Democratic Leader Drops Out

“It was a moment that I truly regret, that I am very sorry for, and for which I have accepted responsibility for my actions.”

California Assemblyman said Monday he will not be running for reelection and will resign immediately.

Democrat Raul Bocanegra claimed “persistent rumors and speculation” for his choice to resign.

“I spent my life advocating for the Northeast Valley, fighting for a fair share for our communities and residents,”

“It is because of my deep commitment to you, residents of the 39th Assembly District, that I have made the decision to resign from the State Assembly, effective September 1, 2018, and immediately resign my leadership position. I am also suspending my campaign and will not run for re-election.”

    Bravo…..CA. has a swamp too, and hopefully the voters will rise to the opportunity to DRAIN IT TOO.

        Screw you. California is a great place, although it’s run by and infested with criminals of many types. And morons like you.

    What did this Democrat do this time? Raul Boccanegra resigned without disclosing the reason why. Typical cop out from a liberal. Way to go California keep electing liberals till the Republican Party comes back to bail this State out the sooner the better. Sick of living in this State of losers. No one wins in this State anymore.

      Exactly why I would never move to CA. I have vacationed there a couple of times but will no longer go any vacationing there either. High prices…rude people….crazy government administration.

      These commies keep getting into office because of the illegals. Without them they wouldn’t be able to win a place in a clothes closet.
      America: Love It or Leave It!
      GOD Bless and GOD Help us,

      From “California State Assemblyman Raul Bocanegra (D-Pacoima) announced Tuesday that he will resign next year after six women accused him of making unwanted sexual advances and unwelcome statements toward them.”

    What is larger than a flock? A herd, a gaggle, a barnyard? Whatever, its a huge number of chickens are coming home to roost among a huge number of Democrats!

    When Democrats foreswore honesty, decency, morality, integrity and religious teachings, substituting government for God, the elimination of “natural law” and the abandonment of firm definitions of right and wrong, for “relevancy” and situational ethics, adopting the theory of “there is no right or wrong”, they brought the decadence we see upon themselves!

    Now that it is primarily Democrats being accused of sexual harassment, the FakeNewsMedia is claiming, “this is not a partisan issue”. No, its a moral issue, and Democrats long ago abandoned morality as any kind of a guide post!

      Exactly , well done;; they never think they must answer to a higher authority. Uh Oh.

      • They think they are the high authority! But when it comes down to protecting the citizens they do the opposite and allow illegals to get access to health care that even Americans cannot get unless they pay for it.

  • Rick Vitti

    Where is the rest of the story? better yet where is the story? Why do you bother writing such drivel?

  • Deplorable Irredeemable Susan

    I guess he did something wrong?

  • Cookie Vranish

    I am getting a real kick out of this sexual stuff and Democrats! They use dirty tricks to accuse Republicans of stuff they do!

    • Ursus_Indomitus

      It;s called projection and is one of Alinsky’s favorite tactics.

    Grab this nut by the neck and seat of his drawers and toss him out….

    Now if the rest of the Dumbocrat party jerks would follow his footsteps we could establish another party of intelligent supporters of the Constitution and straighten out the mess these aholes have put us in.

  • Thank you for doing the right thing. I just wish Franken and Conyers were man enough to resign. The democRAT party is not for getting rid of there bad politicians, they usually promote them!

  • David J. Ingraham

    I wish many more democrats in the assembly would be so kind to fallow his example for the good of the people of the State of California.

    • Ursus_Indomitus

      Thank you for that kind wish. I wish there were more like you out there.

  • Ursus_Indomitus

    He doesn’t want the digging to go deeper. Persecute the scumsucker.
    DeLeon next!
