On July 10 of this year I posted an article on this blog entitled “Shouldn’t Daly be investigated for Bustamante-like behavior.”  Today it hit the fan for Daly, as “County officials are moving to hire a law firm to check into a host of sexual harassment and corruption allegations against County Clerk-Recorder Tom Daly, who is currently the frontrunner to become Orange County’s next State Assemblyman for the 69th District,” according to the Voice of OC.



The letter alleges that Daly has handed out promotions and engaged in inappropriate behavior with at least four female workers at the Clerk Recorders’ Office, which it refers to as “ Tommy’s Girls or Tommy’s Angels.”

 

Daly is a Democrat running for the 69th Assembly District.  He is running against Orange County employee Jose Moreno.  This news now puts Daly in very hot water and it could launch Moreno to victory in November.

  1. Can you say Assemblyman Moreno?

    Hopefully the jackass at the Liberal OC will delte his comments about Daly, “BEING 100% clean of any such allegations”.

    Just more of the same.

  2. Looks like County School Board Guy Hammond could have been in the State Assembly but now it will Be Sr Moreno!

  3. Meanwhile, David Benavides hopes this wave of “CHEATERS” doesn’t catch traction.

    NSA is the ONLY one paying attention to the Mayoral race, here. All eyes on Anahiem’s mess.

    I was warmed by this comment today:

    “Carpetbagger, we like Cafe’ not Coffee, We like Futbol not Football, but the women love Novela’s. Imagine the first day of school at CARR MIDDLE SCHOOL, when 700 girls are asking Emily Benavides “Te engano tu espouso?”

    Man that’s going to be a mess.

    1. Slander is a tort, or civil law, meaning a civil lawsuit can be brought against someone who is accused of slander. In the United States certain facts must be established for someone to be found guilty of slander. Assuming there is proof that the defendant uttered the alleged statement, the statement must be overheard by someone other than the subject or other “privileged” parties. Slander must also clearly identify the party or entity, and the intent must be malicious.

      Watch what you are saying and writing, it can get you into touble.

      As noted, Mrs Benavides is not part of the campaign, so your inclusion is stepping over the line.

      1. To whom were you addressing your comment? I assume you meant to address it to one of our commenters.

        Slander by the way refers to the spoken word. Libel refers to matters in print.

        As for Mrs. Benavides, you are right, she is not part of David’s campaign, which is the point, isn’t it?

        1. My reply was to “carpetbagger”

          If you would reread his/her post and the 2nd to last paragraph, you will see how the poster is getting carried away and has crossed the line in calling out Mrs. Benavides at her place of employment.

          As editor you have a right to edit and delete the part over the line and rebuke “carpetbagger” for not staying within the box of mudslinging politics.

  4. EDITOR’S NOTE: I altered this comment to remove personal names as the people referenced below are involved in the Daly investigation.

    Concerned County Employees? Or demoted HR employee D**** C******? This anonymous letter you wrote makes me wonder if you are still upset that you were removed from HR and made an Office Specialist. Missing your perks? I for one am glad that you are no longer HR. Why else would you know so much about these girls? As I recall Ms. C****** M*** went to you as her HR representative to inform you that she had requested a leave of absence. She did not quit her job as you accused her of in your anonymous letter. You then proceeded to inform numerous staff members that she wanted a leave of absence to chase a man to Northern California. Aren’t you suppose to keep the staff’s requests confidential? That is very unprofessional.

    While you were also in HR you would take extended lunch breaks. Some of those lunch dates where with numerous staff members including A******* G*****. Rumor has it that you two are no longer friends. Maybe that is why you decided to talk trash on her. Also, if it were true that she is one of Daly’s Angels then maybe she would not be an Office Specialist, a position that she just got promoted to because she was a staff assistant for five years. As I recall you never applied for any position. You were just brought in by P****** as his assistant. By the way, she does speak spanish you can ask anyone in room 106 who actually works with A*******. In the past you have complained about M***** and C**** H***’s relationship yet you had a relationship with A***** C******* while you were in HR. While I do agree that some of the things that happen at the Clerk-Recorder’s Office are unjust; these are serious allegations that you are accusing Daly and these women (who you claim to be friends with) of. You are affecting their work and personal lives. And why? Just to get back at Daly for demoting you? The way I see it; if Daly would have kept you in HR these posts and anonymous letters would never have surfaced. The only person that can’t be trusted is a hypocrite like you D****.
