The Ackerwoman for Assembly Hall of Shame

On another thread Fullerton School Board member and seemingly clueless Ackerwoman supporter, Minard Duncan, popped up like a milk weed to question our apparent dislike of his fellow Ackerwoman cheerleader Mimi Walters.

This jump started an earlier idea to publish the names of all the lackeys, stooges and repuglicans who signed onto Ackerman Inc.’s Big Lie Tour of 2009.

This is a list of the elected officials that decided their best interests lay in the endorsement of Linda Ackerman for the 72nd Assembly District. Enjoy the asinine quotations at the bottom of the page and be sure to pick out your favorites on the list for special attention. We have helpfully highlighted in red the names of politicians in whose elections Fullerton voters will get to participate.

  1. Some wannabe councilman named Marty Burbank got behind Ackerwoman (no doubt pushed along by Royce, et al) as did former Chief Cue Ball. Apparently truth and honesty are situational virtues to Royce and his pals.

    Let’s remember next year!

  2. Ay ay ay. The DA is on that list. What’s that say for his ethical standards? Isn’t he supposed to look into the OC Fair mess?

  3. Speaking of ethics-challenged repuglicans, we can be extremely thankful that the little monster Diane Harkey doesn’t live in the 34th SD.

  4. My favorite: “When it comes to the safety of our children, Linda Ackerman will never back down.”- Former Fullerton Police Chief Pat McKinley

    1. Yeah, that was a good one. Never back down from what? That all-powerful hurt the children movement? What courage!

      1. …a spineless worm trying to score some cheap points with the Hackerman crowd. Not that I think I have any political future, but staying in good with these types will help me and pat sell houses.

        Marty Burbank in 2010!

        1. Please leave Leland alone. Okay, so he’s a complete zero now. But in 2002 he slew the eveil dragon that was my former mistress.

          In November 2002 I smiled down upon Fullerton from my doggie-bed in Heaven.

    Well, she wouldn’t even have had a chance to stand up since she didn’t even live here!

    1. Yes Dannemeyer is alive. I saw him on TV arguing against the redevelopment scam. He actually sounded kind of lucid. I should have known better.

  6. Mimi Walters was the honorary state chair for Proposition 90, the 2006 statewide initiative to dramatically restrict the use of eminent domain. But in this race she sided with the politicos of Orange County who make it their business to help Redevelopment carry out their abusive practices and policies in the name of what? It’s beyond disheartening that Republicans get down in the mud with the enemies of individual property rights. What about the people whom you’re supposed be serving?

  7. She was Ackerman’s Monday morning flight-mate to Sacramento for years. Of course the other thing was that Norby endorsed Harry Sidhu against Walters in the 34th last year.

    She should have told Linda to stay in Irvine (actually she did stay in Irvine) and supported the property-rights dude, regardless of the 34th election.
