Steve Lodge, Anaheim Council Candidate/Brutal Cop, Fails to Get OC GOP Endorsement Despite Being GOP Establishment Choice
Can it be that the Republican Party of Orange County is finally allowing brain matter to enter their skulls?
Last night, the Central Committee announced their endorsements--this following a meeting a couple of weeks back in which candidates did a song-and-dance before them about why they were the true conservative candidate while their opponents were evil Loretta Sanchez lovers. One of those candidates was brutal cop Steve Lodge, who's running for Anaheim City Council. He's the favored candidate of former Anaheim mayor/Whitest Man Alive Curt Pringle, failed blogger (and sex-victim outer) Matt Cunningham, and others of the GOP establishment.
Despite such heavy hitters, Lodge wasn't able to secure an endorsement--mostly because there are pictures of him as a bona fide Loretta lover.
You'll have to visit the indispensable Save Anaheim blog for the photographic proof, but the wacko Central Committee went gangsta on Lodge last time around, so much so that Lodge withdrew his endorsement request last night during the final round (the endorsements for Anaheim city council went to some guy named Brian Chuchua and former councilwoman Lucille Kring, who used to be a good person but has transformed into a Know Nothing).
All together now: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Of course, this doesn't mean Anaheimers are out of the woods yet when it comes to Lodge; he still does have the support of Disney and the powerful Taormina family. But how pathetic of a candidate are you supporting when his own party won't stand by him?
