Controlled Opposition is the term used to describe “leaders” who arrive on the scene almost out of nowhere. A Controlled Opposition can be identified by means of it’s techniques and/or results. Did you know the Pan Recall Committee hired attorney Max Kanin? Max Kanin is the former ‘Campaign Counsel’ for SB277 co-author Ben Allen. Hiring the former ‘Campaign Counsel’ for SB277 co-author Ben Allen is an interesting technique to say the least.
The decision to hire pro-vaccine attorney Max Kanin, former ‘Campaign Counsel’ for SB277 co-author Ben Allen was clearly not governed by or according to reason. The fact that Pan Recall Committee members are attempting to justify their actions in various Facebook groups is as sad as it is pathetic. Why? The most obvious reason being there was no need to hire an attorney in the first place. Why? Because the Secretary of State ALREADY approved their petition shortly after the recall was launched on May 28, 2015. From the SOS website: “Within 160… days from the time the Secretary of State notifies the proponents that the form and wording of the petition is correct, proponents must file a petition with the requisite number of valid signatures.” (Cal. Const., Art. II, Sec. 14(a))
If there was anything wrong with the Pan Recall petition that circulated from June 2015-December 2015 the Secretary of State would never have approved the petition for circulation. DURP! There was no need to hire an attorney at all let alone Max Kanin, former ‘Campaign Counsel’ for SB277 co-author Ben Allen. Additionally, the recall petition format prepared by the Secretary of State is mandatory and must be used. (Elections Code §§ 11041, 11043.5) The instructions for a properly formatted petition are publicly available on the Secretary of State’s website.
Pan Recall “Leadership” has trotted out a range of excuses for months and months, none of which hold much water especially if one considers the fact former ‘Campaign Counsel’ for SB277 co-author Ben Allen believes those with anti-vaccine ideals are clowns.
Please SIGN and SHARE the petition calling for an investigation into the Pan Recall Committee (FPPC ID #1377741), a recall addled with violations of the Political Reform Act, FPPC Regulations and the California Elections Code. Katherine O’Neal Duran, who lead this EPIC failure publicly admitted on November 18th, “My ultimate goal was not to recall.”(see video below) An amazing public admission to say the least. The misrepresentation and fraud committed clearly deserves to be investigated. SHARE the petition with friends, family and other supporters as it helps build momentum. Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert needs to know you aren’t OK with violations of the Political Reform Act, violations of FPPC Regulations and violations of the California Elections Code.
