Patient and campaign donor Rick Bandy contributed to the Annette Bosworth smokescreen over the weekend with a video statement that is entirely irrelevant to the felony charges the former fake Senate candidate now faces for perjury and false filing. Bandy's irrelevance is suggested further by the fact that, according to a source watching the comings and goings at the Hughes County Courthouse yesterday, Bandy was not among the witnesses called to testify before a grand jury convened to hear evidence on the shenanigans perpetrated by Bosworth on her nominating petition.
But perhaps Bandy is relevant to the discussion of Bosworth's illegal petition activity. Two sources have told me that, in the week before the petition deadline of March 25, they saw Rick Bandy carrying a Bosworth petition sheet and collecting signatures. However, if you review Bosworth's petition, you'll see that not one sheet bears Bandy's name as the oath-swearing, notarized circulator.
- My sources are mistaken.
- Bandy collected signatures but did not submit the sheet.
- Bandy collected signatures, but someone else illegally signed the circulator's oath.
I've given Mr. Bandy a shout via Facebook to see if he can help his pick the correct explanation.
