Have you seen this child?

ccRP is tom del beccaro’s personal mickey mouse clubAn Amber Alert may soon be released for missing child-actor, Thomas G. Beccaro, writer, producer, and director of the unsuccessful Contra Costa GOP. Tom has been missing from important political debates and party leadership in Contra Costa County for years. Here are the details of the bulletin:

WHO: Tom Del Beccaro, CC GOP Chair and #2 Republican statewide
WHO CARES?: HalfwayToConcord.com, Republican rank and file, and California FPPC want answers over charges of massive mismanagement, electoral failure, and bogus reporting.
DESCRIPTION: Petulant, rapidly aging with L.A. pony tail that even Martinez councilman Mark Ross, had the sense to lose years ago.
FAVORITE PHRASE: “Don’t you know who I am?”
LAST SEEN: Belittling office workers, volunteers, vendors, and those who dare disagree with him.
BUZZ: Current rumor says Tom has fled the country with Nagaraja Rao, Chairman of the county Democratic central committee, to avoid having to answer embarrassing questions about how they run their respective party organizations.
LAST HEARD FROM: Misuse of Party e-mail list to order California Republicans to buy his book for Christmas or God (i.e. Tom) will withhold party favors.
ADDRESS: Unknown, as CC GOP lost its lease with no known forwarding address.
CONTACT: Unknown, as former ED has left and no one wants to work with a megalomaniac.

Tom: We love you and hope you get some help. Let us know you’re OK and leave a message at 925-215-8463!

Fannie Mae’s golden parachute for Franklin Raines

, will receive a pension of $114,000 per month for life plus health and life insurance benefits.

Apparently, he retired before he could be dismissed for Enronesque mismanagement and apparent FCC reporting manipulation that produced over $9 billion dollars of falsely stated profits since 2001.

I hope he chokes on it.
