What’s Mark Meuser up to?

Mark MeuserMeuser, you’ll recall, is the Walnut Creek civil litigation attorney who ran against state Sen. Mark DeSaulnier, D-Concord, in 2012 (a race DeSaulnier won, 61.5 percent to 38.5 percent). More recently, he’s been donning Minuteman garb to deliver speeches on the nation’s Founding Fathers at meetings of local Republican groups.

Reports filed Friday with the Secretary of State’s office show Meuser, 39, this year created the Bay Area Republican Political Action Committee, which he funded with $10,500 of his own money. Most of that money already has been spent, including $7,000 on television ad production and $2,500 for print ads in the Antioch Herald. He also registered a BARepublican.com website, though it’s not active yet.

But Meuser is being a bit cryptic about what it’s all for.

“The PAC has not spent any money on behalf of any candidate,” he said in an email conversation Monday. “The PAC is preparing for this November’s election and the money it spent was in preparation for that.”

    I wish I could hear what he is saying, but his tie got stuffed into my ears, blocking the message.
    (Hint, try a lapel pin next time)

    Ya’ know, the Contra Costa Young Democrats — http://www.facebook.com/ContraCostaYoungDems and http://www.twitter.com/CoCoYoungDems — also raised about $7,500.00 [from 40+ dues-paying members, not just one person] since forming in mid-2013, and that group has spent it helping folks like Tim Sbranti and Tom Torlakson dominate their races.
