Desperate Davis Hires Shredding Service: Gray Davis to Destroy Incriminating Documents
Foxnews ^ | 10-05-03 | Tony Snow

Posted on 10/05/2003 10:58:44 AM PDT by jmstein7

On Fox News Live (Breaking)...

Fox News reports that the Davis Administration has sought the services of document shredding companies. The implication is that he thinks that there is a good chance he will be kicked out of office, and this is a desperate attempt to destroy incriminating evidence.

Tony Snow and guest suggest that the GOP should seek a restraining order to prevent the destruction of potential material evidence...

How can Davis lose? He had Klintoon stumping for him several times? Won't the left coast lemmings listen to the Toon?

Yes, shredders are a big seller to the left.

Looks like a job for the Justice Dept.

Here's hoping a few disgruntled mucky-mucks start saving the hard copies.

Here's a clue, there aren't a few disgruntled employees. Virtually the whole town of Sacramento hates the man.

The problem with sqeezing Davis is that the paper trail also leads toward interests that include some of Arnold's supporters (I don't know if it is the same companies but the policies and the players reflect the same interests). With Bill Lockyer in office, don't expect any prosecutions. It'll be just like when Bush came into office after Bubba. "Let's move on."

Thread from yesterday

Plan B also has a strong pragmatic component. A state official with knowledge of the situation said the governor's office recently put in an order to the state archives for storage boxes, along with a list of approved vendors for shredding documents.

Better yet, some FReeper get a hold of AHnold's people and tell them to wake up a judge.

There's a reason this is happening on a Sunday (or at least it's when we heard of it).

I read about a process for reconstructing shredded documents. If you can get the bags before they're burned you scan all the pieces -- software reconstructs them.

Unfortunately, the shredder you showed looked like the one Saddam's boys used on PEOPLE! Headfirst, if you hadn't p*ssed them off too much, feetfirst, if you had.

Davis should be indicted for gross negligence and misallocation of the taxpayers' money. If he were the CEO of Enron and misappropriated funds as he has as governor he would have been brought to justice by now.

I recently read that one of his current acts is to buy back unwanted land from developers who have made major contributions to him without having appraisals done. The article stated that he was agreeing to purchase prices that far exceeded the lands estimated appraised values. Furthermore, he has ordered that the prices he agrees upon not be disclosed to the public.

Why does our justice system look the other way when our politicians violate their fiduciary responsibilities for the large masses of people they represent?

I wish Schwarzenegger would seek a court order to prevent shredding. State troopers should be placed in the capital to prevent it. If Davis is culpable in crime, he should go down for it.

Time for DoJ directed U.S. Marshalls to raid Davis' offices and place 24/7 guards to ensure that no documents (evidence) are destroyed. Would be a good PhotoOp to see yellow and black crime scene tape around Davis' offices too. :)

There's an AHnold event in Sacramento right now.

Perhaps a FReeper Arnold supporter could get there and tell 'em face-to-face.

There was a report a few days ago that Davis could manage to stay on as governor for a month or more even if he loses the recall, because of the legal steps involved in certifying the results (and of course Democrat officials in certain counties would stall as many days as they could)...so he will be able to destroy documents after he is actually voted out. Sort of like Clinton being able to sell last-minute pardons.

Excuse me? The former CEO of Enron, Kenneth Lay, hasn't even had any charges filed against him. Lay will probably never be brought to justice.

I was going to provide a link to the "Davis land purchase" story from the California Republican Party web site but it's no longer there, not even in their archive section. Then I went to the FR thread where the link was posted several days ago and noticed that the thread was pulled.

Wonder if we could get one of our great FReeper PhotoShop artists to gin up a composite picture of Arnold holding Greyout Davis by the ankle over a shreading machine saying "Davis, remember when I promised to play nice in this election? I lied." :) (reference scene from "Commando")

I'm not even in California, but if I was in Sacramento, I'd go to that Arnold rally and yell at the top of my lungs what Davis was doing. Let everyone hear it. Then go to all the camera crews and tell them.

I do think Davis is a gonner by Weds..

need not fretting about the tracking polls - especially those internal ones

judge by the size of the crowds in both campaigns -

arhold's crowds are growing, gonna hit over 10,000 in Sactown today

Davis, even in an union hall setting, with DiFi, Jesse-the-mopster, Boxer and Botox-pelosi, only drew a crowd in the hundreds...

think of the cali-voters who just received the license plate fees - up 300% vs last yr's bill - the voters got the bill this weds (talk about BAD TIMING for davis)

the timing of the LA-crimes story is backfiring in multiple fronts - voters see the claims as part of dirty politics, voters see LA-Crimes is trying to protect the corrupt regime in sacTown and out to get arhold, voters are getting tired of politicians playing dirty games (so - voters are pointing their fingers at Davis playing puke campaigns, and ready to vote for a non-politician politican) - seriously, had those claims come out a month earlier, arhold could well spend the following weeks to address the issues, address them during the 9/24 debate - so timing is everything - strategically, LA-crimes last minute drop might have backfired - if arhold get any sympathy votes because of the LA-crimes story, he should send a big thank you note to those gutter journalists...

btw - watch the behavior of the GOP and DNC heads on TV..I just saw that scumbag Mulholland or whatever told the GOP head to "SHUT UP, SHUT UP" - a real angry man...oh, boy - if this is not a sign of troubles to come, why the anger?? This man is about to lose his job, so will a whole bunch of dims in cali..how can a novice GOP able to dethrone the top job of a heavily dims state...and IF arhold able to improve the lives in Cali (maybe due to the overall improvement in the US economy), Cali-GOP could be more lively in 2004 - who knows, maybe GWB may have a shot in Cali in 04 as well (GWB has a steady 43-45% voting base in cali according to the late sept field poll an dif he can make that state competitive, the dims will be in deep do do..)..

Tuesday will be JUDGEMENT DAY..

and now is THE LAST DAYS for Gray Davis ...

I don't remember writing that charges were levied against Ken Lay. I was making a statement that Gray Davis should be accountable for violating his fiduciary responsibility. The California media protects him. If his gross misappropriations of funds affected a wider segment of the population perhaps something would be done about it.
