WHO IS JANINE DEROSE?
Janine DeRose, AKA Janine Kloss, describes herself as a Colleague with The Morning Star Co (Foundation for Harmony & Prosperity), Executive Director for the Libertarian Party of Sacramento and Chairman and CEO for Vote LP Today.
In April 2013 Janine Kloss, AKA Janine DeRose, unsuccessfully challenged 3-term California Libertarian Party Chairman Kevin Takenaga for his position at California’s convention. At the time she held the position of Secretary for the California Libertarian Party and was recently elected Chairperson of Sacramento County.
One month later, May 15, 2013, DeRose of the California Libertarian Party, a relative newcomer, was allowed to speak before the California Assembly about AB351. Yes, DeRose’s relationship with SB277 Referendum fraudster Tim Donnelly pre-dated her Team Sacramento “leadership” role in the SB277 Referendum scam.

Janine DeRose, AKA Janine Kloss, may describe herself as a Colleague with The Morning Star Co (Foundation for Harmony & Prosperity), Executive Director for the Libertarian Party of Sacramento and Chairman and CEO for Vote LP Today but are LIV voters familiar with The Morning Star Co, Foundation for Harmony & Prosperity and the Libertarian Party of Sacramento? Of course not.
If you ‘follow the money’ it does become rather interesting.
Do you remember the $4,200 ‘Contribution’ DeRose’s 2016 District 7 Assembly campaign received from “AGRICULTURALIST” Chris Rufer? Did you notice the donation was made 11 days before the 2016 June 7th Primary?
Did you know $2,758.77 of Rufer’s $4,200 donation was ultimately returned?
Did you know Chris Rufer is the only donor Janine DeRose and Tim Donnelly have in common?
Ladies and gentleman, Chris Rufer is a registered Libertarian, funder of the Sacramento Libertarian Party and the founder and owner of a successful Woodland tomato processor called The Morning Star Co. Yes, the same Morning Star Co. for which DeRose is a “Colleague.”
According to the company’s website, “The Morning Star Company, and its affiliates, operate three tomato processing facilities in Central California, processing 25% to 30% of the California crop, plus tomato transplanting, farming, harvesting and trucking operations. Employment is approximately 350 year-round and over 2,000 seasonal colleagues with annual sales exceeding $900 million.”
Rufer is also the founder of the Foundation for Harmony and Prosperity. A nonprofit expousing libertarian ideas. Rufer rents a suite of 20th-floor offices at 500 Capitol Mall. (DeRose’s “office”)
Rufer, a donor in the powerful network led by billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch made the largest super-PAC donation in Libertarian Party history with his pledge to spend more than $1 million backing presidential nominee Gary “FORCED VACCINATION” Johnson.
Did you know Chris Rufer gave $500,000+ to AlternativePAC, a pro-Johnson group?
Rufer also gave $490,000 to a Utah PAC that supported the Libertarian Party’s presidential candidate, Gary Johnson in 2012.
Chris & Melodie Rufer are Tim Donnelly’s 5th and 6th TOP DONORS.
