If you like Wendy Leece, you’ll LOVE Keith Curry

Wendy Leece… the pariah of Newport/Mesa politics.  She, runs against members of her own party who are actively doing great jobs, breaks her promises to both the public and to her own party, and her social crowd mostly consists of political crazies– who she regularly votes in solidarity with.  She even broke her promise not to accept money from certain organizations– just weeks …

How?  Very simple.  There is a pipe that runs adjacent …

Newport Beach City Hall and Bunnies, photo by Mike Glenn
