Sick Joke Part 2

An update on my previous post about Tim Fasano's candidacy. He has not filed to run for the district 11 seat. That means he is breaking the law by having a campaign website. Good work, Tim. Below is a list of candidates that have filed.

Update: Jim Johnson has an interesting comment about election laws.


Michael... Florida campaign finance law does not apply to federal offices. He can spend money without officially filing with the Federal Elections Commission, until he spends $5,000 at which time he has to file.


The interesting question would be how much Fasano has spent? Properly not much. Fasano will have to pay $5,000 to officially declare his candidacy.

Another question is does he really believe that he can raise more money than Kathy Castor. She raised $1,373,273 for the 2006 election. Much of it she gave to other Congressional candidates. She crushed her opponents in the primary and general election.

Fasano posts this rant on his campaign web site.


I will be running for Congress Of the 11th District in 2008. I am a Republican and unlike Jim Davis, the former Congress Person who Kathy had no political difference with, there are profound differences with Kathy Castor and myself. The differences are staggering and her positions are clearly a danger to the welfare, safety and security of our community, as well as, our nation. Her "Extreme" liberal agenda is unknown to most residents of Tampa. I will, however, expose her.


Good God. He sounds like Michael Savage.

If you want a good laugh, check out the campaign site guestbook.

Buddy, not only are you a lunatic, but you're a lunatic who will get worked by Kathy Castor on Election Day. Keep crazying around, but when all is said and done, you'll be back in the cab where you clearly belong.


This campaign comes across as a desperate cry for attention.

Update: Here is the text of the law.


If you are running for the U.S. House, Senate or the Presidency, you must register with the FEC once you (or persons acting on your behalf) receive contributions or make expenditures in excess of $5,000. Within 15 days of reaching that $5,000 threshold, you must file a Statement of Candidacy (FEC Form 2 [PDF]) authorizing a principal campaign committee to raise and spend funds on your behalf. Within 10 days of that filing, your principal campaign committee must submit a Statement of Organization (FEC Form 1 [PDF]). Your campaign will thereafter report its receipts and disbursements on a regular basis. Campaigns should download the Campaign Guide for Congressional Candidates [PDF] for more information on the laws that apply to them.

Maybe he'll move to bartow and run against opie. THAT would be jawsome.

Jim, I'm sure the Fasano campaign could use your help. I dare you to officially work on the campaign.

Interesting. Fasano has a habit of misspelling my last name the same way.

did he call me poopuli/? luckily I will attribute this to his overall poor spelling and lack of grasp on ..... stuff.

Vox, the guy brags about getting a good write up from Tommy Duncan. Even I got a good write up from TD. It's not hard to get King Stick to say something nice about a blogger. That's how King Stick gets links. Some call it networking. Others call it ass kissing.

I love that the Republicans are fielding a porn cabdriver and a black guy. There's nothing the GOP loves more than pornograhers and people of ethnicity.
