Steve Rocco, the perennial political candidate who previously served as a trustee of the Orange Unified School District, wants you to vote for him today in his race to unseat Janet Nguyen, the incumbent county supervisor from Orange County's first district. The beanie-and-sunglasses-wearing “retired educator,” who unverifiably worked a day or two as a substitute camp counselor a few decades ago, wants you to vote for him so bad that he (or his ketchup-stealing doppelganger) ripped up a Nguyen campaign sign at about 8:30 Sunday morning at the intersection of Washington Ave. and Broadway St. in Santa Ana.
The source lives in Santa Ana and is well familiar with Rocco, who is known to travel by bicycle throughout the environs. He said that he was driving in his car when he saw Rocco standing in front of the Nguyen sign. Rocco then looked both ways as if to see if anyone was watching him. Satisfied that he wasn't being monitored, the source said, Rocco then knocked down the sign, got on his bicycle and rode away.
