Dobkin Accused of Posting Signs on Imperial Middle School Fence

October 25, 2008

We had a comment by Rick today under the post, “Sales Tax Increase Poll”, that Candidate Dobkin was posting political signs on Imperial Middle Schools fence facing in towards the soccer fields.  That this was a violation.

So, we sent an e-mail to Dobkin to explain what this was about.

Larry, matter of factly, stated that he was putting up signs, just not political signs.

Because many people have been asking AYSO to support the Sales Tax (Measure T), Dobkin had asked the AYSO Region 94 Director if he could put up signs on the fence that stated that ‘AYSO neither endorses or supports ballot measures.’

I guess we now have to be nice to Larry for making sure people understand, indirectly, that Non-Profits supporting ballot measures or political candidates may run afoul of the law and lose their Non-profit status.

Larry, thank you for clearing up the sign issue and performing a public service.

Now for the Question:

Are the sports groups being leveraged to support the sales tax?  Are they handing out pro or con material at their sporting events on School property or publicly owned sports parks?  Would the city and their political cronies actually use scare tactics against parents and children to get Measure-T to pass, would they really stoop that low?

Nah, no way.  What, are you kidding me?
