The following email received by IPR and apparently sent by Don Adams, President of the Independence Tea Party Political Action Committee (see: http://www.independencehallteapartypac.com), to Republican Party supporters in Pennsylvania, claims Libertarian and Constitution Party candidates in Pennsylvania were fraudulently “propped up by Democrats and (are) not the product of a grassroots petition effort.”
The following email was apparently sent earlier today:
August 16, 2012 4 PM
The Republican State Committee sent us an urgent letter requesting assistance.
The committee is seeking to challenge the fraudulent Pennsylvania nomination papers of the Libertarian and Constitution Party presidential candidates who were aided and abetted by Democratic petition circulators to get their names on the November ballot.
If their names appear on the ballot, they could siphon thousands of votes away from Romney/Ryan and shift the PA election and electoral votes to Obama/Biden.
The committee needs our help. In their own words:
“Last week, we found fraud and defects in the nomination papers of the Libertarian and Constitution Party candidates. We also found that these candidates were being propped up by Democrats and not the product of a grassroots petition effort.
Beginning Monday, we have to work in Philadelphia to substantiate our challenges to these nomination papers.The Democrats know the nomination papers that were submitted are full of flaws, but it takes our hard work to prove it to the courts and have them removed from the ballot. This is a BIG project, requiring a minimum of 40 people per day to assist with our challenges.
We need your help. Starting Monday at the Philadelphia Voter Registration Office (520 North Delaware Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19123-4295), we will begin this extremely important work. Can you help anytime, Monday through Friday of next week?
Your help on this project can very well be the difference in this process and in the election in November. We MUST have the fraudulent and flawed nomination papers invalidated.”
Presidential Candidate Fraud Detection Project:
When: Monday thru Friday, (August 20-24); Shifts: 8:30-11AM/11AM-2PM/2-5PM
Where: Phila. Voter Reg. Office, 520 N. Delaware Ave. (@ Spring Garden) 19123
If you are able to cover any of the above shifts, please call me at 215.620.3055.
We cannot allow the Obama/Biden Democrats to get away with stunts like this.
On behalf of the PAC Board of Delegates,
Carla Howell, The Gary Johnson Campaign, The Libertarian Party of Pennsylvania and others are likewise attempting to organize 20+ Volunteers each day to assist the State of Pennsylvania’s verification efforts — albeit without the (mis) characterization of said efforts as a “Presidential Candidate Fraud Detection Project.”
