I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.
It would appear that a reader was right that you could not campaign (including getting signatures to be on the ballot) on federal property like the Cudahy U.S. Post Office.
Besides the McCain-Feingold Campaign reform bill, there is something called Hatch that spells out campaigning on federal property.
When I get more information/responses, I will let you all know. Who knows, maybe McCue will not have enough votes to make the ballot and no mayoral primary will be needed.
Note - Daniel Stanislowski dropped out for health reasons and didn’t hand in the signature paperwork.
And don’t forget, just because you did something before, doesn’t make it right or legal to do and you have to know the rules even if a sign is not posted.
Maybe the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel will pickup the story.
Here is the email I sent to the Cudahy City Attorney and the Cudahy Clerk Treasure:
A reader of my blog informed me of the flowing information:
“The McCain-Feingold Campaign reform bill (Public Law 107-155) strengthens the restrictions on soliciting donations and campaigning on federal property and says "IN GENERAL- It shall be unlawful for any person to solicit or receive a donation of money or other thing of value in connection with a Federal, State, or local election from a person who is located in a room or building occupied in the discharge of official duties by an officer or employee of the United States. It shall be unlawful for an individual who is an officer or employee of the Federal Government, including the President, Vice President, and Members of Congress, to solicit a donation of money or other thing of value in connection with a Federal, State, or local election, while in any room or building occupied in the discharge of official duties by an officer or employee of the United States, from any person.” This is generally interpreted to bar campaigning from federal property.”
So the signatures that Mayor McCue received at the Cudahy U.S. Post Office will they be throughout and how will we know which ones they are?
Does the McCain-Feingold Campaign reform bill also include public schools and county parks?
