Aroostook Watchmen – Emergency Meeting With Governor Paul LePage

Jack and Phil discuss the extraordinary meeting with Governor LePage.  To listen, click here.  (sound comes in at approx. 12 minutes into the broadcast)

Remonstrance For Maine Government, click here.

There is some concern that, should Governor LePage pursue the Remonstance, he might be “set up.” Should that happen it will expose “who” set him up and the people will back up Governor LePage.

Discussion is had on the wild goose chase by the Attorney General’s office and that Governor LePage will look into that. It’s hopeful that he will. However, at the beginning of his tenure, the Governor was apprised of the “less than poor” job performance of his constitutional officers, specifically William Schneider, A.G. and Charlie Summers, Secretary of State. Unfortunately, former Attorney General Janet Mills and former Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap have returned to their former positions…and nothing will change. Nothing was done about A.G. William Schneider, nor Secretary of State Charlie Summers and replacing them with “formers” will not yield a different result.

Additionally, unconstitutional bills go beyond the 2nd amendment.

Constitutional violations continue due to the uninformed, uneducated legislators which is in total conflict with their sworn oaths of office.

Whenever a constitutional violation is perpetrated against one of the people, they have a right to redress in the court.  However, much research has been done regarding our judicial system. (view this post – comments)

Whether one has an issue of foreclosure, thefts involving property, children, animals, etc. , you ultimately end up in court. Judges are paid state employees. If you file a complaint against a judge it goes before the Committee on Judicial Responsibility and Disability. See members on this committee. Is this not a conflict of interest…a serious issue that Governor LePage can resolve…remove judges/attorneys judging judges.  These members are personal appointments by the governor.

[new post] COMMISSION TO STUDY THE CONDUCT OF ELECTIONS IN MAINE TO HOLD PUBLIC HEARINGS

This past May, Secretary of State Charles E. Summers, Jr. appointed a Commission to Study the Conduct of Elections in Maine, in accordance with Resolve, Chapter 133 (enacted by the 125th Maine State Legislature). He tasked the Commission with conducting a study of voter participation, the system governing voter registration and the conduct of elections in our State; the intent being that their findings, as well as any recommended legislation, would be reported to the Joint Standing Committee on Veterans and Legal Affairs of the 126th Legislature. The group will be holding public hearings throughout the state in order to better understand how Mainers view the State’s voting process and what their concerns are, as well as what they feel may need to be changed or modified.

Public Hearing Schedule – Commission to Study the Conduct of Elections in Maine.
Let’s take a look at how Secretary Summers makes “correct decisions” and the disgraceful, unlawful, job performance of Deputy Secretary of State Julie Flynn, in concert with them Attorney General’s Office.

Letter to Secretary of State Summers, August 2011

Reply from Secretary of State, November 7, 2011.

FOIA Request to Secretary of State Summers, November 14, 2011.

FOIA reply from Secretary Summers, December 1, 2011.

Secretary Summers did not find that there is significant evidence to support an investigation into the City of Biddeford’s election fraud of 2004. Deputy Secretary of State, Julie Flynn, “thoroughly” examined the incident with the Attorney General’s Office. Secretary Summers was confident Deputy Secretary of State, Julie Flynn, arrived at the proper outcome. To the best of his knowledge, his “office does not possess any documentation of Ms. Flynn’s review of the matter in question as the process was based on oral communication. Please understand that I am not denying your request for documents; it is just that what you have requested does not exist.”

An “oral communication” does non constitute an investigation! Had a full and fair investigation been conducted Ms. Flynn, and Asst. A.G. Leanne Robbins, would have viewed the Post Office’s role in this state’s scam against decent, honest people who run for office.Campaign flyers and postage paid with clean election money were returned after the “post office forgot to mail them.” They were returned as “undeliverable.” This is a lie! Calls were made to many of the people who did not receive this mailing and did receive mail as addressed.

Campaign flyers – U.S. Post Office failed to mail. This is YOUR taxpayer money! Where is the outrage?

Where is transparency in government and accountability where it’s concerned? Are we to trust that Summers will make the “correct decisions” in the upcoming election? There is not even a justification for his run for U.S. Senate. Secretary Summers has some explaining to do!

Where does the buck stop?

BDN reports ” Don’t seek solutions to nonexistent problems. The commission is conducting its work in an environment where Republicans continue to push for election reform in response to — largely unsubstantiated — claims of voter fraud, while Democrats vehemently argue against such measures as attempts to suppress voting blocs that traditionally support them. In June 2011, Gov. Paul LePage signed LD 1376, An Act To Preserve the Integrity of the Voter Registration and Election Process, which banned same-day voter registration. In July 2011, Maine Republican Party Chairman Charlie Webster produced a list of 206 names of college students who he said should be investigated for voter fraud. About two months later, Summers announced the findings of that investigation. Although he found no evidence of fraud, Summers said his probe revealed that Maine’s elections system was “fragile and vulnerable” to errors.”

If this commission is to study the conduct of elections in Maine, it must not only include “voter” issues, but issues involving honest, decent candidates running for office.  So much for mainstream media’s “Don’t seek solutions to nonexistent problems” which do exist and they refuse to publish!

With the U.S. Postal Service in the pockets of politicians, mainstream media owned by spouses of politicians……do you get it yet?

VOTER FRAUD BREWING IN MAINE?………STAY TUNED!

Portland Press Herald reports: Secretary of State Investigates possible voter fraud.

 
Maine Secretary of State Charlie Summers announced he his pursuing a two-pronged investigation into potential voter fraud, stemming from allegations made by an employee within his department and leaders of the Maine Republican Party.

Former Secretary of State Matt Dunlap, a Democrat contemplating running for the U.S. Senate, denied any impropriety while he held the office from 2005 to 2010.

States Dunlap ” Summers was “treading on very dangerous ground” by appearing to politicize his position as secretary of state. Everybody knew I had a ‘D’ on my sleeve and everybody knows he has an ‘R’ on his. It’s how you act, it’s how you behave,” he said. “The fact that I knew the Republicans were watching me like a hungry hawk hovering over a fat mouse added to, I believe, the integrity of my work.”

“Absent any evidence,” observed Dunlap, “there’s no other answer but that it’s political.” It could also be “political” but absent evidence?

MAINE JUDGE G. ARTHUR BRENNAN TO RETIRE

PPH reports “Justice G. Arthur Brennan to retire, will be ‘sorely missed’“.

“After three decades as a judge, Superior Court Justice G. Arthur Brennan will retire this summer. Brennan, who is based in York County, will retire Aug. 26, leaving a vacancy on the Superior Court bench.”

“He’s really going to be sorely missed,” said Barry Hobbins, a lawyer in Saco who is Maine’s Senate minority leader. “He’s a very special person. Hobbins praised Brennan for his fairness and his ability to bring together the four components of the criminal justice system – retribution, restraint, deterrence and rehabilitation – in his decision-making.”

“Walter Smith, another Saco-based lawyer, said it’s wonderful to appear before Brennan, whom he described as “a real gentleman. He’s a wonderful human being,” Smith said. “He really cares and really tries to be fair to both sides.”

“Before becoming a judge, Brennan was an assistant attorney general and York County’s district attorney. He was nominated to the District Court bench in 1981 and elevated to the Superior Court in 1984 by Gov. Joseph Brennan.”

Hearings on the re-appointment of other judges took approximately 20 minutes and Judge Brennan was before the Committee for over 2 hours!  State aides were rounded up at the last minute to testify on behalf of Judge Brennan.  Despite all of the evidence against Judge Brennan the Judiciary Committee unanimously voted to re-appoint Arthur Brennan. (Video of the hearing is available.) Who was the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee?  None other than Sen. Barry Hobbins!
I requested the Commission of Judge Arthur Brennan.  He failed to respond and the Secretary of State cannot produce the Commission of this judge, or any other judge.

Who is Atty. Walter Smith?  Partner in the law firm of Smith Elliott & Garmey, attorneys for Saco Biddeford Savings Institute and City of Biddeford.

 Judicial Selection Committee Members Announced Today by Governor LePage.

Joshua Tardy will serve as the committee’s chair.

In February 2004 I was a candidate in a special election held in Biddeford, Maine during the administrative of (now former) Governor John Baldacci (D). My contact with Jonathan Wayne, Director of the Ethics Commission.

I contacted (now former) Rep. Joshua Tardy regarding the fraudulent election in Biddeford, Maine. I informed him of the tampering of ballots and tampering of first class mailings with the post office. I asked for his help with the fraudulent confiscation of my properties.  He stated, quote “this has been hashed over.” When I asked why I wasn’t included in the “hashing over” of this issue, he  declined to speak with me and hung up on me.  Now Governor LePage nominates him to the Judicial Selection Committee?

Additionally, Judge Robert Crowley stepping down at the top of his game.

What game?

Does anyone else see a problem here?

Are these issues not a matter of “public interest?”

ARE MAINE ELECTIONS POLITICALLY CONTROLLED?

PPH OPINION: “Secretary of State Summers disingenuous on voting laws.” The author is “disappointed in the Maine Legislature and particularly in Secretary of State Charles Summers for the recent modifications they have made to Maine’s voting laws.” He goes on to say “It is disingenuous of Mr. Summers to make these assertions, while in the background we have to listen to Maine Republican Party Chairman Charlie Webster gloating that these new rules will “keep liberals and socialists from stealing elections” and “as such, it is reprehensible, and Secretary Summers and our representatives in the Legislature should be ashamed of themselves for participating in this charade.”

PPH OPINION by Ben Grant, the chairman of the Maine Democratic Party. “
“If you want to get really honest, this is about how the Democrats have managed to steal elections from Maine people,” Mr. Webster said in an interview with Portland Press Herald columnist Bill Nemitz. “Many of us believe that the Democrats intentionally steal elections.”

Before any further discussion of the issue, I think it is critical that the people of Maine hear my response: This is unequivocally false.

So, my central message is this: Whether you are a Democrat, Republican or unenrolled, it is not the government’s ballot box to give and take like some kind of reward.

That’s not how freedom works. It’s your ballot box, and your Election Day. In our civic religion, there is nothing more sacred.

The LePage Republicans may think that Election Day registrants are just lazy, or they may think that making it a little harder to vote is an acceptable response to Charlie Webster’s fact-free mythology.

The Maine Democratic Party thinks otherwise. We believe in policy that advances the great causes facing Maine. We believe in a vigorous public square, where the issues are raised and debated by citizens and legislators alike.

We believe in a responsive, respectful citizen’s government that works for the people it represents.

In the past 30 years, there have been only two convictions of voter fraud in Maine. What’s more, when pressed, Mr. Webster could not provide evidence to support his accusation.”

NOW, my comment and I can provide evidence to support voter fraud in Maine and the refusal of those in authority to act, per their oaths, duties and obligations is reason why there are slim convictions in Maine.

In February 2004 I was a candidate in a special election held in Biddeford, Maine during the administrative of (now former) Governor John Baldacci (D).

 I want to note that the relationship between my opponent and I is amicable.

Letter to Julie Flynn, Deputy Secretary of State.  During the tenure of (now former Secretary of State) Matthew Dunlap (D).

Letter to Leanne Robinson, Asst. A.G. (I also hand delivered one to her)

 
In October 2005 when a Journal Tribune newspaper article “Ethics commission investigates anti-Beaudette postcard” was published I contacted a State Representative. I explained that Dan Rogers had “helped out” with my campaign in Biddeford, 2004 special election. I was not contacted to testify, but would welcome the opportunity to do so before the commission. I had evidence that pointed to him as the creator of the “postcard.”

At first, I thought my opponent may have had something to do with the post card because of his inaction of a closed door executive session involving my mother’s home. He stated that it is illegal to give out quit claim deeds in executive session. (He was not a city councilor at that time, but was later a sitting city councilor on the Coordinating Committee which I went before over this issue.) I took the advice of the State Rep. and immediately contacted the Director of the Ethics Comm., Jonathan Wayne. I told him of my concerns and evidence I had involving Dan Rogers. I also told him about my formal complaint, filed February 9, 2004, to Julie Flynn, Deputy Secretary of State and Atty. Gen. Stephen Rowe, Leanne Robinson (I later learned her last name is Robbins) demanding a full investigation into the fraudulent election held in Biddeford in February 2004, ballot tampering and mail tampering and that no action had been taken on my complaint. I offered to testify at the Commission hearing on November 9, 2005 and that I would welcome that opportunity. Not only did the commission need to hear evidence on Dan Rogers, but also needed to hear of the violations of Maine election laws which occurred in this special election. I was scheduled to testify at the November 9, 2005 hearing.

November 4, 2005, I received a phone call from Mr. Jonathan Wayne, Director of the Ethics Commission regarding the upcoming hearing on November 9, 2005. As he danced around his explanation of the commission’s upcoming hearing, he was trying to politely tell me that I would not be testifying, although he wanted me at the hearing in case “Dan Rogers lied.” Then I would be called to testify. I felt like I was being used by the commission to achieve their goal – to nail Dan Rogers. (Rogers did confess to mailing the “post card.”) From my conversation with Jonathan Wayne, I gathered that Atty. Phyllis Gardner (an Asst. A.G. who represents state agencies and works in the A.G.’s office) was advising the commission against my testimony. I explained to Mr. Wayne that my intention was to testify at the hearing and that it’s the duty of the commission to hear my testimony. He stated that there would be lots of media there whom I could speak with. I told him I intended to do so, but I also intended on testifying. He stated that he knew that I had issues with Clairma Matherne, Biddeford City Clerk, but that this hearing was not about that. This hearing involved Dan Rogers who helped out with my campaign in a Biddeford election in which Mrs. Matherne was of great importance. Rogers’ statements to me regarding Matherne (telling her he was a Democrat and she was all excited, etc. and I thought he was a Green Party member, being adamant about my not going to the polling place at 8:00 p.m. to inspect the absentee ballots received during the day) was also relevant to Dan Roger’s integrity and character. Mr. Wayne asked if we could meet with just him in the afternoon about this matter. I feel like this is another “Biddeford behind closed doors again.” Mr. Wayne did not permit my testimony. Mr. Wayne protected corrupt Biddeford officials, hindered an investigation, and obstructed justice with the help of Atty. Phyllis Gardner who protected her “clients” the Secretary of State’s Office, her boss, A.G. Stephen Rowe and Asst. A.G. Leanne Robbins who maliciously prosecuted volunteers who worked on my campaign.

To note, former A.G. Andrew Ketterer sat on this commission. I video taped the hearing and Ketterer is a must see!

NOTHING WAS DONE ABOUT THE BALLOT AND MAIL TAMPERING BY ANYONE IN AUTHORITY WITHIN MAINE STATE GOVERNMENT!

Unless, and until, there is accountability and oversight of state agencies, including constitutional officers, what can we expect from Augusta!

And where was the “concerned” media?

Mainers Heading For The Polls…….Will the Fraud Continue, Secretary Dunlap?

Have you been a “target” for shining the light on corruption? If you are connecting the dots on this blog, you will see just how far officials will go to silence good people.

See letter to Julie Flynn, Deputy Secretary of State.

See letter to Asst. A.G. Leanne Robinson.

No response to the letters and no action taken by these officials on these state and federal violations!

To be continued…….
