Jeanne E. Dixon Does Exist

Posted by on September 15 at 16:52 PM

The mysterious mayoral candidate sent me a package today. The enclosed letterfive pages, handwritten in prim school-teacher cursiveis addressed to Mr. Wayne Barnett, executive director of the city’s Department of Ethics and Elections. (In it, she refers to herself as the “1905 MAYORAL CANDIDATE”perhaps that explains why her election filing doesn’t list a phone number?)

Mr Barnett:

I am forwarding my answer here to the news media weeklys in the hope you will end the long series of oppressive threats to my campaign to cover up more of this office’s 2005 election frauds still before the publicThe Very Reason for which I determined at the last Minute to Campaign for the Mayoral position.

Her complaint? It seems to stem from a September 9 letter from the city, admonishing her for ignoring earlier city requests to file the proper campaign paperwork. “As of today, you have not responded to our request. The [filings] originally due on August 12, 2005, are now twenty-seven days late,” executive director Barnett wrote. “Therefore we are compelled to impose late filing penalties of $540.”

I’m sure somewhere in Ms. Dixon’s five-page retort, she explains where she’s coming from, and why the city’s wrong. (I can somewhat make out that she claims she did file the paperwork…) But the cursive is giving me a headache. I’m going to leave this one to the experts at the PDCMs. Dixon cc’d them, tooto sort out.
