In the summer of 2015 I wrote to the Federal Bureau of Investigation that the Medford election of 2015 would be stolen. The math was easy to do. Candidate Robert M. Penta wanted to audit the high school and city hall, audit the previous administration which held power for 28 years. Three decades is a long time to have one individual in control of a city under plan A. And the fact that I am the ONLY Medford resident shaking the tree via public records requests, speeches at the city council regarding those requests and peaceful activistm makes me a target.
I believe the Burke Administration concocted the phony charges that have personally cost me thousands of dollars to defend, just as I fought TV3 and it cost me thousands and thousands of dollars. You, Medford citizen, now have over 600K in the bank thanks to my hard work and honest efforts in defeating TV3.
I respectfully note that Robert Penta put his neck on the line and was instrumental in the defeat of TV3. As far as non-elected citizens, no one else worked as hard as Pat Fiorello or myself to expose the shenanigans. Mr. Penta was attacked throughout the campaign with smears; I have been mercilessly attacked by over a dozen individuals - some government officials, some hacks that abused the system. But the bottom line is that a few determined, persistent people can make a difference.
You see, sixty thousand or so people in Medford either are afraid to ask questions or are too complacent and can't be bothered asking questions. It is your civic DUTY to ask questions. The campaigns of Stephanie Muccini-Burke and Donald Trump were based on mud-flinging, distractions while they stole the respective elections that they were in. What boggles the mind is that a victim of such scurrilous tactics would embrace Trump, who is every bit as deceitful and two-faced as Mrs. Burke. That goes not only for Bob Penta but Officer John Ghilain, both victims of Mrs. Burke, both Trump supporters. They just don't see with the clarity needed to make bold, courageous choices.
I can give a pass to my friend John Byers for watching Fox News and accepting the fiction they offer as fact (Mr. Byers is in a huge group of people who believe that the Fox News charade is actually that - "news," so he's not alone,) but men engaged in public safety - intelligent men like Mr. Ghilain and Mr. Penta?
Realizing that they drank the Kool-Aid is like sticking your finger in the light socket - it is as shocking as that. Hit me with a bolt of lightning - it is solid evidence of why this city is going backwards and why the country is swapping spit with Vladmir Putin, a big ugly French kiss to that member of the KGB* (think Bush's father as head of the CIA.)
*As head of the Russian Federation, I believe Putin is in total control of the KGB, so I still consider him a "member," and membership has its privileges.
Putin and Trump have taken national politics to the level beyond politicians lying and cheating: world domination is their goal and THAT WE HAVE NO SAFETY NETS IN PLACE IN A DEMOCRATIC SOCIETY RIFE WITH VOTER FRAUD SINCE THE 19th CENTURY IS AN INDICATION OF HOW CLUELESS THE SHEEP AROUND THE WORLD ARE. Until something devastating happens and we need a peaceful revolution to correct things and bring us back to some semblance of order that benefits all of us, not just the "elite" who took it without asking.
Alleged Election Fraud Goes Back to the days of Edgar Allan Poe
"Cooping" in the 19th Century; Alleged registering of students from a college who area already registered in another state in 2015 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cooping
Cooping was a form of electoral fraud in the United States during the 19th century by which unwilling participants were forced to vote, often several times over, for a particular candidate in an election.
Sometimes the victims would be forced to wear disguises such as wigs, fake beards or mustaches to prevent them from being recognized by voting officials at polling stations. Edgar Allan Poe is thought by some to have been the victim of cooping before his mysterious death in early October 1849.
