Nearing Post Time for the 2012 Electoral Horserace

Today's the last day when candidates for Vermont's statewide and legislative elective offices may submit their nominating petitions.

Wannabe "Senator" Robert "Needed Killin' " Wagner's call to arms for 30 secessionist Senate candidates to lead Vermont out of the Union (which received no responses on his website) has only registered one candidate from the list of 5 that he's been promoting for nearly a year - Peter Moss from Franklin County who is running under the Peace and Prosperity Party (?) banner on this go around - all the while claiming that he has at least 6 who'll be running for the senate in 2012. This is according to the latest list of submitted petitions as of Tuesday, June 12 that was made available to VTDigger by Vermont Secretary of State Jim Condos.

I suppose we're going to have to wait until post time at 5:00 PM to learn if the present lone occupant of the secesher clown car will have company.

Secretary Condos has indicated that his office will try to have a complete list of candidates who've submitted nominating petitions by today's deadline up online over the weekend sometime.

Meanwhile, in another matter related to Wagner's conflicting positions, there's been no word yet about whether Wagner will be returning the $288.30 Federal subsidy he received while flying out of the airport in Rutland, VT, which is exactly the kind of subsidy that he "is strongly opposed to" and has argued harms Vermonters that I revealed he'd hypocritically availed himself of (as in sticking his snout in the federal money trough) here. Wagner must publicly give back that subsidy money or he'll be exposed for the hypocritical fraud that many of us Vermonters know him to be.

Whew, it looks like Sen Needed Killin made the deadline, at least according to his FB page.

FTR, I signed Pete Moss' petition outside the Steeple Market the other day. I was sad that he didn't recognize me from a candidate forum in 2010, but he's 150 years old and has an accent, so I forgive him.

Yeah, saw his post.

Frankly, I'd sign any of their nominating petitions, and not just because I'm looking for the action. I believe in the process but I don't think they do.

Moss, for instance, doesn't seem to grasp the whole 1st Amendment thing about "not... mak(ing)... law respecting... abridging the freedom... of the press." Maybe too few acronyms or CAPS in it.
