Viet candidates take serious beating

Across the country, except for a few bright spots, most Viet candidate fall flat, losing their races, sometimes spectacularly.

Now, of course, there is such a thing as a “Vietnamese bounce” – late absentee ballots cast mostly by Vietnamese – which has caused people (including the Bolsavik here) to sometimes prematurely announce the demise of some campaigns.

But, from the way things look, even the Vietnamese bounce won’t help this time.

Starting with the highest ranking Viet elected official, U.S. Rep. Joseph Cao, he of the claim to fame as the only Republican to vote for health care reform.

Two years ago, Cao won in a year where most Republicans lost. Now that most Republicans are winning, Cao lost spectacularly, 34%-64%, and conceded early in the night.

Another Viet Congress hopeful, California Assemblyman Van Tran, ended the night trailing Rep. Loretta Sanchez 42%-51% with all precincts counted. The distance to be made up is 4,993 votes, a spread widely considered too wide for late absentees to cover.

And the man who had hoped to replace Tran in the Assembly, Democrat Phu Nguyen, fought valiantly in a district with 1/3 more Republicans than Democrats and in a Republican-leaning year. Phu Nguyen got all the way up to 44%-56%, and fell 8,000 votes short.

Two groups lost big in Little Saigon. One is an organization calling itself, well, actually, not sure what its English name is, but it held a public voting all over Little Saigon earlier this year, resulting in a committee of 7 that’s supposed to be the official representatives of the community. Its grandiose Vietnamese name translates into the Committee of Representatives of the Community.

The Vice-President of the group is Bruce Tran, owner of VHN-TV. (Click here for all entries tagged Bruce Tran.) Tran ran for mayor of Westminster, and lost big time, 19%-71%.

The spokesman of the committee that organized that public voting, Charlie Chi Manh Nguyen, ran for the Huntington Beach Union HSD, which reaches into and covers parts of Westminster. With 3 positions available, Nguyen ended in 4th place with a little over half the votes the 3rd place person got.

The other group that lost big is SBTN-TV, the media giant that had backed Hoa Van Tran for OC Supervisor. This time, SBTN stands behind the Westminster City Council race for Khoa Do, a show host who’s well thought of in the community, having volunteered for several popular community events. Despite the might of mass media thrown in, Do ended up next to last place.

It’s not as if other Viet candidates for council fared any better. Incumbent Andy “DUI” Quach burned tens of thousands on the race, and ended up 48 votes behind the other Viet incumbent, Tri Ta. It looks like there will no longer be a Viet majority on the Westminster city council, as challenger Penny Loomeralmost a winner two years ago – took the first spot, leaving Quach and Ta sort out among themselves the 48 votes plus-or-minus whatever late absentees, for the second position available.

Also running in the area is former Councilman Tony Lam, the first Vietnamese-American to win public office. Returning to politics seeking a seat on the Midway City Sanitary District, he ended dead last.

There is one local bright spot. In the city of Fountain Valley, businessman Michael Vo, owner of a traffic school, finished ahead of two incumbents to win a seat on the city council. (In this same race, another candidates reputedly also supported by SBTN ended in the single digits.) This marks the first time an OC Viet candidate wins without the votes of Westminster/Garden Grove.

And there’s an out-of-state bright spot. State Representative Hubert Vo in Texas held off a powerful challenge by his Republican opponent and is leading by around 1000 votes when the election office there went to sleep and stopped updating its web site for the night.

  12. Jung Kim says:

    Loretta needs to reconcile while she can………

  13. Moralist Viet says:


    I suggest you get help from your spiritual leader, be it a monk or a priest, because you have no morals. Like most left wing liberals, you are an empty vessel filled with trash and junk. You have no place in the Vietnamese community.

    You are Godless and an Atheist. Shame on your parents for not teaching you triftafhr and wrong of things.

  14. uyen nguyen says:

    your mom should have aborted you jung kim. you are not fit for a human being on this planet. for that, i applaud abortion.

  15. Jung Kim says:

    uyen nguyen, joe mama has tried to wipe out smelly spermy fluids from her hole with a dirty diaper. However, a gang banger pushed in his little carrot little too fast for joe mama.
    Congrats! You are an official bastard!

  16. Jung Kim says:

    The fact : Loretta needs to stop killing innocent babies.

  17. Jung Kim says:

    uyen nguyen, every year, one million three hundred seventy thousand innocent babies are killed by the government funded execution. Are they all unfit for this life?
    Ask Loretta!

  18. Jung Kim says:

    While Loretta is trying to get pregnant with her boy friend……. countless babies are torn and butchered by her bloody program every minute.

  19. Jung Kim says:

    Loretta even supports late term abortion……. a fully grown baby’s execution.

  20. altar boy says:

    Mr. Kim Jung;
    Please stop making stupid comments.
    You want people have more babies than they can afford to raise them properly and let the kids grow up in the streets of bad society so they can become like you?
    You want some become altar boys to serve the priest sexual needs behind their office closed doors?

  21. Big D says:

    Please, for the love of the non-existent god, stop feeding that Jung the Skunk. By feeding him, you practically invite him here to spray his scent and mark his territory.

  22. jose s. says:

    big d, he already sees this blog as his territory and when it comes right down to it it is his. as we all know he has no job he leaches off the state like a parasite and has all the time in the world to post idiotic comments on here like he does. personally i blame our friend the bolsavik for allowing this to take place and allowing him to overtake his home like an unwanted plague of cockroaches. forget the fact that jung kim is an embarrassment to the viet race it’s the sheer volume of posts that he does under all his many s/n’s that clog up this once great blog. each name of his is just like a cockroach multiplying and festering in the house until you have to call an exterminator to tent the house because a simple spray can or bomb wont do it. jung kim has really destroyed this blog and thats a real shame. this is what happens when you have somebody mentally broken who has too much time on his hands.

  23. Altar Girl says:

    Jose s. And altar bitch,

    What are you bitching about now? Hae you not done enough to destroy this community? Go back to your hole and stay here for good until he’ll freezes over.

    What an altar bitch and Jose bs.

  24. jose s. says:

    alter bitch, aka jung kim, i live in little saigon so this is my “hole” ive lived here before it was called little saigon so it matters to me what happens here. understand?

  25. Altar Girl says:

    Jose bs. Your hole belongs in the sewer because you like to talk trash. You and Bo May can eat each other in your own hole. You must be a gangsta pimp to call me a bitch.

  26. Jung Kim says:

    jose. s, don’t you understand that you work for me idiot?

    Joe mama also works for my BIG dog. She is enslaved with joy….wet.

  27. Jung Kim says:

    jose.s, it seems like you have too much time playing with yourself …or seriously, aren’t you addicted to the computer?

  28. Jung Kim says:

    jose s., idiot… I do not post under different names like joe mama. A whore , slut, and bitch?

  29. Jung Kim says:

    Big D seeking Small H, can you condone Loretta killing million innocent babies?

    Loretta even supports late term abortion.

  30. Jung Kim says:

    alter boy, wanted to be molested? You are a one sick puppy.

    Loretta on the other hand, goes against all basic human ethical values. Can’s she hear l innocent babies crying?

  31. Jung Kim says:

    Jerry Brown is going to raise taxes taxes and taxes.

    Happy everyone?

  32. Bo May says:

    Jung Kim; Are you ok? Calm down.
    Why not going down to the street with the tea baggers yelling something like this:
    ‘Down with the commies’,
    ‘I will kick them commie asses’,
    ‘Down with Loretta’,
    ‘Down with the wet-backs’, (sorry jose s.)
    ‘Down with Obama’ (just kidding, don’t do it)
    If that would make you feel better, by all mean, do it, man.

  33. Jung Kim says:

    Bo May, joe mama says ……. down, down and little deeper.

    My BIG dog says “yummy”!

  34. Jung Kim says:

    Bo May, you should be happy to pay more taxes with Jerry Brown!

  35. Jung Kim says:

    It costs money to kill babies Loretta!

    You are spending our taxpayer’s money…..$1070.00 per each dead innocent lives!

    Loretta even supports late term abortion.

  36. Bo May says:

    kimmie: How much has it cost the society to raise a moron like you? One must wonder.

  37. Bo Crap says:

    Bo May,

    Ask your bitch mother how much it cost to raise you, and then multiply it by 100 to get to me. Bo crap the Bo May.

  38. Bo May says:

    You must hate your own mother and yourself that much to call someone mother like that. I am not insulted one bit for what you said here, just pity.
    Good bye kim jung.
    May God forgive you.

  39. Bo Crap says:

    Bo May,

    I am not jk but I love my mother. Of course you are not insulted because you have no sense of self, or respect. You at just a hateful person. You are a sad excuse of being a human being.

  40. Bo May says:

  43. Jung Kim says:

    May God forgive bloody killing of innocent babies by Loretta? I wonder…..

  44. Jung Kim says:

    Bo May is sadly neglected by his mom…..because of my BIG dog.

  45. Jung Kim says:

  46. Jung Kim says:

    Loretta is going to tie the knot while innocent babies are screwed out of their brain cavities..literally!

    Loretta even supports late term abortions on our tax dollars!

  47. Jung Kim says:

    Bo May, it could only have cost us $1070.00 to deny your miserable life …according to Loretta’s plan.

  48. Jung Kim says:

    Leave Obamama alone? Has he been reprimanded by Chinese?

  49. Bo Crap says:
