I have seen some terrible ballot statements in the past. I read one from a Roseville City Council candidate written in ebonic sentence fragments, I read another one from an Assembly Candidate explaining how she was going to stop the Bildabergers and the Illuminati. These were real.
Jeff Seaton’s ballot statement makes the top five worst. (The above two are also on that list)
Seaton should have been sued over this ballot statement. Given his stellar record in Court, he’d have lost. Given the absurdities of it, he’d have lost.
Jeff Seaton passed the Bar in 1990 – he claims “36 years of experience in our legal system”. Musta flunked math class.
Seaton lists family and parenthood amongst his life’s experiences. (He forgot the Pig and the Chicken)
He also lists being a mediator and counselor in his ballot statement. (See also Schmitz vs Schmitz case – where he represented the male half, got fired then got a donation from the female half)
The most telling line is the comments about punishment for a crime being commensurate with the crime committed. Why don’t we start with Mr. Perdue who is rotting in jail, an innocent man because Jeff Seaton was wasted during the trial.
Jeff Seaton also indicated that he “strongly believes in law and order”… including railing on a rape victim until she lost the nerve to press charges or the way he treated Jennifer Minton?
“As your judge, I will strive to keep Amador County Safe” – really? Why did you take $1,000 from Dalton, why the $10k from the Casino?
However, I reserved the following line for the strongest ridicule: “I would now like to serve Amador County in a greater capacity”.
Let that sink in a second.
Law enforcement? He has done a lot of their divorces.
Veterans? He turned veteran’s day 2011 in to a campaign fundraiser.
Crime Victims? The stories are legion.
The Casino? He got $10k from them + a bonus $1k from Dalton.
The Republican Party? He got $5k from a leading left-wing law firm! He is defending the sons of the County Chairman related to their multiple issues.
The community? I guess if you’ve been to one of his pool parties. (just ask the pig)
Jeff Seaton’s ballot statement makes the top five list because I know him and his assertions in his ballot statements are gross fabrications based on what I know… and there is the small matter of his incessantly pimping his reserve military service. That part makes me angry.
Amador County – Send Seaton back to his law office so he can continue his legal (mal) practice.
