Run Danny Run

Danny Fabricant, the 70-year-old Hells Angel serving a life sentence in the United States Penitentiary at Lompoc filed an Administrative Complaint today with the Federal Elections Commission.

Danny lists his address as 84828-012 Suite J, 3901 Klein Blvd, Lompoc California and complains on behalf of the [email protected] Danny is running as a Trump Republican to represent the 30th Congressional District of California. The incumbent is Democrat Brad Sherman (above and below).

The Federal Elections Commission has a rule to which Danny objects.

So Many Rules

According to the FEC:

“An individual becomes a candidate for federal office whenever any of the following events occur:
”The individual has received contributions aggregating in excess of $5,000 or made expenditures aggregating in excess of $5,000; The individual has given his or her consent to another person to receive contributions or make expenditures on behalf of that individual and such person has received contributions aggregating in excess of $5,000 or made expenditures in excess of $5,000; The aggregate of contributions received in 1 and 2 above combined exceeds $5,000 or the aggregate of expenditures made in 1 and 2 above combined exceeds $5,000.”

So far, nobody has gifted Danny or the Fabricant Victory Committee five grand so his name does not appear on the ballot and as far as the government is concerned he is not an official candidate. But whether Fabricant’s candidacy is sincere or satirical, he is one of America’s foremost jailhouse lawyers and he is not going to tsuffer the FEC snub without at least offering an argument.

Complaint

Fabricant complains: “What this appears to mean is that a person MUST have either received or spent in excess of $5,000, or he/she will not be deemed to be a candidate for a federal public office, by the FEC. First of all, this appears to be in conflict with Article 1, § 2, Clause 2 of the United States Constitution, which states…’No person shall be a Representative who shall not have attained to the Age of twenty-five Years, and been seven Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State in Which he shall be chosen.’ [strangely capitalized-words in original]. While Complainant does not profess to know WHAT is meant by the verbiage after ‘United States,· the first part is pretty clear. A Candidate has to be at least 25 years of age, and has to have been a United States citizen for at least 7 years. I think we can all agree on that analysis. Somewhere, somehow, the amount of $5,000 came into play, along with the ever growing ‘business’ of conducting elections.

“Complainant, who is over the age of 25 and a was born in the United States, some 70 years ago, duly registered to run as a Republican Candidate for the 30th Congressional District of the State of California. Claimant initially set up a GoFundMe page, and several people made contributions to it. A few months later, the GoFundMe people explained the bunch of hoops that must be jumped through to have the donated monies paid, mipus 15%. They also warned that if the hoops were not all jumped through, the monies would be returned to the credit cards of the people who had made the donations. Claimant instructed the persons who had set up the GoFundMe page to allow this to happen. He also decided that his campaign would be run without accepting any sort of donations, and without the expenditure of any monies.”

“It should be noted that Complainant understands that ‘$5,000 requirement’ on the form is merely a restatement of the ‘$5,.000 requirement’ mandated by 52 U.S.C. § 30101(2)(A) and (B) and 11 C.F.R. §§ 100.3 and 100.5. But we’re talking about the realities of the time we are in. The guys [NOTE: There were no women involved in the writing of the United States Constitution, nor Articles nor early Amendments] who wrote Article 1, § 2, Clause 2 certainly could not have foreseen the Internet, nor the huge industry that elections have become. However, they set forth only two requirements for the candidacy of a man [See: Note above] desiring to be elected as a Representative; that he be at least 25 years old and a United States citizen for at least 7 years. The $5,000 requirement was Congress’ idea (and who am I to question the ‘wisdom’ of Congress, a few decades ago?)

“Claimant’s campaign has, to date, been run solely through social media and e-mailings, by his family and friends. No donations have been accepted nor have any expenditures been made (See: Facebook.com/Danny Fabricant). Complainant is not the first Candidate, in recent times, to run a campaign this way.”

What Fabricant Wants

Fabricant cites several campaigned he considers to be analogous to his and then he demands that:

… the Commission either create an exception to the ‘$5,000 requirement’ for Candidates who intend to run their campaigns solely via the Internet, and/or send a recommendation to Congress that 52 U.S.C. § 30101(2)(A) and (B) be appropriately amended to either remove the ‘$5,000 requirement’ or add an exception for Candidates who intend to run their campaigns solely via the internet, without accepting donations nor making expenditures. Additionally, because Complainant was unconstitutionally disallowed to be on the March 3, 2020 California primary Election Ballot, the FEC should cause his name to be on the December 3, 2020 General Election Ballot, for the 30th District of California.”

The government functionary who reads this complaint is likely to underestimate but Fabricant. But anybody who has ever slogged through his voluminous court filings knows that once he decides to pursue an issue he rips at it the way a terrier rips at a rat. Fabricant is bright and witty. Right now, he is obviously having fun.

    Would love to see Danny win this,
    I don’t care what anyone says, he’d have to be better then anyone else that’s made it in the last 15-20 years.
    Think about it, when was the last time you heard of anyone doing anything in that seat?
    Not only that, in prison, especially doing life, you have all the time in the world to concentrate on important matters.
    And when was the last time any of them entered the government chambers, other then to reschedule their golf time?
    And maybe, just maybe, someone would look at why he is doing life, ( better not let that out ) people would have a fit to know this man is doing life for 13 grams of drugs on a dinner plate.
    And the Feds #1 informant that worked diligently, murdering a mother of 5 children, (for good reason tho, she mouthed off) and another man, (again for good reason, he was gonna tell on him for….. you guessed it, for a murder) back to, he worked diligently selling/buying drugs, spending our tax dollars going to strip clubs to pick up, rape, and beat girls, buy cool motorcycles, guns, oh yeah, and more drugs…..you gotta buy drugs cuz you can only pinch so much outta what you have to give back to your Federal handler, and they only allow you to do a few grams a day, and any drug addict will tell you, you need more then that to be able to stay up all night raping and beating girls, takes a lot of energy!
    And even though he’s still employed by our Federal Gangsters….. I mean government, and has been for about 15 years now, at about $200,000 a year ( cheap Feds, don’t they know what a toilet seat costs) he’s yet to put anyone else behind bars…. but the Federal Gangsters, I mean government, says he’s promising.
    To top it off, I’ll bet the informant is voting for the other guy!
    Now who would you rather see win?

    common sense 1) there were 10 hunger strikers altogether at that time.2} in regards to it being britain what does it have to do with the USA? if Danny got on the ballot and enough people said YES it would shake our political system just a bit in my opinion.

  4. Hellequiain Says:

    Bobby Sands. IRA Hunger Striker. Elected ‘Anti H Block / Political Prisoner’ Member of Parliament for Fermanagh 9th April 1981.

    Died less than a month later without ever leaving prison……..

  5. commonsense Says:

    ToWillie Lee it was also Francis Hughes, Patsy O’Hara, Ray Mc Creesh and Kevin Lynch.

  6. commonsense Says:

    To Willie Lee. That was in Britain not sure that applies here in the US.

  7. oldskewl Says:

    Wille, I have no doubt this could have happened before but in the age of Trump and he’s running as a Republican Trumper I don’t think it will work. I wish it would work because honesty and the real world are not part of the way politicians think these days.

    You know they’d throw this good man and anyone in his corner under the bus.

  8. willie lee Says:

    oldskewl look up an IRA hunger striker who was elected to british parliament in 1980 or 81 while behind bars Bobby Sands

  9. oldskewl Says:

    So let’s be honest, no way he could serve his constituents behind bars. He would have no way to enter the government chambers unless he was shackled like a beast. They’d make a mockery of him and they’d find a way if elected to invalidate that election.

    The Swamp is real.

  10. Agnarr Says:

    Rebel really great report.
    I’m helping a friend with him running for the House of Rep seat in Tex #11. It’s an open seat race, so I understand where you are in this story as far as the twisted rules apply. Most of them appear to have a bias that help those in power stay that way.
    However, I noticed an error in the date on the General Election it ‘s on November 3rd, 2020. Your article has it written for December 3rd, 2020.
    Take care and thanks always .
