Political Action Committee (PAC) Established to Flood Irvine Mailboxes with Vicious Attacks & False Claims
Hit pieces, paid for by hard-to-trace “dark money” Political Action Committees (PACs), have begun fouling Irvine voters’ mailboxes, taking aim at Councilmember Larry Agran. The mailers falsely claim Agran supported the establishment of the Orange County Power Authority (OCPA).
In fact, Agran has been a vocal critic of the OCPA, which was established with millions of dollars of Irvine taxpayer funding by Mayor Farrah Khan and Councilmember Anthony Kuo — months before Agran joined the City Council.
The return address on the attack mailers matches that of Crummitt & Associates, a firm that performs financial records and reporting functions for political campaigns. Its principal, Gary Crummitt, is listed as the treasurer of the just-created PAC attacking Agran.
Crummit was also the treasurer of Khan’s 2020 mayoral campaign and is handling her re-election campaign finances this year.
