Jeff Gorell #15 : Democratic Choice!?
The Honesty Counts team independently reviewed campaign mailers and other media in the November 8, 2022 General Election in Ventura County, debunking what was false. This mailer for candidate Jeff Gorell stood out for its deception which was furthered by the tactics used by the Independent Expenditure Committee that sent it.
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.
We predicted that this group deceptively assumed our name to fool voters. As of this writing, Gorell has not disavowed this group, apparently believing that identity theft is kosher if it aids his ambition of changing the Board of Supervisors to a Republican majority.
Abe says, "If Gorell is the clear choice for Democrats, then SPAM is the choice for vegetarians."
