Sunday News Notes: Reg Slams Loretta Sanchez

Local news highlights include:

Register against Loretta Sanchez but drags out marijuana stance
The editorial staff of the OC Register has declared itself for congressional candidate Van Tran, a Republican; U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina, a Republican; and Whitman, yep, a Republican. "From our freedom values perspective," the Reg folks opined, Tran is superior to Loretta Sanchez, the incumbent who has supported Democratic policies that have "damaged the country." On Fiorina: "Californians deserve a change." On Whitman: She "is focused, no-nonsense." They also picked sides on all the state propositions, but declared their view on the pro-marijuana one as "pending." 

The rotting of America, part 634
A group of Los Angeles sheriff's deputies apparently desperate for a group sadomasochistic, homosexual experience have been accused of pulling a jail inmate out of his cell, yanking down his underwear to expose his genitals and pepper-spraying the man's penis and anus, according to a story by Robert Faturechi of the Times. Not surprised? Right, well, sexually-demented deputies obviously is not the breaking news here. Here's what is: Sheriff Lee Baca says he will no longer wait for a district attorney's office probe into such complaints because the DA's office is lazy or uninterested. Baca's says he's going to do his own internal affairs investigation. The deputies' union objects.

Yes, sign here and you'll get a badge, a gun, pepper spray and sadomasochistic experiences with trapped, nude men.

​Above the law?
Oh, you gotta love it: The folks at Friends For Fullerton's Future blog recently caught a man stealing campaign signs. That's a crime and they've got the photographic proof. Even better, the man drove off in a van registered to a business tied to city council candidate Roland Chi. Oops. This could present a problem. OC prosecutorial heavyweights Mike and Susan Kang Schroeder back Chi. Will the thief get a pre-election pass?
