- Law Cases

(May 12, 2010) — On May 10, 2010, Capt. Pamela Barnett (Ret.) filed a lawsuit against Debra Bowen, current California Secretary of State, on the grounds that Bowen has allowed an ineligible candidate to have his name placed on the ballot for the November 2010 election.
The website detailing Bowen’s duties as Secretary of State reads, in part: “Secretary Bowen is also responsible for helping to carry out election laws and campaign disclosure requirements by maintaining a statewide database of registered voters, certifying the official lists of candidates for each election, tracking and certifying ballot initiatives, compiling election returns, and certifying the election results for all state and federal contests.”
Captain Barnett is the Northern campaign manager for Dr. Orly Taitz, who filed several cases in California and Washington, DC asking the courts to hear evidence against Barack Hussein Obama II’s eligibility to serve as president under Article II, Section1 of the U.S. Constitution. Taitz is now a candidate for Secretary of State on the Republican ticket.
In an interview with Captain Barnett today, she discussed the framework of her case and the results she hopes to realize from it.
MRS. RONDEAU: When did you first consider filing a lawsuit against the named parties, and are they aware of the suit at this point?
CAPT. BARNETT: I decided to sue last week when I realized that Debra Bowen would allow unqualified (according to California election law) Damon Dunn to remain on the ballot after multiple complaints from me and others. I do not know if they are aware yet, but I plan on having them serviced tomorrow.
MRS. RONDEAU: Why is Dunn ineligible to run for Secretary of State?
CAPT. BARNETT: Dunn broke Federal Election law on his voter registration form when he excluded previous addresses where he was registered to vote, thereby rendering it an illegitimate registration. Because of that and when he received his nomination paperwork, he does not meet California election codes to legally be on the ballot.
MRS. RONDEAU: Do you know when the case will be scheduled for a hearing or any preliminary actions?
CAPT. BARNETT: I’m not sure.
MRS. RONDEAU: What type of remedy are you seeking?
CAPT. BARNETT: I am seeking to have Damon Dunn, Republican Candidate for CA Secretary of State; Debra Bowen, current CA Secretary of State; and Edmund G. Brown taken off both the primary and general election ballots. I am also seeking to have the AG’s office invesitgate Obama’s online forged certifications of live birth. Hopefully this would lead to criminal prosecution.
MRS. RONDEAU: Does the lawsuit get to the heart of the eligibility of Damon Dunn?
CAPTAIN BARNETT: Yes, the lawsuit clearly points out that Dunn is not legally qualified to be on the Republican ballot for Secretary of State. The evidence is overwhelming at this point, but there is even more to come at trial. The evidence will prove him to be ineligible and the Secretary of State would be breaking the law to allow Dunn to stay on the ballot. By supporting fraud she would be committing fraud and would also be liable for damages to Orly Taitz for causing her to deplete her campaign contributions to run against an ineligible candidate. My goal is to have Dunn removed from the primary ballot.
MRS. RONDEAU: How does the eligibility or lack thereof of Obama figure into your case?
CAPTAIN BARNETT: I am demanding that the AG investigate the who, what, where, when, why and how of Obama’s forged online birth certificates. By having the forgeries confirmed by the CA AG office, I would believe they would be entitled to see a real certification of live birth if it exists. Of course I would love to have the CA AG office thoroughly investigate Obama’s ineligibility and the fraud around it by filing a RICO lawsuit to see how deep the rabbit hole goes. In a just United States of America, the RICO case would be done and the AG would file a lawsuit to to rescind California’s electoral votes because of Obama’s fraud.
MRS. RONDEAU: In which district was the case filed, and who is the judge (or do you know yet)?
CAPT. BARNETT: California Superior Court. No judge has been assigned yet.
MRS. RONDEAU: Who is your attorney, or are you acting pro se? Right now I am Pro Se, but I might see if a civil rights attorney is interested in my case in the future.
MRS. RONDEAU: Are you the only plaintiff, or are there others?
CAPT. BARNETT: Because it is pro se, there are no other plaintiffs.
MRS. RONDEAU: Where does Bowen v. Lightfoot stand now?
CAPT. BARNETT: Lightfoot v. Bowen is long kicked out by SCOTUS after the case mysteriously disappeared from the SCOTUS online docket. However, Captain Pamela Barnett et al v. Obama is on appeal in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
