Khanna says East Bay Citizen is becoming the National Enquirer; Is Honda looking into my school detention, too?

Ro Khanna is crying foul.
With less than two weeks until Primary Day, things are getting tense in the 17th Congressional District.

A pair of article in the last week is shading a different light on Democrat Ro Khanna and a growing pattern during past campaign of avoiding financial obligations.

First, former campaign staffer Bill Ferguson, who revealed emails showing Khanna acknowledged owing him money for his work on his 2004 race. Ferguson said Khanna failed to fully pay him in 2014.

Now, a former Silicon Valley executive named Chuck Bellavia says Khanna donated $1,000 to an event celebrating the birth of Jesus in 2012 and later canceled the check.

Khanna has suggested the Ferguson story is the work of Honda's campaign and possibly the Bellavia claim, too.

Khanna said Wednesday night, "The last three blogs make me question whether the East Bay Citizen has become the National Enquirer."

He aaded, "What I find is interesting is that every person with an ax to grind is going to the East Bay Citizen to smear me. I'm looking forward to next week's blog to learn about my school detention. I'm sure the Honda campaign is already tracking down the story."

It should be noted the National Enquirer in 2010 was in the running for a Pulitzer Prize following its reporting of former presidential candidate John Edwards's extramarital affair and love child.

    While obviously, and while the National Enquirer is far from perfect, however, and on the other hand, it is far more accurate than such "respectable" publications as the NY Times and SF Chronicle.

    Second, the NE is very often willing to discuss facts that members of the mainstream "respectable" media keep away from.

    Third, there have been instances in which items mentioned in SF Chronicle articles were completely wrong, but when I phoned a reporter on the Chronicle with accurate information related to that article, the Chronicle reporter each time said, "We don't want to talk about that."

    In other words, the Chronicle is the stooge, mouthpiece, and puppet on a string for such scumbags as SF City Hall, the totally corrupt California State Bar, and the jokers in the SF Fire Department arson squad.

    NOTE: The most important job of the jokers in the SF Fire Dept's arson squad is everytime there is a suspicious fire, if the building owner is politically connected, then going through the choreographed charade of pretending to "investigate" the cause of the fire, and then after going through its choreographed charade of "investigating," then declaring that the fire was caused by bad luck rather than arson, since SF is the ultimate example of a totally corrupt city in which those who pay under the table bribes can get away with absolutely anything and everything, and including murder and arranging multi million dollar arson fires.

    And with all of this going on, the Chronicle continues pretending, and also "educating" its readers in regard to, that SF is supposedly a city with very little corruption and very little organized crime. However the real facts are that SF, and in spite of its glamor, image, and surface charm, actually has even far more corruption and organized crime than such deservedly notorious cesspools as NYC, New Orleans, Detroit, and New Jersey, etc. However the Chronicle not only refuses to talk about that, but is even extremely active in covering it up.

  2. Oh Khanna boo hoo poor baby. Next time pay your people, and follow through on your word.

  3. Ro = Carly Fiorina
    When is he actually gonna win an election?

  4. By MW:

    As a followup to my previous post, Khanna was obviously trying to insult and disparage the East Bay Citizen by comparing it to the National Enquirer. However if he had really wanted to insult the EB Citizen bigtime, instead he would have compared it to the SF Chronicle.

  5. Intensionally bouncing a check is a potential FELONY. This is not the behavior of a potential congressman. I call for Ro to withdraw from the race. Ron Cohen. Republican Candidate for Congress 17th District

  6. looks like Ro is having a bad week...and when you add in Honda out raising him and leading in polling...Ro has taken to shooting the messenger.

    1. It's only going to get worse with Hillary and Trump ensuring women vote in November...

      "Khanna leads among men. Honda leads among women. There is a 25-point Gender Gap, unusually large given that both candidates are titularly from the same political party." http://www.surveyusa.com/client/PollReport.aspx?g=43cda76a-06cb-4d78-a84e-3fa9d768a3ab

  7. Six points is pathetic for Mike. He needs to fire his staff. How can he be this close to a clown like Khanna. I hope he turns it around in two weeks. Get his old team back. The number I'll be looking at is 45%. Stark was at 43% in the primary and he got trounced. If Mike is under 45%, hes toast. I think he can get to the 48% like last cycle to squeak out a win. But, hes got to up his game.

  8. Hi 9:53:

    This comes up as the polling from 2014. Am I inputting it wrong? I'd like to see polling form 2016...but can't seem to find it. Thanks!

    Ron Cohen

    1. Link is the 2014 poll...can't find a 2016 poll either

      imperfect but I see no reason why this trend wouldn't persist?
