FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Congressional Candidate Sue Savary Reacts to Letters in OC Register and LA Times’ Daily Pilot that Reveal Rep. Rohrabacher is the Kremlin’s Congressman 
Newport Beach – September 26, 2016

Dr. Suzanne Savary, Candidate for U.S. Congress in the 48th District, wants further investigation into Rep. Rohrabacher’s support of ex-communist spy Vladimir Putin’s dangerous Russian regime based on letters in the June 30 (“The Kremlin’s Congressman”) and September 4 (“The Congressman of the Kremlin”) Orange County Register and in the September 2 (“Congressman’s Support for Putin’s Russia Puzzles”) LA Times’ Daily Pilot. Savary wants to at least know who pays for his travel to Russia, and she seeks answers to the following crucial questions: is his support of Putin undermining U.S. foreign policy, is he getting financial support from Putin, and is he sharing sensitive U.S. information with Putin or his Russian operatives? The current congressman for the 48th District, Dana Rohrabacher, has been called “The Kremlin’s Congressman” by longtime conservative magazine Commentary in April.  Rohrabacher has earned this title by bashing NATO in support of Putin, condoning Putin’s annexation of Crimea, and supporting the annexation of Azerbaijan.  He has done this even though Putin continues aggression throughout the world, including support of Assad in Syria.

Lawsuit Challenges High-density Harmony Housing Development
Project Would Devastate Wildlife Habitat, Increase Traffic and Air Pollution
HIGHLAND, Calif.— Public interest groups filed a lawsuit late yesterday challenging the city of Highland’s approval of the high-density Harmony development in Southern California. The remote development sits at the confluence of Mill Creek and the Santa Ana River and is directly adjacent to San Bernardino National Forest lands and will bring more than 3,600 houses to 1,657 acres of land acquired by Orange County Flood Control in the Seven Oaks Dam project that are currently home to numerous endangered species, rare habitats, wetlands and crucial wildlife connectivity corridors. “There’s nothing harmonious about the Harmony development,” said Ileene Anderson, a senior scientist with the Center for Biological Diversity.
