October 23, 2022

It has reached the point that the character of the person running for office does not matter anymore, as long as there is an “R” in front of the candidate’s name that’s good enough.

And with the lack of newspapers covering local elections, residents refuse to research their candidate, staying in their social media bubble.

Witness the Cerritos’ Republican Club throwing their full-throated support behind Rep. Michelle Steel.

As much as many of the Republicans in the city disagree with this paper, I would highly doubt that the club is against many of the following acts that Steel voted against.

Ready readers, here is Steel’s NO voting record courtesy of votesmart.org:

Women’s Health Protection Act ’22

The WHPA was a bill that would protect the right to abortion nationally, and block medically unnecessary restrictions and bans on abortion care.
