Wagner Cleared

The California Democratic Party (CDP) declared a series of curiously motivated accusations against 24th District Congressional hopeful Brett Wagner entirely inaccurate last week. Controversy flared last year when several local Democrats – supposedly acting in the name of the CDP and citing perceived inaccuracies in Wagner’s credentials – openly questioned his validity as a candidate. Acting upon a request from Wagner – also a Democrat – the CDP investigated the matter and concluded that not only was there no evidence to back up the accusations, but the accusers have no authority under CDP.
