Today we encouraged all of our reader’s to vote for the Turtleboy Ticket by having people send us their completed ballots which we then posted to Facebook:


We literally got dozens of ballots just like that. It’s the only respectable way to vote. Next thing you know someone forwarded us this email that city clerk David Rushford sent them, thinking he was talking to Turtleboy:


Wait……what??? First let’s talk about the fact that YOUR poll workers were specifically asked by Turtle Riders if it was OK to take pictures of their ballots and put them on Facebook. Not one of them was told that they couldn’t. It happened city wide, so this one’s on you Dave. If it’s an important law then your workers should be aware of it. In our post we specifically told people to make sure they asked for permission first.

More importantly, you’re telling me that in the United States of America you can’t show the world who you voted for? What kind of communist bullshit is that? How the hell is this any different from posting on Facebook about who you voted for? It’s the exact same thing. All you’re doing is showing proof of it. But apparently we are living in a communist dictatorship in which the masses must sit still and not discuss who they voted for, lest the proletariat overhear something that might hurt the state.

Here’s the law:

Or allows the marking of his ballot to be seen by any person for any purpose not authorized by law.”

If any lawyers out there can explain exactly what that means, that would be great. But it would appear to me that showing your ballot for the world to see is not something that is “not authorized by law.” Therefore you can do it. But obviously common sense should tell you it’s OK to do this. Here’s another question for Mr. Rushford – how come you’re not busting the Worcester Firefighter’s Union for doing the EXACT SAME THING on their social media account:


Oh gee whiz, I wonder if it could be the fact that they endorsed Joe Petty and Matt Wally – two machine backed politicians who wanna lie to us and tell us that our city is safe and that we’re all “working together” to make Worcester the next great metropolis.

As a matter of fact, we got a tip from a trusted source downtown today that it was Joe Petty himself who made the call to the city clerk’s office to tip them off to this “violation.” Because they’re scared. This is what we’re up against people. The Jumpin’ Joe Petty Mafia, a subsidiary of the McGovern Crime Family. There is no length they will not go to in order to stop us. They think the city belongs to them and they’re willing to to find some random rule no one cares about in order to try to stop us.

Well guess what? Here’s a bunch more. We will post them all day whenever we feel like it because we have a constitutional right to do so:

Plenty more where that came from too. We will NEVER stop posting those. Because…FREEDOM mother fucker!!!

Here’s my question – why is the city of Worcester randomly deciding what laws it wants its citizens to follow? Back in December Joe Petty and Ed Augustus gave protesters “room to destroy” when they blockaded Lincoln Square and shut down Main Street for hours. Then they offered to drop the charges against the Kelley Square 4 for blocking that intersection, despite the fact that they impeded an ambulance and nearly started a riot. Then they failed to do anything about Mosaic Cultural Complex until we filed a Freedom of Information Act and Councillor Gaffney got the Council to audit them. Then they let four vice principals at North High get punched in the face and REHIRED both the Superintendent and Principal Lisa Dyer. Meanwhile the city is being taken over by drug dealers, innocent two year olds are getting shot in Plumley Village, homes are getting broken into all over the west side, and all Joe Petty can do is talk about how Worcester is statistically safer than Springfield and Lawrence.

The corruption goes on and on and on. And who are they going after as rampant criminality has taken hold of Worcester? Turtleboy of course. For the felony of posting some pictures of completed ballots that people filled out. Well good luck to them finding Turtleboy, because they sent that email to the wrong person today since they have no clue who any of the writers of this blog are, and even if they did, they’d never be able to prove it in court. That’s the beauty of the blog, it’s registered to no one. Literally untraceable. That’s why every time someone wants to “prove” who Turtleboy is they share a blog from Buffalo Bruises. Because that’s the best they can come up with. Buffalo fucking Bruises.  I’d like to thank Buffalo Bruises and Spanky McFarlane for pointing the witch hunt directly AWAY from us. Worked out perfectly.

But I almost wish they would bring it court. Because this SAME EXACT situation happened in New Hampshire last year, and the people fought against such a ridiculous, asinine law, and had it overturned in U.S. District Court:

The U.S. District Court for the District of New Hampshire recently struck down on First Amendment grounds a 2014 amendment to New Hampshire Revised Statute 659:35 that made it illegal for New Hampshire voters to post pictures of their completed ballots to social media. While several states have laws that disallow ballot sharing, RSA 659:35 was the first “to explicitly ban voters from sharing their marked ballots on social media.”

The case, Rideout v. Gardner, was filed by the New Hampshire Civil Liberties Union on behalf of three voters who were being investigated by the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office for violating the law banning ballot selfies during the September 2014 Republican primary elections.

The problem of course is that the Worcester ACLU obviously isn’t gonna sue on our behalf, because they’re run by a fat useless slug rake named Chris Robarge, who’s only interested in representing panhandlers and child molesters.

Nevertheless, I think a hungry attorney out there would have a field day with this one, but first the city would have to have the minerals to go after a civilian for posting a picture on Facebook. The New Hampshire law was struck down because it was put in place to prevent “buying” votes. But the plaintiff’s lawyers in that case pointed out that not once in American history has a picture of a ballot ever been used to “buy” votes. Case closed.

The bottom line is you can’t let complete idiots like this run your city:

Natalie O’Hayre is a Joe Petty hippie diehard. She hates freedom and Turtleboy Sports, and as you can see she thinks you should be fined $100 if you post your ballot online. Fuck that. This is America, the land of the free and the home of the brave. We didn’t break away from England so that hippies could tell us that we couldn’t proudly show the world who we voted for.

Voter turnout was piss poor today, as expected. It will more than double in November. We’ll have a recap of the results tomorrow. But in November we need ALL of you to get your asses out to the polls and vote for Michael Gaffney for Mayor, and Konnie Lukes and Rob Sargent for City Council.

    FYI @turtleboy, this exact issue was taken up by the Supreme Court a few months ago concerning ballot images being posted to FB in New Hampshire. SCOTUS found that any law forbidding the action is in fact unconstitutional, and overturned the law. Interestingly enough, the Plaintiff in the case was represented by the ACLU, the exact same organization that seemingly takes up every random cause under the sun in our lovely commonwealth.

    Gotta love Worcester for being unaware though, not like they’re paid to comply with federal law.

    maybe rushton is sending the same letter to Worcerster Fire 1009ers OR to himslef on filing financial statements; as required; Candidates must submit Campaign Finance Reports eight days prior to the Preliminary Election, eight days prior to the Municipal Election and an end-of-year report.. Can’t seem to find many and one is a wth type. Although, how come it wasn’t addressed to Dear Turtleboy & Turtlegirls. Speaking of counts and while it is fun to think about write-ins for amusement it’s likely the Turtlboy Votes were invalidated;

    “All write-in or sticker votes should include the correct name and address of the candidates. Courts have ruled that a vote should be counted whenever the intent of the voter can reasonably be determined, even if a voter omits the candidate’s address or makes a mistake in the name or address. In O’Brien v. Board of Election Commissioners, 257 Mass. 332, 338-339, 153 N.E. 553, 556 (1926) the court said “that if the intent of the voter can be determined with reasonable certainty from an inspection of the ballot, in the light of the generally known conditions attendant upon the election, effect must be given to that intent… The omission of the residence … on some ballots on which the name had been written by the voters rightly was found not to invalidate such votes.” Maiewski v. Board of Registrars of Voters, 347 Mass. 681, 199 N.E. 2d 680 (1964). This includes where a voter fails to complete the vote indicator next to the write-in space—the write-in or sticker vote will still be counted.”

    TB, when you’ve dug yourself a hole you keep on digging, eh?

    Where was the arrest threat? I must’ve missed it.

    Dig, dig, dig. You’re in the wrong on this, TB.

      Yeah, I see nothing in the e-mail that says you are being threatened with an arrest, just that you might be violating the law and it would be in your best interest to stop. Further, how do you know the firefighter’s union was not sent the same e-mail? You are just making some wild assumptions.

      ” Well good luck to them finding Turtleboy, because they sent that email to the wrong person today since they have no clue who any of the writers of this blog are, and even if they did, they’d never be able to prove it in court.”

      Don’t kid yourself. If you do something serious enough to warrant an arrest they will find you.

          Well, seeing how crime over-all is down in the city, I’d say they are definitely doing something. I know, those pesky facts getting in the way of your unfounded claims. Maybe calling people names more will help. Try that.

            Property crime went down. Violent crime is up. Check your precious numbers. Again…Dope. Take a stroll down chandler at 9pm alone and tell me you feel safe.

            Just murders and assaults are up, and not even by that much (though I do acknowledge the year is not over yet). Violent crimes like rape are way down, over a hundred less cases compared to 10 years ago. However, we have digressed from the point of the original comment. The comment was about the police being able to identify and locating TB in the event he/they break the law. Being an internet blog site, I’d put my money on if a law was broken it would be a non-violent one. So, seeing how they are effective verses non-violent crime it would be safe to assume they could track them down if needed.

    You should never lost your ballot to begin with. Pretty soon employers can start encouraging you to do it. Its a long way down. Ballots should be kept secret.

    My concern is that they don’t want you posting ballots because if you have 100 ballots with Turtleboy as a write in and then the official tally only comes up with, say, 30 Turtleboy votes, people would know something is up.

    Wouldn’t put it past them.

    You go get em Turtle Boy!!! Don’t let up on the beeeeeeotches for infringing on freedom of speech. How pathetic and un-american, but then what do you expect from the hippie supporting politicians.

  • September 9, 2015 at 6:05 am

    My one concern about ballot selfies is that in the future, an employer (or anyone else) could strongly encourage you to vote a particular way, then require a selfie as proof that you complied. I don’t think that’s far-fetched at all!

    Gee, so political endorsements and holding a sign for a candidate of your choice is also illegal? It should be. So should campaign contribution. They get reported by an official state agencies. They all show people who you support for office.
