We’re beginning to believe that Ron George didn’t go far when he chose retirement. Rather, he installed his minions and cohorts into positions of power to provide political and legal cover for his undignified exit from the stage in the face of serious allegations regarding ongoing financial impropriety in the organizations he was entrusted to run. Like good little soldiers that obey orders, the minions and cohorts sought to have him raised to demigod status, raining praise upon everything he did much like they did with his top lieutenant, Mr. Vickrey.
I’m guessing that if the “Ronald George State Office Complex” came up for a real democratic vote it would have been shot down in flames. A similar democratic fate would be awaiting a “William Vickrey conference center.” While most government agencies generally wait until someone is dead to name stuff after them, there is a neuro-psychological benefit to elevating someone to demigod status by naming something after them before they die. For one thing, there are those that will bitterly defend their decision. Another thing is that they will use it as political cover indicating that their demigod could never engage in or be involved with “x”, after all, a state office complex was re-dedicated in his honor by honorable people.
Of course we would be negligent if we didn’t mention that all of these so-called honorable people were elevated or appointed by Ron George so what comes around goes around. Ron George continues to have vast influence over California’s judicial branch as one of the men behind the curtain operating the malleable muppets that sit in the Judicial Council star chamber. Many of his appointees are tainted themselves which lends to their malleability.
This is a placeholder to outline the Team George players that continue to run the Judicial Council and the AOC. This post will be edited by reader input. If you can identify the “Team George” players and their respective past and current roles, we’ll post them up for all to see. While we maintain our own list, we’re going to rely on reader response to populate this list initially.

“The New State Court System pawns” Pawns are people that aspire to something greater and will do anything necessary to brown nose their way to the top. They’re the people that do the dirty deeds cheap on behalf of those who control the old state court system. They promote centralization and/or death star politics.
