The Bloggin Committee to BAN the Political Carpetbag(ger) in the 51st Assembly District, approves of this message below from the "Luis Lopez for Assembly Campaign"---Scott Johnson.
Ban the Political Carpetbag(ger), Save an exploited Burrocrat.
Burrocrats UNITED against Riverside Carpetbagger Jimmy Gomez.
Over the last 48 hours, Jimmy Gomez's campaign was hit with a heavy dose of truth in regards to contributions Jimmy Gomez has taken from registered NRA lobbyists.
Compounding Jimmy Gomez's problems is the fact that at the time of the donations to Gomez, NRA lobbyists were leading efforts to weaken laws against carrying weapons across state lines and to allow importation of pelts and trophies of slaughtered polar bears.
Research gathered from polling conducted for the Luis Lopez campaign indicates that the NRA and links to its efforts are a very strong negative (click here to see memo) in this heavily Democratic district, covering Northeast Los Angeles and East L.A.
Lopez laid out his opponent's lapse in a mailer to district voters.
The Lopez mailer was reinforced in a district wide robo-call from a community member touched firsthand by gun violence and highlighting Jimmy Gomez's funding by NRA lobbyists.
Call to AD51 voters (English and Spanish):
"My name is Nadine Trujillo. I'm a long-time business owner here in our community. My husband Michael was murdered before my eyes here in Los Angeles. As a victim of gun violence, I am outraged by the fact that Assembly candidate Jimmy Gomez is being funded by thousands of dollars from registered lobbyists of the National Rifle Association.
"I am a strong believer in gun control and resent the power of the NRA lobby to buy off politicians and stop sensible gun-control measures, even to weaken and undo California law.
"So when you vote, please join me and other victims of crime and gun violence by voting NO to Jimmy Gomez and NO to the NRA lobbyists funding his campaign. We deserve much better than Jimmy Gomez and politicians who depend on and bend to the gun lobby. And we don't need another vote for gun-lobby extremists in Sacramento."
Over the past 48 hours, the Gomez campaign has not responded to the issues concerning his funding by NRA lobbyists, while the truth about this issue is reverberating across the district as voters are now casting ballots.
"PAC Laundryman" Gomez will shill for any Special Interest that contributes, without reservations. Is that some the 51 AD needs representing us in Sacramento. Support our home grown candidate, who's principles are rooted in his native soil.
