On your “own dime”? Really?

As most of my readers know, I have been more or less following the Adventures of Orly Taitz in Citizenshipland for a while. I’ve lurked her “blog” and today, I read something on her Senatorial campaign Facebook page that knocked me for a loop.
Here’s the screencap:

Yes, she really does say that SHE paid her own way in her “Quijotic” Quest to unseat the President. Yet a simple search on “orly taitz frequent flyer” (sans quotes) turns up a number of postings where she is thanking various “supporters” for their donations of miles, and posts where she’s asking for both frequent flyer AND hotel points.

On her own dime? I think not.
From her own blogsite:

If you can donate frequent flyer miles or can help with a stand by ticket, call me at 949-683-5411

Here she is asking for donations of Miles and Points. and, yet, it’s all on her “own dime”.

Now I have a visit counter on my web site. Over a 1,000 people visit this website every hour. I need to raise $3,150 more to register on the ballot as a candidate for the U.S. Senate. If readers donate even a small amount, such as $5 or $3, it will help to raise this amount quickly.

Yesterday I flew to AZ to present the case for Social Security fraud committed by Obma to Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Between airfare, car rental, gasoline, copying of documents and so on, it was some $700 in one day. When more readers of this site donate small amounts, it helps to cover those fees and hopefully save some funds for future battles. I often get phone calls, letters and e-mails, where people are telling me that they are behind me and are praying for me, which is nice, but nice words and prayers do not pay for the airfare, car rental, court fees and so on.

Your donations and support is appreciated!

PS. Frequent flyer miles, hotel miles help. I, also, need tech support and clerical support from someone, who can actually come to my office and help at location. Remote control help does not work well. If you have experience with campaigns, let me know

Yes, this goes on and on. Asking her very aptly named ‘Supporters” to donate, donate, donate. She’s getting free labor from them as well, as the above posting shows. She’s not a fan of telecommuting, as she can’t watch them.

So, Orly, what would the FEC think of these donations? Did you file? And, before you decide to scrub those entries, I have them archived as PDFs in the cloud. Nothing is ever gone from the Internet.

and, then THIS gem:

The negative aspect, is the fact, that this will be the fifth time I will be flying to HI to a hearing. It is depleting all the donations. I hate to ask, but donations and frequent flier miles will come very handy. This is a very tough fight. You know the resources, that might opponent has, but with your help we are moving along. Thank you for your support .
If you can, please be generous with your donation to help underwrite the expense of airfare, lodging, meals for Dr. Taitz and witnesses as she flies from her home in California to court hearings in Hawaii and Georgia. She’s at the tip of the sword on our behalf.
“Reminder! I need to fly a number of witnesses to trial in GA on the 26th. frequent flier miles and donations are badly needed.
“If you love your country, please help me fight this creeping tyranny and corruption. Donations no matter how small will help pay for airline and travel expenses.”

I have not changed a thing. This is grifting. Not one supporter asks her for an accounting, not one asks for the “witness” list – witnesses that never materialized, I believe.
I’m not muckracking. I’m just reporting on what I consider to be hanky-panky with people’s trust. Especially in light that no one really knows squat about her.
