The Republican candidate for governor of California paid a visit to a DMV on Wednesday and casually compared standing in line at the notoriously sedate agency to surviving the Holocaust, Capital Public Radio reported.

This moron seems blissfully unaware that you can make appointments online at the CA DMV website, and have zero wait time when you arrive. Most transactions, like the annual registration renewal, are done entirely online. It’s completely painless, extremely efficient. He’s either utterly clueless, or, more likely, disingenuous.

Thankfully, the likelihood of a Repube governor in CA these days is zero.

^^Use a computer, navigate the internet, fill out a form online to make an appointment.
Isn't that asking too much of Republicans who have more in common with the Taliban?

GOP fundraiser Broidy under investigation for alleged effort to sell government influence

https://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...721_story.html


The Justice Department is investigating whether longtime Republican fundraiser Elliott Broidy sought to sell his influence with the Trump administration by offering to deliver U.S. government actions for foreign officials in exchange for tens of millions of dollars, according to three people familiar with the probe.

As part of the investigation, prosecutors are scrutinizing a plan that Broidy allegedly developed to try to persuade the Trump government to extradite a Chinese dissident back to his home country, a move sought by Chinese President Xi Jinping, according to two of the people.

They are also investigating claims that Broidy sought $75 million from a Malaysian business official if the Justice Department ended its investigation of a development fund run by the Malaysian government. The Malaysian probe has examined the role of the former prime minister in the embezzlement of billions of dollars from the fund.
