VALIDATION

According to the OC Registrar of Voters the sampling of the Fullerton Recall signatures has validated the number needed to recall Bankhead, Jones and McKinley.

Here’s what the sampling projects for totals:

McKinley 13,604

Bankhead 13,355

Jones 14,361

The recall needed about 10,500 to qualify. Not even close.

And now it’s time for the Three Dithering Dinosaurs to certify the signatures themselves and call a special election. This will be agendized for February 21, 2012. Will they do it?

  1. Hell YES!!!!! WE did it! This was a WE and an US who made this happen. Thank you to everyone who helped or supported us! muah!

    1. I really do want to give special thanks and hugs to Tony, Chris for getting this off the ground and the successful strategies put forth…to both of them and ElleBear and others for awesome support and friendship that kept me and others together. I’m afraid to mention other names for fear of leaving one or two out but it was a group of us that pulled together and as I keep saying, it was a team that made this happen.

      Now phase ll … we cannot allow the importance or the need of this Recall to fade even slightly. Keep nailing these three to resign. Keep the yard signs up. I need some! Bring it in any conversation you can. Keep the momentum going.

    1. Thank YOU, Travis! Your tech knowledge with putting the videos and editing together…everything you helped put here helped the Recall immensely! You did amazing work and are extremely creative.

  2. And now it’s time to start hearing from replacement candidates.

    Conservatives, liberals, libertarians. The more the better.

    The old Chamber of Commerce idiots and City Hall butt kissers are finished!

  3. Bravo!

    Congratulations to all of you for a job well done. Fabulous.

    FFFF and the good people of Fullerton took control of poor Kelly’s outrageous murder and refused to let it go. Like I said, bravo!

    cornpone jones and his rotten little posse never, ever expected the hell that has, and is, coming their way.

    You guys did this. Awesome. Fullertonians have set the bar for the rest of us who want to restore sanity to our communities.

    Thank you. You guys are simply the best; truly an inspiration. This is a big deal, man.

    Thanks and praises to you.

    Justice for Kelly Thomas.

  4. See ya all at the council meeting! They gotta do June. Delays will cost the city way to much money! 150k or 400k. Oh wait LOL I guess we know which one they will choose.

    1. Still trying huh?

      A consolidated primary election will cost the City less than $20 grand. Kelley’s sampling count will cost less than $10K. $30 thousand to get rid of the Sclerotic Sloths? Hell, that’s priceless.

      Guess I’ll have to write a post on how cheap it will be to get rid of the Dithering Dictators.

      1. Oh sorry. I’ve seen a bunch of different figures but just saw this when I posted that:

        From the City of Fullerton’s Public Information Office –
        The City of Fullerton has received notification from the Orange County Registrar of Voters that the recall petitions against three council members have sufficient signatures to qualify for the ballot.  
        The petitions asked the city to place a recall of Fullerton Council Members Dr. F. Dick Jones, Don Bankhead and Pat McKinley on the ballot.   The City Council will certify the signatures at its February 21 meeting.
        According to Fullerton City Clerk, Lucinda Williams, “the California Election Code allows the city to hold this special election in consolidation with the June 5 presidential primary.  The council has some discretion on the election date, within certain parameters outlined in the Elections Code.”
        The city has  paid nearly $10,000 to validate signatures but the final cost to the city for the recall is dependent on how the council chooses to proceed, noted Williams.  “If the council decides to hold a stand alone special election the cost will be between $269,000 and $301,000.  If they choose to consolidate with the June primary then the cost will be between $129,000 and 160,000.”
        Fullerton citizens who wish to run for open council seats should the recall pass can begin the process by contacting the City Clerks office at CityClerk’[email protected] or calling 714.738.6350. The fee to file for candidacy is $25 and there is an optional $1200 fee if you wish to have a candidate’s statement on the ballot.  The deadline for filing is March 9.

        1. Total propaganda. A recall consolidated with the primary election costs half of a stand alone election? I call bullshit!

        2. To Mr. Peabody: The savings from a consolidation of any local election with a general election is usually collossal. The Legislature back in the 1990s passed a series of laws to permit such consolidations, because the savings were so large. But for recalls, the biggest change was to cause the “replacement election” to occur at the same time as the “recall election”. The result is to cut the total expense of the recall election process in half, once for all. It also eliminates the “lame duck” period, when the recalled officials continue to act. Things are so much better and easier now, than when we ran the First Recall. Best wishes, WSH

  5. I guess you did have the sigs by Christmas as promised. Your ploy to delay turning them in burnt a major hole through the Dinosaur’s bank account.

    Brilliant strategy! Those boobs never knew what hit them.

    1. Yep. never knew what hit ’em. The pros Ackerman and Ellis were bushwhacked. Can’t wait for the real fun!

      Fullerton is not for sale! Bankhead, Jones and Mcpension already sold it!

  6. Can’t wait until these guys are out and real leadership is seated! Thank You everyone involved for making this happen.

  7. Maybe the three can go down now and thank the city attorney for that great advice to keep mum and lay low when stand up civic leadership was needed.

  8. I pondered the very same thing today, when will the Recall signatures be validated?

    The delay in turning in the signatures for validation = less time for the anti Recall folks less time to mobilize their feeble forces.

    Even I know the 3 Amigos are wondering, “What to do now? ” I like the fact they get to pick their poison. Conjoin the Recall election with the June primary just brings their demise that much quicker. Opt for a Special Election, cost hte city more $$$ and get excoriated by the voters.

    Any way they could not bring this to a vote next Council meeting? What happens if one of the 3 is ill or incapacitated and can not make that night’s meeting?

    1. Re: The city has paid nearly $10,000 to validate signatures but the final cost to the city for the recall is dependent on how the council chooses to proceed, noted Williams. “If the council decides to hold a stand alone special election the cost will be between $269,000 and $301,000. If they choose to consolidate with the June primary then the cost will be between $129,000 and 160,000.”

      Either choice posited by FPS above results in a “lose-lose” situation (damned if they do and damned if they don’t); based on the timing of the validation, the first scheduled Council meeting for a vote will be 02/21/12 unless a special meeting is called or a vote can be included at the 02/07/21 meeting – there is something called a “minute motion” but I’m not sure if it would work for this.

      Scheduling of a vote for which way to go re: recall election could be a nice “talking point” during public comments at the 02/07/12 meeting 🙂

      Congrats on making the cut for a recal election!~

  9. I noticed that there is about $50000 in the FPOA PAC.
    Do you think Coffitup & Goodslime have the guts to put this 50K in the proven losers pot?
    Which of the three will be K-9 chow and where will they find a BONAFIDE Fullerton resident that will be the poster person for the FPD?
    If any present FPD personnel has any sense or any say in how the FPOA wastes their money, perhaps a better use would be to buy a couple of horses to go with those Segways and Trail bikes.
    With the FPD having 2 horses they would have 145+2 verifiable assholes.

    1. They collect more each pay period. Even from the ones on admin leave.

      However the answer to your question is yes. They are that dumb. Still even an idiot like Coffman will have to worry about leaving enough to back three more loser candidates in November.

  10. An interesting point to be made is, can the council members subject to recall, vote on any matter concerning the recall ?
    If it is determined that they cannot participate, will it be necessary for the State Judiciary to appoint a Judge to oversee all matters pertaining to the recall?
    Hopefully so.

  11. Good work and thank you Tony and Chris! When I would travel around running errands in Fullerton I would always say hello to the recall volunteers. A very dedicated group, and I was happy to help collect signatures with them!

    1. Forgot about the one tomorrow. I’ll be at the slidebar and then the meeting on the 21st though. Should be some good fireworks. 🙂 🙂

      Why Justice for Kelly Thomas Is About More Than the Police Officers Who Killed Him

      http://bit.ly/xsQNxv

  12. AP The entire staff at the Miramonte Elementary school were removed following parent outrage and a blitz of national media of horrifying allegations against two male teachers.
    The reason for the suspension, “We don’t need any more surprises.”

    Might Genoco after his assesment recomend …”The entire staff of the FPD were removed following fullerton citizin outrage and a blitz of national media of after the horrifying allegations against two male officers.”

    Its true most officers were not involved but many knew what was going on out on the streets” .

  13. a victory for good, the next battle will be shaking off Jones, Bankhead and McKinley’s sycophants and cronies who sense the looming power vacuum on fullerton city council will make it easy for them to get elected to Fullerton’s government.
    Tony and his fellow champions for justice and decency efforts will be in vain if the good people of fullerton don’t radically depart from what has been the status quo of governing our town for decades.
    If the smell of redevelopment funds, collaboratives,pension spiking, water tax hikes lingers on any city council candidate vote no on their greedy aspirations. In sum, any candidate endorsed by Sharon Kennedy’s Fullerton Observer will not represent the interests of the good people of Fullerton; remember Pam Keller.
    We, the good people of Fullerton, need representatives who understand our government is designed to protect and promote the interests of the individual and his or her entrepreneurial spirit. Onerous taxes, using public monies to unfairly compete in the private sector, governmnet over regulation to generate city revenue and manipulating public lands to benefit the select few squash private enterprise that is so badly needed to create and sustain a healthy business climate that our economy needs more than government sponsored enterprises, since government only floats on the taxes generated from private property, business and industry.

    The Fullerton PD can be abusive and this may be the tip of the iceberg. Once I saw a girl selling something, maybe cookies, in front of a supermarket Fullerton. She was sitting on the ground back up against the wall, obviously intimidated, while a huge officer lorded himself over her barking something about why is she lying to him. I’m still angry for not saying something to someone. Once I was pulled over and for the next hour they searched me and my car. But my gripe is the nazi type attitude the officer gave me at the same time I was 100% cooperative. I’m genuinely surprised I wasn’t falsely accused of something. After they searched my engine my battery went dead forcing me to call a tow truck at a cost of $175 – that was no coincidence. I don’t look like trouble, I’m a 50 year old professional driving a white SUV. A single taser jolt to a 135 lb homeless man should take enough fight out of him to safely put the cuffs on. Mr. Thomas, don’t take the money until there is a full investigation, which won’t happen any time soon. And my condolences – I may have bought your son food a couple times. Friendly suggestion, give the money to the Orangewood Children’s Foundation Guardian Scholars program in a trust under your sons name.

      I know first hand of the mass corruption that has gone on at fpd. This is sickening that a man lost his life ( I know of other incidences of police neglect etc.. where arrestees have died because of how this dept. has cuffed them). I pray justice is served quick for these monsters and those who seem to have gotten away with it all these years. There is so much this dept. has done on at the taxpayer expense that would make you sick! Look at what happens to a man who is tased once, not to mention twice, etc… There is no medical way for him to “resist arrest” this is what cops say to “justify” their abuse. Stay strong Thomas family and fight this corrupt, cancer of a department till the end!

  16. August 13, 2011
    Beating deaths by cop is a national crisis and is indeed out of control. I have watched 100′s of videos of cops either murdering or beating people. I am from Arizona…I have witnessed so many incidents like this that it makes you want to puke. The day is nearing that the tide will turn … …because they are fed up with dirty cops. The Kelly Thomas tragedy is the shot heard around the world. When cops start bleeding in the streets of America…maybe then they will evaluate, but I doubt it because cops are cowards.

      The most chilling aspect to all this, except for the killing of a human being, is that all the Officers on the scene had complete confidence that none of the other Officers would say or do a thing. Beyond that, they knew that nobody back in the Department would say or do anything. This is not the story of a rogue Officer or two, this is a systemic problem within the Department. The Police must be held to a higher standard because they have the Law on their side.
      This behavior will not stop until a force greater than the Police intervenes. The City Council? DA? Grand Jury? Where are these guardians of the public when a situation really matters?

      1. taking advice from Rusty Kennedy, CEO of the Orange County Human Relations Commission(OCHRC), a tax dollar funded commission proud to call retired Fullerton police chief, Pat McKinley a member of its board, on how to end the systemic civil rights abuses committed by fullerton police officers?.
        The OCHRC mission statement, for the last thirty years and when Mckinley served on its board, is to promote better community and police relations, and act as a “clearinghouse for the community’s complaints of police officers violating their civil rights.

        Uh, on second thought, maybe the OC DA, grand jury, city council should not take advice from Rusty Kennedy because it is either ineffective or negates Fullerton’s community’s complaints of abuse suffered at the hands of their very own police force.

        this is my opinion formed from the media

    1. Well, they might just have some more “surprises” (skeletons) awaiting them from prior incidents.
      Like Fullerton is now finding out about.

      I can’t wait until next tuesday’s council meeting-wonder if Molly Mclannahan will be there with her notes and if Bennett will be in attandence for moral support.
      The anti-recallers vowed “big time” defense if the signatures were found to be valid (on the NBC taped interview) hmmm, whatever that means.

      haha

    The DA,FBI,Gennacco, and a wrongful death lawsuit has been filed.

    You could not get anymore people looking at you than that.

    If you have ever been a party to such an investigation, you will know, not much else can happen until you are finally sitting in a State or Federal prison, or paying someone part of your pension for the rest of your life.

    Do I feel sorry for those involved, NO!!

    The City and it’s leaders should have seen this coming long ago with the other misdeeds and scandals that have been mentioned here.

    They ignored the obvious warning signs of disaster.
    1. Failed to pay attention to history and past incidents that involve Law Enforcement in general.
    2. Their “sense of entitlement” “arrogance” past history of getting away with misconduct, blinded their ability to see the forrest for the trees.
    3. Personal agenda’s of a few, created an atmosphere of fear for ANYONE who was honest in thought and deed from doing the right thing.
    4. Politics and personal greed overshadowed, “public policy” concerns thus setting the stage for what we now see.

  19. @ACU As always Thank You for your very concise and well written comments. Please Please, dont tire of us and leave.

  20. Like I said before, UNTIL laws are passed that hold the leaders accountable with SEVERE civil and criminal penalties for this type of conduct, NOTHING will change with the good ol boys EVERYWHERE.

    Now if Mike Sellers was sitting next to Ramos and Cincinelli awaiting trial, EVERY Chief of Police,Sheriff and command staff in this great country of ours, would be scared to death about not doing the “right thing”.

    NO Sellers did not kill Kelly. But his failure to handle his business MIGHT have.

    Let’s charge him with “failure to supervise”. Let the newly enacted law for Police Supervisors be a felony, with a sentence of 5 years in State prison, loss of pension, and life time medical benefits. The money would go to pay for the criminal trial, and damages awarded by the courts.

    Medical retirements BECOME null and void upon CONVICTION.

    Make no mistake the Chief’s and Sheriff’s would get there due process like anyone else. BUT the cities and counties COULD NOT pay their legal fees either.

    These folks could start their own Legal Defense Fund to fight the charges of malfeasance.

    There is NO DETERENT in the system to get these folks to think about their neglegence or “failure to supervise”.

    What do we see here in Fullerton, like everywhere else when trouble hits, the Chief slides out the back door with a pocket full of money while those they were suppose to lead await their fate, and maybe go to prison.

    The recall is a start, but will it wipe out the good ol boys? Maybe, but I think not.

    If the 3 Amigos get recalled and they can get another crony on board, ALL is not lost in the BIG PICTURE.

    If one was to bring such a law before legislation you would see fierce opposition to it.

    Why, all the legislatures might lose their, “get out of free” jail card. No more getting a ride home when you get caught drunk driving. That little courtesy is just an example.

    Now let me be fair to the Chiefs and Sheriff’s, we could set DEGREES of “failing to supervise” into a progressive punishment matrix.

    Maybe a simple fine, if we learn they ordered their officers to take the mayor home when caught drunk driving. But the entire matter would be a public affair. TRANSPERANCY.

    We can work our way up by the seriousness of the offense. BUT it will be a public affair no matter what the issue.

    You want to make the big bucks and benefits for whatever reason, YOU pay the big penalties like everyone else.

    The California Highway Patrol has a strict policy in place for their officers who CUT SLACK to a DUI driver.

    30 days suspension if caught for STARTERS. Hmmm that would be about a $6 or 7K fine, pretty stiff actually for taking a chance on cutting slack to someone you might not know, but who is a fellow cop or politician.

    Just food for thought.

    1. Reality Is :ACU you know none of this is realistic. You know that very well.

      Who crowned you Mr. Clairvoyant?
      You don’t know what anybody knows…
      Nor do you know what anybody is thinking…
      That’s the problem with you mis-guided and poorly trained police folks. You THINK you know how to ‘size people up’, profile and all those other BS cliches. YOUR kind of attitude and outlook on THE PEOPLE are reasons innocent people are getting arrested all of the time.
      What happens when the innocent complain to your brass about harrassment?
      More harrassment from the upper ASSHOLES (I meant Brassholes).

      I wont’t hold my breath for your ‘smiley faced’ reply.

  21. Now the next PENALTY for Chief and Sheriff’s.

    If they are found to be responsible for “retaliating” against ANY COP for doing his/her job in enforcing the laws of the state they work in, they get TERMINATED for said retaliation.

    The cops who get screwed with for not playing the corrupt games of management, cops who WANT to simply follow the rules set forth within the system.

    Retaliation against HONEST cops is as much a problem within Law Enforcement as people dying like Kelly Thomas. YOU seldom hear about that stuff.

    A little internet research will confirm what I say again is well within the ball park of my commentary.

    You might recall where RI was pounding the pom poms for MANAGEMENT who were kicking corrupt cops to the curb and the legal defense fund is overworked?

    Yes that is correct, the legal defense fund lawyers are busy fighting for cops who work for CORRUPT managers too.

    But what is not known to many is some of those lawyers are corrupt and cover for corrupt managers too.

    Another area of LE that many don’t know about, but is also OUT of control.

    Who is paying for alot of that, YOU the taxpayer.

    Now you know why I mentioned this about lawyers early on.

    Make NO MISTAKE corruption within Law Enforcement is not at the street level to the degree people like RI might want you to believe.

    Is a bad person the product of bad parenting?

    Maybe, maybe not. But one must LOOK when the parents say, it isn’t my fault Johnny is a crook.

  22. I hope Gennaco is filing a unbiased report. I’m tired of all the favors and cover-ups. I wonder if anybody was watching HIM, validating his procedure as credible.

  23. Speaking of such, Gennaco’s report should be about done according to a comment last month from city attorney Jones.

    Whatcha got G-man?

  24. Wrong Guy :
    Speaking of such, Gennaco’s report should be about done according to a comment last month from city attorney Jones.

    I will be surprised if the report is released before the trial starts.

    If it happens, then we can see what he says and go from there.

  25. Fullerton to vote on 3 councilmen’s futures

    McKinley has said that by remaining silent, the council members were simply following the city attorney’s advice.

    “We want to get our message out that we were following the law and the Constitution,” McKinley said Tuesday. “I’m sure we will have a lot of people coming against us, and a lot of people coming out for us.”

    http://www.ocregister.com/news/city-339180-signatures-election.html

    1. the laws outlined in our Constitution demand all levels of representative government be directly accountable to the public first. It is not discretionary for government officials to decide what the public needs to know and what should be hidden from them because they work for us not the other way around.

    2. So I guess, Bruce and Silva didnt comply with the law/Constitution-
      What a bunch of spin hogwash.
      Great message to get out-that you are a harmful lying sack, figurehead, who won’t make a move unless someone elses tells him what to do.

      It seems to me the attorney ran the city, not find the easy way out, passive/agressive, Mckinley

  26. Sorry McKinley but NO right-minded people will ever be coming out FOR you!

    You’re an absolute ‘FAILURE’. Here you go again with another one of your unedumacated blunders with “I’m sure we will have a lot of people coming against us, and a lot of people coming out for us”.
    How in the hell does one come against another?
    They can’t; it’s a conflicted twisted statement, just like yourself!

    In fact, I’ve yet to hear you make any profound statements or even complete one without using one of your ‘alien’ words like “bloused”.

    Those are only your communication deficiencies. Your failures as a leader as a Fullerton councilman are painfully and ‘violently’ obvious. (How’s that for speaking McKInley?)

    1. strange grammar and word use is a common tool psychcopaths use to obscure any real meaning and allow for future obfuscation of definition of what they meant to say

  27. merijoe :So I guess, Bruce and Silva didnt comply with the law/Constitution-What a bunch of spin hogwash.Great message to get out-that you are a harmful lying sack, figurehead, who won’t make a move unless someone elses tells him what to do.

    And why did attorney Jones wait until a council meeting in October to inform the people that the council by law (police bill of rights law included) the council must remain silent due to the criminal case?

    It simply took them three months to come up with that lame excuse?!?!? Bullshit!

    That’s how dumb they really is…

    LOU, are you and Reality Is related in anyway?

    Serious dude, it’s obvious you haven’t been in the trenches of any real wars, have not figured out where common sense and real world seperate.

    Do you have any more pictures of FPD you would like to post for some more feel good sessions on behalf of FPD?

    You forgot to take pictures of the men’s room and shower, the break room, and the parking structure for the city’s police cars.

    Go back and do that when you can, and along with your other commentary EVERYONE will show up at the council meeting wanting to give Chief Hughes a big hug.

    NO SHIT the city attorney told everyone to remain silent. So he could make some money figuring out how to get everyone’s ass out of hot water.

    Get A CLUE LOU!!!!!!!

    1. An unelected city attorney wants to keep city residents groping in the dark as to what actually happened regarding the brutal killing of an unarmed man. How convenient! As a result, those men remained at large and armed with weapons for weeks while the people had to investigate what happened for themselves. Because of that clandestine secrecy, Lou Ponsi now feels free to say those involved “came across the mentally-ill homeless man in a parking lot while looking for a possible car-burglary suspect.” We have heard from Barnett lately slamming Kelly. Too bad Kelly doesn’t have an advocate in the criminal justice system to set Ponsi straight. Hey Lou, did you bother to read the press release from the DA? He said,”Ramos and Officer Wolfe contacted Thomas in the FTC north bus entrance lane near the intersection of East Santa Fe Avenue and South Pomona Avenue.” That is where the bus bench is located. You see Lou, your contortion of the facts leads your readers to a false conclusion. Certainly, you don’t want that to happen.

  29. Reality is…a RECALL SUCCESS!

    great comments, I liked….
    “This is not the story of a rogue Officer or two, this is a systemic problem within the Department. “
    ..
    “What do we see here in Fullerton, like everywhere else when trouble hits, the Chief slides out the back door with a pocket full of money”

    Sellars sold his soul to the devil. Funny thing happens when the devil comes to collect.

  30. The devil is a very austere master and always exacts an inordinate amount in return which can certainly never be repaid. Such fools.

  31. We’re half way there! We have everyone’s attention now as we start phase ll. They’ll be working harder than ever to lessen our support. Please don’t help them. Their anti-recall tactics helped send people our way. Let’s not return the favor. Let them have it tonight but please remain civil. A lot of people will be watching it tonight from home (me included), probably more than usual. Let’s keep the focus on them, not us and don’t let up!

  32. I am so proud of the citizens of Fullerton for accomplishing their recall goals (and then some) for signatures. I will be watching the City Council meeting live tonight. I read the agenda and paused for a moment under the Conference with Legal Council section. I noticed that the pending tow truck litigation is on the agenda as well as another case. Could anyone please explain item no. 5 under that section to me? It seems to me that there are two pending cases but the City has only significant exposure in one of them? Does anyone know anything about that?

  33. This news has truly made my day! It was worth being treated like dirt by the opposing side’s sheep while gathering signatures. Fume away!!!

  34. Candidates for open council seats have to file soon, pay a tiny fee, or a larger one if they want some kind of message on the ballot. Tony, despite your modesty, it’s your turn up at bat. Who would fill the other two seats? Come on…this has been a long battle. Tony, huddle with your best counselors and try to identify the other two that you’d care to have with you while you straighten this horrendous mess out. Thank you for everything that you’ve done for the city..and for America!
