Torrance, CA – Republican David Hadley sure seems to like those anti-immigration Republicans in his party. Trump has called Mexicans rapists and has repeatedly called for building a wall with Mexico. Yet, Hadley never really forcefully denounced him. Now, Hadley has taken $1,000 from Governor Pete Wilson, a prime supporter of California Proposition 187, a 1994 law that would have denied public services to illegal immigrants if it had been found constitutional.

Pretty sure Hadley won’t denounce or give back that money from Pete Wilson. Why? Because he, too, agrees with their anti-immigrant beliefs. Hadley even proudly keynoted the notoriously anti-immigrant Freedom Center retreat with a speech called, “How Conservatives Can Win in California.”

“I’m sure the voters in the 66th District would like to know that David Hadley has been hanging around with these extreme anti-immigration Republicans. As the saying goes, you are the company you keep. He needs to denounce all that Pete Wilson stands for, and return that money. Otherwise he has just proven what we all know to be true: that he is hiding his true record. He is too extreme for the South Bay,” says Mike Shimpock, campaign consultant.

“Yet another flare-up at the refinery is just not acceptable for the people who live in Torrance," said Al Muratsuchi candidate for Assembly for the 66th District, which includes Torrance. “The refinery’s use of the highly toxic modified hydrofluoric acid, a chemical that if accidentally released could threaten the lives of hundreds of thousands of South Bay residents, is of great concern. That’s why I am calling for a ban on the use of modified hydrofluoric acid. This dangerous chemical does not belong in a residential community like Torrance. We need to find safer alternatives to this chemical."

Al Muratsuchi’s six-point Torrance Refinery Safety plan is listed below:

"I condemn Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump’s recently released 2005 taped comments he made on Access Hollywood about women in the strongest of terms. Not only are his comments demeaning to women, they also reference sexual assault. Unbelievably, Trump said that he could grab a woman as he pleases, just because he is a 'star.' Domestic violence and sexual assault, in any form, are unacceptable and cannot be tolerated. Because of this, and the many other degrading statements Trump has said about women throughout the campaign, I agree with many in his party that Trump should drop out of the race."

"I also call on Republican Assemblymember David Hadley to demand that Donald Trump drop out of the race. So far, he has not condemned the tape. What’s worse, he even attended a Trump-sponsored event at Trump National Golf Club on Friday, the same day that the tape was released. But then again, Hadley isn’t exactly a friend to women."

Rancho Palos Verdes, CA – Today, Al Muratuschi, candidate for Assembly for the 66th District, joined women’s rights activists Gloria Allred and Sandra Fluke as well as prominent women’s groups such as the National Abortion Rights Action league (NARAL) and the National Organization for Women (NOW) outside the Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes. They denounced Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump’s behavior and comments against women, including allegations in a lawsuit against Trump National Golf Club that he fired women who weren’t “pretty enough.”

“We want our daughter to grow up in a country that respects women, that does not discriminate against women based on their gender, age or appearance. A country with a President that supports equal pay, family leave and child care. A President who supports a woman’s right to choose,” says Muratsuchi.

Torrance, CA - Al Muratsuchi’s campaign to retake the 66th Assembly District seat continues to gain momentum as California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom endorses him in his bid to represent the South Bay.

I know he is the best candidate to represent the South Bay because he will bring the fight for good jobs, women’s reproductive choice and funding for schools to Sacramento. Most importantly, Al Muratsuchi votes his conscience and I know he will work aggressively to ensure that the air quality is safe for a region that has been too exposed, for too long, to polluting industries,” said Lieutenant Governor Newsom.

Hadley is trying to trick voters by hiding his true record

Torrance, CA - Just like Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump, the 66th District's Republican and Tea Partier Assemblymember David Hadley is trying to trick voters by hiding his true record. And, just like his party's nominee, he'll say anything to get elected, whether it is true or not.

Contrary to Hadley's lies, for example, Al Muratsuchi, candidate for Assembly for the 66th District, never took any oil money or donations. The truth is that David Hadley has taken $50,000 from rich oil donors, including the Koch Brothers, and even supported fracking. He also never voted against oil drilling.

What else has he lied about?

Mailer disguises campaign issue as legislative one, an illegal move

Torrance, CA – Republican Assemblyman David Hadley is up to his old tricks again, saying one thing and doing another and always hiding from the truth. This time, he has apparently used state taxpayer funds for a state mailer that looks and reads like a campaign mailer. Entitled, “Time to derail the bullet train,” it came from the office of “Assemblyman, 66th District, David Hadley.” But the mailer, in its look and message, is really a campaign mailer.

The problem? It is illegal to put campaign issues in a state, taxpayer-funded mailer. And David Hadley knows that.

“David Hadley has just violated state law by spending taxpayer money to send out a campaign mailer that is disguised as a legislative mailer to thousands of voters in the South Bay. This is outrageous, and downright illegal. In look, feel and tone this was a campaign mailer. The voters just paid for a mailer for the David Hadley for Assembly campaign, not one from Assemblyman David Hadley. It is wrong, and we won’t stand for it,” says Mike Shimpock, campaign consultant.
