Tom Selleck has become a conservative icon as he has become increasingly outspoken throughout Obama’s presidency. Unfortunately, this means that the mainstream media is ready to slander his name any chance they get.
Now, they are attacking him once again as they report that Selleck is facing accusations of hydrant water for his 60-acre ranch in California. These accusations are very serious, of course, since the state of California is currently suffering a devastating drought.
According to Daily Mail, the Hollywood star and his wife Jillie Mack are accused of dispatching a truck to a nearby valley in order to retrieve gallons of water on at least twelve occasions since 2013. The Calleguas Municipal Water District reportedly spent $25,000 on a private investigator to catch Selleck in the act, and they have now filed a lawsuit against the actor.
The suit claims that the Sellecks continued to retrieve tankloads of water from Thousand Oaks even after a cease and desist notice was given to them. It also claims that a commercial water truck hired by Selleck made seven trips to a hydrant near a construction site between September 20 and October 3, 2013. Each time, the truck returned to, “the Hidden Valley area where the Selleck property is located.”
A cease and desist notice was delivered to each of the Selleck family’s homes on November 26, 2013, but the truck returned to the hydrant three weeks later to get water for the Sellecks. The truck reportedly also made trips to the hydrant and back on March 23, 24, 25, and 26 of that year.
The Calleguas Municipal Water District is asking for $21,685.55 to pay for their private investigator, as well as legal fees and an injunction. This news comes as California is struggling with a historic drought that has caused the state to ask residence to cut their water use by 25%.
While Selleck may be in the wrong here, this is yet another case of the liberal media attacking a Hollywood star for being conservative. If Selleck were a liberal, this story wouldn’t even be in the news, but since he’s conservative, it has gone viral today. The hypocrisy is disgusting.
The liberal media can slander Selleck as much as they want, but we don’t see him backing down on conservative issues anytime soon.
