    I got this Idea from the thread by OLDNEWBIE http://www.northwestfirearms.com/le...ll-mid-term-elections-what-have-you-done.html

    I'll start. the office of Sheriff is up for grabs in Los Angeles County. Now, you might all think California, especially Los Angeles, is a lost cause, but this race could have National repercussions.

    From a post by a fellow gun owner and enthusiast in another forum.....

    Here is the web page.. Paul Tanaka for Los Angeles County Sheriff

    Make a donation, or post your support.

    I think if you read a little bit about his unconstitutional ways of "working in the gray" and some of his past misdeeds like costing his county $999,999 in his last "wrongful death" suit oh and lets not forget his neo-nazi background maybe you can find someone worthy of your support.

    Not that it is not legitimate, but I don't trust anything from Hostmaster, a two bit hosting service. The claim may or may not be legitimate, but I feel that the possibility of having a Pro 2A Sheriff in LA County is significant enough to support this man. I'll research the allegations, but I personally feel this is a smear campaign, possibly by an opponent.

    Nothing in Wiki, like I trust that Paul Tanaka - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Your link didn't take me to anything. There is a ton of controversy and image assassination in this race. It will be dirty.

    These allegations of jail abuse have now been attributed to Baca, the former Sheriff. Paul Tanaka calls on Baca to take responsibility in jail abuse - latimes.com

    Here Paul Tanaka Is Tough on Concealed Weapons Permits, Until It Comes to His Pals | News | Los Angeles | Los Angeles News and Events | LA Weekly it looks like a toss up, but I do trust the judgment of my forum buddy and fellow administrator.
    Remember, this is in California, and as a politician he has to work both sides.

    I don't see how it can be a smear campaign, the articles were written in 2011 about events that conspired in the late 80's

    I did have some trouble with the link but it works fine now.

    Yea, I researched him, too. My feeling is that this may be the first time in 50 years that LA County Gun Owners may be issued a CCL. That in itself is significant. Decide on your own, I donated to the campaign.

    I feel that what happens in LA County, sooner or later happens all over California, a "May Issue State". Change takes place in small steps.

    BTW, I couldn't find the articles you linked to...

    Scroll down past the second Tanaka picture to "Working In The Grey" and read about Tanaka'a anti-constitutional instructions to his deputies.

    I like his support of concealed carry also, but I dislike that he has a gang affiliation to "the Vikings" his anti-semetic neo nazi background is also worrisome to me. BTW there are three installments to the witness la article.
    BTW I do support California unlike many of my peer group.

    Remind yourself, that this is one article, one reporters investigation. Saw you fixed the link and just read through it. I don't believe everything I read on the internet. Pieces like this are how LAwitness and Celeste Fremon make a living.

    Thanks for digging this up for me. Interesting......
