Their Exhibits? Five undercover, shaky, videos, with fishbowl-like audio, of circulators.
Which they have lied about.
Lied?! Well then the Anti-Recallers should be thrown out, no?
You’d think so, wouldn’t ya?
For instance, there is the video labeled,
Circulator Talks About Payment By Quota
Now mind you, THIS is the video they Anti’s are really hanging their beanies on. This is the one, baby. This will shut it all down. Are you ready?
Let’s go to the YouTubes!
OK, here is the transcript of the money talk (so to speak):
Undercover Forward Omaha: Have you made your quota yet?
Circulator: Recall! Uh, I don’t know.
(Unintelligible) ...we gotta get like ten signatures an hour.
UFO: Ten signatures an hour to get $20 an hour?
UFO: OK.Now. Keep in mind kids, they are trying to make this admissible in court.
So someone said something was a quota? Yes, that would be... the UFO! If some random dude starts asking about how YOU get paid, are you going to give him all the details? And then did the UFO nail down if ten sigs was a requirement to get paid...or simply a goal?
Of course not.
But Forward Omaha and Vince Powers and Jim Suttle want the Judge to believe this dripping water shooter is really a Smoking Gun.
And then the UFOs set up another entitled:
Circulator Claims 15% Tax on Restaurant
Hmm. Really? Well, again, let’s look at the actual blurry video:
And here is the transcript of what the dude says.
The Mayor went ahead and put a 15% sales tax on all the restaurants and all the food, so now when you go to a restaurant it’s 15% more, in the City of Omaha, whereas outside of Omaha you don’t pay that.And that is 100% false dude!
Because the actual increase was 28.5%!
That’s right math wizards, an increase from 7% to 9% is a 28.5% increase. So you are paying 28.5% more in taxes. (And we are actually leaving out the fact that it’s a tax on a tax and it’s really more than that, but the math is easier this way. You’re welcome Mayor.)
So the guy got it wrong. He undercut it. But of course...so what?
Because that guy IS NOT A CIRCULATOR!
The guy from Omaha, holding the clipboard, collecting the signature is the circulator. The guy talking is supporting the position. So video him all day long if you want. Maybe he has a YouTube site. Maybe his YouTube site will be admissible in court.
Or maybe not.
And while we’re at it, please tell us which of these signatures is invalid.
Oh wait, NONE, because the UFOs didn’t sign the petition!
So here is the reality people:
The people who wanted to sign the petition, signed the pettion.
Those who did not want to -- like the UFOs here -- didn’t.
So cross out all the Mickey Mouses and Gretna residents.
And count up the rest, Phippsy.
