ASSEMBLYMAN CHAD MAYES IN THE CROSSHAIRS OF POLITICAL RETRIBUTION

ASSEMBLYMAN CHAD MAYES IN THE CROSSHAIRS OF POLITICAL RETRIBUTION

In the rough and tumble world of state politics, Yucca Valley-based Assembly minority leader Chad Mayes has become the latest target. Mayes, who just joined with seven other Republicans in voting for an extension of a prominent California climate change policy, is being accused of an extra marital affair and his resignation from the leadership post is being demanded. Joseph Turner, a conservative activist, posted allegations that Mayes engaged in an extramarital affair with his predecessor, Kristen Olsen, on the anti-immigration website, “American Children First,” based on a letter written by Olsen’s estranged husband. In that letter, which has been confirmed, Rod Olsen requested that the Assembly Legislative Ethics Committee investigate whether Mayes had inappropriately used state resources while carrying on the affair. Emails to Mayes from Z107.7 News asking for a statement have not been answered. Turner took Mayes to task for “following the moderate GOP playbook that discourages opposition to illegal immigration, seeking the respect of Democrats and reporters, and betraying his party over climate change.” Olsen, who handed control of Assembly Republicans to Mayes in late 2014, petitioned for divorce in April 2016. Mayes petitioned for divorce June 12 citing, “irreconcilable differences.”

    I am not remotely interested in Mr. Mayes’ sex life. This is just sleazy, underhanded garbage because the extreme right wing is angry he bucked party orthodoxy on climate change.

      I’m not the extreme right wing. I’m a middle class homeowner who is sick and tired of paying tax after tax after tax for something that will have no effect on anyone. Do you really think that Cap and Trade can make an iota of difference when it comes to climate change when no one, NO ONE else in the US is doing anything? The only thing that Cap and Trade is doing is drive business out of Califoria and taking more and more money out of the pocket of every person in California. Oh and I could care less about his sex life either. I care about my taxes and this is totally out of hand.

    I could not care less about Chad Mayes sex life. What I care about is the $600 more a year that I’m going to have to pay in increased gas costs. He says that he saved all of us the $150 fire fee, well gee let me see. He’s saving me $150 a year but it’s going to cost me $600 on year in additional gas costs, that’s a net increase of $450. Really??? REALLY? Shame on you Mr Mayes. You’re nothing but a Democrat in a Republicans clothing. Come your next election cycle I’ll be voting for anyone but you.
