REX BOHN: Liar

OMG, Rex! Haha! You exemplify the term “mealy-mouthed” in this post on the North Coast Journal blog about your two-faced campaign tactics.

We called Bohn earlier today after seeing the top mailer [here] over at the Humboldt Herald blog. He claimed not to know what the Humboldt Herald is and said he couldn’t comment on the mailer because he hadn’t seen it. We offered to email him a link to the image. He said to send it to his campaign email address but warned he wouldn’t be able to look at it until “after 4:30 or 5 because I’m at work.”

We offered to send it to a work email. “I don’t use it,” he said. Then, “It’s for work only.”

He again said he couldn’t comment on the mailer because he couldn’t see it. Then he said, “I’m leaving here about 4 and I’m gonna go walk until about 5:30, 6 or 6:30.”

We offered to send him a link while on the phone. “Well I don’t work — pretty much — in an office. I’m out in the field mainly. I’m actually out in the yard on a piece of equipment right now.”

We offered to describe the mailer to him and then did so, mentioning the full slate of Democratic endorsements with his name in the middle of the flier. We read the phrase beneath his name: “Rex Bohn the Best Call! For ensuring jobs, public safety and preservation of the beautiful north coast environment.”

“Hmm, good statement,” Bohn said. But he still didn’t know whether or not the mailer came from his campaign, as it clearly stated. “I can’t say if it’s mine or not. I don’t know.”

After learning of the other mailers, we sent Bohn an email and left two message on his cell phone. We’ll update this post with his response, once we hear back.

Apparently Rex has so much money that he doesn’t know where it’s being spent, or that it’s being spent in a way to fool voters that he’s in line with the Democratic Party. He also can’t check his email or answer questions about apparently dirty behavior by his campaign.

Just like Rex didn’t know who was behind the shadow group who put up full-sized billboards for his failed campaign for Eureka City Council in 2004.

Integrity is not Rex’s middle name, nor a platform for the $80,000/year job for which he wants your vote.

    Why would anyone vote for a disgusting slob like Rex Bohn, after he jacked up gas prices in Eureka until they were the highest in the nation? I doubt if he appeals to women voters much. With two women in the race, there’s going to be a run off.

    Then he said, “I’m leaving here about 4 and I’m gonna go walk until about 5:30, 6 or 6:30.”

    Which was followed by him muttering excitedly under his breath:

    “Yeah, yeah, that’s the ticket!”

    Tell me, pray tell, how Rex jacked up the price of gas. My understanding is that all gas other than Costco comes in by barge to the Chevron bulk plant. Chevron sells the gas to all other brands in the area including the whipping boy, Renner.

    Bohn has been anointed by the development community that outspends almost every candidate that ever challenged them in H.Co..

    Bohn’s campaigns introduced phony front groups to local politics.

    Bohn was the ubiquitous media face and voice excusing the highest gas prices in the nation for 20 years.

    Bohn was an activist for Calpine’s 9-story LNG bombs to be located within 1 mile of our county’s highest population center.

    900 voters will have placed Bohn’s signs in their yards by November because he volunteered for their church, little league, or they remember him from high school….but will never vote for him.

    2004 redux.

    This is why Bohn needs every phony, corrupt front group Arkley can have manufactured to endorse him.

    Of course Bohn isn’t responsible for gas prices or any other of his employers’ business decisions. He wasn’t ever placed into a decision making role, because his employers recognized he’s not qualified to independently make important decisions. His jobs are laborer and labor crew leader, his skills are operating machinery and supervising other machine operators. By that measure, he has experience as a “supervisor”.

    Question for the NCJ and Heraldo. Deceptive slate mailers were used by Nealy, Gallegos and Cleary. I think it was pointed out on this blog. Why didn’t you object? Were you afraid of pissing off a the supervisor and DA? OK.

    What about Cleary? He ran a very dishonest campaign and had his name on numerous slate mailers to Dems and Repubs. Where was your outrage? Why did you ignore Cleary’s deception?

    Not rhetorical questions. Answer or admit your blatant bias.

    So you’re saying there’s no point in discussion.
    Bohn saying he never heard of the “Humboldt Herald” makes more sense as a joke than as an oblique, intellectually subtle commentary on the uselessness of discussion.
    As an outsider I see Rex Bohn as just another middle-class working guy who has different ideas about how to make things better.
    I wish people would save their hatred for those truly responsible for the undermining of the country, those with power over policy; and stop wasting it on their own fellow citizens who are just trying to help.

    This unique election cycle is being studied top to bottom by all the players on the national level.

To say the general public doesn’t know about it is one thing, but to suggest somebody running for a county seat doesn’t is a lie. Love it or hate it, political “discussion” (I use the term very loosely) takes place on the internet and here YOU are looking at it, whoever YOU are. I hate “blogs” but it’s great to vent a few cents now and then…speak your peace anonymously.

    It’s pretty amusing to read about Bohn uttering lies while the lid on his campaign’s widespread corruption is just beginning to be exposed.

    Bohn’s campaign was desperate to win 51% today.

    But now, they’re forced to fight bitterly just to survive their own flagrant deceit to November!

    Unfortunately, it’s not in local media’s self-interests to editorialize, investigate, report, or follow up on the only candidate in Humboldt County history to rely on 3 phony front-groups, (so far), or the dozens of well-known donors with no reported occupations, or Bohn’s dangerous advocacy for Calpine, or his petty lies.

I haven’t been impressed by Rex’s campaign, and he hasn’t really done anything to change my initial negative impression of his politics, based on his support for WalMart, Arkley’s Big Box by the Bay, and the CalPine LNG project. His record of volunteerism and community fundraising is impressive, but, at least to me, that doesn’t cancel out his poor judgement on the Big Box and LNG issues.

    But I haven’t heard enough about or from Cheryl yet to feel all that great about her either. She has an impressive resume and I like her ideas about the potential for increasing aquaculture and mariculture in Humboldt Bay, but I haven’t heard much else in the way of substance from her. Her performance in the KHUM interview wasn’t very impressive, at least to me. She seemed a bit scattered and surprisingly uninformed on a couple of issues (for example, she had apparently never even heard of “railbanking”).

    So I’m hoping that Rex falls short of the 50% mark and the campaign continues through November, giving voters a chance to hear more from both Rex and Cheryl…ideally, more actual substance. Yeah, I know, I know.

    Salzman is king of the last minute trick, he has been doing this for years, but unless the press covers it, the few people who read the blosgs will make no difference in the election. Remember how he used to “form public opinion” through letters to the editor, until he was caught.

    OMG ROFL! You are deflecting blame to Salzman? Hahahahahaha!!!!

    Mail-in ballots just announced:

    Bohn way out in front in the 1st, with about 66% to Seidner’s 26% (and 7% for DeModena). Apparently the mail-in ballots are probably going to be 1/3 of all ballot cast, so that’s a pretty steep hill for Seidner to climb. But of course she doesn’t need to win outright, just hold Bohn below 50%. But it looks like Bohn has a pretty good chance to win outright tonight.

    Fennell ahead in the 2nd district, but not by a huge margin: Fennell 1,624 votes (51.4%), Clendenen 1,523 votes (48.2%), so only a 101 vote lead for Fennell. Looks like it’s going to be very close.

    Meanwhile, in the 3rd district, it’s Lovelace with about 61% over Brooks with about 39%. No surprise there.

    Salzman probably paid for those filers, got NCJ to call Rex about it and held a gun to his head to make him lie..

    Poor Rex, attacked by a phone call from a journalist.

    Not a journalist, a writer from the NorthCoast Journal…

    Any predictions, folks? Last chance…”

    A tougher life for our kids and grandkids? Of course, with Rex and the rest of the crew in there, they will all at least have jobs. Right!!

    Looking at the local and the Wisconsin results, I’d say prepare for our brave new world, it’s every man (or woman) for himself. Blame money, the supreme court, tv, George Bush, etc., but people actually voted for a particular future. Not one I would have picked, but it wasn’t up to just me.

    “Seidner sure is a nice person”

    I don’t think you’ll find anyone arguing with that. And I think any honest observer would have to concede that she has an impressive resume, including some significant leadership experience. I think she would have made a good supervisor, but unfortunately she got a very late start, against a very well-funded, well-known opponent. While Bohn is obviously reviled by many of the folks who follow this blog, I think it’s pretty clear that he, too, is seen as a “nice person” by many people locally, in part because of his long history of volunteerism and non-profit fundraising in the community.

    Perhaps if Seidner had started campaigning a lot earlier, she might have had a better chance of at least forcing a run-off and then (maybe) have had a better chance in November (with the higher turnout that comes with having the Presidential race on the ballot). However, based on Bohn’s huge margin of victory in these absentee vote totals, it does seem like Bohn would have been pretty hard to beat, even under the best of circumstances for the Seidner campaign.

    Let’s see…a fisherman, a realtor, a waitress….look at all the average folks we have in office everywhere….few with anything close to Cheryl’s leadership experience.

    Oh right, she wasn’t ordained by the development community.

    No point for media to expose the corruption behind Bohn’s win now, right?

    I have no dog in this fight; however, I do know for a fact that Rex is NOT computer savy. A few years ago there was a Topix thread regarding Rex and other coaches. I sent Rex an email with a link and he called me to have me explain what I was talking about. Rex would have difficulty interacting via the internet. He is a face to face person who likes to try to have control over how people view him. Anyone remember him from his 4th Street Connection days?

    What Samantha J. says is what I was thinking. The far left idiots on here dont look at all the facts or can think outside their own little wacky box. You ppl cant comprehend that there are some ppl out there that just aren’t computer literate or spend all their time on the net, blogs, etc. Rex is the same age as my Husband, they are the same hands on type and have not wasted their life’s inside on the computer. I’m sure in some conversation he’s heard of the H.H. but has never really paid too much attention to it. Why would he, its all crapola anyways.

    …have not wasted their life’s inside on the computer.

    So if your job requires you to be inside on a computer your wasting your life? Fuck that sucks!

    …by the way, if your using a computer, you are also using your hands. Its really a sort of hands on experience. ;)

    What a bunch of crap. What leadership. The tribe is a few hundred folks at best. She worked with college kids getting them into programs. The lefties are just idiots with all this crap. You will not see Seiner run for anything again. I know 3 people who have dealt with her in all her so called leadership roles. None were impressed with much that she did or her abilities. Two thought she was a nice lady, one called her hard to deal with because she did not have the intellectual horsepower to understand what was going on. She was stuck in by the left cause they did not want someone they felt had a political future to get beat. Yes, watch what is happening with the HCCDC, the lefties eat their young.

    Seidner didn’t even know what rail banking was when Cliff interviewed her. She seems like a great person but not enuf experience.

    I don’t know that everything in life is fixable. But now we will have some leaders that are more in tune with the average persons desires in Humboldt County. The best part is that in almost every way Salzman and his followers were shut down. Understand he will go under his rock and keep up his shit, but he has been exposed to more people.

    Nah, but it’s amusing watching you inch closer to a meltdown because the vote didn’t go the way you’ve been yammering on about.

    ^^ what NCW said. Run for office Anon, if you think you can do better.

    Don’t be too hard on Rex or people will start feeling sorry for him.
