    Default Scientologists gave $50,000 to Jeff Stone's 2010 California senate campaign

    Riverside County Supervisor Jeff Stone has been fined for failing to report contributions to his unsuccessful California state senate campaign in 2010. In addition, AnonOrange discovered information about donations by Scientologists, including Nancy Cartwright, the voice of Bart Simpson. For more details, please see:

    On June 7, 2011, AnonOrange spoke about contributions to Jeff Stone's senate campaign at the Riverside County Board of Supervisors meeting during discussion of agenda item 3.3 ("Adoption of an Order to Initiate an Ordinance for Riverside County Campaign Finance Reform"). Video of this agenda item is now on YouTube in 3 parts.

    AnonOrange's speech is in Part 2.

    Holy shit is right!
    Raises some interesting questions. For instance:

    What are the legal implications of a charitable organization using its funds to lobby/financially support specific individuals in political office? and

    How much of Keith Henson's allegations of illegal political interference in his conviction in Riverside County for interfering with a religion might well be true?

    Wow.

    From AGP on OCMB:

    Corrupt Riverside County Supervisor Jeff Stone may regret his attempt in 2010 to run for CA state senate. First, he lost. Then in 2011 one of his donors, James Larry Minor, got caught money laundering his donations to Stone and had to pay a $60,000 fine. A few months later Stone himself was fined $16,000 for not reporting donations properly. His accountant claimed he didn't know the rules despite the fact that they are printed on page ONE of the state's campaign manual. Stone is very important in the fight over Scientology because his district in Riverside is home to Scientology's world HQ Gold Base and they hold great sway over him.
    Although Stone has denied being a Scientologist he is known to hang around with members of the failing Temecula Org. His life is also organized into a series of front groups and charities very similar to Scientology. Now protester AnonOrange has found evidence that Scientologist Nancy Cartwright donated to his Republican campaign even though she is a Democrat and lives hundreds of miles away in Los Angeles. Stone's campaign tried to hide this fact.

    ANONORANGE: Yes, actress Nancy Cartwright, the voice of Bart Simpson, gave Jeff Stone money for his failed 2010 senate campaign!! And now Jeff is in trouble for failing to report it in time (DOCUMENTS See Page 5, item 1). Scientology has illegally funded Stone's campaign though various indirect means: (Churches cannot fund political candidates). Muriel Dufresne and Catherine Fraser (who admitted in the IE weekly they earn NO SALARY), cult lawyer Samuel Alhadeff (through Buchanan, Ingersoll law firm of PA). There's others I'm trying to track down like Steve DiMemmo of San Jacinto, who may contribute under a corporate name.

    Other illegal contributions:

    Bail Bondsman Fausto Atilano illegally paid $3,900 for his Senate campaign. Bondsmen cannot fund political campaigns of sheriffs and local politicians. Also Fausto told me he does the Scientology purification rundown. That pretty much means he's a Scientologist.

    We need to look at the list of his contributors carefully. Scientologist Oliver Schafer personally told me that his employees would help fund Stone's election. Stone claims his accountant made the mistake. The law is clear. Was Jeff trying to hide his Scientology connections? I will go check with the registrar of voters and find out who files Stone's political contribution forms. If it's NOT his accountant, then the good Jeff Stone will be in trouble again. The law requires that political contributions made 90 days before the election date be reported within 24 hours. Here's why this is important: During Stone's campaign, I often looked at his contributions, but never saw Nancy Cartwright listed. That's because it was filed late.

    Now I know why I couldn't find Cartwright's contribution to Stone. I had to re-download everything and look at each submittal one-by-one until I found it, but it was originally IMPOSSIBLE to locate. This is the same Nancy Cartwright who cut a check for $10 million dollars to the "Church" of Scientology some 3 years ago, but here's why I could not find her:

    1) Nancy paid her contribution on April 6, 2010, but Jeff Stone reported it on June 2, 2010, almost two months later and a mere 4 days before the elections! He was required to report it within 24 hours.

    2) The other trick is he filed her contribution as a "Late Contribution Report", on PAPER instead of online, which requires the Registrar of Voters staff to process them manually, redacting the addresses with a black marker and (most importantly) making Google searches impossible.

    3) The Registrar of Voters generally reports contributions twice a year. The documents show up approximately one month after the closure of the reporting period. Reporting period ( 01/01/2010 to 06/30/2010 ) will show up in late July. Reporting period ( 07/01/2010 to 12/31/2010 ) will show up in late January the next year.

    So even though the contributions were filed four days before the elections, there was NO WAY TO SEE THEM!! They only showed up AFTER the elections. I consider this a pretty serious and a clear violation of election laws. On the other hand, it is true that it was his accountant that filed the reports, but why did he wait two months? I'd love to see that accountant being recorded during a deposition. You can see the name of the accounting firm at the top of the PDF file Kubler, Prudhomme & Co. which was sent to the registrar of voters on June 2.

    Nancy Cartwright is most likely a Democrat and funds Democrats.
    Documents: http://www.angrygaypope.com/docs/jef...0_analyzed.pdf
    I correlated the entire list of donors to Jeff Stone's 2010 Cal Senate election campaign with Google searches of scientologists. 34 are confirmed Scientologists, 11 are suspicious donors (Out of state, or some possible Scientology association), four considered "illegal" donations and about a dozen "interesting" donors.

    It is not illegal for scientologists to donate to Jeff Stone, of course. However, it appears that there was a lot of influence applied by Corporate Scientology to coerce people to donate and THAT would be illegal. Sometimes we see multiple small donations from people that live out of the district. The Mormon church got in trouble for doing something similar with Prop 8 and had to pay a fine.

    In addition, if executives in CoS are indirectly making donations from Church coffers (because they earn no salary), then that's illegal too.

    Those are some of the things we must expose. The sooner this is done, the sooner the human right abuses at Gold Base will end.

    Please spend some time to check though my list to see if I may have erroneously categorized someone or if I forgot a donor from the original list (attached).

    If you are aware of illegal activities by any of these donors, please advise. I'll make good use of the data, but will keep my source secret.

    This info, once properly vetted will be submitted to http://www.fppc.ca.gov/ There's a meeting on June 9.

    I will announce these findings at the next Board of Sups meeting of June 7, 2011.

    Illegal campaign financing need to be brought to the light of day.

    Please post and distribute far and wide.

    Aw, crud!!! Well, this is disturbing...And here I thought San Bernardino County was rife with political corruption! Darn, this makes the whole County look bad. Sigh. I'm glad this came to light. They need to enforce the campaign contribution limits and rules about who can contribute. (I don't care what this Anon guy says, you've got to have rules in a civilized society!)

    AnonyMary may have identified a couple more, can anybody else add to the list?:

    Not sure if AO saw these scientologists in the lot:

    Kenneth Gerbino $3,000

    Elizabeth Baybak $3,900

    I think the list of donors was posted somewhere by Angry Gay Pope (what kind of a nickname is that, anyway, is the guy an ex-Catholic?) but it would be good for Exes here to look through the list and help to identify any other out of state or local Scientology businesses/individuals/front groups, etc. Maybe there was more than $50,000 donated.

    Scientology campaign contributions=Special Interest Group (from hell!)

    Why isn't there more oversight over campaign contributions during elections? Oh yeah, I guess they were trying to fix this...

    I'd say yes, we need some kind of campaign finance reform, and more transparency in reporting. Meh!
    I iz dizgusted!

    Now that's interesting! These are all boldface names from IAS patron lists and Reed Slatkin investors lists.

    Ken Gerbino's office in Beverly Hills. He also used to live in Beverly Hills, and probably still does.

    The Baybaks live in La Canada Flintridge (Glendale), California, and in Clearwater.

    George Duggan lives in Santa Barbara.

    Their California residences are 50 - 150 miles away from Riverside County.

    Sounds to me like the Church of Scientology has a PAC (political action committee) that isn't registered anywhere. Hmmmmmm.
