Jean Schmidt’s Fraud Conviction to be Reviewed by House Ethics Committee

By Nate Noy

Let’s review the facts:

(1) In April of 2006 Jean Schmidt was reprimanded by the Ohio Elections Commission for a “reckless disregard for truth” and “making false and misleading statements” for violating ORC 3517.21 by lying about her fake college degree and endorsements she never actually received.

(2) ORC 3599.42 Prima-facie case of fraud states: “A violation of any provision of Title XXXV [35] of the Revised Code constitutes a prima-facie case of fraud within the purview of such title.”

(3) The US House Committee on Standard of Official Conduct Rules 1 and 2 state:

1. A Member, officer, or employee of the House of Representatives shall conduct himself at all times in a manner which shall reflect creditably on the House of Representatives.
2. A Member, officer, or employee of the House of Representatives shall adhere to the spirit and the letter of the Rules of the House of Representatives and to the rules of duly constituted committees thereof.

(4) The Nancy Pelosi led House purports to be “cleaning up the House.” It logically follows that it will start by enforcing its own ethics rules. It also follows that a member that has been publicly reprimanded for fraud by the State Elections Commission has by definition violated both rules 1 and 2 above.

Next Steps:

The process for bringing a formal complaint is fairly complex. However, there is a clear process in place. In a nutshell a sitting member of the House must certify any complaint brought by a non-member.

So, next week I will be filing a formal complaint with the US House against Jean Schmidt for her fraud conviction. I will be sending a copy of my complaint to: Speaker Pelosi; Minority Leader John A. Boehner; the Chair of the House Committee on Standard of Official Conduct Ohioan Stephanie Tubbs Jones; and Steve Chabot.

If the House is serious about cleaning itself up it should start with its most corrupt, dishonest and incompetent member, i.e. Jean Schmidt. It should also start with a slam dunk case, which this obviously is.

I am hopeful that the Republican Party will embrace this action as well. Jean Schmidt was reprimanded for perpetrating a FRAUD on the public. Anyone that commits a fraud should be held accountable for his or her actions, and it’s time we start holding Jean Schmidt to this standard.

Jean Schmidt Votes to Raise Inflation and Unemployment Rates

By Nate Noy

Yesterday 233 Congressional Democrats and 82 Republicans in Name Only (RINOs) voted to raise the federal minimum wage; an action that anyone with even one college level economics course realizes will lead to a major jump in both the rates of inflation and unemployment in the US.

Only 116 Republicans stood their ground: in Ohio this included Real Republicans: John Boehner, Steve Chabot, David Hobson, Jim Jordan, and Pat Tiberi. This also means that a number of so-called Republicans failed their base and allowed an action that will result in dire consequences on the US economy.

Ohio-2 RINO Jean Schmidt’s Yes vote should come as no surprise to anyone. Schmidt who’s college transcript became a matter of public record in April when she submitted it in her defense of her fake college degree conviction by the Ohio Elections Commission has taken Intro to Economics at least four times in her life, apparently she needs to take this course at least one more time to even begin to comprehend what she just became a part of.

This woman tries to pass herself off as a “conservative.” I wonder if any of her SOB shills like Bizzyblog, Viking Spirit and Matt Hurley can find a way to justify this vote by Schmidt?

Perhaps next year when unemployment is at 8-10% and it costs $4.00 for a gallon of milk a Real Republican will be able to hold Schmidt accountable for this vote by trouncing her in the next OH-2 primary. I also hope that anyone that considers themselves a “conservative” will begin to call for the heads of RINOs like Schmidt and Deborah Pryce.

There is no hiding from this vote Jean.


Back to Blogging

After taking a few months off on sabbatical I have decided to reinvigorate this blog now that Congress is back in action. My first post of the new year will of course be targeted at everyone’s favorite RINO: Jean Schmidt.
