James Hartline Filled Out A Form All By Himself
James Hartline is running for a seat for the City Council Third District — the very same city council district I live in.
He proudly reports in his relatively new James Hartline For San Diego City Council blog that “The Hartline Revolution Has Begun In San Diego!“
Here are some of the details:
Today James Hartline filed his first Form 460 financial statement. The Form 460 filing deadline is August 15, 2007. Each qualified candidate for the city council must file a form 460 financial statement for each quarter.
What is incredible about James filing his Form 460 is that he did it all on his own without paying any accountant or political consultant a single dime! This represents a revolution for the common man in local politics. For too long, wealthy, money-hungry political hacks and political consultants have manipulated voters and fresh candidates to believe that they cannot make it without their professional help. This is simply a lie! We can make it and we will make it without the political consultant greedy hacks that are destroying the electoral system in San Diego.
By the way, James Hartline frequently pulls the “Bob Dole” thing in his blogs — y’know, where he refers to himself in third person.
Back to the details:
Without having a fundraiser yet, James has raised $720 and reported $450 in contributions during the July reporting period.
Seven-hundred-twenty dollars! His campaign is rich! Rich — in more than one sense of the word apparently.
And lastly, he reports…
The Hartline Revolution has begun! We are going to fight and fight and fight the corruption in San Diego to give back our city to the people! The people will prevail. James is determined to fight for the people to reclaim an open door policy for all San Diegans at city hall!
Yep, the one thing I’m sure of is that the people will prevail in San Diego’s Third Council District. There’s not a chance in heaven or hell he’ll be elected to the City Council seat he’s running for.
If you can’t get enough of Hartline, here’s more insanity:
* Hartline: Mitt Romney’s beliefs disgrace the birth of Christ
* Hartline: San Diego is suffering from God’s wrath
* Six Years In Sodom: From The Journal Of James Hartline
