Garden Grove, CA – – Instead of forcing pro-communist Vice-Chairman Jeff LeTourneau to resign from the Party Committee, Diedre Nguyen and the OC Democratic Party agreed to allow him to continue as a Central Committee member with full voting rights.
“It’s outrageous that Diedre Nguyen and the Democratic Party of Orange County decided to allow Jeff LeTourneau to continue to make decisions about what their party stands for, which candidates receive money and support and which candidates are endorsed,” said former Senator Janet Nguyen. “They tried to sweep this under the rug by having him resign as Vice-Chairman, but they kept him on the committee where he will still pull the strings. To allow him to stay on the committee shows they agree with his values.”
Earlier this week LeTourneau made a Facebook post that praised communist leader Ho Chi Minh as a “liberator” and called American soldiers who fought in Vietnam “imperialists.” Janet Nguyen was the first person to demand that LeTourneau be removed from the Democratic Party of Orange County Central Committee.
