Brown Picks Up Another Police Endorsement

No backroom deals or pension protection promises from Jerry (unlike Meg).

California Coalition of Law Enforcement Associations Representing 80,000 Officers Endorses Attorney General Jerry Brown for Governor

13 October 2010

SANTA ANA - Adding to the growing list of endorsements from California's law enforcement community, the California Coalition of Law Enforcement Associations (CCLEA), representing 80,000 peace officers, announced today that they have endorsed Jerry Brown for Governor.

"Meg Whitman is attempting to cover up her non-existent record on fighting crime by launching dishonest and misleading attacks against Jerry Brown, the state's chief law enforcement officer," said CCLEA President and Association of Orange County Deputy Sheriffs President Wayne Quint. "Attorney General Jerry Brown's record on fighting crime speaks for itself. For decades, Jerry Brown has cleaned up our streets and as the state's top cop he has been tireless in his efforts to make our communities safe. We enthusiastically endorse his candidacy for Governor."

CCLEA represents 80,000 peace officers throughout the state and is California's largest umbrella organization of law enforcement associations. In fact, CCLEA represents more than 40 peace officer groups, including the California State Fraternal Order of Police, Southern California Alliance of Law Enforcement, Los Angeles County Professional Peace Officers Association, Los Angeles Schools Police Association, Deputy Sheriffs Association of San Diego County, San Diego Police Officers Association, Kern Law Enforcement Association, Deputy Sheriff's Association of Santa Clara County, Riverside Deputy Sheriffs Association, San Jose Police Officers Association, Ventura County Professional Peace Officers Association and many others.

Today's announcement follows recent endorsements from the California Police Chiefs Association, whose members provide front line law enforcement services to more than three-quarters of the state's residents, Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca and the Peace Officers Research Association of California (PORAC).

As Governor, Jerry Brown signed hundreds of tough anti-crime measures, including laws compelling criminals to pay restitution to their victims, the ‘Use A Gun Go To Prison' law, and mandatory sentences for rape, sale of heroin and PCP, violent crimes against the elderly and child molestation. Brown also established and funded the Career Criminal Prosecution Program, the Career Criminal Apprehension Program and the Crime Resistance Task Force.

As Mayor of Oakland, Jerry Brown was a leader in the campaign to defeat Proposition 66, an attempt to dismantle California's three strikes law. Mayor Brown also implemented a variety of innovative crime-fighting strategies, including a curfew for parolees to prevent late-night violence. By the time he left office, Oakland's police force was over 800 strong, a 25 percent increase over 1998, and crime had dropped more than 13%.

As Attorney General, Jerry Brown has made California safer by aggressively prosecuting drug dealers, gang members and corporate criminals - all while reducing his operating budget by almost 10%. Brown's office has arrested more than 6,000 criminals, recovered 5,800 guns, closed 400 meth labs, and doubled the DNA database.

Brown's office is also cracking down on fraudulent home loan practices, loan modification companies, and investment rating firms. The Attorney General is going after companies profiting from the mortgage crisis and labor law violators, and has recovered more than half a billion dollars from Medi-Cal fraud and elder abuse cases. Brown's office even successfully thwarted the Bush Administration's attempt to gut California's robust environmental laws.

Griff Harsh, the husband of California gubernatorial candidate Nutmeg Whitman, acknowledged in a statement on Thursday that “it is possible” he received and wrote notes on a letter from the Social Security Administration back in 2003, regarding the former Housekeeper/Maid. The Harsh/ Whitman household then fired their housekeeper in June 2009 (after nine years of service), when Nutmeg handlers decided that she was an election liability.

And now the Jill Armstrong, a former full-time nanny of the Harsh/ Whitman dungeon, came to the defense of the Housekeeper/Maid and told the San Francisco Chronicle that she believes Diaz’s claim because she “know[s] the family” and “what it was like.”

Meg, Meg, Meg, where do I start, you have reportedly spent $140 million of your own money to get elected Governor but you couldn’t use some of it to get your housekeeper (after nine years of service) some legal help to get her papers, and worse you lied about it. Wow, what a WITCH, of course I meant it with a “B”.



But your comments on holding employers accountable for hiring undocumented workers real takes the cake, I assume you exempt yourself and your husband, or will you be turning yourself in.

Meg on holding employers accountable:

Meg you think you can buy the election, but what puzzles many is if you real cared and loved California then why not do your civic duty and vote, seems more rhetoric than anything else.

In good times we might give you a try but not in our disaster mode that we find ourselves in after that so-called outsider Independent Republican, named Arnold Schwarzenegger (sold to us by radio personalities John and Ken), ruined our state, yah we will trust another one of you liars, think not. And another thing nine years this maid was in your house, in your house and you failed to learned this major thing about her, come on this sounds like a huge lie that no one can believe in.

Ebay paid out $200,000 because Nutmeg assaulted an employee, so it’s not the first time she has mistreated an employee. Good luck winning Nutmeg, money will buy you admiration from the majority just from the Gay Old Party (GOP), but not from all of California.

Ok Montana Parrot....just for you loser..................

Go ahead and support the senile old fool. Meg wiped the floor with him last night. He came off as a doddering old coot, like the crazy uncle you keep in the attic....If you notice, those stories you posted are NO WHERE in local news, or statewide, those are the only ones that count. I could care less what MSNBC says, they're national, and DON'T VOTE in Calif.....spin, spin, spin. Live in fantasy land my friend....we'll see who is right on Nov 2.

Yes Meg is fugly but so are lots of people in middle America and many of the Republicans who vote for her, her looking like a giantess linebacker with a neck the size of a tree trunk and folks on her neck and forehead, that giant high forehead, make her look just like the guys she emulates. ON a state level I can see her with Cooley as AG, their puppet Clown clone, the Zine and the PPL's Paul Weber and their political consultant, waster of their money Don Novey, the two County BOS fat suburban white dudes, and THIS blog's owner.

(Walter Moore's getting there, give him a decade to pack on the pounds, Phil, Phil -- you gotta eat more to catch up, boy! Maybe if you start to make some money you won't have to run around so much in clown costumes and become rich and fat and happy and smugly narrow-minded and cynically calculating and ambitious, too! You're still too thin and naive!)

Oops, I meant below that Whitman has FOLDS not "folks" on her neck and forehead but hey, she COULD fit just about anything in there, and who'd want to get close enough to find out?

Meanwhile Fiorina's the lost sister of the big butch chick on Glee, her catty remarks about Boxer's hair aside, she should check out hers.

Heck, if Jerry can fit police chiefs in his pocket, Meg can sure fit them in the folds of her neck.

But come on, Jerry! We know you're smart and deserve some leeway for your gaffes because you're earned it but REALLY NOW, we're in the age of the 'net and iPhone, learn how to use the PHONE!!!!

And remember, the Republican heads of cops unions and their Republican advisors who wait 3 weeks to release your tapes and and most reporters hustling for a story and are known as a caste to have NO ethics anymore -- are not your friends!

The days of "gentlemen's politics" when you started, are over! The Shallmans/ John Thomases and their BIG BROTHERS have perfected the art of playing dirty while wasting tons of money on PR-generating phony moral crusades, and crushing anyone who is tricked into supporting them but is NOT on the "Teabagger right!" No one cares about substance anymore, experience is a sin and empty ambitious blathering about promises you can't keep, because you don't know how to play the game, are the order of the day!

With voters AND reporters having the attention span of gnats, no one keeps liars to their promises and talking out of both sides of your mouth is what gets you money from whoever you're talking to! The newbie Republicans show us that and are more "politicians" than you can ever be~ chuck your integrity and pander, pander!
