Folks in Little Saigon know they have to bribe Janet Nguyen with bags of money
The state’s Fair Political Practices Commission is investigating nearly a dozen people for political money laundering in connection to campaign contributions to county Supervisor and state Senate candidate Janet Nguyen according to Thy Vo and Nick Gerda at the Voice of OC.
The FPPC has issued 11 subpoenas to donors who made contributions to the political committee Friends of Supervisor Janet Nguyen between 2011 and 2012, as part of an investigation involving political contributions made in the name of persons other than the true contributor, according to court records, according to the Voice of OC.
The supervisor has drawn scrutiny for the number of unemployed people giving large contributions to her campaign. Between 2009 and 2012, the committee took contributions from nearly 60 unemployed donors.
So unemployed people are donating gobs of money to Nguyen? Hello – that sounds like money laundering! The way this works is big donors give money to small fish, in this case unemployed small fish, and then they contribute it to Nguyen and probably get a small bonus for their efforts.
This of course is what we have come to expect from Orange County’s most corrupt supervisor.
