 Campaign contribution research on
   Jennifer Brunner for the 2006
campaign for Ohio Secretary of State


Is Jennifer Brunner Honest?
         You decide

    Provided by the Westlake Glenn Beck meetup group
   In 2006, Jennifer Brunner raised over $2,200,000 to run for
                     Ohio Secretary of State
  Why so much money to run for a secretary of state office? As you will see
    newly formed left wing organizations had something called the “SOS
  project”. Five states were targeted to change the republican secretary of
state to a democrat: Iowa, Nevada, Minnesota, New Mexico, and Ohio. All
                      5 offices changed party affiliation.
 Jennifer Brunner received over $300,000 from unions and union locals in
                                  2006

   She was provided with over $360,000 in campaign contributions from
              herself, her family, and her family’s law firm

        Jennifer Brunner received campaign contributions from 454
                        lawyers for over $220,000

      She received over $300,000 from the Ohio Democratic Party, the
      money donated to the the ODP by some of the same groups that
                          donated directly to her.

 Before we move on with
   Jennifer Brunner, it
  seems appropriate to
explain, just a little, how
     the corruption is
  perpetrated. It begins
with a complex system of
small groups of folks that
   have an agenda for
 America that none of us
  want. The republicans
 are every bit as corrupt
 as the democrats. They
 each, just have different                  member
         agendas.
The diagram to the right
is a “Muckety Map”. It
shows relationships and         Large
                              Contributor
  connections between
    people (pink) and
  organizations (blue).
What I can’t show you is
  the extent that these
 relationships permeate
        the system.
 On some of the colored
  squares you can see a
   small plus sign. This
expands the relationship
 of that person or group
  further. It would take
 thousands of slides and
   hundreds of hours to
 view the intricate fabric
of these connections, so I
 will only show you two.
Yes just two, and you will
 begin to see how money                    member
 moves and corrupts our
         elections.

      Let’s talk about
 EMILY”S List for a few
   minutes. Emily’s list
purports on their web site
    to be “dedicated to
  building a progressive
   America by electing
 democrat women….” It

   democrat candidates
   including $11,000 to

    “Catalist” is an
organization that exists
 “to nurture a vibrant,
                               Large
 growing, progressive        Contributor
    community” by
maintaining and using a
 high tech database of
 information on every
American of voting age.
    Do you remember
“America Votes” from the
Democracy Alliance slide?
  Well, Emily’s list is a
  member of “America
    Votes” and if you          Major
                             fundraiser
 remember, was founded

 America Votes has three
   large lobbying firms                    member
 spending millions to pass
    legislation and gain
influence over candidates.
Now watch how little Susie
   Buell fits in to the
       program
   Little Susie is the sink for
the web. The money comes in
 through the faucet and goes
    out through the drain.
   Our innovative “campaign
   finance reform” created a
   maximum contribution of
 $10,000. Both parties create
these complex organizations,
  with hundreds of members,
 hundreds of employees, and         Large
                                  Contributor
hundreds of contributors that
are given the money and then                    member
   told where to send it. This
way candidates that are slated
 to win get millions of dollars
  funneled to them. Is there a
   quid pro quo? Why would
   you go through this much
      trouble? You decide.
   This is only a very small
  strand in the giant web of
      corruption that’s
 overwhelming our political
            system.
                        One final lesson:
     There was a large contributor to Jennifer Brunner that seemingly had no
 connection to these organized groups. His name is S. Daniel Abraham. He has a
truly American story, being poor and is now the founder of Slim-Fast. He lives in
 Florida now, but is from New York. It seemed his only interest was freedom and
security for Israel and other Jewish causes. Then why give $10,000 to a secretary
                       of state candidate in Ohio? Watch this:

       Mr. Abraham is a large donor of the “Birthright Israel Foundation”

 Have you ever heard the name Marc Rich? He also is a donor to the “Birthright
   Israel Foundation”. He was prosecuted and convicted of tax fraud by Rudy
Guiliani. His lawyer was Scooter Libby, Dick Cheney’s former chief of staff. And
                        he was pardoned by Bill Clinton.
       Another of Mr. Rich’s attorneys was Jack Quinn, former chief
                   of staff for vice president Al Gore

    Now, guess who arranged the pardon? Then U.S. attorney……now…
                        Attorney General, Eric Holder

                     Coincidence? You decide.
                               Here are some other state races for the
