CA GOP candidate for governor is a registered sex offender, committed manslaughter

CA GOP candidate for governor is a registered sex offender, committed manslaughter

One of the four gubernatorial candidates introduced to at the California Republican state party’s semi-annual convention last week spent a decade in prison for convictions for voluntary manslaughter and assault with intent to commit rape, according to the LA Times.

Speaking before hundreds of delegates and supporters, Glenn Champ, 48, did not directly address colorful history, choosing instead to explain, “In my life, I’ve been held accountable because of my stupidity. I do not want anyone else to be enslaved because of their lack of knowledge.”

Champ was one of four candidates speaking at the convention – introduced by party chairman Jim Brulte – speaking between leading GOP gubernatorial candidates, former U.S. Treasury official Neel Kashkari, and state Assemblyman Tim Donnelly of San Bernardino County.

Champ’s criminal history is extensive. Court records show that he pleaded guilty to carrying a concealed firearm in 1992. In 1993, he was convicted of two counts of assault with intent to commit rape and was placed on the state’s sex-offender registry.

2. Looking at his record, he's from the Darrell Izza school of politics.

3. CA Dems - can you cross over and vote for this dude?

 

Exactly the kind of face we should put on the GOP. Having him in the GE campaign would be a GOTV godsend

5. Well here's your answer...

Under California's new nonpartisan blanket primary law, all candidates will appear on the same ballot, regardless of party. In the primary, voters may vote for any candidate, regardless of their party affiliation. The top two finishers — regardless of party — advance to the general election in November, even if a candidate manages to receive a majority of the votes cast in the primary election. Louisiana and Washington are the only other states with this system, a so-called "jungle primary".

There are 5 Ds, 7 Rs, 4 candidates from minor parties running, and 5 independents. So a minimum of 16 candidates, possibly as high as 21 if all the I's qualify. Looks like Donnelly was by far the one running second in the last poll. Brown will clobber him.

Cindy Sheehan is on the ballot as well for the Peace and Freedom Party. My guess is she'll get more votes than that guy.
