Andy Quach apologized – but then he pushed it

What a difference 10 days make. At the Westminster City Council meeting last night, Councilman Andy Quach issued a somewhat belated but better-than-never apology for his drunk driving, with a direct apology to the people in the 300 homes whose power was cut off when he hit a car and then crashed into a power pole earlier this month.

Gone was any pretense that he wasn’t drunk – like the statement that Andy gave to Viet Bao daily news the day after the accident (pictured): I was “sleepy, because I was working too hard,” he said at the time.

The apology took place at the beginning of a city council meeting packed with people who were there for something else – a resolution naming the last Saturday each April as Boat People Memorial Day.

It was followed by the open communication session, where a small number of passionate people spoke about the Andy Quach drunk driving incident. One of the people who were out eating and drinking with Andy that night was in the audience too.

Naturally, some of Andy’s allies spoke on his behalf. The subtle support would probably have worked, except that Andy then pushed it.

It felt like someone was being too smart by half, when Andy’s own lawyer spoke in his support, without disclosing he’s the lawyer.

Bart Kasperowicz was the last person to speak. He stated that Quach’s actions showed “character, strength, not cowardice,” and praised his client as a man of “integrity.”

Not once, however, did Kasperowicz identify himself as Quach’s lawyer, the same person who came to the police station to get Quach out after he’d been arrested.

As a general rule, you push things too far, and they tend to backfire. Andy and Bart’s little ploy definitely counts as pushing, but whether or not it’s too far, and whether or not there will be an actual backfire, remain to be seen. Things like this tend to quiet down after a while.

    XYZ, YOU ARE RIGHT ON!!!

    I HAVE A QUESTION FOR ALL OF YOU LAWYERS OUT THERE; THIS BART KASPEROWICS IS ANDY QUACH’S ATTORNEY WHO CAME TO PICK HIM UP FROM THE POLICE DEPARTMENT AFTER HE WAS RELEASED RIGHT? HE WAS THE VERY SAME GUY THAT APPEARED AT THE COUNCIL MEETING TO PRAISE HIM FOR BEING COURAGEOUS RIGHT? ISN’T HE THE VERY SAME ATTORNEY THAT REPRESENTED MANY OF THE VIETNAMESE BUSSINESSES THAT COMES BEFORE COUNCIL? NOW, ISN’T THIS A MAJOR CONFLICT OF INTEREST?

    i’ve been told by a business owner in little saigon that DINA NGUYEN and ANDY QUACH visited their business together, Dina told them that she and andy own a consulting firm together and can handle businesses in both cities without conflict of interest… WHAT DO YOU THINK? ISN’T BART ALSO THE ATTORNEY REPRESENTING CITRYST? NOW, IF SOMEONE COULD LOOK INTO THAT AND TELL US IGNORANT FOOLS WHAT THIS COULD MEAN…

    The Quach Gate continues, YES!
    It was not the crime, but the cover up that got Nixon.
    Quach is not as important as Nixon but same crook.
