A mailer sent to Democratic voters paid for by the phoney-baloney IEC supporting Jeff Gorell and opposing Claudia Bill-de la Peña says that he is "Your Democratic Choice for Supervisor". On the back of the mailer it says "THE CLEAR CHOICE FOR DEMOCRATS". This implies that Gorell is a Democrat.
This implication is false. Gorell is Republican, not Democratic.
A mailer supporting Jeff Gorell paid for by Ventura County Republican Party claims that Measures A and B would have raised gas prices for residents by 20%.
This claim is wholly made up.
A mailer paid for by the Ventura County Republican Party prints an uncredited news story of a residential burglary in order to support Jeff Gorell and oppose Claudia Bill-de la Peña for Ventura County Supervisor.
On October 4th, Jeff Gorell tweeted that he took the pledge to not take contributions from the oil, gas, and coal industry.
The facts don't bear this out.
Gorell's Form 460, which can be accessed on the Ventura County Public Portal for Campaign Finance Disclosure here, shows in his most recent filing that he took $1,500 from Sempra Energy, Inc.
Jeff Gorell's twitter handle describes himself as a dad and as a candidate for Ventura County Supervisor, then lists his job history leaving out that he was Deputy Mayor of Los Angeles until January of this year.
This is a deliberate omission.
Another letter to the editor in the VenturaCounty Star asserts that "Jeff [Gorell] will bring his experience and amazing background into creating some balance in Sacramento."
A letter to the editor in the Ventura County Star from the professional firefighters union lists Jeff Gorell's job experience--"our State Assemblyman from 2010 to 2014"--leaving out that he was Deputy Mayor of Los Angeles from 2015 until January of this year.
This appears to be a deliberate omission of Gorell's history.
A letter to the editor in the Ventura County Star asks, "Do we want more of the same representation in Sacramento in the next four years that has brought us to where we are now?" and goes on to state that Jeff Gorell "is willing to fight for us in Sacramento."
This is a logical fallacy.
A Statement of Organization has been filed with the State of California with the name, "Honesty Counts Supporting Jeff Gorell & Opposing Claudia Bill-De la Pena for Supervisor 2022".
This appears to be a deceptive attempt to fool voters.
