I got a couple of phone calls from my supporters, who alerted me that today sheriff Arpaio is speaking at an elections event at Apple Valley.
Originally I was hesitant about this event, as it is 2 hours away, however I was told that several hundred people are expected, so I decided to drive 2 hours in each direction to Apple Valley.
After sheriff spoke, he asked for any questions. I went to the stage and reminded him that I am the attorney who delivered to him documents showing a forged birth certificate and a stolen Social Security number, he remembered me. I told him that I have several cases going and it is very important for him to come to a deposition and I wanted to know, when can he appear for a deposition.
His response was strange. He asked me, where do I live, whether I live in that area. I told him that I live in CA, but not in the Apple valley. He proceeded with a small talk and said that there are really nice restaurants in the area. I was not getting his train of thought. I asked him, if he would appear for a dpeosition and he was telling me something completely different, he was asking where do I live and saying that there are really nice restaurants in the area. This was in front of several hundred people. I am not sure what was he thinking. Did he think that I would be conducting a deposition at my house or a restaurant? All I could tell him, was that if he wants to do a deposition at a restaurant, I guess we can have it a restaurant.
He proceeded to introduce me to the public. He was actually nice and complementary. He told the public that I am an attorney, that I am going after Obama. Everybody started clapping, I waived to the public. At that point I figured, I’ll use the opportunity to announce my campaign. I grabbed the mic from Phil Libertori, who was standing next to Joe and announced that I am running for the US senate against Feinstein.
Everybody got really excited and clapped. This was Libertori’s event and I could not hog time any further. Later, when Arpaio asked for more questions, I asked, when will he submit a report. He looked surprised and asked what report. I stated “When will you submit an official report with Obama investigation results to the District Attorney for prosecution?” Arpaio said ” I don’t need to submit to no District Attorney” I asked “So, where will you submit it?” He became really evasive and said that he did not finish his investigation and he does not know yet.
So, the only thing that I was able to find out, was the fact that he likes to go to nice restaurants, which is not very helpful for the case.
On a positive note, after the speech I got mobbed with requests for fliers, everyone said they’ll vote for me. Some said that they’ll vote because I am going after Obama, some because I am going after Feinstein. Some said, you look pretty, I’ll vote for you (really deep thought). There were probably some 400 people at the event. There were cameras and a local reporter interviewed me. There should be clips on the net and there will be an article in the local paper. The reporter said he too several pictures of me talking to Arpaio.
Interesting factoid. One of the people there said that he was a teamster, that most teamsters are Democrats and in 20 years he never met anyone who voted for Feinstein. Interesting.
Last time I ran, there was a big tea party meeting at a nearby Victorville. There were some 700 people and 75% according to the straw poll taken after the event, voted for me. Later the vote was flipped, they announced that my oppornent got 74%. I saw the same flipping of the vote in Nevada in Angle-Reid race.
So, I instructed a number of people that there might be a flipping of the vote. I advised them to create a sign in sheets of voters, letting them know how they will vote. If the numbers look flipped or any other way wrong, we will be able to go after the state and the Sec of State.
