ALTERNATE FACTS COME TO STOREY COUNTY…..THE PEOPLE BEHIND THE ANTINORO RECALL ARE MAKING FALSE CLAIMS THAT THEY REPRESENT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY! THIS SOUNDS DESPERATE…..THEY MUST NOT HAVE ENOUGH SIGNATURES TO DO THE DEED.
By Nicole Barde
Whether you are for or against the recall this should disturb you…you are being manipulated.
A couple of weeks ago I was told that the people behind the recall were making phone calls to citizens in Storey County and implying that they were WITH the Storey County government. I basically dismissed it as a “one off”. I mean really, what a lie, so easy to check.
I was wrong. I forgot for a moment who was behind the recall……lesson learned.
Yesterday I was asked to post the following letter from the County and State Republican Party on the Blog to inform people that the person behind the recall is essentially invoking party partisanship to fool people into signing the petition. Must think that the voters are stupid and gullible.
What’s next? Dead people signing, duplicate signatures, schoolchildren signing…or the Comforte tactic of non-resident brothel workers signing? I just hope that a disinterested third party audits the hell out of the signatures.
The person behind the recall has until February 8th, 2017 to collect signatures. From what I can tell there are three possible outcomes for this effort:
Petition Sufficient: Call Issued for Special Election
Petition Not Filed or Insufficient Petition Filed before the Expiration of the Notice of Intent: No Special Election
If Court Hears Challenge to Petition and Orders No Special Election
It is getting close to the closing date for the effort and I would expect that we will be seeing more tactics aimed at getting more people to sign the petition……let’s see how “alternate” they get.
Letter from the Republican Party below, original HERE:
Dear Storey County Voter;
We are advised some people in the County have been called by individuals with the recall effort claiming to represent the Nevada Republican Party. We write today to inform all in the county that there is NO involvement, affiliation, or endorsement of the effort to recall Sheriff Antinoro by either the Nevada Republican Party or the Storey County Republican Party. We strongly condemn individuals who would misrepresent themselves in this manner to apparently coerce support. And, we call for the leaders of the recall effort to take steps to prevent any future occurrence of such misrepresentation.
If anyone receives contact from any representative of the recall effort who directly or indirectly implies they represent the State or County Republican organizations, please record as much information about the person and the contact as you can and send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com .
Michael J. McDonald
