At first this was going to be another “look at what Tito is doing now” type commentary but Tito Ortiz has every right to do what he’s doing. As reported by the Orange County Register, Ortiz filed for unemployment benefits on February 22, 2021.
Ortiz has been getting disparaged for making his move but his business have been devastated by COVID-19 regulations in California. Particularly hard hit was his performance training center and retail store.
The argument by many was that Tito, who happens to be the current Mayor Pro Tem for Huntington Beach, shouldn’t be applying because he’s a government official. At first I was inclined to agree until I realized that his positions nets $81 every other week plus expenses. That’s a joke.
Look, I wanted to crap on Tito too but this isn’t him going nuts on some kind of idiotic conspiracy theory. The man deserves the right to get assistance.
