    Most interesting money situation
    ————————————————————————-
    Mary Hayashi (D) – $690,733 cash on hand; no debt
    Roman Reed (D) – $72,336 cash on hand; $58,034 debt (incl. $40k loan from candidate)
    Bob Wieckowski (D) – $152,440 cash on hand; no debt
    Peter Kuo (R) – $109,594 cash on hand; $7,541 debt (incl. $5k loan from candidate)

    Only two can make it through the gate to November.
    This a race where creativity and imagination can come to a pinnacle.
    What can Hayashi do to make herself palatable, while avoiding her HUGE problem?
    I can’t see her having more than a dozen people willing to walk precincts on her behalf.

    How do you tell voters you aren’t a crook when you are still on three years probation for stealing $2,450 worth of clothes.
    Does she stick with the story that it all happened because she got distracted on her cell phone and forgot to pay?

    Are 50.1% of the public willing to elect a person who is on 3 years probation? Wow, at some point, all the money in the world can’t overcome such a problem.

    Will she face the problem head on and yet stick with the contention that it was as she said—in her Jan. 9th, 2012 press release–
    –”The simple fact is I unintentionally walked out of a store with items I had not paid for”
    OR
    –”“There were a number of personal factors that led to the situation where I made this absentminded error. My medical condition may have complicated the situation” (the original brain tumor story, since discarded when she ran for supervisor)
    OR, a favorite–
    –”Losing track of how fast you are driving is no excuse for speeding. And losing track of clothing I was purchasing is no excuse for walking out of a store without paying”
    (Yes, very similar situations)

    Lastly, how will her opposition play it.
    I think if polling shows her close to being one of the top two, the others slam her in creative ways that make her post conviction statements appear absurd.
    Should be fun.

    Hopefully if she appears to be in contention, someone will ask her about the police report, which shows she brought a Neiman Marcus bag with her from Hayward, which she then used to steal the goods.
    She has never explained where that EXTRA bag came from.
    She had no explanation so she copped a plea. A judge or jury would have laughed at her excuse and explanations.
