UPDATE ON CALIFORNIA'S MOST EXTREMIST CONGRESSMAN-- GARY MILLER: HE'S A CROOK AS WELL AS A NUT

>

Back in May I introduced DWT readers to California's most bat-shit, far right lunatic congressman. No, not Doolittle and not Pombo and not even Lungren. This certifiable kook is Gary Miller, who represents CA-42 (a suburban L.A. district taking in Chino, Yorba Linda, Diamond Bar, Mission Viejo... places we hear about on the traffic reports).

Today I found out two things about Miller. One: the Democrat attempting to mount a write-in campaign against him, Mark Hull-Richter, failed to gather enough valid signatures (he needed 2,461), so Miller is home free for re-election; and two: the L.A. Times ran a piece on Miller, exposing him as a tax cheat.

So we have to add "tax cheat" to his growing file which also includes real estate swindler, bribe-taker, and swinging participant in the Republican Culture of Corruption than has come to pervade Washington since Miller took over from CA-42's last corrupt congressman, Jay Kim (who wound up serving part of his term with an electronic ankle bracelet and under house arrest). And I might as well tell you about the picture now too. The xenophobic and racist Miller likes dressing up in Confederate officer drag and imagining how things might have been had the extreme right of the mid-1800's won their war against the U.S.A.

"When U.S. Rep. Gary Miller (R-Diamond Bar) sold 165 acres to the city of Monrovia in 2002," the L.A. Times story begins, "he made a profit of more than $10 million, according to a financial disclosure form he filed in Congress. Ordinarily, he would have had to pay state and federal taxes of up to 31% on that profit. Instead, Miller told the Internal Revenue Service and the state that Monrovia had forced him to sell the property under threat of eminent domain. That allowed him to shelter the profits from capital gains taxes for more than two years before he had to reinvest the money. But there is a problem with Miller's claim: Monrovia officials say that Miller sold the land willingly and that they didn't threaten to force him to sell."

Does this surprise you? It shouldn't. Miller is also not in prison for buying some cheap desert land and then collaborating with GOP gangland boss Jerry Lewis to sneak some earmarks through Congress that allowed for an expensive taxpayer-funded highway right to... his land, increasing the value gigantically. He sold the land immediately, of course. This is what "conservative" means to the Republican Party in 2006.

Miller claimed identical dubious exemptions for properties in Fontana (where Sammy Hagar grew up), cheating taxpayers out of millions of dollars. Unfortunately for Miller the City of Monrovia has Miller, a multimillionaire, on tape proving he's a bold-faced liar. Not that any of this will matter to his bizarre suburban constituents, who spend so much time commuting on over-crowded freeways that they are thoroughly brainwashed by the likes of Limbaugh and Hannity-- and pissed off. These are people with very bad lives and their only revenge is imposing the likes of Jay Kim and Gary Miller on the rest of us.

Actually, getting rid of this idiot is important to a lot of people here behing the "Orange Curtain". A lot of folks would vote against him if there was anybody challenging him, but he has a lot of money and power here. Let him get too drunk with that power and hang himself. Many will be ready!

I agree with the first post. This guy was Mayor of Diamond Bar while Jay Kim was in office and the two of them have done irreversable damage to our 'country living' community. We didn't even want that stupid Target store he swindled the government and the people into helping build.

The only problem is that after all the gerrymandering of districts, the 42nd is now 70% republican.

Dear GuanoWithTyranny, as the bat excretory flows from your narrow minded face.....The Hon. Gary Miller (in fact very honorable - if you have any concept of that word)is actually moderate in his views. Though, possibly extreme when his integrity and moral beliefs are at issue. I've known him since the "70's" when he was pounding nails (construction)to make a living. He's worked hard to get ahead and went into politics to make our government better. Not let leftist socialists like you take over. Have a nice day.

Let's not talk about tax cheats, especially with this administration in power. Tax cheat is one of the qualifications for a great job in Washington.

I, for one, even as a Republican, can't stand Miller. He's been a corrupt lout his entire time in congress. Just look at his own Wikipedia page.

I'm so excited to at least have a choice this primary season for three other Republican candidates.

i just moved to orange county about 10 months ago and have the dubious honor of having miller as my representative. i wish that there were another option but i'm heavily outnumbered in this very very red district. i've been very active in writing to miller about his various stances. i doesn't do a whole lot of good but at least he knows i'm paying attention. thanks for the info and keep up the informative work.

I made the terrible mistake of calling the sob telling him the kind of rotten shit he is. I gave the mtfkr, my whereabouts and soon enough; somebody broke into my house in diamond bar, put all shit upside down and took nothing eventough, I had valuable things they could have taken.
I have the feeling that it was him who send somebody to my house after I called the sob telling him the kind of shit that he is. I served in the military, so did my father, and now my son. I despise assholes that cry out support and never had the courage to take the fu*** bull by its horns. bush heads for one... a: did he go to vietnam?

Who cares if you went to Vietnam. Good for you, but you need to stop blaming government officials for somebody breaking into your house and not wanting any of your stuff. Maybe you don't have anything worth stealing.
