End of quarter! Please give to Burner & Goldmark today!

Tomorrow is the end of the fundraising quarter and Darcy Burner is still $30,000 short of her goal. What with the huge amounts of cash President Bush has already pumped into Dave Reichert’s campaign, Burner’s ability to raise money becomes more important than ever, and big donors will be watching closely to see if she continues to build momentum.

No longer able to promote himself by abusing his congressional franking privileges, Reichert is no doubt preparing to hit the airwaves with his first round of advertising. How well Burner will be able to weather the inevitable attacks partially depends on how much she can spend in response.

So if you haven’t already given to Burner, or you plan to give more, now would be a great time to open your wallet. Please contribute directly via Burner’s website, or through my Act Blue page.

And if you do go to my Act Blue page you will notice that I have added a second candidate, 5th Congressional District Democratic challenger Peter Goldmark. I’m pretty damn stingy with my call to actions, but Goldmark is the real deal, and with a big enough Democratic wave he really does stand a chance of winning if he can afford to get his name, face and message out in front of voters.

So please give generously to Burner and Goldmark. And give now.

    Burner has ummm…”flamed out” and Reichert was endorsed by the 6,900 member Washington State Council of Firefighters and the WA State Council of Police & Sheriffs. As first-responders, they realize Reichert is the “real deal” and Burner is just a dillettante.

    “for getting the 10,000 lawyer figure, then you’re calling me a dipshit for calling you on it? Where did I say that Kerry had 10,000 lawyers just in Ohio? I said “He had 10,000 lawyers”.”

    You said:

    “Also please explain how Kerry and his 10,000 lawyers got hookwinked if you accept the conclusions of the recent Rolling Stone article about the 2004 election?”

    Because Kerry did not have 10,000 lawyers, you dope. Yes, there was a network of lawyers acting as Democratic observers across the nation, but it is disingenious to imply that somehow Kerry had a team of 10,000 lawyers working on the 0hio case (i.e. trying to uncover the Ohio debacle ).

    Sorry J425,

    So claiming that felons vote for Gregoire, or any other Democrat, was proven to be a lie.

    This is Historically incorrect. I do believe that Joseph P. Kennedy spent a ton of money in Chicago (especially Cook County).

    And another ton in the Virginia’s.

    There are many more. But let me be fair, both sides do it. It just that the Democrats made an Art out of it ( remember Boss Tweed?)

    Vote Your Conscience Not your Emotions. (Just because they put up two candidates doesn’t mean that you have to vote for one of them).

    Well, Goldy, certainly Burner can win, but you and her need to read (and follow) Joel Connelly’s advice:

    “If Burner is to stand a chance of upsetting freshman Republican Rep. Dave Reichert, however, Capitol Hill and Belltown need to be officially designated as Darcy-free zones.

    The voters she’s courting live elsewhere, and are more than a bit different in their worldview….

    As an act of self-reassurance, local right-wing blog sites last week went on a Darcy-can’t-win bender. They’re off base. So, too, are the Burner backers who claim to have the hottest challenger in the country. The 8th District was not found on The Washington Post’s most recent list of 20 House seats most likely to change hands in November.”

    The Republicans chose the county and the judge where the challenge to the 2004 election was conducted. The judge was a Republican. Among the claims brought by the Republicans was that felons were illegally allowed to vote. It turned out that not that many convicted felons who hadn’t had their rights restored had actually voted, and for those for which it could be determined, most of them voted for Rossi, the Republican candidate.

    The allegation that most felons who vote illegally vote for Democrats is a proven lie.

But I may be misreading it. In any event, you’ve got to keep in mind that this is not a statement of policy. Again, Gen. Casey keeps in mind a number of scenarios. You’re talking about scenarios here … And so I would caution very strongly against everybody thinking, well, they’re going to pull two brigades out. Maybe they will, maybe they won’t. That really does depend upon a whole series of things that we cannot, at this juncture, predict. But Gen. Casey — again, I would characterize this more in terms of scenario building, and we’ll see how it proceeds.”

    To John 425:

    Just to be sure I had it right, I looked it up. Couldn’t find the actual decision quickly, but I found the news articles which reported it. The judge found 1,678 illegal votes (statewide) among the 2.8 million votes cast, an error rate of about a half of a percent. Again, let me emphasis – this was STATEWIDE, not just King County. It seems that all the counties had about the same percentage of their vote totals coming from an illegal vote, including the Republican counties.

    Only five illegal voters were identified and who had testified under oath about who they voted for: Four of those voted for Rossi, and one voted for Bennett. None voted for Gregoire.

    What about the others illegal votes? The Republicans failed to produce ANY evidence of felons who voted for Gregoire. Considering the effort that went into this challenge, I doubt that was because they couldn’t find at least some of them, or because they couldn’t get at least a few of them to talk. The only reason they wouldn’t have introduced this evidence is if the results went against them. Instead, the Republicans tried to have the judge use “proportional analysis” to have the judge ASSUME that most illegal votes would have gone to Gregoire. Judge Bridges rejected this approach as an appeal to “judicial activisim”.

    So, there you have it. Despite a considerable amount of money, time, and effort, the only evidence of illegal votes which could be tracked to a specific candidate waw four votes for Rossi, and none for Gregoire.

    So claiming that felons vote for Gregoire, or any other Democrat, was proven to be a lie.

    Former Alabama Gov Convicted on Bribery Charges
    By Paul Kiel – June 29, 2006, 5:39 PM
    It’s a bad year for former governors. First George Ryan (R) gets convicted in Illinois, and now Alabama’s onetime guv Don Siegelman (D) is heading for the pokey.

    From the AP:

    Former Gov. Don Siegelman and former Health South CEO Richard Scrushy were convicted Thursday in a bribery scheme that derailed Siegelman’s campaign to retake his former office.
    Siegelman, 60, was accused of trading government favors for campaign donations when he was governor from 1999 to 2003 and lieutenant governor from 1995 to 1999.

    Scrushy was accused of arranging $500,000 in donations to Siegelman’s campaign for a state lottery in exchange for a seat on a state hospital regulatory board….

    Prosecutors claimed Siegelman and his chief of staff, Paul Hamrick, received gifts, including a Honda motorcycle for the governor that he allegedly tried to conceal from investigators. Hamrick reportedly received $25,000 for a new luxury BMW automobile.

    Gee thanks, Kyle! I try. Now let’s see if I can rehabilitate LeftTurn’s reputation. LT’s premise is that Siegelman is part of the GOP Culture of Corruption. Siegelman is a Democrat in name only. Siegelman is a Yellow Dog Democrat from a state that votes Republican. For example, in 2004, Bush got 67% of the vote in Alabama, GOP Sen. Richard Shelby got 68%, and Republicans won most of Alabama’s House seats (racking up between 62% and 75% of the votes). So who elected this crook Siegelman? REPUBLICAN voters, that’s who! There sure as hell aren’t enough Democrats in Alabama to elect him. So, one has to ask — as LeftTurn did — what were those REPUBLICAN voters thinking when they elected this crook as their governor?

    So, you see, LeftTurn was right after all. It’s all in how you interpret things.

    Hoodwinked? We weren’t hoodwinked. We knew what happened, but couldn’t stop it. A number of lawsuits were filed by various groups in Ohio, but that’s not how you get a presidential election thrown out.

    There’s only one way to challenge a presidential election, and that’s in Congress. And when the “winning” candidate’s party controls Congress, you’re not going to get hearings, there won’t be investigations, the House won’t reject a state’s slate of electoral voters no matter how crooked the election was.

    The solution is to elect a Democratic House this fall. Then it will all come out. There will be subpoenaes, investigations, congressional hearings.

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    47

    Actually, 10,000 lawyers may be on the low side. Just in Washington, the Kerry-Edwards campaign fielded 700 lawyers on election day. About 550 of these were deployed to polling places, and the rest were stationed at call centers or stood by in court houses.

    All of these lawyers received training in federal and state election laws, and what problems to look for. Those stationed at polling places had cell phones and the call center phone numbers. This system made it possible to get an injunction within minutes if the observers saw voters’ rights being violated. The mere presence of these lawyers was a substantial deterrent.

    Ohio certainly was on the Democrats’ radar screen. In the weeks before the election, there was lots of discussion about going to Ohio, and those who could afford to go went, because it was widely expected within the Kerry campaign that there would be serious problems there. A couple people I talked to who were in Ohio on election day said the situation there was “unbelievable.”

    But the difficulty in Ohio was, first, the Democratic Party is weak and disorganized there. In many cases, there was no local organization to work with. Second, Ohio’s laws are much weaker than Washington’s in terms of protecting voter rights. For example, in Washington only election officials can challenge a voter at a polling place on election day, but Ohio’s laws allowed the Republicans to make mass challenges at polls. Even though essentially 100% of these challenges were bogus, it created lengthy delays at the sign-in tables, and this was a major reason for the long lines in Democratic precincts. Even where lawyer-observers were on hand and observed these tactics, there was little or nothing they could do to stop it, because Ohio law allows the Republicans to use this tactic.

It’s about the minority ruling the majority by interfering with the right to vote.

    RR@56 Never lose sight of the fact that their little tin-god, Ronnie Bonzo-Raygun announced for the presidency on the courthouse steps in Philadelphia, Mississippi.

    Kyle Broflovski,

    ““The Democratic National Committee will have 10,000 lawyers in battleground states Election Day, with six “SWAT squads” ready to deploy on orders from nominee John Kerry.””

    Sorry, dipshit, I guess I have to spell this out to you bit by bit. The Kennedy piece was about Ohio—one of many battleground states. So, what part of “battleground states on Election Day” don’t you understand?

    dj @ 64: Let’s review….

    me: “Also please explain how Kerry and his 10,000 lawyers…”

    you: “10,000 lawyers, eh? Oh, brother…the wingnut fucks don’t even pick their lies to sound plausable any more.”

    me: Article: “The Democratic National Committee will have 10,000 lawyers in battleground states Election Day”

    Also Roger: “Actually, 10,000 lawyers may be on the low side.”

    you: “The Kennedy piece was about Ohio…So, what part of “battleground states on Election Day” don’t you understand?”

    Huh? First, you call me a liar or naive for getting the 10,000 lawyer figure, then you’re calling me a dipshit for calling you on it? Where did I say that Kerry had 10,000 lawyers just in Ohio? I said “He had 10,000 lawyers”. The article points out other nationwide issues in the first two paragraphs. Who needs to have this spelled out exactly? Or do you want to argue with Roger, too?

    Puddy where are you on LeftTurd and drinking pee? That’s okay I’ll do it this time Puddy:

    “Just wanted to remind you righties that your LimpDick hero LimpDickLimbaugh is in REAL trouble again (per my sick little mind). In addition to peeing into a cup every day in front of a probation officer (I made this up because it is NOT in the Palm Beach Order), he now has to explain his illegal (?) transport of the weenie wagger drug (that is not on the illegal list). You all must be so very proud, because I, LeftTurd, will be drinking from the piss cup of my hero Rush Limbaugh!”

    See BS: Sorry went to the Everett Aquasox game last night. I like Comment #66. So true of LeftTurd. Again he was washed away by toilet water last night. Amazing how he continues to rise up out of the sewage!
