Just 48 hours after posting his talk to the right-wing Freedom Center on the internet, embattled Republican Assemblymember David Hadley had it removed.

His speech, entitled “How Conservatives Can Win in California” touted his strategy of bringing more conservative Republicans into moderate districts and derided Democrats as “multiculturists” in front of an organization known for its toxic anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim policies.

Hadley, the lone Republican legislator in a Democratic majority district, was elected by 0.5% of the vote in the lowest turnout election in history in a campaign funded by more than $1.2 million dollars from a single Republican billionaire and thousands more from big oil companies.

“David Hadley wants to hide his true colors from the voters of this moderate district,” said Mike Shimpock, advisor to Deputy Attorney General Al Muratsuchi, Hadley’s opponent. “He knows that when they find out his true conservative, extreme positions on the issues they care about he will be soundly rejected. Hadley refuses to denounce Donald Trump’s hateful rhetoric and violence-fueled campaign, and then tries to conceal his own remarks to a similarly extreme and racist organization, David Horowitz’s Freedom Center. Voters can’t trust David Hadley – he’s hiding his true beliefs.”
