According to the Palm Springs newspaper The Desert Sun, birther attorney Orly Taitz is yet to make any campaign 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.
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.
Taitz filed a late report on paper June first in which she listed $1,350 in loan.
