KFI AM Radio talk show DJ’s held a rally in Glendora to help on a recall campaign against Assemblyman Anthony Adams.
Popular radio personalities John Kobylt and Ken Chiampou, organizers of the recall Adams campaign, kicked off the final stretch of the race to get more signatures to recall the freshman Assemblyman.
One protestor, Brian Knapp of Glendora said “It sucks man, Adams lied.” Referring to his vote on tax hikes.
As drivers honked their horns in support Thursday afternoon, many held signs calling for Adams immediate recall. “Adams lied, my Wallet Cried” read one sign while another had a more comical approach with a cartoon of a noxious odor that spelled out ADAMS emanating from a toilet reading simply RECALL Adams!
A local character actor, “Ditry Wally”, 90, said he was out to support the effort to get Adams out of office. The actor who credits his 5 young wives for keeping him young said he wanted to see Adams recalled as he lied. “Tell the truth, live a clean life and the lord will take care of you.” was Dirty Wally’s mantra before he zoomed off into the sunset in his brand new Lexus convertible.
The recall effort began in February after Adams, R-Claremont, voted alongside Democrats to support a state budget plan that included $13 billion in temporary tax hikes. Adams had campaigned for office on a promise to not raise taxes.
The campaign collected over 52,000 signatures only 36,000 signatures needed by Oct. 13 to force a special recall election.
