Orange County businessman Jacob "Jim" Rems said he was harassed and threatened with political annihilation. Big Bear Lake attorney David O'Brien said he received disturbing hints there would be political hit pieces against him. Assemblywomen Marilyn C. Brewer (R-Irvine) got a sexist insult and Kerry Mazzoni (D-Novato) was warned to "get out" or else. (Both were elected anyway.) All for making what many people consider the most patriotic of all American decisions: Running for public office.

Why should anyone be surprised by Assemblyman Curt Pringle's actions regarding his push to become speaker? He continues to act in an undemocratic manner that began when he first ran for the Assembly. At that time in 1988, the Republicans hired uniformed guards to stand at polling places that had a predominantly Hispanic constituency. This action intimidated the voters. He now intimidates fellow Republicans. Pringle will probably stop at nothing in order to gain political power. The Republicans can do better and should not promote such unethical behavior.

Pringle said Monday the mistake was corrected last week after his office was contacted about the accusations leveled by political newcomer Jacob "Jim" Rems of Irvine against two of the lawmaker's staff members.

Even aside from the central roles he allegedly played in two recent campaign escapades, Assembly staffer Mark Denny might have wanted a little time off, it being the holidays and all. But two weeks off, unpaid and previously unscheduled? Those holiday bills must be mounting about now for Denny, an aide to GOP Assembly Leader Curt Pringle of Garden Grove. Jeff Flint, Pringle's chief of staff, declined to comment on Denny's sudden leave without pay, scheduled to run from Dec. 21 to Jan. 4.

A first-time GOP legislative candidate charged Wednesday that Republican Assembly Leader Curt Pringle's chief of staff warned him to stay out of the 70th District race, "threatening" to use the party's resources against him if he took on the incumbent.
