Dam Breaking on Chad Mayes; Contacted by Sac Bee Reporter and Updates

Yesterday was a disaster for Assemblyman Chad Mayes.

First, we exposed his affair with former GOP Assembly Leader Kristin Olsen. Then he betrayed his party and constituents by supporting the cap and trade bill.

AUDIO: Newspaper Refuses to Print Legal Notice for Initiative to Defund Sanctuary City

I have experienced another unexpected "first" in my life as an activist. Each time I think I have planned for every contingency I get surprised by some other strange twist and turn in the saga of patriotic activism.
