Taitz’s missing documents

Orly Taitz

Candidate Taitz

According to the Palm Springs newspaper The Desert Sun, birther attorney Orly Taitz is yet to make any campaign finance filings in her race for California Secretary of State. Obama Conspiracy Theories has confirmed this through the California Secretary of State web site. Taitz has filed neither the March nor the May report.

Taitz’s opponent in the Republican primary, Damon Dunn, reported that he had raised $220,646.79 through May22 compared to $70,214.92 for unopposed Democrat Debra Bowen for the same period.

The Desert Sun reports:

If Taitz manages to pull out a surprise victory in June, she likely will challenge Bowen’s opposition to requiring photo IDs at the polls.“I think it’s important to make sure people who are voting or who are candidates are citizens and residents of the states where they are voting,” said Taitz, 49, a native of the former Soviet Union and a naturalized U.S. citizen.

Update:

There is an exception to the filing requirement for candidates who did not receive $1,000 or spend $500 on their campaign. The specific requirements and deadlines for the primary election are on the Secretary of State’s web site. There are penalties for late filing. If Orly Taitz has complied with the law, then we can infer these numbers or less. If this is the case, Orly’s financial backing is dwarfed by that received by her rival for the Republican ballot position. The other 4 independent candidates have not filed financial statements either.

Update 2:

Taitz filed a late report on paper June first in which she listed $1,350 in loan.

    From the CA SoS website it looks like she is in good company. Of the 7 people declared for SoS only 2 have filed. Are there any penalties for not filing? She’s probably also ashamed to publicly show her paltry support. I wonder if when it finally does show up we will see a line item of a little over $20K to a recipient in Georgia. That would be hilarious if she tried to write that off.

    honestly, i personally don’t think that is orly’s direct motivation. which is one of the reasons why i’m curious to see her campaign income. i think she actually buys into what she is selling….. to a degree.

    i would really like to see if orly is being fueled by incoming funds of fans or if it takes funds of orly to fuel the fans.

    “State candidates and state recipient committees must file electronically with the Secretary of State if, since January 1, 2000, they receive contributions or make expenditures totaling $50,000 or more.”

    Otherwise, the filing deadline was May 27, 2010, to be delivered personally or by guaranteed overnight delivery.

    Now, if Orly used UPS, a late delivery is Standard Operating Procedure.

    I am waiting for the breakdown, divorce, and complete flame out. And don’t bother calling me an anti-semite. I detest that crowd, and I’ve seen plenty of them – I know what I’m talking about.

    They are uniformly miserable people who spend their days licking their wounds, instead of looking to the future. She is trying to incite a lone wolf, like that junkie and alcoholic Glen Beck.

    The way that crowd kicks Arabs around is going to be the downfall of Israel. Mark my words: Orly and her crowd are turning Israel into an authoritarian apartheid state, and when Obama, Emmanuel, and Axelrod try to stop it, they get the worst invective shouted at them.

    My beloved Orlana is missing more than just documents. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen a few loose screws, and a molar or two, in her wake.

    That said, if the $50K mark for REQUIRED electronic filing is true (and I have no reason to think it is not) why does she not just post her copies of the original, manually submitted, paper filings on her STD raddled blog and her FB pages?

    I mean…she DID keep copies of everything filed, right? Copies of the signed originals? That’s what I did when I ran for local office like 10+ years ago, and I’m 90% sure my records are still sitting in a box in a cupboard somewhere in my dinky little garage. Given the size of the Taitz motor pool, I’m sure there’s a cubby somewhere for the records of her less than $50K in donations.

    Orly, my sweet little spider-eyed paprika-pot…what are you hiding from us?

    You may be right. Barry Soetoro could be ineligible, but since he did not and is not running for President, there is no real issue. I suppose if Barry Soetoro runs for President in 2012, President Obama could challenge his eligibility, if Soetoro was not eligible.

    On her blog. Actually, I believe it was a post from her numero uno supporter Pammy Barnett asking her supporters to click that pay pal button and send them money because advertising had recently cost them $22,000. And I’m wondering if that money was spent on the ad she put in the paper about Obama using multiple SSN’s.

    I agree with richCares. Let’s see how well Orly does in the primary a week from tomorrow. I’d be willing to put my money on Dunn. It amazes me to find people like Orly and yourself that have no idea how people can change party affiliation. It’s also amusing to see Orly all tied up in knots over Dunn’s prior affiliation with the Democrat party. Orly has no chance of winning the primary nor is Pamela Barnett going to be successful in having Dunn and Bowen removed from the ballot. Even if they were both removed, Orly wouldn’t have any chance of winning. There are enough sane voters left in California that would vote for any alternative versus Orly.

    The article isn’t quite accurate. I went to my local election office, and there are two filings for Taitz in the file.

    One his her Form 410, which is used to designate a committee.

    The other his her first Form 460, which is used to disclose contributions and expenses. The one on file covered the first three months of 2010. (It was due at the end of March, but wasn’t filed until May.) That Form 460 listed about $250 in contributions (none over $100), and approximately $2500 in expenses. Taitz paid her filing fee (of about $2250), and “Defend Our Freedom” paid another $250 or so for an unnamed filing fee.

    This, of course, raises questions about why Taitz’s foundation is paying for things, whether her foundation is really tax-exempt, were people conned into donating to her foundation thinking it was tax-exempt, etc.

    Reality Check May 31, 2010 at 3:54 pm #

    Thanks bob. According to the regulations Taitz should be fined $10/day for the late filing of her form 460. That means she should be fined at least $300. She can request a waiver for the late filing penalty based on incapacity, accident, or death. I think she has a great shot if she pleads mental incapacity.

If you mean that I am fearful that she will have success in her political bid, or her lawsuits, you are mistaken.

And the on-line database shows that DOFF has not completed the proper filings.

    .
    Dave, DOFF is listed at the California Attorney General site as “NOT REGISTERED” for tax-exempt charitable status. And yes, Orly plastered on one of her sites “Defend Our Freedoms NonProfit Federal ID#26-4328440”. March 5, 2010 This was posted on Orly’s site: “Note: Donations to the Defend our Freedoms Foundation ARE STILL Tax Deductible- Donations to her Political Campaign are not. If you need the writeoff- donate to the Foundation. If you don’t need (or can’t use) the deductions… donate to the Campaign.”
    .

    Who controls what goes on Orly’s site? Certainly no direct question about the tax-exempt status of DOFF has ever been permitted there. I have tried and others have tried to post the question there many times.
    .

    I spoke to Orly on a radio show in November and asked the straight question. She would not not answer.
    .

    She spends energy freaking out and fighting over what Wiki says about her, but has never bothered to correct Conservapedia’s entry: “Defend Our Freedoms Foundation is non-profit organization…” that has been there for more than a year.
    .

    You said, “DOFF has not completed the proper filings”. That is pretty evident. DOFF entity was created 16 months ago in January of 2009 and in nearly a year and a half has not submitted proper filings to receive California Tax Exempt status. It is not a registered corporation. It is just Orly.
    .

    It seems clear that Orly tries to mislead people into thinking that DOFF is a non-profit tax exempt organization. It is not, and never has been.

    Dr. C, the IRS Publication #78 that you are speaking of is notoriously always out of date. The best way is to call IRS and confirm. I have done that periodically for over a year. DOFF is not a 501(c)(3). She would be yelling it from the rooftops if it were. Just mentioning that Pub. #78 is not to rely on as being current.

    Dave May 31, 2010 at 11:41 pm #

    Let me make a few comments here.

    1. The quote ellie gives is still on Taitz’s website here (only click if your computer is properly inoculated against viruses). So I have been educated, the claim that contributions to DOFF are tax deductible has appeared on Taitz’s website.

    2. “exempt” means the corporation doesn’t pay federal income tax, not that contributions are tax-deductible (yes, I misuse this phrase also). Pub 78 is a list of organization that receive tax-deductible contributions — not a list of exempt corporations. And DOFF is indeed not there.

    3. “non-profit” is a concept of state law, not federal. And my reading of the CA database is that DOFF is at least properly registered as a non-profit, though as I mentioned it is not properly registered for soliciting donations.

    4. Much of this was already hashed over on this blog here.

    If Orly gets a fine for not filing on time it will be Obama’s fault.

    If they attempt to audit any of her paypal donations, (and good luck to any poor soul having to sort that calamity out) it will just be Obot thugs trying to harass and intimidate her.

    Of course when she loses next week that will be because of treasonous Obots too, and she will sue the pants off everyone that didn’t vote for her for “Aiding and Abetting”!

    An ex parte hearing in Barnett v. Dunn is scheduled to be held tomorrow. Based upon the evidence which is going to be produced, I expect the judge to make short work of the lawsuit:

    1. A certification of party affiliation which shows that Dunn registered in California as a Republican on 3/17/09.

    2. A letter from California’s Election Fraud Investigation Unit which states that they were advised by the Duval County Supervisor of Elections that Dunn registered as a Democrat there in 1999, but he never voted so his registration was cancelled in 2005.

    Taitz’s latest campaign filing. She “loaned” herself around $40k.

    As for Barnett’s filing, there’s no point in asking why she filed what she did. Obviously Barnett (and Taitz) figured out that nothing’s going to happen with this little case until the election moots it, so this is an attempt to get the court to do something. Why is it ex parte? Does she expect the court to summarily rule in her favor tomorrow? Who knows.

    The real question is where will this run out of gas: superior court, court of appeal, California’s supreme court, or SCOTUS?

    Yes, you don’t like Dunn. We get it. I don’t like Dunn either, so we agree on something. Taitz’s allegations about Dunn are ludicrous, but that point is not worth arguing about because Dunn is certainly not going to be the next SoS.

    Since you’re a big fan of Taitz, perhaps you could make yourself useful and explain what the judge wants to discuss at tomorrow’s hearing.

    Thanks for posting that. It is from a LexisNexis report (I recognize the format) and it is a perfect example of why information from LexisNexis must be independently verified.

    Jacksonville is in Duval County. You can go to the website of the Duval County Supervisor of Elections and verify someone’s voter registration status.

    Type is Damon Dunn and his date of birth (his DOB is on the LexisNexis report) and here is what you get:

    So apparently there’s a hearing scheduled in Barnett v. Dunn for 2:15 pm PDT today. Taitz’s blog has described it as an ex-parte hearing. That confused me, since I thought that meant a hearing with only one side present — but I think what’s actually going on is a hearing to discuss an ex-parte application for injunctive relief. Don’t know what injunctive relief Barnett is seeking, but I guess we’ll find out.

    “Who do you like for Governor and Senator in California?”

    Completely immaterial to this blog but-

    I was prepared to be open minded about Governor. Though I tend to vote Democrat, and in general like Jerry Brown, I was curious about Meg Whitman, not so much about Steve Poisner. After what 9 months of Meg Whitman ads, I am just tired of her, and feel like she is trying to buy the governship. Both she and Poisner are trying to out Conservative each other and are playing the immigration card. Final straw for me with Whitman was her recent campaign add about how if she is elected governor that she would ‘crack down’ on sanctuary cities.

    Now personally, I think San Francisco’s sanctuary law is stupid, but at the same time, the statement is not only pandering but pandering while attacking my city. So I am looking forward to Meg being another politician who has failed to buy an office with their personal fortune in California. (anyone remember Ariana Huffington’s former husband’s attempt?)

    Senator? That easy- Barbara Boxer is fine. I like Tom Campbell, and if I didn’t like Boxer, I would vote for him, but Carly Fiorino is running on jobs creation for California even though she eliminated thousands of HP jobs in California.

    So ends my political analysis.

    Still have my fingers crossed that Orly will manage to get Dunn removed from the race- can’t wait for her stumping the state with Meg Whitman.

    She’s asking to court to order that any votes for Dunn not be counted, and she also is asking the court to order that notices be placed at all polling places that Dunn is not eligible. Basically, Orly knows that she can’t win the primary, so she is using Barnett to help her to win by default.

    Living in Denial: Why sensible people reject the truth

    See also

    How to be a denialist

    Martin McKee, an epidemiologist at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine who also studies denial, has identified six tactics that all denialist movements use. “I’m not suggesting there is a manual somewhere, but one can see these elements, to varying degrees, in many settings,” he says (The European Journal of Public Health, vol 19, p 2).

    * 1. Allege that there’s a conspiracy. Claim that scientific consensus has arisen through collusion rather than the accumulation of evidence.
    * 2. Use fake experts to support your story. “Denial always starts with a cadre of pseudo-experts with some credentials that create a facade of credibility,” says Seth Kalichman of the University of Connecticut.
    * 3. Cherry-pick the evidence: trumpet whatever appears to support your case and ignore or rubbish the rest. Carry on trotting out supportive evidence even after it has been discredited.
    * 4. Create impossible standards for your opponents. Claim that the existing evidence is not good enough and demand more. If your opponent comes up with evidence you have demanded, move the goalposts.
    * 5. Use logical fallacies. Hitler opposed smoking, so anti-smoking measures are Nazi. Deliberately misrepresent the scientific consensus and then knock down your straw man.
    * 6. Manufacture doubt. Falsely portray scientists as so divided that basing policy on their advice would be premature. Insist “both sides” must be heard and cry censorship when “dissenting” arguments or experts are rejected.

    Dick W, Orly, & Barnett have neatly overlooked the little thing at the top of the printout: “Dates: Nov 30, 2001 – Dec 3, 2001”. I doubt anyone would challenge that Dunn’s FL voter registration said he was an “Active Democrat” in 2001. But that was almost 9 years ago, folks. Can’t you produce anything relevant? Especially when the FL voter reg folks have said he was inactive in 2005.

    “Active” means he can vote, “Democrat” means that is his his party affiliation. It doesn’t say that he was active in Dem Party affairs. If he didn’t live in FL in 2001 then that is the fault of the voter reg folks not keeping the records current. If he didn’t live in FL in 2001 is there any proof he voted in FL in 2001?

    I’m so glad that the author mentioned obams’s birth announcements in the HI newspapers. Click on this link to read the most complete piece of research done on this topic to date. I promise you that this piece has information not posted anywhere else before. This has only been posted for the past few days, and I’m telling you, anyone who is seriously interested in the topic of the “proof” we have been fed regarding obama’s birth in HI should read this:
    http://myveryownpointofview.wordpress.com/2010/05/28/extra-extra-announcing-obamas-birth

    It seems like that site decided to do some “Sven” type research on the HI libraries where the Obama announcements were found….Pat at Badfiction has a good wrap up regarding this issue…

    http://badfiction.typepad.com/badfiction/2010/06/dispatches-from-birtherstan-for-3-june-2010.html#more

    “”At the University Library in Honolulu the staff delivers the film and also replaces it. You are not under any observation while handling the film. No library card needed.

    At the State Library in Honolulu you collect the film and return the film yourself. Other than some rude staff members making snide comments about my friend, and presumably to him, as he was able to hear said comments (having the leisure time to do so may be one reason that HI has the Library staff on furlough days) he was unsupervised while making copies. Copies at that library require inserting COINS into the viewer copy machine. No Library card needed.

    At the Library of Congress you must pass through security upon entering the Library. You must obtain a Library card. You must fill out a request form and the films are delivered to a table which you indicate on the form. You return the films to a special area yourself. You are unsupervised while making copies. You must have any purse or bag/backpack glanced into upon leaving at he main entrance, otherwise you do not go through “security” again.

    My friend felt it would be a very simple matter to make a switch of films in either HI Library. I can confirm the same would be the case even with the Library of Congress in spite of the “security” checks.”

    Amazing. Now the implication is that the microfiche was tampered with by “Obama thugs” and the announcements were planted. Which is funny since the Nordykes announcements were found in the newspaper the following Sunday. And wouldn’t it be simple enough for the birthers to find the other people listed around Obama’s listing and see if they had babies around the same time? But I guess that would actually involve work and the proof my hurt the so called birther chances….
