Run, Orly Run: web site has problems

I was looking for polling results on the California Attorney General race—didn’t find any. Commentary I read says that Democratic incumbent Kamala D. Harris is a shoe in–no idea who will be #2. California has a “top-two” primary system, where all the candidates run together, and the top two, regardless of party, move on. In California it’s not unusual to have two Democrats facing each other in the general election.

Anyway, I came to the Ballotpedia web site entry for the 2014 California AG contest, which links to Orly Taitz’ campaign web site. Her site is a WordPress blog with a nice header graphic featuring the Golden Gate Bridge, and Orly’s smiling face. The articles have a named author, in this case Chito Papa, a Florida “computer guy” that testified for her in the Farrar case in Atlanta.

Benign neglect

Whoever is running the site isn’t all that concerned about its appearance, evidenced by this leftover on the front page:

Also on the Orly Gear page, there is a month-old inquiry from a KFBK  staffer asking for an Orly Taitz’ photo for their candidates page at KFBK.com. There is no reply on Orly’s web site, and the KFBK page now has that really goofy Washington Post photo by Jonathan Alcorn.

No one expects…

The Orly Taitz Super PAC put up a message a few weeks back that they had moved to a new and faster server. It seemed to have worked as I got about 3 second response on that home page. They have a new short article up complaining about the Los Angeles Times ignoring Taitz.

Battle of the bumper stickers

The official Orly Gear page has a bunch of different bumper stickers that you can order from MakeStickers.com. The Orly Taitz Super PAC is also offering bumper stickers from the same company, only just a single design. Both competing web sites are charging the same $4.95 for a standard-sized sticker, so neither is making any money off them. Orly says that a t=shirt is coming soon, but they better hurry because the race is likely to be over in 11 days.

Independent reporting

I came across an independent progressive web site covering the California AG race, that had some comical things to say about Taitz.
