… Go Get ‘ Em Carl [DeMaio] !! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,June 2nd,2014

.. Carl DeMaio is one tough customer .

.. He is a candidate for US Congress from California ‘ s 52nd Congressional District . He will stand for election on Tuesday in the state ‘ s ” jungle ” primary , where all comers stand for election . Only the top two vote – getters move on to the general election on November 5th …

.. He made the news again this week . Unfortunately , it was of the not-so-good kind . His campaign headquarters in San Diego was vandalized and totally trashed by parties unknown . Given the tactics of the current campaign , people suspect the campaign of his opponent , demoCrap Representative Rob Peters or gay rights interest groups in the Greater San Diego area . How foolish would that be , especially just before the election …

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview]..
.. [link] to the article…

.. DeMaio is a Republican , is openly gay . He is very heavily expected to advance to the general election without much trouble . He has had more grief from gay – rights groups on the left than from the DemoCraps or from his own party .

.. Tuesday will be an interesting night . There will be primary elections in California and 8 other states . It will mark the halfway point in the 2014 primary election season . In this race , the important thing will be , first , who gets through [likely deMaio and Peters] . Second , is what vote totals that they get . So , why is the vote important ..

.. between the dirty tricks by the gay – rights crowd and the antics by now – jailed ” filthy ” Bob Filner , both scandals are having an effect on San Diego politics . Now , the question is how much in the congressional race , which , ironically , is for ” Filthy ‘ s ” old congressional seat , more or less . The better a candidate does in the primary , the better that they are positioned for the general election …

.. it would especially be important for deMaio to finish first , or a close second . If he finished a strong first , then he becomes a favourite in the general election ..

… Yea , Ace of Spades , It is How I Read it [Filner] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,July 30th,2013

.. Right now , folks , short of his resignation , the only way to get San Diego Mayor ( and former demoCrap Congresscritter ) Bob Filner is to recall him from office . The only problem : an ally of Filner ‘ s , Stampp Corbin , has taken out the petitions , and has posted the legal notice in the news media . You may wonder , what that means ?

.. Simple . No one else can take out petitions to recall Filner . Unless a judge (who may be a Filner crony) overturns the monkeyshines , the legal clock will run out (for now) on a recall effort .

.. It seems that the City of San Diego has rules for the recall of officeholders that are more stringent that those that are spelled out the the State constitution. The number of signatures is greater , the time perioud is lesser , and then there is the set – off perioud . Once an effort has failed , then six months must elapse before another can be mounted .

.. and an ally of Filner ‘ s is controlleing the recall petitions …

SAN DIEGO — LGBT Weekly publisher Stampp Corbin is being accused of filing a fraudulent recall notice in an effort to keep in office San Diego’s embattled Mayor Bob Filner, who faces multiple allegations of sexual harassment.
Corbin, who has a history of support and close involvement with Filner, surprised the San Diego political world on Thursday, July 25, when he was the first to initiate a recall notice against Filner via a classified ad in the UT San Diego.
According to the UT San Diego:
Publishing a notice starts a 60-day clock for the recall process, though the actual signature-gathering begins three weeks later. From there, 101,597 signatures must gathered within 39 days, with a 30-day extension allowed if needed.
Two days earlier, Corbin had published an opinion piece attacking the credibility of one of Filner’s accusers – his former fiancée Bronwyn Ingram. Some observers questioned Corbin’s motives, considering that Filner had appointed Corbin to a city commission.
By triggering the recall process on July 25, and without much fanfare, Corbin appears to be taking time away from organizers to mount a proper campaign. And it calls into question whether another recall effort led by land-use consultant Michael Pallamary, who has given Filner until today, July 29, to resign or face a recall petition, can now go forward.
In his classified ad, Corbin failed to outline in detail the case against Filner, other than “Accusations of sexual harassment by city worker against Mayor Filner.” To date, six other women outside of city government have come forward and accused Filner of sexual harassment.
Further complicating matters, Corbin has announced that he will not mount a funded campaign with paid campaign staff to collect signatures, and instead will simply make a copy of the petition available to anyone who stops by his office at LGBT Weekly.
Observers say the biggest risk is that Corbin could walk into the City Clerk’s Office any day with a few signatures, and get the petition rejected automatically. Such a rejection by the City would guarantee six extra months in office for Filner, as city rules prohibit filing of recall petitions against a city official if a petition has failed within the past six months.
Evidence against Corbin was circumstantial and speculative until a witness with insider information stepped forward to reveal his true motive, published in Sunday’s UT San Diego.
Susan Jester, head of the Log Cabin Republicans of San Diego County and a longtime political activist, said she had spoken to Corbin several times last week about the recall matter and is convinced that he is playing “Chicago-style politics.”
“He bragged to me that it would be a way to stop the group getting ready to file” their own recall drive, Jester told the UT San Diego. “He said, ‘It occurred to me that it would derail the other group.’”
Corbin denied the accusation when questioned by UT San Diego on Saturday night, but Jester wasn’t buying his explanation. She recalled Corbin telling her this:
“He was expressing a tactic in his mind, how to derail the Filner recall process,” Jester told the newspaper. “I thought at first he was half-joking. But I saw it on his Facebook page. It really infuriates me. We have a right as citizens to file a genuine recall. We have a mayor grossly out of control and ruining our city.”
In a separate piece published on CalWatchdog.com, blogger Chris Reed labels Corbin as a “gay-baiting gay activist” for his efforts to play the gay card against Filner’s opponent in the 2012 election – Carl DeMaio. Reed also labels Corbin’s recall effort as a stunt to thwart a successful recall.
If Corbin is trying to keep Filner in office, he would be doing so in the face of overwhelming opposition to Filner within the LGBT community. On Friday, The San Diego LGBT Community Center’s board of directors went on record demanding Filner’s resignation and the San Diego Democrats for Equality issued the same demand on Thursday, along with the San Diego Democratic Party and the national Democratic Party.
As a matter of full disclosure, SDGLN Publisher Johnathan Hale has a personal relationship with Carl DeMaio.
LEC here , again — You bet that it is a scam . The city charter ‘ s rules are tigher than the state ‘ s for a reason , to make recall efforts a pain in the [bleep] . Also , the scam effort and the legal notice wre meant to screw any other effort to try to take out Filner . I doubt any other one can be mounted , for now , unless the state courts intervene and slapp down Corbin for his fraud .
