|The form to register the ECO says that by signing it, you certify the "organization is complete, true and correct." Here is what certify means: to say officially that something is true, correct, or genuine|
As much as we all might dislike the Bells, I am not sure they have not done anything wrong with their ECO.In my book, when I sign something it is true. If you state something in a legal form submitted to a government entity it had better be true. When they stated on the form that the ECO would be used for COUNTY races and then used it for the HOMESTEAD race it became a lie, they are diverting the money. The contributors have a right to know where the money is going. Wendy Lobos knows when she signs her name it should be true, she is an attorney. Why is lying on LEGAL forms okay to some of you? Wendy knows the money is being diverted. She allowed it to happen.
Opps, I have to offer a retraction. This is hereby retracted with caveats and so is my other post, I need the additional records dated prior to September 2nd:
Juan-Carlos “J.C.” Planas
I represent the ECO, “Good Government Now”, which was the subject of your post earlier today.
I was quite concerned because I specifically remember filing the paperwork with the City of Homestead notifying them that this ECO would be conducting electioneering in that City.
When I called the City Clerk today, I was informed that yes, they did receive our paperwork but because the forms were in a different format, they could not post them on the web. They had checked with the Miami-Dade Elections Department when they received it and Miami-Dade verified that all that was needed was for the ECO to file courtesy copies with Homestead to be in compliance. Whether or not the section of the Organizational Papers are physically amended to reflect each City is irrelevant as long as the papers are sent to the Homestead City Clerk. Accordingly, this ECO is in compliance with the law.
I strongly suggest you issue an immediate retraction to your blog post as it is grossly incorrect in both the facts and the law.
Me: Overkill to be sure.
J.C: Don't you also have a ECO operating in Homestead with a different Scope and Jurisdiction too? I guess this is done all the time? I see the Wayne Rosen (Mark Bell supporter) contributions and have heard about 7 fliers ANTI- Porter coming from this ECO.
