Rep. Darrell Issa, on protestors at the Orange County GOP's annual Flag Day Fundraiser this week:
"They’re pathetic. There were almost none. There’s a couple million people in the surrounding communities and to have those few tells you the real momentum of this movement has really died. The same has been happening at our office where they come every Tuesday. There’s less every week."
Republicans at the event also said it is critical for them to continue to win Orange County. Issa told the crowd. "“If not for Orange County, I might be standing here, but it wouldn’t be as a congressman,” His district straddles Orange and San Diego counties, and he was sent back to Congress by just 2,300 votes in November.

Indivisible 49 at Vista City Council Meeting - June 13
Thank you to the many members who represented us at the Vista City Council Meeting this week. Before our members even had the chance to speak, the Council assured us that our permit to continue protests at Issa's office would be renewed. Still, many people spoke eloquently on our behalf about our right to free speech and assembly. Democracy in action is a beautiful thing! Video of the meeting is here.
