Jon Stainbrook

Jon Stainbrook is a cancer on any organization he is a part of

One thing that is a highlight of Jon Stainbrook, is that he is known to destroy anything he touches. For example, the Lucas County Republican Party has never been in worse shape, the Board of Elections is a laughing stock and full of problems.

Jon Stainbrook effectively removed from Board of Elections

When the Secretary of State can no longer trust anyone, he has to appoint two judges to do the job of the Board of Elections.

====

Secretary of State Jon Husted notified the Lucas County Board of Elections (BOE) May 20 of the selection of two former judges to provide bipartisan oversight for the certification of the recent primary election.

Judge Peter Handwork and Judge Charles Wittenberg will work with the BOE on the certification of the May 6 primary and the Toledo City Council District 2 special election results.

husted announces next step for boe

Jon Husted appointed former judges, Peter Handwork and Charles Wittenberg, to oversee the Lucas County Board of Elections. Does that sound like a solution?

What are these two to "oversee"--the incompetency and dysfunction of the BOE? The people who are supposed to be doing their jobs, but aren't?

It seems like this is the typical political "fix" for a situation--assign additional people or form a committee to correct what the other committee did wrong.

Using a term that became popular during the Iraq War, what's the exit strategy for these judges? Are we forgetting about forcing Stainbrook, Kaczala, DeGidio, and Rothenbuhler to resign?

what's taking Jon Husted so long?

Is there anything more frustrating than government inertia? Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted has made it well-known that the Lucas County Board of Elections has taken up more of his time than all of the other counties combined. He's put together a special investigative committee and has asked for the resignations of election board members and employees (most of whom haven't complied)--and still there's no final resolution.

Interestingly, one of the members of Husted's special committee is the very person who refused to place Jon Stainbrook on the BOE back in early 2010--former Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner. Stainbrook's like a bad penny for her.

If you recall, there were two factions of the Republican Party in Lucas County in those days--the Stainbrook faction and the Jeffrey Simpson faction. As seems to be the norm, the Ohio Republican Party couldn't get its act together to decide which of these factions was "official." So each submitted a nominee for the Lucas County BOE and Brunner rejected them both and made her own appointment (Mr. Husted--hint, hint).

Jon Stainbrook begs for job at Lucas County Board of Elections

The cancer is on the fence:

TOLEDO -- Four ousted members of the Lucas County Board of Elections are fighting for their jobs before state officials Thursday.

Last week, after a four-week investigation into "dysfunction" at the board of elections, a state transparency committee recommended to Secretary of State John Husted that board members Tony DeGidio, Ron Rothenbuhler, and Jon Stainbrook be replaced, along with Director Gina Kaczala and Deputy Director Dan DeAngelis

Jon Husted recommends removing Jon Stainbrook from board of elections

After voters picked Bill Delany over Jon Stainbrook, now the transparency committee recommends that Jon Stainbrook be fired. Looks like everyone is finally coming to senses that Jon is not very good at anything and is a cancer to any organization he associates himself with. It is nice that all of the bad things he has done is now coming back to haunt him.

A transparency committee appointed by Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted recommended May 9 that three of the four Lucas County Board of Elections (BOE) members be fired along with the board’s director and deputy director.

Election Results and General Brouhaha - May, 2014

But mainly general brouhaha. Here's the latest, courtesy of the local bird cage liner:
From The Blade:Primary Election Results Delayed in Lucas County

The primary election results were delayed well past midnight today partially because of the missing cards, but Elections Director Gina Kaczala said "we have other problems."

Yeah, they've got problems alright. Here's the source of the problems.

Great news: Bill Delaney beating John Stainbrook for State Central Committee

Jon seems to be on the outs - the great news is that at 11:30 pm, Bill Delaney is beating Jon Stainbrook by almost 20% with 75% of the precincts reporting. Looks like Jon's chickens have come back to roost. Thank you voters and thank you Bill Delaney!

Lucas County Board of Elections - Board Meeting

The full 30 minutes of the Lucas County Board of Elections meeting where John Stainbrook placed in a limbo status pending an investigation of an allegation he texted a message to someone in the warehouse to work slowly and not report errors.

Stainbrook focus of criminal investigation

With an election only five days away, three members of the Lucas County Board of Elections voted Thursday to launch an investigation against the fourth member over an allegation that he sent a text to a board employee encouraging him to drag out preparations for the election.

Non-existent address on Stainbrook voter registration raises too many questions

When it comes to getting your address correct, you'd think most people would be pretty good at it.

Admittedly, there are some people who are dyslexic and might have trouble writing down their own address, but they at least know what it is and take steps to make sure they are accurate when communicating it.

Apparently, that's not the case with Robert C. Stainbrook II and the forms that have been submitted to the Board of Elections in his name.

Jon Husted Condemns Board of Elections

After an inquiry to WTOL I was able to obtain a link the the 13 April Leading Edge featuring Jon Husted talking about the Transparency Committee at the Board of Elections.

His remarks were stern and to the point. I submit;

"We spend more time and resources helping to manage the Lucas county board of
elections from Columbus than we spend collectively on the other 87 counties in the
state combined. It is become a burden on the elections systems in Ohio and it
needs to be fixed and we need to fix it quickly." - Jon Husted

138 of Stainbrook Central Committee candidates request absentee ballots

Absentee ballots are being requested by Stainbrook/Gallagher Central Committee candidates in unprecedented numbers.

http://toledoteaparty.com/138-of-stainbrook-central-committee-candidates...

Many of these candidates are also first time voters. Stainbrook not only collected the 5 signatures to get these candidates on the ballot, he also submitted their voter registration cards, signing them up as new voters.

Aren’t the Central Committee people supposed to be the “Mr or Mrs Republican” in their neighborhoods?

Stainbrook gets in a verbal nasty altercation with local conservatives

Lucas County Chairman Jon Stainbrook showed his true colors over the weekend in an altercation between myself, him and his opponent Bill Delaney for State Central Committee and County Chairman of the GOP.

Stainbrook / Gallagher submitted 274 Central Committee petitions, none of the candidates collected their own signatures

Stainbrook / Gallagher submitted 274 Central Committee petitions, none of the candidates collected their own signatures

Did Stainbrook and Gallagher recruit candidates whose only job is to vote for them at the next re-organization meeting?

Or, did they recruit Republican go-getters who will take on the job of a Central Committee members, working in their neighborhoods to build a strong foundation for the future of the party.

How to rig an election through the Board of Elections.

"Did Gallaghers actions stop challenges and write-ins against Stainbrook candidates?"

The petitions were withheld from a timely release in order to avoid the usual public scrutiny. Meghan Gallagher sat on the books instead of releasing information in a timely manner in order to keep the Republican write ins and other Candidates on the ballot for May's primary elections.

Read it here! You'll not see this in the daily local!

The Obama Eligibility Case & A Few Good Judges

In today's legal world, where few judges have the courage to do what needs to be done to restore the nation to justice, there comes a few rays of light. As someone who has fought the legal and government establishment for decades (see my autobiography, "Whores: Why and How I Came to Fight the Establishment"), many incorrectly see me as cynical and jaded when it comes to our public servants.

Stainbrook stacks up with Noe, Perz and Reichert: He gets rated the worst for donations to the party

Jon marketed himself as someone who would revolutionize the Republican Party in Lucas County, but Bill Delany reviewed the data and found out he comes in last for donations-in-kind. I am sure that is not the only stat that Jon comes in last if he is compared to previous chairs.
============
Lucas County GOP in-kind contributions drops to $0.00 under Jon Stainbrooks leadership!

The Republican Party relies on many sources of revenue, materials, and services in order to operate efficiently. To support the party, businesses and individuals often provide services or materials that directly benefit the Party, yet no money changes hands. These types of donations are referred to as an “In Kind” donation and fill a major portion of the party's budgeting and operating needs.

Audio from Lucas County BOE meeting where Gallagher was fired

Got this tip from the Toledo Tea Party Web site:
=======

We know many people were not able to attend this historic meeting, but are curious about the reports they have heard from the meeting. This is the audio from the March 4th, 2014 Lucas BOE meeting in which Director Gallagher was fired, and Gina Kaczala was appointed as new Director. Notes below....
