"I never try to judge personal mistakes of private persons. We are all humans and we can make mistakes. I leave the judgments to the judicial system and to God, but when it comes to people who are running for office, especially on a platform of “Conservative” values, like Mr. George Schnittgrund, and that they believe that they have the power to tell us that it is not safe to grow a plant in our home, and we should become a felon for just possessing a plant like marijuana, and they can tell you what is safe for your body... well, then I have a problem when such politicians like George Schnittgrund gets a DUI and he does not disclose it during his campaign and when he comes on the air with me.


Then, what I find more disturbing, is that I have found out that after the DUI, according to the Court record below, Mr. Schnittgrund has been driving several times, in front of the Lake Havasu Police officer Sgt Jerry Burns (the officer who arrested him), taking photos of his home.

The police officer, Mr. Jerry Burns, did file also a restraining order, or injunction, as shown in the court case below. This is for me the most disturbing part. Becoming obsessed with a peace officer who arrested you because of your mistakes, and involving his family. How would you feel if was your wife and kids and a person who you have arrested, starts driving around your home taking photos of your private life (carrying a shotgun in the back of his car)?
No, this is not acceptable in my opinion, especially coming from somebody who supposed to represent us at the Capitol with our tax dollar.
And the worst part, it is the way Mr. Schnittgrund avoids or deflects to answer to my questions as you will be able to read in this document regarding his case and he tries always to blame it on somebody else, or when he tries to “warn me”. I am not impress. It may be just my opinion, but I am very disappointed.
I just copied and pasted our instant message exchange I had with Mr. Schnittgrund on FaceBook, and you can decide what to think of that. By the way, as candidate for public office, I consider every correspondence with Mr. Schnittgrund, as public domain. Never confidentiality was requested by his part. I will give the opportunity to Mr.. Schnittgrund to rebuke all my facts, and more important the facts that LHC officer Jerry Burns will bring on the air and the copies of the Police report and court documents."
