"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."

NRSC Launches New California TV Ad, “Nothing Will Change” -- Boxer Fails to Report House on Ethics Report

"Nothing Will Change" is probably the understatement of the year.  Barbara 'Call me Senator' Boxer is one of the more dense along with being arrogant Senators we have.  Cannot believe the people of California kept sending her back to DC.  Makes one wonder how many illegal votes have been cast over the years when Obama can go in the state and encourage Latinos to punish the enemies of immigration reform.  How many illegals have voted in California?  We already know in Los Angeles, they will move polling places right before the election so legitimate voters have a hard time finding them.

We are hoping the next Governor of California will be Meg Whitman and a priority will be to clean up the voting lists in the precincts in California especially in the large cities where voter fraud is rampant.  Wonder how much more of a percentage of voters has to turn out in California to counter the voter fraud?  The United States sends representatives overseas to monitor elections when we have massive election fraud in our own Country which the DOJ turns a blind eye.  Now the Holder DOJ also has turned a blind eye to voter intimidation by the new Black Panthers which you would see in a 3rd World Country.

Californians now have a chance to make a difference by retiring Barbara Boxer and her lack of ethics and electing Carly Fiorina to be their next Senator who will work for Californians not Obama/Reid.

NRSC Launches New California TV Ad, “Nothing Will Change” Tuesday, October 26, 2010 @ 11:10 AM

The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) announced its first independent expenditure television advertisement in California today, entitled "Nothing Will Change," highlighting millionaire U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer’s (D-CA) failed record in Washington supporting higher taxes and job crushing policies in Washington.

NRSC Press Secretary Amber Marchand issued the following statement:

"Millionaire Senator Barbara Boxer has spent her entire career looking out for the best interests of one person: herself. Boxer’s partisan, ineffective work in Washington fighting for higher taxes and job killing policies haven’t helped the families, seniors, and job creators in California who are facing more than 12 percent unemployment today."
The Los Angeles Times’ Maeve Reston reports:

Though the criticism of Boxer's effectiveness and the charge that she's been in office too long mirrors the core message of Republican challenger Carly Fiorina's campaign, the NRSC's new spot seeks to get the attention of women with a female narrator and images of seven women looking solemnly in the camera... The NRSC ad is part of its $7.8-million investment in the race, the first $4.8 million of which was directed toward a series of ads in concert with the Fiorina campaign.
Today we also learn that Barbara Boxer who heads the Senate Ethics Committee has failed to disclose real property valued at over $1M she owns on her ethics report from 2002 - 2010. As head of Ethics, leaving off this house would bring into question WHY? She knows better but did it anyway.

After reading this and other items showing lack of ethics and transparency of candidates, the Senate needs new Ethics Rules. Anyone with a complaint against them should not be Chairing or even be on the Ethics Committee. Think it is time for full disclosure of anyone running for office including incumbents. Also the idea that someone can 'loan' their campaign money needs looked at as well because it puts millionaire's running for office on a different playing field.

It is past time to replace one of the more annoying Senators Barbara Boxer and her liberal agenda with a Senator who will listen to the people, Carley Fiorina.

BREAKING: Ethics Foundation Requests A.G. Holder Investigate Sen. BoxerOctober 26, 2010 - by Roger L Simon

In a breaking development that may affect the close California Senate race, Pajamas Media has learned The Foundation for Ethics in Public Service sent a letter to Eric Holder last Thursday requesting the attorney general “begin an investigation to determine whether United States Senator Barbara Boxer violated any criminal laws or should be liable for any civil penalty for failure to disclose real property on her Personal Financial Disclosure Reports between 2002 and 2010.”

The Foundation for Ethics in Public Service is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization “that seeks to bring a new level of transparency, accountability and integrity to all levels of government in the United States.” Boxer is the chair of the Senate Select Committee on Ethics.

The specific property FEPS is referring to is an Oakland, California, home valued at over a million dollars and co-owned by Boxer, her husband Stewart, their son Douglas, and his wife Amy. The letter to Holder reads in part:

Despite the fact that Senator Boxer had an ownership in 854 Longridge Road [in Oakland], she failed to report this substantial real property asset on any of her personal financial disclosures between 2002 and 2010. She had also failed to report the mortgage on the property. Further, she failed to report the purchase of 854 Longridge Road in 2002. Each year Boxer was required to have filed a “full and complete report.”

The filing of false or incomplete disclosure statements is in violation of the Ethics in Government Act. The Act authorizes the Attorney General of the United States to seek civil penalties against Senators who knowingly and willfully falsify or fail to report required information. The knowing and willful concealment of the existence of substantial amount of real property for a prolonged period may subject Senators to federal criminal prosecution under 18 U.S.C. paragraph 101. [other citations are available at the link]

The Oakland home is currently lived in by Douglas and his wife. This is not the first time Senator Boxer’s son has been the center of controversy. The senator reportedly paid out nearly $500,000 from her campaign contributions to her son’s public relations firm between 2001 and 2009. Those moneys could have been used to pay off the mortgage on the Oakland property, adding urgency to the DOJ investigation sought by The Foundation for Ethics in Public Service and further complicating the legal and ethical issues involved.
