Lizbeth Benacquisto In Her Own Words: Why She Should Be the Next Congresswoman to Replace Trey Radel

benacquisto

By Isabel Matos

Curt Clawson has been paying for positive media coverage and the creation of an image of him as being an “outsider” for months now.  He has been the best candidate money could buy. Every single page on that blog has a Clawson ad above it but that is not news. This poll was released just days ago. It is narrow enough that she can win and much different from the one taken a month ago, March 3rd, before Sarah’s endorsement. Anything can happen in this primary and there are others to talk about, so I will wait until after the primary to say what is wrong with this picture (sort of). I cannot hold back.

I do want to show the clip below from News-Press (generously converted by iizthatiiz) where Lizbeth explains why she is running for Congress to replace Trey Radel who was arrested on cocaine possession charges and resigned from office in January this year. Her rationale, temperament, level-headedness, and genuine advocacy for innocent life and traditional marriage are to be commended.  You can also see how much she cares about representing her constituents well and coming  to this country’s aid at a time where all the qualities needed to be part of the solution – she has.

There is NO excuse in my mind for voters in this district NOT to vote for her. None. And because I am a Rino watch dog and activist against the GOPe, I found it interesting that the Tea Party Express and Rand Paul endorsed the non-Palin candidate and non-Tea Party candidate who admittedly never went to a single Tea Party event in 2009 when it surged. Since when is  Rand Paul a sought-after endorsement these days? Some were too happy to announce it. No surprise. The coverage and slams of Sarah Palin have been unethical as I have mentioned already because they have been paid for. That’s how Rinos roll.

I hope everyone in District 19 reads every word of the article by News Press and hears every she has to say. All eyes are on you! Don’t believe the HYPE or ADS! Read (the truth) instead and GOTV April 22nd to support Lizbeth!

THE TRUTH about LIZBETH BENACQUISTO

News-Press.com writes:

Lizbeth Benacquisto was once told by her mom that it was OK not to be perfect, life does not allow for such things. When life had presented Benacquisto with challenges, her mom said there was nothing wrong with starting over and building again.

The Fort Myers Republican keeps those words close to her heart and in many ways has lived by them. It is because of those convictions set by her mother, her own beliefs in helping others and a genuine dedication in wanting to serve the people of Southwest Florida that The News-Press endorses her for the U.S. House of Representatives seat in the 19th District, which includes Lee County and parts of Collier.

We believe she has the best chance of restoring trust to a seat and to a community, which was left angry and betrayed when former Rep. Trey Radel was arrested for cocaine possession, announced he was an alcoholic, and resigned from office. The district has been without representation in Washington since January.

The current campaign, which also includes Curt Clawson, Michael Dreikorn and Paige Kreegel, for the Republican nomination, has done very little to dissipate that anger. It has been one of the ugliest in Southwest Florida memory. It has been a campaign of distorted facts, accusations and name-calling. The campaign has left many of us wondering whether we should trust any of the Republicans based on the ruthless tactics of the candidates.We had hoped this would be a campaign about the issues and how any one of them could represent our interests and money with integrity and leadership. Instead, we got verbal brutality.

We wish Benacquisto had not been part of this and urge her to stop the negative ads and to spend the last days of the campaign focused on her own strengths and what she will do in Washington.

We believe that Benacquisto understands the political process, gets things done in the trenches and can better care for Southwest Florida. She has proven this in the Florida Senate, especially the last two years as majority leader. She has the ability to get people to work together, even if it meant she would let them take the credit. She has done it on the Senate floor, as vice chairwoman of the Appropriations Committee and in Southwest Florida with local leaders.

She has done it by working both sides of the aisle. That was evident last year when she accepted the challenge of passing the “Cancer Treatment Fairness Act.” It was a bill that struggled to get Senate support the previous two years. “I worked really hard, amassed a coalition of colleagues that understood that working to deny access to medication for folks battling cancer because it was cost prohibitive” was wrong, Benacquisto said. The legislative session was extended twice, but Benacquisto got the votes and it was signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott.

It’s tough to explain Benacquisto’s quick rise in the Senate for someone who just stepped into state politics about four years ago. She made it a priority to work with Senate colleagues on important bills and that brought her recognition. “In my first session, I was able to pass an extraordinary amount of bills. In any chamber, you build a coalition and move forward with good policy that is in the best interest of the people you serve. I have bucked the system, built coalitions around a conservative ideal and convinced folks why policy is sound,” she said.

She may be too idealistic when it comes to the Affordable Care Act. She, like most Republicans, wants to repeal the entire law. We do not believe that is possible, not with more than 7 million people already signed up and expecting health care. She considers the repeal her top priority should she get to Washington. We advise her to work with her colleagues on strategic reform of the program. She wants people to be able to sign up for health care programs in other states. She wants people to have access to tax credits similar to those available to businesses. Those are notable positions and ones worthy of continued dialogue and possible action in Washington.

She has been a strong supporter for improved and sustained water quality in Florida, leading efforts to provide $220 million in funding for Indian River Lagoon and Caloosahatchee basin projects, as well as storage areas for contaminated water flowing from Lake Okeechobee into our local estuaries. She wants a new release schedule of water from Lake O to help minimize the damage to the Caloosahatchee. It will be important for her to continue that fight in Washington, securing additional federal funding that could one day lead to the restoration of a natural flow way from Lake O south to the Everglades.

We agree with her position on flood insurance that more private insurers should be brought into the marketplace to help reduce costs and there should be more accountability on government and its hiring practices for companies that review and change flood maps. As another round of flood map revisions moves forward, we urge Benacquisto to take the lead on pushing for government transparency for these contracts that are costing taxpayers billions.

We share Benacquisto’s stance on more diversity on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives. Currently, there are only 85 women among the 435 representatives, and 19 Republican woman.

We can’t afford another mistake in representation for this district. There is too much work to be done as the nation moves forward with massive health care changes, new education policies, immigration reform and lowering the budget deficit. We believe Benacquisto can represent our interests in those areas effectively.

Scam Alert: Sarah’s Not Running for Senate, so DO NOT DONATE to Dan Backer’s Tea Party Leadership Fund

draft sarah scam!!

By Isabel Matos

Sarah is NOT running for Senate!

Yet another article by Lee Stranahan warning unsuspecting Tea Party Americans who make donations in good faith to Tea Party Organizations that a scam is being perpetrated by the Tea Party Leadership Fund. Dan Backer strikes again. This is not new. I published how the funds got intercepted by Backer and eventually ended up in Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn’s campaigns here. Backer is a despicable liar and a cheat who needs to be exposed. Pass this along to your friends and/or anyone you know on or off Facebook. None of this should be taking place. What bothers me about this entire scenario is that RINOS end up enriching themselves off of the very people who want them voted out of power because RINOS want to see them crushed. It’s beyond bothersome. It’s infuriating!

For weeks, I’ve been reporting on how TheTeaParty.net Leadership Fund uses ‘petitions’ and ‘Draft’ schemes as a way to make money and build big mailing lists.

Today, Backer and the TPLF are at it again.

A new email about ‘Draft Sarah Palin’ is a humdinger, with copy written to separate well-meaning patriots from their money, including saying in bold ”you can be a tangible part of saving our nation from slipping into the vast sea of liberal socialism.”

How does sending money to Dan Backer and TheTeaParty.net Leadership Fund accomplish that? It DOESN’T.

Palin isn’t running. She isn’t going to run. And IF she ran, she has a HUGE war chest.

So giving money to the group wont do a thing to stop the sea of liberal socialism but it will make money for TheTea Party.Net Leadership Fund.

Here’s the email in its entirety. Stranahan wants you to see how manipulative it is:

Friend,
Sarah called it!

Obama led the way for Putin’s Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Even before he took the oath of office, Sarah Palin warned us about the disasters to come under Obama’s terrible leadership.

“After the Russian Army invaded the nation of Georgia, Senator Obama’s reaction was one of indecision and moral equivalence, the kind of response that would only encourage Russia’s Putin to invade Ukraine next.” – Sarah Palin, 2008

AND Palin was right…when Obama did nothing, Russia took what they wanted. This proves Obama is nothing more than a weak homeland bully — attacking American citizens and watching freedom around the world burn.

Sarah Palin is the conservative leader we need in the U.S. Senate, NOW. 

But her window to commit to this race has almost closed, and that’s why I need you to respond to this request IMMEDIATELY. We need your help to gather the signatures necessary to push Sarah Palin over the top in a critical run for Alaska’s Senate seat in 2014.

CLICK HERE to sign your Draft Sarah Palin petition.

Incumbent liberal Democrat Mark Begich is terrified of an Obama vist to Alaska, because he knows the American people are awakening.

Sarah’s the proven leader we need. She has a better grasp on world politics, and she knows what it means to cherish and protect our American freedoms far better than THE MAN WHO IS SUPPOSED TO BE LEADING THE FREE WORLD.

Last I checked, Mark Begich has spent too much time in Washington D.C. begging the Obama administration for favors rather than representing the good people of Alaska. Send Sarah to replace Begich and stop Obama!

Senator Sarah Palin, this is the name we need to put an end to Barack Obama and Harry Reid’s reign of liberal terror.

The United States Senate rests just outside conservative control, and by electing more Tea Party Heroes to replace the establishment cronies from either party – you can be a tangible part of saving our nation from slipping into the vast sea of liberal socialism.

Now more than ever, we need another Tea Party Hero in the Senate to halt Harry Reid and his pals in their war against our Constitution on issues like amnesty and gun control and our nation’s crushing debt. With Sarah in the Senate, conservatives across America will rest easier at night knowing she’s at the watch.

I need your renewed support today by signing the Tea Party Leadership Fund’s petition to draft Sarah Palin to the U.S. Senate – and I need you to chip in $5 or more to get Sarah’s name on the ballot.

Sarah is the proven Maverick who’s stood up to the special interests in Alaska and has been a tireless advocate for our Tea Party values ever since she hit the national stage.

Sign your name to the petition right now, and make a donation of $5 or more to convince her we’re serious.

Sincerely,

Dan Backer
Tea Party Organizer

P.S. We worked hard to get her attention — now let’s seal the deal. By signing our renewed petition, you make a bold statement — you’re tired of the wishy-washy sellout establishment shills and you’re ready to put a real leader in the Senate next to Ted Cruz and Rand Paul. Follow this link, sign your name to our petition, and help us show Sarah Palin the Tea Party Leadership Fund has her back!

Ground Zero Mosque Will Not Be Built.

NY-Skyline-911-Reuters

by AWR HAWKINS Breitbart News

The Ground Zero Mosque, which caused such a stir in 2010 because of its close proximity to the very spot where Americans were attacked by Islamists on 9/11, is being demolished.

And the person demolishing it is the same person who argued for its existence–Sharif El-Gamel.

According to Yahoo News, El-Gamel is a real estate developer who discovered there was no money to be made via the Ground Zero Mosque. He said the project suffered from “a lack of financial support from the Muslim community.”

A consultant who works closely with El-Gamel said the developer simply “couldn’t raise the funds” without help from the Muslim community.

Besides the lack of money, a piece of one of the planes that hit the WTC towers was recently discovered on the property on which the mosque was being built. These both contribute to a situation in which El-Gamel “seems to be in such a rush to do the job that he has filed for the permits [to demolish] before he actually becomes the…owner” of the building.”

Governor Palin Discusses Obama, the Constitution, Hillary and Much More on Cashin In Today with Eric Bolling

psa1

 by Isabel Matos

Sarah Palin dropped by Eric Bolling’s Cashin’ In Freedom Summit today.

Video courtesy of SarahNet

Eric Bollling:  Governor, our freedom and liberty are under siege, the amendments specifically, how do we fight back?

Governor Palin: On a national level we make sure that we’re electing candidates who will promise to pay whatever price it’s going to take to protect our Constitution.  Then on a state level I think it’s very important that we need find candidates and elect them who would be willing to call for a convention of states if need be because that is the tool the people have to reign in government.

Sarah Palin agreed with Rand Paul that the first amendment is the most at risk:  It starts there. If we’re not able to express the will of the people then government will take over or continue doing what it’s doing today.

Governor Palin: The problem we have today start at the top. We have a president who does not understand or just chooses to disrespect our constitution, those rights, the rule of law, the separation of powers.. all those things we learned in elementary school about how our nation was formed and why it is the most exceptional nation on the Earth because of that constitution. Our president has set a tone in this nation that kind of says, eh, you know, it will be a select, elitist crew of guys that is going to run the show instead of We-the-People.

psa0

Eric Bolling:  Governor, you have said Hillary should run in 2016.  Why do we really need another Bush or Clinton in the White House?

Governor Palin:  I said it’s fine if she ran, I didn’t say it’s fine if she won. We don’t need more of the blue bloods. No. We need new energy. We need new people in there who understand what the constitution has done to create this great country, not those who would choose to seek constitutional changes, amendments that were not the will of the people, that they would amend themselves by not seizing power from the people. So no, we need new people in there.

*****

Eric Bolling:  We found out this week the Reverend Al Sharpton was at one point an FBI informant. Your impressions as to why he did that. He’s been a very vocal critic of yours. Your thoughts on the reverend, hero or hypocrite?

Governor Palin: There are so many reasons to look at Al Sharpton and not be impressed. This is just one of those. He’s been a critic of just the average patriotic American, not just me – the average American who understands what it takes to get the country back on the right track. He’s not one to help get the country back on the right track.

*****

Governor Palin discusses Jon Stewart and Sarah Palin doing a PSA:  Our efforts are to help our troops, the wounded warriors returning from the war zone and needing mentor-ship and employment.  There are so many trained, equipped troops returning home and we want to make sure that they’re getting a great shot, a fair shot at getting a good sustainable job. It’s tough to do in this economy when 18-20 million are seeking employment and can’t find it because of the economic condition we’re in. Whatever we can do to help those troops. It is our military who have paid the price to allow us to be free. How dare their sacrifice and their efforts be in vain. Part of that is sustainable good employment and future for their families.

More screen grabs to brighten and/or end the day with a positive message that Sarah always delivers.psa 1psa 2psa 3.

From Defending Jeb’s “Act of Love” to a Beer Summit with Chris Christie ~ Rand Paul Sure Is Schmoozing Our Enemies

Jeb Bush defends his remarks about illegality being an act of love. That’s not news to us that he would make a headline over yet another stupid remark: 

BUT DONT BLAME ME IF I share that Rand Paul defends him

Or that he wants a Beer Summit with Chris Christie (first 35 seconds of the clip)

Scandal in Florida Race Exposed. Some Keeping Quiet About It. Wonder Why?

lizbeth vs clawson

by Isabel Matos

Curt Clawson has hired a record 25 consultants for his campaign. It’s a lie that he’s an outsider. He’s not a principled Conservative either, something those supporting him claim he is. Just recently Breitbart News contributor Javier Manjarres of Shark Tank wrote a hit piece on Sarah, criticizing her for choosing the wrong Conservative in the race: Sarah Palin Jumps the Gun May Not Have Fully Vetted Recent Endorsee. That is ironic coming from a RINO-infested tank who shilled for Marco Rubio when he was lying about being against amnesty early on. Where was his research and vetting then? Shark Tank helped Rubio lie to us from the start. Even more ironic is the fact that Manjarres can conduct background checks on anyone he wants but did not bother to vet Clawson or expose his ties with known pedophile, Glen Borst-that we know of, has he?

palin (belt) Don’t go there, buddy. Here’s the truth.

PALIN ON SCANDAL-RIDDEN FL-19: LIZBETH BENACQUISTO WILL ‘OUST STATUS QUO’

Excerpt from article by Kevin Scholla and Tony Lee 4/11/2014. Breitbart News.

Appearing at a cookout for her campaign last week, Palin said Benacquisto was the best politician to “oust the status quo” while calling her a “Mama Grizzly who will stand up to protect the next generation.” Palin warned against politicians who will not do enough to prevent the country from being “fundamentally transformed and not restored.”

The Republican primary is April 22 and will include Benacquisto, Curt Clawson, Paige Kreegel and Michael Dreikorn. The winner of that race will face Democrat April Freeman and Libertarian Ray Netherwood on June 24 in the general election.

“On the national stage, there is no greater voice for principled conservatism and the spirit of the Founders than Governor Sarah Palin,” Benacquisto told Breitbart News. “To have the support of Sarah, someone so dedicated to getting this nation back on the path to prosperity, is a tremendous honor.”

She added that she was proud to “have the recognition of Sarah and grateful that patriots in this congressional district know they have a conservative they can trust.”

When she endorsed Benacquisto, Palin, first and foremost, called her the only conservative in the race and also said that her candidacy comes with an added bonus: it helps Republicans blunt the phony “war on women” rhetoric Democrats like to gin up around election time.

Palin also said that “Lizbeth is running against a wealthy self-funded candidate with lots of splashy campaign ads claiming to be a conservative.”

“Since when do conservatives stand for crony capitalism and government bailouts? Please do your homework, voters,” she added. “Look beyond the fancy anonymous campaign ads. Look at a candidate’s record, not just their rhetoric. Lizbeth is a genuine conservative with a track record to prove it.”

As Breitbart News reported, “Palin seemed to be referring to a recent report in the Naples Daily News about candidate Curt Clawson, who has tried to frame himself as a conservative despite having a record that suggests otherwise:”

He made a campaign contribution to liberal Michigan Democrat Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) in 2009 after she wrote a provision into Obamacare that would allow the federal government to pick up health benefits of former employees of a company that Clawson owned. Furthermore, his company hired lobbyists and paid them nearly a million dollars while Obamacare was being fleshed out for “issues pertaining to manufacturing and filing for bankruptcy.”

In addition, Clawson has been under fire for having ties to a convicted pedophile and not being forthright about his relationship with him when it was first revealed. And days after Louisiana freshman Rep. Vance McAllister (R-LA) was caught on a surveillance video making out with is female aide who was not his wife, three of Clawson’s opponents held a press conference to demand transparency from Clawson about his ties to the pedophile.

That is the type of scandal voters in this district have indicated they no longer want and are tired of, and it could impact how they vote in the April 22 primary.

 **********

Kevin Scholla and Tony Lee’s article restores my faith in Breitbart. So far, they are mostly in our corner with a diversity of writers, but these things need to be brought up from time to time. We need to keep an eye on them, too.

UPDATE:   The so-called Conservative crashed the press-conference. Shark Tank is shameless!

EPIC Compilation of Headlines 2013 With Updates by Izzlovesfox1

 

marco center of attention

by Isabel Matos

What a difference a year makes! I hardly talk about Marco Rubio anymore. That’s because he had a really bad year last year and Sarah made an example of him after being caught in a lie where he told a Spanish-speaking audience legalization first, then secure the border.  That summer he voted for the Senate’s Bill S.744 and lost support among all the Conservatives I know. He also lost friends locally, which takes a lot, given their enthusiasm for him when he first won the Senate. jayz and beyonce in cuba

The picture of JayZ and his wife, Beyonce, who ended up going to Cuba in April last year, staying in a hotel overlooking the picturesque Havana harbor must have been embarrassing because he had quoted JayZ as a poet during Rand Paul’s filibuster, “It was all good a week ago.  What a difference seven days makes.”

JayZ’s trip was offensive – a horrible and painful reminder of the tyranny and slavery on the island that Cubans still seek to escape from.  He and Beyonce visited areas off-limits to most Cubans living on the island. They ignored reality and are hypocrites for justifying their visa to be at a cultural seminar with students of music.

It showed a lack of respect and just plain ignorance – no conscience for those living under conditions that will not change any time soon.  Anyone who says that easing the embargo will help Cuba just does not understand what is going on.

Beyonce also offended Cuban-Americans just prior to this trip after being photographed with a Castro youth group dedicated to revolution like Che Guevara. What to expect from someone who got paid $1 million to dance for Libyan Dictator Khaddafi (now dead). Even ignorance does not cut as deep as indifference to others’ suffering.

So, getting back to #ThrowbackThursday. This post was fun to put together. It took a long time to make a compilation of the TOP TEN izzlovesfox1 clips. I followed-up on each headline to keep telling the story to refresh the page on my (our collective) political journey, because…

NEW IS NEWS BUT STORIES ARE FOREVER.

The TOP TEN clips include tapes I made about Marco Rubio (with updates), Rhinos (with an update),  Headlines from March (with updates), CPAC Infiltrators, Rand Paul (with updates), Deportation, Amnesty (with updates), and the top three clips at the end. There is a little humor, some serious and lots of tough love for those who STILL DON’T GET that it is not up to us to answer to politicians. It is up to them to earn our trust, respect and confidence, especially AFTER they are elected, not just during a campaign when they promise the world.

Are voters more aware that their party is against them? That was my stated goal last year; unfortunately, it is hard to convey to some who do not care to see THE TRUTH about the politicians they cheer on.

rand paul drones

Rand Paul made huge headlines 2013, but they were all for his personal enrichment and campaign. Rand Paul may be a fighter, but he’s fighting for the wrong things. His attempt to make this party One Big Happy Family should be enough to make anyone nervous. He invited Chris Christie to a beer summit, his manager signed on with American Crossroads last year (while he was filibustering to protect the rights of Americans from drone attacks, which he reversed his position on 30 days later) and he has repeatedly insisted the party has to “evolve and adapt” if it is to survive. Some of his remarks border on veiled criticism of and disingenuous support of the Conservative base.

rand and trump

Rand Paul is on a path to political suicide like Rubio was last year if continues on this path of a softening our party (Charmin anyone?) and taking the Tea Party for granted. Why is he making a mistake? Because he hasn’t sold Conservatism to those he has been pandering to. He has been sloppy on policies to (try) to gain votes from all sides.

Rand Paul has asked Ted Nugent to apologize to the President, criticized Ted Cruz for distorting Reagan’s foreign policy, endorsed Mitch McConnell, the list goes on. I’ve heard from people who were at CPAC that his presence on stage is nothing like Sarah’s. He is not electric at all. He doesn’t stand tall (his “presence” on stage and physically). He is a not-so-exciting speaker who doesn’t show command as much as delivery of platitudes we hear all the time. He does not have the star power like so many try to portray him as having. Add to that he doesn’t keep his stance on any issue consistently and you’ve got a garden-variety politician, a RINO insider. His talk is all Bush Mush lately.

Paul Ryan ten dimes

Ryan, bless his heart Sarah says.. Is making the news for things he should have never done in 2009 when he was FOR Tarp when his budget plans were still a joke. What I remember most was his palling around with a known terrorist advocate and communist agitator, Luis V. Gutierrez. Ryan is clearly out of touch. That’s evident in his so-called outreach out to communities he would love to pander to. He has been a RINO and is next-in-line to Boehner.

3 rinos

It’s easy to see Jeb as being obscure as always, not outshining anyone except for saying stupid things. Even though Hispanics give birth to more children, he said “Hispanics are more fertile”. He also said Ted Cruz does not have solutions. (Well.. that’s because it’s UP to PEOPLE not POLITICIANS, Jeb, to come up with them!) Jeb’s sense of relevance is distorted. He also said breaking the laws to provide for one’s family as an illegal alien is an act of love.

Like a shadow or black cloud in our party we can’t get rid of, he’s either lurking in the background pushing others to do his dirty work for him. He announces he does not get his name in polls to sound like he doesn’t want to be president, but in reality it’s because the results of those polls are so negative he wouldn’t want them public). He can only have a glowing story about him probably by someone who has been paid directly or indirectly to do so. The fact is he IS going to fundraisers with billionaires like Shelon Adelson and it is to launch a non-campaign campaign. His father built the GOP machine as we know it, so he feels he’s entitled to being the next Bush presidential nominee.

Jeb does not make sense when he talks, which is why McCain probably said he is the smartest man he knows. Really. Saying stupid things or stupid comments are the only thing he is good at. Remember he said he would govern like Lyndon B. Johnson (that was last year before CPAC) if he had the chance.  He is a royal pain in our side.

My message: RUN, JEB, RUN!  Bring it. Get it out of your system. Immigration Reform is a huge fail. It was in 1986. Nothing’s changed.  Keep talking. To those who think their DUTY to support you: You’re just like lying dogs.

Let’s see what the GOP gaffes are in store for us this year. I thought Thad Cochran’s comment about not knowing what the Tea Party was about was a real humdinger, but typical  GOPe will always manage to find new ways to dig their grave a little deeper each time. Reince Priebus did so when he didn’t mention Sarah …wait. That was this year.

It was all good a year ago.. not!

Lizbeth BENACQUISTO’s Campaign Wants You To Know About Clawson’s Ties With Known Child Rapist

clawson scandal

by Isabel Matos

The Benaquisto campaign wants you to know that State Senator Lizbeth Benacquisto running for Congressional District 19 in Florida this APRIL 22nd joined her opponents in the GOP primary to issue a statement on a story the broke Friday:  Curt Clawson, the wealthy “fake” Conservative buying all the flashy ads and complaining she doesn’t show up to debates, has bigger issues to answer to. His relationship with a known child rapist, Glen Borst, is raising disturbing concerns on several fronts.. the relationship itself, the falsification of his financial disclosure about the rented house the molester rented from him in Utah, and his ducking all questions about it. This is the Fox News Video and Joint Statement Senator Benacquisto, Dr. Michael Dreikorn and Dr. Paige Kreegel issued:

“Now more than ever, we stand together to put politics aside to address some very serious questions that have been raised in this race. As candidates for the United States Congress – but more importantly as parents and members of this community – there is no greater priority than protecting our children from the violent predators who target them. Recent news reports have brought into question Curt Clawson’s relationship with a violent child rapist in Utah. He has dismissed these news reports as politically driven, and that just couldn’t be further from the truth.”

The campaign also passed along the local NBC article and News Video which I watched as well (followed by my awesome video.)

Lee County, Fl -

Glen Borst was convicted of attempted sex abuse of a child in 2004, and Borst later registered his address on a sex offender registry as the Saratoga Springs, Utah property owned by Clawson.

Utah property records indicate in 2013, Clawson transferred his ownership to a limited liability corporation called “Rewired CEO Utah LLC,” which lists Clawson as its agent. Rewired CEO Utah LLC sold the property last month.

We have also uncovered a 2006 document showing Clawson granted Borst a “special power of attorney,” giving Borst power to sign off on all documents related to Clawson’s purchase of the property. Borst was still on probation for his felony conviction at the time.

Clawson’s campaign said Clawson knew Borst as a child but had no contact with him for decades. That changed in 2006, when campaign officials said Clawson purchased the Utah address as an investment rental property. Borst’s ex-wife was the Realtor, and the campaign said Borst took power of attorney to handle the deal.

The campaign said Borst lived at the property as a “caretaker tenant” and Clawson was not aware Borst was a convicted sex offender until last week, when reporters began asking questions. It suggested Clawson’s opponents hired private investigators that harassed victims of sexual assault.

Clawson did not report the Utah property on financial disclosure forms filed in February. His campaign provided us with a letter from an Indiana Certified Public Accountant, Ross Swallow, saying Clawson was not required to disclose the property because it’s not held as an investment. However, the campaign characterized the house as an investment property in email exchanges Monday.

As of Tuesday, the Utah sex offender registry listed Borst as “non-compliant” for failing to register his current address.

“If it’s our responsibility for a parolee to make sure they’re responsive to the conditions of their parole, and we can’t track them or don’t know where they’re living, that obviously raises a concern,” said Stephen Gehrke, a spokesman for the Utah Department of Corrections, which maintains the sex offender registry.

Gehrke said Borst contacted local authorities to update his registration following news reports about his connection to Clawson.

“He actually saw some of those stories, and that was the first time he realized he was not in compliance,” Gehrke said, based on what Borst reported to authorities.
