Elections not auctions

It’s time to require donor registration, or eliminate the Federal Elections Commission

Candidates are turning in data that hides donors names. The FEC isn’t doing anything about it. All donations are self reported– and candidates can’t even spell their donors names right sometimes reporting the same person, multiple times with multiple spellings. This is no way to provide critical information to the public.

One of the things you should know about running against Mike Turner- he’s vindictive. I was told multiple times, I’d love to donate to you, I can’t stand Turner but…

I’ve been suing the FBI and the DOJ to release tapes that were played to the Grand Jury that would show that Nan Whaley “is dirty” (exact words of a juror). I’ve even tried to use the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to request information concering a dead guy- as a participant in the “Culture of Corruption” investigation.

The response from the Feds and the Courts (after 3 years) is that a “GloMar” response is appropriate, to “protect their privacy. They cite FOIA exmptions (b)(6), (b)(7)(C), 5 U.S.C. §§ 552 9b)(6) and (b)(7)(C).

The fact that the FBI knew that Dayton City Commissioner Joey D. Williams had committed a felony in office, and was allowed to become a “CHS” (Confidential Human Source) and stand for re-election shows that our elections aren’t sacred– that the Federal Government is willing to look the other way at crimes by politicians- including the bogus reporting of donations from “ActBlue” as both Amy Cox and Sherrod Brown have done.

I believe my donors are entitled to privacy. Therefore, if the FEC want’s to see the records, I demand that the FOIA exception of privacy of public officials involved in corruption be ended. Glomar was for National Security- not to cover the asses of our elected criminal element.
