Let it go; you lost this one. Let the voters decide this.

Cop Out

Unfortunately, Judge Gray abdicated his roll to call the balls and strikes as he sees them. I have no interest in the Orange City Council election, other than to see it decided by the rules. Judge Gray has been an erst while candidate for Congress, and spends a lot of time trying to not be a judge, and maybe he should do something else. He sure was gun shy about making the tough decision here. Its too bad. He gets a nice paycheck to makes the tough calls and he didn't earn his paycheck this time around. I hope the DA gets a copy of the hearing transcript and takes appropriate action to discourage other candidates from mocking the election laws the way Rudat has.

Oh please, this is the "Red County" blog. You know the one who supported Bush for president and he stole his first election. Why wouldn't it be ok for her to break a few rules as long as she is the right color (Red)?

Here's a rule she broke---as Art would say, a little parajito told me that her supporters went on private property--church property--without permission and put her flyers on the cars at one of the Catholic Church's in town on Sunday. If she and her supporters are that interested in contacting churchgoers, they can stand at the entrance and exits on the sidewalks and hand them leaflets. If this episode is any indication of the lack of respect for private property rights she'll have if elected, people in Orange need to be concerned.

We've all had the overzealous supporters or inexperienced volunteer coordinator who think that flyering cars at church is a good campaign strategy. Not a big deal.
I do enjoy reading Jubal's attempt to spin this courtroom loss.

Anon@10:23 p.m.:

The only spin you'll hear is coming from the Rudat camp. Did you attend the hearings? I did and I'm posting my honest analysis of what happened. I'll post the transcript when I get it, and you can make your own judgment.

It was a courtoom victory for Carol Rudat -- but it was a case of getting away with something because the judge didn't want to get involved.

Carol's attorney, Alan Burns, used to work in the Orange City attorneys office, when Dave Rudat was City Manager...
