Van Tran and Taxpayer's money
Just like any ethnic politicians, he is known to be able to get away with many things within his community. To mainstream, he is an anti-tax, pro-business but within his community, he promises more welfare, more medicaid, more medicare and more subsidized housing to his community. Why, because his strongest supporters in the Vietnamese-American community are an elderly populations in the late 50s and mid 60s.
Whatever the case may be, Van Tran is not immune to the the temptation of an arrogant incumbent who knows that he can get away with abusing the taxpayer's money when they don't know or realize that they have been duped. The OC Register wrote an interesting investigative article about Van Tran and his smart of taking advantage of the system to pocket millions of taxpayer's money in the last 6 years.
The majority of the voters sentiment in the Vietnamese-American community is very clear so far. This is the year of getting rid of the business-as-usual politicians who has displayed lack of concerns for not only his own community but his overall constituents.
