Scott Wilk, Patricia McKeon, and an anonymous website

Share: Share on Facebook submit to reddit StumbleUpon Toolbar

I haven't followed this story enough to make sense of it. State Assembly Candidate Patricia McKeon was attacked by an anonymous website that she apparently complained was set up by her rival Scott Wilk. I saw the website a few times. Sometimes it was interesting but I didn't want to post from it because it included personal attacks and comments on physical appearances.

Now, Scott Wilk's team is arguing they caught Patricia McKeon in a blatant lie and they have a letter from the District Attorney and the audio to support their claim.

The 38th Assembly District primary election is going to get nastier as the election gets closer.

Who do you believe?

I've know Scott Wilk and the McKeons for about the same length of time. I believe Wilk. He has my vote. McKeon had zero proof in her assertion that Wilk (or anyone associated with his campaign) ran that website. There's nothing to believe about her claims.

If McKeon wins she will actually take a pay cut because Buck pays her like $240,000 a year to be on his payroll using his campaign account according to the papers.

McKeon has my vote. Don't believe the falsehoods being pushed out there by the Wilk camp.

McKeon has the full backing and support of the tea party because he brings a lot of pork back to his district and we in the tea party love government pork!

Facts on -- Patricia is making a middle class salary. The $240,000 is for 2 congressional election cycles. 1 congressional election cycle is 2 years. So divide the $240,000 by 4 years, that's about $60,000 a year. Average, not extreme.

Irritated,

If it is a market rate for the position why is she paying her treasurer so much less? Why doesn't she mention this professional political experience as she campaigns?

I believe Patricia McKeon because I have seen the actual email which was sent to the DA asking him to investigate a website set up in her name with her campaign address & phone number. She most certainly did not name Scott Wilk, nor did she insinuate it was anyone in his campaign.

Irritated is correct that salary is based over the entire election cycle and amounts to $60,000/yrly. In addition she is the Chief Financial Officer of the Congressional Campaign and has more responsibility than just acting as Treasurer. If this were a man being paid this amount of money there would be no outrage, how ironic. She has a part time Treasurer for her campaign and most of the responsibilities are handled by a very expensive web based program...so comparing these salaries are apples and oranges.

When will folks actually see through these screens and nails thrown down the road...to the actual issues facing the campaign. It is disgusting, not to mention shameful how fellow Republicans in Santa Clarita act....you can support opposing candidates without throwing mud or engaging in personal attacks. I appreciate the breath of fresh air the McKeon Campaign embraces and am proud to be a supporter.

Let the name calling against my opinion begin...oops I am sure it already has...LOL!
