Juvinall forks out $2,500 for a mug with with LaMalfa and Boehner — and thinks he’s “special”

CABPRO founder and former County supervisor Todd Juvinall is long delinquent on a property tax payment, at least according to the County.

But he still was able to afford a $2,500 donation to Doug LaMalfa’s campaign for Congress. Check out the details here.

But like American Express, “membership” has its privileges. This week, Todd has a post where he’s mugging with Doug and John Boehner, who has now stepped down as Speaker of the House. “I have my picture with him and Doug LaMalfa on my table,” he writes on his blog, waxing on about his political “genius.”

What Todd left out is that the photo was at a political donor gathering at Doug’s big rice farm in the Central Valley: “After mingling for a while, The Speaker of the House, John Boehner arrived. He was escorted by a few Sheriff’s vehicles and he was accompanied by some Secret Service people.  … After a short while we all stood in line and one by one we got our picture taken with Doug and the Speaker.”

The details are here.

So it sound like Todd didn’t earn this photo; he stood in a line and paid for it, like children who wait in line at Macy’s for a photo with Santa Claus.

This is the MO for national politicians, traveling to the hinterlands and getting country bumpkins such as Todd to pony up $2,500 for a “photo op.”

Doesn’t that make Todd special. ROFLOL!

  1. Judging from the comments, it seems the trolls who comment on Todd’s blog need a new dosage of meds around this time of the afternoon.

      1. Same pattern for the trolls on Todd’s blog. The meds seem to run out at the dinner hour. Where’s Dr. Phil? LOL.

      2. Old Fart Tip: Perhaps we need a County Ordinance that requires “Those Folks” to wear them new fangled skin patches as they only need to be changed every three days. They could meet at the Right Wing Clubhouse every third day to change patches in Unison. You KNOW it would be in UNISON. 😉
