Gloria' People Tearing Down All Whitburn's Signs
As an official S Dub (Stephen Whitburn supporter) I pay close attention to the signage. I noticed that Gloria's people had torn down all the Stephen Whitburn signs along Park Blvd---How do I know it was Gloria people, because miraculously all the Todd Gloria signs next to Stephen's still remain. They even tore down the Stephen Whitburn/Obama/proposition 2 (for the animals) signs that were painted by my 8year old neighbors and given to me to post. What kind of heartless crew is behind this campaign?
To me, it tells the whole story. Todd can't play fair. He knows his people are doing this. They do it all the time. The sign in my front yard was torn up many times. The sign in front of my friend's yard on Park and Robinson was torn up many times. He doesn't say anything to his followers like, "lets win this fair and square and not sink to low levels of vandalism". He doesn't because he and his campaigners have decided that they will do ANYTHING to win even if that means cheating or lying.
Whitburn HQ has reports from people of Todd knocking on their door and telling outright lies about Stephen, saying "he is trying to buy this campaign and it will all be paid for by developers". I have first hand reports of his people lying about Todd being the Democratic party choice when he is not--it wasn't even close Todd. You were voted down by an overwhelming majority, so stop lying to people. They wouldn't even consider you seriously because of all your Republican money! But don't worry, you definitely have the endorsement of the GOP. After all you are at the top of the Building Industry's voter guide.
And stop telling people Donna Frye is behind you. She is not. She is 100% behind Stephen because he has demonstrated integrity.
And your flyers are laughable--I mean a firefighter in full gear holding back a massive fire--as if the October wildfires came anywhere close to District 3, and as if this firefighter is waving his big hose around, thinking "man I wish Todd was in charge of this District", and as if its even actually the firefighters who support you--its not--its their union leader Ron Saathof who was just indicted on more corruption charges the other day and it is Battalion Chiefs who make over $250,000 a year protecting their way over inflated salaries and pensions, when we can't afford to pay rookies anything and we don't even have enough money for the firefighting equipment we really need.
And your flyer with a giant picture of the Democratic Donkey saying the "Democratic Choice", that is dishonest and misleading when the Democratic Party decidely said they did not want you representing them. Oh and I just got your latest today "Todd Gloria, the Hometown Democrat", yeah hometown in that you were bought and paid for by the developers in the way that only San Diego can.
After this is over you will be lucky if the Democratic Party ever accepts you after you intentionally tried to make people think you were being endorsed by the Democratic Party.
Todd has figured out the only way he can win this race is with trickery and lying straight out of the George Bush GOP playbook. I mean really Todd, if you really have what it takes to win, then win based on merit, not lies and vandalism. To me it speaks volumes about my gut instinct not to support you and to support Stephen.
Hillary lost the Presidential nomination because she would do ANYTHING to win and Todd is doing the same thing except even worse. I will be embarrassed if Todd is representing me in District 3.
If anyone sees Gloria's people tearing down Whitburn signs break out your cell phone cameras and snap a picture. I want to see this slimeball's face who doesn't respect ANYONE'S freedom of speech. I have a feeling I know who it is and so does Todd.
