Roan Garcia, political activist or political bully?
So, what happened? We were not close enough to hear, but we saw Roan Garcia Quintana, a strange looking unshaven dude in business suit and grey ponytailed hair, talking with a huge, clean-shaven, earnest younger-looking man. Roan looked very angry, and then the young man turned and walked toward us. I could smell a story, so we asked him what had just happened. He said:
“Well, I saw Roan Garcia, so I walked over and introduced myself and shook his hand. I said, ‘Hello. My name is Rick Price.
I am Dr. Christina Jeffrey’s son.’ And, then I told him that I was deeply disappointed in some of the things he has written about my mother.
“Garcia-Quintana said, ‘Well, it’s ALL TRUE!’ in a smug and arrogant manner. Then, I told him that whether that’s true or your opinion it is irrelevant. You can’t say things like that. I don’t think you understand that state election rules and the laws at the Federal level as they pertain to a congressional election are different…
“And, as I spoke, I started gesturing with my hands, and he stepped back and planted his right foot, balled both of his fists, and yelled, ‘Don’t touch me or I’ll put you on the ground!’
“With that threat, I filed a police report with the Greenville Technical College Police. They questioned him and he confirmed my story and claimed to be a martial arts expert.”
The case was filed as report number: 1004-1779.
That’s his story. His mother, our friend (full disclosure) Christina Jeffrey, says she has no idea what made Roan turn against her like he has. She thought they were friends and fellow conservatives. She first met him when they both attended a dinner for Tom Tancredo. She could think of nothing she might have done to incur his hatred, but the fact that there is visceral hatred there, and that it spilled over onto her son, was evident.
Maybe he’s supporting another candidate? Or maybe, as he has told many people, his preference is opposition work and he’s being paid to work against a candidate… It certainly seems to be the case. But why Christina Jeffrey Is she that big a threat?
Stay tuned for updates…
