, new, $400 million Eagles Nest in Santa Ana. The building will serve as the face of a New Reich after its efforts to rid OC of homeless people, addicts and immigrants through infectious disease and fascist ICE agents is complete. (LB)

14) FORREST GORDON CLARK
White Trash Jesus Forrest Gordon Clark wrought an Old Testament reckoning upon OC by igniting his neighbor Frank R’s home in Holy Jim Canyon in August. The flames engulfed 23,000 acres of the Cleveland National Forest in Orange and Riverside counties, destroyed 18 structures, and injured three firefighters. On Facebook, Clark can be seen kissing a rattlesnake, interpreting the Word of God to proclaim our right to smoketh the weed, and requesting we “hang the pedophile Pope!” Clark violated the First Commandment of Arson: Thou shalt not act crazy as fuck in court after thou burneth thy neighbors’ cabin. Mitigating factor: Clark is facing life in prison for arson, and with any luck, he won’t set any more fires, forever and ever amen. (LB)

15) ASHLEY BEMIS
What can survive with enormous cajones and no heart? Following the Holy Fire, Ashley Bemis scammed via Facebook $11,000 in donations, which she said were to help her fictitious firefighter husband and other fire crews. With international media covering the bizarre antics of White Trash Jesus, maybe it wasn’t the best time to run a large-scale con. Mitigating factor: Bemis’ other lies include telling friends she was pregnant, walking around with a fake baby-bump for eight months, then telling friends the baby died in labor and asking for money to cover medical costs. (LB)

16) TARIN OLSON
Last March, Golden West College counselor Tarin Olson made national headlines when a video of her, apparently unprompted, telling an Asian couple to “go back [to their] home country” went viral. In the video, posted to Facebook by Long Beach resident Tony Kao, Olson pushes the bogus “white genocide” myth propagated by alt-right creeps such as Alex Jones, Mike Cernovich and Ann Coulter when she claims there are “too many” Asian-Americans, making her culture “go extinct,” and hinting who she supported in the 2016 election by telling Kao, “I never voted for you.” Later, in a statement to the Daily Pilot in an attempt to win sympathy, Olson said she was “not in a good place mentally” because of the response to her outburst, which she believes “wasn’t even racist.” Although she is still a Golden West employee, she hasn’t been on campus since the incident, and according to a source, her house went up for sale over the summer. Mitigating factor: She told CBS that her students know she isn’t racist. Sure, whatever. (Spencer Otte)

17) WEIRVINE
We would describe the Chinese-language site in better detail, but none of us knows how to read Mandarin. But we do know WeIrvine was the main force behind one of the most bizarre protests in Orange County history: thousands of mostly Asian immigrants taking tourist buses to an April Orange County Board of Supervisors meeting to protest a plan to erect a temporary homeless shelter at the Orange County Great Park. The immigrants’ argument was straight out of the NIMBY playbook—Irvine is too nice of a city, won’t someone think of the children, Santa Ana deserves them—proving Don Bren is a warlock of unparalleled power. Because what other city can take immigrants who still prefer a foreign language and turn them into frothing nationalists? Mitigating factor: All that Asian migration to Irvine has led the city to have one of the best food scenes in OC. (Sebastian Iturbide)

18) WARREN KUSUMOTO
Los Alamitos has one of the lowest crime rates of any OC city, along with a tiny amount of undocumented immigrants who barely contribute to said crime rate. That didn’t stop two-term City Councilman Warren Kusumoto (who’s currently running for re-election) from pushing to have Los Al fight California over the Sanctuary State law, a fight the small city is so woefully unprepared for it started a GoFundMe page to, well, fund their hate. Mitigating factor: We should always have sympathy for cowards; he never peeped a word while Los Zetas, actual immigrant criminals, operated out of the Los Alamitos Race Track earlier this decade. (SI)

19) MICHAEL GATES
This city attorney for Huntington Beach doesn’t want nudists to rent public pools, illegal immigrants or affordable housing in town, nor does he want residents to try to ban semiautomatic and automatic guns, so he has wielded his legal might to make his will be done. Though Michael Gates doesn’t seem to mind the Surf City’s corrupt police department or the many white supremacists in town, he’s running unopposed for re-election, which shows Fontucky-by-the-Sea residents approve of both his actions and inactions. Mitigating factor: He’s not related to Brad or Daryl, two other sleazy lawmen. (SI)

20) SAMUEL WOODWARD
Newport Beach resident Samuel Woodward, who had homophobic and Nazi images on his cellphone, thought it was fun to pose as “gay curious” on the internet, lure unsuspecting people he considered “faggots,” and then punk them. All that, um, hilarity ended in January, when 21-year-old Woodward allegedly murdered Blaze Bernstein, a gay Ivy League college student home on holiday break. Bernstein’s body was found in a shallow grave at a Lake Forest public park. He’d been stabbed in the face and neck 20 times. When arrested, Woodward, who’d picked up Bernstein at his home before the killing, employed the age-old lame excuse of claiming he was the victim of a sexually aggressive, smaller Bernstein. Please. Mitigating factor: If convicted, Woodward will get his wish to spend the rest of his life only with men. Oh, wait—he probably didn’t think this through. Or did he? (R. Scott Moxley)

21) CHRISTINA IGNATIUS
In Orange County, Asian women “poaching for dollars” dupe “sucker” Caucasians into marriages. Asians can’t pronounce UCLA, calling it “UCRA.” Asians “took over our mall at South Coast Plaza” and walk around with “a zoned-in personality where they act as if no one else exists.” Asians were raised by “Tiger moms who told them ‘to become docta.’” Asians attending UC Irvine with her drove “rice rockets.” That’s just part of attorney Christina Ignatius’ rant in a single Facebook post. When confronted, Ignatius—a Chapman University law grad—dug deeper, stating, “I do not hate Asians. I really love them, and I find differences to be funny and interesting.” Mitigating factor: To win a Fox show, Ignatius must now opine about African-Americans, Mexicans, Jews, gays, Native Americans, poor people and, of course, the Irish. (RSM)

22) JOHN SARO BALIAN
John Saro Balian officially served as a police detective in Los Angeles, but the Seal Beach resident actually worked on the sly for Armenian mobsters and Mexican drug cartels, according to court records. Underworld figures told FBI agents that Balian tipped them to upcoming drug busts or fugitive hunts. He traveled with the girlfriend of a high-ranking cartel boss and chatted with her on a burner phone 1,534 times in a two-year-period. Investigators found evidence he also tried to use sensitive law-enforcement databases to hunt down people for the gangsters and ran a stolen-vehicle-smuggling operation. Mitigating factor: Balian can now work as a Hollywood consultant for the next blockbuster narco-world flick. (RSM)

Henry Nicholas III

23) THIS GUY
Henry Nicholas III is the billionaire co-founder of Irvine’s Broadcom. He was arrested Aug. 7 after police found drugs in his Las Vegas hotel room. He and his girlfriend allegedly trafficked meth, coke, heroin and MDMA. Mitigating factor: Unlike at his former Laguna Hills mansion, there was no underground sex dungeon in which to hide from cops. (MC)

24) JUAN JOSE OROZCO
Our Creepy Boss Hall of Fame is ready for a new edition thanks to Original Mike’s general manager Juan Jose Orozco. Five female employees of the downtown Santa Ana restaurant and bar filed a lawsuit against owner Mike Harrah in 2014, accusing Orozco of groping, sexual battery, sexual harassment, and refusing to give them shifts if they didn’t line up to hug and kiss him at the end of each shift (blech!). The hefty jefe also allegedly told an employee who returned from maternity leave that he thought she looked better pregnant because “her ass was bigger.” When the woman complained about his comments, Orozco allegedly began to stroke her face with his hands without any invitation. The lawsuit against Original Mike’s and Orozco is still ongoing. Mitigating factor: Just as Dracula is allergic to garlic, women who work with this portly pervert should carry around a handful of something Orozco would never go near—some broccoli, perhaps? (Nate Jackson)

25) DEE ANDREWS
Long Beach’s notoriously crooked Sixth District councilman (now vice mayor) landed on our radar this year because of his dirty dealings with the legendary VIP Records, whose sign was removed from its rightful spot only to be replaced by a 7-Eleven. Dee Andrews not only supported this travesty, but he also helped facilitate it in his quest to Dee-stroy one of LBC’s most revered historic landmarks in the heart of his district. Last month, it was revealed through public records that Andrews even threatened fellow City Council member Lena Gonzales for showing support for the famed record store, saying, “Watch your back, or you’re going to get hit and killed by a bus.” Just the kind of behavior we’ve come to expect from Andrews. Mitigating factor: The hood knows better than to trust an old man whose only relation to G-Funk is his weird, grandpa smell. (NJ)

26) LONG BEACH POLICE DEPARTMENT
In September, Al Jazeera reported that for years, Long Beach police have been using an app called Tiger Text, which allows text messages to completely disappear after a conversation. The app was installed on hundreds of officers’ cellphones and essentially permitted police to discuss such sensitive matters as officer-involved shootings without any permanent record, letting cops get their stories straight before being interviewed by prosecutors. Mitigating factor: Whoops, Long Beach is the only city in LA County where officers are never even interviewed after shootings, but rather get to provide written statements, presumably while being coached by their superiors. (Nick Schou)

27) RONI BURNS-ELLIS
Here’s another typical entry from that benighted stretch of tarmac known as Los Alamitos: Roni Burns-Ellis, principal of McGaugh Elementary School, apparently just could not handle the fact that Nike hired Colin Kaepernick to represent its brand. So she shredded her Nike T-shirt and went on social media to brag about it. “My newest rag!” she posted on Facebook, along with a photo of the desecrated shirt. “When Nike signs an anti-American thug to represent their brand, I will not support, wear, purchase or endorse their product.” Mitigating factor: Burns-Ellis took down her post after 200 people started a Change.org petition against her. (NS)

28) ANDREW URDIALES
One of the most depraved serial killers in recent memory, Andrew Urdiales began his killing spree while serving as a Marine at Camp Pendleton in the 1980s. His first victim was Robbin Brandley, a Saddleback College student who had the misfortune of walking to her car in a dark parking lot when Urdiales, who had wandered on campus, brutally stabbed her to death. The crime remained unsolved for years until Urdiales was linked to several murders in the Midwest and confessed to killing Brandley. Mitigating factor: Urdiales now faces a death sentence for his crimes. (NS)

Michael Avenatti. Illustration by Bob Aul

29) MICHAEL AVENATTI
Yes, that Michael Avenatti. The guy seems to be too busy on TV mocking President Tiny and filing lawsuits on behalf of porn stars and other victims of Trump’s legendary public-relations network, which paid women for their stories so they could keep them out of the public light. The media loves Avenatti just like Trump because he gives good soundbites and headlines, but the public is starting to sour on his penchant for self-promotion. Mitigating factor: The Irvine Co. recently booted Avenatti and his law firm from their Fashion Island offices after the firm failed to pay rent. (NS)

30) CYNTHIA STRANGE
The 64-year-old was arrested in October on suspicion of murdering her 92-year-old mother, Ruth Strange, in Huntington Beach. The younger Strange was later charged with a sentencing enhancement of murder for financial gain. Mitigating factor: Nowhere to spend mommy’s money. (MC)

31) MIKE NESS
Social Distortion might not be writing any hits lately, but they can still give ’em. At a show in Sacramento in July, singer Mike Ness railed against Trump onstage, garnering cheers from all but one fan: Trump supporter Tim Hildebrand, who stupidly decided to give him the finger. After a brief verbal spat, Ness reportedly socked the shit out of him, leaving Hildebrand with two black eyes, a busted lip and a concussion. If you’re a fan of Social D and are thinking about battling the band over their politics, you better think twice before flipping the bird, or else you’re going to make your own bad, bad luck. Mitigating factor: Consider sporting some eyeliner like Ness did back in the day when he used to get his ass whooped by jocks. The memory of his childhood might make him more likely to connect with you instead of kill you. (NJ)

And the 2018 inductee into the SCARIEST HALL OF FAME is . . .

VICKI GUNVALSON
As the only cast member to last since day one of The Real Housewives of Orange County, which launched Bravo’s oft-duplicated Real Housewives franchise and has remained in the lineup for 13 seasons and counting, she is the tired, sandblasted face of the unreal reality show. We’ve watched (or hidden our eyes) as the (grand) mother hen from hell battled medical issues with her second husband by her side, renewed her marriage vows with him, and then still divorced him, blaming the show for being partly responsible. (Ya think?) She went on to take up with another slimeball over the objections of her cast mates and own children. It’s small wonder: He advised Gunvalson’s son-in-law to hit his wife to keep her in line. Vicks and the dude split up after it was revealed he faked having cancer, and he has since remarried. Speaking of failures, Gunvalson watched her own vodka brand dry up, and she once became the subject of an FBI investigation for sending a topless photo of herself to a 15-year-old girl. She’s currently in the arms of dirty, brutal Santa Ana cop-turned-unsuccessful Anaheim City Council candidate Steve Lodge. Mitigating factor: “I signed up for this!” Gunvalson told Us Weekly in 2012. “This is my reality—come on in through all the issues and struggles and trials—and good times!” (MC)

  1. You forgot Cincinelli and Wolfe, the fired Fullerton Police Officers who were 2 of 6 Fullerton Police Officers who beat the 37 year old, unarmed, homeless, schizophrenic man Kelly Thomas to death in 2011. As of October 2018, Wolfe & Cincinelli are still trying to get their FPD jobs back WITH 7 years of back pay. Remember, they were fired for violating Fullerton Police Policy. Has anyone ever in a workplace been given their jobs back with back pay for violating establish policy?! Kelly was doing nothing illegal at the time of his murder. He was brutally beaten, clubbed, tazzed, and suffocated to brain death. The entire time Kelly was begging and screaming for his life. His whole murder was captured on Fullerton city cameras and the DAR devices worn by these monsters. Remember when former Chief Hughes said the video “wasn’t that bad”?! It’s on youtube. Kelly’s family took him off of life support 5 days later when the doctors said there was no coming back from brain death. You should also include the entire jury in the Kelly Thomas criminal trial in a perpetual scary list for not convicting Ramos and Cincinelli in the criminal trial. As well as Tony Rackauckas for losing the case.

  2. Excellent list. Went too easy on Michael Gates! That immature, dead eyed, pasty pig faced, robot has been setting his reputation on fire lately. Gates is always boasting about being a Christian. How would he feel towards an OVSD school board candidate who supported a book burning of the bible? Would he and his wife host that high school drop out at a fundraiser in their home? Or is just the Quran that they are cool with burning? What disgusting, awful people. There has to be a decent Republican lawyer in Huntington Beach who wants this over paid position. Finding someone to run against this little over coifed dweeb next election should be a priority.

  3. Gracey is a racist and a boggit. She doesn’t even have a high school diploma, yet people want to see her in the Ocean View School Board. Her associates just got arrested by the FBI…..lets pray she gets locked up too.

  4. Gracey Van Der Mark doesn’t even have a High school diploma yet she is running for OVSB. Since the beginning of her campaign she has avoided Facebook because she refuses to answer questions about her past. She will pop up just to thank people for the help. Her campaign got money from people who want to continue building homes in HB. They want to buy school properties and develop on them. If you are against hate and HDD please do not for Crazy Gracey.

  5. HBsledgehammer content is and always has been freely available at https://sledgehammerarchives.wordpress.com. The incorrect dismissal of the ANTI SLAPP suit against Gina Tarvin Is now in the California State Court of appeals, a court which recently ruled…

     “A defendant who files an anti-SLAPP motion in a case which has otherwise been rendered moot by other rulings is entitled to have the motion heard, regardless of a disposition otherwise rendering the matter moot.” [with citations]

    So Tarvin is screwed once this comes up on the docket. Not half as screwed as she will be when the perjury charges are filed.

    Tarvin is finished politically. I decided to stand down and focus on things that really matter like catching some fun waves and enjoying time with my family.

    San Roman is still listed about this piece I wrote…which I guess is understandable…

    https://sledgehammerarchives.wordpress.com/2017/08/24/undercover-at-the-oc-weakly-day-1

    Cheers….

  6. Agree, David. Gracey is a festering boil on Huntington Beach. The Gates support of her as a viable OVSD board member further inflames. Mrs. Gates posted, “…I am going to vote for Gracey…” But they don’t live in the OVSD area. When asked about this important fact, Michael Gates stated they own property there. But don’t you have to actually reside in the area to vote in the area? That’s a sincere query. It got very confusing. Are the Gates lying to the citizens of Huntington Beach in order to influence a school board election? Are they publicly stating their intention to commit voter fraud? Or is Michael Gates just proving his incompetency yet again? Like when he went after a city council candidate that he does not favor and posted incorrect accusations of misappropriation of a city logo. He was promptly schooled by the public who seem to have a much stronger grasp on city laws. Then there are the mysterious claims in another post about, “very, very, ” threatening voice mails allegedly made by someone who beat Gates in court. Let’s hear those message! I mean, no self respecting attorney would destroy evidence, right? And HBPD did NOTHING? About voicemails that weren’t just “threatening” to the city attorney, but “very, very” threatening? What does it take to get some action on recorded threats? A third, “very”?

  7. When I last spoke to Chuck Johnson via Satellite Phone a few days ago, he was on a 70 foot boat anchored somewhere near Sumbawa in the Lesser Sunda Islands in Indo, preparing to score OC Weekly know he “doesn’t give two fucks” and that he will try to make it back in time to be there when the State of California Appeals court hears the appeal of his ANTI SLAPP suit against Tarvin. He added ” Let that asshole Gabriel San Roman know that the apostrophe above the “A” in his last name is probably bigger than his dick”. He also added that the content to HBSledgehammer is “freely available at https://sledgehammerarchives.wordpress.com/ .”
