O.C. Clerk Recorder Tom Daly has been caught with his hands in the proverbial cookie jar. Daly sent an unsolicited e-mail to a lot of his Clerk-Recorder employees inviting them to his Oct. 19 fundraiser. Daly held a fundraiser even though he has yet to commit to running for the 69th Assembly District.
What is more telling is that the e-mail was sent on a weekday (Wednesday) at 9:07 am. First of all, why is he soliciting his employees? Secondly, what the hell is he doing campaigning during work hours?
It is highly unlikely that Daly sent the email himself. He is known to be lame when it comes to computers, so it is likely that this email was the work of any one of his PR hacks – Jean Pasco, Jordan Brandman or his Assistant Clerk-Recorder Renee Ramirez.
Daly will say that he took time off that day but his own employees say he hardly ever shows up to work.
Most employees don’t support Tom Daly for Clerk-Recorder, much less Assembly.
After unsubscribing to this e-mail list via the link provided in the e-mail, they still got a follow-up email reminding them of his fundraiser – during business hours of course.
I wonder how many of his employees actually attended his event? Did they feel pressured to attend? Is this even legal?
