Leaked Audio: Chad Mayes Dodges Question About Melendez From “John and Ken Show” Listener
This is the third installment of our "Leaked Audio featuring Assemblyman Chad Mayes" series. These recordings are from the San Bernardino County Republican Central Committee meeting that took place on August 10.
This installment features a direct question from one of the members of the committee who also listens to "The John and Ken Show." The gentleman asks Assemblyman Mayes if he put Riverside County Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez in the "dog house" in retaliation for critical remarks about Mayes' cap and trade vote and subsequent resignation from leadership.
Here is the clip:
Everyone knows that it isn't coincidence that Melendez was put in the 391 sq. ft "dog house." And everyone knows that this wasn't done without Mayes' awareness and approval.
Mayes attempts to deflect blame and dump it into the lap of Speaker Anthony Rendon. Yet, it is common knowledge that he and the speaker have a "bromance" and get along swimmingly.
I mean...why wouldn't Speaker Rendon enjoy the company of a GOP leader who caves and gives him everything he wants, right?
Don't believe me. Here are some screenshots from Mayes' Twitter feed.
But, we are supposed to pretend like Mayes has no idea how Melendez ended up in the "dog house." Give me a break. Just another typical smarmy non-answer by a slick politician.
