Ganim: Dem Leaders Secretly Helping Lamont–Ned Spokesman: Joe Doesn’t Deserve Public Trust

August 10th, 2018 · 29 Comments · News and Events, State Politics

From Jon Lender, Hartford Courant:

Democratic gubernatorial challenger Joe Ganim said Friday that an internal legislative campaign document shows that high-level state Democrats have secretly–and possibly illegally–assisted party-endorsed candidate Ned Lamont in voter-canvassing efforts toward Tuesday’s primary, which will determine the party’s nominee in the November election.

Party leaders denied any favoritism toward Lamont, but Ganim wasn’t buying that and he said he may file a complaint with the State Elections Enforcement Commission.

Ganim’s grievance originated Thursday, when The Courant sent him a screenshot it obtained of a survey question that’s been included in a computerized system controlled by the state Democratic Party and used by authorized campaigns to identify “prime voters” likely to support their candidates. This particular survey question–which has been used by canvassers for Democratic candidates for the state House of Representatives–was headed: “HDC Lamont Primary” and apparently was tailored for Lamont.

Full story here.

Marc Bradley, campaign manager for Lamont, issued this statement to the Connecticut Post:

Joe Ganim doesn’t understand the meaning of honesty and integrity and he doesn’t deserve a shred of public trust. Joe lives in a world where coercing city employees and city contractors for campaign contributions is the norm, and playing fast and loose with the facts is standard operating procedure.

    *** OFF TOPIC *** First lady Trump’s “mom & dad” got citizenship today through the “chain migration policy” that her husband, “Trump” has criticized & threatened to eliminate; especially migration’s from “south of the boarder”. 42% of illegal’s that are in this country are from “Visa” granted immigrates who’s work, education or extreme family situations such as illness, Visa’s have expired! All 42% are not from just “south of the boarder”, not even close. Illegals from Europe, Africa, Asia, South America, Central America, Middle East, Australia, from all parts of the world there are illegals in America! Did they all come across the “rio-grande”, don’t think so! Yes America needs to review “all” forms of legal & illegal ways of entering this country due to the many threats of terrorism against America, its allies & the western world in general. Yes, its different to hope for results by acting & being nice to world enemies in public, then tightening the screws against them if they don’t play ball. Even using different con-man tactic’s in their so-called politics may look crazy but may work. Much of Trumps con-man ways are new & look & sound foolish to the old ways of doing political work in general. Trump has made a life time of con-man deals, promises & fool hardy ideas that’s had him & his lawyers in & out of courts all over America; now from a business world to a new political/presidential world. That’s what the majority of so-called Republican R-wing white nationalist voters wanted, along with a small minority of ignorant folks of color, whom are under the impression that their in anyway part of the over-all nationalist views or future plans! As JML says, “time will tell” weather things “stay the same”, “get better” or “go to shit”, no? ***

      Mojo, the key word is 45′s wife is WHITE. 45′s mother, Mary Anne MacLeod was born in Tong, on Lewis in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. With several sisters having already established themselves there, Mary Anne MacLeod may have first visited the United States for a short stay in December 1929. Then, according to the Scottish newspaper The National, MacLeod was issued immigration visa number 26698 at Glasgow on February 17, 1930. On May 2, 1930, MacLeod departed Glasgow on board the RMS Transylvania arriving in New York City on May 11, 1930‍—‌one day after her 18th birthday, declaring she intended to become a U.S. citizen and would be staying permanently in America. In doing so she became what would later be termed an economic migrant, one of tens of thousands of young Scots who left for the United States or Canada during this period, the isle having suffered badly the consequences of World.

      Mojo, “chain migration policy” again. Immigration problem according to 45 is MS13 coming into America, Mojo, MS13 born right here in America, not south of the border. Mara Salvatrucha (MS), also known as MS-13 (the 13 representing their Sureño affiliation), is an international criminal gang that originated in Los Angeles, California, in the 1980s. when Republican Ronald Reagan was the 40th President but remember Reagan was the governor of California from 1967 to 1975.

    *** Kidding Steven over his political affixation about Ganim & past Mayor Finch is one thing however, belittling him because he’s gay is like calling him out for being a minority, no? I’ve also done it out of spike in the past on this blog towards someone else but have come to realize its not cool. Maybe in time you guys might come to realize that, no? ***

      Mojo, I understand what you are saying, I’ve never say anything that’s derogatory or negative about personal life, I respect that he’s open about a number of things especially is loyalty to certain elected officials and Steve gives as well as takes when he’s being questioned.

      Mojo, on another subject, First lady Melania Trump’s immigration attorney is criticizing the president’s hostility toward “chain migration” — a process by which U.S. citizens or permanent residents can sponsor family members to come to the country — and said the attacks are “unconscionable.”

      “This is a tradition that happens in all rank and all files of life, whether you’re president of the United States — and this is the first naturalized first lady that we have — or people who eventually navigate through the waters into America,” Michael Wildes told CNN on Friday.

      Both Melania Trump and the president’s first wife, Ivana, came to the country as immigrants. Ivana Trump, born in the former Czechoslovakia, became a naturalized citizen in 1988.
