Sanchez sisters eyed by House ethics panel for alleged collusion (Democrats)
Washington Post ^ | October 30, 2009 | Scott Higham and Alice Crites

Posted on 10/30/2009 10:06:52 AM PDT by Ben Mugged

A document from the House ethics committee lists an examination into whether the chamber's rules were violated when Rep. Linda T. Sanchez put three legislative aides to her fellow-congresswoman sister on her payroll after an embezzlement scheme had left Rep. Loretta Sanchez's office short of funds.

The document, a July tracking report obtained by The Washington Post, says that the sisters, both California Democrats, "shared transferred staff from one office to another after embezzlement," and that a meeting between lawyers for the ethics committee and the congresswomen had taken place June 1. The document also says that lawyers for the congresswomen had submitted a letter with "additional information" on June 19.

On May 19, the Capitol Hill newspaper Roll Call reported that the ethics committee was examining the employee transfer. The paper reported that the panel was investigating an agreement in which Linda Sanchez put three aides from her sister's office on her payroll in 2006 shortly after discovering that one of Loretta Sanchez's employees had stolen money from the office. That employee, Caroline Valdez, later pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia to charges that she embezzled from $5,000 to $10,000 from the office.

I wouldn’t be surprised to find that every California Dem in the House and Senate has skeletons in their closets. California is one big, corrupt Democrat mess!

If this is true there is a posibility of a Republican taking over Loretta’s seat. She is in Orange County California and she does not have that big of a dimoKKKRAT margin.

The Sanchez sisters are a direct result of Newt stabbing B-1 Bob Dornan in the back.

IIRC, Loretta Sanchez is the one who displaced Bob Dornan, and Dornan proved later that many illegals voted in that election.
Nothing was done about it, and I suspect that voters rolls were NOT purged, either.

Long ago she ran against Bob Dornan in an R Primary and lost. She used her married name ‘Loretta Brixey’. She then changed affiliations and ran as a D, as Loretta Sanchez, her maiden name. That’s how she first won. Her sister ran on her coattails in a nearby district and won, too. These people have no core.

3 employees earn much more than $10,000 in Washington, DC.

This is just the tip of an iceberg, IMO.

California is one big, corrupt Democrat mess!

Not so....we have some very fine Republican Reps. - Duncan Hunter Snr. and Jr. and the Rep from my district - Dana Rohbacher, to mention but a few.

Also, in case you have forgotten, California is the home of Free Republic.

And the weather is lovely as well!

Well, I can’t really blame Loretta, the replacement for B-1 Bob, except she probably approved the hiring, and she ain’t B-1 Bob, besides being a democrat and there were a whole bunch of accusations of voter fraud during her election process. But then there weren’t any convictions, so I really can’t blame her for that, but what has she done for or to CA? I guess CA gets what it deserves and that is good enough for me.

Isn’t she the one that changed her last name to win the race which minorities seem so fond of doing.

Loretta deserves credit for being among the leaders in bringing the worst of Mexican political practices and corruption to southern California. She and the sister should be behind bars. Bob Dornan got screwed, and his fellow Republicans did squat about it, even when they were in the majority. And of course the rolls were not purged. The illegals have kept her in office.

Just moved after 19 years in California. Yes, it is beautiful and the weather is lovely. Unfortunately it has become very hostile to business. Businesses are fleeing to Arizona and Nevada. When I left, many of my friends said they wouldn’t be long behind. Good luck to you. Our California dream turned sour and we fled. (glad FR is thriving!)

Have to agree with you about the business climate in Cal. I’ve been in business here for 26 years and the last few have been very trying.

B-1 Bob, a particular hero of mine, was always shaky on illegal immigration; shaky that is, until a Mexican stole his job!

Ah yes, how well I remember every question asked of Old B-1 Bob being answered by long dissertations upon the ballistics of the .30-06 as fired from the Garand, interspersed with references to the performance envelope of the F-86. I used to listen to him for hours!

It is fitting that this latest Sanchez news breaks on Halloween, as Loretta was elected by dead Mexicans, totally imaginary Mexicans, illegal alien Mexicans, and their numerous relatives, all living at entirely fictitious addresses. I am sorry that Newt and the other Big Kahunas of the GOP did not find this "Night of the Living Dead Voters" movie at all interesting.

Please don't think that I am a racist. I am all for Mexican sister teams, owning several 8-track cassettes of "Las Hermanas Padilla." But them Sanchez cuties, even though they don't look too bad, can't sing worth a lick!

That “B-1 Bob” Dornan could be replaced by the Hispanic twit, Loretta Sanchez, says everything one needs to know about the demise of sanity in CA.

OH Baby!!!! having B-1 Bob back in congress would be a hoot!

B-1 Bob back in Congress ....I love it! It would be like endless rambling re-runs of "Victory at Sea!"

"I told the Pentagon, lose those .50 cals in the F-86, give me 4 20mikemike and I'll show you what for! Now you take the B-1, sure we're having some minor teething problems with that baby, but lemme tellya "

... and before you know it it s 3:00 AM, and you have learned about the Russian T-34 at the Siege of Stalingrad, Doolittle's Raid on Tokyo, heard him recite the "Charge of the Light Brigade," twice, and learned why you must never ...NEVER ... snap-roll an F-106 below 10,000 feet!

B-1 Bob? OK! But only if we can have Jimmy Traficant back, too. "Beam me up, Scotty. There's no intelligent life here!"

Sure the Sanchez Sisters are cute and can steal a hot stove while they register and get 10 absentee ballots for the illegal alien cook and her dead husband, but those guys .... they were CongressMEN!

Okay. I never could figure why nothing was done about it, just guessed the mexican mafia had her back. She does nothing but spend, travel to exotic locales at our expense, etc. There was a recent article here about her travels.

When B-1 Bob had Loretta dead to rights on her
(a)Creation of fictitious voters ... whole families of them ... at entirely fictitious addresses
(b)Registration of illegal aliens
(c)Registration of felons
(d)Registration of deceased voters
(e)Multiple absentee ballots
(f)Multiple precinct voting
(g)Outside of the district voters

But no one would listen to Bob. Newt Gingrich refused to get involved. In fact, Bob couldn't draw flies to his predicament. He lost. But it surely was not fair and square. California has an enormous registration problem, and many of those holding state and county offices are there as a result of plain fraud. It's a disgrace.

Take away fraud, and California would have a much more balanced government, particularly in regard to the state legislature and city governments. Personal example: I was defeated in a schoolboard race, 1115 votes to 905 votes. There were supposedly 1905 registered voters on the rolls in the district. I was defeated by the recently registered dead, which is why Election Day is close to Halloween.

The result of my complaint? Judge of Elections threw out 81 of my votes. There you go, all evened up! Get a California phone book. Look up Sanchez, Gomez, Gonzalez, Fernandez. Antonio Gomez y Fernandez, Antonio Gomez, and Antonio Fernandez all have registration cards (drivers licenses, SS cards, you name it) and it is one person.

Spanish surnames are (a) limited in number, and (b) quite interchangeable. Antonio Gomez Y Fernandez marries María Gonzalez. She becomes (a)Mrs. Antonio Gomez, SRA María Gonzales de Gomez, Mary Gomez-Fernandez, Mrs. Tony Fernandez. You and your spouse: two votes. Antonio and María might have 8 or 10, and with Loretta on the case, each of the fictitious persons might have a number of absentees each.

Bienvenida a Aztlan, mi Enchiladita.

That's not a live pussy on Loretta's motorcycle, D. It's some sort of appliqué on her shirt. No PETA-sensitive Democrat elected official would endanger her pussy by placing it on a Harley gas tank without OSHA and DOT-Approved pet-safety devices.

Of course, B-1 Bob was much too much of a gentlemen to bring up this clear-cut case of pussy endangerment in the campaign.
