GOP - Shooting Itself in Head

Tuesday, March 25, 2014 – 09:30 a.m.

Republicans are making it easy for democrats to pickup the 31st Congressional District this time around.

After all, GOP candidates shooting themselves in the head is commonplace these days.

Chabot, instead of focusing on the two frontrunning democrats, Pete Aguilar and Eloise Gomez Reyes, has instead decided to attack fellow republican Lesli Gooch.

Apparently trying to label Gooch a lobbyist is Chabot’s current agenda. Even though her experience dictates otherwise. How Gooch’s background of a congressional aide, with extensive policy experience, somehow translates into a lobbyist, is a bit perplexing.

It doesn’t take a political wizard to figure out that both Chabot, and Gooch, have to advance to the November runoff. Either of the two, advancing to face a likely well-funded democrat opponent, would have an extremely difficult challenge.

One would think Chabot could figure this out. But it doesn’t appear so.

On a side note. It seems Chabot has fanned out from his anti-drug non-profit work, and into political consulting.

Chabot Communications, has appeared on the campaign finance report of Assessor-Recorder candidate Bob Dutton. Sources say Dutton has engaged the company to do his fundraising.

One has to wonder what that healthy federal grant, to Chabot’s non-profit last year, actually paid for?
