Skip to comments.Judicial Watch takes its eye off the ball
Posted on 09/20/2012 9:29:19 AM PDT by inkling
Judicial Watch, the Washington, D.C.-based group that describes itself as a conservative watchdog, has taken on all types of government corruption and waste.
Among them is the scandalous practice of union release-time, in which government employees are given paid time to perform union work, including lobbying and campaigning. Judicial Watch condemned Miami-Dade County, Florida Mayor Carlos Alvarez for allowing public transit workers to be excused from their regular duties while still collecting taxpayer salaries. Among Judicial Watchs bill of particulars against the mayor was the 1,300 union police officers who make over $100,000 at the department Alvarez worked in and headed for years. Outrageous, said Judicial Watch.
So imagine our shock when Judicial Watch announced it would try to intervene in the Goldwater Institutes challenge to release time in Phoenixto defend the practice that diverts six full-time police officers and thousands of hours of police time for union business, including lobbying and campaigning.
Why the sudden shift in principle?

what has judical watch ever dont but pander
My thoughts, exactly!
if ANYONE has any contacts ... it would be nice if they would, as part of their election integrity project, REQUIRE everyone that wishes to be on ANY ballot for ANY American office provide citizenship documentation. such documentation should be readily available for public review.
similarly, for the office of the president, they should REQUIRE ALL candidates submit eligibility documentation... which would also be available for public review. citizenship, birth records, and residency history (to prove the 14 years in country requirement)
i have made calls to numerous states, NONE of them have ANY documentation submitted to them proving citizenship of the candidates for any office.
it’s a fallacy to claim integrity of the election if none of the candidates are provably eligible to assume office
well, i just got off the phone with a woman at judicial watch.
basically, she said JW isn’t a political organization and wouldn’t get involved.
which struck me as hypocrisy. they claim to be about election integrity... and supposedly fight to keep illegals and the dead from voting... but won’t check to insure those same illegals are running for office.
she also believed i was targeting 0bama. although true, he is one of the total number of candidates that are not provably eligible to assume office
If you get a Judicial Watch mailing, money begging letter, toss it in the recycle bin along with yesterday’s newspapers. JW raises money for itself and does little else.

At the final reality, a lawyer will follow the money.
