CAGOP CONVENTION | Alameda County delegate and former 15th Congressional District candidate Chris Pareja said his “butt puckered up” when he heard Karl Rove was invited to speak. “You wanna see a fight, go to his speech,” he told The Citizen Saturday morning in Sacramento. Pareja said he will be avoiding it too keep himself from getting “indigestion.” The big Karl Rove speech, and the potential fight, starts within the hour. Another Alameda County GOP member said he brought hand cuffs to “arrest” Karl Rove, but have yet to see him or his posse.
