Aguilar Says Yes to Drug Money

Below is a press release from the Paul Chabot Campaign. As I am a major leader in the Rialto Community Coalition and have worked tirelessly I find this post to have great value.
San Bernardino, CA – October 20 – Military veteran, law enforcement officer, small business owner, and Congressional candidate, Paul Chabot, wants to inform the voters of the 31st Congressional District just who is contributing money to Pete Aguilar.

Pete Aguilar has accepted $3,000 in contributions from the Marijuana Policy Project, a radical pro-pot organization committed to the legalization of illicit drugs.
In recent years, drug use among teenagers has risen substantially. Today 20 percent of school age children use illegal drugs. If Aguilar truly cared about education, he would not pander to the pro-legalization crowd.
“This is a deeply troubling affiliation,” said Chabot spokesman Ryan Hall. “We know that marijuana use decreases brain activity, heightens cancer risks, and leads to poor performance in schools.”
Unlike his opponent, Paul Chabot has spent his career protecting children. To help keep children off drugs and out of gangs he founded several organizations including:  Drug Free Rancho Cucamonga, the Coalition for a Drug Free California, and the Inland Valley Drug Free Coalition. As a volunteer reserve deputy sheriff and California Parole Board member, he worked with juvenile offenders and witnessed firsthand the devastating effects drugs have on our youth.
“Pete’s views on this issue are completely out of step with the Inland Empire’s middle class residents who struggle to keep their children away from drugs and gangs. Even Governor Jerry Brown has voiced his opposition and is not supporting Pete’s platform of drug legalization.”
If adults cannot say no to drugs, how do we expect our children to say no? We call upon Aguilar to return the drug money and apologize to parents and teachers for setting a bad example.


FEC Filing (including Pelosi and others)
Chabot won a clear and decisive victory in the primary election, placing first as the top vote getter. He faced six other candidates and garnered over 26% of the vote after being out-spent by his next closest opponent 11 to 1 and placed nearly 10-points above the second place finisher.
