Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House
Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House of Representatives certainly has her detractors but she hasn’t met the tenacity of Helen Tansey yet. Tansey attempted to address the SBE on October 5 prior to their mandatory appearance in federal court at 11:00 AM. The board could only give her one minute. They had less than 15 minutes until court.
Tansey said she needed at least 5 minutes to present her remarks on a complaint she had hand-delivered to the SBE eight weeks earlier. She had also sent the same to Bill Mims, Virginia Attorney General. She complained that she had received no response from either party.
The complaint charged that Pelosi committed election fraud during the 2008 General Election when she certified that President Obama was a United States citizen and qualified to run for the office of President.
Jean Cunningham, Chair explained to an insistent Tansey that she could return on October 9 when they would assemble for another SBE meeting. On October 9 Tansey returned and read a three-page prepared statement.
Nancy Rodrigues, Secretary for the SBE said Monday that they had no authority in the matter and that Ms. Tansey correctly sent her complaint to the attorney general. Rodrigues said that it is not uncommon for public citizens to address the SBE being a public body. Those that do are “passionate” said Rodrigues.
Tansey who several years ago had worked as a lobbyist for Virginia Forever, a nature conservancy organization was is a staunch Hillary Clinton supporter during the presidential primary. She donated $2500 to Clinton’s campaign.
In a phone call to her Richmond home Monday Tansey still echoed a twang of resentment over the democratic primary results that favored then Senator Barrack Obama. Tansey chose unemployment for a year so she could spent time researching state and federal election law and testimony. She concluded that “election fraud had been committed here in Virginia.”
She stressed that it was an individual effort on her part that began on May 31, 2008. As an “extremely dedicated Hillary Clinton supporter” she watched the DNC rules and by-laws committee give Obama half the Clinton votes of Florida and Michigan. She was “sure something was up.”
This set Tansey on her mission to pay closer attention. The floor vote at the Democratic convention was stopped abruptly to give Obama the nomination. This only served to further her passion. She still refers to herself as a “Hillary Democrat.” Her quest began to unravel what she perceived as a failure of the DNC to follow their own rules and by-laws. “She was appaled” at the DNC’s actions and eventually struck up a relationship with an attorney on a blog who was also a Hillary supporter.
Both the attorney and Tansey concluded that election fraud had been violated. No Hawiian official had ever come out publicly and stated that Obama’s COLB (certificate of live birth) was real. “They danced around the issue,” said Tansey. She contends that Pelosi deliberately ignored Obama’s ineligability for the Democratic nomination. On August 28 Pelosi in spite of the questionable COLB and one birth announcement certified him anyway, claims Tansey.
“My party, the Democratic Party did something that was wrong and put forth a candidate that in their own by-laws stipulates that every presidential and vice-presidential candidate must meet constitutional guidelines. They put forth a candidate that was questionable,” said Tansey. To this day there has been nothing produced to change her perception.
“What did they base his eligibility on?” The question still haunts her. She continues to maintain that – “my candidate, Hillary Clinton was the rightful winner of the primary and the rightful winner of the Democratic National election.” She feels “her party did something illegally” and claims she can prove it.
Tansey was pleased to have her remarks on record at the SBE.
Off topic on campaign finance law with Nancy Rodrigues and her great sense of humor:
In relaying my failed attempt at interpreting Virginia State Law regarding campaign finance to Ms. Rodrigues, she very seriously responded to me saying “so what you’re telling me, Valerie is that State Law could be unclear?” She burst out laughing and I then realized the extent of her sarcasm. After we both regained our composure she said “after two years she is amazed more and more on just how limited we are … if it’s not Section 24.2 then no can do.”
The SBE attempts to obtain clarity of the law from the General Assembly “all the time … last year there were 150 bills to clarify” said Rodrigues. She estimates that 98.5% of the time people are trying to do the right thing and “that’s what gives me faith.”
