“The Anaheim Police association, currently under the ‘leadership’ (if you can call it that) of Kerry Condom, recruited Curt ‘Poll-Guard’ Pringle for a damning robo-call against the besieged Mayor Tom Tait. Tait might or might not be, depending on who you ask, the only real supporter of a proposed Police Oversight Committee, the idea of which came about after Anaheim Police drew wide-spread criticism for tactics used after a string of fatal shootings.
Pringle controls the Anaheim City Council majority as he helped to elect Kris Murray, Gail Eastman and Jordan Brandman. The good news is that Murray and Eastman are up for reelection in 2014.
Pringle is also the one pushing for the expenditure of several hundred million dollars to pay for a streetcar system that will only serve the needs of Disneyland.
In 1988 Pringle got in hot water when he was running for the State Legislature, when he and the OC GOP tried to scare Latino voters away from the p0lls by posting uniformed security guards, as reported by the L.A. Times.
