Press Release: For Immediate Release 11/22/16
Patrick Malloy announced that he will be running again for U.S. Representative for California’s 50th Congressional District in the next election. He indicated that this election will most likely be a Special Election, to be declared by the Secretary of State, pending a vacancy in the office by the Incumbent.
Hunter has paid over $60,000 back to his campaign, to demonstrate interest and dissuade questions of impropriety in advance of a Senate Ethics committee’s vetting customary to cabinet appointments
His home was put on the market before the election, and has a sale pending. According to the UT’s watchdog reporter on Nov. 16th 2016 his spokesperson did not answer questions about where the family would next live.
He’s vocalized his desire for a Deputy Secretary of Defense position in the media. The most likely candidate for Secretary of Defense is General James “Mad Dog” Mattis, of whom the incumbent has publicly praised.
No other challenger has placed better than Patrick Malloy against the incumbent since the redistricting. “Although we still have ballots to count, I want to declare that no matter what, we will see the name Patrick Malloy on the Ballot on the next election for US Representative in CD-50.”
PRESS RELEASE FROM PATRICK MALLOY, DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE FOR CONGRESS IN THE 50TH DISTRICT
October 26, 2016
In a prepared statement, Patrick Malloy responded to Duncan Hunter’s admission that his office knew of the problem of collecting National Guard reenlistment bonuses two years ago but did nothing about it. In a press release of October 24, 2016, Hunter called the Department of Defense “boneheaded” for this effort. Malloy responded by saying: “But where were you two years ago—obviously missing in action.”
Malloy stated that “Hunter knows what ‘boneheaded’ really means because he should have done something about it two years ago when the California National Guard informed him and even gave him draft legislation to correct the matter. Did Hunter draft legislation—no! The incumbent continues to misuse his status as a veteran so as to avoid his reputation for incompetence and to distract the voters from his corrupt personal use of campaign funds. He has left his buddies behind, which is the worst thing a soldier can do,” said Malloy.
Malloy added that the incumbent “is an expert at being a bonehead. His legislation to draft women last February and then disavowing it made him a national laughingstock. Even interns in a congressional office could do a better job than this incumbent,” Malloy concluded.

Malloy Denounces Hunter for Representing 'Big Money'
A story in the LA Times is reporting that Representative Duncan Hunter is pushing the US Coast Guard to buy an inferior ship that the USCG has repeatedly said it doesn’t want. The Aiviq, is a used icebreaker owned by one of Hunter’s top donors, Edison Chouest Offshore.
Patrick Malloy, Democratic candidate for Congress in the 50th district, states: “This is why I am running for Congress. Hunter does not represent California’s 50th district. He represents ‘Big Money’. His loyalty is to a Louisiana shipyard that has given him $18,000. We can name other examples of his campaign donor influence. I want to rid Congress of the wasteful corruption that Hunter represents. This corruption is endangering our national security.”
Malloy adds that “Our Coast Guard needs heavy icebreakers with military capabilities to challenge aggressive Russian behavior in the Arctic Ocean. We can better protect America by building the ships the Coast Guard wants right here on the West Coast,” Malloy concludes.

Malloy Denounces the Trump-Hunter 'Axis of Degradation'
Duncan Hunter, in an interview in the Washington Post on October 12, admitted to committing vile behavior similar to Trump’s ravings on the bus. Hunter also doubled down on his support of Trump given that he, Hunter, was one of the first congressmen to endorse Trump and that he was not backing away even if it jeopardized his own political career.
Malloy stated: “Hunter’s disrespect for women is evident not only in his opposition to women’s reproductive rights but also in his wide reputation as a ‘party animal’ in Washington DC. We should not be surprised that Hunter is excusing Trump on the bus since he’s admitting to similar conduct himself. What is surprising is that Hunter will not distance himself from Trump and Trump’s verbal promotion of sexual assault. We can do better than this ‘axis of degradation’ in the Trump-Hunter partnership,” Malloy concluded.

Hunter Must to Rescind his Endorsement of Trump .. Now
Patrick Malloy of Escondido, Democratic candidate for Congress in the 50th district, called today for the incumbent, Duncan Hunter of Alpine, to rescind his endorsement of Donald Trump for President. In a prepared statement, Malloy said “it is only right for Hunter to promptly rescind his endorsement of Trump given that Hunter was the first congressman to endorse Trump. Hunter should, then, also be one of the first to denounce Trump’s braggado about sexual assault and violence against women; Hunter's voting record, makes it appear that He does not respect women. He may have too much to hide about his own relationships with women given that he has been voted ‘party animal’ of the year twice by Capitol Hill staffers. This situation is intolerable—A real man needs to stand up and protect women.” concluded Malloy.

Vigil in El Cajon
Patrick Malloy, Democratic candidate for Congress in the 50th district, released a statement Thursday after attending the vigil in El Cajon for Alfred Olanga who was shot by police in El Cajon Tuesday.
"Our community is in rightful mourning for the death of Alfred Olanga in El Cajon earlier this week. Investigation of the police shooting should be prompt and transparent so as to assure all citizens of our community. All of this clear to me after attending the vigil in El Cajon Wednesday evening," stated Malloy.
Malloy went on to say that “it is also clear to me that we need to support El Cajon Mayor Bill Wells in his efforts to maintain calm in the city. We also need a much more thorough national conversation about guns and mental illness whether it is police dealing with psychologically stressed citizens or mentally ill persons gaining access to firearms. It is time to dig deeper into what is ailing individuals and how we can strengthen our society and reduce the incidence of violence," Malloy concluded.

REFLECTIONS ON THE 15TH ANNIVERSARY OF 9/11
15 years ago today, I was at my office in Manhattan across the street from Grand Central Station when the World Trade Center was hit. The Twin Towers were about four miles away as the crow flies and, of course, the immediacy and portent of the attacks became more evident at each second. Even before the second tower was hit, I knew that this was terrorism and that life would not be the same for our nation and for me personally.
The burning smell in the air was everywhere as I led my co-workers down the street and away from the World Trade Center and transportation hubs (which were rumored to be targets), I was grieved to think how many firefighters and first responders must have been inside the towers when they collapsed.
As we made our way home on foot on sooty streets, I had three thoughts: 1) this probably means our privacy will be a disappearing act; 2) patriotism will surge, and I predicted, correctly, that street vendors on the next day will be selling American flags instead of cheap umbrellas; and 3) how will the political leadership of our country use this?
We have experienced the answers to the third thought week- by- week over the last 15 years. Yes, the precise contours of loss of privacy have unfolded to the point where secrets of government itself cannot be kept. We have seen the immense tragedy of Iraq and the falsehoods used to justify the 2003 invasion. We will have veterans to care for from the Iraq war for the next 80 years.
And we know that the general population was not asked to make sacrifices, just the piling up of debt for future generations. How did we get to the point that sacrifice is a word used only to describe veterans and their immediate families? Why should we tolerate a do-nothing Congress when so much needs to be done? Why can’t there be a national revival instead of poisonous politics and grotesque economic inequality?
The answers to these questions are unfortunately not coming from the presidential contest. But I am seeing the answers in the thoughts and prayers of our people. As I get to listen to so many of you during my campaign for a seat in the US Congress, I hear more than dismay. I hear a yearning for something fresh that will reflect the best instincts of the American people. That yearning cannot be denied. Let us hope that it will not take another 15 years to emerge from a tragedy that has been made by terrorists but also by those who have taken advantage of the horror of 9/11. Continue to yearn.

HUNTER UNRESPONSIVE TO DEBATE CHALLENGE
50th District congressional candidate, Patrick Malloy of Escondido, reported that the incumbent, Duncan Hunter of Alpine, has failed to respond to Malloy’s challenge to debate.
Malloy, in a statement released on September 7, stated:
“It has been over three weeks since I challenged the incumbent to debate and there was no response from him by the requested date (September 4, 2016). This is a disappointment for me but a tragedy for the voters of the district because they will not have a chance to see in depth the machinations and flaws of the incumbent. Hunter spends his time in DC as a noted ‘party animal’ and vaping congressman. He is a further embarrassment not only because he uses his campaign finance dollars as a personal ATM but also because of his slavish support of Donald Trump.”
Malloy criticized the incumbent for not having the common decency to respond to the debate challenge. Malloy concluded by stating that this should not surprise anyone given his record and his temperament. He further concluded that the “media needs to highlight the incumbent’s behavior given the evidence of corrupt behavior and his ‘hiding from the public.’”

Press Release From Patrick Malloy, Candidate for Congress CA-50

PATRICK MALLOY ENDORSED BY LABOR
It is a distinct pleasure to report to you that, in the last week, I have received enthusiastic endorsements from both the San Diego and Imperial Counties Labor Council and the North County Labor Alliance for my candidacy for the 50th Congressional District against my GOP incumbent opponent, Duncan Hunter of Alpine.
The incumbent is no friend of labor. He should be losing because of his host of bad votes in Congress that hurt working families. Add to this his shameful support of Donald Trump, who sends jobs overseas and is financially beholden to China and Russia. Hunter and his wealthy pal Trump do not understand the complicated issues facing working families today. They live in a world of money and privilege.
I am determined to level the playing field for working families and to unseat anti-labor politicians like Rep Hunter. With Labor’s endorsement, we can win the election in a year that is both volatile and a source of opportunity for progressive candidates like me who advocate the Labor cause and priorities.

HUNTER JEOPARDIZES NATIONAL PARKS, MALLOY CHARGES
“This week, the country celebrates the 100th anniversary of the National Parks system.
Yet, we must remember that incumbent Duncan Hunter of Alpine has one of the most dismal environmental records in the Congress; he is no friend of national parks,” Patrick Malloy, congressional candidate in CA-50th District, charged today. “Hunter has a paltry 3% out of a possible 100% rating from the prestigious League of Conservation Voters,” said Malloy. “This is a disgrace to the people of our district,” added Malloy. “It proves that he has failed all who are committed to safeguarding our national heritage.”
California, home to Yosemite National Park, among others, contains many of the crown jewels of the park system. “The incumbent has voted consistently to cut national park funding - more than 10% in one year - therefore leaving our national parks in jeopardy,” Malloy stated. He vowed to restore national park funding, if elected.
“National Parks are often called America best idea,” Malloy said. Directly quoting columnist Nickolas Kristof, Malloy stated: “These public lands are arguably our most democratic space. Our nation’s most valuable assets are owned, not by private equity tycoons, but by you and me.”
In remarks prepared for delivery at a campaign event in San Marcos Friday evening, Malloy said that “this week people throughout the country are celebrating the 100th anniversary of the founding of the national park system—but we know one person who will not: Duncan Hunter.”
“Besides voting to severely cut funding for national parks, Hunter voted to allow increased construction of pipelines through national parks, to permit accelerated drilling on public lands, and to allow dumping of coal mining waste into rivers and streams,” Malloy stated.
“If Hunter has his way,” Malloy said, ‘the national park system will be slowly gutted. Hunter is completely disinterested in the wise stewardship of our land.” A century from now, if Congress follows Hunter’s lead, our grandchildren will have lost these national treasures. We should be celebrating the 100th anniversary this week, not worrying about whether the parks will be there for our grandchildren,” concluded Malloy.

Rep. Duncan Hunter Must Address ‘Trump TV’ Rumors
The hiring of Breitbart News chairman Stephen Bannon as Donald Trump’s new campaign CEO and reports of ousted Fox News CEO Roger Ailes serving as an unofficial campaign advisor have lent credence to rumors that Trump not only plans to launch a television network upon losing the election, but that might have been his plan all along.
Vanity Fair, New York Magazine, NPR, CNN, the LA Times, and the Atlantic have reported on the rumors this week, noting that unlike most network launches, “Trump TV” would have a built-in audience of millions, plus a wealth of contact information and advertiser-ready user data gathered throughout the course of the campaign.
While transforming Trump supporters into advertising targets for a Fox News rival is a sound business strategy, it does not reflect the ideals of democracy or the dignity of this country’s highest office. Any elected official still endorsing a candidate who is more invested in his own enrichment than the betterment of America is not fit to serve the public.
Rep. Duncan Hunter (CA-50) falls into this category. Considering that only 45% of district voters chose Trump in the June primary and polling numbers continue to plummet, it is clear that the majority of the 50th district—people Duncan Hunter swore an oath to represent—do not agree with his choice for president.
So the question remains: Why has Duncan Hunter refused to revoke his endorsement of Donald Trump? Is he strategically positioning himself for a job at Trump TV in the event he loses his Congressional seat in November?
Duncan Hunter’s constituents deserve an answer to this pressing issue.

As a Surrogate for Donald Trump, Duncan Hunter Mocks His Own Constituents
“Duncan Hunter, (R-CA) a surrogate and prominent member of Donald Trump’s campaign, has repeatedly slammed and dishonored veterans, women, minorities, and the disabled in his own congressional district,” Patrick Malloy, congressional candidate, said today. “Trump and Hunter are joined at the hip; they are ideological twins,” he stated.
In a letter to the Republican National Committee (RNC) this week, one hundred Republicans pulled their support for Trump and urged the RNC to do the same. Yet, during this same week, Politico, an online news source, carried an article written by Hunter wholeheartedly supporting Trump’s candidacy.
“Hunter, as Trump’s surrogate, then has attacked: Gold Star families of soldiers who have died serving their country, mocked disabled veterans among others who are disabled, and spoke in disgraceful ways about minorities and women. Hunter has only praise for Trump and silence about Trump’s disgraceful statements,” Malloy said. “Silence is compliance.”
“The incumbent also needs to explain why he uses his campaign financing fund as a personal ATM account: paying for video games; jewelry and travel in Italy; pricy private school lunches for his kids; expenses at Disneyland, Legoland, and Sea World; and vacations at a Hawaiian resort,” Malloy stated. “This is either sloppy or corrupt.”
The Federal Elections Commission (FEC) has recently launched two inquiries into Hunter’s campaign spending, and Hunter has hired a lawyer to represent him.
Malloy stated that he has “lost patience with this hurtful, and do-nothing Congress that does not meet even the basic needs of this District.” He is an independent voice who will represent all in the district.

Rep. Duncan Hunter Praises Trump as Republican Support Erodes
– The list of prominent Republicans who refuse to support Donald Trump expands by the day, and yet Congressman Duncan D. Hunter’s (CA-50) endorsement persists, evidenced by the glowing appraisals of the GOP nominee submitted to news outlets on a regular basis (latest: Politico, Aug. 11).
If Hunter thinks he knows better than the following Republican leaders, lawmakers, national security experts and billionaire megadonors who believe a Trump Presidency would be an utter disaster for this country, he owes his constituents—especially longtime conservative supporters—a public explanation.

Patrick Malloy, candidate for Congress in the 50th District, has challenged the incumbent, Duncan Hunter of Alpine, to two debates in October.
In a letter sent to Hunter on August 15, Malloy said there should be two debates. The first should be on veterans’ issues and the second on the economy and the environment because these issues are of top concern in the District, according to Malloy.
Malloy stated that the District deserves debates given a deeply divided America—an America that needs sharper clarifications and conversations than the 30 second TV ads or 140 character tweets will give us. In his letter, Malloy said that a neutral veterans’ group should host the debates and that civility and a sense of patriotism should be expected. Malloy teased the incumbent by saying that he would let him decide the dates and location given “the hectic Congressional agenda and Hunter’s busy schedule as a Trump spokesperson.” Malloy asked for Hunter’s response by Labor Day and expects a positive response given that Congress will be in recess in September and October.
For further information or questions contact Patrick Malloy directly at 760-809-5651 or his campaign staff at 760-471-1765.

Time for “Friend of Military” Rep. Duncan Hunter to Revoke Trump Endorsement
– Scandal after scandal has suggested Donald Trump’s respect for the military is less than genuine, so it makes little sense that Duncan Hunter, a U.S. Marine reservist and “friend of the military” who represents a military-heavy congressional district, still supports the GOP nominee.
Duncan Hunter, one of the first members of Congress to endorse Trump, also serves as his campaign co-chairman on Capitol Hill. Duties apparently include unyielding devotion and feint public disapproval for behavior that would’ve instantly disqualified any other presidential candidate in American history.
Trump on the Military:
· Trump disparaged the Gold Star parents of U.S. Army Capt. Humayun Khan while his Veterans Affairs advisor spread online rumors that Capt. Khan was a terrorist in disguise.
· Trump doesn’t rule out using nuclear weapons, putting the entire U.S. military and millions of innocent civilians at risk.
· Trump “always wanted” a Purple Heart and was happy to get one the “easy way” from a veteran’s gift.
· Trump claimed he raised $6 million for veterans’ charities and only wrote the checks—minus a few hundred thousand—after intense media pressure.
· Trump accused U.S. soldiers deployed in Iraq of stealing aid money.
· Trump said he would command troops to commit war crimes such as torturing and killing the families of alleged terrorists.
· Trump said Senator John McCain, decorated naval aviator and former POW, isn’t a really a hero because “he was captured.”
· Trump thinks working hard and building buildings are sacrifices on par with military service.
· Trump dodged the draft and told Howard Stern’s radio show that avoiding STDs in the New York dating scene was his “personal Vietnam.”
· Trump said his years at an expensive military prep school gave him “more training militarily than a lot of the guys that go into the military.”
Any one of these offenses would be enough to revoke an endorsement of Trump, yet Hunter’s loyalty endures. In late July he penned a loving tribute to his nominee in USA TODAY; and during the media frenzy for reactions to the Khan story, he was one of few Republicans to say—through a spokesman—that he was “still on board with Trump” while admitting the blunder.

Rep. Duncan Hunter’s Campaign Spending Probe: Public Demands Answers
– While Congressman Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) conducts an independent audit to explain his use of campaign funds for video games, school tuition, Disneyland souvenirs, Jack-in-the-Box combos and other questionable expenditures, his constituents demand answers.
Due to a virtual drought of media statements and interviews, the people Duncan Hunter swore an oath to represent have not been informed on the seriousness of the situation or when it will be resolved. On their behalf, the Committee to Elect Patrick Malloy respectfully asks Rep. Hunter:
· Your spokesman told the San Diego Union-Tribune that you are working with the FEC to amend past disclosure reports. Does this mean you are under an official FEC audit?
· Why did you hire Washington D.C. law firm Berke Farah LLP—which is well-known for taking campaign spending cases—and pay them nearly $3,000 in fees out of your campaign funds?
· You already reimbursed your campaign $12,000 for personal expenses, but how is it possible to allow so many “mistaken expenditures” happen in the first place?
· Your personal financial disclosures state you have less than $1,000 in reportable assets, so how exactly did you afford that $12,000 repayment?
· What kind of campaign consulting does your wife perform to justify her $3,000 per month salary for the last two years?
· After spending accusations surfaced in April, you suggested to the press that your wife’s role as a consultant and campaign manager had been reduced. If that’s the case, why did you pay her $3,000 as usual in June after a brief two-month break?
· On the subject of campaign funds, how do you feel about your last donor report (April 1–June 30) showing zero contributions from within your own district?
If Congressman Duncan Hunter respects his duty to represent the residents of California’s 50th District, he will make himself available to media to answer these pressing questions.

Hunter’s Campaign Funds Used to Pay for Upscale School Lunches While He Supports “Pink Slime” in the National School Lunch Program?
Patrick Malloy, Democratic candidate for Congress in California’s 50th District, today asked Duncan Hunter Jr to “come clean” and tell his constituents if his campaign funds are being used to pay for his children’s school lunches. “Voters in the 50th District need to know how Hunter’s campaign funds are used and if his expenses are actually legal” Malloy stated.
Earlier in the week, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported that Hunter’s campaign financing accounts showed that he spent a total of $1,300 at Ki’s Restaurant in Cardiff, a company that provides daily school lunches to Christian United Schools where Hunter’s children attend. The charges to Hunter’s campaign accounts occurred during the school year but not during the summer.
Ki’s web site advertises their lunches as “all-natural” and “free of preservatives, hormones, antibiotics and fillers,” in what appears to be gourmet treat. Yet, House records show that Hunter has voted for reduced access to the national school lunch program for disadvantaged children.
“These constraints on the school lunch program are forcing school districts, and even entire states, to return to the use of “pink slime” in school district menus because that’s what government funds provide,” Malloy said.
The discovery of pink slime in ground meats several years ago created an uproar when Americans learned that chlorine bleach, “puffs of ammonia,” and meat scrapes usually reserved for pet food, were being added to ground meats in school lunch programs and in meat sold at local supermarkets. Within the last years, more than 7 states have reaccepted pink slime in the meat supply for school lunches because of budgetary constraints. In other states, local schools districts can either accept or reject pink slime meats.
“Hunter’s neglect and complete indifference to his district has got to stop,” Malloy said. “Let’s end his elitism with new leadership in Washington. Our children deserve better.” The Federal Elections Commission (FEC) has given Hunter until July 18 to provide a full disclosure of his “campaign” spending.

PATRICK MALLOY, DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE FOR US CONGRESS, 50TH DISTRICT.
MALLOY SLAMS ‘HUNTER GAMES’
In remarks prepared for supporters at the Fallbrook Avocado Festival in Fallbrook Sunday, Patrick Malloy attacked the ethical deficiencies of Congressman Duncan Hunter Jr. of Alpine. Malloy made three main points in his presentation:
1) Duncan Hunter Jr.’s personal finances and campaign finance problems are emblematic of a congressional district that has been mired in scandals for over two decades. Rep. Duke Cunningham was sentenced to jail for corruption years ago, and Hunter’s father, long-time congressman in the district, was caught in property tax irregularities. These crooked games MUST stop!
2) We have become too used to corruption in public office. The personal use of campaign funds by Duncan Hunter Jr. has been denounced even by the Republican Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan. This is, then, a rare bipartisan moment. While some voters are calling for Duncan Hunter Jr. to resign, I say that is pre-mature; the better way is for the voters to repudiate Hunter in November so as to send a powerful ethical message that parties cannot ignore. Let the VOTERS end these Hunter games.
3) Duncan Hunter Jr. is, according even by the San Diego U-T, an ‘embarrassment.’ Surely we can do better. If you cannot manage your personal or campaign finances, what business do you have voting on complex issues of the federal budget? We need business sense in Washington. As a businessman, I have to follow the highest professional standards. Personal integrity MUST matter. We should be expecting more, not less, of our representatives. I think it is time to finally end these crooked Hunter games—together, we can throw him out and replenish American idealism and re-ignite the American dream!
