$49.99

If you are an ADA and want to help Judge Mike Anderson's name, but don't want to end up on the Lykos/Palmer/Hooper enemies list, there is a compromise solution for you.

As noted in the comments of my last post, only donations to a political campaign of $50.00 or more have to be reported by the campaign.  So, if you'd like to help, but not get your name on the list (of those that Hooper is now claiming should be "bayonetted on the battlefield"), simply donate $49.99.  You can write a check or do it online by clicking here.

I know of at least two people who have already donated that exact amount, and I hope you will too.  It isn't that much money in the big scheme of things, and just think how crazy it will make Lykos to know she can't discover and punish her enemies from within the office.

Send a message.  Send $49.99.

$50.00 aggregate in the same reporting period will get your name published on a finance report.

I've worked for Her Majesty for almost four years, and she doesn't know my name. The only reason Queeg would care about my name is this list. She certainly doesn't know my mother in law's name...

Can I contribute another $49.99 and stay under the Lykos radar once Mike officially files his campaign finance report that is due today? I assume it Is a different reporting period?

I don't believe that you can donate more than once and fly below the radar. It is based on cumulative donations.

The good news is that I heard over 30 people have donated in the exact amount of $49.99.

That's the start of a good message.

You can if it's in different reporting periods. But you don't have that much time.

However, cash donations aren't always cataloged by name. If there's a couple of $20.00's on a table at their campaign event, with no name on it, that gets reported as cash with no name. If there just so happened to be another couple of $20.00's next to that, they are treated the same. Same for the next couple of $20.00's...

You get the idea. There are lots of ways around campaign finance laws.

And don't say I never did anything for you--be sure to call Anderson's campaign office to confirm that they are not reporting the names of donors who gave $49.99. Just because they don't HAVE to report it doesn't mean some anal-retentive bean counter at their office won't.
