O'Donnell CORRECT: Biden Donor filed FEC Complaint against CHristine O'Donnell
The FREEDOMIST ^ | January 5, 2011 | Paul Collier

Breaking Exclusive: Crew Director uses own Father to levy FEC charges against Christine O’Donnell- Tea Party News

Leonard S Togman, Father of Crew Director, Melanie Sloan, files FEC charges to help daughter attack O'Donnelll

O’Donnell attacker, Melanie Sloan, uses her own father to file trumped up charges with FEC

The Freedomist has been investigating the charges levied against Tea Party champion Christine O’Donnell by the partisan group, CREW (Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington- which targets conservative leaders), led by Attorney Melanie Sloan. In the course of that investigation, The Freedomist has learned that the group, CREW, filed a charge on behalf of a Leonard S Togman. (see the official charges here from a PDF posted on the crew site: http://www.citizensforethics.org/node/45695

FEDERAL ELECTION COMMISSION In the matter of: Christine O’Donnell …

File Format: PDF/Adobe Acrobat – Quick View Complainant Leonard S. Togman is a citizen of the United States, a registered voter, and a resident of the State of Delaware. As a registered voter, …

While Mr Togman may be a Delaware voter, what has been omitted from Melanie Sloan’s statements on this case, from the official complaint filed by the FEC, and the official statements made by CREW, is that Leonard Togman is Melanie Sloan’s father. Not only is Leonard Togman the father of Melanie Sloan, like Melanie Sloan herself, he also happens to be a heavy Biden supporter. He is also a strong supporter of the man many people believe Christine O’Donnell will challenge in 2012, Thomas Carper.

This story is about much more than Tea Party challenger Christine O’Donnell, this is about the tactics being used by progressives to assault our Tea Party and Conservative Leaders over and over again with personal assaults, using accusations, false charges, and a myriad of Alinksy-like tactics to undermine the person, since they cannot stand in front of the American people and tell them to vote for their kind of candidate, ones who are beholden to big government, big unions, and political class elitism. This is why we call on our Freedomist readers to help us get this story out about Melanie Sloan and her Father, political class elitists using our own government to attempt to destroy any Freedom-loving leader that dares stand in the way of their big government agenda. How can you help” You can link this site onto your own site. You can tweet this story out. But more importantly, you can do this:

contact the Chairman of the House Committee that oversees the FEC to ask them exactly why they have not dismissed this obvious partisan assault by the father of one of Christine O’Donnell’s political enemies, Melanie Sloan.

Go to his official House website here: http://lungren.house.gov/index.html

Call him at these numbers and tell Dan Lungren to ask the FEC why they are allowing this trumped up charge to go forward, and why they are not investigating Melanie Sloan for filing false charges:

(916) 859-9906: District Office

(202) 225-5716: Washington Office

Here is more information about this emerging controversy now surrounding the accuser herself, Melanie Sloan:

1) Melanie Sloan’s father is Leonard S. Togman, a retired attorney from Potter Anderson & Corroon LLP.[3]

2) CREW’s Complaint against Christine O’Donnell is based upon — LEONARD S. TOGMAN (her father) — for “standing” of a Delaware voter.

3) Leonard S. Togman’s campaign donations are almost exclusively donations to JOE BIDEN and Thmoas Carper.

The Complaint against Christine O’Donnell is officially, formally brought on behalf of a Delaware voter LEONARD S. TOGMAN.

This same Leonard S. Togman has made 16 donations to Biden in the last decade, totaling $9,975, and 8 donations to Democratic Senator Tom Carper, whom everyone expects Christine O’Donnell to run against for the US Senate in 2012, totaling $4,500

67.7% of all of the Togman’s political donations have been to JOE BIDEN

30.5% of all of the Togman’s political donations have been to TOM CARPER, possible future opponent for Christine O’Donnell in 2012.

Melanie Sloan is using her father, a Biden-Carp supporter, as she is, as the COMPLAINTANT in the FEC Complaint.

Here is the link to the pdf file that lists Leonard S. Togman as the official complainant in the charges trumped up by his daughter, Melanie Sloan:

Well I doubt that an O’Donnell donor would file and FEC Complaint against Christine O’Donnell. It would have to be a Democrat. I bet it was someone who did not like Governor Blagorivich who pressed changes against him. Why would she believe that someone other than a political foe would press charges or claims against them. Funny she does not understand that concept. Now instead of deciding who did the filing. Why not work on your case so you can win in court. I tell you if I was being sued I would worry about my case and not who was involved.

It still could be shady. Can we please see the checks she personally wrote to the campaign on her rent first before saying she is a wounded bird. If this was me, I would have already put them on the internet for all to see.

Fortunately we are able to go back to those threads, identify the Freepers who showed up in lock step with CREW, and see if they can be tossed.

We certainly cannot be involved in election fraud, which is what this seems to be.

It's so Obama to go to the mat on things like who got what donation, or who made which expense, or who did or didn't sign a petition required by law.

That's how he got to run almost all of his elections WITHOUT OPPOSITION.

Now, we see this Lennie running down the field doing an Obamaesque attack on behalf of Carper or some other Democrat puke in Delaware.

That tells you who is really in charge of this.

Wonder if Lennie and his slimeball daughter would like to appear before a House committee real quick? Let's get 'em up there on TV and make'em drool!

It's not a court. This is a method used by the Obamistas to run for office ~ outside the normal bounds. There's nepotism involved in this complaint to the FEC.

NOTE, as I've said before, the FEC is a fascist institution that must be eliminated. As long as it exists none of us are free people.

No you wouldn't. You haven't published your checks Ms. Sloan paid you for sexual services ~ for example ~ have you?

And don't tell us you didn't get such checks!

We know.

And I’m sure Sarah was shady as well, since she had 21 ethic complaints against her? Usually when an opposition files complaints against someone and leak to the AP that they are filing an complaint tells you everything you need to know

No one is saying that Christine is running again, or when or where if she does.

I think that Virginia Democrats were terrified (they were in fact) when Christine spoke to the Northern Virginia Tea Party on Dec. 7 because they thought she might move to Virginia and clean their clocks in a Republican-leaning State.

The point is that the Democrats *BELIEVE* Christine will run against Carper in 2012.

So you have a big Carper donor officially filing the FEC complaint against a likely Carper opponent in 2012, with the assistance of his daughter, the head of CREW.

Why is it that a retired lawyer who donates to ONLY Biden (67%) and Carper (30%) is bringing this FEC complaint against the probable (from their perspective) GOP opponent to Carper in 2012?

No, absolutely not.

The task now in the O'Donnell team is exploring how to sue Melanie Sloan and own her house, bring criminal charges against Sloan and Togman for filing false charges, and/or get Melanie Sloan disbarred.

And those 21 frivolous ethics charges led by the Obozo disciples were the reason Sarah stepped down as Gov. Her personal legal costs had exceeded $500k and, considering here salary was $100k, it was typical Alinsky tactic to destroy your opponent via bankruptcy.

The bigger point is not to allow this bogus group CREW off the hook for being anything except a liberal attack machine which only targets conservative republicans. Melanie Sloan is a former staffer for the most hate-filled partisan in the Senate, CHUCK SCHUMER. CREW takes direction from liberal democrats. Everytime CREW is mentioned it needs to be tagged as a liberal special interest group.

The thrust of the story is that the leader of the very left wing CREW used her own father, who bears a different last name, without revealing the relationship.

Did you catch the name of the organization? CREW? It stands for Committee for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington. Wouldn’t you think, if they are playing ‘ethics watchdog,’ that they had an obligation to be ‘transparent’ in their use of their leader’s dad to file the FEC complaint?

In law, there’s a requirement called “clean hands” that parties must have before filing claims if their claims are to be taken seriously. CREW does not have ‘clean hands.’

The problem with this charge political tactic is. This made a headline on the 10 pm FOX, CNBC, CNN,CBS, ABC newscasts and that’s all. That bulletin was intended to drip slime about the targeted individual into little sheeple heads relying on these sources.

When they (partcularly FOX & CO) should have reported it as a “There is an unproven political charge” bla bla bla initially.

Now O’Donnell’s people have to go back to these and other sources including talk radio.

There is a raft of pseudo conservative talking heads whom I call “herdists” (particularly those soft on “social issues”) who (particularly RINO’s sometimes gleefully)repeat what the Ministry of Statest Misinformation (MSM) reports.

What O’Donnell’s people have to do now is nail those “herdists” talk show hosts, by name, and demand they question it.

It’s the continuing pattern of victim mentality and ad hominem defense. Gender discrimination, they’re hiding in the bushes, Joe Biden is sending the FBI, it’s all a Mike Castle plot, etc....rather than addressing the facts.

The facts are that COD used campaign funds to pay part of the her rent. That is the fact that Castle-libs and progressive propagandists are disingenuously focusing upon. They are not focusing on the fact that she was using her residence as a campaign HQ, and that it was perfectly lega, and that it was chump change because that is what she had back then.

They also ignore facts that are actually significant and that involve serious money when it comes to their liberal friends. For example, they ignored the fact that Mike Castle received massive amounts from companies that he bailed out with TARP money. This was also legal but much more egregious than anything Christine did.

Why not work on your case so you can win in court.

Because when the charges are thrown in the trash, it will be buried on page 59. Of course, she is working to show the accusations are crap. But in the meantime, they are trying to slander her in the process.

She did not owe any rent. When her attorney boyfriend -- who works at an investment company -- bought her house for $135,000 (she owed only $90,000 on the house), he made an investment for the future.

Christine did not owe any rent. She was not paying him rent.

It is the continuing pattern of false smears, which the Left has been using ever since Barry Goldwater, Ronald Reagan, Clarence Thomas, Caspar Weinberger, Oliver North, Jessie Helms, and on and on and on and on. Same old song.

The Left keeps swinging and missing. This is one more failed attempt to try to stand up as tall as Christine O'Donnell. Christine's critics are not intellectually tall enough to take her on. They keep trying... and they keep failing.

Correct me if I am wrong. I thought that, at the time, Christine was using her residence as her campaign HQ & was using campaign funds to pay a portion of the rent. This is acceptable because the residence was also serving as her office. Am I wrong about this?
