This is a bad photoshop job…

Undaunted, Bob’s Meme dude backs up his photoshop job:

He is a man of integrity, with dozens of Howze signs in the bed of his truck…

Mr. Elliott will be removed from the political gene pool soon. Until then, I am sure it will get worse. (Like Sean Feucht / Tim Donnelly worse)

Note: CA-10= California’s 10th Congressional District currently infested by Dem Josh Harder.

Live action photo of Bob Elliott with several Ted Howze signs in the bed of his truck.

A couple of young Ted Howze volunteers caught Bob Elliott in the act with his wife. They were picking up Ted Howze signs and throwing them in to the back of his pickup. Apparently, Mr. Elliott is not handling having to run a competitive campaign all that well.

somehow this meme of Bob Elliott on CNN makes better sense now

The two youthful volunteers were confronted by Bob Elliott who promptly ditched them.

I wish the volunteers would have gotten some better photos of Bob in action…

It remains to be seen if the trump-hating also-ran candidate gets in on the fun. Because “she’s one of us”… but I digress.

He sure has the breaking the law part down well.
Your Intrepid Blogger is in exclusive receipt of a letter that blasts Bob Elliott for using his military uniform in a campaign ad. It is signed by 6 Military Veterans and cites specific parts of the DOD code that explicitly detail what Elliott did. What did Elliott do? He featured himself in full dress uniform in a campaign ad. This is a big no-no and is one of the most common mistakes do-it-yourself-candidates commit.
Bob Elliott himself should have known better as he was a career military man before becoming a career politician.

Dear Bob Elliott,
Honor and duty are two words that we hold sacred as veterans of the United States Armed Forces. Unfortunately, it has come to our attention that a political campaign television ad is currently airing  featuring you in military dress uniform. As veterans of the United States military we believe that you are denigrating the uniform we all wore protecting and defending this nation by using it as a political prop. Further, you are likely well aware that you are in direct violation of the United States Department of Defense directive all former military service men and women must uphold.
Mr. Elliott, you have neither been in an active duty or reserve member military role for 20 years. The use of your military uniform in political advertising is in clear violation of Department of Defense Directive 1344.10, 4.3.2, 4.3.2.1, which states, members of the military not on active duty may NOT, in campaign literature (including Web sites, videos, television, and conventional print advertisements): or allow the use of photographs, drawings, and other similar media formats of themselves in uniform as the primary graphic representation in any campaign media, such as a billboard, brochure, flyer, Web site, or television commercial. For the purposes of this policy, ‘photographs’ include video images, drawings, and all other similar formats of representational media.
Given this blatant disregard for regulations that our duty and former service require us to abide by, we ask that you immediately cease and desist immediately with these campaign advertisements and the politicization and denigration of our nation’s uniform solely for your own political gain.
Sincerely,
Donald “Duke” Cooper

You would think that someone who served 20 years in the military would respect his service more than to sell it out on a cheap political stunt like this… to be continued…

SJ County Supervisor Bob Elliott has some explaining to do. Over $200,000 in annual compensation and a haul of gifts fit for a king?!

Elliott needs to answer more than the obvious question of why he at his age and after 10 years as a Supervisor is wanting to run for State Senate then Congress.

Your intrepid blogger wants to know who airbrushed this photo.

I will give the folks in Bob Elliott’s camp credit for truth in advertising. Bob Elliott does know politics. Bob Elliott is earning $134,000 a year off of the government + benefits. Health Insurance alone for a man his age is easily $24,000 a year.

Beyond the roughly $175,000 total value of all of Elliott’s compensation from the taxpayers of San Joaquin, he gets another $4K a year in stipends from various boards he sits on.

On top of this, Elliott is accruing a third pension courtesy of his service as a San Joaquin County Supervisor. He has a pension from prior federal government service and from General Electric.

Got all that?

$134,000 base salary
$40,000 in Benefits* (estimated value)
$4,000 in stipends

AND – a Pension guaranteed for life and automatic as of assuming office. My estimate is that at 2.5% x 10 years of service, Elliott would receive $33,500 a year from the taxpayers of San Joaquin County for the rest of his life.

Is Bob Elliott bored? Is he having a later in life crisis?

This is likely the best job Elliott has ever had. He is literally getting over $200,000 a year (equivalent value) from the Taxpayers of San Joaquin County, what a massive haul from government.

It gets better – a look at Bob Elliott’s Form 700 Financial Disclosures from his (2013 Form 700) and (2014 Form 700) show that Mr. Elliott was getting a ton of Free Meals, Booze and Event Tickets.

Mr. Elliott got 62 Gifts in 2013 that he reported and 61 more in 2014. That is 123 Gifts in just two years! Is Bob Elliott abusing the public trust due to the frequency with which he accepts gifts from people? Did those gifts come with any strings attached?

What were all those gifts? About half were gifts of meals and/or wine. It looks like enough wine to make Pete Buttgeig or Elizabeth “Pocahantas” Warren Blush. The total number of meals reminds me of scandal-riddled AD73 incumbent Bill Brough who likely just paid for his excesses out of his campaign account because there are strict limits on gifts for legislators. The parallels between Bob Elliott and Bill Brough are clear.

Another large chunk of Elliott’s gifts were event tickets – at least 40 in total. It must be nice to be a supervisor and never have to pay your own way to anything.

This works out to 5 free meals / bottles of wine / “gifts” a month for Bob Elliott. This is a problem.

Since the incumbent in CA-10 Josh Harder is all about Impeachment, fanciful violations of non-existent laws and late-night paranoid fantasies about President Trump’s tax returns – imagine what he’d do should Bob Elliott make the runoff! Imagine what Josh Harder’s cheerleaders in the local rag would do with this information?

Dear Modesto Newspaper – Dinner is served

Elliott reports getting Flowers for his wife 5 times and there is a reference to a Necklace and a scarf given to his wife as well. I suppose the positive spin would be that Elliott is enlisting his donors to bolster his home life as well. Perhaps the Nativity scene he accepted as a gift would also fall in to that genre’?

Bob Elliott attempted to use his military title on the ballot and was slammed by the Local Registrar of Voters who informed him that was not allowed. When Elliott was separated from service, he was given a briefing about not abusing his title in private life. It appears that Elliott forgot the briefing 123 times in 2013-2014 and again in 2019 when he filed his candidate paperwork.

Your intrepid blogger may well avail himself of more of Mr. Elliott’s Form 700’s given the 123(!) gifts he took as a sitting supervisor in just two years as this appears to be a top story of the 2020 CA-10 Race.

End note = CA-10 refers to California’s 10th Congressional District. It is currently infested by Democrat Josh Harder. It includes some of San Joaquin County and all of Stanislaus County in Central CA
