Jane Orie Conviction . . . Joan Orie Investigation . . . GAINEYGATE?

The media helping Ed Gainey STEAL AN ELECTION . . .

Last year Pittsburgh City Councilman Daniel Lavelle, of the Hill District, faced perjury and other charges in connection with the petition submitted to nominate Rep. Jake Wheatley in the Pennsylvania 19th House District.

In the police report, Allegheny County detectives said they spoke with several people who were listed in the 2010 petition and determined that more than 10 signatures were not genuine. County police said the matter was brought to their attention by then City Democratic Chair Tonya Payne.

Today, Ed Gainey, who replaced Tonya Payne as City Democratic Chair, presented statements from 16 people whose names appeared on Rep. Joe Preston's nomination petitions as not genuine. The Gainey campaign gave six affidavits from people who said they never signed Preston's petition to the County Elections Division who turned the Gainey materials over to the County police.

A Coincidence?


A coincidence is the occurrence of an event, or series of events, that can happen by chance or accidentally at the same time or at different times but seem to have some connection.

However, in this matter, Todd Elliott Koger has already provided County detectives documents that prove the Gainey campaign knowingly instructed individuals to sign false names on nomination petitions as an attempt to compromise his nomination petition. Mr. Koger advised the County detectives that he didn't file the petitions which included “FAKE” signatures because he knew the Gainey campaign was trying to set him up.

Mr. Koger only submitted nomination petitions that he knew were true and correct. But, Mr. Koger specifically advised the County detectives of Gainey's apparent“covert” activities.

What is interesting . . .

How did the Gainey campaign research Koger's, Preston's and Anderson's nomination petitions in just seven days?

Impossible, without the help of the County Elections Division.
