Kring is a Conservative Republican; Brandman is a Liberal Democrat; Why Doesn’t OC Insider Seem to Care?

Posted by Lassie on October 26, 2012

I’d like to say, WTF to my fellow OC Political blogger, OC Insider.  This post is ridiculous: http://ocpolitical.com/2012/10/23/is-lucille-kring-in-it-to-win-it/

He/she/it writes:

OC Political readers have already seen a couple of Anaheim council candidate Lucille Kring’s mailers, which make it clear she considers Democrat Jordan Brandman her biggest competition. She’s hitting him for being a Democrat and taking union money, both of which are true.

It is a little much for Kring to blast Brandman for being “funded by the unions” when she was very happy to take the money of the Anaheim police officers union…

First off, OC Insider seems to be having literacy issues, as it isn’t the Kring campaign that’s sending those mailers, it’s the Republican Party of Orange County.  Kring is one of the Republican Party’s officially-endorsed candidates, and Brandman is officially endorsed by the Democratic Party of Orange County.  It’s the Republican Party’s job to elect Republicans and defeat Democrats, just like it’s the Democratic Party’s job to elect Democrats and defeat Republicans: it’s that simple!

OC Insider complains that it’s “a little much for Kring to blast Brandman for being ‘funded by the union’” (I’d note it’s the OC GOP blasting Brandman, not Kring blasting Brandman, but that’s beside the point).  I ran the analysis of the money: http://ocpolitical.com/2012/10/11/unions-give-money-to-all-major-anaheim-city-council-candidates-kring-got-least/

Kring got $500, Brandman got $20,700.  Brandman got more than 41 times the union money that Kring did.  Who on earth could be bought with $500? But $20,700 is a nice chunk of change.  And who knows how much more Brandman is getting in union IEs.

Kring is officially endorsed by the Republican Party of Orange County, the Orange County Register, and Mayor Tom Tait.  Brandman is officially endorsed by the Democratic Party of Orange County, numerous labor unions, and Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez.  It’s that simple.

  1. Be real said

    Is getting the least public employee union money like being a little bit pregnant?

    Actually, liberal democrats don’t like Brandman too much because he’s a corporate whore, and tied too closely to the Masters of the Universe and the corrupt consultant class.
