Dave Maass, the Favoritist Liberal™ of conservatives and Libertarians, points out a SD CityBeat story by John R. Lamb about a big-name alleged bad tenant: The Republican Party of San Diego County.
The county GOP, according to Lamb, ditched its digs on Oberlin Drive at the end of December, with six months to go on its lease:
“You wouldn’t believe what they ditched in the trash bin!” said Antoine Georges, who’s owned the building for 20 years. “Thousands of things. Office supplies, staplers— maybe 30 or 40 staplers, the big kind for campaign work—pots and pans, boxes and boxes of stuff, even brand-new live plants! It was just mind-boggling. . .”
Moreover, they left the place in disrepair:
“The place is trashed!” he said. “It needs new carpet. The walls need to be repaired because they literally glued campaign signs to the wallpaper. And they still left a bunch of stuff behind! Empty file cabinets, furniture. And they never returned the keys, so now I have to have all the locks changed.”
There’s more about the county GOP’s financial woes and the role of San Diego County Republican Party Chairman Tony Krvaric:
Krvaric wouldn’t say much on the subject, but Georges suspects that the GOP has effectively shut down operations, perhaps for the next few months. Some Republicans have received notices that the headquarters is now operating out of Krvaric’s financial-planning office in Rancho Bernardo, which would seem to create all sorts of logistics issues, like who’s paying the rent—and who owns the staplers.
Hmmmmmmmm . . . SD Rostra readers with knowledge of the alleged events and facts described in this story are welcome to chime in with their info in the comments.
