After writing my original post on Aaron getting paid to blog, I was tipped to another incident earlier this year.
Clearly those that don’t learn from the past are doomed to repeat it. Or as Solomon once said, “As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly.” Proverbs 26 :11

Aaron Park will gladly go against CRA endorsed candidates yet he proudly proclaims that he is THE CRA Vice-President.
Park needs to come clean about why he is attacking Moorlach. It is a damn embarrassment. The CRA overwhelmingly endorsed Moorlach and yet there is Park, continuing to attack Moorlach for what amounts to a really stupid reason.
From March 17, 2015
This was not an easy decision for me to make but now that John Moorlach has prevailed in the Special Election for the 37th State Senate District I am doing something I should have done a while ago. I am saying good bye to Aaron Park.
Park is a player in Northern California GOP politics and the CRA. I invited him to blog here because I thought he would be of like mind. But he has repeatedly backed the wrong O.C. Republicans and even worse has used my blog to conduct vicious, person attacks on some of my friends, including Greg Raths, Anna Bryson and Moorlach.
I am a Libertarian but I have a soft spot for Republicans who actually stand for something. I utterly dislike the RINO Republicans and the plethora of Orange County GOP lobbyists, including the abominable Curt Pringle. Park knew full well that Moorlach’s main opponent, Don Wagner, was a Pringle hack but he backed him any way. Well now Park can do that elsewhere.
I apologize to Raths, Bryson and Moorlach for allowing Park to savage them. I hope that my decision to delete all of Park’s posts on this blog will salve their wounds.
The comments added to this story were interesting also.

Good job Art, you should have booted him long ago. His outright lies, slander and mean spirited banter was not a benefit to this blog. I predicted early on that quotes from Park’s nonsense would make its way on to mail pieces, which it did and ironically ones funded by unions. He is a pay for play blogger and his objectivity is nonexistent.

It takes a pretty low character to abuse somebody with half-truths, mischaracterizations, and outright lies – even in politics – for a few bucks or a few favors, and appear to be relishing it all the while.
At first I tried to communicate with this individual as an adult – which turns out to been a waste of time.

The Parks, along with Rick Marshall and Todd Blair, literally stole the CRA from the true conservatives, including Mike Spence and Celeste Greig. Celeste was naive and trusted them, even as I and others warned her. …
Totally self-serving and definitely not standing for what the CRA founders did. At some point, a coalition will need to be started to wrestle back the CRA from the hands of these RINO-servers.

Someone should ask about his relationship with Charles Munger (the bowtied money man) and Harmeet Dhillion, who appointed Aaron to the CRP as a delegate–is all of this their work and he did it for them? He only smears when he is told and gets paid.
In case you were wondering what Aaron gets paid for his blogging, I was told it’s a sliding scale based on the size of the office. My source says the high three figures for local office, mid-four figures for Assembly or Senate and he tops out at about 10K for congressional races.
2014 Congressional Candidate Igor Birman reportedly paid Aaron about $8K. In case you didn’t know, Igor is Tom McClintock’s Chief of Staff. So Aaron was simultaneously schilling for Birman while preventing his boss McClintock from getting the CRA endorsement.
