..'SANCHEZ's spouse seeks divorce'..

...By Martin Wisckol and Dena Bunis/Orange County Register

Rep. LORETTA SANCHEZ is being sued for divorce by her husband of 14 years, securities broker STEPHEN BRIXEY, who cited "irreconcilable differences" in court filings.

BRIXEY, 42, filed for divorce in San Diego in January, but word of the proceedings has been kept quiet even among some of those closed to the Democratic Santa Ana congresswoman.

In response to a press inquiry, her office issued a statement Tuesday.

"LORETTA and STEPHEN have reaced an amicable resolution on all matters surrounding this step," it said. "They remain close friends and their divorce will become final shortly." Calls to BRIXEY's attorney were not returned.

SANCHEZ, 44, shot to fame in 1996 after reverting from her married name to her maiden name and upsetting incumbent Republican ROBERT K. DORNAN in the heavily Latino central part of the country. She steadily has gained influence in Washington and helped her sister, LINDA SANCHEZ, win a Los Angeles congressional seat in 2002.

SANCHEZ is being challenged this year by Republican ALEXANDRIA CORONADO, a member of the Orange County Board of Education, considered a long shot because of Democrats'strong advantage in the district's voter registration.

Sandra Sutphen, a political science professor retired from Cal State Fullerton, said news of the divorce is unlikely to influence the election's outcome.

"Thirty-five years ago, divorce was a big deal, but times have changed," Sutphen said.

...Court filings, which gave no description of specific problems, said the couple have been separated since Dec. 30. It also noted that BRIXEY had been living in San Diego County for at least three months before the Jan. 15 filing. BRIXEY and SANCHEZ appeared together on her holiday greeting card in December.

NEVER FORGET that Rep. LORETTA SANCHEZ has NEVER returned $1,000 in China Army Money she received during her 1996 Congressional Campaign, despite her telling us over and over again in the Media that she has. Just ask JOHNNY CHUNG who gave it to her.

Perhaps this is why Rep. LORETTA SANCHEZ backed out of her Saturday night Debate with Dr. ALEXANDRIA CORONADO at the very last minute..?

As I recall, her victory over B-1 Bob was rife with election fraud. A good person for John Kerry to know.

Well, considering that Illinois Sen. candidate Jack Ryan's divorce papers were opened to the public, let's have Ms. "Sanchez" open up her divorce records.

Thanks for the ping.

Heck she didn't even live in Orange County when she ran for the office...
she had to rent an apt. in the district and left hubby & kids in L.A.

She dropped her married name to patronize the Hispanic vote in the district...
I bet that made her soon-to-be ex-husband feel reeeeel good!!!

but that didn't keep the hubby from earning his keep...
he was kept busy tearing down Bob Dornan's signs! LMAO
until the cops arrested him!

And of course the illegal alien votes placed for her are legendary!!!

Sanchez says no to debate with Coronado

By Courtney Paquette,
The Hill

September 28, 2004

Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-Calif.) is accusing her Republican challenger, Alexandria Coronado, of attempting to influence unfairly a recently canceled debate and is now refusing to reschedule it.

Robert MacLeod, general manager of the Orange County Deputy Sheriffs Association, said his group canceled the debate scheduled for last Saturday because it had received a number of e-mails that indicated a large number of people were planning to come very early, take all the seats and change the direction of the debate from a discussion on law enforcement and public safety to a forum on other issues, such as same-sex marriage and abortion.

He said the e-mails were forwarded to the association by members of police groups and by some who were “undoubtedly” Sanchez supporters. MacLeod said some of the e-mails intercepted were from Coronado supporters.

“She had her chance, and she didn’t know how to handle it,” Sanchez said, adding that a win for the Democrats in the district is a forgone conclusion.

Coronado denied the charge that her supporters planned to change the direction of the debate, which was to be held at the Santa Ana Police Officers Association.

But because the Orange County Deputy Sheriffs Association, as well as the Santa Ana Police Officers Association, endorsed Sanchez before the debate, Coronado argued, the debate was not on neutral ground, and she said her campaign planned to have more than 300 supporters present.

Sanchez’s campaign “had complete control over the debate. They picked the moderator. They had control over the questions,” Coronado said. “That someone was trying to change the direction of the debate or the agenda, that’s just a bunch of baloney.”

Coronado said the Sanchez campaign would not discuss the terms of the debate beforehand.

“She’s ruled them out because she knows I’ll win. She’s afraid of me,” said Coronado.

Coronado said she and her supporters would demand that Sanchez debate her in a fair and open public forum. Rep. Christopher Cox (R-Calif.), who represents the 48th District, has offered grounds on Chapman University.

Coronado held a rally in place of the debates Saturday night, and her campaign manager said more than 100 supporters attended.

Sanchez defeated former Republican Congressman Bob Dornan for the House seat in the traditionally Republican Orange County district in 1996 and has held it ever since. As of June 30, Sanchez had raised more than $1 million and Coronado had raised $180,847.

Sanchez is favored to reclaim the seat, but Coronado has made a push in the past month that includes an appearance on Fox News and an aggressive grassroots effort.

Coronado is president of the California School Boards Leadership Council and was the first Hispanic woman to be elected to the Anaheim Union High School District Board of Trustees.

Sanchez, in response to Coronado’s accusations that the original debate would not have been on neutral ground, said Coronado should not have accepted if she didn’t like the terms.

“She’s the one who accepted,” Sanchez said. “She should have thought it through.”

The 47th is one of the only potentially competitive districts in the state. Democrats have talked wistfully of winning the district held by Rep. Mary Bono (R) when the seat opens up; Bono has given no indication she plans to step down. And Republicans continue to have high hopes for the seat held by Rep. Adam Schiff (D), who represents a district north and east of downtown Los Angeles.

More than any other state, perhaps, California is notorious for its politically calibrated redistricting, which protects incumbents and makes party pick-ups nearly impossible. While a movement is afoot to change the way redistricting takes place in the state capital, Sacramento, reform is unlikely to happen for years.

For now, the Democrats have 33 House seats and the Republicans 20. Few on either side of the aisle believe that split will shift Nov. 2.

SHE COULD CERTAINLY USE YOUR HELP!

Hillary could NEVER win a national election, unless we had 25% unemployment and rioting in the streets.

Why can ONLY Rudy the RINO beat Hillary? Most GOP governors out there can easily defeat her.

Californicate is a 50-50 community property state. Brixey gets half the dinero, she gets half the dinero.

I bet she had to cough up plenty to get rid of him so she can discover the new oppportunities for her inner self.

I hope he gets permanent monthly alimony, the house, the Mexican gardener, the taco recipes and the chihuahua.

there would be a large women vote for Hillary - much of it "hidden", especially single young women who would otherwise not have voted, who would vote for her because of the "chicness" of electing the first women president. especially if she were running against a republican that no one ever heard of.

don't underestimate her.

we haven't groomed any conservatives for 2008, we have to face up to that. our party stands for nothing if it allows Hillary to walk into the white house because we nominate an unelectable conservative candidate - not because he's a conservative, but because he doesn't have any name recognition or star power.

I heard Stephen Brixey is gay. Is it possible that he's moved in with his boyfriend? No joke, I'd like to see somebody investigate that. I also wouldn't be surprised if their marriage was just an arrangement anyway.

A lot of conservative husbands would be surprised how liberal their wives will vote....(ie. "I just nod yes to his opinions and then plan to vote for Hillary! He's such a good man in a lot of ways, I just won't tell him so as to not upset him")
