      Subject: is any “public record” also a state record? 18 USC section 2075

      To: F.B.I., Jim Condos,Kathy Scheele, Will Senning, Governor Peter Shumlin:

      Question of whether federal law applies to state records?

      HOW CAN THE U.S. MARIJUANA PARTY
      CANDIDATE, Cris Ericson,
      PROVE that she has a legal
      right to ask for and accept out-of-state campaign
      donations, or to be promoted by SuperPACs,
      while the Elections Division is still refusing
      to list the independent and minor party
      candidates?

      Isn’t this fraudulent concealment,
      compounded day after day,
      of material facts, affecting the potential interstate
      “commerce” of campaign fundraising which
      can create seasonal employment
      and an influx of advertising dollars
      in Vermont?

      Is “any public record” also a state record,
      under 18 USC Section 101 Records & Reports;
      18 USC Section 1701 Concealment;
      18 USC 2075 Officers failing to make reports –
      considering that
      Cris Ericson is a candidate for Governor and
      for United States Senator?

      The Vermont Statutes Online
      Title 1: General Provisions
      Chapter 5: COMMON LAW; GENERAL RIGHTS
      1 V.S.A. § 315. Statement of policy
      … free and open examination of records
      consistent with Chapter I, Article 6
      of the Vermont Constitution.

      Is VT Secretary of State,
      Jim Condos, violating the Spirit of the Law,
      because Cris Ericson filed her candidate petitions
      May 29, 2012 and received a telephone call from
      the Elections Division July 1 stating her petitions
      were verified, (but no letter in the mail)
      but his office is threatening
      to withhold this information until the “week of
      July 1″ which could actually be over 30 days,
      and inconsistent with “open records”?

      She obviously knew exactly what he was talking about, but refused to answer truthfully, or else she’s grossly incompetent and stupid.

      How does someone like this choose to embrace lies? Is it the money? Is it the power? Is it the black leather gear and shiny guns?

    8. Good for you, Mr. Cohen .You must have God on your side & Ms. Leonhart….the devil hiding all her lies . In fact, she was stumbling, mumbling, avoiding questions . She acted like such a fool it was pathetic .

    9. The green says:

      Thanks, Mr. Cohen for simply stating the facts . She reminded me of a scared dog running away with her tail between her legs .She is pitiful . She can’t avoid the facts forever . We will win this senselesness .
