My name is already known on the net, so, I can say it here.

I am the guy who filed the complaint last week after out of state workers who told me they were working for Schiff were collecting signatures.

That is against Connecticut Law.

here is the actual complaint:

State Elections Enforcement Commission
20 Trinity Street
suite 101
Hartford, CT 06106

I, James Bancroft, do wish to file a formal complaint against the campaign of Peter Schiff, for United States Senate, for possible voter fraud through the use of illegal voter ballot signature circulators on the date of June 3, 2010, and possible other dates.

On June 3, at the front of the store “BEST BUY” in Newington at approximately 9:30 AM, located in the Sears Mall across from West Farms Mall, I was approached by a gentleman who asked if I would sign a petition to allow Peter Schiff to be placed on the ballot for office of United States Senator in the upcoming election.

I struck up a conversation with him and he openly told me he was from Montana and was not a Connecticut state resident.

I left the store and returned to that store at approximately 10:45 AM with a camera to photograph the man and also his partners. A woman and another man were seen asking for signatures at the same time, standing in front of the “TRADER JOES” store. The woman freely identified herself as being from Montana, employed by a voter registration service, “National Ballot Association”, NBA, and was paid for her services in collecting ballot signatures.

The gentleman with her identified himself as a Republican voter registered in the state of Connecticut, as a state resident.

The woman told me that signature collectors earn $2.25 per signature while the gentleman told me he earned $100 cash per day as a witness to the process.

Both informed me that their receipt of funds was not recordable to the state for income purposes. I informed them that I was unemployed and would have to tell the unemployment office of this income if I was to do the work as they asked me to do with them, and they informed me that I should lie to the unemployment office and deny I earned any money since all transactions were in cash.

Connecticut General Statue 9-404b, section d, clearly states that each circulator must be a state resident and registered in the party they are collecting for.

Statute 9-372 defines the office of Senator as applicable to this office as being relative to the complaint.

I believe the Peter Schiff campaign willingly and knowingly violated state election laws in hiring out of state workers to perform a task that is strictly limited to in state registered party voters.

Enclosed with this letter is a DVD of 3 photographs of these individuals.

The man with the dark shirt with blue highlights personally told me he is from Montana and the woman with the other gentleman told me she is from Montana, also.

James Bancroft

Why would you want to de-rail the candidacy of one of the sharpest economic minds we have on our side.

For Linda MacMahon?

It is a stupid law. I hope Peter Schiff succeeds in forcing a primary. He is running about as well as Linda and he is a much better candidate. At least he wasn’t running around funding liberal Democrats like Linda.

I am the guy who filed the complaint last week

Why? Well then, I suppose if you hadn't, somebody else would.

That's too bad. I don't embrace a couple of his positions but think he is dead on about the economy. So what's not to like about him? That he worked for Ron Paul?

Will that blow his chances out of the water? You want that rich lady?

Schiff is the chosen one for the Connecticut Tea Party

WHAT THE TEA PARTY IS NOT TELLING YOU ABOUT PETER SCHIFF

Peter Schiff at the 2008 libertarian Convention, saying that libertarians must insult GOP members to show they are not like them, and that Libertarians must INFILTRATE the GOP and run as GOP members in order to win

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ncLTFoTFa8&playnext_from=TL&videos=gKm7t4j9Wgc


Schiff is pro-gay marriage, pro-drug legalization and against the war in Afghanistan

Why do the Ron Paul guys support gay marriage?

http://www.schiffforsenate.com/index.php?q=news/constitutional-candidates-congress

Schiff’s own website endorses Adam Kokesh, the anti-war traitor who also tried to tell people he was a Republican, all after leading anti-war marches across the WORLD!


All the Schiff bots are supporting a PRO-CHOICE candidate, too

CT Politics are a delicate thing. I did some reading in the 5 minutes since my first post, and I see that he has switched parties from Libertarian to Republican. (Again, 5 minutes of research).

I am a friend of another in CT who switched parties to get the vote. From democrat to Republican. He’s a total rat. Criminal record, has to get rides to events because his licence was pulled. These aren’t the people we need in a republican party here.

RINO ? Economically, yes he’s good. I read a few of his articles (Such as the one linked to a FR thread at the same time as this thread). There are lots of financial experts around here, but our fight goes deeper.

We need a Reagan Republican.

Bwhahaha.

I want someone that is intelligent, understands economics, and knows what needs to be done to fix this mess that the great Zero in office right now has created.

Vinny Chase has no shot, hell I have no clue who he is.

Schiff is one of the leaders of the liberty movement, someone we badly need in office today.

You can keep supporting right wing big government. I’ll choose the candidate that is for liberty

James Bancroft, who said he was a founding member of the Hartford tea party group, claimed he was approached by a Schiff supporter outside a store in Newington last week and asked to sign a petition. Bancroft said he struck up a conversation with the worker, who said he was from Montana. Bancroft filed the complaint with the State Elections Enforcement Commission on Friday.
Thanks, RaceBannon.

Yet you have no problem with having the wife of a drug dealer win the Republican nomination and lose to another rat.

You’d rather starve in the streets when the dollar collapses

“The law is an ass” (which is, I believe, a quote by someone famous).

While someone who is NOT a Connecticut resident should incur civil penalties for signing a petition meant for “Connecticut” voters, and their signature should not count as valid, against a required number of valid signatures, the residences of the workers conducting the effort should not matter (they are usually paid workers, not merely “volunteers”) - just the residence of the petition signers.

If, on principles, Schiff is a good candidate, then the use of this technicality would seem to be not bright, if it is being used for no better reason than that the claimants favored someone else on the ballot.

How can anybody trust libertarians when their favorite
“son” loads up legislation that he knows will pass and
gives out the pork while giggling “I voted against it.”?

There are things outside of economics like culture for example some thing that Libertarians miss mostly.

Thanx for digging this all up. Shame on those who excuse breaking the law to win.

From someone knowledgeable on this

“All of the out-of-state petitioners had an in-state Republican witness with them as the law says. The campaign has spent thousands of dollars making sure there was a witness with each out-of-state and/or non-Republican petitioner. I worked for three days as a witness. These allegations are ridiculous and they don’t understand the laws here. If they understood the law, they would mention something about the witness instead of make assumptions. This is obviously a political move as you said and it won’t go anywhere.”

You must be Richard Blumenthal.

The *&^%*ng state of CT is bankrupt beyond belief and Schiff is the only one talking about it. How was your service in Nam - Blumie?

Hmmmm. Yes, I read about some of that stuff, looked up some of those people, that Kokesh is too much of a firebrand imo. I crossed a line and he's the only one on the abortion issue, don't like it but nothing's going to be done about it anyway.

OK, and his father is in prison, something about against taxes. Didn't know a little of the other but have watched just about every video he's got out there.

You have proof he lost his driver's license? And for what?

I just liked the guy, good speaker, his demeanor, seems like a decent guy, quick thinking, not going to enact legislation but trying to get some rolled back. We'll have to see what happens then.

Good job!

These Paulbots only stand for their own perverted form of liberty and stand side by side with the traitors of CodePink and the fascist gay rights movement, etc...

All the best as you move forward with this!

So lets work to have someone even more Godless, Linda MacMahon, who has funded many liberal causes, go up against someone who won’t even consider the conservative perspective in Bluementhal

This is the height of idiocy, trying to de-rail the candidacy of someone who has advocated rolling back government for years, before it was seen as cool by FR

Paulbots are notable for their interesting twist on being 'principled,' and that is turning their brain off when they enter the room.

Exactly.

The big government right wing statist RINOS are fearful of what will happen if true liberty minded people are elected.

RINOS and leftist marxist fear people such as Schiff, who actually vow to reduce the government from all angles

Kokesh is liberal scum who posted fake flyers to stop pro-war event at Goerge Washington University in 2006. In Germany he tried to get other soldiers to go AWOL.
He is a traitor and no conservative can support him.

The gentleman with her identified himself as a Republican voter registered in the state of Connecticut, as a state resident.

Connecticut General Statue 9-404b, section d, clearly states that each circulator must be a state resident and registered in the party they are collecting for.

I am not a lawyer, however it appears to me that (unless I have overlooked something) you have not provided enough facts in your allegation to establish that 9-404b paragraph d has been violated. It appears that the "gentleman with her" may indeed meet the legal requirement for being a "circulator". He must witness the signature on every petition page, and must take steps to verify that each signer is an elector, etc.

I do not see any prohibition against other people who do not meet the qualifications to be a "circulator" gathering registered voters to sign the petition, as long as the "circulator" is duly authorized and performs the necessary, prescribed functions attendant to obtaining the actual signature on the petition page. If, however, one of the folks coming from Montana ("going to raise me up a crop of dental floss," no doubt) were to perform the functions that are required by statute of the circulator, then that would seem to violate the law - but I'm not sure that you've made such an allegation.

So, IMHO, your allegation of illegality in this case may be unfounded.

As far as your allegations of possible tax code improprieties, that issue is not germane to the alleged violation of 9-404b, and it serves to distract from (and detract from) the issue that you are trying to push...

If you noticed, I live in NH and we are very small (L) libertarian and have a strong tradition of people organizing and confronting those who are privileged to hold office.

You Va statests go down and grovel to your masters to have your voice heard, come to one of our town meetings or a school committee meeting. You want to run for Rep, get 28 signatures, want to run as a deligate to a Party convention, go down and sign up, want to yell at your State Rep walk down the street.

Didn’t notice you are from NH. I love the attitude up there

Plenty of problems with statists in VA, believe me. You have loons in Northern VA who want the government to control your pay check, and loons in the rest of the state that wants the government to control everything else you do.

Moving to a place such as NH is something I have considered

stop right there

SCHIFF invests in America’s economic competitors ONLY
NOT A DIME in the USA
how is that smart??

ECON 101
When you invest in the firm that is the economic competitor to your own family, and your family does poorly, and their competitor does well, and you KEEP investing in your family’s competitor, YOU ARE PUTTING YOUR FAMILY OUT OF WORK!

Schiff doesn’t invest a SINGLE PENNY in AMERICA!!!

pro-immigration and said that there are too many jobs in the US we NEED to let in immigrants???

Peter Schiff admits on camera that he has ZERO money investigated in American corporations or industry. If Peter Schiff refuses to invest in American companies, how can Peter Schiff say he is helping Americans keep their jobs?

http://ameriborn.com/shifty/

This is SCHIFF in his own words!

PETER SCHIFF IS ACTIVELY INVESTING IN FOREIGN COMPETITOR NATIONS THAT ARE PUTTING AMERICANS OUT OF WORK!!!
