"We've done nothing wrong, so they can look innto it if they want...I have nothing to hide."I believe him that he has nothing to hide, because I think that candidates choose not to know when illegal activity is going on. He does have James Brady on his financial disclosure. Candidates look the other way when their sleazy campaign managers engineer absentee ballot collection, knowing full well what is going on. Lynda Bell won on absentee ballots. No surprise there, same campaign manager, Jose Luis Castillo. BTW

Lynda Bell was sweating bullets when Eugene Flinn's campaign went to the elections office to examine absentee ballots. I went along, that is where I found an UNSIGNED ballot counted and obvious signs of a wife signing for a husband or visa versa (same signature). It is all a joke. We weren't allowed to touch the envelopes with the signature so it makes it cost prohibitive for most candidates to look at them. I would have liked to have looked for another couple of hours at least. One problem, they won't let you look at the computer to compare signatures on the envelopes to the voter's signature. That ties your hands in uncovering fraud. The election department must make phone calls randomly to absentee ballot voters to see if they got "help" or someone collected their ballot. I will volunteer to do it for free.
I believe that the boletero activity of Deisy Cabrera and Sergio Robaina should not just get them in trouble only, there should be repercussions for the candidates as well.
The whole system of absentee ballots sucks. Campaigns should not be allowed to get notices when the ballots arrive and they should not get lists of absentee ballot voters.
