Negligent OC Registrar Will Run November Election, Citizens Angry (Video News Blogs 10-12 min)


Orange County, CA. Watch angry citizen campaign leaders describe what the Voter Registrar Neal Kelly did wrong to two separate campaigns. Now, according to widespread news reports http://301url.com/4vc the Los Angeles Times article stated "The report found that Kelley allowed school district officials to view signature petitions in violation of state law — an error Kelley previously admitted — and erred when he told district officials that signature verification and a special recall election would cost the district hundreds of thousands of dollars". So now he has been found negligent in his handling of the CUSD Recall petition campaign in a report commissioned by the Board of Supervisors and is bracing for an unprecedented and growing onslaught of criticism, as he has been entrusted to run the November elections. Read the full report here.

In two short Full Disclosure Video News Blogs, citizens document the many complaints against the Registrar cited during the campaign.
  • First view this 12 minute FREE video on the CUSD Recall irregularities at the URL:http://www.fulldisclosure.net/VideoBlogs/VideoBlogs24.php
  • Second view this ten-minute video news blog, the Full Disclosure Network™ of interviews with a cavalcade of angry citizens who say the OC Registrar has provided them with faulty voter registration data, undermining their confidence in the ability of the County to conduct accurate or fair elections. The FREE video news blog is available for viewing at the URL: http://www.fulldisclosure.net/flash/VideoBlogs/VideoBlog27.php “On Demand” 24/7 as a public service of the Full Disclosure Network™.

CITIZENS WORRY OVER CORRUPTED DATA BASE

Appearing in the video are representatives from the ”Newporters for Responsible Government“ (NRG) Spokesman John Buttolph, Campaign Organizer Tom Billings, and Initiative Coordinator Liz Vitale. The NRG group describes a corrupted voter registration database that was provided to them by the Voter Registrar’s Office that caused confusion and delay on their signature gathering. The group is attempting to qualify an initiative in the City of Newport Beach that would mandate voter approval on COPs (Certificate of Participation Bonds) to finance public projects. NRG expressed concerns in two letters to the Registrar, requesting fairness be exercised when validating their petitions and signatures.

CUSD RECALL CAMPAIGN AGREES

Also in the video, corruption of the voter database was substantiated by leaders of the CUSD Recall Campaign; Tom Russell, Spokesman and Jennifer Beall, campaign organizer, who describe in the video the similar problems they encountered with the Orange County Registrar’s office. In December of 2005, the Registrar invalidated a high percentage of voter signatures declaring the petitions did not qualify to recall all seven CUSD Trustees.

OC REGISTRAR/COUNTY COUNSEL REFUSE TO COMMENT

When contacted for a statement and explanation Acting OC Registrar Neal Kelly refused to be interviewed, nor would he provide an official statement acknowledging the problems. Kelly referred the news media to the County Counsel’s office for a response and ordered his employees not to talk to the media. Senior Deputy County Counsel Ann Fletcher did provide a written statement to the Full Disclosure Network™ …“the Registrar will not prepare the requested statement” and cited the Public Records Act as the authority.

    BACA vs ARPAIO, SHERIFFS DEBATE WHO’S GOT TOUGHER JAILS? : Watch Video News Blog (7 min)

    Los Angeles, CA. Arizona’s Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and L. A. County Sheriff Leroy Baca take each other to task over how they must deal with operating their respective jail systems in a seven minute Full Disclosure Network™ video news blog. The video is available FREE, 24/7, on demand at the as a public service and viewers are encouraged to leave their comments and join the discussion.

    Sheriff Joe Arpaio is often referred to as "the Toughest Sheriff in America” because he houses jail inmates in Korean war tents on the desert in temperatures that reach up to 140 degrees in the summer time. In this video he boasts about spending only 30 cents a day, per inmate, for meals saying he hopes they will never come back to jail once released. He challenges Sheriff Baca’s early release program by inviting him to send the overflow of inmates from L. A. to Maricopa County where he proudly displays a vacancy sign and promotes the austere accomodations for the 10,000 plus inmates in his jails.

    Sheriff Baca points out that criminals in Los Angeles county jails are tougher and more violent and make Sheriff Joe’s jails look like a “summer camp”. Baca points out that in L.A. County jails there are 1,200 murderers waiting for trial and 4,000 gang members who commit 500 murders a year. Baca also says that Sheriff Joe’s criminals are mild compared to those in L. A., that they have committed lesser offenses and are not the hard core criminals such as in Los Angeles County jails.

    This short video news blog demonstrates the striking contrast in policies and attitude in Arizona and California. The Sheriffs offer their own rationalization for circumstances in their jails. At the close of the video news blog viewers are asked to participate in a survey on which policies are best.
