Last week, we reported that former Anaheim Councilwoman Lorri Galloway, who is running for mayor in 2018, published a #MeToo Facebook post in which she alleged that Orange Juice Blog publisher and editor Vern Nelson sexually assaulted her five years ago.
Nelson made this comment the next day on a post published by one of his OJ Blog writers:
Nelson’s contention is the former councilmember invented her allegation of sexual assault out of whole clothe in retaliation for his mildly critical description of her mayoral candidacy in a recent blog post. Nelson was arrested last year for Driving Under the Influence, and this offense is being prosecuted as a felony. If convicted, it will be his 5th DUI conviction. He is currently in rehab.
