Why is Lou Correa a Better Republican than Lucille Kring?

Kring: Didn't get message

Why Republican Lucille Kring is even bothering to campaign for the state senate from central Orange County is beyond me.

Didn't Kring get the message that many OC Republican establishment players back Democrat Lou Correa?

Well, Lucille?

]
Her hearing probably suffers from some abnormality due to sitting in
close proximity to Curt Pringle, her old, shifty-eyed Anaheim city
council colleague, who–get this!–is a conservative Republican that
loves big wasteful government projects.

(The current lame governor appointed Pringle, a well-oiled lobbyist by trade, to
chair a government entity designed to spend billions of dollars on an
unnecessary rail project while the state is bankrupt.)

Anyhow, back to Kring and Rev. Lou Sheldon's bitch, Correa. [For that story, go HERE.]

The all-conservative suits and wine lunch gals at the Orange County
Business Council have given voters a treat today with their independent
expenditure mailer on behalf of . . . yep . . . not the Republican, Kring, but
Correa.

They wrote that they have an “important message,” so listen up.

“Senator Correa has worked closely with businesses to create and protect
jobs right here at home,” the ad claims. “He understands the connection
between a strong business environment, sustainable infrastructure and
job creation . . . [This next part is underlined.] No one has worked
harder than Lou Correa for our community.”

After all that, they then go on to accuse him of being “an independent voice in Sacramento.”

The ad has no picture of Correa, but offers us the delightful smile
[similar to the face a cat anxious for a meal would wear] of Lucy Dunn, president of the
lobbying outfit.

But Correa's not just the man in business lobbying circles, he's also big with the California Optometric Association. That group put a piece in local mail boxes today too. The over-sized postcard encourages voters, er, residents to attend a free, September 25 community health expo with the senator.

“Senator Lou Correa working [sic] with his community for better healthcare,” the message declares.

But the group didn't expressly call for the senator's re-election–wink, wink.

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.
