Kathy Weppner Violates Federal Law

31 Mar

Kathy Weppner’s Facebook page contains this image: 

Notice the Congressional seal above the two “p”s? 

18 U.S. Code § 713 – Use of likenesses of the great seal of the United States, the seals of the President and Vice President, the seal of the United States House of Representatives, and the seal of the United States Congress

(a) Whoever knowingly displays any printed or other likeness of the great seal of the United States, or of the seals of the President or the Vice President of the United States, or the seal of the United States Senate, or the seal of the United States House of Representatives, or the seal of the United States Congress, or any facsimile thereof, in, or in connection with, any advertisement, poster, circular, book, pamphlet, or other publication, public meeting, play, motion picture, telecast, or other production, or on any building, monument, or stationery, for the purpose of conveying, or in a manner reasonably calculated to convey, a false impression of sponsorship or approval by the Government of the United States or by any department, agency, or instrumentality thereof, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six months, or both.

The Attorney General’s office may enjoin Weppner from using the House seal upon complaint by the Clerk of the House of Representatives. 

It should be noted that Weppner does not serve – nor has never served – in the House of Representatives. She is, however, the clownshoes-iest candidate ever to run for federal office, and to also enjoy the endorsement of a major party. 

Then again, Eddie Egriu has this inexplicable thing

You Can’t Vote for Lenny Roberto, Either.

I heard the audio from this “ad” on the radio this morning:


The problem is that the narrator doesn’t have a “relationship” with “incumbent Congressman Brian Higgins”.  I don’t know whether she went to Washington to talk with him, or called his office.  I don’t know if anyone was rude to her, but the person who wrote that ad and recorded that voiceover doesn’t live in NY-27.  I know who she is, and she lives in Clarence.  That’s in NY-26, which is represented by the essentially unopposed Chris Lee.  Not only that, but for some reason this Roberto-supporting, Paladino-backing tea partier is on the Clarence Democratic Committee.

Also, there’s been no cap-and-trade, nor has there been any amnesty.  Whatever.  It just makes the whole ad a big, fat lie.  About par for the course for the rabidly homophobic Roberto, who says that Washington is “destroying America” and wants to go to Washington with a “vendetta”.  Clownshoes.

This video is simply astonishing, and is emblematic of the fundamental ignorance of the Palinist “Mama Grizzly” right-wing.
