McKinley Jumps Republican Ship

The OC Republican Party went to bat for “Patdown” Pat McKinley when he ran for Fullerton City Council in 2010. With the help of his influential ‘pug friends like Dick Ackerman he secured the OCGOP Central party endorsement. Party volunteers even helped oversee Doug Chafee’s recount effort against him.

So what’s this we see, above? Oh oh. It looks like Patdown Pat is backing a Democrat, Sharon Quirk. Now that’s not very good, is it?

Right alongside old guard liberals Jan Flory and fellow massive pension suckateer, Chris Meyer.

And to Ed Royce, who created this twisted McMonster and foisted him on us all, all I can ask is: are you finally satisfied with the damage you’ve done?

  1. Wow. How’s he gonna explain this to the next meeting of the Raymond Hills Federated Republican Bluehairs?

  2. Royce is a big faker. Can’t wait until he is off the political map. He dad is also backing the ultility tax increase measure in Stanton.

  3. Why y’all picking on my buddy Pat? Just like the Recall No debacle, this will just be another epic waste of money. Does anyone really think I am going to beat Norby in November?

  4. When McKinley stood before Central Committee with Lois Godfrey by his side I stood up and told them that there was nothing about this guy that was conservative.

    1. The Repuglican women have never been 2 brite but really, they couldn’t see Patdown Pat coming a mile off? That’s pretty dumb.

  5. $200 contribution? Isn’t his pension income at least $200K? $200 is what, 1/10 of one percent?

    Let’s see:

    10 percent of 200K = 20K
    1 percent of 200k = 2K

    Yep, 1/10 of one percent – didn’t realize it costs so much to keep his pate so shiny smooth…

  6. If you want to watch something that I found interesting from last week’s city council meeting , start watching what unfolds at about 2:39 of the meeting where they’re discussing Item 18 which is the City Council attempting to award the lucrative tow franchise agreement for all police authorized tows.

    My favorite part of the video is at 2:48 when Pat McKinley starts getting heckled from the audience members who are laughing at Pat for having the audacity to vouch for a couple of Fullerton police officers who helped write the report which Frick and Frack are trying to not so smoothly persuade the Mayor to follow their recommendation, which of course favor McKinley and Bankhead’s political benefactors.

  7. Already voted. Silva Sucks. Norby Sucks too, but I didn’t want Silva to have it. I would vote against her even if she was running for sewer cleaner.

  8. Any political pig who accepted a dime of McKinley’s money would automatically be stricken from my list of potential votes. If I were a politician McKinley’s money would be radioactive and returned in the next day’s mail.

    What the hell was she thinking anyway? Or is this an example of any port in a storm? 🙂

  9. It would gain her more support and for sure attention if she returned McPensions lousy $200. But that would mean she would have to do something smart and the chances of her doing that are

    I’m still thinking

  10. For some, no doubt, this will be icing on the cake.

    Ultimately, he needs to go because he’s a cocky dumbass motherfucker who has repeatedly shown complete disregard for the safety of Fullerton residents, as well as utter contempt towards the lives of vulnerable disabled adults like Kelly Thomas.

    More importantly, history needs to record these specific reasons as an abject lesson to all politicians. Regardless of political stripe.

    The second this becomes hyper-partisan, is the second I lose interest.

    To that end, we wasn’t SQS added to the recall? Her sincerity strikes me as… artificial, to say the least.

    1. JHR, she did enough (very little) and said enough (very little) to slide by. Toward the end she seemed to see the light on the phony Redevelopment expansion.

      Other than that she’s right there with the Three Bald Tires.

        I think there is much more to it than that, but she is on her way out the door, recall or no recall and that is all that really matters.

  11. You also might want to check into why “Adan Ortega,” who was at one time affiliated with the Metropolitan Water District, wants to pluck down $1,000 of his money into Sharon Quirk Silva’s political campaign?

    1. You can ask me yourself if we ever meet in person and wish to ask. I left MWD over 7 years ago. I believe that water conservation should be built-in to our water supply planning. As it stands today, saving water, as we have seen in Fullerton, means pressure to raise rates. This is upside down. Developers (if we ever see a resurgence of that sector) that are willing to be “water neutral” by off-setting their demands by investing in conservation elsewhere in the city should be encouraged. Mayor Quirk along with others seeking public office and are registered Republicans get this. I have no scruples about supporting people with common sense of any party. In the meantime thanks for posting my link which should help others understand.

      1. Well, Adan, maybe you should review the projects in Fullerton approved by Mrs. Quirk and find out which ones were conservation friendly or sustainable.

        Of course the City was profiting 10% on our water bills under Quirky reign of error so there really wasn’t much emphasis place on anything except packin’ ’em in.

        Ask her about “Jefferson Commons” some day.

        1. I have Fred. It’s only been in the last year since the Water Rate Adhoc Committee was appointed that the factors that you and I seem to agree on with respect to city water revenues have come forth. During this time, Mayor Quirk-Silva, Councilman Whittaker and many on the Adhoc Committee (especially Greg Sebourn who is running for the council) itself have fought to stop the City’s practice of skimming 10% of the water revenues for things not related to the water system – thus over-charging rate payers. I can tell you as a member of that adhoc committee, that without Quirk-Silva and Whittaker we probably would have been shut-down already. When it involves doing the right thing for the public as a whole, I think we should encourage city leaders when they agree on a solution independent of their party affiliations and political philosophies. Through my limited means I will support candidates that do that and wish more people would too. In the meantime, I look forward to meeting you some day.

      2. .” Mayor Quirk along with others seeking public office and are registered Republicans get this”.

        So your donating a $1,000.00 of your own money to Mayor Quirk ( It’s actually Quirk-Silva) who is a registered Democrat, after stating here o the blog that only registered Republican’s seem to buy the nonsensical logic your selling?

        I think I’ll pass on the one-on-one chat as I have an extremely low tolerance for B.S.

        p.s You might want to ask Mayor Quirk-Silva next time you see her why she and the powers that be can’t set a better example for the rest of us to follow by turning off the huge water fountains in front of city hall that run all day long.

        1. Too bad. In the end the feeling would probably be mutual. Good luck trying to get solutions with the your way or the highway approach.

          1. Good luck in your quest to find people who “get you”, who apparently…

            “others seeking public office and are registered Republicans get this”

            Personally I am a No Political Party or N.P.P. and not a registered Republican which is probably why we wouldn’t jibe and why I don’t “get this”.

            No hard feelings o.k?

              1. o.k. so maybe your heart is in the right place and you do have a conscience.

                I do honestly understand quite a bit of your logic in that the water rates are higher for residents if we use less, which is exactly the opposite of the traditional utility companies like Edison and the Gas Co. which charge more if you use more, however I think you lost me in the turn when you started espousing that only “registered Republicans” seems to understand that a problem exists.

                What’s up with that?

                1. I believe that there are some Republicans and some Democrats who sometimes set aside party on some issues, like the invisible 10% water tax, to find common ground. When they do, I want to encourage it with my limited means, that’s all. You’ll see that as an independent, I support some Democrats (Quirk-Silva) as well as some Republicans (Sebourn). But like you, I am an independent voter who believes that both parties are missing it overall (or at least I don’t understand how they mean to fix anything). I personally favor the recall and hope that those who get elected to the council will help steer the city toward more transparent and open problem-solving, especially on the issue I’ve spent most time on: water. I hope that made sense.

  12. Not only did McKinley give her money but our illustrious former City Manager, Chris Meyer who is also a Rep. (like anyone believed that one) gave her money…I think we need to buy her some knee pads

  13. With so many fingers being pointed and accusations of complicity regarding the prearranged interpretation of the coded message to an exclusive telephone number in the FPD, why hasn’t there been any demand for the cancelation of the Slidebars’ business license??
    If it is proven that the persons that are involved in this wrongful reporting procedure, they should be prosecuted to the full extent possible.

    Perfect. Especially the part about your respect and admiration of the tireless volunteer work that Greg Sebourn does for Fullerton residents, and for your being a proponent of the recall.

    Amigos?

    1. Of course. If we independents can’t at least try to make sense to each other might as well drop out.

  15. I Can,t wait to see the drity SOB,S in the fed. pen. just like the one,s in New Orleans got 65 year,s of bubby LOVE HA HA !!!
