UPDATE 2: Apparently the Gaines’ did talk to someone, as several I know up here have called and not received calls back. Jon Fleischman from Orange County was fortunate enough to get a “lengthy conversation” with Beth Gaines. He wrote about it here.
The latest: Beth #Gaines is running for Assembly District 4, trying to succeed husband Ted Gaines, likely winning Senate seat on Jan. 4.
All I have to say is that this is bizarre – and unique for the run up to any Assembly race I have seen in a long time.
Eric Hogue has also been hitting the rumors hard as well.
Thank you Governor Arnold and all the corporate losers that poured money in to stopping Prop 23.
Their desire for profit is allowing a bunch of despots to reign.
BTW – seem far-fetched… they are discussing mandating that cars get 60MPG by 2017. The CARB is out of control and companies that eyed profit in a defeat of Prop 23 enabled their tyranny… not to mention Arnold.
Once again – Deric Rothe repeats the lie about the solar power contract.
Once again – there is no mention of the other three Solar Power Contracts by the county that weren’t within a country mile of Uhler’s company.
Once again – Deric Rothe repeats the lie about a “sweetheart deal” for Tami Uhler’s job with the county… conveniently omitting the fact that that job was offered to two others first.
Once again – Deric Rothe brings up the issue about a deer hunt to thin the population of Deer and attributes the idea to Uhler. Rothe knows his audience are liberal gun-grabbers and wildlife lovers. Of course, there is no mention of the sharp increase of Deer vs Car accidents.
Who cares, when you are on an rampage against someone? Perhaps Deric Rothe is blaming Kirk Uhler for the revelation of his felony conviction? I can think of no other reason why the Auburn Journal would lie repeatedly – the Sacramento Bee doesn’t even pull crap like this.
If I was Brian Jagger – I’d read this phony editorial and say no thanks.
It is no secret. Deric Rothe, the flaming liberal editor of the Auburn Journal hates Conservatives and Republicans…
Case and point:
Article One - Tom McClintock Earmarked for Budget, Natural Resources Committee Posts in 2011.
Maybe Rothe’s pet cockroaches were trying to be clever with the title? Tom McClintock has famously signed the no new earmarks pledge – something Rothe and his crew have used repeatedly to get Scott Yuill, Rocky Rockholm and others in hot water with over the last two years.
Why? Because McClintock is regarded as someone who does not bring home the pork barrell spending within the district. Now, they turn the tables and use Earmark and McClintock in the same line… for search engines?
Article Number 2: Bag on Brian Jagger some more. In the process – try to tie Jagger’s maladies to Kirk Uhler and POOF guess who the Rothe’s Pet Cockroaches called this time?
Marlene George – queen of the Granite Bay NIMBY’s against Kirk Uhler. To Marlene’s credit – she did not take the bait thrown out by the AJ.
They could have called a number of people for balance, but this is the same paper that refused to correct a baltant lie about solar power contracts that were given to a company with a similar name – that was not owned by Uhler and Weygandt’s Brother.
Two-Plus years that lie has been allowed to stand. But, as I have written before – Deric Rothe is a convicted Cocaine Dealer who came to Placer County to find a soft-touch judge that restored his civil rights.
If Rothe started practicing journalism and stopped trying to destroy people with his newspaper – maybe I’d stop telling people about his felony conviction. Which, by the way Brian Jagger, Kirk Uhler and John Doolittle do not have – only Rothe.
