Local: Rightwing activist Bessee seeking to micro-manage the LaMalfa town hall meeting

This was posted on Reinette Senum’s Facebook page:

“Sadly, it looks like a lot of shenanigans are going to be happening at this Saturday’s Town Hall with Doug LaMalfa.

“This comes via one of our Indivisible Women:

“Just had a long chat on the phone with Don Bessee. I tried to sign up as a volunteer for the Town Hall. He would not provide any details or information unless I provided him with proof that I had personally received the email addressed to me from Nevada County Republicans. I was asked to send back the email to him showing my name and email address. I suggested that it was unethical, undemocratic and unamerican to limit volunteer slots to one political party only. He replied that he was only interested in allowing people who got the email to volunteer. He stated there would be plenty of room for all to attend the meeting, even those who did not volunteer,. I asked him how many volunteer slots he was designating for Republicans. He would not tell me.”

  1. The whole problem with the ultra-right wing is that because trump got elected (by 25% of voting eligible people) they now seem to think that they are the majority and a their views etc. are now suddenly mainstream. NOT!! So now they will pack the front rows with their red white and blue clothing and try to make it seem like they are the majority despite the throngs of opponents that will be there. Yet another alternate universe. The last laugh has yet to come, but it will..
