Janet Nguyen Fights Back Against Labor Unions

There is blog called Voice of OC in Orange County that has been touting themselve as a "non-profit investigative news agency".  It turns out that they are nothing more than a mouth piece for Labor Unions and the Democratic Party.  

The Blog received almost $800,000 from Unions and Democratic Party movers and shakers in the last 2 years alone. 

It is a pretty low tactic to claim to be neutral and unbias news  when matter of facts, everything is reported with a political agenda of helping Unions and Democratic Party and smearing whoever opposing the Unions and the Democratic Party.



WARNING – Voice of OC(EA) SMEAR Campaign against Senate Republican Candidate Janet Nguyen


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
September 5, 2013
Contact: Dave Gilliard (916) 626-6804

The self-described “non-profit investigative news agency” blog called Voice of OC has been conducting a relentless smear campaign geared towards keeping Republican candidate Janet Nguyen out of the California State Senate.

Recently they have focused on Janet's involvement in making the County Organized Health System (CalOptima) operations more accountable and transparent. One out of every 4 residents of Janet’s district utilize CalOptima. She is proud of her advocacy efforts on their behalf as a member of the CalOptima Board of Directors. Janet has also co-hosted annual Central County Health and Senior Expos with numerous public agencies, non-profits, community organizations and local businesses since 2010 – this was recently chronicled by the OC Register. The Expos, through the generosity of thousands of volunteers, have served over 10,000 children, adults and seniors who do not have access to preventative health care, generating substantial savings for the taxpayers as preventive health care needs are addressed before these residents resort to costly emergency room services.

Unfortunately, Janet’s efforts to reform CalOptima and outreach to the community have been mischaracterized by the Voice of OC blog whose only interest is to further their own political agenda through an organized smear campaign.

Some have asked why this Blog has taken such an interest in a smear campaign against Janet Nguyen?

The answer should be obvious. Just follow the money. A check of the Voice of OC’s most recent IRS filings shows that nearly all of their funds come from labor unions and Democrat donors. A full 63% comes from a single public employee union – OCEA. The remainder from Democrat/liberal donors or groups. These entities all have a huge stake in making sure State Senate Dems keep their 2/3rds super majority.

Here’s the rundown according to the Voice of OC’s own tax returns:

TOTAL FUNDS RECEIVED (report from latest 2 year period) : $797,040

Orange County Employees Association - $499,500 63%
California Endowment - $121,012 15%
Wylie Aitken (Former Chair Democratic Foundation of OC) - $85,000 10%
United Food & Commercial Workers - $25,000 3%
Former Democratic Senator Joe Dunn - $14,635 2%
*Major Democrat Donors: – $30,000 4%
Unnamed small donors – $21,956 3%
